IOS Tumblr has been removed from the app store, and it is unclear why
The Tumblr micro-library and social networking site have been temporarily removed from the Apple App Store from Apple. On Friday, on the Tumblr website, the company said that users had problems with the iOS application, the company said it hopes to solve them as soon as possible.
Tumblr is a popular platform for those who are looking for a blog, looking for funny pictures, GIF and so on. However, Tumblr is also a place where there are many NSFW (Not Safe For Work) messages, and it was assumed that this could be one of the reasons why iOS was removed from the App Store.
In a message on his website, Tumblr does not indicate why the iOS application was removed from the App Store, but says that it works to return it.
According to the message: “We are working on solving the problem with the iOS application and hope to start working again. We really appreciate your patience, and we will update this post as soon as we have new news. ”
The latest update to the Tumblr publication took place on November 17th and continues to mention that it is working to solve the software problem. But again, it was not clear why Tumblr was removed from the App Store.
However, this will not be the first time that an application will be removed from the App Store for inappropriate content hosting. For example, at the beginning of this year, Telegram's messaging software for iOS was temporarily removed from the App Store.
It was later discovered that the reason for the removal is the fact that some users used the iOS application to distribute images that are prohibited to minors. But after Telegram solved the problem, it was returned to the App Store.
