Despite having so many social bookmarking and exploration services, one of the world’s favorite tools in this category has to be StumbleUpon. Today the company has launched it’s brand new social discovery apps for the iPhone and iPad, making it more effective for users who want to access and discover amazing stuff on the internet on the go.
The company has completely redesigned our StumbleUpon App for iPhone and iPad. It is now more intuitive and more about you so you can discover great images, videos, games, recipes and more however you want, wherever you want.
(Even More) Personalized Stumbling
StumbleUpon has always personalized content for each individual Stumbler, and now they aree lifting up the hood to visually show what your personal preferences are in a rainbow stripe we call “StumbleDNA.” Your StumbleDNA is a visual representation of who you are on StumbleUpon, with colors representing different Interests that you follow. As you Like and Dislike things, your unique StumbleDNA changes to represent you and your evolving tastes. Check out other Stumblers’ StumbleDNA to discover what you might have in common.
Each Stumbler’s StumbleDNA is unique to them and their Interests.
Navigation within the app has been reimagined so you can spend more time discovering and sharing great stuff from across the Web. Stumble, rate and share all in a few seconds from the top and bottom toolbars that automatically recede to provide a full screen viewing experience. Access your Profile and Likes with one tap on your device screen.
Left: The app navigation is easily accessible from top and bottom toolbars.
Right: As you Stumble, swipe through “Slides” to quickly browse new content.
A Richer, Easier Experience with Slide
With every Stumble you’ll see a small preview –a “Slide”– of the page being recommended as it loads in the background. Swipe through different Slides to quickly browse content recommended for you.
Dynamic Home Screen
Check out what’s trending, what your connections and Interest experts recommend and other great content suggested just for you, all right from the app home screen. You’ll be amused and delighted (and maybe even surprised!) by what other people are Stumbling.
The dynamic home screen is constantly changing and refreshed with new content for you.
We think with the apps it is now an easier-to-use, more dynamic and more personalized StumbleUpon experience on mobile. You can download the new StumbleUpon App for iPhone and iPad now to experience it for yourself. And if you aren’t using an iPhone or iPad, don’t despair – the new StumbleUpon App for Android will be released later this Fall!
