Speedtest has become the go-to app to test your carrier’s network speed. With just one tap, you can determine your carrier’s network latency, download, and upload capabilities. The app also comes with easy tracking and sharing capabilities so you can brag to your friends or complain to your provider if need be. A few days ago, Ookla, the company behind Speedtest, teased bandwidth testers everywhere about an upcoming new version of their app. Version 3.0 has finally hit the Play Store.

What’s New in version 3.0?

– Completely revamped interface optimized for latest-generation phones
– Improved testing engine to better measure modern connection speeds
– Ability to remove ads for $0.99
– Map display for each test in results history
– Other various bug fixes and improvements
– Upcoming features: Improved tablet support, more language localizations and improved result sharing

While the app brings about a newly designed user interface and some new features, it’s still not a Holo Android app nor does it follow the modern Android design guidelines. In fact, it looks like a straight up iOS port. It does however come with a bunch of funny cat images and the Internet does love cats. So there’s that.
