Speedtest updates app with new UI and features

Speedtest has released a new version of its app on iOS that comes with a new design and couple of new features.

The new UI is consistent with the design that we have been seeing on other platforms, such as the web version, the Windows 10 version and the Apple TV version. Gone is the old, large speedometer with bright colors and glowing textures, replaced by an indigo background and more modern minimal textures with a new condensed font.

At the bottom are three tabs, one each for the speed test, results and settings. Settings has the same options as before, including ability to switch between Mbps and MBps, and switch the gauge from 100Mbps to 500Mbps or even 1Gbps.

The speed test page now also shows you jitter and packet loss for your network alongside ping. After the speed test is over, you can also rate your ISP.

Lastly, the app has a new icon with black background.

The new design on mobile is currently only available on iOS.
