StumbleUpon Users Now Have the Freedom to Stumble From Multiple Mobile Platforms
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- StumbleUpon, a discovery engine, today announced the debut of its free application for iPhone and Android-powered mobile devices, allowing users to discover and share cool content from the Web using their mobile phones.
"Following the success of our iPad app, we're excited to extend the stumbling experience to iPhone and Android device users, letting people explore the best of the web at any time no matter where they are," said Garrett Camp, founder and CEO. "Downloading the app is easy and once logged-in, users can discover great online content that's tailored to their preferences."
The new StumbleUpon app is optimized for the mobile discovery experience and uses the same personalized recommendation technology users would encounter using their personal computer or iPad. Through their mobile phone, users can 'thumb-up' or 'thumb-down' sites they like or dislike, and preferences are saved for their next session when they open the app.
Users can narrow their stumbling to a particular category, such as Photography or Science, or browse through pages in no particular category. They can also view content on best-in-breed content sites, flipping through lush photography on Flickr or funny videos on YouTube.
StumbleUpon is a discovery engine that finds the best of the web, recommended for each user. With over 15 billion stumbles to date, over 10 million users and 600 million personalized recommendations per month, StumbleUpon is the leading way to discover great, peer-sourced content on the Internet. Over 50,000 unique URLs are indexed through StumbleUpon each day. More than 40,000 advertisers are using StumbleUpon to promote their products and services. Founded in 2001, StumbleUpon is based in San Francisco and backed by some of the same investors behind Google and Facebook. For more information, visit www.StumbleUpon.com.
