That’s not the problem with Tumblr’s new Android app, released today to mostly-rave reviews.
The new app is completely redesigned, and the best part is the post-anything screen that reinforces Tumblr’s reputation as the simplest place to post just about anything. It’s playful, popping out of the bottom-right corner with a cheeky animated reveal that offers options for posting video, images, text, links, quotes, or chatting.
And yet, it’s still simple. And smart.
As UI Parham Aarabi says, the easiest place to reach on a mobile phone is the bottom right – where the icon starts. And notice the curve of icons, nicely approximating the sweep of your right thumb upscreen.
(Frankly, Tumblr should offer a left-handed option.)
The app, as previously, allows you to manage your Tumblr blogs, find and follow other blogs to read, read and respond to messages, and tweet out your latest updates.
Here’s a quick overview, in pictures, of the new Tumblr Android app, which is available on Google Play.
