Pinterest Positive Reviews
Love Pinterest, but The New Quick Saves board is very annoyingI love Pinterest and I’m on it a lot in my day, but the new update came with the new quick saves thing, and it’s takes longer to save my pins, because instead of having to just press and hold then choose the board I want my pin to go to, it automatically goes to quick saves and then I have to go to the quick saves board, and then move that pin to the original board I wanted it to go to and then delete the quick saves board because I don’t like it, then I have to repeat that process EVERY SINGLE TIME I find another pin I like, and it’s just hard for me to be on Pinterest now, I love Pinterest but the quick saves is just annoying and has made it harder for me to save my pins, now that the process to saving them to certain boards has become longer, thanks to quick saves.
Because of this, saving pins isn’t as easy as it used to be and it’s a lot more work and is more time consuming than just having to press and hold then choose your board.
Pinterest was perfect exactly how it was, I know that the Pinterest company put quick saves in to make it easier, but it’s just made it harder since most people like to have an organized board and not just a bunch of random pins in one “quick saves” board. Idk I just find this quick saves board kinda useless, and it’s making saving pins harder..Version: 9.19
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
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
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
Stop changing it constantlyI love Pinterest, I have for a while now. However, they constantly are changing their formatting & the way it’s set up. Sometimes it’s for the better; I loved when they added the sections to boards as this made it way easier to organize pins, boards, & keep track of it all. But it’s not always a good thing. Recently they updated it & got rid of the A-Z on my home page which can make it a pain if you want to pin something in the lower end of the alphabet & have a lot of boards. Or if you want to look at a board without searching the board specifically (sometimes I may forget what I titled a board) & just want to look under Q because I know I have it under a board for quotes for example. So my point is the changes they make aren’t always positive. And even if you’re like me & use Pinterest a lot it’s hard to keep up with the “new” way of doing things & set up they may have changed it to. Kinda like if someone constantly keeps giving you an updated phone, you’ll figure it sure, but if they give you one all the time it gets annoying as you’re trying to keep up with how does it function now? I mean way too constant. There may be features you really like that they do away with completely & that may ultimately make you use it less. Stop it Pinterest team. I know you’re working on improving it, & that’s great, but don’t fix what isn’t broken..Version: 8.44
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
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
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
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
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
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
Hate some features but i rly like the appPinterest is probably my favorite app to save pictures and get inspiration and what not but the updates and features are terrible. i don’t know when it exactly started, but the all pins board, quick saves board, and shopping list board i all hate them. i think the all pins board is now removed but i hated that board bc it looked terrible w the other boards i had. some people make their boards all pretty and match a theme but the all pins board ruined it. i HATE the quick saves board. it’s so annoying. you have to keep going back and save it to a folder and it repeats for all the pictures you pin. it’s even worse when you need to save the photo to two different boards. the only reason i like pinterest is because you get to have so many boards and sub categories in those boards. in my opinion, quick saves kinda defeats the purpose of pinterest. also i don’t rly like the shopping list board. i don’t buy anything directly off of pinterest anyway. i think it also looks bad on your home page. pinterest team please please please remove the quick saves and the shopping list board. at the very least please put it in the settings and let the users change the settings to their liking. i think a lot of people also feel the same way as me, so please consider it..Version: 9.21
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
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
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
I love Pinterest, but..I love pinterest so much and i’ve had it for a while but now, it’s starting to act up.
one day i was just on pinterest after growing my account a good amount. and then suddenly it logged me out i was so confused and thought it was just a glitch and i could log back in. but i couldn’t. it said i had done something wrong and i was suspended from that account. i had no idea what it was talking about. i hadn’t done anything wrong. and i couldn’t check my email to see why i was suspended because it was hooked up with another pinterest account. so i made a new account and it was ok. but i was glitching, a lot. i couldn’t follow anyone. i would follow someone and pinterest would unfollow them. i also couldn’t message anyone. when ever i tried it would say “oops! there’s been an error” it was sooo annoying. i tried everything, restarting my phone, deleting pinterest then downloading it again. nothing worked. then free two days maybe. it logged me out and said i was suspended, again! i created a new account and maybe ten minutes into the account, which i still couldn’t follow anyone or message anyone, i got suspended from that account! i am so aggravated! it is so annoying. could you please fix this? i love pinterest not i can’t do anything anymore! thanks!.Version: 7.26
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
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
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
Great App but Needs Some Work...Hi! Before I go into my suggestions I would just like to say I don't leave ratings a whole lot so I don't know if there is a proper way to set up my comment LOL. Anyway I think this app is AWESOME. It runs really well and the quality is just amazing. There is one improvement I have. There are A LOT of pins that have some serious vulgar language. Now I understand you can't really tell people to stop swearing but maybe there is a way to block these pins? Of course I know you can block pinners but maybe instead there is a way to block the pins that have vulgar language instead of blocking the pinner. So you are just blocking one of their pins and not all of there boards. Maybe like a child-friendly mode? It is just really annoying when you are just scrolling through your home feed and boom there is this pin that swears like crazy. I have already turned off recommend pins and unfollowed people that pin pins that have vulgar language but I still run in to this problem. I just don't want to see that stuff. Anyway I don't know if this is possible but if it is I think it would be an awesome improvement. Again this is a great app and I totally suggest downloading it..Version: 6.40.1
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
Where did the “Like” button go?I’m all about Pinterest. I love the recipe and meal ideas, the seasonal outfit ideas, the cookie & cake decorating ideas and the ability to find awesome ideas for parties I’m planning. When I first started using Pinterest, years ago, not only could you save a pin, you could click on a little heart and like it. Where did that go? Now, on another person’s board, I saw a little lightbulb in the bottom left of the pin that said to tap and hold for reactions. This is great but when I went into my board to check out my pins it didn’t have that feature. I’d kind of like the option to like a pin again, especially pins personal pins, not just re-pinned things. Will everyone eventually get these reaction buttons? I really hope so. I guess what I’m saying is it would be great if someone saw a pin that was of, say, my own personal content, they would both have the option to “Like” it and to re-pin it. It be nice for the person who’s putting their own content on Pinterest to know if their followers like what they’re pinning. Other than that I think maybe you could slow down on the ads a little. I know Pinterest is free, which is fabulous, but ads popping up more than once or twice during a video is really annoying..Version: 8.2.1
FollowingThe statement below was my previous rating, till I realized that Pinterest created an old-school space under the "following" tag where I only see images from people I'm following... exactly why people fell in love with Pinterest to begin with. thank you so much for going back to the basics, and even though you still have these whack ads, they're on the "home" section, not the "following" one, so yay!!! please don't muck it up with ads on the "following" section. what you did is genius, and now everyone should be happy.
old review: why, Pinterest? why? I don't understand why you continue to push pins from people I don't follow. I don't follow them for a reason. don't you understand that pinterest is visual therapy for many, that is, they log in and get much relief from seeing all the ideas they've pinned as well as pins from people or boards they follow. but then we see ugly images that are supposedly taken from our own interests, and they muck up the whole flow of image therapy. then I have to click "hide" one image after the other after the other until I get so sick and tired of seeing the same ugly pics and just close the app. you guys are whack..Version: iOS 6.55
Still great!I love Pinterest and the app has made it so convenient for me to be able to save the things I like onto boards. Not only that but I can always find creative inspiration for my next art project or meal! It’s like having an online memory box where I can look back years and see how my tastes have changed and evolved. Plus I’ll stumble onto an old project, recipe, or general pin that I like and be able to use it again!
The only thing that I would change about the app is a feature that has pulled up in the newest updates. For example, when I search “brunch ideas” there is a button on the lower center portion of the screen that says “Refine”. While I can appreciate the concept for it, it’s more of an annoyance to have it on top of where I’m scrolling to look at pins. I think it would be a better fit at the top of the screen in the same section as the search bar so that it eliminates the issue of a button covering part of my pins. It’s a small issue, however it can become quite cumbersome when I don’t want to refine anything. Even if there was a way to turn it off/close it when I don’t want it, that would be great! So far I haven’t been able to find out how to do that.
Even with this, I still love the app!.Version: 6.79
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
Awesome butHi! i love pinterest, i’ve been using it since like 2012 when i got my first ipod touch. It’s been awesome and i have like, a gazillion boards for fashion and art references and nerdy projects and i love it BUUUTTTT ya’ll switched up the way we choose the board we’re saving a pin to and i am not okay. I had the max number of boards (150?) and then when the max number rose i’ve continued to make more and more boards and honestly??? manually scrolling past every single board i’ve made since i was 14 instead of the alphabet slider is TOUGH but then to top it off, whenever i pass the board im looking for, when i try to scroll up it just closes the whole screen and im back starting at the pin i wanted to save but couldn’t. It is such a hassle and the select-a-board screen is so sensitive that sometimes it takes me like 3-4 tries to pin something. and when i use a board that has a ton of sections in it, i have to successfully navigate the new way to pin things ✨twice✨ to actually pin something. I’m in my 20s, i grew up on tech, im not dumb. please at least make the slider less sensitive, and i’d really appreciate getting the alphabet slider back. i’m dying 🥺.Version: 8.41
Love Pinterest, Not UpdatesI used to use Pinterest more than any other social media but since these latest updates I’ve been using it less and less. Every time I pin something, 75% of the following pins are the same subject or even the same pin repeated. I like how the app is recognizing my interests but I can’t keep my followers over the same chicken recipe.
I also miss the circles in the bottom corner since it was able to easily see some related pins without getting lost in the “more like this” pages. It was also nice to see who pinned what on the homepage so I can continue to follow people who use the app and unfollow people who no longer do without having to go onto every pinner’s page.
Something that Pinterest doesn’t have that I have been craving sense the beginning: SUB-BOARDS!!!! I hate going onto someone’s page and they have over 100 boards and at least 10 are the same subject. With sub-boards pinners could follow and create one board and use smaller boards within the maim board for sub-categories. Say drinks for example and the sub-boards would be alcoholic beverages, smoothies, infusions, etc. Our pages would be so organized and things would be even easier to find with such large boards..Version: 6.41.1
Board sections finally came and are amazing!!! (Need a couple fixes though)I’ve been asking for sub-boards for years and Pinterest finally delivered! Although you previously had keyword terms show up in boards, you couldn’t create your own, so it wasn’t as great. But now you can! The only bad thing though is I’m seeing a few glitches on mine. Since we can create our own sections within boards, I tried to combine a couple of my original boards into sections on just 1 board. I noticed that every time you edited the location of a group of pins from one board to another, you had to close back out of the app afterwords because the other board wouldn’t appear in the new destination list when you tried to switch some more over again. Then, since I thought all of the pins from one board had successfully been moved to the other board, I deleted the original, only to find out for some reason that they hadn’t actually been moved to the other one. I lost an entire board today😢 please fix! Also maybe have suggestions as to which pins belong in which sections? Other than that though, the new feature is great..Version: 6.38
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
Not the same anymoreI’ve been using Pinterest since the beginning, when it was invite-only. I planned my wedding with Pinterest, I stumbled onto so many cool ideas and life hacks and interesting people... Pinterest legit made my life *better.* Now I hardly use the app at all. It’s almost all ads, and I hardy ever see content from the people I follow. Even worse is the search function, which is... pathetic, to say the least. Pinterest used to be fantastic for helping me find inspiring images and links for just about *anything* I was looking for; now searches only yield a handful of results, all of which are ads, *none* of which are actually relevant to my search. I’ve been using Google image search a lot more now. Pinterest has become essentially useless to me. I’m not seeing content I like, I’m not able to search for content I like, and with so many ads, the “social” aspect of this so-called “social media platform” is nonexistent. Seriously, what’s the point? I’m holding out hope that developers will take critiques like this seriously and restore some of the functions that made Pinterest such a great app, but... I’m losing patience. If things don’t get better I’ll probably just delete the app and save space on my phone... why keep a useless app around?.Version: 6.40.1
Pretty good, could improveSo it’s pretty good. Much less toxic than other social media’s. However, here are my suggestions for improvement.
First of all, it refreshes too often. If I go to my profile, and then I go back to the home page, it refreshes. I wish it would only refresh when you open the app, or when you ask it too by swiping down. Also, when you open the app it shows you pins, and then it refreshes. This is annoying because if you see a pin you really like, and you want to save it, you can’t.
Secondly, I think something should be done about the spam in the comment section of many pins. In many comment sections, you will find many comments like these: “heyyy everyone, I know these comments are super annoying but I’ve been working on my boards and I’d love if you check them out and maybe drop a follow 🤪💖😊.” These comments are so common that they hide comments about the actual post. Not only that, they are annoying, and make me not want to use the app. I think these comments drive away many users of the app.
Those are my two big complaints. There are other, smaller issues, however they don’t cause problems and are hardly noticed.Version: 9.2
Unnecessarily censoredIt might be that I am just getting used to these type of social media formats, but I was hoping to find more art nudes, interesting photography/photographers, experimental works, and perhaps links to auctions, galleries, etc... I joined having searched for an artist whose only bio was linked to Pinterest. This phobia of nudity or nude photography being considered pornography almost has the opposite intent: de legitimizes formats with the best “intentions” for random queries with no sense of values, aesthetics, social, or otherwise. Access to art is more important ultimately I am learning in this strange social experiment of internet media shuffle fraught with so much garbage. What we permit in terms of violence in both media and society, in pornographic policy making should be of greater concern than exposure to the many forms the human body presents as a muse and as artistic expression itself. As was always the case, Art follows nature. And if not, it is our nature. So silly and tiring does this game then become. I can’t participate in something so full of itself that pretends to be on a higher ground only to literally cover its buttocks ( breast’s, vagina, etc...). Maybe there was something I missed, but it seemed like a very deliberate decision and as a store of images, art, commerce, I can’t in good conscience support it..Version: 7.2
Love Love Love Pinterest, FYI Version 7.41.2 BugI love Pinterest. I’ve been using it almost every day for over 7 years. Love the App! It’s only gotten. Better Love the content and the concepts! I love the algorithm, always shows me perfectly related searches and ideas for crafts for look books! I’m able to collaborate with people and create coordinated projects. I use it for vision boarding my goals, picking an outfit in the morning, and putting together my dreams! It’s very easy to use! Very forgiving of any mistakes I make with my fat fingers.
One bug. In version 7.41.2 the app keeps freezing on me. I’ll be scrolling and my screen will freeze and the app will, after a couple minutes of fighting, shut down. Or I’ll be in a post and it’s just unresponsive. When this happens I usually close it, open another app and it’s working fine, my phone isn’t frozen so I give Pinterest a moment and it works again but it’s been happening almost every time I open the app! Never got a bug like this that lasted this long, usually you guys are good at sending updates to catch them in time before I loose my mind.
Update soon please!!
Keep up the good work.Version: 7.41.2
How my day just gets better!Since really joining Pinterest, not just sneaking onto the site now and then, I have become a bigger person in heart and soul. Not just counting the extra fat on my bottom that seems to grow bigger and bigger because of the ‘Rona virus and me just sitting on it. Any fat around my waist is also because of the that virus but here I need to put blame where blame is due. ON ME! But just a little on Pinterest too...because I become glued to the site for hours on end, looking at pictures of wonderful foods...I swear they just leave the internet screen and absorb right into my body. Really it doesn’t happen that way. Joking people, just joking. But not about the becoming absorbed in the subject matter. It is such a wonderful site that takes me away from everything for awhile. Thank you Pinterest, a heartfelt thank you for all the deliciousness I see, the beautiful art, the intricate sewing, the gorgeous quilting and paperwork, the ‘everything’ to see with just the tap of a button. How fortunate we are to view things from our very own country and the countries of other like individuals. What an honor. I am honored. Thank you..Version: 9.0
Please STOP the Bad RedesignsI love Pinterest and I use it almost every day—which is the only reason I’m taking the time to write this review. Seems like (pretty major) changes to the UI/UX have been constant recently. It’s frustrating to have to figure out the differences so frequently. Beyond that, they’re just strange. It continues to get more difficult/complicated to add a new pin at all (even more so from a web link)—why would you redesign something that makes features of your app more frustrating to use? Especially when you push the browser button so heavily for use on desktops... why make the closest equivalent on the mobile app so hidden and take so many extra “taps”? Visually, the design of the individual pin view is just so odd and nonsensical to me. Why does each section need to be so entirely separate? Why waste so much space with these huge rounded corners? It makes it a visually cluttered experience. Also, sometimes I want to pin a particular image to multiple boards because it fits in multiple places for me. Recent updates have made doing so more difficult and frustrating. I guess maybe I’m in a minority for that one, but generally taking a scolding/patronizing tone with your users seems like a poor choice..Version: 7.36
This app is the BEST app ever for boomers like meThis app has changed my life by becoming a lit boomer as my kids say. I learned how to hit the whip and now i do it everywhere I go and even hit the whip on my lit kids. This app has taught me how to make some baller chocolate chip cookies and ever since i learned how to make these baller chocolate chip cookies my kids say “ I am the best boomer mom ever. “ This app also taught me how to do tik tok dances like Charli D’Melio and Addison Rae. I now do the renegade in public and get told I am crazy but i alwyas tell the people sorry you can’t be a lit boomer like me. I even learned new bedroom ideas like Teenage Mutant Turtles bedrooms to Lighting Mcqueen bedrooms for my son who is failing classes.( My son is 20) I learned new ideas like bedrooms for my daughter who is 28 and has NO JOB and the ideas are like Little mermaid bedrooms and Princesses Bedrooms. I even learned new songs like No Idea by Don Toliver and Out West by Travis Scott and btw those songs slap as my kids would say. This is my end of my review and my name is Karen and I am a lit boomer and I would like to tell everyone on Pinterest that you are lit and cool and Pinterest is the best app. Thank you..Version: 8.7.1
Visual search paradiseAs a visual person, Pinterest is a remarkable resource for seeking out really anything my heart desires. I used to “google” things when I had a question, but as far as quick answers are concerned, Pinterest is definitely my go to.
From recipes, crafts, building ideas and pure scrolling entertainment, it is a fantastic venue to save and catalog your ideas. I love how blogs and businesses can share their best practices and products directly to their actively looking audience.
As you can tell by the magnitude of my pins, I have found more than I was looking for! I love Pinterest and think they carved a perfect niche for themselves out of the bustling infrastructure of the web and I am glad they did.
If I could change anything, I would get rid of the new system of uninvited ads bombarding the search content, especially the oversized video plugs. They litter the searches and belittle the organic marketing that has been fostered here.
I still enjoy the purpose and function of the platform and appreciate the ease at which I am able to find what I need... now back to figuring out what to do with cantaloupe seeds..Version: 7.34
I love it but hope the developer reads thisI love Pinterest. I love the craftiness, the free patterns, recipes, and DIY stuff! Truly, Pinterest has given me weeks’ worth of sewing patterns for doll clothes, helped me kill ants and fruit flies, and FINALLY get a smeary film of a huge mirror. I just have one request. We used to be able to report broken links. That has disappeared, with at least the last few updates. Now we can report pins, for all manner of politically correct reasons (bullying, harassment, etc.), yet can’t just tell you when it doesn’t work. In my years using Pinterest, I have only ever had three types of reports to make: when a link is broken; when it sends you to a page that does not contain what you asctally clicked on; or my biggest beef— when the pin promises free pattern or instructions, and you click on it and wade through a dozen ads, only to reach the comment at the bottom, “Sorry, tha pattern is no longer available for free!” Those pins should be reported and their content pulled. I don’t appreciate false advertising. And Pinterest does not even let users report those things. Thanks for listening..Version: 6.60
Love Pinterest ❤️❤️❤️Amazing inspiration for literally everything in life!.Version: 6.34.1

Du gros bonheurOn m'a dit un jour "quand ça va pas bien, mets des belles images dans ta tête".....Pinterest sert a ca ! Mais il permet aussi quand ça va bien, de rêver, de se remplir la tête de beaux projets et de défis les plus stimulants, les uns des autres.
Je suis une fan finie !! 😁.Version: 6.34.1
Cant scrollSomething is wrong with Pinterest. When I try to save something to a specific board, it won’t let me scroll to the one I want. What I mean is that it won’t lemme choose from all of the boards. It will just let me choose from the three that the app chose which is random. Please fix this!!!.Version: 8.44
LOVE it!!!!!All the varieties it has to offer and especially all those FAB recipes!!!.Version: 6.34.1
PinterestI love Pinterest to get daily inspiration also inspire others and mostly to share the wonderful things I find but I wish sometimes the page won’t reload and scroll back to the top. They should have button that will bring you back to the pin you were looking at. Other than this one little thing I love Pinterest!!!!!.Version: 8.6
RecipesInteresting and varied recipes something for everyone’s appetites I’m sure..Version: 9.13
Shop the lookIt was not enough to pack our feeds with gigantic ads, now every pin has multiple links all over. Pinterest used to be great..Version: 9.20
Fix thisI love this app but recently whenever i press on a pin and then go back to look at the other ones, my whole page refreshes, even when i’m looking at my own boards! i would appreciate it if this problem was looked into and solved!!!.Version: 8.30
REPLIES WON’T SHOWI can’t see replies on comments; if I tap on a ‘see 18 replies’ button, it only shows 9 replies. I can’t even hold a simple conversation in the comments section anymore.
I didn’t have any of these problems before you decided to update it again. Yeah, why is it that none of the updates seem to fix anything? All I’m asking is that you either reply to this review with some advice, or fix your app. I’m not the only one having this problem..Version: 9.10
Everything thing else seems to work right, but...Problem I have. Some replies I can click on to open up, and some I can’t.
Here’s an example: I made a comment, and I decided to continue what I wrote by replying to my OWN comment. Probably a day or two later, I CAN’T OPEN IT! It doesn’t respond, and the only way it sort of reacts is when I hold my finger on it but still doesn’t open! Please fix this!.Version: 9.8
Won't let me view repliesI really like the app, but occasionally it just... won't let me look at replies to comments.Version: 9.8
Ads constantly interrupting my musicI really love the app, but i’m quite annoyed by the ads always stoping my music so that they can play whenever i’m scrolling throught anything! Even if i’m scrolling quite fast it just mute my music before putting it back on.Version: 8.37
Amazing, but needs improvements.I’ve been using this app for a very long time & it has always been useful, helpful & overall a phenomenal app. My only issue is that recent the app has been unbelievably glitchy. When I try to look at or save a pin, it glitches out and completely refreshes the page. It’s even crashed once or twice. Love this app a lot but needs bug fixes. Otherwise, amazing..Version: 8.30
🌸💕This app is one of the best things to ever happen to me!!! i just wish it didn't crash after a while and there was an option to save multiple files to a board at once. Nevertheless it is a great app like what are you doing with your life if you don't have pinterest. ;).Version: 8.2.1
Great until the Latest UpdateNot a fan of the latest update.. . It doesn’t give me a chance to scroll and look at anything.
Please fix..Version: 8.30
Great app but needs an update, glitchyI send a lot of time on this app, it’s fantastic. It often glitches though and I will have to close and reopen it. Kind of frustrating..Version: 7.41.2
