Have you heard the news? The official Tumblr app finally supports tablets! But only sort of. Still, technically, you can install the app on your tablet. But be prepared: it only works in portrait mode. You know what that means, right? Yep - it's still going to suck on your 10" slate. Look at the bright side, though: it looks great on 7" tablets!

But really, there isn't much different between the phone app and the "tablet-optimized" version. Sure, there have been some slight layout tweaks; like a dedicated notification button on the bigger screen, instead of the combined panel of the phone. The real story here, though, is that you can actually use the official client on your tablet. It scales nicely, and you don't have to use any of those third-party apps anymore.

Unless, of course, you like doing Tumblr things in landscape mode.

    Stumblr (Prime) is still the best Tumblr app for me.

      Does it let you do audio uploads? That's really the only thing I feel the official app is missing

    I learned the hard way that I had to install ultimate rotation control on my TF700 pretty much immediately.

    I really wish more app developers would use the Holo format...but i liked the update of this app, things load pretty fast and gif's are working even better.
