Pinterest Finally Joins the Android Clan

Authored by: Steven Blum — Aug 15, 2012

The long-awaited Pinterest app for Android was just released last night and it is a gorgeous and fast little thing that's already racking up hundreds of five star reviews.

Pinterest is the internet's moodboard; a website where you can share the pictures that inspire you in a pleasing layout. The Android app brings the same functionality of the website to the palm of your hand. You can search for content by category (men's fashion, for example), or by looking at what your Facebook friends have recently posted.

I'm surprised to say I actually enjoy navigating the Android app even MORE than the website. You can repin, like and comment simply by tapping a picture, and sharing with Facebook and Twitter is a breeze. The search menu is awesome and the app is smooth as buttah.

Honestly, compared to sites like Reddit, I tend to find the content on Pinterest a bit superficial (how many photos of gazpacho and cupcakes can you really handle, anyway?). But every now and then, I find things on the site that really inspire.

The app is free, so what are you waiting for?
