Introducing the new Akamai State of the Internet iOS App

Over the last six years, Akamai's State of the Internet Report has primarily been available as a PDF download or a printed report. We've also made related data available through map- and graph-based visualizations on the State of the Internet page on www.akamai.com, as well as posting related news and information on the @akamai_soti Twitter feed.

Today, we're bringing that all together in a new mobile app for iOS users. Available for download from the iOS App Store, this new app brings it all together through an easy-to-use interface.
The app provides interactive access to key State of the Internet metrics, updated alongside each quarter's report, including the ability to drill down on trends over time at a country level. In addition, each new issue of the report will be available through the app as it is published, and a library of past issues of the report is available as well. Selected figures within each issue have been transformed into interactive charts, allowing readers to explore the data in more detail. The app also includes a feed of State of the Internet-related news items, derived from the @akamai_soti Twitter feed, and presented in a magazine-style format.

With the app, you now have a wealth of insight about Internet connectivity and attack traffic right at your fingertips (Win bar bets! Impress your friends!), and it's easier than ever to catch up on reading back issues of the report (great for those nights when you just can't fall asleep...).

Thank you to our friends at Epictions for their great work in developing the app. If you have any comments, questions, or feedback about the app, please send them to us at stateoftheinternet@akamai.com. (And to head off the inevitable question, we are exploring making Android-compatible versions of the app available later this year, but we are not committing to do so.)
