Returned and hope for a returnThank you for adding back pins section Thank you for adding a choice on auto replay on vids Thank you for blocking porn/spam followers Thank you for stopping the bullying through comment filters Thank you for limiting story pins my feed is now clear of them unless I was to look for them Thank you for giving options in searches Explore/shop/profile this helps a great deal in bypassing shop I personally don’t have any issues with ads because I don’t hit on them and I turn auto play off on vids so I never hear them Anyone can do this What I would still hope for a comeback is board searches not just profiles/pins finding just boards was so exciting for me quick and simple I didn’t have to search through people’s profile to see if they had anything worth following and some have a great deal of boards I also still hope for a comeback is each pin tells you how many times that pin has been saved by the public it let me know that that pin has a link and can be saved and not blocked I also would hope for a comeback is each pin tells me a person that pinned it so I can be excited about there idea and check that board they saved it too :) Everything else is going well loyal pinner since august 2012.Version: 9.27
Great but 1 HUGE problemI have LOVED pinterest for years and have used it everyday. It is probably the app that I spend the most time on when I’m on my phone. However, I ran into the problem today. About 40 minutes before this happened, I was on pinterest and there was not a single problem. After the 40 minutes passed, I went to check on how my posts were doing. when I clicked on the app, it brought me straight to the log in or sign up page (I always stay logged in so this was really weird). I didn’t think much of it until I tried to log in. It stated that my account was deactivated. It also stated possible reasons why this may have happened. None of those reasons were something that have happened on my account. Let me remind you how much I have on this app. The thing is, when you are setting up your account, you are supposed to put in your real email (but I did not). I didn’t do this because on my previous account I did use it but it wouldn’t let me log in. so I created a new account which is the one I just had this problem on. The reason I am talking about not using my real email on this account is because pinterest stated that it had emailed me and I could contact that if I needed to. So I did not get an email on my real account. I also tried to create a new account but that did not work. I also tried filling a form out trying to get my account back but so far, I haven’t had much luck. I was completely unaware that this was able to happen..Version: 10.25.2
LOVE but a tiny problemI’ve been using Pinterest since 2015. I absolutely love every new update y’all create, it makes Pinterest such a wonderful, clean, and creative community. I myself create idea pins, and my tiny creations have reached thousands of people! But this new update it’s getting hard to work with. Me, along with some other Pinterest users, are finding it hard to keep up with the story pins of accounts we follow. When you had the idea pins at the top of the home page, it was great to know which accounts were actively publishing content. I do think that with this update, I have been scrolling a lot more on Pinterest and finding new inspiration but many of my followers can’t find my story pins and same with me! I love Pinterest and I’m going to keep using it however it’s frustrating when I create pins that used to get 1.2k views and now my pins get 196… idk if you’ll even see this or do this but I have a few suggestions. Maybe as we scroll, you can come across the profile of a person you follow as it’s own pin- that way people will know that account has new content. Or go back to have the little circles at the top of the homepage, but only put the accounts with the most recent posts. Then you would have to scroll and come across older posts. Idk if this is even possible, but I thought I might as well try 😁 anyways thank you all for so much you do and always sparking my creativity :)

Having an Irritating IssueI have use Pinterest for a while now. And I recently started having this problem, and by recently I mean today. I came here to look and see if anyone else was having this problem and I saw a lot of reviews discussing other various issues many others are facing. I am myself and having a unique one and I haven’t found a review on it yet, so I decided to write one. I have not yet found out how to fix it and it’s really irritating. Basically whenever I click on a pin, whether it’s when I’m looking to save it or when I’m just going to have a closer look it only brings up a page titled “More Like This” and the pin I was looking for is nowhere to be seen so I can’t take a closer look or even just see like who made it or who posted it. it’s really annoying as a writer I like looking at the smaller details and making sure that I can see everything that’s going on and just being able to collect my ideas, this is really agitating. The only way for me to even save the pin is to press down and hold on it but then when I go to my account to look at it, it’s still pops up the “More Like This page”. On all my boards, all my pins, and even one I don’t have saved. I’ve tried closing out my apps, I’ve tried shutting down my device but nothings working. This needs to be fixed and looking at the amount of other problems people have been talking about, something’s really wrong . Please fix this..Version: 11.15.1
Love the app, but not some of the updatesI’ve had this app, and an account, for 8-10 years, and it’s one of my favorite apps! What I love is: -There are tons of pins, covering vast topics, ideas, images, etc. -The boards are pretty easy to search -I can go into my profile, type in some general words, and find what I’m looking for nearly every time. What I don’t like is: -The app refreshes if you leave it to look at something (unless you have one pin up on your screen, then it mostly won’t refresh, except when it’s been too long), which causes you to lose the pin(s) you were looking at (I recall looking at a pin for a door that was flat, round (think a Hobbit-type door, but glass, not wood), and had panels of stained glass that rotated around the circle/away from the lock on the door when you cranked the door handle in order to open said door, and I can’t find it anywhere. I have tried to look and am out of ideas for how to search for it) -When you go to save a pin, the top 3 boards that come up are the most recent ones you’ve pinned to (it used to be that the app anticipated the top 1-3 boards most relevant to the pin you’re trying to pin in that moment) -I have a Screenshot board (that was something added by the app, as an automatic way to save pins when you screenshot them), and now the app doesn’t do it anymore, so I now have to go through all those pins and sort them into their relevant boards.Version: 10.4
Pop-up notifications too bigI’ve been a fan of Pinterest for many years. I’ve seen the way the app has changed visually quite a few times. I loved it then and still do now.
One thing I’d like to change is the way notifications look when I save or delete something. The banner that tells me that I’ve successfully saved a pin to a board, blocks a portion of the next pin that I’m currently looking at. It’s too large (a big white bar) and stays on the screen a bit longer than I would like. I’d like to see a more minimal design: thinner banner, smaller font, maybe less opaque, and disappears quickly. Perhaps it could just be a simple checkmark with the name of the board the pin was saved to. if I was a casual user who only saved a few pins at a time, it probably wouldn’t bother me so much. But I tend to fall into a rabbit hole of inspo and pin so many photos to different boards that the huge pop-up hinders the experience. It would be great if I could move through photo to photo more smoothly.
It’s something super minimal, but I really don’t have an issue with anything else apart from this. When there are unexpected issues within the app, I find it’s pretty easy to get around the problem and it gets resolved fairly quickly by the team (very good job on that part). It’s just this banner thing that’s not up to me to change and it’s something I encounter every time I’m on Pinterest..Version: 9.12
Love the app, hate the updatesI love Pinterest but if you’re going to update the app and give me options of things to do, don’t take it away! I used to be able to like pins if I didn’t have a board to put it in. I can “react” to certain pictures but I can only use one reactions option and it’s not for all pins. So now I have a bunch of pointless boards so I can still see things that I like. I loved having the option of sections in boards because if I have a “house work” board I can do a section with the bathroom, the bedroom, the living room, etc. It was a while since I updated and when I finally did, I wish I hadn't. I went to create sections for my travel board based on places to make it easier to plan my own trips and I can’t! I’m actually mad about this. And something that isn’t really a major issue but kinda disappointing is that when I come across a pin that I like and want to see more of, I tap on it. But sometimes it’s just an add and it takes me to a website. Which I guess I can see more by going through the website but I can usually access the website if I voluntarily tap on the picture after getting a preview. This is also the only app that closes out on me. I know it’s a free app and it takes a while to give the app its full potential but this isn’t really a new app anymore. Keep updates!!! When you bring in a new feature, don’t take it away from us! Some of us are (more like were) using those.Version: 8.7
I love the app but I can’t stand the updatesIve been using Pinterest for about 6 years (off and on). Back when I first started using it me and my mom would find birthday party ideas and things like that but as Ive grown I continued to use it to feed into my current interests. I have been using it to find references for my fan art drawings and used to be able to comment under the pin with photos and videos and share what I created using the pin. It was one of my favorite features of the app and as a teenager that doesn’t use any other social media, I’m disappointed in the numerous updates that have taken away the actual fun out of the app. This is an issue because the app is about inspiration and using other people’s ideas to better your own. But if you can’t show how the idea actually turned out then your less likely to try it. Therefore leading to boredom of the app. I’m not sure the reason this feature was taken away but I do know that it was a big mistake. I hope they put it back in the next update and maybe the A-Z sorter for pins would be nice too? Like how many things are they going to take away- well anyways Pinterest is a great app for sharing your ideas and your creations and if you enjoy that kind of stuff try it that’s why I gave 4 stars. But to Pinterest please stop taking features away so you can add others it gets frustrating when you like something and it’s snatched away from you for no reason..Version: 9.42
Love pinterest but i have a BIG problemI love scrolling on pinterest for hours and getting inspiration for my pins. I always look forward to seeing how my account grows and being able to share pictures with others. Although, recently I have developed an issue. My account is completely gone as if it wasn’t an account to begin with. I am still logged in and can post pins & save others pins to my boards BUT when I look at my following list and click on a account that I knew followed me back, my account is no where to be found. As you know it’ll say “That’s you!” but for me my account is nowhere in the list. My views on my pins have also lowered drastically. I also get notifications of people saving my pins but once I click on my updates page it isn’t showing up. I haven’t gotten a update for almost a week now. I have emailed pinterest twice already and they are doing the best they can but I wanted to post this review to see if anyone else had this sort of problem. To add to this, I did have one of my pins say “copyrighted” so it went against community guidelines but that was after everything started to happen. I hope this goes away soon because I truly do love spending my time on this app and like I said really look forward to seeing my account grow. My account is glcrygirl and i’m hoping that this issue only lasts for a few days..Version: 11.22.1
Unfixed issuesSo I have had the Pinterest app for about four or five years. For a while everything was good, everything worked and I didn’t have many problems. However, recently a problem has popped up that seems unable to be fixed. I am unable to follow anybody, I can unfollow people but for some reason when I go into somebody’s profile and hit the follow button it lights up and tells me that I am unable to follow the person. But when I hit the back button and go back in I am not following them anymore.
Contacting Pinterest support proved to be a hassle as I either got a bit or a supposedly real person that was talking about issues on my pins that had nothing to do with the original problem at all. I even tried all the tips given, deleting app cache didn’t work, unfollowing pins and boards did not work and uninstalling and then reinstalling the app did not work. I was honestly about to just give up when I finally got a real person and they said that they were working on it and that it would take a while. I have not heard anything back since and even after multiple app updates the problem is still there.
So yes Pinterest has a ton of pins and stuff but when you encounter an actual problem it is almost not worth it to try and contact support because either you get an unhelpful bot that gives you tips you already did. Very rarely do you get somebody real, it took me ten tries to get a real person.Version: 9.6.1
Wonderful app, but there are issuesThe most recent issue is this. You’re visiting someone’s board and scrolling through it but after like five seconds the app forcefully scrolls back to the top of the board and reloads. This is really annoying as you have almost no time to scroll through someone’s board and find what you’re looking for. There is a similar bug where you visit someone’s board, tap on a pin, and then hit the back button, only for the entire board to reload. This is really annoying if you find a bunch of pins you really like while going through a board and don’t want to get lost, because the app is basically forcing the board to reload and is also forcing you to go locate those pins you were looking at all over again.
Aside from that Pinterest is a great app. There could be less ads taking up room on your feed and boards but hey, every app has to make money, I get it. The app is mostly easy to navigate and usually it will have what you’re looking for, and it’s very fun as you don’t have to look far and wide for inspiration or cool pins. There’s lots of great stuff out there if you just look around you. But the bugs I mentioned above are making it difficult to enjoy the app as you can’t properly navigate other people’s boards without them constantly reloading atm. Otherwise, great app..Version: 11.1
Love the app, but it is not perfect AT ALL ...LOOK i love pinterest, i started using this app regularly in 2020 but dear GOD are there a lot of flaws. A main one that a lot of ppl seem to agree on is the amount of ads... look pinterest we get it y'all have to eat to but there's A LOT of ads, and they overshadow the actual pins since there's so many of em!! Another issue i've had is how i can't customize which boards i wanna see in my home screen.. it's always up to the app to decide which boards will appear in my homescreen. Sometimes it will let me actually click done and it still doesn't appear!! I don't even have the option to remove boards from the homescreen it's rlly annoying ...(idk if this is a glitch on my acc or if it's pinterest doing this). Another MASSIVE issue for me is when the home screen refreshes even though i don't swipe down?? I've lost so many great pins bcuz of this option please remove it.... make it like other social medias where the home screen doesn't refresh unless u swipe down... Also according to others in the reviews, there used to be an option to search up boards by names... whyd u remove it?? that is such a great option?? Also plz let us report people for other things that aren't spam for the love of god.... There are a lot of pretty good updates like the sections update, picking ur board cover update and more, but the flaws are really annoying....Version: 10.21
Love Pinterest, not the updatesI’m an avid “pinner.” I spend time on the app each day and love to go over all of my pins. I visit it for pretty much anything I want to do. One of the few updates I’ve really liked has been the notes feature. I’ve enjoyed being able to plan on the things I’m saving pins for while in the boards. It’s been nice having the ability to do all of this work on the Pinterest app instead of having to switch to another platform to organize my thoughts. However, when I opened the app today, I was notified that I had just 2 days to screenshot my notes before they/the feature would be deleted. First, this is very short notice for those that don’t use the app everyday (I did not get a similar message when pinning yesterday). Second, I cannot see the issue with having a notes feature. If users don’t wish to engage this feature, it’s easy to ignore. I don’t use notes for all of my boards, but I’m certainly not bothered by the ability to do so. The only potential issue I could maybe see is that the design of the space for the notes button takes up too much space, but it fits just fine next to the more ideas and organize buttons. If this is the issue, create a small design or a drop down menu (though this is less accessible), but please restore/keep this feature!.Version: 11.21
Amazing until recently…I’ve been using pinterest for so long and i spend so much time on pinterest so it’s kinda frustrating because this has never happened before. i upload/post things on my pinterest feed and i never get notifs when someone comments on my stuff so whenever i look randomly that’s when i find them. yesterday i was scrolling through my posts and i noticed i had some comments so i went to go like them and the “liked by creator” never showed up like it usually does. i thought nothing of it and tried highlighting the comment and a message came up on my screen saying “something went wrong on our end. sorry about that.” i replied to the comment and when that person responded to me, i tapped on the notif and it brought up MY post but had a DIFFERENT user name on it when it was MINE. and now whenever i look at what’s supposed to be MY comments, OTHER creators comments show up but again, with MY pictures that i upload. I’ve logged out, deleted the app and reinstalled it and it still continues to do this. i recently uploaded something and when someone commented, i liked their message and the “liked by creator” showed up but it still won’t for my older posts. i tried ignoring it but it’s really frustrating and i hope pinterest fixes this soon. i really don’t want to delete everything and re-upload it or delete my account entirely..Version: 11.8
Pinterest is the jack of all tradesSo I love love Pinterest and I always have!! But I recently got the iPhone 10 max and now it just constantly freezes up when I’m on Pinterest for a while and my phone doesn’t do this on ANY other app or any other time. So I have no idea why it keeps doing this... but it is pretty aggravating.
Other than that though this app is the GREATEST!! I come here for- it used to be just for like crafts and food, but now I have come to use it for makeup ideas, for like if I have a khaki jacket and I want to see what other looks and styles and colors may go with it (that matches what I may have in my closet) I go on here for an idea of what the possibilities are to wear with it. I recently used it to find out what kinds of dresses and outfits to wear to a Christmas party.. so you can get ideas and picture yourself in the clothes, you can have a idea of what you’re looking for locally. And of course this is where I go for beautiful quotes to add on Instagram. Or funny memes even to describe super specific situations 😂 you can use Pinterest to find basically anything! Gift ideas, crafts, DIY, recipes, home decor ideas, outfit ideas, makeup tutorials, if you want a hair cut and you are looking for different styles... like you name it and they have it! Oh yea and Starbucks drinks to try!! That’s my favorite!.Version: 7.40
Long time userI’ve been a regular pinterest user for almost a decade now. I rarely have a day where I don’t check my Pinterest. I mainly use it to curate aesthetics and find inspiration for my life. It’s very soothing and artistic to me, and the only social media I’ll use. However, I feel as though Pinterest has recently gone down hill. There’s an overwhelming amount of ads. To the point of every other pin is an ad. Most of them are irrelevant to me and my feed is no longer aesthetically pleasing, just full of junk. And I’m not opposed to tasteful ads- I’ve even bought multiple products advertised to me on Pinterest that had beautiful ads that matched my interest and weren’t overwhelming. But there’s just too many now and too many pointless ones. It makes Pinterest significantly less enjoyable. I also don’t understand why Pinterest no longer shows you who pinned the pins in your feed, and when you click in you can’t click on the original user who pinned. It’s totally confusing and counterintuitive- I keep trying to click the icons of people to view their profile but I can’t. The best way for me to do it is to scroll through the hundreds of people I follow to find them. It’s a huge pain. Please make peoples profiles clickable from their pins like they used to be. I’m satisfied with most of the other features of this app and glad to be a part of the community!.Version: 9.19
Great app but…I love Pinterest so much I used to use it everyday until I got deactivated about 2 weeks ago. I emailed them twice and they said they would review my account but 2 weeks just passed so I emailed them again just now. Come to find out, other people are also getting there account deactivated for no reason or for the wrong reason. Also having to spam the life outta Pinterest just to get their attention to get their account back; because for some reason Pinterest just ignores you in this dire situation. I myself got mine deactivated for NO REASON at least it wasn’t explained why it got deactivated. It’s extremely wild that this is happening and Pinterest are just ignoring people who are trying to get their attention to get their account back. I know it might seem like me and other people are overreacting but Pinterest is truly such a fun app, and having that taken away for no reason is so frustrating. This shouldn’t be happening and it should never happen. I know it could be a mistake by bot reviewers but bot reviewers should not be able to deactivate or suspend accounts. Bot reviewers should only be able to report their triggers to a human reviewer and let that human reviewer decide what’s actually happening. Overall this app is amazing but this is the only thing that vexes me, truly. (Sorry if there were any grammatical errors I’m kinda stressed out from this.).Version: 11.22.1
Best thing everThanks to Pinterest I can express myself throughout creativity and just art boards and just all these boards that I can make and I can express myself through them I think my favorite two boards is probably my Jesus Christ one and my photography because those are two really important things in my life and this is a really great app for all ages and I do recommend it to anyone who is eligible to have it. And I first got it when I was about 11 and I just got an iPod not a phone but my parents wouldn’t let me have any kind of social media so this was kind of like a social media for me and I very much enjoyed it you can fine inappropriate things on there if you search them up I have never search them up but if you click on the wrong link or something it could lead to something so just be mindful when you have your kids on there it will ask you of like things that you’re interested in just make sure that you are looking over that because there are things on there that maybe you should look over with them other than that it’s an excellent app and in less you’re truly searching for something or you just click the wrong link you won’t find anything bad and I truly absolutely for the very last time do you recommend it to all thanks!.Version: 6.41.1
I love it but.... some stuff has to change.I used to love Pinterest. As a baker and writer I loved looking through so many recipes and and different posts. I still love the format and everything about the app. But I have tried to post my opinions in the comments, no bad language or anything and Pinterest won’t let me. People are constantly swearing and typing inappropriate stuff but I can’t post my own opinions. I will keep Pinterest because of my hobbies, but it if uncalled for to not allow someone to post something they want or believe in. People are constantly voicing their own opinions but I can’t. It is not up to you to tell me what I can and can’t say, I understand that it is not totally designed for voicing your opinions but if you have a comment section, allow people to say what they want. Just fix the problem more social media platforms are falling into, you can’t stifle everyones voice, it’s not right. Pinterest is an amazing app for anything else, bakers, crafters, and writers or anyone else with hobbies should really enjoy the app. Thank you Pinterest for fueling my imagination and crafting, for years and hopefully more years to come. Just fix the one issue and it will be a five star app, and Pinterest will be unique from everywhere else people go for crafts and posts and whatever hobbies they are into..Version: 8.44
Have I reached the end of Pinterest?I think I've reached the end of Pinterest! I keep seeing the same content over and over again. I only follow around 3000 people's Ms follow more every week. I have 9000 followers--which my number of followers slowed down significantly when they changed the feeds and algorithms. I can no longer see the people who follow me--even though my number of followers go up, it's no longer adding profiles to the followers section. I am so sick of seeing advertisements and sponsored content that have NOTHING to do with anything that I would ever want to see from Home Depot (I think we all kinda know about Home Depot at this point) to Pantene hair commercials. The settings for automatic video play do not work. And dare I use the "show me more like this button"; CLEARLY Pinterest's taste level has a bug since it usually looks NOTHING like what I've just pinned. I preferred the only method of see who else has pinned this pinned so that you could start following others with your same taste level and subject matter. Pinterest has become almost as bad as Houzz for the masses and has become very hard to curate sophisticated collections of idea boards. I use Pinterest to work with my clients and promote my business. There are very few settings that you can change and I am so tired of seeing the same content over and over again! Oh wait, I already said that--well now you know how it feels!.Version: 6.36
Pinterest user since 2011I can’t imagine not having Pinterest. I could be without all other websites and social media, but the creative side of me needs my Pinterest fix. I’m able to organize all of my ideas which is great for me because my mind runs 90mph with these ideas every day either way. I love my secret boards. I love trying new things. This year I have a new raised garden bed and redoing my front yard. One of my favorite things about it is that I can make Pinterest my MAIN Wishlist/Registry I don’t have to make a bunch of different registries for events... I can add people to a board and pin things from ANY website. So I don’t have to remember all those passwords for those individual sites. (Example: You’re having a baby and want to have a Target Registry, Babies R Us Registry, Buy Buy Baby Registry, etc etc...) Instead of doing them all separately you can just pin all the products you want from those websites directly to ONE BOARD on Pinterest. You can add your friends and family to the board or you can just send them your board link. They can follow the link and look at everything you’ve pinned in one place and make a purchase. You don’t need to create registries anymore. Everything I need is available on Pinterest. Thanks y’all!.Version: 7.21
It’s a great app but please stop taking away features!I’ve used the app for years, and it’s great, but PLEASE stop taking away features. Where you can “try” pins or comment with a photo has been removed, and it’s annoying. One of the original things from Pinterest were that you could “try” things in the comments. Or even just put a specific reaction picture. Seeing people try and recreate crafts and projects or funny reaction pictures feels like it was the point of the comment sections- to discuss the pin. Long story short it’s a feature that shouldn’t have been removed. Aside from that, the updates to the comment sections as a whole haven’t been my favorite. The new “react” feature seems a bit pointless; in the past you could like a comment and it was simple. There was a number of people that liked it and a heart lit up when you liked it. The new feature not only shows other people’s reaction in color- it only changes to “loved” or “helpful” in a dull color, which makes it really hard for people with poor eyesight, dyslexia, etc to discern which comments they have reacted to (since they are already in color) The helpful option as opposed to the loved option makes sense, but it seems more trouble that it’s worth. In short, the lack of commenting with pictures and the reaction mechanics need work. Otherwise, it’s a great app..Version: 10.24
Am addicted to this app, but was better beforeI love this app and I am honestly on it way to much😅However, I hate that they took away the tried section on pins. We can l No longer post picture or videos in the comments. In my opinion, that was one of the best features. I loved putting my art in there and getting advice and seeing others and giving advice. It’s also fun to see people try singing videos and such. I wasn’t allowed to post and a lot of people are the same way, so that’s a way to share that isn’t actually posting. I understand what issues can occur, such as bad or inappropriate photos, but you can’t really escape that. There’s a reason reporting comments is a thing. Another thing, the home feed is always refreshing without me wanting it to. I will see a pin that looks really interesting and go to tap it but it will refresh randomly without me even swiping down and I lose it forever. Very frustrating. Other than that, I love this app.
Edit: each update brings more issues lol. Not the report/edit/delete button on comments is gone. And I keep finding profiles of pedophiles and I try to report but the only option is for spam. I report anyways but I would like more options for reporting profiles like on comments.
Still want picture comments back.Version: 10.28
Devolving into every other socials appPinterest is such a gem of an app and has been for over a decade but as of late you can tell that they’re headed towards turning into just an other content recycling app like everything else. I love Pinterest because their algorithms GOT me and I’d see or be suggested stuff that I wouldn’t ever find anywhere else, whereas instagram would just show me the same thing a million times over. But now it feels like I’m just getting my instagram feed on Pinterest. My home feed will quickly turn into an amalgamation of the last few things I pinned or searches and not actual topics or boards that I follow anymore. Not to mention the ADS my god no app shows me more ads concurrently than Pinterest does and I HATE it. This morning I was scrolling and I had 5 different ads in a ROW it completely ruins the user experience and makes me just close out of the app instead cause why in gods name would I want to scroll through a feed where the ad to content ratio is 1:1 or sometimes even 2:1. It’s greedy. This app really did used to be one of the great creative resources of the internet and there still is so much that’s good about it but if every platform tries to turn into instagram or tik tok then eventually only one app is going to come out on top and I can promise you it’s not going to be Pinterest if they keep this up..Version: 11.25
Bring back “Search By Board”!!I’ve used Pinterest for years and love the ability to be able find ideas & inspiration! I mainly use the mobile version of Pinterest because of how smooth and effortless it is (along with the fact I’m always on my phone!) and I find that just searching for terms doesn’t yield varied results, so about 90% of my time I search things and select “view by board” to browse the collections other people have made! Being able to see other people’s “finds” or their own uploads is a perfect way to fill up my own boards. If I wanted to search for a certain aesthetic or look for certain types of recipes for example, how else would I find good boards to follow so that I can see their posts in my feed? However, when I last updated it, the feature that allowed us to search by board on mobile is gone!! I can’t even hit a picture and be able to trace it to the boards it shows up on. All the pins on my main feed I can’t even see where they came from. I expand my results not by hoping Pinterest’s own algorithms pick up what they think I want to see, but by what boards and pinners I follow!! Please bring this back! The fun of Pinterest is in cultivating all kinds of resources or pictures in one place, what good is that if I can’t even have the option to view the ones others have made?.Version: 9.1
ALL Ads & Algorithm. NO (real) friendsThe Sponsored Pins are out of control. I see sponsored content more than I see my own friend’s post (and I mean face-to-face friends). On multiple occasions the sponsored posts have opened without any intentional interaction on my part; just from my scrolling through the app or when searching for something. But I have to put an effort just to see what an individual friend’s personal activity/recent pins. I feel like a creep. And now I’m getting told “Hire an interior designer from [sponsor]” when I’m just tryna look at a bookcase! That’s too far.
I’ve been on Pinterest since it’s was invite only and now it’s overcrowded with multi-level marketing schemes and aggressive sponsored ads posing as real pins. I miss seeing my REAL life friend’s posts, not just what some AI algorithm thinks I want. And what’s up with the pop-up asking “did you find what you were looking for?”, why do you need an answer when I don’t even know what I was looking for? It’s just as uncomfortable as having a sales associate invading your personal space and following you around the store tryna make a sale sell when you’re just trying look around. That behavior is what keeps people from making a purchase or coming back again.
Now I’m concerned with how my data is being used. Don’t pull a Facebook Pinterest, I’d hate to see you go down like them and lose the trust of your users..Version: 6.71
Long-time user but hate some of the updatesI’ve loved Pinterest since a friend got me onto it, it’s perfect for my writing work and image references. I’ve stuck it out through the rough patches cause it’s just that handy. Small things here and there I can live with, but the most recent update has got things going pretty screwy and making it hard to use the mobile app.
The most recent update took away the side-scrolling alphabet letter list on the board selection. I have A LOT of boards spread across TWO accounts, and I tend to move very fast when I get on a spree. And when I say a lot, I mean I’ve tapped out at the original board count before and i just keep going up! So you can imagine how time-consuming it is to have to manually scroll through Ever. Single. Board. to find the one I want to pin to. Please bring that back.
Also, on the mobile app, the board selection tab while pinning is slippery AF. It’s so incredibly difficult to manually scroll cause the list keeps trying to slide itself closed at the bottom when I scroll up. If I’m trying to access boards not already in the top three selection, just throw the whole list open and keep it in place until the user closes it themselves, don’t let it go trying to close at it scrolls up or not open all the way when I’m trying to scroll down..Version: 8.44
Can only tell tech support about listed problemsPinterest is pretty good unless something isn't working right, but just try to tell them something is wrong if it doesn't happen to be one of the very few problems they've decided to list on their help page. Apparently, Pinterest thinks everything is perfect and any difficulties are user problems because the available options are only about how to use it right. There seems to be no email address, etc. to which to send problems that they don't want to hear about. Well, too bad. Here's a maddening problem:
If you are viewing anything that has to do with Taste of Home recipes after a minute or so a T of H ad will appear on the left and a larger one on the right. Together these block out a significant part of the screen. (I'm using an iPad 2 Air with iPadOS 14.2). You can close the ad on the left by touching the X in the upper right hand corner and it goes away completely. However, the larger one on the right simply turns off the ad and leaves a big white rectangle where the ad used to be, which continues to obliterate the same amount of the page as the ad did. There's no way to get rid of the white box. This does appear to be a problem with the app since the ads don't even appear on the T of H web page. Drives me crazy...almost as crazy as not being able to find a way to report the problem!.Version: 8.44
Great App, Unsolved IssueI have used this app for a long time to love it, I used to use it for almost everything. You can find different things for it, like, clothing, food, hairstyles, nail inspo, shoe inspo, almost everything. But then I got this thing a while back about “Teen Safety” something about how your account is private if you’re under 16. Which, I understand, I understand the thing that if you’re a minor then of course, make the account private, but to deactivate a specific BOARD, is petty. It wasn’t used for anything bad, it was just for my friend and me to save random memes that we thought were funny. But then out of the normal Pinterest decided to make it non-accessible. I was shocked and honestly worried that it might lead to my whole account being deactivated, which I then decided to contact them about. And I haven’t been happy with the app since. I got pretty angry with it too. It happened to my friend’s account too. She couldn’t reach my new account or my old one. I wasn’t able to do the same either. It was a really random thing too, we haven’t done anything out of the community guidelines or terms and conditions, and we didn’t break any rules. Then Pinterest decides to do this, it was petty as heck. I didn’t understand it and I still don’t. If my issue isn’t fixed then it isn’t, but if it is then great. Thank you..Version: 11.13
Open mindAs a retired educator of 44 years I have felt bad about students not learning the “basics”. I am a firm believer in lifetime learning however and have found the internet, especially Pinterest and u tube to be an amazing resource. My hobbies include woodworking, welding, customizing autos, boats, motorcycles, oil painting, silversmithing, etc. no day passes that I do not find something valuable. After camping and hunting for a lifetime I am shocked about how many tips I find to make these hobbies more comfortable or economical. Think about being turned around in the woods or a city. Ask seri and you can get out the most isolated spot. Drive along and see a sign in Spanish or some other language and you can get a translation, The benefits are endless and Pinterest is a wonderful tool.
The biggest problem I had with public school students was the question “where are we going to use this?” If you are in an unsatisfactory, dead end job then education is the rescue. Education does not have to be classical academic. It can be welding, home building, concrete work, electrical, auto repair, beauty school, or what ever you are interested in. Pinterest can answer a lot of questions about whether to proceed into a field. Keep an open mind!.Version: 8.2.1
Used to love itThis used to be one of my favorite apps. I got my husband hooked on it as well. But now it seems that ads are taking over. Too many buyable pins that have nothing to do with anything I’ve ever looked at or saved. And way too much pornography for a site that claims they don’t allow it. I highly doubt that a picture of a naked woman with her legs spread and that links to a xxx site is considered “art”. I agree that in artistic instances nudity would be acceptable, but on a site that I am supposed to be able to hand my phone over to my child to play on, these things shouldn’t be on there. I get that it’s the same risk you run with using the net, but these things show up in home feeds when you’ve never looked at anything remotely close to it. My husband showed me a funny gun meme and as her scrolled through the “more like this” several naked women came up. If the pinning rules aren’t going to be enforced, there should be some sort of family filter you can click on. I’ve also noticed over the past couple days, my husband has a recents tab in his boards page that I don’t have. This is actually pretty handy if I’ve looked at something but didn’t pin. Seems like if I try to go back and find something I’ve seen earlier in the day, it’s impossible to find again.
With a few improvements and enforcements it could be better..Version: 6.38
Just a couple things need fixing :)I absolutely love Pinterest, I’ve used it for years. The only reason I’m giving it a 4 instead of 5 stars is that recently (meaning a few weeks ago) I realized I can no longer “try pins”. At first I just thought it was a little glitch but seeing as other people have updated the app and said the option is gone is kind of a bummer. I mean, Pinterest is an idea app and a diy place where you share your ideas and how they turned out with other people. How are you supposed to show how it turned out without the try pin? I’d love it if this feature came back. Another thing that disappointed me was that I saw another review saying the sections inside of boards were taken away? Of course, this review was left a year ago but still, I’ve been hesitant to even update my Pinterest in case this is still happening. I use sections inside all of my boards because sometimes I’ll have a board for my house but I section them off from bedroom, bathroom, etc. and it’d be really difficult to find what I’m looking for if that’s taken away. Anyways, I know I just went on and on about all the things I wish could be fixed but honestly it’s not that much and I really do love Pinterest, it’s my favorite app. :).Version: 10.6
Suggestion to the app developersI love this app for finding and organizing all sorts of crafts, recipes, home tips, etc. but it is really irritating to continuously have a bar popping up at the top of each webpage asking if I have found what I want. Most of the time I am pulling these sites from my own saved pins so yes, I have found what I wanted because that’s why I use your app, to find what I have saved here. That, and when I am choosing a pin from a search I notice that this question bar loads before the page even loads and takes up part of the page. At that point it’s just annoying to be asked if I found what I wanted because I can’t see the webpage yet and certainly don’t know what is within the page yet to know if I did indeed find what I wanted. Please consider altering how and when you ask your users if they found what they wanted. Maybe the pop-up could be altered to only pop up when a search from the home page is done. Also, maybe change it to pop up 30 seconds after the user clicks a link so they have a chance to see what is on the page before being asked for feedback. Overall, I still love your app and use it all the time. I just want to stop seeing this pop-up every time I open a link I’ve had saved for years. Thank you..Version: 7.8
Love it but this update??I love pinterest, I have been using it for years. One of my favorite features was that I could look at pins related to specific boards on the homepage. Why did ya’ll think it was a good idea to swap it for a “watch” section. Not every app has to be like tiktok. The watch section is LITERALLY tiktok. If I wanted to see those videos I would go on tiktok but I don’t because I come on pinterest to look at pretty pictures. I understand some people might like it, but it was just fine the way they showed up in the feed amongst the normal feed instead of having a tiktok only watch section. PLEASE bring back being able to swipe over and see pins related to specific boards. You do not need to be tiktok #2
EDIT: I’m glad to see you brought back the “more ideas” tabs. I wrote my last review in anger after seeing the update because I don’t like change and loved pinterest as it was. I still stand by not liking the watch section. I also don’t like that when you click on a video it brings you to a video scroll feed instead of the way it used to be. I used to watch some videos on this platform, especially to see related pins, but I will no longer be watching any in dislike of the tiktok like feed..Version: 11.3
A huge problemMe and my friends absolutely LOVE this app. We’re always checking out each others boards, sharing pins, etc. However there’s recently been a huge issue that’s sprung up, and despite looking all over the web, no one has said a word about it. This is something me and my friends are all experiencing, so I know it’s not just me.
Firstly, whenever I’ve tried to see my followers so I can go to my friends’ profiles quickly, I’m greeted with that spinning button that just keeps going. They never load, but that’s not the worst issue. The worst part is that some of my friends’ profiles appear to have been completely ERASED from the app? Yet I’ve seen them scrolling and I know their accounts are still active, but they don’t appear in my following. It says I’m following 9 people, but only 5 show up. Their accounts are not private. To one of my friends, I don’t show up for him while he doesn’t show up for me. We haven’t blocked each other. Whenever we try to send each other’s accounts through links, we’re greeted with an error message. I’ve updated the app and it’s still not fixed.
Pinterest is a special app for all of us, and if I can’t even see some of my friends’ ideas, it’s just a huge bummer..Version: 11.15.1
The new layout is so uglyI love this app, and have been using it for awhile. But this new update layout is very ugly, it would be great it you guys made it back to its other layout, this new layout feels pointless, and makes it harder to navigate. Edit: Now on top of the bad layout that still has not been reverted, you have gotten rid of the feature to see what boards pins are saved too, which is an awful, awful decision, as now I can’t find boards I like that help me expand my related boards. So now I just have to find profiles and hope they have stuff I like, which should NOT be how I find boards I like. These updates are ruining the app more and more and it’s making me enjoy it less and less. I could get use to the new layout, but taking away the feature to see boards that pins were saved on is crossing the line, you are making this app a hassle to navigate and you won’t even listen to anyone’s feedback no matter how many reviews and emails you get. I’m almost done with this app, I’ve given it much more time to fix than it deserves at this point and you people don’t seem to care to fix it’s horrible problems that YOU cause..Version: 8.11
High Praise, but why change the feed on ‘following’ to single pix?I note the feed for ‘home’ is thankfully the same as before, with multiple pix across the page, but the feed for ‘following’ is single, large format pix., making it difficult to consume many photos for time spent. Please, please change this back! That said, I have been a long-time Pinterest user and have seen it go through a lot of changes. I have to say they have been pretty responsive to requests, overall. You can now opt between suggested pin feed, or feed from people you follow. You can once more arrange boards to suit. You can also choose how you want to view boards, 3 across, 4 across, or a page of small thumbnails. Also, as many Secret boards as you like. Something for everyone. It used to be far more social, as far as associating people with their pins, even when they were re-pinned...although problems sprang up with people being very protective about the artistry of their boards and discouraging people from pinning more than a few pins a day, and so things changed. I agree with many that the promoted pins can be a bit much, and I would prefer not being automatically taken to a site. Still, it is a great app and still allows for lots of creativity and enjoyment..Version: 7.8
Good in the past, but terrible updates!I have been using the Pinterest app for years now, and these updates may be terrible enough for me to finally leave. First of all, the stories/slides function is confusing and difficult to use. If I’m ever swiping through content it’s a hassle to get through these stories that often have nothing to do with what I’ve pinned in the past, which brings me to my next point: the algorithm. I am constantly getting both suggested pins and targeted ads that have nothing to do with any boards or searches I’ve made! My home feed is full of ads that I am not interested in with very little actual content, much of which is irrelevant as well. It seems like the “hide pin” feature doesn’t even do anything to improve my feed. To me, it seems like Pinterest is struggling to remain relevant in the wake of Instagram and TikTok by introducing new features and changing up how content reaches viewers, but I think I speak for the majority of Pinterest users when I say that people don’t use Pinterest in the same way we use other platforms. There’s no need for flash and flair when Pinterest is already a well-designed social media platform with a specific user base in mind, and making these changes just interrupts the way people use the app..Version: 9.16

Seems to repeat itself too muchI used to have pins on different subjects which made it so interesting. Now, if I search for a chocolate cake recipe or a sweater pattern, all the pins I receive are related to these two searches. It is not as varied as it used to be and it is disappointing.
