App Reviews

  • Excellent utility

    By TJJ99
    I’m just a normal user of iOS devices and probably don’t understand all that I could do with Ookla, but I love having it available in my “utilities” folder. I probably use it 3 or 4 times a month, both traveling and around town, as I find myself running into “performance” issues. With Ookla, I can quickly pinpoint if there are any connectivity/speed issues with the internet provider at hand or if there are other things I need to check out. Just last week at home, I thought I noticed an issue. I ran Ookla and discovered that for the first time since we signed up with CableOne as our provider 18 months ago, they were delivering only half the guaranteed download rate. I called them, they verified the problem was theirs and resolved it. Without Ookla, I would not have had the data to back up my concerns when I called them.
  • One of the few apps I pay for!

    By Shanexxl
    I use this app in many different aspects. Not only is it super helpful at home in testing both my 2.4 GHZ speeds but also in mapping my 5GHZ signal strength and assisting in laying out range boosters to get the most out of my ISP. I also use this app in the work place and assist in internet hook ups and networking on the job so my bosses company can run fluidly. I love the ability to hold the internet companies accountable and to detect problems early by simply running a speed test. My only suggestion to the devs would be to add that info to the home screen when running the test. I’d love to be able to see the signal strength and potential packet loss and such right on the main test screen but with some knowledge and know how this info can be guessed at for the meantime. Thanks again Ookla for an awesome app and hope to see more in the future.

  • Ad free version breaks the app completely

    By d-bass
    UPDATE: fixed, bravo! 5* Ookla is a great app, but has become useless. Given the new data directives, I opened the app this evening and was presented with privacy options (I have been using the app over a year). I chose to pay in order to be ad free and wound up in a loop. The GO button would appear momentarily and then immediately is replaced by the Security Option screen. When I clock done I get the GO screen which is immediately replaced by the Security screen. A loop. I see I have an update and figure this must be the issue. I get the update and, for good measure, reboot. Now I get the Security screen and am asked to again pay for the ad free version - it’s ground hog day and I appear to be out a buck. Kindly fix this & I’d be delighted to give you 5 stars.
  • Please fix Glitch - App rendered useless

    By acemanawc
    Update: just checked my wife’s iPhone 7 Plus, also uses iOS 11.3.1. Same problem. Please remove this Privacy Page please! Thank You. I uninstalled app, shut down my iPhone X, then reinstalled the Speedtest app. I accepted the location and allowed data sharing. Again, when I tapped Done it keeps going back to the Privacy Page over and over. I’m about to head out on vacation for 10 days. I use this app the most when I’m traveling to ensure bandwidth integrity. When will you issue fix for iOS? Thank you. Ok, I have the paid version. I reviewed the new privacy policy. I tap next, then Done. Then it keeps going back to the “Welcome to Speedtest, Lets review your privacy options page with the giant padlock in the middle. What’s going on? I keep tapping Next, then Done over and over and it keeps going back the the privacy page. Please fix ASAP. Thank You.
  • Ookla always great - til now 😫

    By TRenderings
    Here’s what changed: Data share Privacy Policy Review Prompts that WON’T LET you continue on to the Speed Test because ‘Let’s Review Your Options’ gives you no real option to continue. It seems the app as noted in the update is seeking to gain access to your IP address and other information that was no big deal before. You get a choice to decline yet can’t use the app if you decline as it stays stuck on the screen not letting you break free of it to move on to use Ookla Speed test! Either fix this by admitting it was a bug or face other reviews seeking the changes and further criticism of what was a perfectly great app now run down by this new idea - the need for data and to share that private data!!! - not amused
  • Effective and efficient

    By Nytron 117
    Positive: Most people just leave a five star review and don’t actually say a lot about it, but I really do believe this app deserves is. It’s a very quick, reliable app that runs efficiently and effectively. Speedtest is one the fastest apps(of any type) to load. Even with a measly 2mbps out in the boonies where I live, Speedtest is extremely fast with providing live speeds to me in a split second. It never freezes up on me like many of my built in iPhone apps do. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for an app of this kind. Negative: this may sound a bit odd, but I am trying to think of any honest improvements that could be made, but I cannot think of one. 👍
  • Great app!

    By geenosr
    I use this app all the time to identify my internet connections and speeds. I am going to buy your “ad-removal”, and is like to tell you that I use your app way more than I ever thought that I would! I agree with some of your reviewers that a notes app would really benefit my use of your app. Geo location would be nice to have in the notes section, but please don’t keep or track that information. I know there’s no such thing as anonymity any more, but less tracking is always better and it makes you all at Ookla look a little more honest to your customers! Thank you for reading my comments.
  • Personal 1st choice for checking internet performance

    By cp77
    I have been using this app for a while now and find it to be an invaluable tool for evaluating the overall performance of an internet connection, both wifi and cell. The only recommendation I have for the developers is that when I set and save my preferred internet connection in the app Settings on the OS-X laptop edition, it resets back to its default setting after each use. I also have the app on my iPhone 7 Plus and it stays where I set it, not duplicating the issue found on the laptop. For the developers: MacBook Pro 17” 2009 year model, OS-X 10.9.5
  • Ookla lives on!

    By gotpancreas
    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!!
