Pinterest updated its iPhone and iPad applications Tuesday with a handy shortcut to help people pin, like, and share faster as they browse the inspirational social network from their mobile devices.

Now when perusing the home feed or boards, people can press and hold a pin to view a special menu for instant interaction. The new shortcut menu, which fans out on press, includes three icons: pin it, like, and send. Members slide their finger to the appropriate icon to trigger the action in question.

The animated addition is fun in spirit and practical in function as it further simplifies the act of pinning on mobile and makes the app even more addicting for the constant digital collector.

The updated Pinterest for iOS application also allows users to set board covers and mention their friends in pin descriptions.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
