Are you a network nut? You know, a person who constantly wonders how fast his or her network connections are? Do you have bookmarked two or three sites where you regularly go to check your bandwidth?
iNetwork Speed Test, from Xcellent Creations, is just the thing for speed junkies. It's very simple and it works as advertised.
Launch iNetwork Speed Test and within a few seconds you'll be on your way to measuring the download speed of your network connection on Wi-Fi, EDGE or 3G.
You can repeatedly test your connection speed and save the last 10 results, including the location where you ran the test.
If you want to store more than 10 tests, you can sign up for a free account and plot your results on a map. That's a ho-hum feature for me and I'm inclined to think the company just wants my email address to send me stuff I don't want but maybe I'm just paranoid.
After each test run, iNetwork Speed Test asks if you would like to upload your results. I can see why Xcellent Creations would want that info (to analyze and compare) but I'd like the option to turn off that "feature." I figure that if I have to pay for an app, I shouldn't have to be bothered to provide the seller with free content all the time. It's a small point, but that's just the way I am.
