How is it possible that, two months later, an app that is provided by Tumblr itself (not some third-party or independent developer) , should remain broken, especially considering that there is no real alternative on the market and that backing up is crucial? Do Tumblr staff people pay attention? I am disappointed.

A nice and useful application (while still listed as beta when downloading). It used to work flawlessly until a few days ago. Unfortunately, right now, it is no longer able to access my Tumblr account for backing up (while I can access my account for editing it via a browser without any problem). I hope this will be fixed soon: it would be a pity no longer to be able to use this app.

Same for me. I make regular backups of my Tumblr blogs and it's the first time it doesn't work anymore.

Still no fix... It is amazing that an app developed by Tumblr's own staff cannot be fixed in order to work correctly! Especially when one thinks that apps produced by developers not linked to Tumblr have been updated in order to adjust to Tumblr changes...

I used this a few months back after a different extended Tumblr downtime scared me a bit. Works as advertised.

After the more recent (and still partially ongoing) troubles, I switched to Posterous. They provided a very easy importer that did a marvelous job of moving all of my posts over, so this App ended up being unnecessary. Better safe than sorry!

I've tried this with several accounts, and I think it's broken due to the post-id change Tumblr made in April. It broke lots of tools, including this one.
