Categories

From the main dashboard, swipe right to start browsing through Pinterest by category. The iOS version of the app lists its categories in a menu, rather than a grid.

Account settings

These are the few aspects of your account that you can edit from the Pinterest mobile app. Everything else is locked down and must be accessed from the Web.
