In my opinion, you can judge a social networking app best by testing if it gets in the way of networking tasks (and how much). Tumblr has a fairly complicated response system compared to Facebook, but it still works intuitively enough to make exchanging all kinds of content with tons of people an easy task. It's a great app for people with an interest in any kind of art, as creative people are somehow drawn to the platform.
Recent updates have eliminated the ability to search my tags. Whenever I search them the page says that there's nothing there. I thought it could be the app, but it also happens when I'm using a computer. It would also be helpful if the app would remain on the last post I viewed even after I've closed the app. It's a hassle to scroll through all of the posts after accidentally closing the app.
There are a ton of tumblr bugs that are making this app glitch. First randomly on people's headers turns up blank and on several gifs added to peoples reblogs. This needs to be fixed immediately. And the lack of response and/or resolution is just annoying! Btw telling me to disconnect then reconnect my wifi and reset my router is not good advice considering the problem is on your end judging by other people's posts of having the same problem. Yeah way to help, not.
"in your orbit" & "in case you missed it" are perpetually obnoxious with no option to disable & only make me want to use this app less. ive blocked or dismissed the same suggested users many times & they continue to show up in my feed. please just show posts in chronological order. edit 2/23/2018- now there is an option to turn those off. a social media network actually addressing things & changing for the better is very refreshing. thank you.
What's not to like on this app? If you can't find the specific type of blog you want in Tumblr search, simply type blog interest in Google search followed by the word Tumblr. Bam! Whole list of exactly what you want. But that's rarely ever needed. I love Tumblr.
I think it's wrong that Tumblr is restricting what you can search. I actually can't access certain tumblr's without previously searching them in the web outside the app subscribing to them and then opening them in the app. Either if I try to search for them through the app or opening them without subscribing it is impossible to access this tumblr's in the app.
Thank you for choosing Tumblr as your portal to the exciting world of internet content! In order to provide you with best possible experience we occasionally update the app to fix bugs and improve performance.
