Tumblr is a place to discover and post about stuff you love, and join communities of people who love that same stuff. Itâs pretty neat.
Q: What can I post on Tumblr?
A: Photos, videos, live videos, songs, textâpretty 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: Whatâs the deal with ârebloggingâ?
A: Itâs a way to take the stuff you find on Tumblr and make it your own. You can repost other peopleâs posts to your own blog. You can add commentary if you like. Other people can do the same with your posts. Thatâs how ideas spread on Tumblr, and itâs how communities form around them.
Q: Whoâs on Tumblr?
A: People who are posting and reblogging about interesting stuff that youâre interested in. Politics. Movies. Memes and such. If youâve 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 youâre interested in. Weâll 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 weâll 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: Whateverâs 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, youâll 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 Tumblrâs 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?

I love this app! I've had it for a few weeks now, and I'm quite getting used to it. Even though sometimes it can be buggy but that's not going to stop me from rating this five stars! But what I would like to see is your own profile picture. Take the feedback into consideration. Thank you! Full Review

I've been a Tumblr user since 2011 and my relationship with it has changed over time. now having a tumblr app in 2017 is a great way of using the site. it brings me great joy at the end of the day to scroll down my feed and laugh at all the posts. thanks for growing and evolving the way your users do :) Full Review

I've seen quite a good group of people trying to maintain a organized blog. I was wondering if you Tumblr Staff, would probably add a massive tag delete? Where if there's empty tags in no use maybe the blogger can just delete the tag. Just to keep the blog organized so they don't have to feel overwhelmed with the mess.

Aside from the fact that tumblr is a toxic site full of bullies and racists. Aside from that, the mobile version is awful. Stripped down features, non-chronological time lines and slow load times are just a few of the problems. The worst: the tumblr staff can access anyone's accounts whenever they want. I know this because they sent me screenshots of my editing menus, proving they did. Avoid tumblr, but avoid this app more. Full Review
Shyanne Bailey Published date: October 5, 2017
As much as I want to like the newer version, I can't. It's hard to use and I wish things weren't made so complicated. I mostly use this for posting fics but I have to make 5 different drafts and try to post from a computer which I don't have. I just wish it was made more post friendly especially to us who use it instead of a computer since we do not own one. Full Review
brit gordon Published date: October 6, 2017
Ok Tumblr, I've had enough of scrolling all the way to the top for fresh content. The button only exists for long enough for you to decide that's what you want to do, then - jokes! - it's gone and you're on your own. It should reappear if you scroll back a certain amount. Full Review
Madison Banks Published date: October 8, 2017
I have been using tumblr since I was an awkward tween. It is my favorite site on the Web and I love everything about this app, except that these days there are so many ads on my feed that it feels like there's more of them than posts. Kind of annoying, but not enough to make me stop using it!! Full Review
Shawn Kendrick Published date: October 8, 2017
Great App, recent update is borked, and pics currently don't load about 40% of the time, gifs sometimes start, sometimes don't regardless of settings, and pics that did load sometimes fade back to the loading pastel color screen. Just seems very slow to not functioning since the last big update. When it works, the app is great, when it doesn't, you don't bother using it till you see a recent update posted. Full Review

Everything great and all but one thing that's driving me crazy! Suggested blogs that I "whoosh away" keep reappearing and it's so annoying. I'd rather see no recommendations instead of seeing the same not-follow-worthy blogs over and over again. Full Review
Imaan Bayat Published date: October 12, 2017
Its so cool and it even replies awesomely but... whenever I try to save my header board and avatar it never works and the moment I press save it goes back to a cone and purple header board I even get a notification that is my second account the first account works but other than that it's awesome. Please fix Full Review

I like it for the most part, but my only problem is safe mode. I'm under 18, so safe mode is apparently automatically enabled and I can't turn it off. However, I still get TAGGED nsfw on my dash. Is there any way you can fix this? Full Review
Sara Abu Khader Published date: October 17, 2017
new safe mode update blocks everything. even harmless media and has stopped me from viewing many things that i like. not to mention how absolutely hard it is to turn off the safe mode on android devices. really bad instructions and useless settings. I used to love this app and i wish you could do something about it. Full Review
Laughing Grossman Published date: October 4, 2017
I enjoy using this app, my only problem is I would like to be able to answer questions with pictures along with text. My browsers are very slowly and glitchy when it comes to trying to answer an ask with a picture and text, it would be simpler to have a function to add an image, maybe even different fonts to the app Full Review
Tanita M. Published date: October 11, 2017
Never the slower loading time. Takes ages to show search results and then centuries to load said results. Won't change my profile picture or header, let me edit my blog title or description,even after the update. The only thing that changed is that now I can't even switch accounts anymore since long press function only displays my secondary blogs which is useless. Update after MONTHS: everything's the same, even after several updates. Perfect app my ass, give us back the switch accounts function. Full Review
Andrew Flores Published date: October 8, 2017
I like the app but for some reason it won't update my avatar picture and its annoying me so much as well as the bio.. It's really displeasing and taking away the full pleasure of Tumblr to me so please fix the issue and I'd gladly give 5 stars Full Review
Published date: October 13, 2017
Next time someone there gets a brainwave they have a great idea, send them home, you and other app developers, don't assume you know what people want, ask, that way you don't look like idiots, just sayin. Oh, is there a way to turn off the automatic Like? Stuff keeps showing up in my like folder that I don't like. Keeps getting worse. Get ready to stare at blank screens for a while as ????? Not sure why we get blank screen, waiting for Flux capacitor to recharge Full Review
Petr MikulÃk Published date: October 17, 2017
Why can't I "whoosh away" any recommended channel? There are some that are forced without option to dismiss them. Also post from channels I no longer fallow are still appearing in my feed even though I always click I DON'T want them. Fix this pls Full Review
Joel Bogunjoko Published date: October 6, 2017
Honestly, one needs to know what their interests are before you get on this website. Let's be honest, there's a lot of pretty terrible things about Tumblr that can definitely overpower everyone uses it. However, once someone finds blogs that share a similar interest with them, one can feel pretty accepted and at home with their community. Full Review
Jeff Quinlan Published date: October 9, 2017
The app works fine. But is there an archive button or awhy to search by post type? That the only reason I prefer to use the browser. If you had those two things I'd use the apps full-time Full Review
Adrian Cox Published date: October 15, 2017
This is undoubtedly and easily the worst app in the store. Tumblr keep updating it but it only seems to make the matters worse. I spend so much time on forums trying to work out how to get some basic functionality out of it. Truly awful and full of bugs. Full Review
Jennifer Farman Published date: October 9, 2017
The update is making me angry... The update to the messages that gives a personal look keeps glitching and not tracking right. Moto Z2 play, would love to be able to send screenshots to developer Full Review
Evlin Published date: October 7, 2017
Still have to scroll all the way up. The button randomly starts working for a few minutes and then stops. Still buggy. Now it keeps randomly turning the chat sounds on. It happens a few times a day. Very annoying. Full Review
Elijah Belmont Published date: October 8, 2017
It's a great social media thing but a lot of times it'll load slow, not respond when I'm trying to post things, not show me the things i search for in the search bar even though i just found the thing in my internet app on the Tumblr site, or glitch out and not let me see the messages people have sent me. Other than that, I have no complaints... Full Review
donald arthars Published date: October 12, 2017
Chews up mega data..... it used 17GB my entire month allowance in 2 weeks last month... and 7 GB in 4 days this month... something seriously wrong with it. Don't use unless you've got unlimited data.. or you're rich. Full Review
Kennedy Lackey Published date: October 4, 2017
Safe mode blocks out LGBT related stuff, random posts with nothing nsfw, and there's no way for anyone under 18 to turn it off. Instead of fixing the slow loading pf pictures, they added gradients to it. No way to blacklist tags you don't want to see. It's more complicated to queue, schedule and draft posts, (I often use the queue to keep my blog active.) Used to tolerate Tumblr, but now I might just stop using it because of these things. FIX YOUR APP. Full Review
Jey Cee Seran Published date: October 9, 2017
I can say that the app isn't really perfect. I still don't get why media contents like videos won't get cached. Whenever I replay a video after watching it, the buffering will go back to square one. Won't it be nice if it would just replay smoothly instead of re-experiencing the bother of waiting for the buffering to end? I could see that the app cache a lot especially/specifically on photos but when it comes to videos, I just can't understand why the buffering has to repeat when replaying. Full Review
Hannah Marie Published date: October 16, 2017
Based on the latest update hardly anything loads, gifs might appear but they freeze. I LOVE tumblr but this problem with lag is so annoying I end up just closing the app after 5 minutes! ð¤ð Full Review
Wilson Gonzalez Published date: October 7, 2017
Everything is now loading slow and why change something that worked great? It now has bugs pics don't load right vids take a very long time to load. Now unable to slide to next function. This app is for smart phones why put button tabs on it? That's not smart? That is going backwards... Full Review
Steve Jeffery Published date: October 14, 2017
Perfect app? Hah! Where's my option to report the seemingly endless stream of porn spam blogs that keep following me? Tired of having to access the desktop site in my mobile's browser to achieve this simple task. Full Review
Joshua Martinez Published date: October 13, 2017
Can the reblog button stay green after each reblog? It's kinda hard to remember if you've already reblogged it or not sometimes, also, is there a way to stop the app from adding a notification for EVERY reblog? It's extremely annoying and if I swipe them away too fast, ALL MY NOTIFICATIONS disappear. Please help. Please. Finally, recently a bug surfaced that would delete notifications from my notifications bar, I'd see 5 notifications, leave my phone for a bit, and come back to see only 2, what the...? RECENT BUG: Reblogs not registering and jist crashing the app. Full Review

The positive reviews are all paid for lies. Tumblr is an extremist left incubator and echo chamber. It should really be burned to the ground. (Don't listen to that) Full Review
Baz Wilson Published date: October 6, 2017
Not sure if it's just me, but whenever I get a notification from Tumblr, saying something like 'this #anime post is perfect', it doesn't show me the post. It will just open the app on the home page. Other than that, I really enjoy this app. Full Review
Josh Knight Published date: October 13, 2017
I can never see likes on other people's blogs. You can't upload a video that actually works. I can't search TAGS within blogs. It brings up no results. The placement of the button to post new pics, gifs, etc is the worse design in history. I constantly press it when I don't want too. It needs to be at the bottom like iOS not floating on top so you can press that when you want to scroll more. It's pretty bad. Full Review
Jason Verwey Published date: October 17, 2017
So Tumblr just rocks which explains most of my rating. The app is a bit clunky & unintuitive but does the trick. Hoping for a nice update spon Full Review
Published date: October 8, 2017
Nothing loads, pics GIFS whatever. It used to take forever for pics to load and now nothing. I'm only giving Tumblr 3 stars because I love it idea of it. The app itself doesn't deserve one star. Every update makes it worse. Full Review
Kandise Williams Published date: October 6, 2017
I love this app. it lets people express themselfs the way they want to. *note* If you have a crapy phone or crapy wifi it maynot work. for all you crapy people out there....Just kidding I 100% think you should download it right now..............................................why are you still reading Go!!!!!!!

This application and their customer service are amazing! At first, I had a hard time trying to understand as to why I was unable to comment and to send a message to my friends and to those I'm following. So then I tried to ask for assistance to their help centre via email. I was a hesitant that it would bear a positive result. Unexpectedly, they have this unbelievable set of urgency in helping out their customers. Their representatives are clever and able to resolve the issues I'm going through. Though, I wasn't really expecting them to get my concerns because I was perhaps unclear in explaining. But, promising, they are good. They fixed it and I can now enjoy the features of the application. Thanks! Full Review
