I've never used Tumblr in my life, so won't pretend any experience, but thankfully there are extensive sample screens provided by the developer:

It's the usual HTML5 and UWP 'furniture' mix, but seemly very slickly done, here running across the 'tabs' in the UI, with 'home' and 'search'...

...then conversations and blogger notifications, all blurred here for privacy...

Your Tumblr blogs, and then showing a Tumblr search...

Finally, an example image search and part of the posting UI, with automated animated GIF creation from short videos.
