Tumblr for iOS Gets More Sharing Options

By: Josh Wolford - April 24, 2013

Tumblr has just updated their iOS app to make it easier for users to share across networks, as well as also bringing a new email template and other improvements to the party.

Tumblr has finally given iOS users the ability to share posts via Facebook and Twitter – something that other Tumblr users have been able to do for a while now.

For those who wish to browse Tumblr outside the official app, they’ve also added Pocket and Instapaper support to the iOS app. The new app also features a new email template which lets users easily view messages in either the Tumblr app or their mail client.

Smaller updates include scrolling animated GIFs and a new photo-disposal gesture. Here’s te full list of updates:

  • Share posts via Twitter, Facebook, and more
  • Save stuff for later using Instapaper and Pocket
  • Email an entire post with our beautiful new template
  • Fling a photo up or down to close it!
  • GIFs animate while you scroll*
  • Following list is now alphabetized and searchable

This update comes just a couple of days after Tumblr launched their first-ever in-feed mobile ads for both iOS and Android. Users will now see as many as four ads a day from the likes of Pepsi, GE, and Warner Bros.

And they also just launched their first-ever Window Phone app.

You can grab the updated app from the App Store today..
