Tumblr For iOS Updated With New Camera, Photoset Creation And More
The official universal iOS app of Tumblr has just tumbled into another major update, which brings several notable enhancements. And foremost among these enhancements is a redesigned camera. On the iPhone or iPod touch, the Tumblr app's camera has new buttons for setting the flash function, switching between the rear and front cameras, and enabling or disabling grid view. These buttons are also present on the iPad, except for the flash setting, of course, since there's no flash function to speak of on any of Apple's tablet models. Aside from the new buttons, the new camera in Tumblr for iPhone and iPod touch also includes a scrollable view of your photo library. But on the iPad, the photo library view is separated from the app's camera. Either way, from this view, you can easily select multiple photos to add to your post, thereby creating a photoset.

So, you don't have to do so using Tumblr's desktop site or its dedicated Photoset app. The new version of Tumblr for iOS now also lets you like posts by double-tapping them (as in Instagram) and change your avatar by tapping it in your profile. In addition, when creating a link post, the app now automatically fetches the webpage title after you copy or enter a URL. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later, Tumblr for iOS is available in the App Store for free.
