Tumblr update 3.3 adds photoset feature and a new camera interface for iOS devices

Popular app Tumblr is undergoing a makeover with new version 3.3. The update adds interesting features to the app like integrated photoset capabilities and a new camera interface. There is not much variation in the original look and feel of the app and the changes are concentrated on the interface design for the iOS version of the app. The iOS variant allows users to toggle between the two cameras – front and back and enabling or disabling flash and grid view. The native iOS app does not have any app based or UI based control for Flash, a useful feature provided by the update for Tumblr.
