That’s right, Tumblr’s latest iOS update is here bringing even more blogging goodness to your iPhone or iPad.

tumblr_nmesk0eOoj1qz8q0ho1_r3_1280Tumblr 4.0 brings a shiny new app icon, along with a widget for quick access to what’s trending on Tumblr.

Once you’ve added the widget to your notification center (requires iOS 8), you can swipe down from anywhere to see what’s new.

The update also brings a bunch of other interesting new features: you can submit to submission-only blogs on the go, create secondary blogs, filter searches by post type and also create a video post from a URL.

The company says there are a bunch more smaller changers like sticky avatars and better GIF loading too.
