Pinterest has recently launched their series of apps for both the Android and iOS systems and I immediately got my hands on the Pinterest app for the Android to see how well it worked with my ASUS Transformer TF300T.

Installation was, as is to be expected, stupidly easy and quick via Google Play. To access to app you do need to have a Pinterest account, fortunately you can get one via the app, and you can sign in via either Facebook or Twitter. It’s worth noting here that the app is free and that it syncs neatly across all your devices so any pins you add here will be reflected across your mobile phones and the website itself.

Navigation is pretty simple. On the top left you can use the Android Search icon to find other sites or pins of interest and beneath that is the Create pin icon. Tapping that gives you a pop-up box which asks you to either Take photo or Choose photo and you just follow the onscreen instructions to add a pin to your board this way.

Tapping the profile image on the top right takes you to your pinboard where you can tap on Follwers or Following to see who’s doing what, or you can tap on the cogwheel icon to adjust your Settings. The latter allows you to Find Facebook friends, Invite friends and decide how you login or access Support. Tap the arrow on the right of your picture and name on this page to be taken to your boards where you can play around with your current pins for a while.

As yet the app remains a little basic with still no guidance on how to install the Pin It bookmarklet on an Android device. While the app has been launched, the documentation hasn’t caught up yet but I’m sure that they’ll soon iron out all the kinks. At least they’ve made the app!
