How do I download the StumbleUpon app for my iPhone, iPod or iPad?
To download the StumbleUpon App for iPhone or iPad, follow one of the three methods described below:

- On your device, open the App Store app, search for StumbleUpon in the search bar, and tap Install
- On your device, open your Internet browser and visit www.stumbleupon.com and tap the link to the App Store
- On your desktop computer or device browser go to our mobile page to email yourself a link to download the app

 

How do I create an account on the app?

You will need a StumbleUpon account in order to use the StumbleUpon App. From the app start page tap "Sign Up". You can create an account three ways:

 

1. Create an account via our own sign-up form 
This option allows you to specify what email, username and password you want for your new account. Use this option if you don’t
have a Facebook or Google account or if you want to keep your StumbleUpon account separate from your other accounts.


2. Create an account via Facebook
Tap the “Join with Facebook” button. We recommend using this option if you’re already logged in to your Facebook account on your iPad. This option makes the sign-up process faster, as it uses your Facebook data to automatically create an account (including username and password) for you. You will receive an email with your account information that you can use to login in addition to being able to sign in through Facebook.
 

3. Create an account via Google 

Tap the “Join with Google” button and enter your Google account information.

How do I find and follow people I know on StumbleUpon?

Following other stumblers adds their Likes to web pages you see in your Stumble stream. When you follow a person, you are telling our recommendation engine that you like the kind of web pages that person has Liked.

You can find people you know who are also on StumbleUpon by email (this option requires that the email client on your device is already configured), Facebook or Twitter. On your device visit your Profile screen and tap "Following" to see Stumblers you are Following or "Followers" to see Stumblers that are Following you. On either page you can tap  “Find Connections” to find other Stumblers using your device's address book.

Alternatively, you can also start following a Stumbler by visiting their profile and turning the “Following” slider to “ON.”

 

 

Can I message another Stumbler?

No, you can not send messages to another Stumbler through the app. The easiest way to communicate with another Stumbler is by typing a note when you’re sharing a web page with that person. You and the other Stumbler must both be following each other first.

 

How do I report bad, spam and duplicate content?

While we do our best to ensure that we’re showing you only the best web pages, once in a while you may Stumble a page with poor quality content. You can help keep our Stumble quality high by reporting these web pages to us.

Reporting from the app is easy:

1) Tap the menu button at the bottom right on any web page you want to report.
2) Select "Report An Issue"
3) Select the appropriate description for the bad Stumble:

- “Report Spam” = the web page is spammy, asks you to sign up for something or has a lot of banner ads and no content at all.
- “Seen Page Already” = you’ve Stumbled this before. This option is useful especially when viral copyrighted content (photos or videos) are embedded in web pages for the purpose of getting a lot of traffic.
- “Does Not Load” = the web page doesn’t load or sends you to a 404 page.

Read our help article “Report a Bad Web Page” to learn more about reporting web pages in StumbleUpon.
