Thanks for choosing Tumblr, a place to connect with others over shared interests. Sometimes we update the app to squash bugs and speed things up.

And sometimes we drop in a new and improved image cacher to bring you what you love faster than before.

Don't forget to follow [@staff] for updates, feature announcements, and a heck of a lot of fun.


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.

— Post photos, GIFs, text, videos, live videos, audio, anything.
— Make your own GIFs. Cover them in stickers and text, if you like.

— 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.

— 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.

pleasd just add trimming
ancillula on 8/18/2018
As someone who has a roleplay blog, it is vitally important to be able to trim done posts, which as of right now, you can only do on a computer, which I do not have. So please add a trimming feature.
Good app
Treehugger13lmao on 8/18/2018
Good app for users that have had accounts for years to access quickly
Linking links!!!!
So f***ing amazing! on 8/18/2018
This app is truly amazing really, it’s the linking problem that I’m having trouble with. I’ve never had this problem before, I’ve locked out and then back in 4 times around yet it still won’t let me link the first fic I wrote to my second one which is honestly annoying.
No emoji655576 on 8/18/2018
I DONT LIKE THEM!! I DONT LIKE A SINGLE ONE. Also, tumblr keeps recommending posts that have blacklisted tags!! So I can’t even see them!!! So what’s the point??? Tumblr literally recommends me posts from people that I have BLOCKED and won’t let me get rid of them.
Great App!
SeiyuuLover on 8/18/2018
I love using tumblr app!
Honestly... this app is atrocious
wolfgangpnw on 8/18/2018
This app is pitiful. It barely runs, regularly freezes or glitches out, and has massive issues with the messaging system. This would be understandable given the size of the site and network if functionality were the only issue but it’s not. Customer service is completely non existent, and approximately 40% of my dashboard is taken up by advertising and “recommended posts”, none of which are ever relevant to the content of my blog and the majority of which are just not interesting in any way. The terrible, extremely annoying, and incredibly intrusive recommended posts combined with the atrocious functionality are absolutely killing tumblr’s mobile community.
dezyjade on 8/18/2018
It’s keeps crashing! It lasts at most 5 seconds then crashes! 🤦‍♀️
Fix the asks please
uuuhhhgggggugh on 8/18/2018
First off I would Love for my asks to send it seems like one out of every three I send actually make it through which is my biggest problem honestly the app also stops loading pictures randomly and crashes from time to time which is annoying
Lucyenqi on 8/18/2018
I like it
Lost of adds
turtleboi200 on 8/18/2018
It was fine until like a week after I got it and it just started giving me adds. I would scroll down a little bit and there were two adds it is very annoying to so many adds. Otherwise I love the add it runs smoothly and I works without WiFi (yay) that is helpful when you are on the run all the time. It is a lot of fun you can post stuff. But 1 thing about it is a lot of people who do tumblr try to commit suicide (sorry for my bad spelling) and it is sad so people have been putting up antisuicide (spelling again sorry) on that I am 1 of these people so if you do tumblr please don’t commit suicide. Overall I love this app but not the adds and people who try to commit suicide.
Recommended posts are ruining the App
buddy guy 10000 on 8/18/2018
Easily 30% of the content I see on this app is posts from pages I do not follow and have no interest in called “recommended” posts. There is no way to turn this feature off from what I can tell. I hate this so called feature. This needs to be removed or a way to turn it off needs to be added ASAP!
Your Space

It’s the perfect platform for anything you wanna do poetry cooking fitness there’s a community for it all. Find what you love and then fall in love with new things everyday
rosssssses on 8/18/2018
I wish you could delete hashtags when you go to your profile on the search bar. It bothers me lol -Ones that you click on that show no content because you haven’t had used that hashtag in years , or you deleted the post with the tag. Other than that, I love tumblr
ninibabyboo on 8/17/2018
amazing app
My Favorite App to Be On
Lil' MissSunShine on 8/17/2018
It is addicting and so much fun to be around people who love the same things as you!
Please Fixed to allow screen rotation
Eric5356 on 8/17/2018
Only thing I don’t like and it’s a big one for me is that the screen will not rotate so for instance if I’m casting it I can only look at it in the one viewing mode. Please adjust it so it will rotate or if there is a way that I have yet to find let me know thank you
chrishutchins3 on 8/17/2018
Tumblr now has “recommended” posts. They are not people I follow, yet they take up over half of my dashboard. There is no way to turn it off! It’s always the same few posts over and over again. You can delete them, but it is just replaced by another. They need to put in the option to turn off recommended
a*s sauce app
ihatestaff on 8/17/2018
this app is terrible, runs horribly, god dammit staff, fix your sh*t
Sign up for tumblr
t143341 on 8/17/2018
I’m trying to sign up for tumblr but it won’t allow me to. Please help and fix this!!!!! This is very bad!
From bad to worse
Flannegan on 8/17/2018
Tumblr has had app crashing problems for as long as I can remember, but it is totally out of hand. The recommended posts make it impossible to scroll through uncluttered content of folks you actually want to follow, and the activity feed is glitchy as best. I came back to the app after a year hiatus, and I’m starting to think I should just delete it for good.
App shows me posts from blogs I don’t follow
gabe2999 on 8/17/2018
I really hate how it shows random posts from random blogs I don’t follow, I’m not interested in pretty much everything it shows.
samantha A cruz on 8/17/2018
The app keeps crashing after like a few minutes of being on, it wasn’t really a problem before, but now that it continues to crash, it starts to really bother and frustrate me.
Used to be great. But now.....
Rmccotten on 8/17/2018
There is a setting to turn of suggested posts, it does not work. About 30% or more of the things that I see are not things that I am interested in. FIX IT
Great fun

Pedophiles and Pornbots
Ghjekdkd on 8/17/2018
Tumblr refuses to delete harmful content/users, there’s a lot of pedophiles on tumblr that are actively preying on children irl and children that use tumblrs. Someone I followed reblogged a video of a man raping his daughter. This is sick and I have no way of reporting the video/user. The only thing I can do is block people that post stuff like that. Same goes for pornbot accounts. They will reblog your original content and add links to random porn sites/viruses. I posted selfies for my birthday which I later deleted because a particular pornbot account continually reblogged the post adding their own links and comments to my pictures. I wish I could rate this app zero stars. I’ve had a tumblr account for 6 years and these have both been consistent problems that the staff has ignored. It’s disgusting
porn-bot accounts
photoloozer on 8/17/2018
i've been using tumblr probably since 2013 and for the past 2 years there's been an abundance of porn-bot accounts on the site. at least once a day i get a notification that a porn-bot account has followed me. it's incredibly annoying and gross. please fix this.
jessica0573 on 8/17/2018
Why so many ads of people or pages that I care nothing about following. Put it back to the way it was
Little Tommy D. on 8/17/2018
Love the app but notifications received with recommendations will not direct you to the recommended Posting. Frustrating!
BreSauce on 8/17/2018
I’m loving the new updates, it’s sooo nice to work with on my phone and computer.
I dig it
MrsDiFelice2013 on 8/17/2018
I do like the app but just wish it would let me have more capabilities like the actual website. Other than that I love my tumblr blog. I post all my secret fantasies there & it’s a porn mecca who wouldn’t enjoy scrolling through. ;)
Get rid of Pornography!
TheWizard9B on 8/17/2018
This app is pretty cool to use and function okay not perfect but ok! Now I’m about to uninstall this app because after about 3 hours of creating my account I had 3 followers follow me. Went to there page and porn!!! Figures!! Like wow. This would be a good blogging app but why have porn. I’ve seen naked woman clearly visible but a photo of the ocean was filtered by safe mode but the woman wasn’t?? It’s getting frustrating that most post that are just fine to view are filtered but provocative photos aren’t filtered? I thank they should do a ban for people posting straight porn to a blog! I wouldn’t let my 15 year old use this app that’s for sure!
The best app
Hama134 on 8/17/2018
The most beautiful app I’ve ever seen
bubidabub on 8/17/2018
I’m enjoying this app!
App stinks
dirt empress on 8/16/2018
Just redownloaded it for at least the tenth time since I made a Tumblr account, each time because the app stopped working. Please use desktop Tumblr if you respect yourself, and if you love yourself at all, you should just stick to Twitter.
kweed98 on 8/16/2018
Loved this since I was a kid ❤️ the best
Solid app, ruined by spam
anony minus on 8/16/2018
Recommended post nonsense takes up more of my feed than the things I actually follow and can't be turned off.
Love the app but..
I usually don’t have problems with Tumblr but it has been crashing for the past couple days :(
MYokes on 8/16/2018
If u r me which is an extreme cheapskate then then u should not get this app. All it shows is a disturbing black and white picture of weird old man in a grumpy bear care bear onesie. IT SCARRED ME FOR LIFE! And guess what buddy, don’t even bother checking out eBay for the care bear onesie with the whopping price of $114.58. On the other hand I would recommend a shady website called bonazasbz.com. Clearly I don’t look like a person that would spend over $49.99 for a funshine bear costume. I would like to improvise and use my creativity as a gift because I was gifted with creativity, a natural beauty. Below I shall provide u with the step by step diy way of making a care bear onesie. 1. First pull a onesie out of your closet 2. Get paint from Lowe’s, Home Depot or your local paint store 3.then then use your helpful friend named google and look up care bear pictures as a reference for your onesie 4.i would next print out a picture of my personal favorite funshine bears logo and glue it using a sturdy glue on the tummy of your onesie 5. Let it dry and soon your onesie will be as good as the $114.58 one from eBay You are welcome for writing this fantastic review and if you need any more helpful information about care bear onesies please contact me. Oh and my name is Kendall Devine.👵🍌
Hdidifidbg on 8/16/2018
These “recommended” post are getting out of hand, I want them off. App is super slow compared to what it used to be scroll through for a few post and then it gets really slow and sometimes closes itself. When issues get fixed 5 stars.

10/10 just for the great jokes, laughs and anything else you can imagine. :D
Recommendation spam
Mar.b on 8/16/2018
Do you feel annoyed by recommended posts cluttering Tumblr? Flag all recommendations as inappropriate! It’s the only way of showing them that the community ain’t happy with this spam.
Still crashes
Fresh Haus on 8/16/2018
Keeps crashing, all this time and still not a stable app. YouTube has never crashed on me for the record and that site is all video.
Dilu Rai on 8/16/2018
Actually i didn’t like this big bugs ! But I am trying this time if the app is improved! Otherwise it is not user friendly! Even I make 5 stars only for laughing!!!!
Tonylow34 on 8/16/2018
The only thing I don’t like is you have to download a separate app to download videos
Half of feed is now sponsored/unfollowed content
Brian Witte on 8/16/2018
A recent change of filling my dash with tons of tumblrs I don’t follow and sponsored content has my one of my favorite apps become one I’m ready to delete. Please, at least provide an option in settings to opt out of seeing tons of unfollowed content on the dash!
Profile Bug
Bre7736195 on 8/16/2018
I love Tumblr and use it all the time. However, whenever I’m in the app and click on the profile icon, the app crashes. I tried to exit the app and try again, but no luck. I hope this can be fixed and thank you for your time.
Terrible terrible terrible app
florskid on 8/16/2018
Why is this app so bad?? Why are there more recommended posts on my feed than actual posts I follow?? And no way to turn them off. Truly idiotic
Thrive Market on 8/16/2018
A good app, but I having an issue with some of its features.
PusheenLover679 on 8/16/2018
I love this app! I personally use it for my study account and to stalk StudyBlr accounts on the site! I absolutely love it! Can get lost in it for hours!! I don’t see why people have a problem with it 💓
You Still Haven’t Fixed This!
Fulcrum Rex on 8/16/2018
Why can’t you make your secondary blog your primary? Seriously. One of my most popular blogs is a secondary blog. Every time I leave a like on a post or leave a comment, it says that the post was left by my primary, so none of my fans actually know who I am! None of them recognize my primary, because I don’t post anything there! Why hasn’t Tumblr fixed this yet? Yes, I know there are tutorials that can help you get around this problem, but those are all way too complicated and they also risk you losing all of your content. I don’t want to risk that. It would be much easier if Tumblr would just make some changes in the settings that would allow you to change your secondary blog into a primary. PLEASE FIX THIS TUMBLR. For all our sakes!
