I live in a weird area of my city. Apparently I can get DSL but it's not as fast as they promised because I'm too far away from the start of the tubes, or some such silly nonsense. Unfortunately what that really means is that sometimes my DSL is so painful slow I feel like I'm on dial-up and keep waiting to hear that horrible modem sound. It's bad enough that I'm looking for other options. It's bad enough that this app is very useful.
This app is super useful for techy and nontechy alike. You don't have to know what you're looking at to have this app on your phone, all you really have to do is compare your web speed in a couple of different places and soon you'll have a good feel for the speed of the internet wherever you are. The app keeps at least a few test logs so comparing is easy.
Unfortunately while it does tell you about your internet connection speeds, it will not fix the issue. For travelling it could be pretty helpful to determine where you want to buy that cup of internet coffee!
