Explore the web with Stumble Upon!
The internet is full of amazing and some bizarre things waiting to be dug out, and ofcourse most of us don’t have the time to see everything out there. Stumble Upon is a one of a kind application that does just what it says. You can use it to Stumble upon interesting facts and stories around the web based on your interests! Its as simple as that.
The idea is that all of the application’s users or Stumblers, see stuff across the web, +1 the ones they like and -1 the ones they don’t. You can use the app then to find the most read stories relating to a certain topic, be it technology, cars, fashion or even Android applications!
The app is free on the Android market, all you need to do is download, install and use the convenient Facebook log in option. You’ll have to choose a few interests to start with as the results are specific to what you like. Once that’s done, start stumbling!
The app has an exceedingly simple interface, you have two buttons to like or dislike a post, the Stumble button to find something interesting across the web and a share button to share the story via an assortment of social tools such as Facebook or Twitter.
The interface is excellent no doubt, but the best bit is the quality of the posts you come across on Stumble Upon. I’ve used the application quite a bit uptil now and its awesome. You can come across stuff like 25 of the best HDR wallpapers, 10 of the most weird things you’ll ever see, pictures of notable cars (since I chose cars as an interest and much more.
It’s a great time killer for when you are waiting for something or someone and pass the time with stumbling across the web, at home or on the move, if you’re a curious type, this app will wow you. There are some lame results of course, I came across a ridiculous post regarding charging your laptop with its own USB port! But mostly the app works as it should. The interface is clean and you have plenty of sharing options, developers realize how everyone has an urge to use to share even the smallest of things, nonetheless it’s a useful feature to have.
Overall I’d say it’s a great app, its useful and interesting, its free, and its definitely unique, you’ll be hard pressed to find something like this in another application. Recommended for everyone out there with a bit of free time on their hands. And do let us know what you think of it as always.
