Pinterest

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.

Review

A must-have app for avid pinners

Editors' note: This review was updated May 29, 2013, to cover the features added in the latest version.

One of the fastest-growing sites ever to hit the Web, Pinterest can be conveniently enjoyed via native mobile app for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. Each app, designed specifically for its platform, lets you browse through pins and boards, add your own pins, and manage account settings.

If you don't have a Pinterest account, you can easily create one right from the app. Just walk through the initial setup, tap a few pictures, and let Pinterest choose a batch of users for you to follow. Once you're all set up, you can start browsing through pins, repinning others' items, and pinning your own. Just like the Pinterest Web site, the app opens up to your main dashboard, showing a feed of all the people and boards you follow. From here, you can swipe down through your feed, conduct a search, or create a new pin, using a photo already on your device or a new photo.
