Deep within this app is a morsel of code that makes videos on Tumblr possible. Now that we've updated it, posting and playing videos will be that much more savory.

Ratings and Reviews
I love Tumblr, but the app version needs so much improvement
Basically the title. Firstly, NOTIFICATIONS. Sometimes I don’t even get them, despite having them turned on both on my phone and within the app. Friends on Tumblr say the same things happen to them. In addition to not being notified, sometimes I AM notified but when I go to the app and click notifications, nothing’s there? My post might have more notes, but I’d have to manually check it myself and refresh my page to find out whether it was a reblog, reply or like.
Next is uploading posts. I get that the app is less powerful than a browser so it’s going to take longer, but it takes legit hours for 2 or 3 gifs to post sometimes - if it posts at all. Sometimes it’ll load all the way and then say “error”. Same thing with videos, and as someone who uses tumblr to promote my music, that really bugs me. I always have to use my laptop to share a link. (I would say it’s my WiFi, but it works just fine/quickly on the browser version.)
Lastly, formatting. When i try and edit my bio, it almost always jumbles up the words. This only happens on the app, and while it’s not a big deal, it’s definitely somewhat annoying to have to retype everything or just settle for a simple emoji.
I love hanging out on Tumblr, especially in comparison to apps like Twitter and stuff, but the app can be a pain to deal with. I hope this stuff gets fixed soon.
I love Tumblr, I hate this app
This app has so many issues that have yet to be solved after at least a year or two of them existing. Despite the messaging system, which I’m sure has been critiqued plenty, inconsistently and unreliably updating or not updating while you’re using the app- you also can’t click on asks or even keep track of your asks in any way through the app. If you want to go look at one of your apps, you had better be keeping constant track of whoever asked it because all you’re going to get is a notification, and clicking on the notification (if it was answered) only takes you to the person’s profile. The app will randomly crash for seemingly no reason, even while under little to no stress. The double-click-to-like feature doesn’t work unless you tap a large body of text or an image and even then, it may not register properly (maybe user error but still inconvenient). You also can’t keep track of submissions in any way unless you just miraculously remember- I think you get notified but I don’t even think you get that much. Aside from all this, there’s a myriad of other functionalities and nuances that are almost entirely unimportant (like how if you click on a person’s name that’s attached to a post, it’ll take you to a dedicated page with nothing but that post and a couple other posts from that person’s profile below it). This was a poorly-thought-through review but I think it covers most bases. Otherwise, it works enough.
It looks aesthetically very nice, the user interface of course is very friendly and efficient, finding generally anything has not been a problem....BUT theres major bugs in the app and it starts for me in the notifications/messages button where if you click on it no matter how long you’ve been on the app it crashes the max times my app has crashed in a row is now 7 and on occasions it goes away but doesn’t for a while. Then the notifications refuse to show you what’s been updated the only way i have been able to is by switching over to my second account then coming back to my original and it finally shows new notifications normally i would have to pray and close the app and hopefully it would show new notifications and not crash. Next we have the messages and people being on it always has the wrong time for when people have been on....someone could literally be making posts but it says they were on 3 hours ago?? Like what’s going on with that. Another problem is with playing a video and if you scroll it can either get stuck playing and it literally continues until you close the app or when you play the video then scroll it just continues playing for a few moments then stops. As far as i know this is the most bugs i’ve gotten recently on this app hopefully the developers see this.
