tumblr is great except there are so many good urls that people would like to actually use but they're taken by bots or people who are now inactive and have no posts. it gets really frustrating when you're trying to get a new blog url and all the ones you want are taken by people who aren't even using them. please start deleting blogs that have been inactive for years so that other people can use them.
Can you fix the search bar? Every time I try to look for something in my tags, the app keeps telling me that there's nothing, I have to scroll to the post with the exact tag I am looking for and tap it, then it finds posts filled under it. Also, because of it the "we found nothing" line which is supposed to be funny makes me furious instead. No further complaints about the app, it works fine.
It's suuuper slooow even in areas where there's good connection, even chrome can load tumblr pages no problem but this literally takes an indefinite amount of time to load anything, IF it'll actually load anyhthing at all. Also there were instances where if I look at someone's following or even in the search bar it says nothing even when I google it and there's definite results.
Tumblr is my favorite social Media. The app isn't perfect-- sometimes icons don't change right away when other users change them, for example. However, this app allows you to express yourself and makes that expression viewable to others, instantly. I also really appreciate the desktop themes and the messaging system.
Almost halfway through 2017 and still no option to turn off video auto-loading while on WiFi. I guess being able to use the app is less important than fast-loading of videos :/. Hopefully you'll consider it, since you're so much about saving data... (Not every WiFi is unlimited data).
New update blows chunks, going from horizontal to vertical view ALWAYS irritatingly takes you back to the top of your feed, forcing you to scroll back to where you were reading. Luckily, that's not very far because the app crashes within 5 minutes of opening it EVERY SINGLE TIME, so you can't read very much anyway.
Tumblr 8.5, what a time to be alive.

A new(ish) setting in your settings. When you’re in data-saving mode and using cellular data, GIFs won’t download until you tap on them.
