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?

Any chance you guys could show the tiniest amount of professionalism and not be complete idiots about the changelogs? I know it's boring if all you can put there is "bug fixes and performance improvements" all the time, but if that's what it is, then that's what it is. Nothing wrong with wanting to make it funny, but it still should be informative. There are ways to achieve both, try looking at Discord for example if you need inspiration. Full Review

Yo Tumblr idk what happened but ever since the last update I have to restart the app sometimes when I want to refresh my activity page & don't tell me it's network connectivity problems! Cause you guys are the only ones with slow loading times. It's baadddddddd. It doesn't stop me from using the app, it's just an inconvenience Full Review

Ability to download pictures is broken 90% of the time. Images save as random guids that are different from their web filenames. The images themselves are inexplicably a fraction of the size of their desktop versions. UI placement isn't customisable. Annoying ad placement. I would genuinely pay to see these issues fixed. Full Review

Ever since the last update, I haven't been able to save gifs to my phone. I'll click "download photo" but nothing saves. It's really annoying. I thought this new update would fix the problem. It didn't. Please figure out a way to fix this. Full Review

Instead of listening to the sites suggestions of fixing the app and getting rid of the grossly large amount of porn bots, neo nazis, and literal pedophiles, they decide to roll out features literally no one wants and doesn't attempt to fix whatever is making their site crash. Literally the only thing keeping me on this godforsaken social media is all the hilarious posts. In short just use the mobile browser and lurk on there, and pray staff doesn't do anything to mess that up too Full Review

What happened? My network so good, but these last weeks I cannot view anything with this app. This app said my network FLAKED OUT or LOW CONNECTION although in same time I can download fastly or update my apps. Full Review
Jessa Petrichor Published date: October 20, 2017
I really like the app, but with the latest update I no longer receive vibration notifications when I receive messages on my account. I rely on these vibrations since I rarely turn my phone sound on, so losing that capability makes it really difficult for me to use the app Full Review

I'm considering moving on to less problematic apps if this keeps up... Full Review

I want to change the view of my activity page back to the way it was. I want to be able to tell the order in which things happen not this grouping together of everything. And why are some of the blog profile pics on my activity page pixelated when my safe filters are turned off? Full Review

The app is a mess, barely functional. Slows relatively new, high-end phone to a crawl, for no reason, doesn't let me see images. Full Review

The latest update lets you have stuff you might like or are popular first in your dashboard just like facebook because everyone loved that. In theory. In reality however your dashboard blocks after like a handful of posts and you can't scroll down anymore. If you go to your blog (bottom right corner) then to setting (top right corner) you can click the dashboard preferences and deactivate this new feature to have a chance to actually check out your dashboard.

Someone please tell me if there's a way to turn off the annoying "look who's posting again" notifications? I have already manually checked the specific people who's posts I don't want to miss; that's it, I DON'T NEED YOUR EXTRA RANDOM ANNOYING NOTIFICATIONS THAT I HAVEN'T SIGNED UP FOR. I'm following a ton of tumblogs, and each day I'll get several random notifications from tumblr that I don't want. They just looks like constant spam! Full Review
