StumbleUpon’s first attempt at an iPad app missed the mark by some way admit StumbleUpon, but today the company has unveiled their newly rebuilt iPad application which has been designed to provide a much more enjoyable Stumbling experience on Apple’s tablet device.
The new StumbleUpon application has been rebuilt from the ground-up with a new interface design and redesigned layout taking inspiration from the well known and excellent Flipboard iPad application.
Founder Garrett Camp explains :
“We decided we were going to re-do it from the ground up. We re-did the interface. It’s much better than before. It’s almost like a black version of Flipboard,”
The iPad StumbleUpon app now includes features like ‘Swipe to Stumble’ and the ability to flick through content, together with contenting being pre-loaded in the background allowing you to Stumble without the need to wait for the application to download data for your next Stumble destination.
Camp also states that the mobile usage of StumbleUpon is soaring and is currently growing by 35 percent month to month, when compared with 20 percent overall.
