The official StumbleUpon App for iPhone and Android phones is here!

You’ve asked and we’re thrilled to deliver! For as long as we can remember, StumbleUpon users have been asking us to bring the stumbling experience to iPhones and Android* phones. Our engineers have been working hard to build an app with a simple yet functional interface and the same addictive and personalized stumbling experience you’re used to on your computer. We’ve been testing the app for weeks and can’t put down our phones – it’s THAT fun! Beta tester and longtime Stumbler Serina loves it too: “I was surprised the Android app for StumbleUpon had so many features! I can now receive shares from friends and reply to them on the go! I can discover new content while waiting in line at the grocery store! I am thrilled to be able to take SU with me everywhere I go!”

Think about all those times when you’re riding the bus, sitting at the airport gate, or waiting for friends, playing with the same mobile apps again and again. Now you can have the perfect boredom-buster: with StumbleUpon for the iPhone and Android, the best of the web is, literally, at your fingertips.

Download the free app and log in with your StumbleUpon username and password. All of your StumbleUpon preferences will automatically load on your phone, so go forth and stumble! You can stumble all topics at once, just like on your computer, or stumble in a particular topic. We’ve also made it easy to stumble in some of the most mobile-friendly channels we have: Photos, News, Flickr and YouTube. In addition, you can share your favorite sites directly to other Stumblers and via Facebook, Twitter or email.

We realize you may find yourself stumbling in areas where your network connection is slow. Not to worry – just go to the app’s settings menu  and change your stumbling mode. This will enable you to stumble through thumbnails of web sites, making your discovery experience faster. You can change your settings back at any time.

Stay tuned for future updates to this app coming soon, like the ability to see the number of shares you have waiting right beside your text message and email notifications, the ability to find new Stumblers to follow, and more! (And for those of you using a web-enabled mobile device other than an iPhone or an Android phone, we’re investigating StumbleUpon app possibilities for other mobile operating systems. We’ll update our blog with any developments on that front!)
