Android users should be ecstatic to know that the Tumblr Android app just went through a major overhaul. What an overhaul it is! It feels like a brand new experience with a revamped UI. The new app has the ability to quickly create and save posts. You can even add video and photos to your blog or follow new Tumblr blogs and manage your account from your device. iOS users received this update back in July, and now Android users are feeling the satisfaction of having the same freedom.
The updated Android app also allows you to quickly see messages from your Tumblr account, find new Tumblr blogs to follow and read. What I like is that you can post to your own blog quickly from your mobile device while embedding images and video you’ve taken with your Android device. And, there is a new home screen widget, which makes it easy for you to post without opening the app.
It’s all streamlined now, so Tumblr for Android 2.0 allows you sign up for a Tumblr account right from the app. It’s a great time to start a Tumblr blog on your Android; especially since, the Tumblr for Android 2.0 is free at the Android Market.
