The official Tumblr app just made its debut on Windows Phone 8 this morning. First impression: it’s a great looking app that takes advantage of many of Windows Phone’s unique capabilities. Download it here.
The app lets you post just about anything from just about anywhere—pictures, quotes, music, videos, chats, links, and your random musings. It has full GIF support and works with speech recognition, so you can use your voice to create new posts. The app plugs seamlessly into the Windows Phone 8 camera via Lenses, making it easier to share snapshots on the service. It can also let you know what people you follow are posting with Live Tile and lock screen updates. Give it a try and tell me what you think.
It can't work on wp7.8 :(
There hasn't been a lot of traffic on the blog lately, but I'm sure that's because WPCentral has captured the WP fans attention for the most part.. But, users are thrilled about the amount of big name apps that are now pouring in consistently. Tumblr is one of those apps fans have been asking for, so I know they're having a big discussion about it right now.. We hope the big name apps keep coming in.. Good job!!
no lens integration on Windows Phone 8 with the UK version of the official Tumblr app and it doesn't appear on the Share menu for either IE or Photos, which is where it would actually be the most useful. Lock screen is nice but if you want to publish to Tumblr you have to copy and paste URLs from IE, which makes it just like using the Tumblr web site; I was really hoping to publish Link posts straight from the IE menu like I can for Twitter, Facebook and Linked In already.
