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.
Long Way to Go
This app refreshes itself all the time. I'm scrolling down, get a text and check, and get sent right back to the most recent image not to the image I was last at. It hasn't even been a minute off the app, and it's refreshing itself. Please fix this! Gifs freeze all the time even on a strong wifi connection. Needs a lot of quality of life improvement to make it a decent app. Until the dash refresh issue is fixed, this app still only gets 1 star.
Also, what does a tumblr update even fix? It's all just dumb jokes in the "what's new" area. It doesn't actually tell us they're doing.
Really the only gripe I have with this app is that the release notes don't really say what's been fixed or point out new features.. Everything in the update descriptions are very informal and come off as attempts (and successes) to be funny. I like it, but I really wish that the developers could do BOTH informal and formal release notes.
The app itself is great though :)
