New iPad Apps: TumbleOn Streaming Image Viewer for Tumblr

Share This:


TumbleOn is a good-looking new Tumblr streaming image viewer app for the iPad. The developers feel that images are the best part of Tumblr and their app focuses on optimizing Tumblr image viewing on the iPad.

Here’s a bit more background on it via the App Store page for the app:

Tumblr is a great social blogging service that encourages you and your friends to find great content and share it with each other. One of the best parts of Tumblr is the great images that people share.

With TumbleOn, and your Tumblr account, you can find and share great photos, right on your iPad.

With other Tumblr apps, you’re limited to just viewing your dashboard, or tediously finding the Tumblr blogs you like over and over again. TumbleOn makes exploring new content and revisiting your favorite Tumblr photo blogs easy.

With TumbleOn, you can view thousands of photos in minutes and find great content faster than in other apps.

And its feature list:

• Find great pictures fast by viewing a Tumblr photo blog and simply swiping through the photo stream.
• View an image up-close by tapping on the picture.
• Share photos with your family and friends by reblogging, liking, emailing, or saving pictures.
• Explore the other photos in a blog an image comes from by clicking the "view blog" button on the up-close image view.
• Easily access your favorite Tumblr blogs by Bookmarking them in TumbleOn, just like you’d bookmark a webpage in your browser.
• Quickly view or bookmark a great Tumblr photo blog you’ve heard of by using the Tumblr blog search box on the "Bookmarks" screen.
• Find a new Tumblr photo blog to view, visually, with the "Explore" feature which previews 4 or 5 photos per photo blog.
• View your Tumblr dashboard, likes, and your own blogs by logging in and viewing the "My Stuff" tab of the Explore section.
• Find new Tumblr Photo blogs that we like by browsing the Explore "Staff Picks" section.

I haven’t used Tumblr in a long while, but this app looks like a good one to me. One thing I think it might want to have added is more sharing options – to other social networks like Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and the like.

TumbleOn is made by a small development outfit called Pocket Sized Giraffe, based right here in my my lovely hometown, Austin, Texas.

Here’s an App Store link for TumbleOn; it’s priced at $4.99.
