The Pinterest Android App – Addiction Finally Satisfied!

AVTFinally! Wait over! The Pinterest app is finally on Android and with more than 10 thousand subscribers within just a week of its launch, this app is all set to rock. You now have an amazing image sharing social network right at the touch of your fingertips. Since Social Cubix is a curious app developer, we decided to give the app a tryout and here is a quick Pinterest app review for your indulgence.

A Brief Intro for Newbies

Incase you are a newbie and have no idea what Pinterest is all about, here’s a quick intro. Pinterest is an image based social networking website that allows you the privilege of “pinning” any image you like on the World Wide Web to your very own pin boards (hence the name, Pin-terest…pinning your interest). You can connect with other pinners and share, like or comment pins. What drives this network is its focused approach. Working only as an image sharing web service, it’s an ideal time pass for people to simply browse, share and pin images that describes their tastes in various spheres of life.

How the Pinterest App Works

Pinterest android app developer
If you already have a Twitter or Facebook account active, all you have to do is login with either of the two accounts and set up your profile. On the app version, you will have to tap on a picture on the main Pinterest app page to continue with the profile setup. If not, you can login with your email. You can even send out an invite to friends to join your network. That makes it all the more interesting when you can simply share images of your interests rather than talking or Facebooking it. The options are limitless. You can pin wedding plans, recipes, devices, products you love, quotes, ideas and virtually everything and anything in image form!!

Once you set up your profile, the app will provide you default board categories. You can edit the boards or you can create new boards! Once done, you can pin images from your mobile’s gallery or from the web. It’s as simple as pinning up images on a classroom board (remember those school activities?)

Positive Features of the App

  • Easy login and registration.
  • Easy to create boards and pin all the stuff you like.
  • High quality graphic display.
  • Easy Navigation
  • Sharp picture resolution
  • Easy to save pictures to device

Some Negative Aspects

  • Slow picture load and upload (also depends on connection speed)
  • Does not show images when logged out, unlike the website that still allows us to see popular images, even if logged out.
  • Ironically, the app does not have a “Pin It” button for pinning images right from the web browser of your phone. You will have to get an individual Pinterest Bookmarklet and install it on the web browser to work in integration with the app.
