Description

Tumblr is a place to discover and post about stuff you love, and join communities of people who love that same stuff. It’s pretty neat.

Q: What can I post on Tumblr?
A: Photos, videos, live videos, songs, text—pretty much anything.

Q: Can I make GIFs?
A: Yes, you CAN make GIFs! You can make them out of videos, bursts, live photos, or just shoot them on the spot.

Q: What’s the deal with “reblogging”?
A: It’s a way to take the stuff you find on Tumblr and make it your own. You can repost other people’s posts to your own blog. You can add commentary if you like. Other people can do the same with your posts. That’s how ideas spread on Tumblr, and it’s how communities form around them.

Q: Who’s on Tumblr?
A: People who are posting and reblogging about interesting stuff that you’re interested in. Politics. Movies. Memes and such. If you’ve ever seen anything interesting on the internet, chances are it came from Tumblr.

Q: How do I talk to people on Tumblr?
A: A few different ways. You can comment on a post, or you can reblog a post to your own Tumblr and add commentary, or you can send a private message. Whatever suits the occasion.

Q: How do I find stuff to follow?
A: Search for whatever you’re interested in. We’ll show you great posts about that stuff, and get you following the people who make those posts. Oh, you can also follow a search itself, and we’ll put sift the best material from that search right into your dashboard.

Q: What kind of stuff are people talking about on Tumblr right now?
A: Whatever’s happening in the world. The real world, the world of fiction, the world of pop culture, the world of academics, the world of safety and justice, the world of sports. Whatever world you live in, you’ll find it among all the trending topics in the search tab.

Q: Do all Tumblrs look the same?
A: No! You can totally customize your Tumblr’s appearance, right down to the colors and fonts you use.

Q: How will people find my Tumblr?
A: Tag your posts. Tumblr is full of passionate communities of people who are constantly searching through tags for new posts about stuff they love. Your stuff could be that stuff.

Q: Am I ready to download Tumblr, deepen my perspective, and forever change the way I think?
A: Yes.

Can you guys please just listen to your customers and stop toying with the app. When I first got this app it was amazing but then you started updating it like every week. Updates are supposed to make the app better not add more glitches. But that's exactly what your updates do. Then you want ignore us when we send messages to Tumblr support. Seriously it's not cool if you don't know what you're doing then just leave things alone Full Review

Tumblr is a great social app where you can find vast accounts of different media to satisfy any interest. I use this app to learn and perceive things that I am curious of, and it is very well organised with any information. I, personally, use this app whenever I am in tune with my emotions or need to relieve stress. A full 10 stars ✨❤ Full Review

It's just alright. Works fine for the most part for me but there are bugs that need to get fixed. I can't receive Asks for example or find any setting for turning them off nor any help for this issue. Searching for a hash tag on a mutual's blog does absolutely nothing. Little things like these need to be fixed before I would give more than 3 stars or give a positive recommendation. Full Review

Any chance you guys could show the tiniest amount of professionalism and not be complete idiots about the changelogs? I know it's boring if all you can put there is "bug fixes and performance improvements" all the time, but if that's what it is, then that's what it is. Nothing wrong with wanting to make it funny, but it still should be informative. There are ways to achieve both, try looking at Discord for example if you need inspiration. Full Review

Well they managed to fix search as far as I can tell. "Sensitive content" is still a broken mess of nothing, and I am sure they are other problems I haven't noticed yet. I would not care as much but instead of listing what was changed/fixed the update notes are a bunch of utter nonsense. Core features that you have forced on people do not work, fix those and then make your stupid jokes. Full Review

Yo Tumblr idk what happened but ever since the last update I have to restart the app sometimes when I want to refresh my activity page & don't tell me it's network connectivity problems! Cause you guys are the only ones with slow loading times. It's baadddddddd. It doesn't stop me from using the app, it's just an inconvenience Full Review

Can you give us a description of the new features instead of your lame jokes? I can't believe how terrible the app is now. When you use search in your blog, nothing appears. Posts are a mess, the images get mixed with others. And can you do something with the porn blogs that spam every tag? Full Review

It's all good, however with every update the app is getting slower! Make it lighter and faster! We Users always start thinking if something is wrong with our phones, I had to hard reset my phone twice to see if something changes but nah didn't help! Full Review

Ability to download pictures is broken 90% of the time. Images save as random guids that are different from their web filenames. The images themselves are inexplicably a fraction of the size of their desktop versions. UI placement isn't customisable. Annoying ad placement. I would genuinely pay to see these issues fixed.

With every update there is an issue. Now it's being able to switch to anonymous. Before that it was accessing new messages (had to completely exist the app to read them). And if you report the problem its the same useless answer (e.g. uninstall and reinstall the app) Full Review

I can't submit any anon asks, only public ones :( The "public" button won't change to "anononymous" whenever I tap on it. Every time I have to go on browser and use desktop mode to send in anon instead of using the app directly. It's frustrating especially I don't have a good internet connection and have to wait more to load extra pages. Full Review

Ever since the last update, I haven't been able to save gifs to my phone. I'll click "download photo" but nothing saves. It's really annoying. I thought this new update would fix the problem. It didn't. Please figure out a way to fix this. Full Review

I really like the app I can find anything I want but there is a new problem, when I search nothing shows up so I thought that there is a problem with my account so created a new account but the problem is not solved, I tried everything but still didn't word. Note: I tried to active 18+ posts but even that didn't work. Full Review

The app used to work just fine. It seems that after maybe two updates ago pictures take a long time to load. I can make a sandwich and come back and only one or two pictures in a set have loaded. This is really frustrating because it's not my phone or connection. Full Review

It was fine but now I can't go on anonymous in the ask section of people's pages. My pictures and gifs take forever to load and sometimes don't at all. There are also glitches within the gifs. Not as much fun to use anymore. Disappointed! Full Review

Always has issues loading plain old JPEGs. Gifs I understand, but JPEGs? I've now had to reinstall because nothing loads and the app suggests logging out and back in as a solution for some reason? Also now I try to login through PC and apparently my account is compromised. We know you don't care but I hope you understand you developers have been bad at your jobs for years. Fix this rudimentary loading issue for the love of god. Full Review

So i have been using Tumblr for a while now and so far it's good. It's easy to communicate with other Tumblr users through the chat option and the "Post" interface is really simple and visually immersive. But, i noticed it had achieved it's bugs and flaws over the updates. First of all, The GIFS: Before all the updates, my device could handle them normally and send then in chat, but now my device has tremendous lag when trying to use them. 2nd of all, the "sensitive content" thing. I tried an experiment, i noticed that Tumblr blocked several photos from me even though the profiles said "No NSFW Content". So one day i made a new account, logged me in as 18, and i checked the exact same photo, and to my surprise, there was nothing wrong with the post. I hope that you can fix this in the next updates. Cheerios! Full Review

The app is great and works almost flawlessly. I have however not been able to use the DM's for months. I have sent feedback multiple times with no response from anyone...I get the notifications that I have a message but it just pops up a bubble that something went screwy Full Review

Disabling the anon ask feature for mobile really sucks (esp for those who are too anxious to send them otherwise and using browser can be inconvenient). The whole non-chronological post order....nobody wants that. Even if you can turn it off. And nothing loads, probably less than a third of photo/gif/video posts loaded today. It's gotten worse since this update but it's usually pretty bad. And my internet is just fine Full Review

Hey do you think maybe you could stop screwing up perfectly good things and solve actual problems that people have been complaining about for years? Every update makes things more slow and glitchy (unless it's an ad, then it loads in a heartbeat. Go figure.) Full Review

I like Tumblr alot, I use it to post my art. I just started and I'm not sure if it'll prove worth it in the long run but so far I like being able to get my stuff out there and seeing what others have done. (Plz check out "I he-art") Full Review

This app used to work perfectly but as of late it has been doing this thing where instead of preserving where i was on my dash it resets back to the top and refreshs on its own. Also when clicking on recommended blogs it crashes Full Review

It would be best if suggested tumblr posts that have been "x"-ed on one's dashboard should not reaapear once the dashboard is refreshed. It's very annoying when they reappear an they shouldn't reappear because they've been "x"-ed. It only means that the user does not want to see the suggested tumblr posts. Why impose something to users if they don't want it? I just hope that this would be read by the developers and that they're listening. Full Review

You know, I understand being owned by Yahoo is a challenge, but you still have money to fix these problems that need to be fixed. I can't even open my asks. "Something went screwy". I can't reply to posts. There's a problem with searching on mine or anyone else's blog, NOTHING HAPPENS. Tumblr guys, instead of concentrating on random "cool" features you guys "think" we need, why don't you fix all these bugs that are pissing off your loyal patrons. I've had my Tumblr for almost 8 years, and the fact I'm having this many problems with the app is ridiculous. You guys are breaking my heart. Full Review

It's a good app, not many bugs but there is one thing that quite annoys me and that's that I'm unable to play audio of any kind. I'm not sure if this is the app or my phone, but everytime i try to play audio, it just sends me to a black screen until I press back.. Full Review

Instead of listening to the sites suggestions of fixing the app and getting rid of the grossly large amount of porn bots, neo nazis, and literal pedophiles, they decide to roll out features literally no one wants and doesn't attempt to fix whatever is making their site crash. Literally the only thing keeping me on this godforsaken social media is all the hilarious posts. In short just use the mobile browser and lurk on there, and pray staff doesn't do anything to mess that up too Full Review

Somehow, with /every/ update, tumblr manages to get worse. Every single time. How is that even possible? Yikes. This whole "safe mode" is pointless and blocks perfectly harmless posts while letting actual NSFW posts through. Good job guys, good job. Full Review

I love Tumblr and I use it all the time but I really dislike the auto play of gifs and such. I know there's a button for disabling them when not connected to the internet but I'd rather only have them play when I want them to play, it just helps scrolling faster when they're not constantly playing as I try to scroll past. I hope they add a feature for it soon... Full Review

I used to love logging into my app everyday. But it seems that gets more frustrating to do now because it constantly tells me it won't load due to connectivity issues. This happens on both wifi and data connections. That can be since all my other apps work just fine on both. It's only Tumblr. Just fix it. Full Review
