Pinterest Launches iPad & Android Apps, Updates iPhone App

Pinterest, the social networking site that lets users “pin” images to a virtual cork board and share these images among peers, has launched and iPad app, and an Android app, and has updated its iPhone app.

The company announced the news in a blog post today. It reads: “When we think about what we’re designing at Pinterest, we think about giving everyone a place to dream, plan, and prepare for the things in their lives. The Pinterest apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android are about enabling you to do just that, not seated in front of a computer or at the office, but wherever you go as you live your life.” 

The company previously had an iPhone app, but this has been updated based on user feedback to include a 2 column layout. The newly launched Android app has been optimized to fit the varying Android devices and is available in Google Play and in the Amazon App Store. Pinterest said that the iPad app may have the best experience of all. The blog continues: “The app offers users new ways to engage with pins, whether swiping the screen to resume browsing after viewing a board, or using the embedded browser to see what others are pinning from their favorite sites.” (Via PC Magazine).
