Just a heads up for those who are using the Tumblr app on on your iOS devices, an update has just been pushed to the App Store, which according to Tumblr is a faster, smoother version with a more responsive dashboard. Unfortunately, while the app works great on iPhone and iPod Touch, there’s not native iPad app yet. But it runs smoothly still. I can’t wait to install this app on my iPad Mini as I’m pretty sure micro-blogging on the go will be great on that smaller iPad. But anyway, the Tumblr folks are more than happier to share the good news and as they list down the following new features of the Tumblr iOS app:

  • Completely redesigned Dashboard — bigger photos and faster post loading.
  • Spiffy new notification previews — see exactly which posts were liked, reblogged, or replied to!
  • New blog screens with blog portraits and descriptions.
  • GIFs play automatically on your Dashboard! Slide your finger across 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.

The Tumblr iOS app is available now as a free download from the iOS App Store. Grab it now by simply following the via link below.
