Tumblr App Gets an iOS 7 Redesign for iPhone and iPad

Tumblr pushed out an update for its iPhone and iPad apps today, finally changing its design to reflect the new look of iOS 7. The Yahoo-owned service may have dragged its feet a little trying to catch up with Apple’s new operating system, but the final result may have been worth the wait.

Tumblr’s iOS app version 3.5 includes a completely redesigned Dashboard to match iOS 7’s streamlined look. There’s also a new UI for composing posts as well as a new menu for choosing what type of post to create. The app also includes a faster way to reblog other posts, and introduces autocomplete for tags.

Following Yahoo’s $1.1 billion acquisition, Tumblr faced some criticism over a handful of family friendly changes to the site. For the most part, however, David Karp‘s creation continues to chug along. You can download the redesigned app via the source link below, though if you’re running iOS 7 it should update automatically.
