They don't listen.

Erin Toney

This app had potential to be great. However, they clearly don't listen to feedback. They keep fixing things that don't need to be fixed. They’ve make the app harder to navigate. They're more concerned about the aesthetic than functionality. Every time they "fix" something, a new bug appears while the old bugs go unresolved. Right now, I can't even make more than one post without restarting the app. I go to post it and nothing happens. I try refreshing my dash and nothing. Not saved to drafts or put in the queue. It just disappears. I'm having to copy everything I write just in case the app eats it. Then the app has weird glitches. Like the trends. There are 10 trends but I only see 9. In order to see the 10th I have to tap on the 9th and go down. Also, now it takes forever to load things. Doesn’t matter how good your connection is. A snail’s pace is faster. But I could maybe a little less annoyed if they would stop with the “since you’ve been gone” and “in your orbit” posts in my dashboard. In order to get to the most recent posts I have to scroll through about 10 of them. If I wanted to see what I missed from blogs I follow, I’ll just scroll down. If I cared about these blogs you’re trying to show me I’d already be following them. There’s enough “recommendations” on my dashboard. I don’t need more unsolicited advertising of other blogs when I just want to see the blogs I follow. Oh and the “best stuff first” switch doesn’t work.



The new updates have added lots of new annoying features such as recommended blogs on specific blogs instead of just on the dashboard (newsflash, if I wanted to follow those blogs I'd go follow them from/because of posts I see on the person I'm already following, it's not like I don't know they exist, I just don't typically want to follow them), non-chronological dashboard even *after* turning off the best stuff first option (this is my biggest pet peeve! If I wanted non-chronological I'd go somewhere else), and if you aren't on for even one day it will have your first five minutes of speed scrolling be "here's what you missed!" etc. posts, even if you've already seen said posts. One of the reasons I hate that is it takes forever to go away and once again non-chronological posts are rather annoying to deal with. The best stuff first is crushing smaller artists and other content creators, leading to dramatic slashes in page activity, which is discouraging people from creating and even affecting some artists' livelihoods. Everyone I've talked to about these features also really dislikes them, especially the non-chronological posts (there's a few posts circulating with tens of thousands of notes about how to turn the best stuff first off, so that should be your biggest hint that people don't want it!!!), so please fix this!

Crashed in big time


I have being using tumblr for over a year now and it crashes me in big time. As I clean up on blogs that I follow the number stays on 514 but nothing to click on follow or unfollow and dashboard did not move at all as I tab for the update. Both web and app absolutely failed to move at all. Social media site like tumblr needs to be significantly improved on the platform. I am working very hard on my leisure to develop tumblr society for the world. The system video, photo, and multiple formats are very restrictive. We need tumblr to admit that most of there users are not children in fact very small percentage and so the platform needs to be a whole lot more adult friendly and at the same time more true society interactive social friendly. It is being existing for ten years already right? Please completely redesign and turn your app to be minimum 18 years or older and preferably 21 years and older. It doesn’t make any sense to do what Twitter or Facebook can already do and in other format alright. Seriously, can your team member truly just listen and truly make that difference? Most of your tumblr user don’t mind of paying for subscription, however, all of us care about all the inconvenience. This cannot wait, please make the major redesign and changes at once and not waiting at all. Your teams technology is too outdated, it needs completely overhaul and be five thousand times better and I mean it.
