The Tumblr app for iOS has disappeared mysteriously from the App Store this weekend. While deletion details are unclear at this time, Tumblr says it is investigating “iOS app issue” and will continue to provide updates.
The problems for Tumblr seem to have begun earlier week. PiunikaWeb found that users could not find the app while iOS Parental Controls were enabled. Shortly thereafter, the app appeared to disappear from the App Store for everyone.
Tumblr gave its first update on the question on Friday afternoon and last updated on Saturday night.
We are working to resolve an issue with the iOS app and hope to be fully functional again soon. We really appreciate your patience when we figure this out, and we update this article when we have news to share.
Thank you for checking back with us. We are still working on the issue with the iOS app. We will notify you this minute, everything is fixed.
Some users who have previously downloaded the iOS Tumblr app report that they can reinstall it by visiting their app store in the App Store. This does not of course help those users who want to download it for the first time.
The issue is probably linked to the inappropriate content section of the App Store guidelines. We’ve seen Apple suddenly drag other apps from the App Store for such violations, most recently including the Telegram app. In most cases, Apple works with developers to update their apps and remove such content.
We update when Tumblr resolves its “issue” and the app is made available again in the App Store.
