Some of the best mobile apps are the ones that don’t make you have to work for the content, they just deliver random goodness to your phone for hours of enjoyment. If you’ve ever found yourself in a waiting room and you’ve answered all your texts and emails (or are just avoiding them) and don’t feel like playing Angry Birds again, if you’re like me you often find yourself flicking back and forth between apps, bored and waiting for something to happen. Sort of like when you keep opening the fridge expecting some new and delicious meal to be there that you may have missed the last time you checked.
StumbleUpon has been around online for years and has a fairly large following of active users that keep it fresh with content. If you’re not familiar with StumbleUpon you can read more about them here:
StumbleUpon helps you discover and share great websites. As you click Stumble!, we deliver high-quality pages matched to your personal preferences. These pages have been explicitly recommended by your friends or one of 8 million+ other websurfers with interests similar to you. Rating these sites you like () automatically shares them with like-minded people – and helps you discover great sites your friends recommend.
While this is a really cool concept for surfing the web, it’s an absolute awesome concept for surfing the web on your mobile phone while you’re trying to pass the time. Now, not only can you pass the time you can discover great new sites, photos and more while you’re at it.
The iPhone and Android app versions of StumbleUpon have been out for a few months now and if you haven’t checked them out they’re definitely worth a look, especially that they’re both free.
