Tumblr for Android

By nyan Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Sep 8, 2014

Tumblr's Android app makes it easier than ever to update your blogs and the blogs you follow. We could log in or out of our Tumblr account; post or share pictures, animated GIFs, video clips, music, text, quotes, and more; edit and delete posts; search for, follow, and unfollow blogs; and do nearly anything we could do from Tumblr's website. Tumblr 3.3 is suitable for Android 2.2 and up.

Pros

More social: This app enhances Tumblr's social media experience in many ways, not the least of which is having a handset-optimized interface with you at all times.

Unified experience: The app's Dashboard is a slightly pared down version of the main site, only it's even easier to scroll through. The app's image quality is impressive.

Extras: We could save unfinished messages as drafts; queue posts for sending to save data; edit posts in plain text, HTML, or markdown; edit URLs and Source URLs; and perform other maintenance tasks.

Cons

Create: We couldn't create a new Tumblr blog from the app but had to use the Web interface instead; something we hope Tumblr addresses in subsequent updates.

Archives: There doesn't seem to be a way to access the useful blog Archive feature from the app, though oddly enough we could do so from Tumblr's main site in our browser.

Bottom Line

Tumblr claims its Android app is a faster and better way to view and manage blogs on the go, and it's true. It's a must for Tumblr users.

Developer's Description

Tumblr is a place to express yourself, discover yourself, and bond over the stuff you love. Whether it's fandoms or philosophy, fashion or felines, Tumblr is where your interests connect you with your people.

EXPRESS YOURSELF

-- Post photos, GIFs, text, videos, live videos, audio, anything.

-- Make your own GIFs. Cover them in stickers and text, if you like.

BE YOURSELF

-- Look however you want. Customize your Tumblr's colors, fonts, layout, everything.

-- Follow whatever topics you're interested in. Find new ones you didn't even know existed.

CONNECT WITH YOUR PEOPLE

-- Join millions of people in millions of communities across millions of #tags.

-- See something you love? Reblog it to your Tumblr and start a conversation.

-- Start a private conversation with your friends in messaging.

-- Or just follow, if you're feeling shy. No big deal.
