11-Time Webby Award Winner: Best Community

Tumblr. An effervescent pocket of pure internet culture. The subtle experience. An ecosystem of posting what you make, sharing what you love, and scrolling through all that lies in between memes, text, music, and tweets. Post pictures of your pet snake, delve into dank memes, find fellow fans, match your reality to your mood in a GIF. Add to it or simply scroll through and soak it up.

Now picture all of the above, but on the go. That’s what this is. Watch as a community grows around you, led by ideas, aesthetics, initiatives—instead of individuals. Come as you are, curl up with whatever brings you to your dash in the first place. The rest will layer up like your favorite outfit in fall. Watch as your likes and reblogs fashion a feed that you will love while whatever you’re posting will float through your followers’ feeds.

Oh, and the algorithm? Doesn’t even go here. Every video you find, every quote you reblog, every tag you curate, every waterfall GIF you secretly gaze at in wonder—that’s all you. You’re the explorer. We’re just a map you all keep on making. Go wherever you want.

So. Whether you’re a complete innocent searching for images of bullet journals bathed in natural light, or a rookie puppy parent in need of support, or you suddenly interrupt your knitting blog to satisfy a new urge to collect marine biology memes that may or may not exist yet—you’ll find what you’re looking for. Welcome home. Welcome to weird. Make it matter.

Bring back our likes!

Please find a way to bring back our likes! Even if a blog deactivates or gets deleted, the posts are never really gone from your website. I’m so fed up with trying to find posts I’ve liked in order to reblog them and constantly getting your “No Posts Found” message. Or every page of likes being 7 posts instead of 10. Please! Fix! This! And also get rid of the bots. 🙄

I don’t usually write reviews, but...

This app is something I’ve used daily and for a long time now. I specifically remember some people I follow posting about how awful the app gets after each update, calling it terrible and non functional, but I always thought it was because they had a “weak” device.
A few months ago the app received an update which caused it to have some problems but I thought they were bugs to be fixed. But they didn’t. Each update “squashed bugs”, yet each update somehow made the app worse. My iPad Air 2 is by no means a weak device and yet, this app seems to be its Achilles heel.
I now believe the posts that said the app was bad, and I really can’t understand how you can keep messing it up even more. Revert the app to the version from a year ago, or don’t just test it in iPhone Xs and pretend it works fine.
Also, one notable thing that needs immediate fixing is:
Opening a photo or a video and not being able to close it unless you force restart.

Stop useless updates !

This version (11.7.1) is a mess! It doesn't show me which of my posts are people liking or rebloging. Bring back the old version (11.7) or fix this mess cause it makes me not want to use it anymore. It's so annoying.
