Review Tumblr

Jay Feldman
6.8Good
Intuitive interface, modern design, fully-featured free version
Functions slowly, glitches, is lagging, kills your battery
Tumblr for Android is what’s known as a micro-blogging site. It’s not quite twitter, but it’s not quite a blog either. Basically, it’s just people sharing photos and posting short comments about them. II guess it's a lot like Pinterest, only Tumblr doesn't work as well.
Tumblr is sort of addictive and also very maddening. In a nutshell, Tumblr is owned by Yahoo! and is essentially a photo sharing and discovery app. It’s great for finding inspiration for that project or activity you've got going on. Similar to Twitter, you can follow users and keep up on what they are posting. You can also post comments, make new friends and discover new photos about most any subject your heart desires. Just enter a search string or browse the exhaustive boards. Once you find something you like, just hit the ‘follow’ button and new posts from those boards will automatically appear on your dashboard. For the most part, Tumblr is a lot of fun. There’s tons of photos to sift through and there’s a lot of user participation, which makes things entertaining and interesting.
The app itself is where everything falls apart. The interface is fine and looks great, if only it would just work. Sadly though, Tumblr is constantly shooting itself in the foot with notoriously slow image loads and monotonously maddening system hangs. Frankly, the glitches are so bad, that I gave up on Tumblr entirely. I really like the service and find a lot of great pictures there, but the interface is just so tediously glitchy and slow, that I can’t be bothered with it anymore. I spend more time waiting for something to load than I do looking at pictures I like.
Tumblr is a fantastic service and an exhaustive image database with great user participation. But the completely bogged down interface and data hiccups make it utterly unusable and maddening. If they ever fix that, I’ll be back; until then, I’ll just stick with Pinterest.
