Yet another failed attempt to fix something not broken
StumbleUpon was a great app that was simple and to the point. You pick categories, you press a button, you read an article that was it. Mix has somehow found a way to complicate this process. From the non descriptive category list to the multiple clicks needed to read an article it is a poor replacement for what was a great platform in StumbleUpon. From what I can see there is no way to view a list of all available categories which is frustrating because all they provide is what is suggested to you based on what your initial category selection was at the time of sign up. This means no discovering new topics or branching out into different interest from time to time. This app focuses to much on the social media aspect and in my opinion caters only to people who are avid social media users. For some like myself, the ease of use and privacy of StumbleUpon as well as its content driven nature were its biggest draws. All I want to do is find interesting things to read when using the app and Mix has taken that simple process away. Very disappointed to see StumbleUpon go and will be deleting Mix immediately. Shame on whoever thought this change would be a good idea, as this is a perfect example of when change is not for the better.
Please bring back StumbleUpon
I’ve never reviewed an app before but I feel strongly enough about this one to write a review. The interface, navigation and user experience of SU are effective, simple and make you want to keep browsing for hours. Interests and categories were easy to find and made sense. On Mix for example why do my interests have US Congress and White House? I certainly didn’t select them on SU, maybe the category was politics? Why are history and in olden days two separate categories? This is quite frustrating. Also i haven’t found very interesting content on Mix plus I hate having to click to go to a different page to view content - SU had it on the same page and it didn’t require multiple clicks - maybe it’s the reason I haven’t stayed long enough to find interesting content on Mix that may actually be there.
This is nothing like StumbleUpon
I really enjoyed StumbleUpon and was excited to see they were going to do a new app. Unfortunately I was disappointed.
I do not like this at all. The user interface is clunky and hard to navigate I can’t figure out how to get categories that I like. Actually I can’t really find anything of interest.
It seems the only choices for categories are the generic ones that are offered. The whole point of stumble upon(for me anyway) was that I could just skim through a bunch of different websites and discover things that I may not have otherwise discovered, or I could stumble through any one of my, often off-the-wall, interests. With Mix The interests are too generic. No thought was given to The fact that stumble upon felt limitless. There was no telling what you were going to come across.
