The interface is also similar to that of social networking app Path. Also new in the updated app is the ability to attribute posts made from a user's iPhone. It's not clear if the redesign is a result of the acquisition or if it was already in the works. The updated Tumblr for iOS app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store.
