CNET Editors' review
The ever-popular and unique Web recommendation engine StumbleUpon has made its way onto the Android platform by way of a native app. And from what we've seen so far, it looks fantastic.
With the StumbleUpon app, there are two ways to pull up recommended sites, news, pictures, and videos. You can tap the Stumble button or simply swipe to the left. Either way, the sleek interface makes for some incredibly fluid stumbling. You can also rate each recommendation with a thumbs-up or thumbs-down, filter your recommendations according to your interests, and share any of your recommendations on Read It Later, Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and so on.
But that's not all. Unique to the StumbleUpon mobile app is the ability to pull up app recommendations as well. The feature is still in beta, but it can dole out some relevant recommendations based on what's already installed on your mobile device. Also, there's the brand-new Explore box, which lets you stumble upon recommendations related to a specific topic.
Overall, we love the StumbleUpon mobile app. Just like its full desktop counterpart, it offers a unique and fun way to discover sites, news, photos, videos, and other content. It also lets you connect with other users with similar interests. Meanwhile, it offers an addictive and fluid experience thanks to the swipe-to-stumble feature. Whether you're a seasoned StumbleUpon user or you're simply looking for something new to play with, we highly recommend this download.
