Tumblr, the social blogging app that allows you to share photos, videos, links and more, recently updated its Android app to spot a brand new interface and many other features.
To begin with, the app’s interface looks more lively and vibrant with the simplicity kept intact. Upon launching the app, the login/sign-up screen pops up, with the landscape mode also available. Once one is in, the Dashboard appears with the menu bar on top. Blogs and posts load faster and seem more responsive.
The post editor icon located in the top right corner can be accessed to post text, videos, photos, quotes, links and even chat with fellow bloggers. The colour schemes of the app look very modern and stylish, which is a refreshing change compared to the old version.
A new addition is the Radar feature placed next to the home button in the menu bar. This tiled format of artistic images posted by others looks very attractive to the eye. One can tap the image to view more posts from that blog.
There is also a Notifications view which allows one to see the ‘Reblogs’ and ‘Likes’ on your posts.
Overall, the app is polished in terms of the user-interface, is faster and has not compromised much on its functionality. Existing users shouldn’t shy away from updating to the new version while new users will enjoy blogging on-the-go with Tumblr in its all-new avatar.
