Pinterest Launches Developers Platform

By Justin Lafferty Comment


A few days after launching its Marketing Developer Partners program, Pinterest announced its Developers Platform, a suite of application programming interfaces for developers to build apps and integrations.

Developers can apply for beta access, but the program is only available in U.S. for now.

Josh Inkenbrandt, a product manager on the Pinterest Developer Platform team, blogged about the news:

On Pinterest, people have saved over 50 billion Pins. As a developer, you’ll have the chance to build something that makes those Pins a reality, like apps for ordering ingredients from a recipe Pin or booking trips based on travel Pins.

When Pinners sign in to your app with Pinterest, you can:

  • Build a personalized, curated experience based on their boards and Pins
  • Let people easily create multiple Pins or boards to get more of your content distributed across Pinterest
