We’ve been working hard on some new updates for you, and are thrilled to pull the curtain off of a big one — our iPhone app is now completely native! We think you’ll love the faster, smoother, and more responsive Tumblr Dashboard.
- Redesigned dashboard — enjoy bigger photos and faster post loading.
- Spiffy new notification previews so you can see exactly which posts were liked, reblogged, or replied to!
- GIFs now play automatically on your Dashboard! Slide your finger across a GIF to view frame by frame.
- New gestures — swipe right on any screen to go back to the previous view; long tap photos, links, tags, and post headers for more options.
- Brand new blog screens with blog portraits and descriptions.
We’re really excited about this release and we can’t wait to see what you do with it. Try it out.
So proud of our mobile engineers. In addition to implementing a redesigned Dashboard and a host of new features, the entire thing is now native. No more web views. Smooth scrolling. It means a lot of things, but you just need to use it to understand the difference.
The challenges they faced in supporting all of what can happen inside a Tumblr post are unimaginable and we couldn’t be happier with how it came out. Grab the update.
