There are so many BUGS! 3/5
Hey, Tumblr, LISTEN TO YOUR REVIEWERS! There are so many bugs, the app slows down and freezes, etc etc.
I updated my profile picture on my laptop using the desktop version of tumblr. These updates NEVER show up on my phone. NEV-ER. I’m not exaggerating, I’ve had the same profile picture on mobile for weeks now, when I literally have changed my pfp on the desktop version 3 TIMES. It’s annoying.
Mo bugs 5/5
Lately the app has been locking up and not letting me out whlie viewing a video or clip. I seem to notice more bugs whenever you fix bugs.
Fun app 4/5
Easy to use...and fun.
Life saver 5/5
Download this maybe you'll find yourself
New Version, Same Horrible App 1/5
Doesn’t matter how many bugs they “fix”, this app is next to uninsurable. Save yourself the headache when they shut down in a year and find another website/app to be creative on
I just can't with the updates. 2/5
They fix things that don't need to be fixed and the old bugs are still there making more annoying to navigate this app. The previous problem I had with my description not showing the text I write didn't get resolved. Now I can't even search with a keyword. It says that the word is not correct. Lets discuss the app color too. It's way to dark and hideous, the color choice is not the right one.
Tumblr Staff, sincerely you are losing my respect.
I really don't want to be on this app anymore.
OMG I LOVE THE NEW COLOR 5/5
At first I was like is that blue and I was like well it’s probably just a darker blue than before but omg it’s black and I’m here for it
Videos aren't working in new update 3/5
By ellysa fosho(;
As stated in the title, videos will not play. Also the new color of the icon is disappointing.
Would be better if it worked properly 2/5
By Concerned Tumblr-er
I used to have a tumblr and use it religiously. Especially after post break-up fiascos and the overall dramatic teenage years. Over time, I simply forgot about it. I redone loaded the app and it’s been a complete pain. I love the aesthetic aspects, but even though my internet is completely fine, the app has that dreaded gray bar that reads “it did not work”. What did not work tumblr?
This happens on my data and my wifi. I get a maximum of 4 posts. I have no newsfeed to scroll through.
I love tumblr. But in order to love tumblr, I need to be able to scroll through tumblr.
Also, since I decided I wanted to start afresh with a new blog, I attempted to make a new account. The app would not allow me to do so. When I plugged in my age, it said to press the “next” button to accept the terms and conditions. I did as I was told, and needless to say, it didn’t work. I resulted to the old fashioned way of making an account through safari instead of through the app.
I love tumblr. Truly. Im just not satisfied at with this app.
The worst ever 1/5
By Blue Skye
Yeah, so suddenly the app would stop loading crucial parts of their platform, like the stupid repost options??? Buttons wouldnt work, I couldn’t find my likes/follows list, and every time I’d refresh, a stupid notification to log out and sign back in would pop up. Finally even after downloading the new update, I caved and logged out to log in. Now it won’t even do that. This app is useless. Forget tumblr, it’s been turned to the stupidest app ever since yahoo bought into it.
First-time Tumblr user here. The app has a lot of room for improvement. 1/5
Update: Dec 2017. The app is completely unreliable. I spent an hour creating a post only for it all to be lost upon submission. If the Create Post screen is open for more than a few minutes or if you switch apps, you’ll lose everything. Absolutely infuriating.
- Lacking valuable text options available on the website, such as line breaks or the "read more" option
- Does not include a website preview when posting a link
- Press and hold to drag the cursor. This causes the page to scroll wildly. Cannot edit text.
- Gives me raw HTML to edit. You expect me to edit a post's raw code just to update the post? I like the option to edit raw HTML but this should not be default.
- Zero rich text editing.
- If I don't restart the app after changing style then it will revert.
- The background photo won't always update immediately, an app restart is required for it to look as it's set.
I go to find a jungkook gif and the app crashes, I waste 5 minutes of my time and I have no jungkook.
Cool beans 4/5
Really nice app!! Been using it since 2012.
LISTEN TO COMMUNITY!!! 1/5
This app has potential to be the best but you, Tumblr don’t listen and make it a harder experience for us.
Listen to community and change!!!
It's great. 5/5
I don't really know how to write reviews (it's not something I'm really good at, rip), but I guess all I have to say is that it's a really amazing app and social media platform. I would definitely recommend the app to my friends if I hadn't already.
messenger feature broken 1/5
new update wont let you send posts via messenger, which was one of the main reasons i used this app anymore
Bug fix 2/5
For the past week I have not been able to log into the tumblr app when my password & email are both correct, though I have been able to log in on my laptop.
Audio files don’t play 2/5
I mean seriously. When I click on an audio file I have no way to fast forward or reverse. For that matter I literally can’t hear anything. At all. There’s a bar the moves (sometimes) as if something is supposed to be playing...except you can’t hear anything. Very frustrating. Not so sure I want to keep this app.
“Bug fixes” 1/5
By Darth Mudkip
They keep saying they fix the bugs but I still can’t have photos load in a decent amount of time
Just bad 1/5
This app is terrible and I haven’t been able to log in despite changing my password SEVERAL times.
Crash Master 1/5
This new update is loaded with ads and crashes.
If you like being force fed apps and constant relaunching of the app, then this is the version for you.
All the quality that we have grown to expect from Yahoo
Did I mention that it crashes??? 😳
It's just... Broken 1/5
Incredibly broken more and more with each 'update'. Keeps telling me to log back out and then in. Despite me already doing that, when it doesn't crash and sign my out forcefully.
Color change. 4/5
Good thing they changed the color of the app icon. So many people were complaining about how it was just a few shades too light.
It’s good so far nothing wrong is happening
Tumblr probs 1/5
It won’t let me log in and when i can it has trouble reloading.
Crashes constantly 1/5
Every time I refresh my page or go to look at my notifications it crashes and the app closes. Annoying as hell
By True Hetalian
A world full of crazed feminists, fandom cancer, lefties, and more. An experience you won’t get on any other social media.
Hmmm...try again 1/5
By Andrew Mos
All I get is hmm.. try again, logging out and in, no luck same issue
How do you continue to have such epic design fails! 1/5
Current version crashes everytime I try to open a blog I am following.
I've never seen a company so adept at repeating the same design fails over and over again.
You've made it so we have to identfy which of our blogs we wish to search insread of the blog we are currently in.
You've buried logout under gear icon
You've made more steps to get to updates for blogs we're following, and made it so we have to start typing the name of the blog instead of searching alphabetically.
Whomever is doing your UI design has no clue! Fix it! The UI should be simple, easy to navigate, and be intuitive.
nothing gets fixed 1/5
how hard is it to hire people that can actually code? this app is way more buggy than it used to be. tumblr just seems to be getting worse.
By Ag econ dude
The main thing these folks need to work on is decreasing the storage space the app takes up. After a minute or two of browsing images stop loading and the app slows down, and occasionally crashes. Redownloading does not fix the issue, nor is it a problem due to lack of space on my phone itself. Stick with the browser.
New controls over images ruin the experience 1/5
The whole point of clicking on an image is to view the entire native image. What kind of idiot thought it was a good idea to stick the like and share options over the top of the image when you click on it? You just completely ruined this app.
FIX YOUR APP! 1/5
By Tee Baby❤️
Tumblr is really great and all, but you guys really need to fix all these bugs..my app is crashing nonstop, and it’s really annoying.
excuse me 3/5
you say you fixed bugs, but the bug that makes certain posts be labeled as sensitive content is still there? idk, the entire sensitive content thing seems like a HUGE bug, but as we can see, it remains unfixed. please be useful and fix it for once.
Crashes often 3/5
It’s a good app to have tumblr on the go but it crashes way too often for my liking.
Also I haven’t been able to see past 2 entries on my activity for the past 3 months. It’s just empty and then it doesn’t load.
I’m not sure if that was just me or what, but QA needs to be a little more vigorous in my opinion. I still use the app too often to delete it, but please improve my user experience!!
Make the queue easier from the app
I think the messaging takes too long to refresh. I’ll often click on X user’s message and then be reading a message from Y user; and from there, if i respond to Y, X user will be frozen at the top (most recent) even if i haven’t responded to X. I also think the “active in the last xx hours” should exceed at 2 hours.
Crashes Nonstop 1/5
By Thunder Star 1
I can't even log in with it constantly crashing! I've tried deleting and reinstalling it, resetting my phone and nothing works! Tumblr Staff your better then this! Fix it!
PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK 1/5
why would you get rid of viewing following by alphabetical order? every update makes it worse. i’m lucky if ten posts will load and then the whole app just freezes up. can’t stand how they obviously don’t care
WHY WOULD YOU CHANGE THE COLOR OF THE APP !? THE DARKER COLOR IS LITERALLY JUST SO BAD IT MAKES MY SCREEN LOOK HORRID. THE LIGHT BLUE WAS SO NICE. SEITCH IT BACK. CMON. UGH.
Completely usable right now. 1/5
App keeps glitching saying it’s not working and to log out and hen back in. Does it every time and sometimes multiple times while using app. Finally to the point the app won’t work period.
FIX THE DESCRIPTION BOXES I CANT SEE ALL OF THE INFO DUDE FIX IT
I love tumblr. 4/5
My only problem is the out of the blue glitches and the gay porn. I’m straight and don’t wanna see that stuff. I’m not homophobic & I don’t mind the regular porn but I just don’t wanna see the gay stuff. Great app otherwise.
Tumblr Is Good 5/5
By Jesus Christ Jr
I Love Tumblr And Good Quailty
great app but keeps crashing 3/5
i love to use the tumblr app to follow and keep up with my favorite blogs but after new update the app often crashes. It’s become quite the annoyance and it always disrupts my small reading sessions within the app
Why they change the icon to be a little darker
WHY is the BLUE diFFEERREEENNNTTTT STOOOOOOOOPPPPP ChanGE IT BACK
Gray bar saying hmm try again?!?!?! 1/5
I keep getting a gray bar telling me that hmm try again and to log out and log back in...it’s been doing that every time I open the app! It’s been a problem for over a month!!! I will log out and back in...sometimes it’s works sometimes it does not...and if I leave the app...I most do the same thing again! Very annoying and truly unusable! Fix the problem
Tried to download this and the first time it downloaded linkeden instead nice click bait
new update 1/5
No bugs were fixed and the performance has not, in fact, improved.
