Tumblr For Android Updated, Brings Support For Tablets

The official Tumblr for Android application was updated this morning, which brings full tablet support and a new Following screen. If you haven’t updated yet, go get on that.

I haven’t been much into Tumblr, but if the above thumbnails are any indication as to what I might be missing, I think I’m going to go sign up right now. For those who don’t know, Tumblr is another sharing site, where users can post pretty much anything. Videos, pictures, text, or anything else you might want to share with your followers.

Maybe I will just stick to Instagram for now.

    Kinda disappointed that there’s no landscape mode…looks like it was made for smaller tablets like the Nexus 7.

      I have been saying this forever. On android phones when I swipe down from the top the timeline will freeze and I have to re enter. I thought they would have corrected this by now.

    This update borked the ability to scroll through consecutive posts by a single author after clicking on an image for me. I reverted back to previous on my GNex.

    I have waited such a long time for this news. But I was tired of waiting for them devs to finally update the Tumblr app with Tablet support so I went ahead and side-loaded the Tumblr APK to my Nexus 7 about a week ago. It worked great.

    You mean the Instagram that updated their ToS today to allow the company to sell your photos past Jan 16th? Noooo thanks.

      Yep, I have. Am I worried about Facebook trying to squeeze every penny out of a 1 billion dollar investment? No, not at all.

        You want my pictures?? Three dollars!!

      That won’t last for long. Once they start losing users by the boat load, they’ll have no choice but to revert back to the original policy(where they cannot sell users’ photos without notice or payment).

      That is pretty f’d up though. BS.
