Ratings and Reviews
It looks aesthetically very nice, the user interface of course is very friendly and efficient, finding generally anything has not been a problem....BUT theres major bugs in the app and it starts for me in the notifications/messages button where if you click on it no matter how long you’ve been on the app it crashes the max times my app has crashed in a row is now 7 and on occasions it goes away but doesn’t for a while. Then the notifications refuse to show you what’s been updated the only way i have been able to is by switching over to my second account then coming back to my original and it finally shows new notifications normally i would have to pray and close the app and hopefully it would show new notifications and not crash. Next we have the messages and people being on it always has the wrong time for when people have been on....someone could literally be making posts but it says they were on 3 hours ago?? Like what’s going on with that. Another problem is with playing a video and if you scroll it can either get stuck playing and it literally continues until you close the app or when you play the video then scroll it just continues playing for a few moments then stops. As far as i know this is the most bugs i’ve gotten recently on this app hopefully the developers see this.
I love Tumblr, I hate this app
This app has so many issues that have yet to be solved after at least a year or two of them existing. Despite the messaging system, which I’m sure has been critiqued plenty, inconsistently and unreliably updating or not updating while you’re using the app- you also can’t click on asks or even keep track of your asks in any way through the app. If you want to go look at one of your apps, you had better be keeping constant track of whoever asked it because all you’re going to get is a notification, and clicking on the notification (if it was answered) only takes you to the person’s profile. The app will randomly crash for seemingly no reason, even while under little to no stress. The double-click-to-like feature doesn’t work unless you tap a large body of text or an image and even then, it may not register properly (maybe user error but still inconvenient). You also can’t keep track of submissions in any way unless you just miraculously remember- I think you get notified but I don’t even think you get that much. Aside from all this, there’s a myriad of other functionalities and nuances that are almost entirely unimportant (like how if you click on a person’s name that’s attached to a post, it’ll take you to a dedicated page with nothing but that post and a couple other posts from that person’s profile below it). This was a poorly-thought-through review but I think it covers most bases. Otherwise, it works enough.
Primary and Secondary Blogs
I like Tumblr a lot. It has a few bugs, but not too many more than other apps. However, it really, REALLY bothers me that you can’t switch between which blogs you want to be your primary. My primary blog was one I made when I was 13, ignored for years, then logged back into and wanted to start fresh. When you tap the search bar on your profile, it has suggested tags that someone can select to see all posts on your page with that tag. Even when you delete all posts with that tag, it remains, and you can’t delete that.
So, I decided to make a side-blog since I didn’t have another email to use, and the email I was using prior was specifically my art email, and it would be unprofessional to have several emails on my different art accounts for different apps. This was fine, but whenever I comment on other peoples posts, it automatically uses the primary blog, and there’s no way to change that.
I’m not the only person with this issue, and it could be easily solved by adding the option to switch which blog you want to be your primary. It’s extremely frustrating, and I can’t deactivate my primary to reuse the email and make a new account, so I’m stuck. It makes me want to uninstall the app if I can’t use it how I planned to, when the solution to the problem isn’t that difficult.
