StumbleUpon wants to make it easier for you to discover new online content and the company has just released an app for the Apple iPhone and Android.
If you’re not familiar with the site, it lets you find new web sites and images based on your preferences. You just narrow down what categories you’re interested in, hit the StumbleUpon button and then you’re off to a site you’re probably not familiar with. It’s a simple way to kill some boredom, I’ve found.
The StumbleUpon app for the Apple iPhone and Android will load your account history if you sign on and it will automatically send you to the mobile-friendly versions of sites like YouTube, Flickr and more. You’ll be able to share your favorite sites via Twitter, Facebook and with other StumbleUpon users.
“Following the success of our iPad app, we’re excited to extend the stumbling experience to iPhone and Android device users, letting people explore the best of the web at any time no matter where they are,” said Garrett Camp, founder and CEO, in a prepared statement. “Downloading the app is easy and once logged-in, users can discover great online content that’s tailored to their preferences.
I downloaded the app for Android and I liked the interface because it was clean and easy to use. I stumbled on a few articles that caught my attention and just thought it was a nice first attempt. I would still like a better bookmarking features and some other things, but it’s a cool way to kill some time. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments.
