Mrs. Hoffman - Pinterest is the jack of all trades
So 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!
Emu taco's - Love the app, hate the updates
I 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
Rosycheeks13 - Best thing ever
Thanks 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!
Tl333333:: - 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!
Beachinnbum - Pinterest user since 2011
I 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!
Fionajuliana - None of my comments are being saved to my pins!
I mostly love Pinterest and the app, but there is definite room for improvement. Severely dislike the new way to search! Please go back to the way it was before this last update. Also, the constant refreshing means that as soon as I focus on a pin I might want to click on it’s gone. Please allow us Pinners to manually refresh our feed! Probably my biggest complaint is the lack of ability to edit the title or description of the pins we pin via the app. It was there and now exists only on the full site. Now I’m having to go back through EACH pin I’ve saved in the last few weeks and edit EVERY ONE on my computer. PLEASE fix this! The comments are where we, as Pinners, get to add our own thoughts to the ideas we are pinning and it’s the way we can search our own pins to find the ones we’ve saved. It is an essential function of the pinning process! That is the point right? To actually use the pins we save? Looking forward to having this bug squashed soon! Lastly, if I could have Pinterest the way I really liked it best I would return the like button and remove the tried button. I don’t really care who has tried a pin that I save. If I needed to gather several ideas quickly I would go through and like several pertinent pins so they were saved and go back to pin them later when I had time to add my own descriptions. Feeling nostalgic just now! Please bring back the likes! Thanks!
Coatesse - Increasingly disappointed with the app
Edit/Update: while the constant crash was eventually fixed (thank you) there is the issue of the auto-refresh on the home page. Please fix this. In former versions of the app you would have to manually refresh by pulling down on the home page and it would show new/different ideas to save. Now it autofreshes even if I minimize the app and come back, switch apps and come back, or when I toggl between home and the search, friends, and ‘my boards’ screens. I constantly loose sight of ideas I have for my home or recipes for my newly diabetic partner. And when I go to history the past pins I’ve viewed not only are the ones I had to physically tap on but the links to the limited pins aren’t live to take me back to them. Can’t pin things I can’t see.
Increasingly disappointed with the app as the quality of the user experience has declined with recent updates. The app crashes with each use. In the last two weeks alone I’ve needed to exit and reopen the app with every use, even with the most up to date version of the app. To add, advertisements now appear about every three pins, which decreases the ease of use of the app. When scrolling right to left, unrelated “pins” (advertisements) every three pins is very annoying especially when seeking specific content instead of casual browsing. I see the effort on aesthetic aspects of the app, however, these cannot be fully appreciated when the operation of the app falls short of pleasurable.
Kahleelee - ALL Ads & Algorithm. NO (real) friends
The 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.
77 and still learning - Open mind
As 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!
happy65390 - Used to love it
This 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.
UnicornBuckeye - 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!
Guardrock - Suggestion to the app developers
I 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.
Minecraft1207 - 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.
crb022 - Over all the stuff that I don’t follow but am forced to look at!
I use to love Pinterest. It was my favorite. I chose what I wanted to look at. Then they started changing things and changing things more and more. Made us have to look at their stupid ads and suggested posts. Now it has gotten to the point to where 90 percent of everything is ads and suggested posts-guess what I don’t want to see what you have suggested. I want to see what I want to see-what I chose to follow. There is no way to remove the crap and even if you report and remove the incessant ones, they just add that many more. Here’s a little tip-I do not want to see and have no interest in pins that are in a foreign language and I have to look at them constantly. So I’m really getting over Pinterest. Add in the fact that I can’t see who pins what anymore-I like seeing when the people I follow that I like have pinned something but now I can’t tell because it’s blank where a user use to be listed. Every update it gets worse and I find myself getting on Pinterest less and less. I am quickly losing my interest in Pinterest. They need to go back to letting people control what they look at. I could understand having some ads but the amount of content on my board that I didn’t follow has gotten way out of control. If it doesn’t get any better and I keep getting pins in foreign languages then I will just quit using it. I hope it improves soon. If not then I will stop using it.
Ima star who eats other stars - I cant see new ideas anymore, it makes me not get on this app like ever
My favorite part of this app was the fact that I could go to explore and find new ideas, hence why I always have so many boards. New ideas would pop up in the explore and i would love it and go crazy looking for new ideas from pinterest by looking through the explore every chance I got but you guys got rid of the explore. Now when i click one pin even by accident i get 50 more pins for the exact same pin. Sometimes It would be one simple recipe of pie and now i have 30 of them everyday. So then you guys created an option where I can not get specific suggestions from what I clicked but even when I unfollow what I clicked it doesnt matter because my feed is literally still exact suggestions from my boards I created. So i feel like i dont get anywhere with this app. I am literally on instagram all the time because I can see different new things not different versions of the same thing especially ones I pinned already. Its fine when im searching for something but after a while I get the point and I get off the app. I wont even bring up the ads. Sorry but Im done with this app. I sure i wont be the last. Your new users dont know what their missing but seeing the same sweater everyday will get boring for them too eventually. Bring back explore so we can see new ideas, stop thinking i want to see 80 different versions of a pink Christmas tree.
OrchidGirl60 - 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.
Tgdovic2 - 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.
Noryie - following
the 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.
JillianAbigaleM - 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!
3WAgirl - The Algorithms Have Really Gone Downhill
I have used Pinterest for over ten years. I have loved this app/website. There is nothing else like it. Over the last couple of years, though, my feed quality has really suffered. I used to see new pins based on every one of my interests, which I had carefully cultivated. I could go months without seeing the same pin twice, and my feed was full of variety and color. Now, my feed seems to be based only on recent activity, so if I only pin to three boards over a few days or a week, I will only see content related to those three boards with maybe 1/20 being outside of those topics. If I only pin from my home feed, that means that I’m reinforcing this funnel until my home feed looks the same every single day. If I pass over a pin without saving it, it can show up in my feed again and again, making things feel stale. I’ll also see pins related to topics I don’t like, but even though I hide it, that topic will show up in my feed again and again as if I had never touched it. Also, when I do a search I’ll only get a few pages’ worth of related pins before it starts looking like my home feed, with results that have nothing to do with what I’m searching for. I still use the app because there’s no other available resource like it, but it’s no longer my favorite place for inspiration.
LizDWeaver - Too many ads! Deleting after 10+ years
I have used Pinterest for over 10 years and just deleted it permanently. Literally every 3rd “pin” (or picture) is an advertisement for some company or brand that has nothing to do with what I’ve pinned or with my interests. There is no way to turn ads off or to see less ads. You’re way better off just going to Google to get ideas.
They used to have a ‘categories’ option where you could choose Art, Beauty, Crafts, Recipes, etc. but they removed it completely. This makes no sense and makes it very difficult to navigate the app. Removing this feature also makes it nearly impossible to find new content ~ isn’t that why Pinterest was created in the first place? For new ideas and inspiration?
I used Pinterest for art inspiration but this became increasingly difficult to obtain to the point where I couldn’t find anything new or interesting.
But there were always tons of new, irrelevant ads and videos from companies! I also NEVER see what people I follow pin anymore ~ it’s ALL “suggested” pins from Pinterest which are based off of a single picture I pinned. So if you pin a picture of, say, a cute plant holder, the next time you log onto Pinterest your entire feed is pictures of plants and ads for teeth whitening kits (?!).
I’m sad that a great idea for a creative app has been ruined but it has. Save yourself a headache and go to Google images.
Secondwind888 - The new layout is so ugly
I 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.
Clrbr77 - Good, but Inconsistent
I love pinterest and I think the new layout is quite interesting... However, there are many essential qualities of this app that I’ve carried issues with for a long time now. The inconsistency of their effectiveness, for one, is major. Sometimes I’ll get a notification on my phone saying someone has commented or saved one of my pins... But after opening the app and checking the notifications tab I’ll find nothing at all. This doesn’t always happen but usually it does and I find it super annoying.
Another example of this issue with inconsistencies— or perhaps simply an issue in general—is when I DO manage to receive a notification from someone liking or responding to my comments on pins. Upon clicking on this notification I am not directed to the actual pin itself— but merely a non-interactive image of the pin with the comment section below it. Once again, it doesn’t always happen but is especially frustrating when I want to save this pin to another board or perhaps haven’t saved it at all and wish to do so... Yet I am unable to and my only resort is to take a screenshot and search it up on my own terms. (Even then it’s almost always unsuccessful.)
Like I said, Pinterest is a great app with good means— but it is small annoyances like the ones aforementioned that keep me from calling it perfect.
ncmtngirl60 - 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.
Doggie121 - Love Pinterest, Not Updates
I 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.
Lisa Andresen - Not the same anymore
I’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?
mmmattieee - Love Love Love Pinterest, FYI Version 7.41.2 Bug
I 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
Tip o' kneel - Unnecessarily censored
It 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.
lexzeppelin - Starting to dislike Pinterest overall
This is more about Pinterest itself than the app. Every fourth or so pin in my feed is an ad now, so the platform is pretty much useless to me because all I can think about as I’m scrolling is if I’m looking at another ad or not because I kept accidentally clicking them, which then takes me to the ad provider’s website page and away from my Pinterest feed. This to me almost feels like a strategy Pinterest is using: more ads = more people clicking the ads = more revenue. While I understand the mindset behind ad revenue and don’t disagree with it, Pinterest incorporates way too many ads to the point that it’s excessive and not as fun of a platform as it used to be. I can barely look at the pins by users I wanted to actually follow without seeing the same ads over and over again. I don’t know if it’s as many ads on the computer or not, but I definitely won’t be using this app again anytime soon.
I’m disappointed in what Pinterest has become, and a happy medium needs to be found for how many ads are in user feeds. I’ll be using Instagram as my source of learning about new products and experiences from now on, benefits I used to get from using Pinterest. While Instagram has ads, they aren’t nearly as frequent and irritating as those on Pinterest.
Karen The Boomer - This app is the BEST app ever for boomers like me
This 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.
tispeaches - I love Pinterest but this is getting annoying
So Pinterest is an amazing app and I love it but some things on here really need to be worked on. I use this app every day to get inspiration for all sorts of things and while I’m looking through pins and I find one I like I’ll click on it to look at it in more detail and the entire app will freeze. So then I have to restart the app and even then it’s stupid because the pin I liked and was looking at is no longer there anymore. Next, when I go to post in a community I’ll click on the “start a discussion..” text bar and the the app will crash and take me back to my home screen. I’ve done everything I could to see if maybe it was just my phone, but no, it’s the app. It crashes when I go to post in communities, every time.🙃 lastly, I’ll be on my feed or whatever tab and then suddenly the screen turns completely white and all the pins and everything off my feed disappears. Normally I can fix this by going to another tab and then going back to the tab that was blank and then it’ll work fine, but it’ll automatically reload the page and the pins I was looking at before the screen turned blank aren’t there anymore. like I said. I love this app, but this is getting real annoying, real quick. Kinda makes me wanna delete it sometimes.
Apple Lover in Atlanta - I love it but hope the developer reads this
I 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.
hvc10a - Please STOP the Bad Redesigns
I 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.
Ms. Karyssa - Visual search paradise
As 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.
WarHorseFilly - Don’t like new changes
I love Pinterest, but it’s getting ridiculous. Me and my friend spend all day messaging pins back in forth, but since the new spam rules have been set, I can only send 2 things to her before I get blocked. Here’s how it works, if they get annoyed with me, have an option where they can block me, DONT JUST DO IT FOR THEM! And what is with the ads and pins that I’m not even into? Are you even trying anymore Pinterest? Just cause I’m fat doesn’t mean every other ad should support plus sized women’s clothing(which I’ve never looked up on Pinterest so how they even figured out I’m plus sized is a mystery to me) and just because I like a certain topic doesn’t mean I don’t want to see pins from other boards that don’t always see eye to eye with me. That’s why I used to love Pinterest so much, because I could follow boards by other users with similar tastes, and if I wanted to explore into other people’s boards, I’d type something into search like “horses” and look at the pins, found user I liked and followed their boards so their stuff would pop up more in my feed. Please get back on you A game Pinterest! I’ll take this post down when you fix the spam thing!
User40450 - Pinterest Problems - Sep 2017
After pinterest updated on the 28th I’ve been having an irrevocably troublesome time quickly pinning things to my own boards. The feature that’s activated through pressing and holding a pin pulls up several smaller icons that allow for different functionality. I’ve become accustomed to pressing and holding to immediately put something onto a board because everything used to be familiar. Now after the update, the main feed has several new icons that appear alongside the previous ones when pressing and holding, and because of this, I have permanently hidden pins that I would’ve originally added to my boards because apparently, SOMEBODY thought it was a good idea to put the “HIDE PIN” icon in the exact same location as the previous “SAVE PIN”icon.
Further more, there appears to be no clear and straightforward way to undo any of the hidden pins which is frustrating for me, someone who has gotten used to pinterest’s old way of doing things! Lol
Pinterest is a fine app for inspiration but the interface definitely needs to be rethought again.
TuTPie - Gets worse with every update
Another major update and more changes that make zero sense. Why is that camera on the search bar?!? So frustrating to hit it every time I tap in that space to edit my search. But my major frustration is WHY DID YOU MAKE IT SO CUMBERSOME TO SEE COMMENTS AND PHOTOS?!? If i pick comments I don't want to see comments and then have to select again to see more comments. I don’t know who is making these decisions but I have a hard time believing they ever actually us this app.
Original review: I was happy to see other complaining about some of the changes to Pinterest over time that have become sooo frustrating, but the one thing that really drives me nuts is the search function. I search for something rather specific "vintage shampoo bottles" and all I get in return are clothing pins and home design pins. Nothing at all related to my search? What the hell happened? It used to be fun to search on Pinterest but I guess I'll have to go back to google image searches to avoid all of your sponsored crap. If you need money just ask us to pay to remove ads for Pete's sake.
Nick_awesome13 - This Pinterest is doing better
Pinterest is a great place to look at images and find new ideas. However with every update you never know what is going to change for the better or worse. The last couple have been for the better, but before that it seemed like many of the updates took away something I enjoyed about the app unexpectedly. I like the change back to showing who saved each pin on my main dash. I also appreciate the new board sections. I do not mind the picked for me pins to some extent, but I prefer the pins from the boards I have followed. I didn't like it when they changed the way a pin would show how many times someone save a pin from a specific board to all the boards that it has ever been saved to, but I got used to it and it turned out to be better. However taking that away helps no one. I do not care how many times a pin has been saved if I can't see what boards it has been saved to. I would appreciate it if the updates told me what was changing. I don’t like being scared to update because I have no idea when there is going to be another change that will go against my enjoyment of the app.
AnDJ82 - Too many ads and unrelated content
Update 2/7/20: now, I can’t even use the app to PIN things, the entire purpose of the app, because the share button is not working, and whatever idiot is in charge of updates also removed the add from website option directly on the app. If I knew of something else like this app, I would use it instead. PINTEREST, you need to look back at how your app was about 2 years ago, and reformat it that way. It was better. People miss it. Every update for the past year has been a change for the worse.
Ever since the last 2 or 3 iPhone updates, this app crashes every time I go to one of my own boards. If I actually open a pin in my feed, when I go back it refreshes and I lose whatever I wanted to look at next. I’m often hesitant to actually pin things because my feed will show me anything and everything the algorithm thinks relates to it whether I want it or not. They have rendered following boards you like nearly useless, as the following feed is just one big picture after another rather than like a pin board so you can’t really see what’s going on. I’d rather see it in the same format as my regular feed as their pins are what I actually want to see. And FFS can it stop showing me the same crap over and over again after I’ve already said it wasn’t relevant to me?
Cole1883 - Advertisement links are too sensitive
I like Pinterest for the most part, but when I am scrolling through and swiping the screen to do so, if my finger touches an add, it opens up instead of continuing to just scroll along. Very annoying! The adds are mixed in with all of the other pins, but they are clearly designed to open much more easily than the regular pins. Regular pins don’t open up accidentally just from scrolling along. This bothers me because of how everything we do on our devices is tracked and recorded so these companies can try to build a history of our interests to try to target us with adds. So When I am unintentionally opening adds that I don’t care about, I am being targeted with adds that don’t pertain to me. In other words, the digital history of what I click on is distorted, and therefore, whoever is collecting this data is not getting an accurate depiction of me. It’s a glitch in the matrix. They are taking the greedy approach and forcing adds onto us that we don’t want, and over time it will mess up their targeting system. This is probably why as a 35 year old male, I get adds trying to sell me products for menopause.
dragons yo - i love this app, but the updates...
listen, i use this app almost daily and i really love the variety of all the content i could find! and one of the latest updates could allow you to switch between two or more accounts, which is all i had wanted for the longest time (i have a school account for projects and a personal one for my own interests). great! right?
but as soon as i switched back to my personal account, the algorithm just GAVE UP on me. it was only makeup, nothing that was from any of my followers, i couldn’t understand what was happening.
i went to my settings and removed “makeup” from my interests (apparently that was the only one i had), thinking my feed would go back to normal and suggest things i liked that were similar to the previous things i saved.
my feed is now blank. if i want to find content similar to my boards, i’d have to search for similar pins to something i already have. it’s less convenient and i don’t want to reselect the things i’m into. my school account has no problem with this! therefore, i know it’s a bug. please fix it.
Jessicarnahan87 - After all the feedback it doesn’t seem they care.
So much spam now. So many stolen pins for super spammy web sites. Over all its a good app but they seem to make things worst every time this app gets updated. This last update left me with three “all pins” boards that you cant get rid of. The suggestions have gotten better, but again the main issue is there is just so many bad pins on here now.
Update: There are now 8 “all pins” boards. Just did an update this morning. I also noticed that now eBay, walmart, and target are stealing pins and when you click to go to the post it takes you to their site instead. Also, tic toc ads are everywhere. No matter how many times I say I'm not interested it still shows up in my feed. I cannot begin to explain how much I don't care about tic toc and no matter how many times it pops up, I'm not clicking the link or saving the pin. Also, Pinterest almost seems pointless if you are using it for a blog since its hard to tell if an interested pinner will actually see anything you post. So for that reason ive taken away a star and will continue to until things are actually fixed or it seems they are taking their users feedback seriously.
p.heider - One of my favorite apps!
I love Pinterest, but I’ve noticed lately that whenever I try to save a pin, it doesn’t always recommend the right boards. Like what I mean is I will scroll down my home feed and save like 5+ pins to my Tom Holland board (lol) but then if I save like one Steven Universe pin I have to scroll all the way down to that board because other random boards are recommended for me and save it there. And then if I try to save another Tom Holland pin, it STILL won’t recognize that I’m saving a pin of him and I have to scroooooll all the way down again. I know I probably sound very high maintenance saying this, but around two months ago, I never had this problem. It just appeared recently. It’s still one of my favorite apps, but this has made it sort of annoying. I used to be able to save anything from Lapel Pins, to Steven Universe, to Drawings, to Funny, and they would be the top suggested boards. It’s not like most of my boards are new, which I was thinking may mess up whatever algorithm they’re using because the app needs to get adjusted to that new board. I just don’t know, but it’s not like he problem prevents me from using the app, so I’m good.
Mikeadj - My Pinterest.
I love the Pinterest website. I love to cook, and I love fashion. I think it's great to not have to have to thumb through lots of books for great ideas. There's even videos showing how things work. The fashion in men's clothing is great! So much is affordable too! I'm always ready to review products. If there's one thing I really had to do to get things right was the sizing. I so much wanted my shirt I wanted, but it was a bit small, for example. I guess some of the clothes you have to figure the size for yourself. Clothes it seems are a different size if their made in Korea vs made in America. Some things I've seen I don't even have a clue what the numbers indicate, but I have seen both. It may have been my fault not finding another size chart. I learned to be really careful when I order. I do appreciate their making it simple to return items. Anyway, I'm getting better ordering online. Some things do seem to take a while, and if you get the wrong size, we'll ya just ain't happy. Of course no problem with food. Groceries right around the corner. I hope this was helpful. Peace!
Dancer4ever2005 - Very frustrated
So I used to love Pinterest but I’m so frustrated right now. I’ve been emailing their support thingy for multiple days now and the lady is trying to help but she’s either not understanding what I’m saying or can’t help me (bless her heart, she’s trying). I put my notes from school on Pinterest and one of them got over 600 saves. I hadn’t updated my app in a while so to check all I had to do was scroll to the bottom of the pin and it said “600.” But then I made the mistake of updating the app and now I have absolutely no way to view my number of saves. The support lady told me to make it a business account, which I did, and now I can only see the number of saves within a 90d/30d/7d/24hr time frame. But no matter what I do, it says 0 saves. I had 600 saves and now I have 0?! What the heck? I’ve been asking her multiple times where I can check to see the true number of saves but she keeps avoiding the one question I need answered. I do not believe it’s her fault, I believe the app developers made a bad decision and she has no control over it... so please please please please put the total number of saves back at the bottom of the pin near the comments for personal accounts because I hate having a “business account” and still not being able to see my number of saves. Okay, that’s all, thanks...
ZeekyH - Needs better tagging options
I have been enjoying this app a lot, and currently have 8000 pins in 63 different boards/sections. I have been exposed to all kinds of new craft techniques and aesthetic inspirations. Despite the antisocial nature of the app that other reviewers mention, I have found the algorithms to be very useful so long as a suitably descriptive query is used as a starting point. My only complaint is that your tagging functions are absurdly primitive. Because I cannot search for tags by board or section, I do not bother with them. This dampens the ability of my pinboard to be a tailored, searchable image database. But it also limits Pinterests’ overall web traffic, because fewer people bother to add descriptive words to their pins. Why bother? They can’t be queried in any meaningful way. Also, an entirely separate field in the description, solely for tags, would make things even better. Paired with a batch selection tool so I could add tags to multiple photos simultaneously, this would be an ideal tagging system. Seriously, how can you folks neglect something so vital? I hope to hear from someone, I am extending the benefit of the doubt that there is a human on the Pinterest team who reads these reviews regularly.
BPV1981 - The era of grimy & deceit google sell outs!
Pinterest used to be amazing 1. Ability to like posts, gone why?
2. Privacy settings are a complete lie! Suggested for you is on off mode yea right , go back later after doing some pinning or searches and Bam there they go suggesting the things you recently looked at!
3. Major GRUNT! Why the heck can't they have things in their exclusive category ie: search any ethic group for the sole purpose of interest in said groups items, life styles & things etc and BAM THERES BECKY
::: hands up emoji::: why? , you can simply put copy cat Becky with her wanna be braids in her own category , hello she's not African anything so why is she there? If the search was black girls with braids! Not girls with braids! Why the tanning products & Caucasian things &/ or people within every BLACK PEOPLES STUFF SEARCH I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND ! If I looked in opposite category ya might see one person of color and that's a stretch to say the least. 4. Search suggested instead of -pop up stating to search exactly what you've typed, huh what? Is this nosy app retarded and blind ?!? Might have to tap out , FB, IG, Pinterest etc everyone's turning into ppl stalking trash! 5. DO NOT SEND LIKES POSTS OF THINGS YOU'RE INTERESTED IN ETC TO ANYONE VIA THE PHONE APP THEY'LL HOLD THAT CONTACT HOSTAGE IN DEFIANTLY! With No way to remove them, next time you click share button there they will be grrrrrr!

MissAvya - Warning all Users
Warning to users: if you have a Pinterest account and you look at all your boards and everything you’ve placed on them, everything will look just as you wish. If you happen to have another Pinterest account and you log out of one and look at the other one, you will find a bunch of ads inserted on your boards which you never chose. This means that everyone who sees your boards will also see those ads which is why I have written the following review: (Pinterest, once a delight, now is all crap and used for advertising only. If you don’t believe me, look at your account as others see it and you will see what I mean but you have to log out of it and access at it from another account.)
Ads have been incorporated on my boards that I didn’t place there, totaling negating the Pinterest effect. My personal friends and those I’ve made on Pinterest have complained about this as well and how they were not asked or consulted before Pinterest itself decided to insert ugly these ads onto their boards (we ARE after all called “board owner”) without consultation. Pinterest has decided to become a total dictator by taking out the format and design of subscribers’, thus taking all pleasure from their usage.
Yes, indeed, Tumblr is the way to go, at least as it is now.
StitchyJen - Pinterest
The app has become so horrible. It has become so weirdly reactive. I like fall pictures - pretty leaves and trees. But they represent about 2% of my interests - literally one small board of my 50 or so boards. At some point though, Pinterest started suggesting fall pictures to me, and I made the mistake of pinning some. Now, my feed is 70% trees and leaves, about 28% ads, and about 2% other things. Another example - a few months ago, I was looking at boards of a woman I knew from high school, and she posted a ton of “country girl” sayings, so I scrolled through them. These are of little interest to me, but it was a genre I hadn’t seen and so I looked at them. Didn’t pin one, but now I get emails from Pinterest based on my love of “country girl” pins. What? Last night was the last straw. I went on the app and there was a sweet old poem from my childhood, so I pinned it. (It was about fall of course - see a rant #1!) One pin!! I got on this morning and guess what?! Feed of sweet little poems. I am an early adopter of Pinterest but I find the app unbearable. The online version is better but only because there is slightly more variety and it seems to skew toward my overall interests. Please fix this Pinterest. You were my favorite go-to app a few years ago.

1Redrose - PinterestLover
I have had Pinterest for more than three years now, and I love it. In fact, like many millions of others, I am a Pinterest addict. I haven’t been crazy about some of the changes made to the app, but I’m still pinning madly. I do have one comment to make though, about the age group for which Pinterest is recommended. I have seen images and content offensive to adults. Definitely not suitable for children under 15, and some, shouldn’t be viewed by anyone younger then 18. The new order of comment paragraphs is confusing, with the last at the top. Instinct is to read from the top of the page, but now you need to go down to find your first comment.I find it amusing that you inform me you’ve deleted a pic because of copyright, and show me a photo of a bowl of soup. What was the actual complaint about? The photo of a bowl of soup? The ingredients used to make the soup were stolen? Ha ha, guys, your random computer generated pics to send as cover for what you actually deleted, are hilarious. But when you send a pic of something I would not have pinned in a fit, that’s a bit disconcerting...
Stavronious - New lease of life
Having recently turned 40, married to the girls of my dreams, two young daughters and a fantastic job it felt like life couldn’t get any better and as a result I didn’t realize that I had started to let myself go. An introduction to Pinterest only 5 weeks ago has given me a new lease of life with already visible remarkable results! Initially slightly skeptical, I trialled simple ideas such as using my wife’s moisturizer and mix and match clothes I already owned based on articles I had read. With immediate positive feedback I have upped my game with small purchases to broaden my options in clothing and accessories, face wash and spf moisturizer, exercising small reps to tone up and even changed my posture at meetings. The results, from reading very easy to follow and understandable articles, have been astoundingly and positively visible and mentality rewarding. Thank you Pinterest!
Pix etch - Great app, but
Sometimes when attempting to scroll through a board after rearranging it, the scrolling is oddly difficult—significantly slower and more limited than usual, and when I stop touching the screen it scrolls up of its own accord. There doesn’t seem to be a reason for this.
The activity page is just awful. Not only do I now not get to see the boards to which my pins were saved, but now they’re swamped with recommended “related” pins—a feature I can already access from an excessive number of alternate means. Let me see the boards to which my pins were saved, and cut the recommendations in the activity feed. No one wants them there.
The process to reorder and personalise pins in their boards is cumbersome. To move a single pin I need to click it, click reorder, and then wait for the board to load, and then I have to scroll to find the pin, and only *then* can I move it—and after all that, the preview doesn’t show the end result of the change in the actual board itself, so you don’t know how it looks until you save it. This process used to be so simple; just a tap and hold to drag it into place. Why was it changed?
CGFE - Please stop changing things all the time
Weekly updates to fix the bugs is good but it’s really unnecessary to make little changes constantly. For one, I can’t refresh a board/section by dragging the page downwards anymore, because doing that now just closes the board/section and I have to reopen it to refresh it. Obviously that’s not a huge inconvenience but I just think it was better the other way. One big problem though is that for a couple of months now the app hasn’t allowed me to move more than one pin at a time. The option to select the pins I want to move is available but there was no button to actually move/delete them. Then last night that option finally appeared... and now it’s gone again just a day later. I really love Pinterest, and the app is, in my opinion easier to navigate than the desktop website, but all these constant little changes are annoying. You know the saying, don’t fix what isn’t broken. Aside from those little things, this is a really good app.
AntlersOfObsidian - Could do with some crucial fixes
Ok so I enjoy Pinterest for being able to organise a lot of pictures for inspirational stuff. However, since the update there seems to be a glitch where the screen appears as if it’s stuck between two pins, and I can only see half of the image and scroll underneath like normal. It’s hard to fix up again and I end up losing whatever images I wanted to use because restarting the app seems to be the only solution.
On top of that, there seems to be a seperate glitch where if you try to rearrange pins on a board, a single image might be flagged or glitchy in some way and you can’t rearrange any pins if that one is touched or moved at all, which leads to “error” and causing everything to go back to where it was, or crashing the app. I WOULD go back and delete the pin to prevent this, but there is no way if indicating which pin this is, or why it’s even doing this in the first place. It becomes tiresome quickly
Otherwise, fun app that accommodates to my need for visual stimuli
Hear me for i have spoken - High quality pictures, great team
Definitely an app I would recommend, both for social media and reference purposes. Great community, great users and great team.
The pictures on Pinterest are just different from those from Google images. You’re somehow able to find more quality pictures on Pinterest than on google, so I’ve found myself using Pinterest to look up references and etc stuff like that more often than google.
The help team, amazing, they solved my problem in one days and I was back on Pinterest just like that. My community tab wasn’t appearing, they gave me some tips, those tips didn’t work, I told them, and a few hours later bam, they send me an email saying they’ve worked out the problem and solved it, and indeed, my problem was solved. Fast reply and efficient.
dibee33 - All the descriptions and tags are invisible in the app
I rely on the descriptions and visible tags to know what my pins and others' pins are about and that's gone from the app. This makes all the pins useless to me because I can't see what the images are - they are just a group of images that I can't use. Can you PLEASE put the descriptions back and allow users to increase the area of text that's visible? Even on the desktop version most of the description is not visible on the board so I can't see what I need to make the item of the image at a glance. Please allow users to make choices and stop taking away the things that make Pinterest relevant and useful.
And the constant updating and the lack of any HELP for info on using the app or registering any complaints or feedback in the app is annoying.
Please fix the app so we can see what we’ve put as descriptions - five pictures of similar things are NOT worth 5000 words, the words are necessary to work out what the pins are. And allow help and feedback within the app.
a_random_dalek - I have three things that I would like fixed
First of all Pinterest has WAY to many adverts on it now. Every time I go onto Pinterest a million of the exact same ads just it me in the face and I don’t want to use Pinterest anymore because of it. The second thing is that when I try to zoom in on pins the screen just freezes and I have to go out of Pinterest in order to continue using it. The third and final thing is that when I try to reply to a comment, the ‘add’ button is covered up by the bar at the bottom of the screen. This is very annoying and means that I can’t reply to any questions or thank people for nice replies and stuff like that. I don’t like using the app as much anymore because it just isn’t what I would expect (nor want) from an app as big as Pinterest. really hope that these things get fixed and that I can enjoy your app once more. Hope you understand and help me to enjoy Pinterest again.
hooory - Something I don’t understand
To the developers of Pinterest: i have gotten an email from u guys and I understand but can u tell me which pins who removed? Because I just wanna know because some of it I didn’t save or maybe some else did. But thank u for getting in contact with me I understand there was a copyright issue even tho I didn’t know what or Which picture was it but if u can show me some of it than I will know it mine I save or someone hacked my account and post a copyright pictures or idk but again I am sorry for the copyright even tho i don’t know which pins but yeah I understand
anyways I love Pinterest even tho I have to delete my account for my own reasons. And thank you for making a app that is really fun and wonderful hope u read this
Gar_Loop - Love Pinterest
I've been enjoying Pinterest for a few years now and observed and in most cases enjoyed the changes the developers have given us. But there are a couple of things that I miss. One is the ability to search either Pinterest or the net for things of interest from the main search "spy glass" on my feeder page. Now I only have the option of searching Pinterest. Another is that when pinning I used to be able to see some of the history of the pin and who had pinned it previously. That gave me the opportunity of looking at those pinners and their boards to discover people and boards I may wish to follow. It is nowhere near as easy to discover this now. In regard to my own boards, I would love to be able to sort my boards into groups of similar subjects ... ie a main board with sub boards to keep all pins related to that topic together.
Rockinteabag - Love it! However...
I am completely in love with Pinterest. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t spend at least an hour or two scrolling through pins. However I and some of my friends are experiencing some problems, like not being able to send messages to each other directly in the inbox. And it seems we can’t send each other more than one pin within a span of 30 seconds because a notification pops up saying it’s trying to “combat spam” even though my friends and I are TRYING to spam each other with pins that we would absolutely love. I don’t know whether this is a bug problem in terms being unable to send each other message within the inbox section, but it would be very much appreciated if you would please look into these 2 issues so I and many of friends and other people can have the ultimate Pinterest experience. Thank you (:
Pimpedup - Good concept but slightly annoying
I enjoy the idea of Pinterest but mostly to create my own boards for my own reference. I make them public but have no collaborators because I prefer to maintain my boards myself. I find the “ideas you might love” section on my boards to be distracting and also alter how I want my boards to appear. I’ve tried but can’t find a way to switch them off or get rid of them and would really appreciate the option to do so.
Update: I keep asking for this option and I’m seriously frustrated at not being able to have my boards appear as I want them without input from Pinterest. I’d really appreciate YOUR FEEDBACK on why this seems to be mission impossible! I’m OCD and need my pins lined up in neat rows, even though I love the concept of Pinterest but I’m giving up on it soon, it’s doing my head in
womblespice - Constant Changing
I have been a Pinterest user since the very VERY early days- when it was by invitation only. There is no doubt that Pinterest was and still has the potential to be an amazing platform- but the constant changes to the experience are too much.
I was prepared to accept the annoying suggested pins repeatedly showing me things I’d already pinned... I was happy to accept sponsored posts...even the new full screen ones.
The “following” tab was a perfect compromise between Pinterest new and of old- but now on the mobile app you can only see one following image at a time, ensuring you spend no time with your “follow” community and forcing you back to the home page.
Once again Pinterest (badly) calls the shots with no regard to the users and their communities who built the platform to what it is.
Natalie ❤️🔥 - AMAZING (But.....)
I’ve had this app for about 2-3 years and it’s still great, the app is amazing for many reasons
-You can find literally anything for literally anything 😂
-Organisation is on point
-Never gets boring
-Updates get better and better! (But...)
I honestly love this app but... the new update is frustrating, when you tap on a pin and then press on it again ( If it doesn’t take you to a website that is) the ‘More like this’ banner (would u call it that?) Is annoying! If there’s a way to GET IT GONE, (Is there a way to turn that off in the app settings) help me please, or can you please just get rid of it, another problem is the section on the bottom of your screen ( the one where u can choose to go to your boards, look people on Pinterest up, or see notifications ) my does this thing were is raises itself higher when I press a pin, and then I’m stuck on searching pins and I can’t press off that option on that section. If there’s a way to stop this from happening do please help or am I doing something wrong? (May just be my phone or the app because it’s on my phone I don’t know)
Other than that I highly recommend getting the app!
yara abu hussein - Very very annoying bugs
There is this very annoying bug that I've dealt with ever since I first got Pinterest and it's where I'll be scrolling through with the pins in full view so that I can only see one at a time and then the app will just freeze and then crash just like that. And whenever I reopen it it's just stuck on one pin and I can't scroll anymore. I also got the app on my phone and a different bug happened where if I was scrolling like I was before then it would freeze and then it would repeat the last pins I just saw without me touching the screen. These bugs are very annoying and I've been using the app for almost a year now and these bugs have been there from the start.
Erin.C123 - Amazing App!!
This app can help you in many different aspects of life whether you are looking for simple healthy recipes, travel ideas, tips hacks, or inspiration! You have can search anything you want and it will show you what you are after. The thing I love most about this app is that you can create your own profile, so you are not only receiving inspiration, but also giving! You create many different boards with different topics depending on your own interests, this way other people can also find your profile and receive tips, guides, and many more. I definitely recommend this app to all people who are in need of a little inspiration in the lives!
Jill Mitchels - Suggestion please respond and consider
I absolutely love Pinterest and have used it for many years now, discovering new inspiration every day. The app really motivates me to do and fulfil certain things and I love the creativity in the apps design and idea. However, I would like to make a suggestion that would greatly benefit many users. When you click edit on a board you are given the option to merge boards where your pins and board name are moved to another board as a section in that board. Could you please make an option to move just the pins of a certain board to a new board without creating a section. It would make saving pins a lot easier and would greatly improve the satisfaction of the app. Please make it happen.
Angelhalo. 2 - Very disappointed with the latest updates
I was a very early user of Pinterest and have loved it for years using it as a great source of inspiration, resources and collection for ideas for my many interests. However the latest update with trying to use sections within a board are absolutely useless. One can spend ages ticking the pictures to move to a new section, only to find that the pictures have not moved and lo and behold one has to move the pictures again after ticking them again to move to the new section and finding the board from the alphabetical list! I have no idea why this new idea was implemented because it is absolutely useless. I like the idea of having subsections within a board so I could create smaller areas of interest but going back over a previous board that has been started has become a time-consuming task. Pinterest please fix this up ASAP!! Or you will have more disgruntled users.
Annqualise - Great, but could use some improvements
PLEASE MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE SECTIONS WITHIN SECTIONS OH MY GOD. I have talked to so many people about this and they all agree that it would make the app so much better. Every week I check to see if that was in the update but it never is. PLEASE consider.
The only other complaint I have is that the homepage always refreshes when I don’t want it to. If I’m in Pinterest and I get a pop up saying that my battery is low or there’s WiFi connections nearby, it will refresh. Or if I swipe down to see my phone notifications, Pinterest will refresh when I swipe back into the app. This even happens when I barely even swipe it down at all. Very annoying.
Other than those things, however, this is a great app and very addicting.
jacaranda place - Pinterest
On the whole ,ok, but don’t like it bouncing away from pins I am just trying to capture. Love the picture view, have bought stuff just on great photo looks, but having some issues with setting up my own business account. And some stores seem to overwhelm users with their multiple ads / pins.
However, biggest issue I have is while trying to set up business acct, it gives instructions to add metatag and html file, but the instructions when followed lead to message bar and external contacts only. Tried so many times that I finally deleted app and tried to reload it but Pinterest says my business email is taken by another user. THAT’S ME! Logging in from web browser gets me nowhere useful, so please contact me and sort this out, it is driving me crazy.
Scoobydoobyrooo - Pinterest is the best
I work with students at a Year 11 & 12 level, with varying degrees of capabilities in art Art class setting. This is the most incredibly valuable tool in order to support and increase inspiration in both my own personal art practice - and in order to explain and increase depth of thinking. Whether we are chasing black and white photographers, assemblage art and artists, meshing together a mix of ideas to come out with a cohesive end product - and of course inspiration. It is a great way to educate the many foibles and pitfalls of 'intellectual property' which up until now has been difficult to trace.
Pinterest is the ultimate.
LittleBirdy31 - I have been faithful but you have hurt my feelings.
Recently I got an email to say that a comment I had made on a pin was considered harassment and had been removed. I was warned about it again. I cannot recall ever intentionally harassing anyone and if someone took offence at something I said, at least I should be able to see the pin in question so that I can decide if my comment is truly mean or just someone being overly sensitive.
I have been on P since the beginning but I feel like quitting after this.
Also you say your policy is against nudity etc. But it is riddled with it.
So maybe before I get attacked get breaching the policy, you should just have a look at others who do as well. I have reported several blatantly sexual / nude pics tonight. There are far too many to report them all. A couple I saw border onto Child Exploitation
Party-Poison- - Great but a few suggestions
Pinterest is a really good app. You can find all sorts of different things on there and it’s easy to use. You can follow your friends and see their pins, too.
One thing that annoys me is if I’m on the home feed, then switch to my profile, notifications or search or go to my home screen, when I go back to the feed it automatically reloads. I keep losing pins I want to save because I’ve exited the app (not swiped it up) or checked something else. If this could be fixed that would be great.
Here are my suggestions:
- It would be nice if you could make your account private and choose who follows you, like on Instagram.
- Adding to that^, it would also be nice if you could set your boards so only your followers/people you follow can see them. I have boards that I’d like my friends to see, but I don’t want strangers seeing them, so I just have to keep them on private, and it’s kind of annoying.
- Being able to collaborate on private boards
- A view history so you can see pins you’ve viewed in case you lose them
- Being able to move sections to different boards
Tanzer 12 - Great app
This is a really good app that helps you find great inspiration and ideas. I also love how it is not all about the followers in this app like it is for a lot of other apps. You get to really customise you profile and easily change it when ever you want. Adding on to all of that you can message friends, and if your child is getting into social media this is a great app to get them ready. You can view everything that you’re child is liking and following from your Pinterest page which is another plus. Just like other apps there are cons and one of them is the types of people on Pinterest that are not the good kind and also there can be hurtful comments etc. Otherwise this a great app
Lazyboy15253 - I love Pinterest, b u t!
Pinterest is my procrastination inspiration, good, bad, who’s to decide?
Anyway, I have minor issues with the app: after a while of scrolling through the “posts” (or immediately as I select a post) the structure of the app would split the screen, able to look and interact with two posts at once. Though rad at times, in the end it’s quite bothersome, unable to completely view a single post.
It’s likely a bug, or maybe an issue with my phone, however I have no clue how to send complaints, so here. Review.
Great app, highly recommend if you don’t have a deadline.
Boipanda - It’s good- but I have complaints.
Pinterest is a good app and site to seek inspiration and catalogue it for later use, as well as use it for just leisure.
But I’m getting increasingly frustrated with each update. First the search engine was removed despite many people protesting against it, then the comments section doesn’t allow you to reply to others (at least this one’s fixed) and now the homefeed is confusing to navigate on the app as well.
I didn’t ask for this, and I’m pretty sure no one did. There’s been a trend where new features have been added or removed, and the company isn’t listening to its users. If it keeps up, I’m thinking of moving to another app.
AlisonM65 - Great app
Have been using this app for a few years and it is easy to use, great tool to have. I’m a big recipe collector, so just love it. What would be even better is if you had the option of pinning a note to your collection. For example if I have changed / added to a recipe, but I don’t want to provide this feedback to the original source via reviews / comments, but as a reminder to myself, I have no way of doing this. It then means I have to either digitally write on another app put in a reminder or handwrite a note and store it somewhere. Something for the developers to think about. This would apply to anything that I collected, not just recipes.
shibakenko - I love this app; but...
I cannot get enough of pinterest. It’s my go-to for inspiration and ideas. But there are SO many advertisements as of late! They take up such a ridiculously large portion of the home page. They’re the size of large pins, and I have to scroll through so many! 😿 It’s to the point where my entire screen will just be full of ads, and I have to actively look for the pins that I want to see. Yes I can just press “hide ad” but there are just too many of them to be doing that every time. I would be open to a paid option where I can pay a one time fee to browse Pinterest ad-free. I will keep using it as I love using it- but I just had to put my honest feedback somewhere. Toodles! 👋🏼
ZHSmooth - AI algorithm has gotten worse with age & far too many ads
I’ve had the app for years now and a couple years ago it was perfect, easily my favourite app. The content was rich and the tailoring algorithm was very accurate, providing me with a great feed. Now, I am flooded with advertisements and less relevant content that I begin to think, is this just another social media platform? Traditionally, I set Pinterest apart from Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. but now I feel it’s just the same. Please restrict the amount of advertisements you allow and make the content relate to the searches within the app (not the data from the entire phone). There is such hype around AI and how it can be beneficial to businesses but, in this instance, its completely ruining, what was, an amazing platform. It’s 2019, you’re meant to prioritise customer centricity.
Bahh9 - Love Pinterest! BUT
Love this app so much! It’s now my go-to... but few things have changed that’s annoying. Bring back the old newsfeed pls! I can’t see who pinned it unless I click on the actual pin. Seems all over the place now, can’t it be by recent pin. I want to see only the people I am following. With notifications, I think is a bit unnecessary because we already see what they pin on the NF but how come I also get notified by some friends pins even if I don’t follow them but I have them on other social networks? If I want to see their pins I would follow them. Also pls bring back the ‘like’ button. I just miss the old newsfeed 😩
Madster009 - Pinterest is amazing!
I love Pinterest it’s such a great app. It helps everyone share ideas and their creations. I just think it could be a little bit better if there could be different categories for followers. For example I wanted to add more people to a group board, but have lost track of who I’ve added to that particular board. Pinterest would be even more great if people you follow and your followers could be organised by most recent (you followed them or they followed you), alphabetical and even the highest amount of followers they have to the lowest. Thanks so much!
LogOnABeach - Frustrating
The only problem is, I barely ever see pins from boards I follow. Majority, if not all, pins are recommendations. I unfollowed a category of boards (example; food) and I’m still getting recommendations in relation to the example.
Edit* it’s been two months or so since writing this review and nothing has changed. I did a small experiment where I unfollowed all of my Marvel boards last month, I have not searched any Marvel related pins but my wall is still bombarded with Marvel pins. I now, only follow aesthetic boards and I see no pins from the boards I follow.
Edit** I decided to make a new account with entirely new boards and pins. I’m suddenly getting pins which I have not searched for nor have I pinned. It’s frustrating that I’m getting pins I have not shown interest in and not seeing any from my following boards.
Natasja's arty life - Addicted.
I joined Pinterest right in the beginning when it was invite only, there is so much to offer and learn, and have learnt. There is one picture that’s been floating around Pinterest for a long time that is soo true. Black and white photo of a man with his mouth open stuck behind plastic, with the meme “leave while you can”. Nah, way too late for me. The only thing is I don’t look at my own boards enough. But when I do I think wow this is a cool board and re-pin stuff. Lol ha ha. Can I rave on more sure! I can. But one other thing I have made many others of friends and family addicts too.
lobri65 - Glitches Galore
This latest version has a lot of glitches attached to it. I will search something and be scrolling for a little bit and then suddenly it will glitches and the screen will go white and stay like it unless I exit the app, and then I have to search the same thing g all over again and find where I was up to just for it to do it again. Another glitch I’ve found is I used to be able to search something quickly jump over to another app and back again and my searched pictures would still be there, now I do it and it goes back to home screen. Which is annoying especially when I’m looking at a specific photo.
BookwormM8 - Perfect
I think Pinterest is really great. It’s been so helpful to me in finding ideas for my passions, such as writing, mythology and learning languages—there is so much on there, and you can upload your own images and videos. It’s super easy to organise boards and you can find just about anything that piques your interest. It’s also nice how you can collaborate with people on boards and make your boards secret and visible only to you. Plus the community is usually pretty friendly.
Overall, it’s my favourite social media app (not that I use many). Highly recommended!
XElectric - It’s great, but I have a suggestion
I love this app. I have had it and used it for years, so much time is spent just scrolling and pinning for as long as possible. This app is definitely in my top 5 apps used daily, but recently I’ve been noticing other apps that have a sort of ‘night mode’ for when the app is being used at night in order to not damage or hurt your eyes I guess. I am quite fond of this ‘night mode’ feature as it allows me to look at my screen in the dark without potentially blinding me in the process, I suggest that this feature would be a great addition to the app and I’m sure many others would agree.
theindianajones - Dedicated Pinterest user!!!
Love the app!! Love the content! However I must say the recent last two updates are NOT my favourite, they make the app harder to use, as someone who’s building it up for a big audience with a lot of content I need to be able to upload my own pins easily and quickly. This means I need to be able to select multiple or keep adding from camera role without having to reopen and scroll all the way through my photos for every upload :(
You had an update which did it perfectly but then you changed it :( otherwise a great app for expression and inspiration as a creative !
jsjjdjrjdjdj - Fantastic
I’ve had the app for years now and I really love it! It’s given me so much inspiration for drawing, fashion and much more! It’s gonna take a while to get used to the newest update and honestly I prefer the old layout but that’s probably because I hate change 😂. Also with the newest update I realised that I can’t comment or try a post unless someone already has, maybe I just can’t figure out how but I’m pretty sure theres just no button for it. Other than that this app is absolutely incredible and I’d definitely recommend it to everyone!
Mailbox full - Disappointed.
I’ve used Pinterest for years and it has always been one of my favourite platforms, until now... There are wayy too many ads, I scrolled down and within only a few scrolls I was bombarded by endless advertisements. Also majority of the ads are from the same companies! They need to be spaced out and have a larger variety because having the same companies ads shoved down your throat every two scrolls is extremely irritating, it’s become a real annoyance for me and has pretty much destroyed the overall experience of using the app, I have now turned off using it due to the constant adverts which ruin the calm experience I associate with the app. As a fan it’s really disappointing and needs to be rectified.
Anai-lo - Pinterest is great but..
I would definitely recommend to anyone to get Pinterest 📌 it's so inspiring to read watch, look at, and dance to! 💃⌚🎪🚨 I know you can get bad feedback but that's not you it's them because your beautiful no matter what any one comments on you! 💓I would say that kids under 7 years old should wait a bit longer till they get since there are some rude and bad, inopropet comment and things that defiantly are not nice for kids to watch, but besides that it's so good! I love it so much! ❤💜 thanks so much for bringing this!
Benji_Gallacher - It’s good but there is a few concerns
I really like this app, it’s gives me great cooking recipes and funny memes and jokes when I’m having a bad day. Except I receive emails from Pinterest about pins to see and I find it really annoying. At the bottom of the email it says unsubscribe from this email and I press that so I don’t receive any more emails. As soon as I press that it goes to website saying that I have unsubscribed. I press done on the website, and then it takes me to the app...the next day I have a look at emails and text messages and I have got and email from Pinterest! Even though I have already unsubscribed😖
I really hope you can fix this Pinterest!!
moksha_xoxo - Pinterest
Pinterest is absolutely amazing. There is literally nothing about it that is boring. When you want to see something new in home, you just swipe up and there, a new home screen has awakened. I love Pinterest so much. There is so much to learn from it like, cooking, photography, art, beauty, people. Pinterest let’s people see what they are devoured to see. Pinterest is art, it shows you the false and good of people’s life. It shows you how to live, it gives you motivation towards people to do what you wanna do. I highly recommend this app.
Annies Patch - In Love
I am in love with Pinterest! I am an artist, working with fibre and textiles, paint, dyes, weaving, baskets, and more.. My main area, professionally, is illustration. I illustrate children’s books, which are based on an Australian animal theme. My work would be impossible to get the standard I require, without the assistance of Pinterest images to work from.
The images are such high quality, so easily found, and infinitely available when searching.
I can’t work without it -I think Pinterest forms my life, from health, food, and mindfulness, to art and craft, and beyond.
fight if u dare - love it! But...
I’ve been using Pinterest for years now, I’ve used their ideas for painting, renovating, exercising, and basically everything. I love the idea of being able to keep everything seperate and having the feed based mainly off your interests instead of who you follow. But I don’t really like how the comments were changed from ‘liking’ comments to ‘is this helpful’. It makes comments feel less fun and it took away all the likes on my older comments (I had some comments up to 2000 likes) but other then that it’s amazing and I love the everything about it.
luke12122003 - Pinterest
Pinterest is a great app that u can find useful in many ways! 😃 There is a couple of things that would make it a bit better, I usually use my laptop for Pinterest and am constantly getting emails about everything which would be good maybe once a fortnight, and another thing that u used to be able to do but u no longer can is flipping between pictures, u used to be able to press the right arrow and then see the next photo but now u have to go out of it completely before looking at the photo that comes after it.
Charlize T-L - Pinterest - Charlie
Pinterest is one of the many apps that always seems to calm me down and make me laugh. Sometimes it makes me cry but only because I’m reading sad stories and even though this is not buzzfeed or tumblr, this app is quite incredible considering everything that floats around usually always ends up on Pinterest. I highly recommend this app to anyone who is looking for anything because I’m sure it will be there. Or if they’re simply looking for a laugh to cheer them up when they’re sad.
Hi456123890 - PLEASE FIX THIS
I absolutely love Pinterest and really work hard at making my Pinterest aesthetic and my own unique style. Because of this I’ve really built up a following and am proud of this achievement on my business account. However, recently you have gotten rid of followers ability to see how many monthly views I get on my account which really helped to boost my following. Could you PLEASE put this feature back on the business account profiles as I really enjoyed viewers ability to see this. Thank you✨
kazmah52 - Review
I find this sight very hard to get around in. You get lots and lots of email saying free pattern and then you go to it and touch on the free pattern it takes you to some where else and then somewhere else and somewhere else and somewhere else after ages and ages of going somewhere else over and over again I get jack of it and just give up. I don’t like it because you never seem to get to the pattern. I find it one of the hardest sights to find anything on and most of the time I just delete the email with out even looking at it because you just go around and around and never find what you are looking for
Kittykin Kerr - Great app, if you want to be recommended the void
So, umm, I haven’t used Pinterest in a while... but when I came back it seemed to decide that it will recommend me, just, an eternally blank page, it was pretty fun to use and all... but... the heck?! The only images that show up are the ones I’ve already found in the past, and that’s just on the folder covers, then they disappear too. Was there a change in management? Does the void run this app now? Or is this a glitch?
... okay it’s fixed itself now, Nevermind
scarecrowblackKnight - One app lover to one app owner
I love this new way to connect with people, but I’m just not that crazy about it like I am with instagram. I don’t know what it is, but this app just doesn’t make me go crazy for it. Like don’t get me wrong I loveeee how different and cool it is, but like I said it’s not for me. My biggest feedback is it needs to be more different, like how would people want to go on this app and let’s just say instagram for instance. It NEEDS to be different out going and wired, but still cool. So as I will say this is my biggest feedback and take it or not but it’s just one app lover to one app owner.

Love Pinterest, but loved it more without the repetitive, non interesting ads that never cause me to buy anything. In fact, I purposely don't purchase through a Pinterest link

Love this app it gives great suggestions on stuff you show an interest in which leads to things you would or may have passed. Keep up the great work and creating happy pinners.
What if u - Love this Pinterest
I really enjoy everything about it...
Fbbhdbgbg - How could you not love it?
Pinterest is awesome and the app is super convenient!
Redbevy - Bev D.
My daughter got me started on Pintrest! It is an awesome program! Breakfast and Pintrest - doesn't get any better!
Now I find so many pins with advice for things that I have absolutely no interest in, continually over and over again
Mariegamma - Du gros bonheur
On 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 !! 😁
Guyann - J'adore
C'est un site très intéressant est une grande variété je l'adore cinq étoiles pour Pinterest xxxxx
Greyt Owner - Review

deaf-one - LOVE it!!!!!
All the varieties it has to offer and especially all those FAB recipes!!!
taurusdeb - Awesome
Always find stuff to laugh at, food to cook, decorating ideas.
grace mariya joseph - Pinterest
I 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!!!!!
Natlaff - I hate the new update
I’m a big Pinterest user. Spend several hours per day and I hate the new update. I spend most of my time scrolling Pinterest on my phone and with the new update it’s hard to save images and to view full screen a pin of interest. Please go back to previous version!!!
LiveLaughLola - fix this
i 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!!!
tessa.the.artist - 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.
Enni.28 - 🌸💕
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. ;)
Princess🤷🏾♀️ - Fix a bug
I liked Pinterest until the new update
My feed would refresh after looking at a post or pining a post making me loose potential post!
Please fix it I really love the app
20040308 - Great until the Latest Update
Not a fan of the latest update.. . It doesn’t give me a chance to scroll and look at anything.
kramerjacks9 - STOP refreshing!
There is literally nothing I hate more about this app than the fact that if I conduct a search or look at my pins, regardless of where I am on the home page, it will refresh. I should only get refreshed, new pin suggestions if I refresh manually. Otherwise I’ve lost numerous potential pins because this app believes that every time I leave the app or leave the apps main page I want to refresh my pins. This is the single most annoying part of this app by far.
Buttermilk94 - Used to love..but it’s going downhill
I used to use Pinterest for everything, and still want to. But I desperately miss the catagoeries option, as well at least half the links I clock on are misleading. Please fix.
psychedelicpeaches - Always Crashes!
I use Pinterest lots, even though over the years it seems to get worse honestly :( There are ads everywhere, and every time I’m on the app for more than 10 minutes it will crash and I have to reopen it. I keep making sure that it’s updated and everything, so I really don’t understand why it keeps doing this. I don’t see any reviews about it though, am I the only one who’s getting this??
Tonyavender - Saved pins
Where are all my saved pins ?????
LaurenCarlyS - Great app but needs an update, glitchy
I 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.
Mndtl2011 - Problems since the last update
GIF doesn’t want to upload, keep getting white screen on picture.
But I love Pinterest, best app ever! I am totally addicted lol
If you can fix that bug, it would be amazing!
Vidiacool - Hate the new update
The new update is just ugly, it's hard to find something and everything is smaller.
Halle6628 - I used to think this app was annoying
I never signed up for it because I thought it was pointless and stupid but once I finally gave in, I am OBSESSED with Pinterest it makes me happy and I love the pictures !!!!
Taylor speed - Not updating my borders.
It’s not updating any of my borders when I put new pictures in the pictures are there but it says 20 hrs ago. and I just put the pin in and that’s really making me upset because soon l’ll start to lose people who follow my borders because they’ll think I’m not updating them please fix this soon.
laykenjessica - Where’d the quick save feature go??
I loved this feature for the whole like 2 weeks I got to use it and now it’s back to the old crappy way of having to click like 3 times to pin something
Five princesses - Completely commercialized
This app is impossible to navigate because anything you click on is coated in ads. Most annoying are the video ads which scroll in front of the web content. This sucks my data and i avoid using Pinterest when I can avoid it.
Tjhsjcf - HATE the new layout!!
I absolutely love this app to death but the new layout ssssuuuucccckkkksssss!!!!! Please change it back!!!
Copperbonsai - Big bad idea
Pinterest you lost AALL MY PINS!!!
Stupid idea! Bye bye.
Emma ---- - I love Pinterest but I hate the new update
Before I could have all my boards in a vertical line in alphabetical order and they were all organized and pretty. Now however I don’t have the option to have them in said line because the new update added so many “ all pins” board all over and it seriously bothers me because it seems very unorganized. But the app is still amazing and is the best app I’ve ever downloaded. its just the new update I hate.
Thiqq suzy - reordering pins
i can’t reorder any of my pins anymore with the new update.
lilyredcat - It keeps refreshing
Hey Pinterest, ummmmm i kinda dont like the new update can you maybe change it a bit maybe where you know the little buttons like the home button, the search button, the message button, and the account button and maybe put that when you go into boards like you know what i mean right sorry if i sounded mean but please but that back.
willow rush - i love it but new bug came with the update
my “all pins” board is constantly duplicating and i cant get rid of it! i dont want it to be there in the first place let alone have seven of them, perhaps you could remove that feature?
stop with thr ads - Advertisement
I really dislike using Pinterest, every link feels as if I’m going to get trapped in a web of advertisers and phishing scams.
uwu-inator - (＞人＜)
i enjoy pinterest lots! i just wish when i repeatedly choose to not see a pin that i’m not interested in again, it’ll keep popping up. especially with even users that i block. i really wish pinterest’s system worked better. :/ other than that it’s a pretty good app.
strawberry soy milk - September 17 2020
Absolutely hate the newest update
I personally find it more difficult to use and would prefer if they reverted to the version before that.
Also why are the “ideas for this board” so much less accurate now majority of the pins there look nothing like the things I have on the actual board
But besides that I love the app difficult to explain but organizing my account helps with my anxiety💖
MissK514 - Application merveilleuse!
Fonctionne très bien. Stimulante par la variété de son contenue. Peu créer de l’insomnie. Enjoy!
College Deadbeat. - Big F up guys.
I was so into the Pinterest scrolling I missed my first college class this year. Yikes. I’m a first year so it was just straight up my first class in college. Lied and said that my computer wouldn’t start up and was with the geek squad. Like I would ever trust them with my laptop. Mrs R if you see this... I’m not sorry, you were an absolute nightmare on the phone and if you’re like that all the time I’ll just be on this app and drop you like the hot rancid trout you sound like. Peace.
AJMHHDSHPI - Love it
I don’t think I will ever look back. Pinterest has changed my life, my style and design. My obsession is with house organization ideas that people share. I love it. It brings me joy☺️🤗
Muffin@27 - Not at all happy with the service..
Lorri1109 - Can’t Move Pins
I love Pinterest but when I select my pins to move them it won’t allow me too. Please fix this it is quite irritating.
nurselady1 - Unhappy
The app just updated and now it crashes as soon as I try to launch it. Please rectify this asap
WalkerBear - New update
Since updating I cannot get into my app on my phone nor my iPad. April 8 2020
Poka hontas - Pinterest
This was by far my favorite App. I could spend hours searching projects. However now, you have to navigate through all the adds. Finding the recipe on a link takes forever and we do find it, it had adds all over it. Very frustrating.
Selkie's - Design has gone downhill.
I have used Pinterest for several years, and absolutely loved it. What’s happened? Annoying, repetitive, noisy, and often downright disturbing adverts on every view; images of abused animals; can’t seem to view a decent image; changes in saving to boards. I have deleted the app for now.
Kj wolfywolf - Dislike newest format update
They were doing so well! Nice the newest updated format seems so redundant to displaying good photos and presenting unnecessary information
Johnnyv86 - Hate the new look
I hate the new update, looks horrible when browsing on my iPad. Change it back to how it was and stop trying to change something that isn’t broken.

Just one review for today. - I have more problems now than before....
So I was originally just going to email Pinterest about my problem because it is a very specific problem, but I can’t seem to find the correct email. I even went so far as to go into MESSAGES to find the email. I saw a “Email Pinterest” button in the contacts section of messaging and I clicked it and..... nothing. I click it again..... nothing. It would let me click the button so I just gave up.
Anyways my original problem was with the new update. Everything was fine until this update so I know it’s just the update that caused it. I will go to comment something on a pin and everything will be fine, but when I reply, the “Add” button is like SUPER far down and UNDERNEATH the keyboard. I can’t click it unless I make some really long response that takes up like seven lines and it eventually comes up above the keyboard. And this is ONLY when I reply to a comment. I tried closing out of the app completely and going back in, but it’s been doing this all day and it is VERY annoying. Pls fix this ASAP.
Chief Intecessor - Pinterest....It only took you 47 years!!
After 47 years....... 47 long years ..... After countless attempts prior ......It was finally through this wonderfully created app, Pinterest that led me to meet my birth mom!!!.... I stumbled on a pin back in June 2015 on a lazy Saturday afternoon.... that said Adoptees receive copies of their original birth certificates. This pin began the most memorable journey of my life... I clicked on it and it opened a door that was literally sealed for 40 plus years.... I followed the process from the pin ... received the birth certificate.... began searching for my birth mom .... found her in July 2015 .... not even a full month later.....and met her face to face in November 2015.... unfortunately she passed away December 2016.... But look at the miracle of God I was able spend that time with her .... Pinterest has been a blessing in my life .... just in time..... and the funny thing is I wasn't doing a search for anything related to adoption... However, God saw fit for me to see that pin... it was the last one at the bottom of the scroll..... thanks Pinterest...keep doing what you're doing!
DDDDDDDjjjjawwsh - Thankful
Love it! So today I went on my Pinterest to look up pictures of braids and was amazed by something for the first time since I started using the platform. Now, while I am a long time user of Pinterest, for the longest time I’ve complained about not being able to search for the type of people that look like me. That if I were to type in “short curly hair styles” I’d get page after page of white girls. Nothing wrong with them, the pics were beautiful, but just not very representative of me and my hair. This is not to say that I couldn’t find black girls, it just wasn’t easy. I’d have to find one, then scroll to look at similar pics and so on. So back to today, when I typed in “braids” on Pinterest I got the option to choose a skin tone. I nearly cried. This one tiny, simple act of inclusion felt so overwhelming and powerful. All I have to say is, I am more than grateful and so excited to keep using the platform for everything from daydreaming about my future house to choosing my latest hairstyle. Just now with a bit more ease. Thank you.
Seco2600 - Lost potential
Pinterest has the chance to be great, but the bugs just ruin it. I’ve been using Pinterest for about 3-4 years and bugs that were prevalent back then are still around today, and they constantly feel the need to change the layout which only causes more bugs! Things like not being able to reply to a comment. I can never get it to work by pressing the “reply” button so half the time I have to do the @ stuff which only works sometimes (also spaces are replaced by _ in @ they don’t bother telling you though). They also need to rely more on original content the whole website is full of credited work, I guess some would say that’s the point you’re “pinning” them but I hardly ever see a link to the original. Don’t even get me started on soft locks, there has never once been a moment where I opened and closed Pinterest without having to close it atleast ONCE because they won’t fix a bug that has been around for YEARS. Overall I wouldn’t recommend this one, that is unless if they fixed the issues I’ve brought up (and many more) but it’s been a few years by now, I don’t think that’s happening
Also the whole site has been taken over by Dank memes which I think is funny
a-n!ckname - love the app, updates are frustratingly 50/50
i love how pinterest is focused around what you like rather than your face and who you are. it’s a great way to just express your creativity and is a safe space to find things related to what you love or love to do. anyone can use it and make their profile their own. HOWEVER, they have a habit of making good updates and taking things away right after!! i was once able to make story pins, but my ability to do so suddenly vanished one day with no explanation and they act as if i still have them when i go to sign up again! along with that, i’m not able to choose other ways to react to pins other than with hearts, my home page reverted to an older edition (that was less convenient), and no matter how many times i stay up to date on updates, other people have so many more different options than i do. i know that this is not happening to everybody, but it’s not just me unfortunately. i just don’t like how updates are not equal for everyone when i feel like there shouldn’t be an issue. otherwise, i love this app and highly recommend it.
Purearky - Makes Me Look Good, Needs Improved Search Capabilities
I love Pinterest. I find all kinds of great ideas for multiple aspects of my life here: food, crafts, parenting, decorating, and even spiritual inspiration. The community is very supportive and has just enough interaction with others to qualify as social media, but not so much as to take away from the ideas themselves. Feeds my creative outlet (and scrolling habit) while minimizing the drama. Plus all the pins I can pull off (let’s face it, not all of them are doable by average untrained folks) make me looks super smart and put together, when honestly I’m just good at using resources and following directions.
I will say this, if anyone is reading these from the developer side: please improve the search functionality. I have so many pins on different subjects that to be able to find them later is kind of part of the draw of pinning. So when it doesn’t work very well, it detracts from the experience significantly. Searchability should be based on the title as well as the description of the pin. Sounds like basic logic but it doesn’t happen often in the app. Thanks dev!
Pet73Ams - Addictive but lately super annoying
I used to love this app. I thought the option to not see certain pins a wonderful idea... if it works !!! I have been getting rid of pins I have no interest in for days at end... I never looked up chicken recipes: I hate chicken ! I never looked up other meat recipes; I’m mostly vegetarian. I don’t care about crochet, and I do not wish to see embroidery patterns. I also never looked for, or have any interest in floral wreath making yet for days I’ve been getting rid of these pins and still they pop up and fill the majority of Pinterest. Why have the option to say you’re not interested in certain pins only to receive them twice as much as before ??!!! Very annoying. Where before I enjoyed getting inspired by all the wonderful pins I now find I’m spending my time on Pinterest clicking that I have no interest in that pin. I also need to see where I can stop Pinterest from spying on me. I will google certain things and when opening Pinterest I find myself bombarded by those exact things I searched for before. Not ok. Just because I looked for a pants pattern ones doesn’t mean I want my feed filled with patterns. Annoying af!
PupCrazy - Very upset former pinned
I was a huge fan of Pinterest when it first debuted. I went gung ho with creating my pin boards. Several years went by and I had a large following. Sometimes I would get carried away and pin to many pictures from a person that had set limits to how many you could pin. As if they owned the rights to those pictures! Clearly they did not. I had lost my phone, couldn’t remember my login info or my Google info so I was absent from Pinterest for almost a year. I was finally able to get back online and went straight to the Pinterest App. To my surprise I couldn’t log on only to find out that my account had been temporarily suspended. No reason given. I immediately appealed. One year later still no response from anyone at Pinterest. My pin boards meant the world to me, some of them hold many memories of my childhood and when my children were small. Several pictures are on those boards of deceased family members and I will never see those pictures again unless I get reinstated. I can’t believe over pinning gets one locked out of something so personal without any prior warning. I would suggest that other people enjoy pinning but don’t put pictures on there that you would risk losing.
Word Cookies Lover🍪🍪 - How do you try a pin?
I loved Pinterest so much and used it every day but ever since an update I don’t know how to try a pin or read comments. I don’t know if that’s something that Pinterest removed (in that case I really hope they bring it back because I loved that feature) or if it’s my phone (iPhone XS) or if I’m not looking in the right place for them. Can someone please tell me? I can’t find it in the help section
Edit!!!- changed to four stars
I reached out to Pinterest for help over this problem and they immediately fixed it. Like so fast, that the second I was done with the complaint it was fixed. So I’m soo happy about that. Now Pinterest is my favorite app again. The only things I would say could use changing is the inability to move the entirety of other people’s boards onto your own. I forgot my Pinterest account password and email so I had to follow myself and transfer all the pins one by one. Since I have more than a couple thousand pins, this was painstaking and made my fingers hurt. But in other words this is a great app and I am very satisfied with their customer service.
Pedro:))) - Pinterest Cured My Depression
Well not really, but there was a really wholesome thing they did, that I was not aware they do. Not only is Pinterest my go-to to get my creative juices flowing; it’s also my only form of social media. I get the latest memes, whilst getting deep and creative. I love how customizable it is to your tastes and I’m always finding new stuff. Great for artists, and literally whatever else tickles your pickle. Back to curing my depression though, when you have a hard day...or life, sometimes you just need to stare at some depression memes. Pinterest did supply, but they also (by my surprise) had a Pinterest Health Center. It had the suicide hotline, along with different sections of inspiring words. It’s hard to explain, just look up depression memes. But I don’t want this to be overlooked, I’m so happy they took the time to acknowledge mental health problems and direct people in a different way to get themselves help. It means a lot to me that they did this, even made me feel better. Thank you Pinterest :)))
Crystal_opf - You guys ruined it
In scanning through the recent comments, it seems I’m in the majority. I won’t goin to details because everyone here is saying the same thing, too many ads, content that’s chosen for me based on algorithms that flood my feed with one topic- usually the last thing I searched for, and seriously- what is the point of following other people here? I barely see friends pins show up in my feed. Yes I’m interested in seeing what they pin- that’s why I follow them. All of this has been said in much greater detail here, but the thing that drove me to write this review is the latest update with the stupid freaking dots all over an image I’m trying to look at, so that I don’t miss out on the opportunity to buy it all- problem is, I can’t see it at all because there are white dots in the way! And then when I try to scroll down to see more pins like the one in viewing, which used to be a nice feature, I’m bombarded with more ads!
The only reason you’re getting to stars is because I wanted to thank you - all the updates have so ruined the app, that I’m spending way less time in my phone now. I’m actually picking up real magazines again- which has been really nice. So thank you, two stars for you.
R in roc - Too many ads
I used to use Pinterest a lot. I loved seeing interesting boards and people I followed. Now it’s tons of ads and auto play ads. The quantity of ads ruin the look and feel of Pinterest. I scroll through Instagram all the time and the ads don’t bother me. Pinterest has failed to learn the art of making ads appealing.
They just bombard you with gobs of ads with that annoying and condescending message about how those ads were paid for. We get how ads work. Having it spelled out every time is not needed. The auto play ads are awful. Just let me turn them off even if I on WiFi. They continue the ruination of Pinterest by ads and take to the next level.
They other major complaint is that I’m constantly inundated with suggestions or content I don’t want at the expense of seeing content I do want. Their algorithms are so off for both advertising and content. I rarely use Pinterest anymore and usually get right off of it after less than a minute because the ads ruin the vibe and aesthetic. Only thing Pinterest cares about is advertising. It’s too bad they could care enough to make the advertising appealing and blended into the aesthetic that made Pinterest so great before. At the rate I don’t use it. I’ll probably delete it soon. Enjoy those ads.
Julian's mommie - Noooo! I liked the board moving editing!!
Why are all the awesome features being removed? I was loving that I could edit and move my boards to organize it all! I wasn’t done yet! Now I can’t rearrange my boards making my profile all pretty. Looks like I would have to do a tedious job of creating and moving the pins separately. I love the sun board/section feature added. But it would be even more awesome of a sub board in a sub-board. That would make my Pinterest life the best in organization! It’s great now we have the introduction of the lightbulb to find more like a particular pin that now replaces the circle thing that was removed. What I found is needed is being able to see who follows what of my boards and profile. Some people only follow a board, so when I delete a board or moved it as a sub board, those people are now gone. Would be nice to have an option to message the people that follow a board that the board was moved and give them the option to refollow the board that was moved or changed or follow my entire profile. Now, that would be awesome! I’m now sadden I can’t move my boards around now. Booo.
Ffgghhbccc - Wish could return to sender!
Ok call me “old school” but I’m not the only way who missing how Pinterest used to be. When I was introduce to it, I was hooked...you can tell by how many boards I have. After I joined, one of the first updates for me was so AWFUL I stop using it for a while. Then I decided to give it another chance...I did over & over again but your chances are getting slimmer & slimmer. I dealt with the ads but this new update it TERRIBLE...now we abbreviating the ABCs & in tiny fonts...ahhh, WHY?
Is it me but did a lot of things shrunk in this new makeover...I haven’t even check on what else been done...I’m like about done already. I agree with others, please make the updates make some kinda sense not just for the few or ones new to the app. Let some else said...at least find out what folks want. Wait a minute...is this a big app joke...messing with people? Ahhh, so not funny. On a positive note, the updates slowed down my time on what use to be an addictive for me. I still use it but so not as “addictive” as it was before. So THANKS for helping me in kicking what used to be a wonderfully creative time & NO THANKS but too late in wishing I passed on this new update.
Dizzyrdhd - Finally, some improvements!
Many of these comments are for the browser and not the app, and most of the issues raised have been fixed... For example, there IS a way to see pins from just those you follow - there is a feed devoted to that now. It’s wonderful! And, sponsored pins are fewer in the home feed, which does a good job of tracking my interests... Saving a pin is much easier than it used to be - one click instead of three (so you you can pin three times as much before you get carpel tunnel symptoms. Ha!) And, the ‘like’ feature is back for group boards. (As a group board owner, that’s the way I used it most often, anyway.) The BEST most WONDERFUL thing of all is that you can organize your pins by dragging them around a page (instead of repinning them in a new order). This makes Pinterest SO much more fun! Also, the option to have sections in each board is a dream come true... I will give a 5-star rating to Pinterest when the glitches in the app and on the computer stop occurring so often. I will say, the support team is VERY responsive. So, bravo!! I rate Pinterest 4 1/2 stars.
Maybe spoilers? - I also miss the old Pinterest
I’m sorry but I came to the App Store, just now from Pinterest, to say that with every update Pinterest seems to be getting worse. Enough already. I’ve been here from the beginning and I flat out refuse to update on my iPad because I realized it just isn’t getting better. I don’t understand why we can’t search within categories like “entertainment,” “pets,” “crafts,” etc anymore... I don’t want a home feed, and then a separate place for people I’m following, that makes no sense. It used to be much more user friendly. Also the “algorithms” or whatever they call it are out of control. I’ll click on one pin for say, cupcakes while in search. And next thing I know I have a million cupcake recipes throwing themselves at me, one after another in my feed. Like, chill out Pinterest.
One thing I miss is the “tried it” feature. When they implemented that a few updates ago it was great. Somehow they messed that up too with a recent update. Now you can’t simply comment on a recipe without adding a picture or something. My complaint is the new Pinterest is not user friendly. Which is a shame because I love Pinterest it’s my favorite app. There’s really nothing like it.
Jack and Jill of Albuquerque - Update is horrible...
I’ve been using Pinterest since before it was cool, and normally I don’t mind app changes and updates. But this time did me in. I really only want to see stuff from people I follow, and maybe a few pins from similar boards. However, the “following” tab doesn’t show everything my friends pin. And the home page is all, wait for it....., MCU spoilers. Yes, folks. I have gone the entire MCU without having a movie spoiled and along comes Pinterest and suddenly I’m savvy to every Infinity War death. But here’s the real problem. I have spent every day of the past week hiding every Marvel pin I come across, (like, 30 a day) and yet every time I open the app theres still more at the top of my feed. And it’s not just marvel. I’ve been doing a lot of hiding to try and get my feed back to something i enjoy. But it’s the same with other content as well. Instead of giving me less, the app just keeps sending me more of the same. So my Pinterest experience has been reduced to scrolling through the main feed, trying to find my friends’ pins while trying not to read anything else. Cmon, Pinterest. Let’s get back to a tailored Pinterest experience and not what the algorithms want to show people.
Juggling Multiple Jobs - Don’t have an opinion just Share, Share, and watch our Ads!
What you dislike should be every bit as important as what you Like
And not everything you Like is what you want to spread around and share!
Pinterest has removed key features in its app over the last year that have so severely reduced its personalized uniqueness and usefulness I may as well be on Imgur. The ability to dislike something (to tailor it out of your feed) for a reason other than a Report Issue (which will only affect that pin, not your preferences) has virtually disappeared, telling the app that you are sick of your feed being overrun by useless/uninteresting/ubiquitous paid advertisements is useless (1:6 pins still an add after a month of hiding every paid add as “I just don’t like ads”), you can no longer “Like” and save a pin that you don’t want to further spread to others resulting in suggested new pins being reduced to the same 100-or-so pins from different feeds (amazingly Pinterest, some of us actually want to _test_ a recipe/troubleshooting tactic/product Before we give a seal of approval and share it with the world!)
But, money and sponsorships are successfully destroying what was once a truly inspired community sharing app.
SYS CRMC - No help from Pinterest
Tech support does not exist. Unlike other apps, I cannot communicate with anyone. It’s not the first time I’ve tried to contact Pinterest. After 1-2 weeks I receive emails (paraphrased), “We haven’t heard from you so we assume the problem has been fixed.” I’ve tried to reply. Nothing has ever been fixed. When requesting help, I’m limited to entering their selection of the issue message: Renaming a Board. Because I had to choose from their list (“Other” is not included), I know I will receive a canned response on how to edit a board. I have edited boards but this is the first time I’ve experienced this glitch:
I could not reorder pins on a board. I made a backup board and moved my pins to it. I DELETED the original board but cannot rename my backup: “You already have a board with that name.” After several attempts I removed and reinstalled the app. I continue to see “You already have a board with that name.”
Update: Pinterest responded! Even though the original board was deleted, it takes [2 weeks?] for their system to recognize a new board by that name. However, re-pinning numerous pins to a (temporarily) new board is impractical. One would hope there’s a better solution. One would dare to hope Pinterest reveals it.
Sister Adobe - DESPERATE NEED OF AN UPDATE!!
Pinterest was absolutely perfect about a year ago. There was NOTHING wrong with it. Now it’s updated so many times that they really need to fix things that weren’t broken in the first place! With this newest pointless update, I cant see the account that posted a certain pin. Which means, if theres a certain pin that only a certain account uploads, I can’t click on the pin and be brought to the account. It doesnt even say who uploads what anymore! Which is one of the most annoying things ever! WHY DID YOU DO THIS?! Also, why was the ‘Tried’ section and the comment section merged together?? Finally, there’s this glitch where it wont let me see the pins ive recently saved to a board. All the board does is move up to the top of my account but it still shows the time I last saved a pin to that board as 2 days ago. For each board. Which is quite annoying because I have a few references I saved for illustrations I was planning and now they don’t show up!! Pinterest, please fix this. You were an amazing app before this last series of updates.
Sd14x - The new View Products tag is awful
I have been a pinterest fan since it's inception and I use it heavily to organize my life, ideas, and art! I am really disappointed with the new View Products tag update. When you are viewing a pin, if it has linked products the products are highlighted with dots, feature new tags, and the image itself is grayed out for a few seconds (the few seconds I would normally spend to view a pin.) if I tap the image to make the image appear normally, it opens the website for whatever product is featured. I love saving my ideas and found just clicking on the image if I wanted more info about product purchasing was much more user friendly. This is the first truly annoying feature since the introduction of pinned ads, and I am already using pinterest less because of it. I understand this app is free so ads are a must to keep them in business, but I think many of us would purchase a low cost ad-free version! if there was a paid, ad-free version of the app without the View a Products tag I would be all over it. Please make the View Products tag a settings option we can turn on or off, or make an ad-free, paid version of the app.
B, A-N-A-N-A-S! - Not what it used to be :(
First off, the app has a lot of issues freezing up. I can browse for about 30min and it will lock up requiring me to close it out and reopen it. Checked this issue on several different phones with the same results :( Pretty frustrating to say the least.
Second, I used to love reading through and searching for random DIY projects and makeovers. However, it sadly seems that most of the creativity and ideas have been replaced by product advertisements and links. For example, when I search for “how to make jewelry” I get 10-15% tutorials and the rest are Etsy and online boutique ads selling jewelry. It seems as if Pinterest has become so dominated by Etsy as well as a few other ads that it’s basically ruined the originality of its app/website.
With that being said, I understand some people search Pinterest for shopping ideas so maybe it would be helpful to just update the search to better recognize clue words “DIY”, “Makeover”, “redo”, etc. that way it can prioritize any ads to the very bottom of the list. ??? I don’t know much about computers but I do know I don’t like where Pinterest is heading.
poopy pants magruff - Frustrated
Well I love Pinterest, but lately a lot of content has redirects that take one to dead ends or to un related content when trying to follow feeds. But my one real issue is that when trying to enlarge a picture or page, the page locks up and I have to completely close out the app and then restart the app and then try and re-find the lost pin. OR, if I am afraid of a freeze up I have to save it so I can get back to the particular pin I am interested in. Which forces one to save a lot of junk that I don’t want to save, just to look at. This has been a problem for at least 5 or 6 iterations of updates. I know I am not the only person that faces this issue. Then trying to find a way to report this issue through there web sight is almost impossible lol. I wish they had an easy to find ( report issues with the app ) feed on there web sight. I hope some one from the app developers department see’s this and contacts me. So they can either fix the issue or identify if the problem is me and not the app and that I am ether not operating the app correctly or if the resolution is in front of me and just don’t see it.
justmelara - Don’t believe the hype
As a new small business owner, I got the message that I had to have a Pinterest account and you-must-pin-fifty-times-a-day-and-oh-make-sure-you-schedule-pins-and-oh-you-must-recycle-old-stuff because it can help you generate traffic. I really don’t see how that can be true. I honestly think the people who give that advice only do so *to* drive traffic to their sites and nothing else. The app is littered with junk, spammy, and downright dishonest pins. It’s stupid. I set up a business account and it’s been such a headache. First, my account was suspended for NO reason. I got an apology about that. Now, my business account is GONE. If I try to connect through a link that someone else would use, I see that all my boards are gone. Pinterest says it’s aware of this problem and that it’ll “take some time” to fix the issue. This was 2 days ago. If Pinterest was such a great search engine like all those blogging “experts” /s claim, how does it go glitchy, even if it’s for some customers, for days and it doesn’t make the news? Imagine if that happened to Google even for 2 minutes. I’m so glad I haven’t ponied up any money to promote any pins. Now, I know that this thing isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I’m no longer wasting my time with this app.
livco26 - Closing linked websites-left handed users
Love this app, but have noticed an annoying feature. When tapping on a pin, you are linked to a website, but almost every time I go to scroll down on the website to continue reading, it closes the site and takes me back to the pin. The sensitivity for closing a site by sliding up is way too much. It could either be lowered, so that it doesn’t mistake scrolling for trying to get back to the pin, or maybe go back to just hitting the “x” at the top to get back to the app. I love the updates and how the company conditioned to try to improve, but this problem quickly destroys all patience when you’re trying to read something and have to continue to scroll and find it because it thought you wanted off of the site and back to the pin. I know it does this mostly if you try to scroll from the bottom or left side of the screen and not if you used your right hand to scroll, but I am left handed, and myself and many others use our left hands (and thumbs) to scroll through pages and apps.
Lessismore16 - Just being honest
Don’t get me wrong, I love Pinterest. I am on it everyday and it’s really helped me find new things I never would have thought to look for before like recipes, costume ideas, makeup ideas, hair ideas, and naturally I’ve planned my dream wedding on a hidden board! Why did I give it three stars though? Glad you asked, just as I’ve mentioned above those were things I never thought to look for, a lot of them I just so happen to stumble upon on the discover under certain groups (like beauty for example). Since the discover has been gone it’s been a bummer to go on Pinterest. I don’t always have something I want to search for, and if I do the same search twice I get the exact same pins as before so I’m not discovering anything new. I know there are suggestions based upon my searches and what’s trending, as well as the home screen shows me things related to those searches, but ONE time I saved something riverdale and that’s the only thing that has been popping up for weeks! I just want the good old days of the videos of the day and the discover to find new content I wouldn’t have looked up otherwise.
Medieval Trovist - What I want next...
An app so ridiculously great...it did not force my thumb over a topic to create as a board when I already have rich and popular boards I have made myself. I also want an app that let us really, really get rid of some pins when we say go away. Also let us have some better filters for safety. And...Space for artists and photographers to create and add quickly? Just brainstorming now. The app is fast and straight forward.
I do need something though. I need to be able to flip back more easily to a certain selection of the suggestions that first pop up, as they erase something I spotted but cannot find again because the suggestions were refreshed. Being able to have pathing that tracks how you got to pins, how you have been exploring might be a good tool to find your spot or spots after backing out of a certain selection of similar pins and the similar pins before that. I can get lost in this are with similar pins, but I want to be able to go back in down a path of similar pins as easily as I can back out simply to the first pin I saw.
Kostina - Browsing blind
I really have not liked the changes Pinterest has made to their platform over the last 3 to 4 iterations. I don't like not being able to like other people's pins--it completely removed any nod toward being a "social" media platform when it did this. When I liked something, it was usually because I appreciated what my friend had pinned and I wanted them o know I saw it and liked it--for them, not for me. If I like it for me I would have pinned it also. I despise the constant bombardment of ads in the feed. No matter how many times I change my settings, send feedback on spammy ads, or completely block ad promoter, the ads still keep flooding in. With so many ads, it compounds one of the more recent issues arising from changes--you can't see who has pinned something without first clicking on it, so now you're sucked even deeper into the ad nonsense. If I didn't have so much stuff pinned already, I would not sign up for it. As it is, I mainly use Pinterest for recipes and ideas. I am in the process of moving my recipes out to a different platform so I won't have to interface with Pinterest. Just a bunch of bad moves on their part. One. Right. After. Another.
lm1238971 - Cruddy new update!!!!
WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE INTERACTIONS OF THIS UPDATE?! Hey— Senior UX person here— GETTING TICKED OFF at the new interactions. If I tap a picture, I should expect the same interactions EACH TIME. Top right action should never change— this is usability 101. Is it save or is it follow?? Stop prioritizing sponsored accounts— or whatever reason this button changes each time. Your last update (guessing where you’d save the pin and reducing taps) was amazing. With this update, I have to keep unfollowing accounts I’ve incidentally followed because the save button keeps moving. Please do better! Revert back to something that saved time and allowed for more mindless pinning. The new sticky save bar obstructs the image. Plus, there are so many bugs with the ‘sticky’ save bar— like when an option to follow on Instagram is more prioritized than saving pins (sticky save doesn’t even appear). This app is made for organizing ideas, not pushing instagram accounts. Why did you make saving pins harder? So frustrating. Wish I didn’t update. Also.. just from a CSS perspective- why are your primary CTAs different shapes and sizes? How many app styles did we slap together?
S.a.r.a.h.r.1.4.. - Love Pinterest
I’ve had Pinterest for a few years now and I honestly love it. The newer changes, “likes” as a board and “hide the pin” when you hold down on it don’t make me happy. Sometimes I just wanted to like a pin and keep scrolling but I can’t do that now; I have to post it to the like board and if I’m going to do that I might as well put it in one of my own boards.
The “hide the pin” thing drives me absolutely nuts. I hold down to send the pin to a friend and accidentally slide over the “x” and it’s hidden and there’s absolutely **nothing** I can do about it!! I liked it better when you could choose, not automatically hide it. Before it would ask why you wanted it hidden so it could compare that to other pins you wouldn’t want to see.
Otherwise I love love love my Pinterest. I wouldn’t delete it over these small issues but I’ve talked to friends with Pinterest and they have the same two complaints. If these two problems were fixed I would have no problem giving it 5 stars but they make enough of a difference to rate it 4 stars.
Davidwelker1999 - Great app, needs some improvements though
I've been using Pinterest for several years and have always enjoyed it. However, in recent times I have found that the app is rather a little boring or not as fun to use. I think for it to be a better app again, Pinterest needs to bring back the like button for all pins rather then just for group boards or not at all, instead of the posts for the following section it should be more like the home page of Pinterest where you see the recommended pins, normal and business profiles should get the option for users to upload a profile cover photo, Pinterest needs a couple big different options for a dark mode like a dark blue or grayish black, Pinterest should have a different section for posts that are in the following section, the explore section needs to be how it used to be and Pinterest also needs a better system for reporting posts since sometimes posts that actually don't violate Pinterest's rules get taken down. Other then what I afformentitioned, it's a good app but needs major improvements including what I previously stated.
Aerivsgamingg - Self promo on Pinterest
I really love Pinterest- this app has endless photos and ideas!! If there’s something that I want to try, Pinterest will always have my back. There is one thing that I would like to change about this app, though. Lately the self promo on here has gotten really bad. And by self promo I mean comments from people asking for followers. They always go something like this: “heyy, i know these are super annoying but i’ve been working really hard on my account and i’d appreciate it if you followed me :)”. On one hand, these people are right, it is EXTREMELY annoying. But since when did people start caring about Pinterest followers?? These comments are on almost every single pin I look at and I’m tired of this spam. I think Pinterest should update their spam recognition algorithm so that it includes these comments, because manually reporting them one by one takes too long and it just doesn’t work. It really takes away from the overall experience of using this app. I just want to enjoy Pinterest without being bombarded by a bunch of 14 year olds who are only on here for the followers.
Lovethearts - Data collecting and weird app issue
I watch a show on bariatric gastric bypass surgery. I decide to look the surgery on my browser to gain more information. I suddenly start receiving ads on Pinterest to receive bypass surgery. I am not 600 pounds nor do I need gastric bypass surgery. How did Pinterest know to show me these ads? I see no language in the settings to change the fact that Pinterest is collecting my search and browsing data over multiple platforms. Unacceptable. I have cross-site tracking set to off on every platform. I’ve resorted to using Pinterest on a private browser. Update: I looked up children’s sunscreen in my phone’s browser. Guess what showed up on Pinterest? Coppertone ads. Cross-site tracking is still off. Pinterest, you are violating my privacy rights.
My feed is overrun by topics “selected” for me. If I search for one thing I suddenly have almost the entire feed taken over by that topic. Why can’t the feed show me what my friends post anymore? That was why I joined Pinterest. Now, I only see tailored ads that are repetitive and irrelevant.
nerdgirl03 - Constantly broken, in different ways every time
This is a good app, but there’s always something that’s broken every time there’s an update. It usually affects the comments. This time there’s no way to access the comments on anything other than a board with multiple people in it. There also isn’t a way to see a pin’s original pinner unless, again, it’s on a group board. It’s not this specific glitch that makes the app only three stars, but just the fact that there’s always something. In one of the other more recent updates, whenever you tried to like a comment while typing your own, the app would crash. A while ago, before the format of the comments was changed, 50% of the time you wouldn’t be notified if someone commented on a pin you also commented on. In short, it’s not the glitches themselves that make the app bad, it’s the fact that there’s always something wrong, being a major inconvenience. It only lasts about two weeks, but as soon as it’s fixed, something else is wrong. This app needs to step up its game, and if it doesn’t, I’ll likely stop using it.
sid045826483 - Less interesting to use than it used to be
I love Pinterest for curating ideas and images. The new feature of boards within boards makes for easier and more effective organizing. I had long been wanting to be able to reorder pins within boards and was excited that feature was added to the website, but it doesn’t seem to be in the app. I find less and less good content through the feed though as time passes. It reminds me of a traditional magazine that is mostly ads with a few articles throughout. The feed is overrun with ads I don’t care about and I’m getting bored of the pins that are being suggested for me. I don’t want my friends’ pins buried in the notifications section; they used to be in my feed and made the feed more interesting. Also, I HATE the suggested search terms that are in bold rainbow colors at the top of every board. I never click on them and would never need a term suggested to me. I can think for myself. It’s a useless and annoying feature and messes with the aesthetics of my boards. Overall, I still like and use the app, but I’m using it less often than I used to.
to many ads to enjoy - Disappointed
To say I am disappointed in this app is an understatement. I used to love this app to save my favorite quotes and recipes but now I am contemplating deleting it. I was throughly disappointed when I found that my pro life pins were censored to say “pro choice”and even pornographic in my recommended section. After asking around I found that many other people were experiencing this issue and were very upset, angry, and frankly fed up. To categorize an entire movement dedicated to protecting those who cannot protect themselves as “hateful” is disgusting. Furthermore I have seen no action taken against the hateful, offensive, crude comments left under pro life posts. Your app has clearly shown their stance on this issue and made it known to the public. I understand that you are allowed to have your opinion and speak your mind, and I respect that. However, while you exercise this freedom, I encourage you to remember that I have that same freedom. So, just because you disagree with the pro life movement, does make it acceptable to shut down conversation.I hope to see a change soon and in the meantime I will fight for the unborn. These kinds of things do not weaken pro life people, it only makes us come back stronger.
cali7662 - Organizing system
Now like everyone who uses this app they have A LOT of boards and each board probably has a lot of saved pins, and I’m sure most people would like to go back and see everything, but whenever they got to see their pins everything is everywhere, I’m sure post people might just wanna have that nice aesthetic organized look. So it is just such a hassle with the current organizing system. For example, whenever I have free time I try to organize my pins so I can find everything, but sometimes I accidentally press the side of the screen when I’m organizing and it taps out of when I was organizing and goes back to how it was originally. THAT IS SO SO TROUBLESOME, I did this like twice after I was organizing the pins for like half an hour. And it just makes me so frustrated, also whenever I’m moving the pins around it is so slow and takes forever for me to organized them. I just would like it so whenever I tap on the side of the screen it doesn’t erase my whole progress or maybe just makes it a draft or something?
Nikki hali S - Great app and endlessly entertaining
I love Pinterest because every time you open it there is something new to look at. There’s a never ending amount of things to see. Your feed is totally customizable so you can see things you’re interested in and avoid things you’re not. If Pinterest shows you something you’re not interested in you just say I don’t want to see things like that and it learns your preferences. You can keep everything you see saved on boards organized however you want. I don’t even have any other apps on my phone for entertainment except Pinterest because nothing else compares!! Also, you don’t have to be a girl to use Pinterest! There’s tons of guy things from cars to fishing and hunting to at home DIY projects. You can use Pinterest for literally everything in your life whether it’s cooking or clothes or entertainment or nature or music, it doesn’t matter.... it has everything!!
Do not like the new borders around the pins when you open them.
Cheesepants;)13662 - PINTEREST PLEASE READ MY IDEA !
Hi, first of all I’m going to say this is by far my favorite app to find new ideas and inspiration! I’ve had Pinterest for a pretty long time and possibly even a few accounts over the years. I just wanted to throw my idea out that it should be easier to follow people from their pins posted directly on the home or explore pages. My concept is that when IOS users hard press on the pin to enable the quick option bubbles when the “more” option is chosen that not only “report pin” is shown, but also “follow user”, or something of that sorts. It would make following and connecting with other Pinterest lovers not only easier to access but easier to gain followers yourself! Nothing feels better than the notification that someone saved your pin & has the same taste as you. Hell, it might get y’all more users too! (Also consider allowing users to customize their profile, home, and explore screens with different backgrounds or accent colors) xoxoxo
lololirinaa - #1 BEST Social Media App
I LOVE Pinterest because it’s not like any other social media platform such as Twitter, Snapchat, and/or Facebook. Pinterest is like a digital magazine that you can look up anything such as inspirational quotes, recipes, fashion, creative arts, humorous posts, and cultural sharings. The only thing I don’t like about Pinterest is how it has the option to “following” or viewing “followers” on your profile, but it’s not as dangerous as any other social media platform that makes you want to transform into something you’re not. Pinterest is a great social media platform that encourages you to look up ideas and common interests with other individuals from what they share which motivates you to embrace your beautiful and authentic self. I strongly recommend other individuals to quit Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook and to get the wonderful app known as Pinterest. Ever since I’ve quit all the other social media apps and downloaded Pinterest, I’ve been much happier and healthier.
b0hemian - It used to be awesome, not it’s just okay
Over the years, Pinterest kept screwing with all the fun elements of the app and it’s not nearly as awesome as it used to be. It’s way more commercial, filled with ads in the form of “targeted pins” that appear in your feed, often wildly inappropriate, like a maxi pad pin on a food board. It’s annoying. The way pins are displayed keep changing too, getting smaller with the increased ads until few if any words are even displayed, forcing you to slow down to open each pin to read the description, which bogs down the entire site. Sometimes it’s agonizingly slow. Pinterest used to display the entire text on boards. Now it’s like the site prefers you to write nothing, just pin, pin, pin! The algorithms have changed on emails too, as have he ones that used to allow you the trace the pin back to the original. All gone. It makes the site a lot more boring. However, it is still useful as a virtual bulletin board, which was the original intention. The rest of the stuff just makes me spend way less time on Pinterest, which is probably better.
Amaiya👑 - Please fix glitch / Suggestion
Please fix the glitch that makes it to where, when you exit the app for just a second (say to answer a quick text), that when you come back, the only thing there is the post you where originally looking at and the rest of the screen black. You can’t even scroll down to see comments or look at the suggestions at the bottom, you have to go back out, maybe to the home page. This is very frustrating and annoying. I love Pinterest and use it all the time, so this is a hinderance and the reason why I’m giving it only 3 stars, when otherwise it would be a 5. I’ll look forward to the next update so this issue can be fixed.
Also, a suggestion would be to remove the “search” tab and replace it with the “following” tab again. I think it’s wasteful to have a whole search tab when you can search up anything on the other tabs. I liked having a followers tab and think it’s a bit too much to put the home, following, your interest, etc. in one big tab as I like to keep them separate and make use of all my tabs.
M.peasy - Loss a sense of community
I love Pinterest. I use it daily for both work and pleasure. Lately I have felt that both the functionality and the search have really declined. My searches bring up so many products that it feels as if I’m using the Google Shopping tab. One of the best features of Pinterest was that through community, you were able to find users and boards who shared your aesthetic. By removing the option to view other boards that a pin lives on, it’s virtually erased the ability to discover other verticals and users to follow. I understand that you are trying to promote your own search algorithm, but frankly it will never be as good as my own aesthetic reasoning. It’s so hard to research now and such a frustrating loss.
A few months ago I saw a segment on Chelsea Handler’s Netflix show where she discussed the future of tech and AI, and he made a point that it was important to not lose a level of human connection with all these platforms that we use on a daily basis. The loss of features that make it easier to find like-minded boards and followers really destroys the sense of community on Pinterest. I don’t want it all dictated by algorithms.
iMcD - Pinterest updates have some bugs
I've had Pinterest for years and love how organized and versatile the pins are. Unfortunately, the more you update it, the more dysfunctional it becomes. If I tap on a pin to see the article, it won't load and, on top of that, it will also sometimes freeze in between two pins. When I try to swipe side to side it throws me back ten or so pins and then freezes. It also has so many ads it's hard to scroll through (which is the “price” we pay for having a free app, so, can’t complain too much). I also miss the heart button. After planning a wedding with a shared board between my family and bridal party, I got a lot of feedback from them wondering if I even saw their pin. I wish that or something similar would come back. It would be pretty cool to have a way to create personal notes on pins without changing the description on the bottom. Pinterest is great, but it would make it a lot more user friendly to get the freezing to stop. Thanks for keeping it free though!
AppLove101 - A lot of bugs
I find myself having to log out and back in so often just to get features to work. Very annoying and inconvenient. Also the way you have to switch profiles is soooo annoying. You have to switch to your personal account then switch account and then switch the that accounts business account and all over again to switch back. This is so tedious for someone that runs multiple business accounts. Needs major improvements for the iPad.
UPDATE: Had to come remove a star since I cant even create a pin without restarting my iPad. It says I don’t have permission to at pins. HOW do I not have permission to add pins to a board I created from the account I’m logged into?!??! Only way to get it to work is to restart my device. There shouldn’t be this many bugs for a platform like this. SMH!!!
It also doesn’t registered that you switched counts so your boards don’t show. It just tells y9u to create a new board. So you either have to log out and back in or also restart your device along with the logging out and in. You just never know which process will work. So you have to keep trying until one of them works.
00_jackie - It’s worse than ever
So after being gone a while I started using Pinterest again. Good LORD it’s a wreck! I detest that it is getting even LESS user friendly. It’s very difficult now to even find the individual boards of a user, especially with the sections or whatever they’re called that group boards together... or something. I want to go to their profile and see their boards displayed individually as it used to be, then I can choose to follow the ones I want. I’m on iOS platform, it’s terribly confusing the way it’s set up, lots of work and so frustrating. I DO NOT WANT YOU TO SUGGEST PINS FOR ME!!! The ads are out of control.
The app continues downhill.
Pinterest app has been going downhill for quite some time. I haven't complained until now. I don't know who is tweaking the app with all these ridiculous updates but you need to send them packing. They have no idea what Pinterest users want. Removing the like button was the last straw. When you messed with our notifications and made them obnoxious, confusing and hard to read that was one thing. Bring back the like button. (I don't need the useless patronizing response you're sending out, I found my likes. I want the like button back)
Sakaly22 - Love the site, annoyed with the app.
Okay, I'd love to know why every time you update this app, it seems to become more annoying. Also, why is this the only app on my phone that I consistently have issues with? It closes unexpectedly several times while using it, if I set my phone down while using it and come back after the screen has shut off to save battery, the app has closed and my search has to begin from scratch once more. It freezes up a lot and, of course, closes after several minutes. And for a long time I noticed it wasn't telling me that I had already pinned a pin, so now I'm finding that I have several repeat pins. Let's also add to this, the fact that I have turned off every notification setting possible and I STILL get a little red bubble with a number letting me know "something" has happened. I don't care who my friends follow or who has liked a pin, seriously stop with the notifications! Please, for the love of all of our sanities, get you stuff together and make your app function properly, stop changing the few things that actually work well and start focusing improvements on the things that have been a consistent irritation for a long time now.
Erin909Street - Why “fix” what isn’t broken?
A year or so ago was peek for this app. The home page was mostly pins from people you knew/followed, the inspiration/suggested content was applicable to your actual interests, the notifications were accurate and you could see which pins were saved, and the ads were minimal and less obvious.
Now? It’s essentially unusable. There is never anything on my home screen that I am interested in and a majority of the content shown are ads; I don’t have a single recipe saved which includes meat, as I don’t eat animal protein, yet my homepage is overflowing with crockpot chicken recipes! If multiple pins are saved from the same board, even by different users, you can’t actually see what they’ve saved, instead it just says “4 pins from board x were saved”. Ridiculous! And the notifications are a complete joke! It shows me that I have 28, I look and only four are actually pins of mine that other users have saved, but I can’t actually see which pins those are, and the rest are “More ideas like your art board”. Or whichever board I’ve recently pinned to! UGH!!! Figure it out or it’s yet another deleted app.
Noblett Wife - Cannot leave comments
I absolutely love Pinterest. I use it daily for multiple things. I updated it yesterday and I can no longer leave comments which is upsetting! I have tried on multiple pins and I cannot do not matter how short or long the text is.
Also I cannot stand the new “have you tried it section” it was a great idea in theory but so many dang kids and lazy adults who aren’t paying attention are turning it into another comment section. 95% of the time you can’t truly find out if someone has tried it and been successful. It’s filled with pics of people (why I don’t know) and spam message. I think it’s time to pull that feature. Maybe just have two or three buttons for those who tried it to rate their success with it but make it clear it’s that’s what it’s for. It could be like a thumbs up or down. Or colored buttons.
Please fix/update and I will change my rating. I really do love this app and how it will continue to grow and get better. Just remember simple is best with this app and it works great that way so don’t over think it. Thank you Pinterest team!
DorianLee01 - Used to be a great app but really frustrating
I have used Pinterest for YEARS and I have always loved the content that can be found on this platform. I think it is a great space to share creative ideas and niche interests with others and I really appreciate what Pinterest stands for as a company. However, I don’t know what is the issue with this app now because it used to run so smoothly, but in the past year my app has started to crash constantly, almost every other time that I come across an ad pin. The ads themselves don’t bother me and I don’t even really mind the fact that they come with multiple pictures (unlike most pins that I see on the site) but almost every time I encounter an ad my app completely crashes and I have to reload it. I have a similar problem when I click on a pin to visit the website. Often Pinterest will try to reload the website over and over for no reason to the point where I can’t scroll down on the web page or read the content that I clicked on the link for. This app has become very frustrating to use and a few simple bug fixes could make it so much better.
