Great App for holding ISPs accountable
I love using this app to check my internet speed. Having recently switched from AT&T to Comcast, I wanted to make sure I was getting my money's worth. At first, I didn't see an improvement and in some cases worst performance even though I was paying $50 more per month. Then I figured out that it was how my VPN to my workplace was throttling things and have since come up with a workaround. I would suggest it would be helpful to have the tool show where the "bottlenecks" might be in performance so the layperson can learn more quickly why their actual performance isn't as expected. The other improvement I would suggest would be to making it easier to find an "optimal" server. Some times that can be delayed with no explanation. With those two improvements, I would give this app a "5-star" rating
V1.4 Has Bugs - NOW FIXED!!!
This is a fantastic app. The major bugs disussed below were fixed by the developer only a day after they were reported. I appreciate their super-fast attention to this. Best speed testing app out there and also the prettiest interface IMHO.
I love this app and have used it for a longtime. The most recentupdate has some obvious bugs that I can;t beleive they did not catch before releasingthis to the public. You used ot be abe to calibrate the dial so that….for example….if your connections are generally in the range of 0-100 mbps, you could set the top end of the dial to 100. Now it is set to 500 and there’s no way to change it. But the new “added feature” of this current release is that the indicater needle on the dial now points in the 180 degree opposite direction of the measurement. So if your speed is being measured as 30,the needle points to the exact other side of th dial and says soething like 400. If your speed is 95, the needle point back at like 0 or 5. How do software engineers let stuff out the door like this? I’m still rating this a 3 because I like this app so much, but these bugs need to be addressed FAST.
Developer Response ,
Sorry about that. Odd one that didn't show up in the test build. We submitted an update with a fix, which should be available soon. Sorry again, and thanks for using Speedtest.
Just notice that you had a Mac Desktop app!!
I have been a longtime Ookla Speedtest user for many moons…. I retired from IBM in 2008 with 30 years of working with computers/networks Speedtest has been my go to network test for as long as I can remember. I always found that depending on your web browser you could get different results and its far better to have a local run application to cut out as much of noise from applications to get a truer picture of what your results are.
This app is well put together and the options it gives you are just what is needed with no extra fluff. The response is quick and the reporting is reliable, free from all the overhead of the browser and any cache etc that can and would be in the way.
The options of saving your test along with running it in the menu bar and haveing the capability of uploading it to about 23 different places (depending on your Mac’s configuration) listed under your System Preferences/Extensions/Share Menu
You still have the option of selecting where you want to test to. If is set automaticly to the closest point from you ISP.
The graphical interface showing in a line graph of both incoming and outgoing testing shows how smooth or dirty you results can be. With showing a more flatline giving you the cleaner results of your ISP.
