Tumblr Makes Search Better On Android

Tumblr announced a “little update” to its Android app. It will now let you filter searches by post type.

As the company said in its thought-provoking announcement, “Comes in handy sometimes. Cool?”

As a matter of fact, yes, this should come in quite handy. Tumblr has never been known for its user-friendly search tools, but it has gotten better since Yahoo acquired it. We’re not sure if that’s a direct result of the acquisition, but it has been the case.

In December, Tumblr made its search feature on the desktop more dashboard-like. This followed a major overhaul to the search experience in October.

On Google Play, Tumblr says, “Filter your search results. Filter them by post type. Just the photo posts? Yes, you may. Achieve focus in your life. Unshackle yourself from the burdens of plentitude.”

This appears to be the only new item in the app’s update.
