    Floating Network Monitor's review

    Published: 2013-10-14, by Manu Galvez.

    Floating Network Monitor provides real info about upload and download speed on top of any other app

    • Useful
    • Accurate
    • Highly customizable
    • Needs history data (MAX upload/download, data/wifi charts, etc.)
    • Needs automatized actions.

    "Monitor your mobile Internet speed"

    Concerned about Internet speed on your mobile device? Now you can easily keep track of upload/download speed over WiFi, 2G, 3G and 4G thanks to Floating Network Monitor.

    Floating Network Monitor adds a floating widget to your homescreen which is always visible on top of any other apps. The floating widget displays download and upload speed in b/kb/mb per second quite accurately. Tap "start/stop monitor" from the app to enable/disable it.

    Although the widget is useful per se, you can customize its appearance at your whim. Thus, you can choose text size, background, text and shadow color, start-up location, units and many other parameters. Some of those parameters such as start on boot-up, always on top, full-screen notification or full-screen hide are restricted features that will only unlock after upgrading to the PRO version.

    I'm missing some other features a record history for maximum and minimum download/upload speed, charts comparing 2G/3G/4G/WIFI and automatized actions for when download speed reaches a given speed.

    Besides, the app is simple yet accurate and useful. Recommended.
