The recently launched Tumblr app not only allows you to follow your favorite blogs, post, share and explore new content, it also enables you to buy, pledge and get involved. Select posts will host these new buttons, thanks to partnerships with Etsy, Artsy, Kickstarter and DoSomething.org. App users can click the new button when it appears, and the correct contribution or payment page will appear in your smartphone's web browser. These new options will appear automatically on relevant posts, enabling Tumblr app users to purchase and fund the products and campaigns on other websites like Etsy's online marketplace.

Available for iOS and Android, the mobile app is one of the latest expansion tests by the microblogging platform.
