StumbleUpon has released v2.0 of their Android app, bringing with it a slew of improvements and even adding Android Tablet support into the mix. For those unfamiliar with StumbleUpon, it is a discovery engine that helps users discover interesting content from around the web based on their interests along with the recommendations of friends or other users who share similar interests.
This newest version features a revamped interface for a much cleaner and visually appealing look. Not only have they improved the look but they have also improved how pages load, making “stumbling” faster and even more fun. Another method of “stumbling” has been added in this version. Aside from using the “Stumble!” button, users now have the ability to swipe left or right to “stumble,” making it even easier to explore new content. You’ll also find the new “Explore Box” which was introduced into the web version back in August. Now available on the mobile app, the “Explore Box” allows users to “stumble” through thousands of interests simply by typing a word or phrase. Check out a video of the “Explore Box” below for an idea of how it works:
All of the improvements you see in version 2.0 have also been extended into an Android app compatible with tablets. Android tablets running Honeycomb can now share in the experience of “stumbling” upon new content, allowing for a truly mobile-rich experience.
