Random – the app that finds you cool new stuff to enjoy [Freeware]

The internet is a vast landscape filled with all sorts of information and time wasters. The problem is, most people only go to the same handful of sources and miss out on all the wonder that the internet has to offer. Random is the app hoping to change that.

This iOS only app is like a more expansive version of Stumbleupon, the service that alerts you to the best of topic specific content. With Stumbleupon, you tell it your interests and it spits back sites that fit that keyword. Random on the other hand makes connections between your interests and related topics, and then serves up all new fresh sites for your browsing enjoyment.

It works much the same way as the music web, taking an idea you like and matching it with other topics that are similar, thereby expanding your web browsing and knowledge base in increments. Also, it boasts that it won’t serve up the same content twice, which is something Stumbleupon fails at. Introduce yourself to a while new internet, one story at a time. Random is free through the App store.
