"The best Pinboard app for iOS" - The Sweet Setup

Share Extensions
Create a new bookmark in Pinner from anywhere you can share a URL or web page, using the two Share Extensions.

Quickly save a webpage to Pinboard without ever leaving the current app. Like to automate your apps? Pinner also supports a URL scheme.

Spotlight Search
Search your bookmarks from within iOS' Spotlight Search.

Universal search integration presents Pinner bookmarks alongside web and other app results. Search for a topic and find just the page you wanted, without having to launch Pinner.

Today Widgets
Add Pinner to your Today view with the two widgets.

"Recent Bookmarks" shows your most recent 5 bookmarks. Add it to your Today View, or 3D Touch the App Icon. "Popular on Pinboard" shows what's popular with other users of Pinboard. Add it to your Today View to see the latest bookmarks.

Shared Links
Enable the Pinner Shared Links extension from Safari and see your latest 200 bookmarks directly in your browser, with no need to open the app.

Split View & Slide Over
If you have an iPad that supports Slide Over or Split View, you can multitask with your bookmarks and even open them directly in Safari when split (enable in Settings).

Keep reading a bookmark when switching between devices using Handoff.

Transfer a bookmark directly between copies of the app running on iPhone & iPad, or send the page to Safari on devices where Pinner isn't installed - including Macs running OS X Yosemite.

Social Bookmarking
Along with your bookmarks - synced and saved to your device - browse through categories of bookmarks from other users, including Popular, Recent, Wikipedia & Fandom.

Create custom searches on both your bookmarks and community bookmarks.

Get fast access to your most important bookmarks & the newest ones from around the web. Filter by tag, title, author and URL.

Pinner utilises Safari View Controller, meaning your bookmarks open in the familiar Safari UI with all your sessions and cookies available.

Triple-tap the top bar to switch to Dark Mode, designed to be perfect for night-time reading.

Choose between a huge selection of app fonts, including ones you have installed yourself.

All Devices
Pinner is a universal app available on iPhone and iPad, optimised for Retina displays, 64-bit CPUs, and all sizes of device.

AutoLayout & Dynamic Type support means Pinner looks great on every size of device - from iPhone 4 to iPad Pro.

    10/19 update: Now that Pinner has been updated, it no longer crashes on launch, so it’s once again the definite app for Pinboard. Unlike other clients, it doesn’t just punt the rendering of the optimized view to Safari’s Reader stylesheet, it renders inline. Pocket’s distraction free view still looks better, IMO, but If you’re like me and keep your read-later queue in Pinboard, this should be your go-to app. *** ORIGINAL REVIEW Until three weeks ago this was my most used app. Then it started crashing on launch—every single time. Pushpin had the exact same problem, but fixed it this week with an update. The Pinner dev has been unresponsive to queries about this issue. I don't give it one star out of disgust, but because in its current state it's completely unusable. It crashes within 20 seconds of launch unless the phone is switched to Airplane Mode, which of course prevents the downloading and refreshing of bookmarks. An unrelated issue, just for the record: the Kindle version, which doesn't crash like the iOS version, only renders blank pages for articles switched to Optimized view, which defeats the purpose of using a Pinboard client over the Pinboard website.

    The last version was good, so I don't know if it's just some new bugs to iron out or what-- this version feels very sluggish. iPhone6s 128GB + iOS10.0.2. Clicking around there is a very noticeable lag (1-3 seconds) to flip between lists of bookmarks, execute searches etc. Also I've found that if you edit bookmarks outside of Pinner, the changes are not reliably refreshed in the app (not even with pull-to-refresh) until you force quit the app and reload it. Often when using the Share Sheet extension, the list winds up showing duplicate bookmarks etc. I hope this can be fixed up because aside from that this is a great pinboard client.

    This is an excellent interface for Pinboard, as long as you're able to actually login. I have had problems logging into my Pinboard account (using Pinner). For some unknown reason, Pinner does not recognize my credentials. I'm able to login with the Pinboard desktop or cell phone interface but not with Pinner! That basically renders the application pretty useless. Sorry. I try to be optimistic about the hard work of programmers but I have been unsuccessful using this app. I contacted the programmer once by email. Got no response. But, of course, I am only just a single user.
