Tumblr’s app for iOS has vanished from the App Store during the past weekend.
Details regarding the removal are not available at the moment and Tumblr claims that they are investigating the issues with their iOS app and they will continue to offers users updates.
9to5Mac reported that Tumblr-related issues started popping up earlier during the past week.
PiunikaWeb saw that users were not able to locate the app while the iOS parental control features have been enabled. A short time after this, the app seemed to vanish from the App Store for everyone.
Tumblr brings updates
Tumblr provided its first update regarding the issue on Friday afternoon and most recently updated users on Saturday evening.
Here’s their original statement:
We’re working to resolve an issue with the iOS app and hope to be fully functional again soon. We really appreciate your patience as we figure this out, and we’ll update this article when we have news to share.
Read below Tumblr’s updated statement:
Thanks for checking back with us. We’re still working on the issue with the iOS app. We’ll let you know right here the minute everything’s fixed.
Some of the users who have previously downloaded the application for the iOS reported that they do have the ability to install the app again after heading to their purchases tab in the App Store.
But, it’s more than obvious that this doesn’t help at all users who wanted to download the app for the very first time.
9to5Mac assumes that the issue is probably connected to the inappropriate content section of the App Store Guidelines.
Apple did this again and they pulled out other apps from the App Store for this kind of violations. The latest app which recently suffered was the Telegram app.
When Tumblr solves the problems and the app is back up we will let you know.
