This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Tumblr is a place to discover and post about stuff you love, and join communities of people who love that same stuff. It’s pretty neat.
Q: What can I post on Tumblr?
A: Photos, videos, live videos, songs, text—pretty much anything.
Q: Can I make gifs?
A: Yes, you CAN make gifs! You can make them out of videos, bursts, live photos, or just shoot them on the spot.
Q: What’s the deal with “reblogging”?
A: It’s a way to take the stuff you find on Tumblr and make it your own. You can repost other people’s posts to your own blog. You can add commentary if you like. Other people can do the same with your posts. That’s how ideas spread on Tumblr, and it’s how communities form around them.
Q: Who’s on Tumblr?
A: People who are posting and reblogging about interesting stuff that you’re interested in. Politics. Movies. Memes and such. If you’ve ever seen anything interesting on the internet, chances are it came from Tumblr.
Q: How do I talk to people on Tumblr?
A: A few different ways. You can comment on a post, or you can reblog a post to your own Tumblr and add commentary, or you can send a private message. Whatever suits the occasion.
Q: How do I find stuff to follow?
A: Search for whatever you’re interested in. We’ll show you great posts about that stuff, and get you following the people who make those posts. Oh, you can also follow a search itself, and we’ll put sift the best material from that search right into your dashboard.
Q: What kind of stuff are people talking about on Tumblr *right now*?
A: Whatever’s happening in the world. The real world, the world of fiction, the world of pop culture, the world of academics, the world of safety and justice, the world of sports. Whatever world you live in, you’ll find it among all the trending topics in the search tab.
Q: Do all Tumblrs look the same?
A: No! You can totally customize your Tumblr’s appearance, right down to the colors and fonts you use.
Q: How will people find my Tumblr?
A: Tag your posts. Tumblr is full of passionate communities of people who are constantly searching through tags for new posts about stuff they love. Your stuff could be that stuff.
Q: Am I ready to download Tumblr, deepen my perspective, and forever change the way I think?
What's New in Version 9.4.1
We’ve done it. This version is the perfect app. All future changes will be hubris moving us further from the ideal.
Far from the “perfect app”
Honestly, i consider deleting my tumblr and leaving this hell hole for good at least once a week. This is because once a week I have to go through and block all of the porn bots that have followed me. I literally block at least 10 per week. My blog is not popular by any means and I never reblog nsfw content. It’s a Voltron fandom blog and yet I’m finding myself getting follows from these bots with obscene (and sometimes triggering) content plastered all over. There’s no way for me to make these blogs go away other than blocking them and that makes me have to go to their blog to do it.
Tumblr staff, you must fix the bot problem. I’m coming to my wits end about it and I’m positive others are too. I find it nearly impossible to believe your programmers are as incompetent as the bugging said of this app makes them seem. So either pay them more to do a better job, or get better programmers.
Also, quit it with the cutesy update taglines. I’m beginning to think you guys don’t take this seriously and use all that money to come up with your witty one-liners instead of actually fixing your app.
Can you guys actually write out what you’ve updated with this app instead of those weird sayings? It’s not even amusing knowing well that this app still has its issues. The silly, careless update notes are starting to make me feel like the staff isn’t taking this app seriously. We still can’t change our blog URLs through mobile. App crashes. No easier way to alternate between accounts with different emails. If Twitter can do it, so can y’all. Also you’ve made a really unnecessary change to adding tags, it’s really a bother to go through the process just to tap and tag a post. Not sure why the layout in general was ever changed. Devs add in little unnecessary changes that didn’t need to be made. Also, where’s the time stamps on posts? And messages? And this website STILL hasn’t fixed the issue with bots, I’m constantly reviving messages and follows from them, it’s annoying to deal with. Along with the mobile app that consumes data, loves to freeze, and has terrible bugs, the website has its own issues. C’mon guys, seriously? Do you even care for Tumblr anymore??
This update wasn’t ready
1. Are we ever getting mobile search back? The search (no matter what safety settings, Top, Recent, or #Tagged options you choose) ONLY SEARCHES the tags field, as opposed to how it USED to search any words in the entire post.
2. The notifications page is a disaster. I want to be able to check individual reblogs to read the tags people add?? When you lump them together, clicking on them only brings up a list of the blogs that reblogged from you. And then clicking on an individual blog only takes you to their blog, not the specific reblog. So how am I supposed to find the specific reblog????
On top of this nightmare, my activity page won’t load properly. The drag and refresh feature isn’t working. I have to close the app and reopen it every single time in order to refresh my notifications. When I drag down, the timer just keeps spinning and the notes never move back to the top, they never update. Also about half the time, if I scroll down a little bit in my activity page, it’s just a blank page. Nothing.
