Last Update Needs To Go
I use Tumblr a lot. I check it daily. It's my main form of social media. But this last update has me really irritated and here's why.
I was hoping the update would fix the massive glitch on the Activity tab that has been around for weeks now. It will get stuck in "refresh" and only show the loading dial or a white screen, and when it does actually load, it doesn't bounce the page back up. The gap where the loading dial should be stays as white space and the activity pops up below it. As you scroll, the title bar stays stuck in the middle of the screen while everything else moves.
But no, that wasn't fixed. Even after this update, that still isn't fixed. All the new update did was make it EASIER for people to remove captions and attempt to steal credit for posts. Yup. That sounds like a great idea - let's ignore the constant cries for a better messaging system or a more effective blocking system. Our users really hate it when their captions are deleted, so let's make it EASIER for people to do that!!
Seriously. Tumblr is a great platform but you all seriously need to stop fixing things that don't need to be fixed and actually put effort towards the features we keep saying we want.
Taken steps back!
Please do not try to 'update' something that is not broken. The newest update really does NOT look nice at all, its harder to read posts, harder to see if the person has reblogged the post or made it themselves, and you cant really tell which person is which. It fixed the problem of large posts going off-screen, but did it in the worst possible way. I have no need for the 'suggested blogs' section of this site, it's absolutely useless to me. The tagging system is STILL messed up and unorganized after so long and so many useless updates, and the blocking system needs to implement not seeing the blocked blog AT ALL on your dash. Navigation and customization is MORE inconvenient due to needlessly placing things under tabs, where BEFORE the updates they were visible and easy to get to. There needs to be a good, working blacklist system for certain tags or people. Using this site has become inconveniencing while on pc, and I used mobile to get away from most of that disorganized mess. Though mobile and the site ARE NOT completely horrible, there are still problems not being fixed or focused on, yet new updates that don't do anything useful come out many times.
Kind of disappointed
I have to say, I've been using tumblr for the longest time and even though the website is great itself, as many others have stated there are many bugs that need to be fixed and it's very irritating. The auto refreshing is so annoying and whenever I see a post I find amusing or entertaining and want to reblog it, it scrolls back to the top of my feed and I have to scroll through many posts to find it again. I've been having a problem recently where when I search for something and scroll through the images, the app will suddenly crash and I'll search it again. The same thing happens every time I reach a certain picture and I've given up on it. This app really needs to be fixed, please consider everybody else's comments and try to fix the problems.
This latest update as well has completely ruined the search bar and crashes every time I type something in. Great job! You made the app even worse than it was before.
