StumbleUpon - the best site and app ever

 StumbleUpon is becoming the most useful ‘share link’ site around. The element of randomness that is built into both the website and app, by finding pages by chance, can be the inspiration that fuels a new idea. I can’t recommend it highly enough – excellent.

The StumbleUpon app for the iPhone and iPad is a simple idea and an extension of the StumbleUpon.com website. This app is a great little mobile tool for helping with optimization of websites and tracking popular pages. You can see in an instant what your favorite ‘stumble’ is doing by click counting and watching trends. Your mobile account is automatically synced with your web account so you can browse your Likes anytime on either platform, enabling you to share your interesting finds with anyone via email, StumbleUpon, Facebook, Twitter and others. This is a very useful addition to my app collection and it works perfectly side by side with my WordPress app.

The home screen is simple, visual and easy to use and like the website the new look is graphic driven, contemporary, intelligent and intuitive in navigation.

You can follow Channels (sites, people and brands) and Stumble a Channel’s Likes. If you type a word or phrase in the Explore Box, or pick from 500+ Interests, the app will recommend a page and probably deliver you something on a subject you’d never expect to see or would normally seek out.
