If you are familiar with blogs, user generated content and different Internet communities, you probably already know everything there is to know about StumbleUpon. ‘Stumble On the Go’ is now available for Android and it will allow its users to discover and rate random Web pages, photos, and videos. StumbleUpon is a personalized recommendation engine which uses peer and social-networking principles. It is worth nothing that StumbleUpon for Android is available for 2.1 and 2.2 OS system versions, which does leave out a chunk of the Android market.

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.

Some of the most useful mobile features include the ability to change your settings depending on whether you are on WiFi or in an area where your network coverage is slow. You can go to the application settings and adjust your stumbling mode. Now you can stumble through thumbnails of web sites which will help speed things up and when you’re back in a faster area or on WiFI, you can change your settings back at any time. New features are already announced so we look forward to seeing those. Check out the official announcement for more information.
