One of the fastest-growing sites ever to hit the Web can now be enjoyed via native mobile app, available 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 a few 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.
From the main dashboard, swipe right (Android) or hit the menu button (iOS) to see all of Pinterest's different categories. You can browse through Everything, Popular, Animals, Men's Fashion, Weddings, Humor, and more -- same as on the Web site. It's also easy to conduct a search for pins, boards, or people.
Your Pinterest profile shows followers and those you're following, as well as your Boards, Pins, and Likes. It even shows all of your items that have been liked or repinned by other users. Unfortunately, though, the mobile app does not let you edit your profile information, so if you need to change your About field, location, Web site, username, or profile photo, you'll have to do so on the Web.
