StumbleUpon Updates Android App, Adds Google+ Integration


StumbleUpon Android App with Google Plus Integration

StumbleUpon continues to provide one of the best web traffic portals on the web and while the company over the last year confused some users by adding muddled forums and other hard to understand features they seem to be getting back on track with the roll out of a new Google Android app update.

One of the coolest new features might be the apps use of NFC-enabled devices. Using NFC users can share their content finds with anyone close enough to grab their NFC signal. Simply turn on StumbleUpon on both devices and you can browse each others favorites and shared links.

Users will also find an action bar at the bottom of the application that matches the Android interface while users can use a resizable widget for the homepage so they can preview StumbleUpon content without leaving the home screen.

The biggest new feature however might to the mobile apps integration with Google+ which allows users to sign into StumbleUpon Mobile via Google. Since Google Android users likes the ability to sign into all of their web based apps through their Google account this means a more “connected” experience for Google Android phone users.

Do you think the new Google Android StumbleUpon features make the mobile app more user friendly and enjoyable?
