The official app for viewing favorite blogs from your phone
Tumblr is a quirky and fun social blogging and sharing community that lets you post, find, and connect with others that love the same things you do!
Tumblr allows you to create an unlimited amount of “tumblogs”, or blogs, around any subject you can imagine. It offers all the standard features of uploading text, video, pictures, and even music – but it’s the community that really sets it apart.
Follow people from your address book, send direct messages and live chats, as well as receive notifications when people you follow post updates, gain new followers, or receive new comments on your own tumblogs.
While Tumblr offers a lot of fun and functionality for most, there have been reported issues that should be considered of before installing; scrolling through content can be slow, the application has been known to stop suddenly, and it can be a bit heavy handed on local storage, as well.
Aside from some minor issues, the Tumblr app offers a full and rich experience along with a few perks over its browser app.
- Create GIFs on the Fly! One of the best features of the app is the ability to create GIFs from videos and pictures.
- Get Started in a Few Clicks Click a few topics that you’re interested in and have a custom experience in seconds.
- Share and Discover New Favorites Memes, comics, videos, thoughtful discussions, and more can be found through the app.
- Video Playback Issues Many users have reported issues with video playback in the app (i.e. being unable to stop playback once it starts).
- Storage-Hungry This app is notorious for being storage-hungry; media (video, pictures, music) is downloaded locally so it’s important to clear your cache as often as possible
Thanks for choosing Tumblr, a place to connect with others over shared interests.
Dashboard bug fixes and performance improvements are a healthy and natural part of life.
