Good morning to you too, Google.
We know you hate having to tap on the Tumblr app icon before displaying memes, Pokemon GIFs, gay porn, and anonymous questions on your smartphone. We know you seldom, if ever, use other apps. We’ve been listening, and we’ve created a new home for Tumblr on your smartphone, inspired by you.
Introducing Tumblr Home
Tumblr Home brings you the GIFs you want, right from the moment you pick up your smartphone. Bypassing the lockscreen, Tumblr Home displays an ever-present stream of images, reblog threads, queer theory, slacktivism, hot guys, and question responses from the bloggers you follow, all on your home screen. Use gestures to interact with the feed, such as double-tap to Like, two-finger swipe to reblog, and eleven-finger tap to mark NSFW.
As you browse Tumblr or use other apps, messages and questions from other bloggers appear on top of everything else you’re doing. Simply tap on their avatar and the conversation will expand, allowing you to tell “Anonymous” how big your dick is while adding tags to a delicious reblog.
Need to open another app? No problem! Simply return to Tumblr Home, tap anywhere to display your avatar, swipe your avatar up, enter your Tumblr password, dismiss a targeted ad, and you’ll be greeted by a somewhat customizable grid of non-Tumblr app icons (developer’s note: due to a bug in Android 4.0 and higher, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and WordPress app icons will not function at launch).
It’s been almost a year since our first sponsored post appeared in Tumblr Radar. Since then, our fashion, entertainment, and brand partners have created some truly delightful blogs and racked up tens of millions notes on their posts.
We’re incredibly proud of our partners’ creativity and have been constantly amazed by how well these creations can fit into our Dashboards. So today we’re bringing these posts over to our mobile apps.
It works very simply: Every now and then you’ll see posts from our partners as you scroll through your mobile Dashboard.
Putting the ‘blerg’ in ‘blog.’

I was an arts major, not an art major. There’s a significant difference. But yeah, I overuse Brannan.
