Tumblr Android App Gets Massive Updates

by On August 31, 2011

Are you using Tumblr? If you’re like me who still maintains a Tumblr account, you’ll be glad to know that the Android app has just been updated. And it’s not just a minor update but a huge one, including a completely new interface plus some other new features that will make you use the Tumblr Android app more. I have the Tumblr app on my iPhone as well and comparing so now, with the Android app update, the two apps are almost identical as compare to the previous version of the Android app which was inferior to the iPhone version. One major new feature of the app aside from the newly re-designed interface centered around the Android’s hardware and software is the ability to manage multiple blogs. This can be done easily through swipe gestures which lets you access your different blogs, manage drafts, queue and followers on-the-go. I also appreciate the new feature that lets you post anything from your Android phone’s home screen via the Tumblr widget which you can install on the home screen. The change log for the Tumblr Android app is as follows:

  • 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.
Tumblr Android app is available now as a free download from the Android Market.
