Excellent App 👍🏻👌🏻

I love this app. It runs smoothly, loads fast, etc etc etc. I just downloaded it and I already love it. The messaging feature is awesome as well as the search bar, which allows you to look for not only accounts, but posts, pictures, tags, etc.
Stop With the Recommendations
kilroy1941 on 5/22/2018
The newest version of Tumblr has taken to offering recommendations for blogs to follow based on search history. Unfortunately, many of these recommendations are way off from my search history and have little to do with anything I am interested in. I have tried in vain to get them to stop adding the recommendations to my feed, but every time I log back in there are more recommendations that I am not interested in. The next update for Tumblr needs to get rid of this issue.
Recommended posts are an eyesore!
rexrexrex on 5/22/2018
I follow plenty of blogs already, I don't need a METRIC TON of totally random "recommended" posts filling up my dashboard. Between ads and recommended posts, it's like you don't want me to see the blogs I'm already subscribed to and happy with. Plus, there's lots of other ways to find new blogs if I want; I don't need an algorithm shoveling garbage in my direction.
Love it
Fundaisy345 on 5/22/2018
So much funnnnn
Tumblr is amazing
Hcicickcgjfiys on 5/22/2018
So good to keep you organized and a great place to express yourself!!💗
katherinenapolitano on 5/22/2018
Best aesthetic I’ve received from an app
Make tumblr great again!
dlady13 on 5/22/2018
Please, I don’t need to be seeing 4-5 “suggested” tumblr accounts on my feed continuously! Not to mention they are completely irrelevant to what I follow and post. I have to swoosh away stupid suggested posts every time I get by 3-4 posts of people I follow! I understand advertisements every now and then, but this is ridiculous. Makes me not even want to log in anymore!! Fix this!!
6 ads before I saw my content
Cmh395 on 5/22/2018
I had to go through six ads and suggested post before I got to my feed this is absolutely freaking ridiculous. Stop aggressively pushing content and are freaking faces. Especially when we don’t ask for it
Nothing new
Typo00 on 5/22/2018
Every update you do fixes nothing. I’m still seeing multiple followers of the same people. The app has lag. Fix the real problem. I see nothing new.
It’s pretty Gucci.
U need a better edit app on 5/22/2018
I actually like the content on this app... Even though it’s made by other people it’s easier than most apps to find my interests.
Chick Full of Ads
SpamSpamSpamAndSpam on 5/22/2018
This used to be great, but now Oath and Tumblr have started to serve up Ads as content. It was occasional, and well labeled as ads, now they are “suggested posts”. So dumb. A waste of time and bandwidth.
Bring back last version
MrNiceGuyIsGone on 5/22/2018
At least the old version didn't log me out all the time... Sick of it showing blogs at the top I don’t follow! My block list is so LONG right now it’s ridiculous! About to dump the app altogether.
New update for recommendations
joshallen13 on 5/22/2018
It's TERRIBLE. Every page refresh is the same post over and over. Please fix this.
kjw0309 on 5/22/2018
About half of the dash is recommended posts or ads. Definitely had to delete.
Posts From Blogs I Don't Follow
ShyLittleSarah on 5/22/2018
I keep getting blocks of four or five recommended posts in a row and repeatedly have to hide them. I like the content posted by the blogs that I do follow but my recommended posts are so far off from the blogs I follow it's a frustrating and abrupt change. I don't want to see them anymore but I don't know what I can do since I already don't follow them and hide the posts before I can even see most of them.
mynameisntkyle on 5/22/2018
Recent update has ads everywhere. Also it has recommendations thrown in every few post. So stuff you don’t care about is thrown in your face. The ads are full screen and you have to scroll through them. Basically ruined my tumblr experience.
PimptressG on 5/22/2018
I just love how it works and all the things you have access to.
Puts things in the timeline you didn’t ask for
JeffStreet on 5/22/2018
More ads and more recommended posts, less of the the stuff you want.
New update destroys app flow and UX
Pandantics on 5/22/2018
For some reason tumblr decided to "suggest" random posts again on their mobile app. It completely ruins the flow of the content I browse and disrupts my experience. The worst part is THEY'VE DONE THIS BEFORE AND PEOPLE HATED IT SO THEY REMOVED IT BUT NOW SOME IDIOTS HAVE DECIDED TO BRING BACK THIS SYSTEM. WHY?! There's no way to turn off the random suggestions either. Tumblr has a wonderful knack of driving longtime users away by forcing their propaganda down your throats. No wonder the site died after Yahoo bought it out.
Recommended Blogs/Posts ):
mstryanonymous on 5/22/2018
The new update that includes more recommended posts and blogs are, for lack of a better term, a nuisance. In a way, it ruins the experience of having a tailored dashboard. If there was an option to disable this feature, that would be amaaaazing.
Good content, poorly managed
Yourappislame on 5/22/2018
1. Injecting your suggestions into my feed is ruining my experience. You already provide an explore option to discover new content. It's bad enough that I have to see an ad every 5th post, now this? 2. When using the app on ipad, it crashes every 15 mins or so. It’s like it overloads or something. Maybe it wouldn’t have to work so hard if you guys cut out things like suggested posts.
Too many suggested follows
Jhaas68865 on 5/22/2018
Have at least 6-7 before I get to my feed. One every so often is not bad but this is crazy.
xWISERx on 5/22/2018
Spams feed with garbage
Love tumblr
Oliybby on 5/22/2018
I love tumblr but it always freezes and crashes and sometimes my phone shuts down because of it too.. please fix this!
Nothing but ads
w0odyallen on 5/22/2018
There are too many ads and recommendations. I'd pay to remove them if I could.
Please remove blog recommendations from individual blogs!
InTheDarkTrees on 5/21/2018
Blog recommendations have returned to individual blogs. Tumblr had removed this new feature in response to overwhelmingly negative user feedback, but it's back again. —It's fair enough to have recommendations appear on the dashboard and in search results, but most users want to choose what appears on their own blogs.
Let us turn of Recommended posts
DISman21 on 5/21/2018
I don’t want recommendations, ever. I especially don’t want them every single time I use the app, especially when they cause the app to malfunction. Just let me turn it all off
Stop showing the posts I don’t follow.
HiDylan on 5/21/2018
Stop showing the posts I don’t follow.
النــوبي on 5/21/2018
very slow to open picture and video ' I have good internet connection but I don't know why like this,!
Works great sometimes, with lots of ads
Wiuara on 5/21/2018
A recent update has flooded my feed with ads; full screen ads, recommended pages, recommended posts, recommended people. Just show me what I subscribed to! I understand that some ads are unavoidable, but it has increased so much it's hard not to notice the ads drowning out the actual content.
alex.drew on 5/21/2018
I love tumblr, It has a lot of different people on there like any other social media But you can actually chose what you want to see, recently I’ve been following positivity hashtags to build self love and try to recover from what I’ve been struggling with. Its been extremely helpful and i feel more better, apart from the beautiful communities on there the app is perfectly organized and doesn’t lag or anything. I also love how i can costume my profile to how ever i want it to look.
Way too many ads
Hogwild5274 on 5/21/2018
It has way too many ads now that aren’t even applicable.
What Happened to my Dashboard?
chevalierdulac on 5/21/2018
My dashboard has been flooded with recommendations like never before. I do not follow these people, and my feed is being obstructed by multiple recommendations for things I have no interest in. Please fix my dashboard ASAP.
Remove Recommended ads on Dashboard
Giancarlo305 on 5/21/2018
These “recommended ads” are annoying. They should NOT flood my dashboard. I have to scroll through 4 or 5 ads before seeing my followers. Please remove ASAP.
Too much nsfw when i dont need it
BeatShmeat on 5/21/2018
Not enough nsfw when i do need it I only use this for porn and even then its just videos and they never load
Many problems with the app that never seemed to get fixed
Gin T. on 5/21/2018
I gave this app 2 stars in the past but am changing it to one. The app literally never seems to improve. The first five posts were all recommended posts that were completely unrelated to anything I posted about. And now throughout my dash I see three to four recommended posts in a ROW with content COMPLETELY unrelated to my blog. The recommended blogs used to be good but now they’re all unrelated as well. Disappointing.
recommend is trash!
CALIBOY524 on 5/21/2018
remove recommend!so annoying!
Cheesegod on 5/21/2018
You geniuses added toggles to turn off “In your orbit” posts which was GREAT. Then, a few months later, you add in “Recommended” posts which are basically the same thing as “In your orbit” but you can’t turn them off. WHY????? WHY????????? I do not want recommendations. You keep recommending me weird sonic the hedgehog fan art. I do not want to see that on my dashboard. The same thing happened with “In your orbit”, Stop adding features that show me weird sonic fan art.
They updated again today, it's worse
Alfonzo Garbonzobean on 5/21/2018
More ads, more suggested posts... what a pile of feces this app has become in 24 hours. Horrid.
Love this app
BeeGreene on 5/21/2018
This app has been slowly getting better and better a couple of steps back here and there but then it’s counteracted with even better updates. My only issue is I use tumblr for one specific thing and I have to say I really hate seeing posts that I am not interested in and not something that I am following. Other than that this is great! Keep up the amazing work guys and gals!!!!
Burn your garbage algorithm.
McSnee on 5/21/2018
The recommendations are terrible. I am perfectly able to pick my own content.
k.<3:) on 5/21/2018
Hey Tumblr. Sooo I run a few different blogs of a few different styles and I’d love an easy way to switch between my 2 accounts. It’s obnoxious having to sign out all the time and they can not be combined under one email. Any chance we can get a system to have more than one? Thanks Much xoxo
Please get rid of recommendations
chasekel on 5/21/2018
The app works fine for me and I like tumblr but please allow us to remove the recommended posts- they have not gotten one right yet on things that might even remotely interest me and if I’m looking for more content I’ll search for it.
Terrible update
aberretta on 5/21/2018
The latest update really makes me want to delete the app. Why do I need to scroll through so many recommended posts before getting to the actual content I follow? It’s not even related to the types of blogs I usually follow. I understand needing to run ads but stop with these recommendations that make the app a chore to use. It’s just not enjoyable anymore.
Poor recommendations and no way to turn them off
stupid recommendations on 5/21/2018
App is fine but it’s very annoying to get completely unrelated “recommendations” for pages I should follow and ads every 3rd post or so.
ADs with more ADs
zenithangunn on 5/21/2018
The latest update makes your news feeds ADs and forcefully recommended blogs. So I’m the first few scrolls you don’t see anything of your content and instead marketed posts and suggested blogs. We get it, you’re harvesting our likes and interests to sell the metadata. Does it have to be so obvious??
Recommended = Ads
Larrieboi on 5/21/2018
So many “Ads” that are labeled as recommended and they aren’t even aligned to anything I follow or am interested in. Wish I could roll back.
nyuknowit2 on 5/21/2018
I just opened the app today & thought I wasn't logged in (based on alllllll these unrelated posts from accounts I don't subscribe to... before finally even getting to my subscriptions....then all through my feed. This is rediculous.
Too many recommendeds
Houjim on 5/21/2018
I’m finding too many “recommended” posts in my feed. The worst part is that it’s not stuff I’m at all interested in. Please back off on this feature next update!!
Dark mode
ty90's on 5/21/2018
Can you create create a dark mode for the app
