Ever wished you could more efficiently sink into the wormhole of really cool stuff on the Internet? After you take thirty seconds to customize your interests, the StumbleUpon app will begin offering up the best of the web, filtering its userbase's expert opinion through your specific preferences.
You tell StumbleUpon what you want to see most - are you a lover of animals, travel, Facebook, nutrition, alcoholic drinks? - and then immediately begin stumbling. A screenshot preview of a site matching one of your interests will help you decide whether it merits your attention or not. Once you find one that catches your fancy, open it and explore to your heart's content.
The really exceptional feature of StumbleUpon is that it learns as you use it. Tell the app thumbs-up or thumbs-down as you browse, and it will begin to offer you more tailor-made stumbling, based on constantly updated analysis of the behavior of its userbase. That means more and more concentrated results that will specifically interest you, providing practically limitless entertainment.
The design here is attractive, colorful, and intuitive. There are no ads, and everything runs as smoothly as it should.
The features allowing you to make your own lists and follow other users are intriguing if you want to use the app as a social media platform, but the principal draw here is the personalized stumbling. Installing the StumbleUpon app is dangerous if you have a long to-do list in real life, yet wholly excellent if you get your kicks finding hidden corners of the interent.
