Tumblr gives its Android app a ‘total facelift’ to follow Holo design conventions

Tumblr has updated its Android app with a completely new look, featuring a redesigned interface which more closely follows Holo design conventions — Google’s theme guidelines for Ice Cream Sandwich. The update also includes other aesthetic-focused changes, including new post animations.

In the past, Tumblr had neglected its mobile presence, but over the last 6 months the company has turned things around. Just this past November, Tumblr released major updates to its iOS app, and now this update follows that trend.

F**k it, we'll do it live!
