Yesterday we reported that blog commenting system Disqus joined the iPhone and Android fray, now we’re happy to announce that another popular social sharing system among blogs, StumbleUpon, has also released an iPhone App, while Google Android users also have an app for that.
StumbleUpon allows users to submit interesting, fun and creative articles to the site, at which point those sites can be “Stumbled” by users as they are taken around the web by the companies automatic site stumbling application. The more stumbles a site gets, the more visitors they begin to receive.
According to the company, their 11 million members will see the “best for mobile stumbling” web posts, which includes photos, YouTube videos and news among other posts. The application has also been optimized for mobile screens and serves pages with optimized connection capabilities.
StumbleUpon users will also see their “favorites” section and “recommendations” just as they do on the web based application.
Users should be familiar with the mobile apps buttons such as the “Start Stumbling” button, “thumbs up” and “thumbs down” buttons, likes, reviews and sharing options.
What the program fails to address right now is the ability to add content from the users mobile browser, which means your iPhone Safari browsers has yet to provide stumble buttons from the application. Some Android formatting issues have also been discovered, but we expect them to be fixed soon.
Here’s a look at the iPhone version of the app:
If you’ve had a chance to look at the application, let us know what your first thoughts are about the program.
