Tap That App: Explore with StumbleUpon

2:05 /

Updated for Android and iOS, use the power of collective opinion to help you discover awesome websites that you otherwise wouldn't have stumbled upon.

Hey folks, I�m Jaymar Cabebe, and welcome to Tap That App�the show where we tap the hottest synchronized swimming prospects for the London 2012 Olympics. Wait wha-?[[BEEP!]]Apps. Today we are tapping one of my favorite apps. It�s called StumbleUpon, and it recently got a refresh for both the Android and iOS platforms. Now, if you�ve never heard of StumbleUpon, it is a tool for discovering cool websites. Using the collective opinions of all its users, it recommends sites that you otherwise wouldn�t have found using, say, a search engine. It is very awesome. First thing to do after downloading the app is make sure you have an account set up. You can do that at StumbleUpon.com. Next, go in the app and tell StumbleUpon what you�re interested in. There are tons of Interests to choose from, and you can always add to or edit your choices, so don�t worry too much right off the bat. Then, once you�ve saved your interests, go ahead and Start Stumbling. As you can see at the top of the screen, you can share recommendations, and you can rate each with either a thumbs-up or thumbs-down. And whichever you choose, you�ll be helping StumbleUpon to serve up smarter recommendations the next time. If you�re on the fence about something, you can just Stumble again and move on. You can also just swipe left, which is really nice. Or swipe right to go back. Now, if you�re looking for a specific kind of recommendation, the StumbleUpon app offers some great filtering options as well. You can Stumble through specific Interests, photos only, videos only, News, or even Friends� favorites. There�s also a beta feature that recommends Apps based on what�s already installed on your device. As you can see, StumbleUpon is pretty full-featured, folks. And since it�s free for both Android and iOS, we definitely think it�s an app worth tapping. That�ll do it for this week. If you have an app or a synchronized swimmer that you think we should tap, holler at me on the Twitter. Thanks for watching.
