I originally found this app as an alternative when the actual tumblr app updated itself & then crashed every 5 minutes. it's a great app & is definitely worth the price (especially) if you're a tumblr junkie like myself. one of the best features (in my opinion) the app has to offer is you can create multiple groups of your favorite blogs & then view them all together as one huge never-ending archive & queue/post away.
no, the app isn't flawless (it doesn't seem to show text posts) but it is reliable! something the regular tumblr app seems to have a problem with (:

Used to work great... not any more and no support


I've been using this app for a long time and I've always loved it. But now I can no longer reblog or like anything and my email pleas for help have gone unanswered. With the app not working and no response from tech support, what else can I do but write this review? Looking at other reviews, it looks like I'm not the only one. There are other problems too, you can bookmark other blogs, but there is no way to delete bookmarks you no longer want. Even blogs that no longer exist have to stay in your bookmarks. With so many issues, I'd have to recommend looking elsewhere for a good Tumblr app.


More features have quit working and now I notice the last time this app was updated was June 2015, so the developer has obviously abandoned the app. It's too bad, it used to be a great app.

Good, needs optimization.


I run my blog from a queue and if I had to go through the settings for every post and hit "queue post" in the actual tumblr app one more time my head was going to explode. Very happy that queueing a post is so much easier in this app. HOWEVER, this app has not been updated in AGES and needs some optimization and quality-of-life changes. I'm not sure if the developer has just been holding off on releasing something because the next version is going to be godly, or if they just dropped off the face of the planet and aren't going to be updating anymore. I really hope they come back to make some much needed changes to this app.
