I’m one of those people who has my iPhone practically attached to my hip. I sleep with it next to my bed and I try hard not to look at it all the time. It an addictive little piece of equipment. Well today, at least for me, the iPhone got a little bit better because the social bookmarking tool, Pinterest just released an app!
Are you familiar with Pinterest? It’s basically an online inspiration board. If you see an image you like on the web, you can ‘pin it’ to your virtual pin board. Once it’s there you can click on it at anytime and it will take you back to the site you got it from. That part is great, but the best part is that you can see other people’s boards. There is so much eye candy on there to see. Everything from design-type stuff, to handmade products, art, delicious food and DIY projects. I can spend hours on the site, it’s better than any magazine.
Anywho, back to the iPhone App. All I can say is FINALLY! There are so many times, I’m out and about, and I find something great on the internet via my iPhone and I forget about it before I get home to my computer to ‘pin it.’ Well not anymore!
I played with the app for quite a while this morning and found that I really like it. It’s super easy to use. I can see all the boards I follow and what is popular. I haven’t figured out how to search on it, or if searching can be done at all. That would be useful. Other than that, I love it!
Here are some screenshots:
If you have an iPhone, I highly recommend you go to the App Store and download this now. It’s fun and free!!
By the way..this is all my own opinion. I adore Pinterest and want to see them grow.
