( About time. The versions I tried before were pretty crappy. I spoke too soon. It’s not compatible with my iPod. )
The Tumblr blogging service has launched a completely revamped version of its iPhone and iPod touch application. The new Tumblr application is re-built from the ground up and includes a redesigned dashboard interface for organizing blog posts, high-resolution image support, offline mode, and more.
The new application is more intuitive and the process of writing and posting Tumblr posts is shorter. We’ve been testing the new app for a short amount of time and it is incredibly well built. Here are some of the other new features:
- Easier to tap stuff
- Spotify support
- Improved photosets
- New image viewer
- Tag search
- Notifications live in one place
- New and improved post forms
- Faster (no more waiting for the post to upload!)
- Camera shortcut (swipe the compose button up!)
- Text post shortcut (swipe the compose button left!)
- Offline support (post, like, reply, and reblog even when you’re not connected!)
Tumblr 3.0 is available for free via the App Store.
