Tumblr is a place to express yourself, discover yourself, and bond over the stuff you love. Whether it’s fandoms or philosophy, fashion or felines, Tumblr is where your interests connect you with your people.

— Post photos, GIFs, text, videos, live videos, audio, anything.
— Make your own GIFs. Cover them in stickers and text, if you like.

— Look however you want. Customize your Tumblr’s colors, fonts, layout, everything.
— Follow whatever topics you’re interested in. Find new ones you didn’t even know existed.

— Join millions of people in millions of communities across millions of #tags.
— See something you love? Reblog it to your Tumblr and start a conversation.
— Start a private conversation with your friends in messaging.
— Or just follow, if you’re feeling shy. No big deal.

App of the freedom

I have been a Tumblr user for 6 years now and I use all other kinds of social media, so I can definitely state, hands down, that this is the best existing social media platform of our generation that allows you not only to fully express yourself and your art however you want but also keeps you up to the latest trends in fashion, culture, news, activism etc. Not only that, but with the years it has become a communal place where people from different parts of the world can contribute to create a group discussion under a post which is what the app is mainly known for. I just love everything about it and one of my favourite parts is the fact that everything is super casual and friendly, every text and title written by the administrators is not like serious and “professional” but written in a way that is not only funny and friendly but weirdly sarcastic which makes it so unique. I admire everything about the app and in my opinion it is all social medias combined into one. Definitely HIGHLY RECOMMEND for whoever still hasn’t got it and has been living in a cave so far. Betta get it gal! C ya there x

I love tumblr, but.....

Okay, so I’ve been using tumblr for over a year now and have a pretty popular blog and up until now I’ve noticed hardly any problems with the app.

First of all, recently I haven’t been able to receive any of my notifications or messages unless I haven’t opened the app. However, once I do open it the notifications basically vanish. Also, it repeatedly crashes once I open it and it takes around 5 tries for the app to finally work without crashing. And finally, even the website seems to be having problems as I’m not able to scroll down my timeline or edit my blog without the browser completely refreshing itself every time someone posts something new!

I wouldn’t expect this for a major app like Tumblr, especially with the millions of people using it everyday and I’m sure a few of them experience the same problems. Please fix this as soon as possible as revert back to the old Tumblr, the new update is horrible.


Barely Functioning

I never really get that frustrated at buggy apps let alone left a review over it, but this is getting crazy for such a large company.

The app is falling apart around you as you use it; the notifications don’t refresh and the loading icon just stays spinning, the menu text is jumping about the place, images refuse to load unless you turn your WiFi on and off and wait a few minutes, the wrong icons are displayed beside blogs, posts sometimes just vanish when you make them, app message number notifications switch between being stuck even if you read the message or don’t display at all, messages often send twice in a row or not at all, videos just don’t play half the time, or sometimes an image just blows up over the entire screen and freezes like that, and that’s all along with the app just freezing or crashing constantly

I realised how bad it’s got when I had gotten used to closing down the app and opening it again and turning the WiFi on and off as I use it constantly just to get it to somewhat function
