More than 25 million users leverage StumbleUpon to discover great content across the web. Today they’ll be able to discover more content quicker than ever thanks to new iPhone and iPad apps. Not only are the apps easier to use with navigation and design upgrades, but they also contain new features like StumbleDNA and slide previews.
One of the changes that will excite avid Stumble users the most will the the all new “slide” preview. Instead of reviewing each and every full page of content, the new preview will load quickly while the main content loads in the background. If the content preview doesn’t look appealing users can simply swipe past it to get to the next piece of content.
This makes perfect sense for mobile devices as it will not only use less data, but also let users vet content quicker than ever.
With the release of the new apps comes the debut of StumbleDNA. This is a color bar that will appear for all users based off of user interests. Content from different interests will appear in varying colors to provide users with a unique visual representation of their personality.
These colors can be seen on all stories to help users quickly identify what type of content has been recommended for them. The overall color bar that results from usage is what makes up each person’s unique StumbleDNA. This will also help users quickly find other like-minded folks to follow.
The new StumbleUpon iOS homescreen gives users a variety of content options to explore. Users can now choose what content they’d like to view. From friend recommendations to traditional Stumble recommendations, to specific interests – users can choose their own experience. New to the screen is trending content that delivers the top stories & content of across all of StumbleUpon.
Stumbling an interest is also quite easy from the home, and uses the StumbleDNA color methodology to do so.
The iOS app is available for free in the App Store. For more information see the video below:
