Stamped, the app that lets you “put your stamp of approval on the world,” has been upgraded to version 2.0.
With Stamped, you can stamp — and thereby recommend — restaurants, books, songs, movies, TV shows, and even apps.
Today, Stamped has been updated with a major overhaul. “We’ve redesigned, rebuilt, and reimagined every single screen of Stamped,” says Stamped, Inc. “It’s now the easiest and most useful way to record, share, and discover all your favorite things.”
Stamped 2.0 preserves the well-received minimalist elegance of the app. But it does introduce a number of significant features and interface touches.
One of the highlights of the update is The Guide, a section that lets you easily discover the best of your friends’ stamps.
As opposed to the reverse-chronological approach of the old version’s main feed, The Guide allows you to dig into stamps by activity. It suggests Eat/Drink for restaurants, Read for books, Listen for songs, Watch for movies and TV shows, and Download for apps.
Still in keeping with the “stampable” things it supports, Stamped now lets you act on stamps accordingly. Essentially, this means that you can take advantage of the app’s integrations with Opentable for restaurants, Amazon for books, Rdio for songs, Netflix and Fandango for movies and TV shows, and, of course, iTunes for apps.
Moreover, Stamped now lets you keep track of what’s happening all around the Stamped community. It also lets you see whether your friends have liked any of your stamps so much as to include it in their social to-do lists.

And then there’s the new Tastemakers section. Accessible via the app’s new feed slider, this section invites you to explore stamps from popular tastemakers.
Among the tastemakers featured in the app are such big names as Justin Bieber, Ellen DeGeneres, and Ryan Seacrest. It’s worth noting that these three celebrities, along with The New York Times and other backers, have all invested in Stamped. The Biebs, in particular, has extended his support by starring in Stamped’s new promotional video, which you can watch above.
If only I could stamp Stamped… Oh, as it turns out, I could.
