Without a doubt, Pinterest is one of the most popular apps for the iPhone and iPad. It is also now on the Android and already managed to take in a large following. Basically a social photo sharing application set up pinboard-style, Pinterest allows a user to share what they like with others. You can also browse other peopleâ€™s boards.
Of course you can also change the settings of the app, particularly your account, which is more than easy to set up. After going through the simple setup, tap some images and you can let the program choose those to follow. You can immediately browse the pins. You can pin your own stuff or re-pin those of others you like.
Pinterest app works much like their website. Your dashboard shows what boards youâ€™re following and it’s interface is simple enough to follow. Your dashboard allows you to make a new pin, do a search and swipe along your feeds. When creating a new pin, you can use a new picture or one that is already there. To see the various categories, hit the menu button (iOS) or swipe to the right if youâ€™re using Android. Among the most popular are humor, weddings, menâ€™s fashion, animals, everything, popular and much more.
Pinterest also lets you search for pins, people or boards. Note that your profile will indicate your followers and those you are following. Your likes, pins and boards are shown too. A useful feature is you see what other users re-pinned and liked.
Pinterest is really all about social networking in images. The ease with which you can share stuff is the reason why it has become a mainstay in a lot of mobile apps.
