Pinboard for Pinterest (Free) by Silviu Stefan is a Pinterest client for the iPad. It may just be the best Pinterest-related app for Apple’s tablet so far. It doesn’t revolutionize viewing of the social networking site, but it does work well and it is free.
The app offers three different ways to pin, as well as complete access to your Pinterest account. The account access is just a port of the website, so there is nothing special with that. However, the pin options are what make it stand out, that and the fact that it is free.
In addition to an easy way to add the Pinterest bookmarklet to the Safari browser, users can upload images by entering a website link into the “Pin It” URL bar. This part is no different than what can be done directly from the Pinterest website. It is nice to have it, but by no means special.
The third way to pin images is to use the app’s internal browser. This browser comes with its own “Pin It” button that works perfectly. Use the Internet the same way you would in Safari, or any other browser and when you come across something you’d like to add to your Pinterest board, just hit the “Pin It” button in the upper right corner.
The fact that users can pin in three different ways, plus have complete access to their Pinterest account makes this iPad app amazing. The fact that it is free makes it the best app you can get for Pinterest thus far. Pick it up today. You won’t regret it.
Ever since I got an iPad, I’ve found myself surfing the ‘net a lot more here than on my own computer. The only thing wrong is that my various bookmarklets are a whole lot more difficult to use in mobile Safari. Now with this new Pinterest app (PInboard), adding new pins will be far easier. They provide you with a better bookmarklet and even a browser. I’m looking forward to playing with it.
