Everyone seems to love the Tumblr blogging service. Even Apple, in late 2014, launched a Tumblr focused on iTunes.
And the official iOS app has just been updated with the move to version 3.8.
Most impressively, the app now offers improved integration with both security suite 1Password and Authy, which is designed to generate two-step verification tokens on your iOS device. Interestingly enough, earlier this week, 1Password was updated to create one-time passwords that can be used for services like Tumblr.
The app will now also show notifications for asks, answers, and fan mail. On your lockscreen, swiping notifications allows you to like posts or follow people.
Finally, users can also delete the app’s cache to free up space.
A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, Tumblr can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.
Before today’s improvements, the last major update to the app arrived back in October. Version 3.7.1 ushered in two-factor authentication for extra security, a new video player, and the ability to reblog comments.
Yahoo-owned Tumblr continues to gain traction, especially with younger users, and now hosts a staggering 220.8 million blogs with 87.4 million new posts every day. And the company’s iOS presence continues to get even better. I really love the service, and am interested to see how fast it can continue to grow.
