What's New in Version 4.0.1
Quick little bug fix.
Big new version number: 4.0
Big new features in it: Oh, lots. Almost too many to list. But here goes:
◆ Create new blogs from inside the app
Ever get an idea for a blog while you’re out on the town, or up in an aeroplane? Make it, name it, give it an avatar, give it a header image, title it, describe it, post your first post to it—all before you even return to the Earth.
◆ Make video posts using a video’s URL
Copy a URL from YouTube or Vimeo or another such site, slap it into the app, and you got yourself a video post. This is apparently your most-requested feature for the mobile app. Smart. We love it. Here you go.
◆ Submit to blogs that accept submissions
Situation: You’re deep-sea diving with your waterproof phone, snapping pics of fish and treasure chests and the sea god Neptune. Stuff that’s perfect for that submission-based SCUBA blog you follow. Now you can submit a post to it right from the briny deep.
◆ A widget for your widget collection
Witness today’s trending tags without even opening the app. Install it thusly: 1. From anywhere in your phone, swipe down from the top of your screen to open up your “Today” view. This is where all your widgets live. 2. Flick your way to the bottom, then tap the “Edit” button. 3. Find “Trending on Tumblr” in the list. There ya go.
◆ Filter searches by post type
Just looking for photos? We’ll just show you photos. Just looking for chats? Sure. You can do that, too.
◆ A heap of other niceties
• New icon. Feels good under your finger.
• Sticky search bar. Convenient for those heavy search sessions.
• Sticky avatars on iPad. Always, always know who made the post you’re currently reading. Never forget.
• Clean, fresh look for the iPad.
• GIFs load in a much more pleasing fashion. You’ll see.
• You can delete blogs from the app, which sounds like something only a troublemaker would need to do, but okay.
Call the exterminator - you've got bugs!
The version has arrived and is full of bugs. The once solid 't' graphic has been eaten away to just a shell, which adequately reflects the problems laying inside when you open the app.
Besides the annoying advert that gets stuck at the top of he screen, the most obvious and annoying bug that has infested Tumblr is the slow down of how content is loaded. Remember dial-up internet? Maybe you read about it in your history books? Well it's back thanks to Tumblr. Streaming videos and pictures load at incredibly slow speeds and, just like dial-up, right before you get to see the whole thing, the app crashes and you are left with no option but to restart and go on a search for the illusive content. Don't get me wrong, I still love Tumblr and would even wear a t-shirt that says so ( hint, hint) but there is definitely room for improvement. Until the next update, I'll keep my Xanax handy to calm my nerves as I revisit the early-days of the Internet.
I Love Tumblr
This Site Is NOT for the "normal" *shivers* people ... I love this site I love the people .. this place is where we try to achieve equality and we have like everything you could ever think of and if we don't then the world is just not ready for your search .... This site is for the people with really twisted senses of humor , but will defend you to the bitter end if you've made their friendship , Tumblr is the home of the forever alone people, The people who binge watch entire series of TV shows because they like the psychological torture that the end of a season brings ... We have our own sort of language , and we are alll ..., ALL GAY , at least a tiny bit ... anyway the website is great, but the mobile app needs some improvement, or rather to stop changing... thats why I cannot give a perfect 5/5
Bypass of Internet Restrictions
I set up restrictions to ensure no adult content is able to be accessed through any internet browser via iPhone settings. I understand that there will be some blogs on tumblr that may bypass that due to unusual circumstances and the actual restrictions on the settings themselves. As such, certain blogs I've come across that do, I add to prevent unwanted content to be displayed directly to the always block list.
However this only works on mainstream browsers. This app for whatever reason bypasses all restrictions set altogether. Perhaps some kind of fix would be needed to help parents monitor and control the pornographic blogs that bypass the phone browsing restrictions through the app? Thanks!
