  • Data storage

    by Shorty29111

    First off, I love this app. I only have one problem. The app itself is 13.2 MB. I wouldn't expect it to need much more room after that After weeks of use, however, it stores 100s of MBs worth of data. Why would it need to do this? It just starts to take up what little room I have left on my phone. Please fix this issue.

    by Vaneyy

    I wish we could rotate & use it in wide view. This was created to kill boredom and turned into a bit of an obsession going on 3 years!

  • Tumblr is a great social media tool

    by Kloraven88

    This social media outlet is great for getting your message out there. I definitely recommend this to an artist who's trying to get themselves out there.

    by Something to complain about

    What up time to fix the activity tab nothing ever shows up unless I use the computer

  • Tumblr won't reply to emails

    by Mielikkki

    Keep saying my password was wrong, so I sent for a password reset and got nothing. I have emailed the support email, and got nothing also. Want to be able to use the app but it will not let me log in nor allow me to change my password.

  • Love it but..

    by Savvyphp

    I wish it had a customize theme button.

  • Awesome

    by Cautionfangirlland

    It's great, but it has a lot of mobile flaws. Still worth using though.

  • Gotta get used to it

    by Xaxous

    I'm new to it but so far it's pretty cool.

  • Ehh

    by A dreadful beauty

    For the most part a very good app. One problem is the activity page. I get the push notifications but the actual page acts like I've never had any activity.

  • Please fix crash issue

    by EmilyofTardis

    just to be clear, I love tumblr. But ever since this new update, my dash won't even load before the app crashes. Please fix!!!

  • Tumblr

    by PesidentRushing

    Tumblr is pretty fun if your into that kinda thing.

  • Awesome Overall

    by broseph11

    Overall, it's a great app. The only issue I currently have is that it has begun to take an exceptionally long time to load recently. Still, past that, it's a great app.

  • Confused?

    by Mrs. A. Bagtas

    Not really sure how to navigate the app. I've never used tumblr before but I was assuming it was similar to twitter, Facebook or Instagram. I was sorely mistaken.

  • Great for blogging on the go

    by Nora@uncover

    This app works just as I'd expect. Easy to use and lets me be mobile.

  • Good, but needs some improvement

    by Denebula

    Outbox folder, better message integration please

  • This is my life

    by BRONCOE24

    Tumblr is my life in a nutshell

  • Great app

    by T81DawG

  • Addictive

  • Good

    by VictoriaTerrell

  • Simple but Great

    by Pfannyyy

    Simple, easy way to share and view photos and gifs.

  • Better than most!

    by John Zajaros

    The app is easy to use & you don't have to sign in repeatedly. I wish it had a few more features, though. Overall, a great app!

  • New tumblr App

    by Rai Raia

    Overall it's great, I just hate that it doesn't load all the pics. That should be fixed by now. So annoying

  • Love it

    by Dakota20t

    I am so glad I can take my tumblr on the go with me. Amazing app. Although it is better on the computer it is still a great way to keep my blog updated on the go.

  • Crap.

    by Susan Greco

    It is slow. It doesn't let me log into my account sometimes, and I have to delete and then re download the app only to have it happen again a couple days later. Update it!! Wish there were HTML buttons for blockquotes and such because it is hard for people who don't know or understand HTML. Wish you could post audio & videos. Fix the problems. Please.

  • Horrible

    by CourtneyCait

    No matter how many times I update or even delete and download the app, I can never post pictures from ANY mobile device I've used. I can't get to my computer all of the time, so it'd be nice if this could be fixed. I'm not the only one who's had this problem- several people that I've spoken with have as well.

  • Likes❤️

    by Lov3p3ac3hop3

    I love Tumblr but whenever I tap on my likes, my page freezes and returns me to my home screen.

  • I am REALLY not happy right now!

    by Scarlet Seven

    Now when you check your tracked tags on the app it only shows the most popular posts! What is the point of that?! Ugh, what a pain...

  • Cool

    by D3byrd

    Follow me

  • It was pretty good until recently.

    by RandomZamboni

    I really liked the app, I used to be on it all the time, but now, I can't view my own blog without it crashing.

  • Tumblr

    by DHeezyBabii

    Pretty sweet app. I love Tumblr and mostly prefer this app over using my laptop.

  • Great app, but..

    by PunkiKitty199

    The app its self is wonderful...once you get logged in. After the recent update, there is a glitch making it difficult to sign in.

  • Great!!

    by Aniraksoir20

    So awesome !

  • Forced closed

    by Forced closed

    I love this app, it usually works great but after the recent update, it won't stay open for more then 10 seconds. It looks like it is going to load but after a few seconds it force closes. Please fix!

  • Tumblr

    by pitbull1016

    I have been on tumblr for a little while and i am impressed with its wide variety and rang of things to see and read about of all interest. I give them 5 stars

  • Great but...

    by Jacordan

    Within Tumblr itself, the messaging should be updated. BAD.


    by Bubblesama

    It won't let me post any gifs. It just stays frozen. PLEASE FIX!! ):

  • Awesome

    by Taywas4554

    I love this app

  • Poo

    by @kelly_420

    I hate how you can't scroll down on your likes. You get about two loads and it stops.

  • meh

    by Random Gal Here......

    I love tumblr itself but the activity page never works (and I know my followers are active). I just wish I didn't have to turn on my computer to see that, as that's what I was avoiding by downloading the app in the first place(?).

  • Bugs

    by Jchchstiiv

    The app would constantly freeze and close down on its own and I cannot access my likes at all with out the app freezing for about a whole minute and then kicking me out. (I've not had this problem with any other app)

  • I don't give compliments readily ...

    by Allyouknead

    However having Tumblr has inspired me in many many ways. There is so much people have to offer and share many of these if not most are inspiring.

  • tumblr rating

    by Abbyslayer ^.^

    This is my favorite freaking app. I use it everyday, it's the only one on my screen everything else is in a box. it's amazing. Your blog becomes everything you like and other people enjoy your stuff and tell you they love it. it's just awesome. Get it of you don't have it. It's had any topic of pictures you want to see.

  • Works great!

    by Mr_Jabberw0cky

    I have no problems with this app. It has been running quite smoothly so far.

  • Can't find my granddaughter's site on tumblr

    by Maxthecoton

    Tumblr makes me feel OLD! And I am. You are not user friendly.

  • A portable treat!

    by The Unfathomable B!

    Throughout my day I check tumblr on my phone for pics and interesting bits of info that give me little bits of joy throughout the day. B!

  • I love Tumblr!

    by Ibriy

    Excellent way to waste time!

  • Loooooooovvvvvve.....

    by Maxxdadd613


  • Cool

    by Luxjur


  • Takes too much space

    by Harm0ny89

    For an app that take awhile to load pictures, it sure caches a lot. Tumblr is only 13MBs but it caches 230MBs. No option to clear the cache.

  • Almost right

    by Jessyojessy

    Ever since the latest update my notifications no activity have stopped being updated. It's not too much of a problem, but it is definitely annoying.

  • Cool app

    by Blurabbit Studios

    I like

  • Love it

    by ObeyRickyLove

    I use this app about 70% of the time

  • Tumblr app

    by Levi Krusza

    It's pretty neat.

  • Tumblrholic

    by TVYLOR

    I'm on there quite frequently, most of the time from this app. There are a few things here and there that are missing which would make our lives easier if included in the app, but overall, it's pretty great. What I want is a way to favorite blogs so we can go directly to those without having to scroll our never ending dash or trying to remember which blog we saw what on.

  • Very Solid

    by Optimistic Prime

    I use this app almost as often as I do the browser version. It takes a little getting used to but everything you need to browse Tumblr on the go seems to be here.

  • Hello!

    by Salyacc

    I've always loved Tumblr. I don't spend too much time on the app though. I enjoy it full screen on my laptop!

  • an outlet

    by Latina kitsune

    This is a good place to put all of mixed emotions into tangible words. I don't need it to be fancy for a mobile app--that's what a PC is for. just need it to be quick and accessible on the go when I have a though or feeling. (Follow ayitaituhathunderbird that's me folks!)

  • Fun

    by Jkstamey

    Loves it!!

  • great app

    by marksmind

    great app and I'm always finding new stuff

  • Lag and Crashes

    by CharlieM98

    So with this new update, mobile blogging has become a bane for me. It's difficult liking and reblogging from the app, and lag when typing messages and tags has been a huge hassle. Performance pre-update has been satisfactory, but things have been terrible as new bugs may have sprung up. I know my iPhone 4S isn't the problem, other apps work perfectly well, and it was working absolutely fine before. What's wrong?

  • The app keeps crashing on me

    by sogstrist

    Every time I try to make a post or upload a photo through the tumblr app, it keeps crashing. Don't know if it's my phone but it's most likely the app. I have to click fast in order to upload anything before it crashes. It's annoying! Hopefully the programmers can fix the app.

  • I like it

    by Jxdillon

    Still figuring it out but I enjoy the app as of now.

  • Cool

    by Simply_Sydney00

    I for one like it a lot

  • by MelissaLaFlare

    Love the app , it has so many interesting things on it !!!!!

  • Slow start

    by 1step@atime

    I have to agree with some of the comments I've read. I love tumblr and I love having the app on my phone but I've afforded using it lately because it's been so slow loading. Not sure if it's my phone or the app. I hope it's something that can be fixed!
