Tumblr has pushed an update to its Android app that brings support for tablet devices, such as Googleâ€™s Nexus 7. Thatâ€™s a nice win for Android since it wasnâ€™t long ago that newer devices â€” like said Nexus 7 â€” werenâ€™t supported, while Tumblr is still to release a dedicated iPad app.
Thereâ€™s precious little else thatâ€™s new with the Android app, though Tumblr has made some small changes here and there, including a revised tags page and a newÂ alphabeticalÂ order to sort followed users. The main update is support for a larger scene, toÂ accommodateÂ the growing number of Android tablets.
Thereâ€™s no word on the iPad app but, given this development for Android tablets, thereâ€™s plenty of cause for optimism from Apple tablet users.
Tumblrâ€™s last iOS app update saw it go native on the iPhone and iPod touch, while adding a new notification system and dashboard. However, the light blogging service has struggled with outages in recent times, while a worm caused havoc after causing a number of usersâ€™ blogs to publish spam posts earlier this month.
The company is currently seeing 20 billion page views per month, according to its most recent statistics.
