Pinterest is really serious about mobile, because the pinboarding social network has not only updated its iPhone app, but also launched apps for the iPad and Android devices too.
“It may sound funny, but our goal has never been to keep you online,” states Pinterest’s blog. “Instead, we want to inspire you to go offline and do things that you love.”
The Pinterest app for Android is compatible with both Android smartphones and tablets – regardless of the device’s cost, speed or screen size. In fact, Kindle Fire owners can even download the social pinboarding app from the Amazon Appstore for Android.
However, iPad users may have the best Pinterest experience. This is because the iPad app offers new ways to engage with pins, including allowing users to swipe the screen to resume browsing after viewing a board, as well as the option of using the embedded browser to see what other people are pinning from various sites throughout the Web. Additionally, the updated iPhone app is not only faster, but also displays a 2-column layout that enables users to view more pins.
