What can't I view all of my "Likes"?


I love the app, it's fabulous, makes it easy to view the pictures from my saved blogs. There are only 2 areas that need improvement. 1) It will not allow me to scroll through all of my saved LIKES. After about 30 or so pictures instead of it continuing on in my picture liked list it starts to repeat liked pictures that have already been seen and will not move forward in my list......2) If I leave the app the next time that I go into it instead of it allowing me to view pictures from where I left off it kicks me back to the very beginning and forces me to start over viewing pictures I have already seen. Both of those mentioned situation are very annoying and pretty much makes me just leave the app. Updating those items would greatly improve my picture viewing experience and also compel me to use the app more often.

Deal breaker though...


I love this app and in theory, is exactly what I need...BUT because there is no back button feature it is barely usable. For me at least. It makes me sad because I really do like it a lot but it's such an inconvenience not being able to go back to the page you were on that it outweighs whats good about the app. Especially when I am hopping from blog to blog. Please please please add this feature.

It would also be so amazing if there were more ways to discover new blogs. Also, can you update the list of staff picks because that list is really old. It would be cool if you added new trending blogs on a regular basis. discovering new blogs on tumblr Is half the fun.

Thank you. Love you. Please help. 🤗

Cluttered and intrusive interface can't be dismissed


Sadly this app is so distracted by its own advanced features it fails to get the simplest function correct, viewing images. It's cluttered and intrusive interface can never be dismissed.

All I want is a full-screen view of new images from all blogs on which I can swipe left or right to see the next or previous image, and this app doesn't offer it.

Slideshow mode locks you into a timed show with no forward and back controls, rendering the only available full-screen view mode, rigid and useless.

I paid for this app and never use it. I keep checking back hoping for a useful full screen mode. So far not yet.

If you want Advanced features they are all here. But if all you want is to look at images this app does not satisfy. A shame.
