Tumblr was great back in the day, but I sadly can’t take the app seriously any longer. Their UI and UX are clunky and bloated, and their product team seems to think that they should hide certain features (where it takes 2-3 hops to get to what you want).

I do hope they improve the product and make a comeback, it would be cool to have it back on the map.
