Tumblr have updated their Android app and with it included an overhaul to their interface, including live notifications for multiple blogs in one place. The company says that the tweaks bring a better photo browsing experience, where users can now take advantage of the Tumblr Radar for quick access to popular images.


Tumblr didn't just dab a fresh splash of paint on the UI, they also included under-the-hood improvements for faster-loading dashboard and enhanced responsiveness. The new Tumblr update is available on Google Play, for free. Tumblr have yet to put a tablet-optimized variant on the market, or made the same changes to their iOS-based app.

The release includes:

  • More responsive, faster-loading dashboard and blogs
  • Better photo browsing
  • Notifications for multiple blogs live in one place
  • Tumblr Radar

You can grab the new Tumblr app from the Google Play store on your Android device, or here.
