Spencer’s Fun App of the Week

This week’s app of the week is a must for the tech procrastinator.  Many of you are probably familiar with StumbleUpon on your desktop.  If you are not then here is a small explanation.  You press the “stumble” button and you are taken to a random website based on your preferences.  Well StumbleUpon also has their own IPAD and Iphone app as well.  This app pretty much does the same things that the internet browser does with only a few slight differences.  One thing that I noticed and happened to like is the ability for the app to request more than one page at once.  From here you can choose from a selection of random sites instead of automatically being taken to one.

However, this app does have several shortcomings when compared to its browser version.  First off is its lack of videos.  Unfortunately, Apple still does not have FlashPlayer, so when stumbling you rarely stumble upon any videos.  Another issue I found is that fact that you actually have to leave the app in order to save images or copy links.  What I mean by this is that you have to press a button that then loads the current page you have stumbled upon on the Safari browser.  Only here can links be copied and pictures can be saved.  One of the biggest issues I have is that when you exit the app you lose the site you are at.  The app automatically restarts once you have left the app.  For these reasons, I give the StumbleUpon app a 3.5 out of 5 stars because it does have some major shortcomings, but never the less, you ill still be as addicted to it as you are to the regular browser version.
