Everybody nowadays has a smartphone and uses a lot of apps in order to work or just play a game and relax. Some apps are designed especially for talking with friends and maintaining relationships. Other apps are getting more popular and trying to cover more features.
Tumblr, for instance, is not adding photo filters and stickers. These two features are going to be available only for Tumblr mobile app. This update will allow users to decorate photos as they please. With the help of the photo filters and stickers, people can also decorate GIFs.
The update is going to be available for both Android and iOS users. At first, the company announced that they are going to add 100 stickers. These stickers include objects, symbols, text, and frames. In order to have access to them, the users need to tap the face icon that is located at the bottom of the screen.
Tumblr announced that they are going to launch more photo filters and stickers in the future but now they are only providing 100. This should be enough for their users who are now testing these features for the first time.
The fact that the Yahoo-owned company finally decided that it is time to add photo filter and stickers, shows that they are trying to catch up with the other social media apps like Instagram and Facebook. They also mentioned that some of the filters and stickers are going to be permanent and some will be replaced monthly.
This could be a great step for Tumblr to gain more popularity considering that it has a lot of rivals in the mobile app market. They mentioned that they are adding the limited-time stickers in order to make users check the mobile app frequently. This way they will gain more users that will spend more time on the mobile app.
Tumblr mentioned that they are already working on the photo filters and stickers for Valentine’s Day, that are going to be ready just in time. Some tech experts also mentioned that the photo filters that the company has prepared are different than the ones we usually find on social media apps.
These filters are considered to be more bright and colorful. They are going for the pop art-like photos instead of the usual filters that are now on Instagram or Snapchat. Users will just have to check for these photo filters and stickers every month in order to see what has changed.
