Updated navigation and easy-to-use design: Navigation within the app has been redesigned so users can spend more time discovering and sharing great stuff from across the Web.

Faster Stumbling with 'Slide' preview: With every Stumble, users will now see a small preview -- a "Slide" -- of the page being recommended as it loads in the background. Swiping through Slides allows for quick browsing of recommended content.
