Every time I want to use it I have to delete and re download it
Only Ads 1/5
Latest update shows only advertisements. Can't see what you follow.
Just tried to re-install and re-launch. Once you sign in, all that comes up is an ad which you can't dismiss or get past. So, I have deleted again and am using Safari. However, that approach is difficult because the website keeps insisting that you download the IPAD app.
Why aren’t I getting any notification from my secondary accounts since I updated!! It’s annoying & I’ve already turned notifications on from both the app and on my general controls >:(
By Kassie Rouxel
My in-app notifications are all messed up. I know you're working on an update but please fix it asap
Notifications don’t appear sometimes 2/5
I see the push notification that someone liked or reblogged something from me, but they don’t appear at all on my activity page. They don’t even show up on the desktop version. And I know they reblogged/liked since I see the post on their page. Also sometimes I don’t see a push notification and/or activity notification when blogs who follow me does do this.
The Curse of the Unknown Error 4/5
By CKD (Invite code NBMKPZebq0)
Look, I love Tumblr. I love the communities I’ve found there. But is there a way to report problems directly to the staff without creating a new post and @-ing them? When I go to reblog something, my keyboard won’t pop up. It’s just a white expanse. When I tap on where the text should go, it twitches up for half a second then disappears. So I save it as a draft and restart the app. When I go to the draft I can type again, but when I click to post it “An unknown error has occurred”? What the heck?!? Very frustrated.
What the crap 1/5
It opens for like 3 seconds then closes, it NEVER refreshes my activity, it's so slow, PLEASE fix this. I love Tumblr and NEED it to work lol. this has been going on forever and my activity/notifications only refresh if i use my mac. but it’s more convenient to use my phone. pleasssssse update.
By Rani Bow
everything about this website’s coding is horrible, from the constant glitches (like messages not showing up even though I get notifications for them, my dashboard being completely blank, screen freezes.... and more) and the...... awfully weird ads I get. at least there’s good memes though.. but other than that everything is coded really really badly
Please cmon bois 2/5
By Jags ms
Tumblr, please, I care about you. But pleaseeee come out with a decent update and revamp the app. Take ideas from Instagram and Twitter, deviate from the website format (since apps an websites have different behavioral and user interactivity). Please make this app cohesive and come out with an update that makes things easier to search and user friendly. Maybe try things like being able to add a couple blog types to each blog, so you can search for blog types rather than solely by tags on posts (since many get spammed with irrelevant tags). Or perhaps improve on the "discovery" section to build and promote new posts making a large amount of notes for the day, etc. Thank ya, appreciate ya tumblr but please improve. Your customer loyalty is falling hard with your user base friendos. Lotsa people are using tumblr as a means to grow their Instagram followings mate. I don't want tumblr to become devoured
I think it’s not worth it! 1/5
By Mary 32 10
If I’m going to get a bogging app, I should be able to blog with or without internet. I understand there have to be rules and punishment if not followed. At least give people a chance
Is this a joke? 2/5
This isn't "the perfect app," far from it! About twice a week I have to delete it and redownload it because it will not open, it just crashes instead. Apparently, I'm not the only one having this problem. Fix your app, don't just claim it's perfect and move on!
By sunni johnson
Every time I try to click on a link it just gives me the chance to copy that words that is held onto the link(I guess you can say).
Tumblr, your app has changed quite in a few years and I have adjusted to all of them; this one is by adjustable since it will not let me click on the link at all. I insure you this it is just Tumblr that does that and no other app. This is causing me numerous problems and irritating me whenever I want to read, watch, or listen to something recommended to me.
Pictures won’t post 1/5
Pictures won’t post
Tends to freeze up
Way too many ads on mobile than desktop
You broke my notifications... 1/5
My notifications are not loading and it’s all glitchy.
By Aka no-one
i love this app. it’s pretty inspirational because I want to be a photographer when I get older and I feel that I’m amateur right now but when I look at some of the photos on Tumblr I get this feeling that I can do anything with my camera and I love that feeling thank God they made this app
Literally the worst version of this app 1/5
This so-called "perfect version" is probably the worst version by far. The app is barely functional at this point.
Great but... 5/5
Is there any way to report pages? I’ve came across some kiddie porn pages and there’s like nothing I can do about it and it’s weighing heavy on my conscience🤷🏾♂️
It exists 5/5
The highest honor for software.
I wanted to lower my review because it's owned by pure evil now but the keyboard in the app is faster then the operating systems so I have to give it five stars.
I shouldn't have to delete your app 1/5
And yet here I am, having to delete it once again, to redownload it because it's that unfunctional. Fix this. Remove the stupid notifications, and get rid of the stupid in your orbit thing. I wouldn't say 'get rid of it.' If I could turn it off. But like your online button, the ability to turn off the in your orbit hasn't shown up for me even though I've downloaded the most recent version. Fix this.
Broken in the morning, broken in the evening, broken at suppertime. 1/5
When the Tumblr app's updated, it's completely broken every time!
The worst 1/5
Literally the worst I can't see my activity can't see my dash why did you do that
Profile button bug 4/5
By Idek_ 98
Please fix this! Every time I click on the profile button (bottom right) the app crashes. I’m trying to keep my followers updated on stuff and this is super inconvenient. Please fix this ASAP!
show posts in chronological order, you absolute morons 3/5
no one asked for a non-chronological feed. both online and in real life, it's one of the biggest complaints i hear about social media. it's the most widely hated feature, and yet you willingly added it, unprompted, to your own app??? i've had some problems with this website before (ever notice you have a nazi problem?) but i've never seen people this upset. i'm glad it's a feature you can turn off, but it should NOT be the default. i follow enough people that i'm never able to go through my entire feed and i like it that way. i wish people hadn't chased off x-kit guy. he could have fixed this.
Very confusing and hard to use. Don't recommend.
Great But A Couple Things Need To Be Added 4/5
This is a great app, but I would love to view pages that have been added to the main blog please add this to one of the updates.
Very hot app
The Most Recent Update Is a Dud 1/5
Not once has it opened, i cant get on Tumblr at all. It's only capable of crashing. It was working just fine before that.
By angry small person
the messages broke
It's alright 3/5
I mean I only have one problem with the app: when I try to either A) type a longer post or B) copy and paste a long text post, it crashes. I'm a writer, and I can't share my writing with the world because this stupid app doesn't want to accept a certain amount of characters.
Love this app but... 3/5
There are TOO many pornbots. I think I have real people following me or liking my posts but they end up to be pornbots. PLEASE GET RID OF THEM!!!!
IT ONLY GETS WORSE 1/5
Update: y’all finally had a working version and were so proud of it and bragged in that update’s description......... only to mess it up again like STOP!!!!
I literally got a virus while on this app.... I’ve downloaded a antivirus software but yeah....
This app is so bad to the point that it is really embarrassing for those working at tumblr. Like the app will randomly shut down, and you won't be able to use it again, so you have to delete it.. only for it to crash again. Often you will make a post and it will neither post OR SAVE!! So you lose your work unless you're saving it somewhere else!! You can't search your own tags by writing in the search bar!!! And the app will just constantly reblog a post!!! And if you delete the extra posts, tumblr will still keep reblogging it!!!! I guess the owners of tumblr care more about getting money from big companies than they care about losing their user base 🤷🏾♀️
By -upset blogger-
So...non-chronological order, huh? No. Please remove that. Thanks✌🏻
The amount of posts I've lost because I accidentally tap outside the box and it just vanishes without even asking if I want to close out of it is so seriously annoying and heartbreaking, make so the only way to close out of a post is to hit the actual X please.
ALSO, the new "let's show all of the likes you got on one post on one line in the activity box" thing is HORRIBLE and ugly as hell, please just change it back, stop trying to fix things that aren't broken and focus on the actual issues you have for once.
change the notifications back to the way they were
PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK 1/5
every update makes it worse. my suicide note will literally be a photo of the latest tumblr app. it’s killing me. it’s really killing me
I'm officially annoyed 1/5
By Couch potato nacker
After all this time I've enjoyed this app. Recently it's been crashing, so I decided to delete it and download it back later. I then figure out why it wasn't working: even though it says "compatible with iPod" it isn't. My iPod no longer receives updates and is at iOS 9 still, and the app needs iOS 10 or later. Tumblr, after all this time of me loving your app and spending plenty of time browsing comfortable on it, you have disappointed me for the last time. If only there was a worse rating I could give, because I'm not too sure that this app deserves even 1 star anymore.
Needs post limit countdown and could have a “story” section like Snapchat or instagram 3/5
Needs post limit count down to warn how many posts you have left. It could also show, on mobile, how many posts have been posted on the blog. And if you added a story section like Snapchat has that’d be good. Other wise. Pretty good.
I love to look at pictures of little witch academia and overwatch so this app is great for that.great app ❤️
please fix this! 5/5
there’s something wrong with the trending on tumblr widget. it only shows the top 3 trends instead of 6 and it’s been like this since the ios 11 came out.
A vast majority of the issues seem to have been fixed. 5/5
That, or I just got lucky and haven't seen them.
Keeps telling me to log off!! 1/5
With the new update and new iPhone, this app IS NOT WORKING. It won’t load anything and then says to try logging off and logging in again, only to repeat not loading content. Very very frustrating please fix this!!!
تمبلر عالمي الخاص 😍 حقاً اعشقه
Great APP 5/5
Love this app a lot, it is the Greatest I
Recommend to anyone over 18 yr old
Can’t post Pictures 2/5
By Tiffany Smithhart
App crashes every time I try to post a picture.
this didn’t used to be a problem but now every time i follow someone, ill leave their page and see that tumblr has made me unfollow them? i don’t understand and i want it fixed, thanks
A mess 1/5
- a way to switch between accounts that’s NOT linked to yahoo. Please unlink my accounts from yahoo. I wanted nothing to do with yahoo and yet somehow you signed me up for it regardless of what I wanted.
- to be able to change your url from the ap
- STOP OUT OF ORDER POSTS. Posts don’t show in chronological order and it makes the dash a mess.
- asks don’t get sent and the limit for sending them is too small. After 4 sent asks the ap starts throwing errors.
- SAFETY SETTINGS ARE A MESS. At least once a week my safety settings reset and I have to go into settings to fix them how I want again. If you sign out it automatically resets your safety setting. Also now you can’t view anything “unsafe” via safari. It’s like tumblr wants to lose all their users over the age of 13.
- ads and recommended posts need to be cut down dramatically. Sometimes I’ll sign on and the only thing I see for 20 posts is “since you’ve been gone” and “in your orbit.” I want to see my friends recent posts.
I feel like this app does the bare minimum, sometimes not even that. The dash doesn’t load or refresh properly; posts will either not load at all of be out of order or extremely delayed (I’ve used the web version of Tumblr to verify). Audio posts don’t work half the time. Changes made to theme/icon on computer aren’t reflected in mobile app. The app has been around this long and you still can’t see and accept submissions on mobile. Just really disappointing that none of this gets fixed despite frequent updates.
Very very good! 5/5
Crashing :’( 5/5
It’d be great if the app stopped crashing :(
I’m not under 18 1/5
I’m literally not under 18 and yet it still automatically turns on safemode! Fix this! Better yet, just get rid of the whole safemode BS entirely!
