What is the history and popularity of the app?

Once more users discover the benefits of CurrentlyDown, there’s a good chance it will be bookmarked and recommended often.

What are the differences to other apps?

There are many ways to check website availability on the web for free. CurrentlyDown stands out because it brings a clean professional interface to users that’s very easy to navigate.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

CurrentlyDown looks unique while maintaining a pleasantly professional tone. Users can easily find the basic tools right on the homepage. The site manages to throw in some extras, like the notable outages list, while making the main URL entry field a prominent feature that most users can’t miss. Overall CurrentlyDown is a great choice for novice internet users because its interface is so simple to master.

How does the registration process work?

CurrentlyDown offers a simple service that doesn’t require the use of an account. No registration option is available, but that’s a good thing. Asking users to sign in just to enter a URL would deter most visitors. The site manages to provide helpful details without asking users to provide their personal data. Users who would like to participate in discussions in the comments section of a URL page will have to log in to a Facebook account. This is not required to use other features.

What does it cost to use the application?

CurrentlyDown is available at no cost to the user. There are no fees for searching and users can search as many times as they like. This really should be a free service considering how many other sites offer it at no cost as well. Users get a great value by investing a few seconds or a couple minutes to search for site availability and history.

Who would you recommend the application to?

CurrentlyDown is a great resource for anyone who needs to check the status of a web page. Individuals who need to do an occasional one-off check as well as professionals who manage or own websites can benefit from the application. There are no fees, a clean interface and a number of helpful extras that allow CurrentlyDown to go the extra mile for users.
