Tumblr Receives a Much Needed Android Overhaul – New UI, Multi-Blog Support and More

Any Tumblr users in the building?  As a user of the service, I’m actually excited to see that their team has released a major update to version 2.0.  The previous version was not the most fluid of apps and also had a variety of annoying bugs that seemed to get ignored.  In this latest build, users will enjoy a redesigned UI along with the ability to manage multiple blogs, messages and an address book all without leaving the app.

  • New interface: A total redesign centered around Android’s hardware and software.
  • Manage multiple blogs: It’s now a simple swipe to access your different blogs and manage your drafts, queue and followers on-the-go.
  • Create a post:  We’ve highlighted posting to Tumblr so you can share text, images, links, chats, quotes and videos whenever you want.
  • Messages: View and reply to messages for each of your blogs.
  • Address book: Find people to follow from your phone’s address book.
  • New users: Sign up right from the app.
  • Bonus: For quick sharing, you can post anything from your home screen via the Tumblr widget.

Know of any Tumblr accounts we should add to our list of daily reads?

    There has been a huge string of new apps coming out that the new market says is incompatible with my DroidX. This is total BS!

    I’ve been waiting on a major update of the official Tumblr app for quite some time. The last time I used the app was months ago and I couldn’t stand it. I downloaded a third-party Tumblr app called My Tumblr Free(I think) and it seems to work, although there are a few crashes here and there.

    Before that though and for awhile, I’ve been using the mobile web version of Tumblr because it seemed a lot better, quicker, and no crashes, etc.

    But finally, this major overhaul of the Tumblr app is just what I’ve needed for my daily Tumblr activities…and the best part is, the app now actually works!

  • I’m writing to make you understand what a excellent experience my cousin’s child found going through your web page. She mastered such a lot of pieces, which included what it’s like to have an ideal helping mood to let men and women without problems learn about selected tortuous matters. You really did more than her expectations. I appreciate you for distributing those powerful, trusted, revealing as well as unique tips about that topic to Ethel.

    I still feel like it’s nothing more than a shell for the mobile site. Yes, the updated UI is nice and all but I still feel that MyTumblr is a much better app.

  • Sweet, I’ll have to check it out so I can post venn diagrams on the go 🙂 http://venndiagrams.tumblr.com/

  • Just started dubstepnotbrostep.tumblr.com because the America needs more good Dubstep.
