Great Product 4/5
Great product, works very well, very reliable and easy to use. I like the recent changes as well.
What I would like to see, however, is a way of measuring my home WiFi, and where my weak spots are. This would help decide if a booster is needed, where it should be located, etc. With the recent move toward a “smart home”, testing tools can be quite beneficial.
Thanks for this product and keep up the good work!
Not accurate by far 1/5
I have a 200Mb/s connection and the app never goes higher than 40-50Mb. Testing it on the website works fine though.
It's just OK.
A Bridge too Far 3/5
Love the app, but the new improved version was a colossal step backwards. The app was perfect six months ago. Hint hint. Different doesn’t equal better.
Great app 5/5
Very good app and the company actually listens to the peoples reviews and then updates the app accordingly. Great app for finding your modem upload and downloading speed and all your router wifi speeds...............…...........................................................,,..............
Great app! 4/5
By II BarKer II
I’ve used this app for years now as a baseline for internet performance. Only problem I have now is that I have 500Mbps down and would like to be able to change the file size I download. Some tests are done is 1-2 seconds. While others never get up to full speed. Sometimes it’s like a car at a stop light. Once it tunes green you slowly speed up. Sometimes I only get up to 250Mbps or so and was still going up but stops due to the file size. Can this be fixed?
The best it gets - missing “only upload” 4/5
By Mackenzie K
This is the best app for speed testing. Only feature that’s missing is the ability to skip the download test and just test upload speed (or vice-versa). I broadcast video from my phone so usually only care about upload speed on cellular, without having to waste download from my data plan to test it. Great app overall!
The BEST speed tester app😊
Great App 5/5
Been using this app for years. Always gets the job done and super fast too! Very easy for users as well. The biggest thing I miss from the app is the Easter egg for ookla rip ookla at least you finally made it to your final form HAUNT!
HELPFUL APP! 5/5
By FL SunSet
This is an informative and helpful app. It was actually recommended to me by a T-Mobile support rep. I’ve since used it several times and it does what I need done at no cost to me.
Won’t save favorites! Update! 1/5
By The Riddick
Total crap. What’s the point of favorites if it doesn’t save it like Ookla app used to do!..... How do you get paid for this crap?
Every time I open the app it selects a new server. Idiot!.... 🤨
Updated... still doesn’t save favorite server..
I must say you have some very unskilled programmers.
Why don’t you guys offer a widget ?
Where’s that coverage tab that we’re going to get? Android has it and it’s nice to have on iOS.
Solid functionality, but my "permanent ad removal" IAP is no longer honored in the latest version.
App looks bad, old way looks much better
Going down hill 2/5
Used to be a reliable speed test app. Now it won’t connect to the server to test a networks connection. Down loaded the the SpeedSmart app and happy with it.
Add things back... 1/5
Why minimum speed is 15MB/s ... make it less for lower speed connections.. it was perfect in the previous update...
Deleting this app after using it my whole life with my phone...
Ookla lives on! 5/5
Aside from this being the most reliable and accurate app that I use on a regular basis, it’s clear that the developers are the kind of people I would love to know in real life.
Even after a redesign of the App, they still included a reference to the old Easter Egg that they had in the previous version. I used to love pulling down on the screen to see the (sometimes frightening) images of Ookla the cat and am delighted that they left a small piece of that in place with this version. I’ll admit, I kept pulling down on the screen over and over just in case there was more to see!
This app is awesome! RIP Ookla!!
New and improved 5/5
Loving the new interface!
Useless mow that app doesn't save my preferred server 1/5
I have used this app for many years. It used to work very well. I used it all the time. Many times a day.
There is no point in testing the speed to the local sever or servers right next to you.
This used to work extremely well.
I'd always wanted a search option for servers instead of Do you spend 10 minutes scrolling through hundreds of servers to get to the one I want. It induces carpal tunnel syndrome. But I'd be happy with that as long as I could save the server as we were always able to do.
This started happening recently.
Perhaps something changed and the developers could look into it. Otherwise, the results are not useful.
I rarely write reviews. But I did love this app. And it was super useful until this problem surfaced. Please try to fix it.
Support ios 9 1/5
By أنس المفتي
Please update the app to be compitable with ios 9
So Alot of devices can upgrade the app
Poor UI 1/5
It used to be one of the best speed test apps, recent major change seems done backwards! The app interface is way basic and poorly developed! Doesn’t compliment the beauty of iOS 11 theme or optimized for iPhone X screen
Bad app! 1/5
Works Great 5/5
Inaccurate speeds 1/5
Since the last update, both my ipad and iphone are telling me I’m getting a max of 40mbps, while my macbook pro and other computers are telling me 130+. All devices are being tested wirelessly. This app is now garbage. Please fix as i really liked this app.
Better than the rest 4/5
By Brian reviewed this
The server auto selection works even without the app requiring location access. Unlike every other speed test app I tried. This app is nice and simple and uncluttered if you pay to remove the stupid ads.
I think a useful feature would be an option to select how big a file to download for the test. I recently upgraded my internet speed and the test ends before the speed really gets going. Same for upload, but opposite. My isp has really low upload speeds so no need to wait through a large upload.
This app has been so helpful! It’s helped me figure out that my old ISP had provided terrible speeds compared to my new one, which always has speeds faster than what I pay for. I would love to have the option to login to my account that I use on the web version.
May Set The Servers 1/5
I Don’t know what they do, but before updating the servers what The test use, was the corrects, server from where I live. No servers from other country. Fix that please, because the Speedtest and PING Test is not certain
What happened to kb/sec ?
The App 5/5
The app is very pleasing to the eye and looks very advanced. Pretty much the app just serves its purpose.
Love the app! But the icon.. 5/5
Yea, it's a small thing. I love the app for testing purposes but please bring back the old blue icon logo for the app. It looked more prettier hands down than the black dark and dingy one.
Works great usually 5/5
This app has been very handy, speedy, nice graphics. I like how in the history view there's different symbols for wi-fi versus cellular. I wish there was an option to add notes and GPS location. Great to see it’s now optimized for iPhone X.
Must have for any home network 5/5
I’ve used this App for 2+ years now and it has always worked, provides me the info I need and been very USER FRIENDLY, Both in operating and reporting format! I recommend this app to anyone who would like to keep tabs on how their internet is working and keep their ISP’s honest. They say & you pay for xxmbps but is that what your really getting????
Best Application ❤️ 5/5
Stop reading and download it if you are finding internet speed test app.
I request developers to please add a feature so I can know where a test is conducted so I know where connection is best.
New app slower 2/5
This new UI/app consistently shows slower download speeds than the previous version. I still have the previous version on my iPad and it shows the same download as it always has. Old app shows 230Mbit new shows 193Mbit.
I have noticed the exact same thing on my computer. The regular Speedtest.net shows the same 230 down but if I switch to the beta version (same UI as the new iOS version) it also shows the lower 193 down.
Reliable speed tests 5/5
Ookla has been around for years, and they’ve always provided an easy way to test your network speed. It’s great to check if my ISP is throttling me, but soon throttling will be legal 😭.
I definitely recommend this app to anyone looking to find the fastest network in their area.
Been using this for years, looks slick now 5/5
This is the first thing I go to if I'm having a network problem. I've been using this for many years now.
Wow, Speedtest grew up. I like the new look, but miss Ookla the cat.
Not as good as the old app 1/5
Don’t like the update at all, looks ugly and old version was perfect what change it, please change it back
Erroneous reading 4/5
There seems to be no way to report errors in this app. All nearby servers report download speeds of about 40 Mbps, except Albuquerque Comcast which reads about 5 Mbps. Other apps and PCs report correctly for this server. Looks like this app is reporting MBps instead of Mbps for downloads from just this one server.
Edit: It took about a month, but this weird issue is now fixed.
Edit: But now its results are off again, reading about half of what it should.
Edit: Try clicking the “developer’s website” link below. What do you get? A pretty picture and a link back to where you already were.
Version 4.0.1 3/5
Despite the developer’s response, even when selecting a favorite server, the app does not store the chosen server for future speed testing, thus requiring the user to continue to have to go through the process of selecting a favorite server prior to testing. Also, I understand the need for ads on the free app version, but the layout is annoying!
Bring back old look! 1/5
This new version looks like a fisher price Down syndrome toddler made it. Must be some new manager idiot who has to make his mark. Change it back or make an option for us to switch back. It was perfect the way it was, everybody loved it, it was unique, looks like an aol dialup test from 98 now.
I do not like the new look. 3/5
By Disney Joe
I do not like the new look. The last version looked much nicer and easier to read.
Latest update 5/5
I love the look of the update!
No Ookla 4/5
Love this app. But I miss Ookla why did you take him away.
What I would like to see.....
Buttons to switch from cell signal to Wi-Fi signal and back in the app.
By Ice Mage
Would like to see an Apple Watch version too!
With or without you 5/5
Can’t live with the ads. Cannot live without the app. 5 stars.
Unsure about the accuracy of the tests... 2/5
I like the new UI and all with this update but as somebody else stated here, I am having trouble trusting the accuracy of the speedtests. Last night I was trying to watch Netflix on the PlayStation and it was impossible, wouldn’t load even a second of content. I did a speed test directly on the PlayStation and it showed 0.256Mbps download speed (confirmed when tested on the TV’s network test as well) but at the same time I decided to test on my phone using this app and it showed me 13.6Mbps for the same network.
I don’t understand how this app got such a significantly different result, but it seems to me that this result is the inaccurate one, or I would at least be able to watch the movie in low quality.
Maybe it’s because the app picks the most optimum server? If so, it does not represent the most realistic scenario and maybe should be fixed...
Use it all the time 5/5
Simple, functional, and the new UI is really well done. Keep up the good work Ookla!
Love new UI but... 4/5
I’ve used your site exclusively for over a decade or more (not sure when you began) but being a Network Engineer I wanted the best and I found the best. So of course many years ago when you dev the iOS app I had to have it (and of course supported you by purchasing the remove ads in app...)
Ok so obviously I believe you to have the superior product so as a long time user I MUST express one simple complaint to do w/ the new UI aesthetics. Now I’ve spoken to colleagues and so far they all agree w/ me.
That stumpy needle must GO! It just looks like the tip broke off and you continued on w/o fixing it Ha-Ha-Ha
What do you say we work on that? I’ll give you the 5th star if you’ll follow my demands Ha-Ha-Ha
It’s easily a 5 Star product everyone I’m just holding one star hostage for now! Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha
