StumbleUpon: Updated iPad App is a Must Have [Review]
By on July 12th, 2011

Many internet users love to discover new content. One of the best ways to do that is through StumbleUpon. The issue is that many users are beginning to use their tablets and smart phones more than their computers, and StumbleUpon didn’t always have the best presence in the mobile space. It seems as though that changes today.

StumbleUpon has released an updated version of their iOS, specifically their iPad app. As I see it, this is now a must have app for the iPad. Since I got my iPad back in March, I have wanted something just like StumbleUpon. I use my iPad as a couch computer for browsing the internet and playing games. StumbleUpon helps me discover content I may not have found otherwise.

You are probably asking yourself why I didn’t use Stumble on my laptop then. I think that the screenshot above provides your answer. My laptop’s desktop is really cluttered. When I am on my laptop, I am working, chatting in TWiT’s IRC channel, reading news items, talking on Steam, and browsing the web.

The StumbleUpon iPad app is pretty, and it keeps my attention. When I sit down and use the StumbleUpon app, its all I do. I get he best experience I have ever gotten out of StumbleUpon, and all it took was the iPad. Who would have thought.

One of the big features of this redesign is the social integration inside the app. The “social bar” shows you if users you follow on Stumble have liked a page. If not, you will get a suggestion as to who to follow on Stumble.

As I said, I feel like this app is a must have for all iPad owners. I don’t use those words very often. I think the social integration is amazing, the interface is amazing, and I love it. I whole hearted recommend you go out and get it.
