Tumblr for iPhone Updated, Caught Up With Android

Tumblr for iPhone has at last been updated, months after it first came to Android. The new version is a complete redesign and is now a lot quicker than the older version.

The devs concentrated on speed heavily and the app is more fluid than ever. I also noticed over 3G, downgraded images load up and become better quality if it feels you have got a strong connection. Many major sites do this now, Facebook does this heavily if you haven't noticed, because images play such a huge role in the interaction of the site.

The dashboard has been simplified adding big buttons for the 6 main types posts you can publish to your Tumblr site.

I'm a huge user of Tumblr and love the quick-blogging service hugely. If you didn't know already I run a highly popular Tumblr site called Linxspiration which has 8,000 followers and growing.

Here is the quick bullet point list Tumblr added to the app store page for the app.

- Sleeker Dashboard
- Easier to tap stuff
- High-res images
- Spotify support
- Improved photosets
- New image viewer
