  • As always, they’ve made a few design tweaks to enhance usability and enjoyment.
  • Introduces a brand new tumblr Radar which lets you search the entire Tumblr network, with glorious visual results.
  • You can watch posts as they are posted on the new full screen map
  • Redesigned Tumblr directory
