Apparently it's because Apple deleted the iOS app because of the porn on Tumblr. Fuck Apple, fuck native apps, fuck Tumblr for deciding an app store was more important than moving to the web platform.
The Tumblr App itself has always been a bit of a shitshow - a webapp would've been a huge improvement.
@kirch I sue the Web App everyday instead of the native app it works really well.
