Pinterest for Android v1.8.3

Pinterest, arguably the world’s foremost social network for recipe ideas, knitting patterns and other Esty-esque intrigue, has finally come to the iOS and Android in app form. Pinterest is among the newer social networks, but gained prominence fairly swiftly after its closed Beta in March 2010. Its pin-board style interface seems the perfect fit for a flick-friendly tablet, so it almost seems a shame it has taken the network this long to get down with tablet users. Both the universal iPad/iPhone edition and Android version are available now, from iTunes and Google Play respectively, and both are free downloads.
My first impression? It reminded me of the Google+ app, and that’s a good thing. Kind of like a crossbreed between the Pinterest site and the G+ app. I’ll just come out and say this: in many ways, the Pinterest app is better than the website. It’s fast, easy to use, and is incredibly intuitive. Anyone who uses the service and has already installed the app can probably attest to that. In fact, I now prefer it to the site. It’s as if the service was designed with mobile in mind right from the start.

As soon as you fire the app up and sign in, you’re immediately presented with the same content you would normally find on the homepage of the site. A swipe to the right goes to the categories/search page, and a swipe to the left take you to the dashboard.

Your Pinterest profile shows followers and those you’re following, Boards, Pins, and Likes, as well as any of your items that have been liked or repinned by other users. Thanks to recent updates, the mobile app also lets you edit your profile information, including location, Web site, and profile photo.

One of my favorite things about the app is that, once you’ve pinned an image, it takes you back to the main search screen with the list of results. By contrast, the website actually displays a popup letting you know that the image was successfully pinned, after which it goes back to the pinned image. It’s all a bit superfluous to me, so I absolutely love the fact that the app doesn’t do that. Both “like” and “comment” work as advertised, and since this is basic functionality found it many apps, I’m not going to go into detail there.

All that’s great, but how does the interface translate across various screen sizes? One word: brilliantly. This is actually the area in which the Pinterest app reminds me of G+ the most. On my Nexus 7, for example, I’m presented with three columns of image results in portrait after a search; switch that up to landscape, and it offers four columns. On the Galaxy Nexus, it only shows two in portrait; three in landscape. And on the TF700, which has a larger 10.1″ display and is used primarily in landscape mode, it displays five columns of pictures in landscape; three in portrait. Here’s the point: the app is incredibly dynamic across various screen sizes and resolutions, while still keeping the same look across all. Just like the G+ app. And I love it.

With the Android app, pinning a photo from the Web is simple, thanks to Android’s Share function. From any browser, just go to Android’s built-in share menu, and choose “create pin.” From here, you can choose which photo to pin, select a pinboard, add a description, and so on. The workflow here is exactly like that on the Web site. Additionally, you can create a pin directly from the Pinterest app with a photo or by inputting a Web address. That shit… enjoy..

The good: The Pinterest mobile app looks and feels just like its Web site, which makes pinning and browsing on the go a breeze.

The bad: Cannot change cover photos for boards. Pinch-to-zoom on photos would be nice.

The bottom line: The near-perfect Pinterest mobile app rocks at just about all of your basic pinning and browsing needs.
