Tumblr updates Android app with tablet support

tumblr android tablet app

Tumblr now supports Android tablets. The company just updated its app to work on larger screens, with new layout elements including a mosaic-style tags page. There have been a few nips and tucks in other areas, too, such as an alphabetized list of people you're following. Other sections of the app such as the dashboard, however, look mostly the same as the phone app — this isn't a total revamp. Still, it took a long time for Tumblr's app to even work on tablets such as the Nexus 7, so the dedicated layout support is a promising sign. iPad owners, meanwhile, still have no official Tumblr app to speak of.
