The name “Pinterest” could have appeared earlier; possibly some critic could use it for the most prominent works by Harold Pinter. But today we hardly catch this when we speak of Pinterest, a place to collect your interests. Pinterest is like a big multi-layer deck you pin your interests to and group them together by topic. Being a kind of social network, Pinterest is the place where you can show off your skills and works and see what others boast.
In fact, it’s an I-want-it visualization, the spot to start changes in your life. Major ones like getting a new profession and location, or minor, like new wallpapers or clothing; they all fit in this virtual space.
Maybe that’s why Pinterest is mostly a ladies’ place: it’s much about that art of little things bringing big comfort, the art most men see as a kind of magic. But men as well can find much useful there.
As the place for exchanging ideas, Pinterest seems perfect. The first steps are as easy as can be. You don’t even have to sign up once again; Google or Facebook account will do if you allow that in authorization settings on logging in.
As you tap on your profile, you see a wall full of empty boards you can fill with pins. First, you’re suggested to create a board where you pin your interests and tag them with keywords. It’s all so visual and material that it seems to be a real replacement for a pin board, especially if you have an enormous tablet to connect somewhere in your hall and keep it powered with a free Pinterest app running. You can make your board private by activating “Keep Board Secret” option, then it won’t be found in your profile or by content or tag search. To start searching, you can tap on an empty note to open search field.
It’s not about simply consuming what pros create. You may publish your content here. It can be photos of what you make by hand, of what you cook or design, of your lifestyle. You can add any volume of text and links.
As the service is social, you may add new friends or transfer connections from other social services like Facebook or Google+, Twitter is also integrated. When a friend of yours adds a new public board, pin or comment, you get notified about that. You may also follow popular channels, find similar to your pins by long tap and selecting the lamp icon, search for certain content or tag. And of course, leave your comments and likes.
You also get daily notifications on new boards you may be interested in. It may be street views, home decorations, web design templates, books, clothes, completely anything. Add all you like to your public, or private boards.
There is a lot of ways to share what you like. To send your pins or boards to other Pinterest users just select the recipient from your friend list. You can also send your pins out through third-party social, mailing or transferring apps, or save them as notes in OneNote or Evernote. You can share all you like in your camera, in your browser or on YouTube, straight to your Pinterest account as well.
Shortly, Pinterest is your board to pin everything you like. It works in both ways: to show off what you can do or to see what others promote.
The app seems strange for those not used for totally visual board-like representation. But after a day or two of digging deep into it, the app starts looking logical. Something unclear? Use the Search, Luke. It’s always in the upper right corner.
There’s no crucial difference between tablet and smartphone experience, iOS and Android versions, portrait or landscape mode. The app doesn’t hide or reveal new features; it’s stable and сlear for those used to it.
The app is not as intuitive as we’d like. It sometimes confuses to see the empty screen with “download pending” never ending, so the screen remains blank until you do some searching. Then you get lines of images revealing boards by tap. Well, after you have used the app for a day or two, the initial shyness goes away, and the screen immediately gets filled by propositions based on what you have liked or pinned to your boards.
The app is translated into most popular languages, but the content is mostly in English. Luckily for those who don’t speak it, most photos and videos need no commenting.
We tried the app on different devices, both newest and rather old, and noticed no significant problems with performance on whatever we used.
Cross-platform use 4.5/5
You can download Pinterest app both for iOS 8.0 and higher or Android starting with 4.1.
Even though developers keep Pinterest free, the app still has a lot to offer for your money. Many pictures and videos are just ads, with links to buy clothes, toys, tools, but Pinterest doesn’t have anything to do with it. It’s the case we’d rather have built-in payment system via in-app purchases.
The idea of creating a virtual pin space for ideas has turned out gold. The Pinterest is a workshop, a shop-window, and a pin-board at the same time, and it’s all interactive. Here’s where you find ideas on how to color up your life. It’s up to you whether Pinterest is worth your attention, but if you’re into those big and little ideas, it will open a new world for you.Collapse
Pinterest is a cozy world of its own, filled with positive, tasty, useful and beautiful things, with a well-made app welcoming you there.
Pros : A great lot of useful and beautiful ideas;
Integration with other social services;
Unified interface and design for different platforms;
The app is localized for most countries.
Cons : Too little content in languages different from English;
The actual build for December 27th, 2016 has a 6.6.6 number, so is your faith strong enough to interact with this number? Well, it’s no problem, but leaving just one “con” seemed a bit dull.
Cross-platform use 4.5
Average : 4.6
