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.

Don't you just love an app that repeatedly crashes before it can even open itself, resulting in me having to redownload it every time I want to use it. I would tell you if other aspects of this update were good or not, but I guess I'll never know..
As of 6th July this is still happening multiple times a day... how many updates do you have to do until you actually tackle this problem... the one everyone is actually asking you to... instead of just fiddling with aesthetics..or making absolutely everything nsfw and unviewable by many (really shot yourselves in the foot with that one didn't you and yet you still won't fix it).This is quickly becoming one of the worst apps I've ever used. Does anyone actually test the app out for more than five minutes after you've developed it? Because if you did maybe you'd know about the countless problems you've created. Get it together tumblr, or you've not got long left...
Aug 21st - bugs fixed? I literally cannot open the app, this is even worse than before when I couldn't get it to stay open, I literally cannot use the app, it's impossible, you should all be fired.
Nov 21st - app has been freezing then crashing about 30 seconds after I open the app EVERY SINGLE TIME.
....OOOOK next problem. I’m writing this 31st March 2018 and for at least a month now whenever an audio file finishes playing in this app the page will automatically zoom back to the top. Incredibly irritating. Please fix this. And soon not whenever you feel like it..

App of the freedom

Robert de Lion

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.
