Tumblr Updates iOS App With Powerful Search, Discovery Features

By

Important new features have popped up in Tumblr’s iOS app, just a month and a half after the blog-platform powerhouse was snapped up by Yahoo.

The new features all have to do with making it easier to wade through Tumblr’s morass of noise and commentary to find relevant or interesting material.

The most obvious change is a launch page filled with currently trending blogs and tags. There’s now also a way to search tags and blogs, and the ability to follow blogs returned in the search results.

So far, looks like Yahoo is keeping to its promise “not to screw it up.”
