The new interface and features make tumblr for Android a beautiful and functional application
Tumblr for Android got quite the update today, bringing an overhaul to the entire interface. Gone are the boring, scrolling lists and static squares of old, and the new interface is a bit of Path or Flipboard wrapped up inside a Holo design frame. It’s all very well done, if I’m allowed to interject my own opinion here.
In addition to the overall design changes, tumblr has built in some snazzy animations. Pull to refresh or tap a button to post and you’ll see things bouncing and popping up, making it a bit more engaging and fun to fiddle with. The way images inside posts are shown has been tweaked as well, and they now really stand out in the stream.
It’s a really nice piece of work. If you’re a tumblr user, you’ll love it. If you’re not a tumblr user, it may be enough to make you one. In either case, it’s worth having a look if you appreciate great app design.
