App: Pinterest


One of the fastest-growing sites ever to hit the Web, Pinterest can be conveniently enjoyed via native mobile app for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices with free download.

Pinterest lets you browse through pins and boards, add your own pins, and manage account settings. If you do not have a Pinterest account, one can easily create one right from the app. Just walk through the initial setup, tap a few pictures, and let Pinterest choose a batch of users for you to follow. Once all is set up, you can start browsing through pins, repinning others’ items, and pinning your own.

Just like the Pinterest Web site, the app opens up to your main dashboard, showing a feed of all the people and boards you follow. From here, you can swipe down through your feed, conduct a search, or create a new pin, using a photo already on your device or a new photo. From the main dashboard, swipe right (Android) or hit the menu button (iOS) to see all of Pinterest’s different categories. You can also browse through Everything, Popular, Animals, Men’s Fashion, Weddings, Humor, and more same as on the Web site. It’s also easy to conduct a search for pins, boards, or people.

The good
The Pinterest mobile app looks and feels just like its Web site, which makes pinning and browsing on the go a breeze.

The bad
Cannot change cover photos for boards.
Pinch-to- zoom on photos would be nice.
