Turn off auto-refresh in Tumblr Dashboard Streams
The app refreshes even faster since I switched to iOS 10. It gives me legit anxiety that being out of the app for <5 minutes can cause me to lose my place in the feed. I'm considering uninstalling it and just trying to use it on the mobile browser, except that the browser version pushes the app so hard as to be useless.
Tumblr knows it's annoying but they keep it because auto refresh moves fresh advertisements to your device. The programmers are not too bright because they can use Ajax to fix the issue. Tumblr needs to stop decorating their app with silly bells and whistles
and focus on fixing annoying features

It seems like the Tumblr app has a auto refresh switch in the settings; look for what's happening on Tumblr switch and turn it off.
this is seriously the worst about the app, as soon as I leave it for a second, it refreshes the dashboard, even though I have background app refresh turned off.
I SWEAR I'M GONMA FLIP MY SHIT IF TUMBLR RELOADS MY PAGE ONE MORE FUCKING TIME
Sucks. I hate it
It's seriously the worst now, I respond to a text and my place is completely lost.
Totally agree! This is extremely frustrating! It disorients the user and causes a waste of time trying to find out where you were before the refresh.
