Sure, Tumblr has seen better days. But for the Tumblr app, this could be a high watermark. I'm not sure what exactly their dev team was up to in the latest, presumably minor, update to their Android app. What I do know is that the jump from v4.7 to v4.8 brought with it the kind of changelog that should brighten your mood.

If you were worried about Android Marshmallow compatibility, don't worry; this update is already prepared for Tangerine. If you thought the underbelly had been neglected, once again your concerns have been addressed because Tumblr reports that the underbelly has been tickled.

Here's the entire thing:

  • More substantiated visuals.
  • Sturdier, more erect pixels.
  • Reversed out-of-frame colors.
  • Smoothed the visible plane.
  • Re-proportioned user actuations.
  • Divulgated temporal errors.
  • Future-proofed for Android: Tangerine.
  • Reanimated amphigory.
  • Flattened bumps.
  • Rounded horizontals.
  • Redecorated the backside of posts.
  • Upgraded enhancement engine.
  • Depressurized the dashboard.
  • Tickled the underbelly.
  • Verified the checksum.

Props to the Tumblr team for making things fun. Not everyone will see the new version in the Play Store just yet. If you want to take a look at the app for yourself, you can download v4.8 at APK Mirror.
