As a blogging platform, Tumblr is good for many things – particularly the way that it allows content to be shared and spread virally. It is an overwhelmingly visual platform, though, and pictures are a huge part of the Tumblr experience. Thus, TumbleOn was born to distill Tumblr to its essence: it’s all about viewing pictures on Tumblr, all the time. Users can log in to their Tumblr account, and view their timeline just based on photos. The app handles GIFs and photosets extremely well, which is a good thing because Tumblr is all about sets of GIFs. Tapping on a photo pulls up the whole post, allowing for the whole set to be viewed, along with the text that ccompanies the post. Photos can be reblogged and liked on Tumblr from within the app, along with being saved and emailed. Want to upload photos to Tumblr? Use TumbleOn! WIth the iPad app, there’s no better way to upload photos, because Tumblr still won’t make their official app iPad-compatible! TumbleOn is avialable in both iPad and iPhone versions, and the iPhone one is free until July 13th. Get tumbling!

One of the most popular blogging platforms out there, Tumblr has recently updated its iOS app.
Version 3.0 comes with all manners of new features, most notably a completely revamped and sleeker dashboard. Increasing compatibility with the iOS format, tap based functionality is improved and swiping through the composing interface has been introduced. It should all make for a much simpler app, ensuring users can blog content even faster than usual.
High resolution photo support is now included, proving particularly beneficial to those of us with the new iPad and iPhone 4S, although the app isn’t Universal just yet.
For those without a consistent internet connection or those currently abroad, offline support will be a great hit with users able to post new blogs, reblog content and comment on others’ work all while offline.
Spotify support and the ability to search tags is also supplied.
The Tumblr update is available now.
Blogsy, popular iPad blogger tool, has been updated with a long list of 19 new features and numerous bug fixes. Blogsy was highly rated with an overall 4.5 stars by 148Apps writer Lisa Caplan just a few months ago. She described Blogsy as “a truly mobile and truly intuitive blogging solution.” Lisa even posted the review of Blogsy using the app!
Biggest and most exciting of the huge list of features is support for more blogging platforms, Tumblr and Vimeo, as well as many support features for making WordPress (likely the most popular platform) work much better with Blogsy. The Tumblr support includes all types of Tumblr posts including quotes, text, audio, video, and more. Vimeo videos can be dragged and dropped into posts now instead of copy and pasting embed codes. In WordPress, Blogsy now supports featured images, custom fields, direct access to the WordPress Media Library, post format, “sticky support,” and drag and drop for PDF, documents, and audio.
Most bloggers will be happy enough with the major support updates for WordPress, but there are even more features that were added. Blogsy now has Retina graphics for the new iPad. Other updates include various Flickr-related updates, local drafts changes, and an edit button.
I’ve been waiting for more WordPress support to give Blogsy a try…this update added all of the functionality I’ve been waiting for.
