Performance Improvements

We want to thank everyone for their patience during our unexpected downtime and poor loading performance of BenchApp.com and our apps over the last two days. We have greatly improved our server capacity and we hope to serve you an even faster experience than every before.

Please note: Poor BenchApp Performance

We're aware of the poor performance and increased lag when using BenchApp website and app, and we truly apologize for the inconvenience. We are working as fast as we can to improve and exceed the performance you have come to know and enjoy. Please bare with us!

Additional Downtime for server upgrades

We are working to provide an even better experience for all BenchApp users, and to do this we must again increase our server capacity. We will be taking BenchApp offline for 30 minutes starting at 1pm PST March 8th. We apologize for the inconvenience and short notice but we hope that the upgrades will be worth it! Stay tuned.

Scheduled Downtime

As BenchApp continues to grow in popularity, so does the taxation on our servers. At 9pm PST tonight (Feb 27th), we will be upgrading our servers to provide a more reliable BenchApp experience. We hope this downtime will be less than 20 minutes. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
