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.
Thanks for choosing Tumblr, a place to connect with others over shared interests.

Ratings and Reviews
Let’s cut to the chase
TUMBLR is, at least to a large extent, a very good porn site. Adults ought to be free to make their own decisions about the content they choose to view and contribute. TMBLR is free to set its own moderation policies. The way TUMBLR has approached this reality- and I understand the choices it has made, and why- has been an attempt to reach a middle ground, but it has been lackluster. In the 21st century, there are ways to set age limits for certain content, to moderate very highly offensive and illegal content reasonably well, and to do so without punishing the conscientious and law abiding adults that want to exercise their perfectly sound inclination to engage porn. Content providers should tag content as porn and the app should filter pornographic content for all accept those that opt to view/contribute porn. For those users that opt, require some authentication that has a reasonable association with age, and make it binding. If the user is caught lying about their age, ban them- ban their isp# or whatever number IDs their device, etc. If the content provider fails to tag content, ban them. If a user posts illegal content, block them, give them an opportunity to appeal, and then block them if they don’t or if the appeal fails.
TUMBLR is a great app- for all things, not only porn. It’s a worthy contender, and more than anything it can support the (legal, ethical) interests of everyone… users, advertisers, TUMBLR, and even the US Congress.
Sadly disappointed in a once amazing app
Tumblr has been a place I’ve come to for years to express myself. It’s somewhat my secret outlet. Having an app available is super convenient and I honestly prefer to use the app versus a desktop. If there wasn’t an app available i probably wouldn’t even use tumblr anymore. It’s extremely annoying when you’re in the middle of using the app and it crashes out of nowhere exiting you out the app. It seems like every time you guys update the app to fix bugs etc. there’s just another bug that’s created. How difficult can it possible be to finally get this right. Don’t update the app if you’re not sure it’s absolutely going to fix the problem. Sometimes posts are missing from my blog or others. I can’t even refresh my notifications without it freezing and me having to exit out he app and enter into the app again just to see new notifications. I can’t even view my drafts on one tab without exiting out my blog, which was one of my favorite features. Now I have to go to settings to view my drafts which is INCONVENIENT! Would be 5 stars if I didn’t have to exit the app 20 times a day just to use it. Using tumblr shouldn’t be a job people. Fix it or you’re going to lose people’s interest in a great website.
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.
