The new Tumblr app for Android has officially launched. The announcement was made in a blog post yesterday on the Tumblr staff blog, re-blogged from one of their mobile engineers.
According to the post, the app sports a totally new interface. New features include:
- More responsive, faster-loading dashboard and blogs
- Better photo browsing and animated gif support when you tap an image
- Notifications for multiple blogs live in one place
- Tumblr Radar!
Tumblr is a popular micro-blogging platform. It is similar to Twitter, but with more room for multimedia and longer posts. Tumblr has recently begun to integrate its service into other platforms, such as Facebook.
The Tumblr apps for iPhone and Android smartphones allow users to post to their Tumblr blogs from their phones and include photos, video, quotes, chats, links, and text. The Android version includes a "create a post" widget. The apps also allow users to follow other blogs, view and reply to messages, and manage multiple Tumblr blogs.
Take a look at some of the screenshots included on Google Play:
