What's New in Version 3.8.2
3.8 was a great release and this one is 0.0.2 better, in terms of having fewer bugs and crashes.
What was so great about 3.8?
• Notifications: Now for asks, answers, and fan mail. Yes, finally.
• Lock Screen: Swipe your notifications to like posts or follow people.
• Passwords: Greatly improved integration with 1Password and Authy, for those who bother to log out.
• Accessibility: Tumblr was already for everyone but now it is even more so.
• Storage: App taking up too much space? Smash the cache. Just feel like smashing something? The cache is a relatively harmless thing to smash.
• Loveliness: Some subtle tailoring, for the connoisseur.

this app has a few problems that are SUPER ANNOYING. 1) whenever you want to look at at another blog through clicking its name on another person's post, it has this weird bug where if you scroll down it will keep dumping that post down and interrupt the flow of regular posts. very frustrating. 2) grayed out photosets or unmoving gifs are EVERYWHERE, even when I'm in a place with a strong internet connection, and so I feel like I can't see anything. also, when the phone is low on storage (which the app itself is guilty of by bloating the cache), image posts will become wholly grayed out and attempting to find their source brings up "blog not found" messages for blogs that do very much exist. 3) when searching for a blog by url, it doesn't always come up in the search bar so there's virtually no way to instantly find certain blogs, even if you do know their url. and 4) this app takes up so much documents and data space...not sure if this is an iPhone problem or a developer one, but the cache for this app gets huge and bloated incredibly quickly and the only way to manually change it is to delete the app itself and then reinstall - a process I have to do roughly every three days. PLEASE fix your cache or at least give us a way to easily manually clear it. there's still functionality, but these bugs should have been fixed ages ago.
Editing posts after they've been published is nearly impossible. At best it's hit or miss with whether or not the Save button is available. 99% of being frayed out. Which means, I have to go to safari, login and then edit like I'm on a desktop since the app refuses to let me save changes. It doesn't matter what you change is too since it can't even work for simple things like adding a tag or fixing a typo. Please fix this; it's been persistent in all app updates since iOS 8 version came out. I literally put off updating my iPad Air to iOS 8 because of this single bug. I put off an entire OS update because of this since I could edit a post on our iPad when my iPhone wouldn't let me in this older version. Now, it's impossible without the aforementioned method. :/
Update: the above is still an issue except now there's also an issue with the app not handling iOS 8.2 well. It's quitting almost constantly now. Normally, it won't force quit unless it's overloaded but now it's quitting when scrolling through a blog, trying to load someone else's post, really anything. Only started happening after doing the OS update today.
Message & Queue Glitches
I've used the tumblr mobile app for years, and this version is the only one I've experienced these glitches with. The app only shows me two messages and when I scroll to read the rest, it's just blue. Sometimes they are old questions I've already answered or deleted, too. There's a similar issue with the queue--either it will only show the first two in line for posting, or they will be items that have already been posted. Super frustrating because those are two features I use most. This has always been the case for all versions, but when you first pull up your dashboard, it refreshes after a few seconds, and that can be annoying when you're trying to look at the post present when you opened the app. I wish that refreshing the page manually was an option or that it would be updated upon opening. Those are the only three glitches I've noticed. There are aspects of this version I dislike but it's more about preference than functionality.
