Yeeyee403 - I love this app
I love Pinterest so much, it’s such an amazing community and is so much fun to use!! I find it so relaxing and rewarding to build my boards and find new things to love on there. I discover something exciting every day on this app, and I couldn’t be happier while using it. But, I do have a few organization suggestions that could make the app even better for users. First, I frequently find myself frustrated that I can’t make sections within a section within a board, because I love to organize so much and I think that it would be a cool feature that people would enjoy using. Adding onto this, if that idea might be too hard to figure out for some, maybe a group board option? It would be a way to group multiple boards into a pod, kind of like sections within a board, but instead, it would be the boards with the sections in them, but possibly grouped into pods. An example of this could be a pod called “Outfits”. Inside the pod, it has 3 boards, a board for each style the user likes. Within those boards, a user could put the components of an outfit into the sections, like shoes, clothes, accessories, etc. I think it would add a whole new level to our home pages and make using Pinterest so much easier and more exciting. It would also be cool to have possible themes for these boards, like background colors we could choose and pod titles. Again, I love this app and use it all the time!! Thank you so much for your time
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
Karebear2984 - Stop changing it constantly
I love Pinterest, I have for a while now. However, they constantly are changing their formatting & the way it’s set up. Sometimes it’s for the better; I loved when they added the sections to boards as this made it way easier to organize pins, boards, & keep track of it all. But it’s not always a good thing. Recently they updated it & got rid of the A-Z on my home page which can make it a pain if you want to pin something in the lower end of the alphabet & have a lot of boards. Or if you want to look at a board without searching the board specifically (sometimes I may forget what I titled a board) & just want to look under Q because I know I have it under a board for quotes for example. So my point is the changes they make aren’t always positive. And even if you’re like me & use Pinterest a lot it’s hard to keep up with the “new” way of doing things & set up they may have changed it to. Kinda like if someone constantly keeps giving you an updated phone, you’ll figure it sure, but if they give you one all the time it gets annoying as you’re trying to keep up with how does it function now? I mean way too constant. There may be features you really like that they do away with completely & that may ultimately make you use it less. Stop it Pinterest team. I know you’re working on improving it, & that’s great, but don’t fix what isn’t broken.
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!
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!
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!
WonderGround13 - Long-time user but hate some of the updates
I’ve loved Pinterest since a friend got me onto it, it’s perfect for my writing work and image references. I’ve stuck it out through the rough patches cause it’s just that handy. Small things here and there I can live with, but the most recent update has got things going pretty screwy and making it hard to use the mobile app.
The most recent update took away the side-scrolling alphabet letter list on the board selection. I have A LOT of boards spread across TWO accounts, and I tend to move very fast when I get on a spree. And when I say a lot, I mean I’ve tapped out at the original board count before and i just keep going up! So you can imagine how time-consuming it is to have to manually scroll through Ever. Single. Board. to find the one I want to pin to. Please bring that back.
Also, on the mobile app, the board selection tab while pinning is slippery AF. It’s so incredibly difficult to manually scroll cause the list keeps trying to slide itself closed at the bottom when I scroll up. If I’m trying to access boards not already in the top three selection, just throw the whole list open and keep it in place until the user closes it themselves, don’t let it go trying to close at it scrolls up or not open all the way when I’m trying to scroll down.
Barbqman - Can only tell tech support about listed problems
Pinterest is pretty good unless something isn't working right, but just try to tell them something is wrong if it doesn't happen to be one of the very few problems they've decided to list on their help page. Apparently, Pinterest thinks everything is perfect and any difficulties are user problems because the available options are only about how to use it right. There seems to be no email address, etc. to which to send problems that they don't want to hear about. Well, too bad. Here's a maddening problem:
If you are viewing anything that has to do with Taste of Home recipes after a minute or so a T of H ad will appear on the left and a larger one on the right. Together these block out a significant part of the screen. (I'm using an iPad 2 Air with iPadOS 14.2). You can close the ad on the left by touching the X in the upper right hand corner and it goes away completely. However, the larger one on the right simply turns off the ad and leaves a big white rectangle where the ad used to be, which continues to obliterate the same amount of the page as the ad did. There's no way to get rid of the white box. This does appear to be a problem with the app since the ads don't even appear on the T of H web page. Drives me crazy...almost as crazy as not being able to find a way to report the problem!
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.
Cats4ever!😺❤️ - I love it but.... some stuff has to change.
I used to love Pinterest. As a baker and writer I loved looking through so many recipes and and different posts. I still love the format and everything about the app. But I have tried to post my opinions in the comments, no bad language or anything and Pinterest won’t let me. People are constantly swearing and typing inappropriate stuff but I can’t post my own opinions. I will keep Pinterest because of my hobbies, but it if uncalled for to not allow someone to post something they want or believe in. People are constantly voicing their own opinions but I can’t. It is not up to you to tell me what I can and can’t say, I understand that it is not totally designed for voicing your opinions but if you have a comment section, allow people to say what they want. Just fix the problem more social media platforms are falling into, you can’t stifle everyones voice, it’s not right. Pinterest is an amazing app for anything else, bakers, crafters, and writers or anyone else with hobbies should really enjoy the app. Thank you Pinterest for fueling my imagination and crafting, for years and hopefully more years to come. Just fix the one issue and it will be a five star app, and Pinterest will be unique from everywhere else people go for crafts and posts and whatever hobbies they are into.
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!
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!
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.
Melisska72 - Bring back “Search By Board”!!
I’ve used Pinterest for years and love the ability to be able find ideas & inspiration! I mainly use the mobile version of Pinterest because of how smooth and effortless it is (along with the fact I’m always on my phone!) and I find that just searching for terms doesn’t yield varied results, so about 90% of my time I search things and select “view by board” to browse the collections other people have made! Being able to see other people’s “finds” or their own uploads is a perfect way to fill up my own boards. If I wanted to search for a certain aesthetic or look for certain types of recipes for example, how else would I find good boards to follow so that I can see their posts in my feed? However, when I last updated it, the feature that allowed us to search by board on mobile is gone!! I can’t even hit a picture and be able to trace it to the boards it shows up on. All the pins on my main feed I can’t even see where they came from. I expand my results not by hoping Pinterest’s own algorithms pick up what they think I want to see, but by what boards and pinners I follow!! Please bring this back! The fun of Pinterest is in cultivating all kinds of resources or pictures in one place, what good is that if I can’t even have the option to view the ones others have made?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Breannalll - Where are the comments?
Okay, before I explain my issue I need to say a few things. First if all I've never had this issue before. This only started happening after I made a new account. Second of all, the app is updated so that's not a reason why this is happening.
Now onto my issue. As I said before, I've never had this problem until I made a brand new account. Ever since I made it I haven't been able to view comments on a pin. There isn't even a comment section on any of them! This is pretty annoying because comments are a big part of any social media app, especially Pinterest because you can't post a tried pin or see other people's tried pins without the comment section. This has been going on for a few months, and I haven't been able to fix it. I tried logging out and logging back in. I tried to delete the app and redownload it and then log back in. I restarted my phone and logged back in. I even tried to make another new account, and nothing worked. People on Reddit have said that they're experiencing this problem as well, and some say that the comment sections will disappear and then come back. I'm just really annoyed by this and I hope that this problem is fixed. Don't get me wrong, I like Pinterest. But I just hate that I can't see any comments.
If we can't have the comments back, at least add a like button feature.
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?
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.
GHOOOSSSTTT - awesome but
hi! i love pinterest, i’ve been using it since like 2012 when i got my first ipod touch. It’s been awesome and i have like, a gazillion boards for fashion and art references and nerdy projects and i love it BUUUTTTT ya’ll switched up the way we choose the board we’re saving a pin to and i am not okay. I had the max number of boards (150?) and then when the max number rose i’ve continued to make more and more boards and honestly??? manually scrolling past every single board i’ve made since i was 14 instead of the alphabet slider is TOUGH but then to top it off, whenever i pass the board im looking for, when i try to scroll up it just closes the whole screen and im back starting at the pin i wanted to save but couldn’t. It is such a hassle and the select-a-board screen is so sensitive that sometimes it takes me like 3-4 tries to pin something. and when i use a board that has a ton of sections in it, i have to successfully navigate the new way to pin things ✨twice✨ to actually pin something. I’m in my 20s, i grew up on tech, im not dumb. please at least make the slider less sensitive, and i’d really appreciate getting the alphabet slider back. i’m dying 🥺
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
Bugsy too - How my day just gets better!
Since really joining Pinterest, not just sneaking onto the site now and then, I have become a bigger person in heart and soul. Not just counting the extra fat on my bottom that seems to grow bigger and bigger because of the ‘Rona virus and me just sitting on it. Any fat around my waist is also because of the that virus but here I need to put blame where blame is due. ON ME! But just a little on Pinterest too...because I become glued to the site for hours on end, looking at pictures of wonderful foods...I swear they just leave the internet screen and absorb right into my body. Really it doesn’t happen that way. Joking people, just joking. But not about the becoming absorbed in the subject matter. It is such a wonderful site that takes me away from everything for awhile. Thank you Pinterest, a heartfelt thank you for all the deliciousness I see, the beautiful art, the intricate sewing, the gorgeous quilting and paperwork, the ‘everything’ to see with just the tap of a button. How fortunate we are to view things from our very own country and the countries of other like individuals. What an honor. I am honored. Thank you.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Whisper_Aces - Wish it could be five stars...
... but the app keeps freezing and crashing! My iPhone is completely up to date software-wise, and I’ve downloaded the latest version of the app, so that’s up to date, too. Now, I love Pinterest. It gives me ideas and let’s me enjoy my different fandoms and all kinds of stuff. I can get lost scrolling through my homepage for hours! Except, far too often, I’ll be happily scrolling along, pinning things to different boards, and everything freezes so I can neither keep going, not go back, nor exit the pin I was on to see the rest of the page. Sometimes I can go to another section of the app, like search or my profile, but a lot of times the screen goes black and won’t respond until I exit the app. And then, if I simply re-open the app it’s still frozen. I have to close out of it completely and re-start the app to see anything or have any interaction, and by then I’ve lost the pin I was on and I just have to hope I can find it again. It’s very frustrating! I’ve rage-quit Pinterest, something that seems impossible, but that happens at least once a week, because the freezing and the blank screen happens several times a day.
ClawdeenMe22 - I LOVE PINTEREST 10/10 Would ALWAYS recommend
As the title states I friggin LOOOOOOOVE Pinterest. It was one of the very first apps I downloaded when I was given my very first smart phone SO MANY YEARS AGO 🥰 it holds a very special place in my heart ♥️ However, these updates.... why? Why Pinterest? WHY!!!!????? You take AWAY features we LOVE, give us features/performance “updates” no one asked for, and you don’t listen to your users when they tell you how much they love old features! You change the app and basically tell people “too bad, get used to it b***h! “ I HATE that 😤 Why did you take off the recommendation setting at the top of search results?? When I look for recipes I LOVE seeing recommendations for other things I might like because 9.9/10 I find something even BETTER than what I was looking for originally. I love going down the rabbit hole of Pinterest recommendations 🥰 but now it’s just “explore” or “shop”. I have no interest in shopping on this app. At all. I don’t come to Pinterest to shop, I come to Pinterest because I’m a struggling young adult who can’t cool for herself and I NEED HELP!!!!! 😫😭😖☹️ I absolutely HATE to see that Pinterest has updated when it happens; I know it’s just going to be another blow to my love for the app...😔😔😔
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!
Izzy_yzzi - Pretty good, could improve
So it’s pretty good. Much less toxic than other social media’s. However, here are my suggestions for improvement.
First of all, it refreshes too often. If I go to my profile, and then I go back to the home page, it refreshes. I wish it would only refresh when you open the app, or when you ask it too by swiping down. Also, when you open the app it shows you pins, and then it refreshes. This is annoying because if you see a pin you really like, and you want to save it, you can’t.
Secondly, I think something should be done about the spam in the comment section of many pins. In many comment sections, you will find many comments like these: “heyyy everyone, I know these comments are super annoying but I’ve been working on my boards and I’d love if you check them out and maybe drop a follow 🤪💖😊.” These comments are so common that they hide comments about the actual post. Not only that, they are annoying, and make me not want to use the app. I think these comments drive away many users of the app.
Those are my two big complaints. There are other, smaller issues, however they don’t cause problems and are hardly noticed
Tvine8492 - Frustrating Turn For The Worst
I’ve used Pinterest from the beginning. I used it for almost every aspect of my life from pinning teaching ideas to holiday crafts to recipes and self care. The recent updates to turn it into primarily a shopping app are outrageously frustrating. I can’t search for anything anymore. I went to try to find ideas for sewing projects, beaded bracelet ideas, IVF organization and it’s all just products products products from big box stores. That’s not inspiration, I know about Target already thank you. They also removed the feature where you could search for other users boards from the app. I used to find the best ideas from searching users boards, like seeing what others had on their “camping” or “mending” boards for example but now you have to be so specific and you can only see sponsored single posts it makes it hard to discover anything new. It’s just unbelievable that now when I search for something like “jewelry projects” or “sewing projects” I just get a million Etsy and Michaels listings for already made projects. Completely useless and I’m so irritated. I’m sad that the golden days of Pinterest were I would turn to it for everything seem to have passed.
Ab12cd1 - Commenting on pins needs to be fixed
I’m not sure if it’s the same on computers, but on mobile, the comments really need to improve. When you want to reply to someone’s comment, you can, but if you want to reply to someone’s comment on another person’s comment, you have to manually put the “@“ and write out their whole name. And most of the time this doesn’t even work because their name either has a space in it or their name won’t show up for some reason!
Another problem with the comments is that when you reply to someone’s comment and someone tries to reply to you within that comment, you get the notification saying like “oh, so-and-so replied to your comment,” but when you click on that notification, it won’t take you to the comment, so there’s no way for you to see it unless you somehow know exactly which pin your comment was on, then go on a whole scavenger hunt to find that one pin that you probably didn’t even save.
I really hope this gets fixed because I really like have conversations with people in the comment section. And on top of it getting fixed, I want Pinterest to add a feature that lets you see all the pins you’ve commented on, like how Twitter has the “Tweets & Replies” option.

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...
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.
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.
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?
3 Head tall chibi - amazing! just a few errors
this app is absolutely AMAZING! i have gotten so much inspo from it and have even lost a few kilograms in a few months because of some of the content regarding weight loss and workouts. despite this, i think there are a few things that need a little tweaking: so first off, sometimes all i want to do is post a meme in the comment section or something but i cant! please, PLEASE add the photo feature back in the comment section! second is just a minor inconvenience that i dont know if anyone else has. sometimes when i get a message or update, the pop up notification thing starts glitching and flashing and stuff. third and last, i think we should have a full list of who we follow. i needed to find this one makeup artist and i couldn’t find her because she hadnt posted recently. anyways, i hope someone from the pinterest rean read this and if so, thank you so much for doing so! great app, keep goin’ regards- ✨thekidgotinagain✨💖💜💙
Kejks - I Hate Idea Pins.
I have loved pinterest for years and use it almost every day. I enjoy that it is more simple and unique and doesn't have updated features every few weeks trying to compete with all the other social apps. However, I absolutely hate the new idea pins. If I wanted to group pins together I would put them in a board or a section of a board - I don't see the need for idea pins. They are pretty much all I am seeing in my 'more ideas' and 'posts like this' sections and it's really turning me off the app. I wish you could filter searches to just show photos/idea pins/video etc and turn off idea pins coming up in your suggestions. I often see a single photo that I would like to save in amongst an idea pin but i dont want to save all the photos so I have to just scroll away and hope I see that photo again one day to save it layer...I just dont get it and it clogs up my feed. Also please bring back the ability to search for boards by name on the app, it is still a feature for desktops and I wish they kept it on apps too.
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
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.
Ice princess Charlotte - Good overall, except for some major comments bugs
Hello!! Each update the UI gets much more readable and easy to use, which is a definite win!! Everything is more organised and clean :D however I have been experiencing some MAJOR comments bugs. I’ve tried the basics, such as restarting the app, redownloading the app, re-signing back into my account, going through the desktop version, and every single time comments have disappeared. They’ll show up in my notifications tab however when I click on them and it takes me to the comments chain it isn’t there, nor does it reappear. Sometimes entire comments chains are unopenable entirely. I’m not certain if this is a common issue or not, but overall this is my most common and frustrating gripe with the app. All else is fine, and gets better with each update!!
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
Charger 770 - Inappropriate contact…
I was searching up cars on Pinterest I clicked on a pin of a car I liked them I scrolled down to the related pins and there was multiple pins of women wearing sexual bimbo clothing, I reported some of them and they kept reappearing and it wouldn’t let me hide them nor I would report them the pins just keep on reappearing, I clicked on the pin of a car that did NOT relate to the sexual bimbo clothing, I’m not trying to be rude but it’s true I clicked on a pin then I scrolled down and there was inappropriate contact, cars have got NOTHING to do with sexual clothing, is this why Pinterest is having problems lately, but it’s strange really strange? Has anyone had these issues before where people click on a pin of (cars) for an example and they scroll down at the related pins and they saw something inappropriate not ok?
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!
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.
Annqualise - Great, but could use some improvements
PLEASE MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE SECTIONS WITHIN SECTIONS!!! I have talked to so many people about this and they all agree that it would make the app so much better. Basically every week since I first downloaded Pinterest 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.
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.
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.
Omeega4 - Some issues overall great app and space
The issues I have is I can’t seem to comment tried pins on desktop or mobile. It’s like the feature disappeared, there wasn’t any indication of what happened because I’m not the only one experiencing the trouble. It was a nice social feature and I like seeing other people’s tried stuff.
Please bring back.
It would also be nice to have to carousel feature on mobile like other social platforms where you can share multiple images in one post. This problem didn’t bother me as much.
Otherwise this app has so many good features, content, user interface and friendly online presence.
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!
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.
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.
Legoelvesfan17 - Addicted but needs a lil work!!
What Pinterest should add is like a download for videos. It’s annoying when I really like a video but have to screen record it all so that I can show my friends and stuff. If you could do that I would be grateful, and not only me but pretty much everyone! .Although I’m so addicted to this. I love just looking through. And as I said, I got addicted. I spend hours on there, and it feels like 30 minutes. There is always something knew. And when I finally convinced my friend to get it, she said he home area was bassicly her mind. It’s a great way to chat with your friends, I love sending them pins I’ve found. This is defiantly a must need.
Ps. This is also a great way for inspo and ideas.
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.
Badgerpelt - AMAZING
I use Pinterest all the time! It’s let’s me share my art with the world and find inspiration for my art! I also enjoy attending little art contests that sometimes take place! I’ve hosted one myself! This is a great app for inspiration, memes, art and finding people like you! I’ve made a couple of Pinterest friends! Finding people with same interests as you and being able to have a conversation with them can spark some great ideas for projects and/or collaborations! And, hey! Just self promoting here. Go check out MY account! Badgerpelt! I Post art if you’re interested! ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗOk! DEFINITELY recommend getting this app! Five stars from me!
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
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
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.
Eve0618 - ALL of my accounts deleted by pinterest
i LOVED pinterest - it was my favourite app. then yesterday, when i tried to log into my account, i found that it had been deactivated. i have seven accounts to i tried to log into one of my others to let my followers know but that, too had been deactivated. ALL of my accounts were deleted by pinterest. randomly. i contacted them many times to no avail. i even made two new accounts to contact my followers but they wer deactivated the second i tried to log in again. i am so devastated - i worked so hard on every single one of my accounts and for them to just be deleted? i had worked so hard - i had thousands of followers. i hope that this is a glitch that can be fixed, as i cannot think of a reason why each NEW account i make is deactivated too.
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.
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.
Identity theft isn't a joke - No filter
For the past couple months I haven’t been able to filter my searches. I can’t look for boards or people related to my searches and it’s real annoying since I like to spend time looking at boards similar to mine. I’ve uninstalled the app and reinstalled it but it’s still the same on all my devices. The search bar goes all the way to the end and the filter button is just gone. Is there a way to fix this? I looked at the customer support link and there’s isn’t anything that really relates to this problem.
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.
Alex o'reilly - WHAT WAS THE REASON!!???
I usually love Pinterest but the new update that takes away the refined search button makes the app intolerable to use. I really cannot even begin to fathom why they would possibly take away such a good and widely used/loved feature?? Like what would possibly be the benefit? I tried to look for a more direct way to give feedback on this, because I honestly doubt the people who are making these choices care to read an App Store review, or care at all if the recent updates are anything to go by - but I came up short so this will have to do. But I am BEGGING you to put that feature back for the sake of mental wellbeing. 2020 has me walking a very fine like and I clearly don’t have the emotional maturity to deal with this ridiculous change right now. PLEASE put it back.
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! 👋🏼
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!
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!
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.
Cheshbr - Not like it used to be
I have been a Pinterest user for many years, but of late, it’s becoming less functional and I don’t open it as often as I used to. I am an elderly male and I see pictures of objects and people for which I have absolutely no interest but I can’t get rid of them. I see For You pages of nonsense and pop up notifications about female fashion and cosmetics, for example. I tag these as irrelevant but I can’t kill off Updates I’m not remotely interested in, such as Blouse Designs. Ideas for you is another load of nonsense. I have no problem with these categories. I just want to be able to delete the ones I never asked for, or those for which I have no further interest
BryaLyon - Ads silence other audio
I go onto Pinterest to look for ideas, a nice pastime while listening to podcasts or music. Haven’t been on in a while and now I’ve noticed a disappointing change: every time there’s an ad, or anything with video even if there’s no sound, the app silences my other audio. This is really frustrating as it can happen several times a minute if I’m scrolling (sometimes needing to switch back into my podcast app to get to play again).
I’m ok with ads, I get it, but sound overriding my other audio? Major turn off.
I’m going to Pinterest for creative visual content and as something different to other social media apps.
I like the app, but I’ll be avoiding it from now on.
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.
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 !
Pheeeenereeee - I love this app
I love Pinterest I really do, it's simple and easy to use.
This new update is terrible though, the reason I use Pinterest is to get images/inspiration for things. Pinterest will no longer let me download images and it's been a genuine struggle. it first started within changing the layout of the story like images so there's always a play button or the like and comment thing over the top but now I can't download normal images either.
I hope this is a bug issue and not a change made by Pinterest because if it is I may as well delete the app.

TJSM❤️ - Love Pinterest ❤️❤️❤️
Amazing inspiration for literally everything in life!
Ralex31 - Everything but the ads!
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
What if u - Love this Pinterest
I really enjoy everything about it...
Lunch lady L - Suggestion approved
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.
Fbbhdbgbg - How could you not love it?
Pinterest is awesome and the app is super convenient!
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.
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
HIITSH.COM - Pinteresting
Have had Pinterest for a while now. Love it. Great for collecting ideas for later use.
Guyann - J'adore
C'est un site très intéressant est une grande variété je l'adore cinq étoiles pour Pinterest xxxxx
Greyt Owner - Review
I have been enjoying all the different subjects, ideas and crafts I found on Pinterest. Great selection!!
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 !! 😁
Deaf-one - LOVE it!!!!!
All the varieties it has to offer and especially all those FAB recipes!!!
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!!!
Sksksksnsd - Cant scroll
Something is wrong with Pinterest. When I try to save something to a specific board, it won’t let me scroll to the one I want. What I mean is that it won’t lemme choose from all of the boards. It will just let me choose from the three that the app chose which is random. Please fix this!!!
Thisisabruhcommenr - where’s the likes?
can y’all please put the likes back on the comments
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??
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!!!!!
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.
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!!!
Oogaboogaunicorns - Removed Best Feature
At some point an update removed ability to refine your search to just boards, and so now finding the pins you want is almost entirely fruitless. This was the ONLY way I ever searched because it worked a far far better than just searching for pins. I still use the app but barely, because now when I search I’ll rarely ever find anything usable amongst all the irrelevant pins it brings up.
Despite this feature not existing anymore, there is still a page on their website telling you you CAN search for boards. This mislead me into wasting a fair amount of time emailing back and forth with customer service, thinking something was wrong with my app.
Jocelyn_w - board search function ?
i loved this app and used to use it all the time, but i’ve noticed that when you go to use the search function, you can no longer search for boards with what you’ve searched, only see the pins that come up with the result. this sucks and for me, defeats the purpose of the app because that was how i used it, looking at other people’s boards. i keep thinking this is a bug, because you used to be able to select “boards” to search, but update after update, this feature doesn’t come back. it’s very frustrating and making me kind of hate this app because i can barely search for things efficiently.
Skkskskskskak - go back to old update!
The new update makes the app so much harder to use. You can’t even scroll down to a certain broad when you want to pin something.
Ratingeditingapps❤️💗❤️ - bring back boards
you can’t search for boards anymore and it’s getting ridiculous. a while ago the ability to see what board something was being saved to was being removed, but for me, this new update is the last straw. that used to be the one feature i absolutely RELIED on for pinterest, and now it’s gone. on top of that, i don’t like how the new update changed the interface for pinning a pin to a board. it makes it nearly impossible to pin things. if things seriously don’t change and this app goes back to being more practical, i’m going to have to stop using it because it is far to frustrating. which is incredibly unfortunate because i’ve loved pinterest for years.
3m1lymc - refined search
i love pinterest so much but the new update doesn’t allow me to search by board, only by pin. please fix this, i miss searching boards :/
Stephie2forever - Ads constantly interrupting my music
I really love the app, but i’m quite annoyed by the ads always stoping my music so that they can play whenever i’m scrolling throught anything! Even if i’m scrolling quite fast it just mute my music before putting it back on
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.
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.
SpeedyPixel2 - Download videos to your camera roll
Can you guys add a feature that lets us add videos to your camera roll? If you can that would be great!
TinaMina78 - What happened???
I love Pinterest & have been using it for years. But, since maybe a week ago, I’ve been having a problem when saving pins to my boards. I can only see random three boards and can’t scroll down to my other boards. Please fix this so I can use the app again & change my rating into a 5 star again!!
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.
Tjhsjcf - HATE the new layout!!
I absolutely love this app to death but the new layout ssssuuuucccckkkksssss!!!!! Please change it back!!!
Qwrrtuihzrhfaxguydst - REPLIES WON’T SHOW
I can’t see replies on comments; if I tap on a ‘see 18 replies’ button, it only shows 9 replies. I can’t even hold a simple conversation in the comments section anymore.
I didn’t have any of these problems before you decided to update it again. Yeah, why is it that none of the updates seem to fix anything? All I’m asking is that you either reply to this review with some advice, or fix your app. I’m not the only one having this problem.
Asos19 - Updates? Or downgrades?
So now you took away the “Following” tab on the app, which let me see posts from only people I followed, and left me with a nonsense “Today” tab, full of random categories that have nothing to do with my pins. I came to terms with the fact that you broke your own “For You” algorithm years ago, when you succumbed to garbage ads, and suddenly because I’d pinned a plaid shirt, I would OBVIOUSLY like a plaid stuffed rabbit, and cutlery set. I don’t think I can take much more punishment guys. Can we have some real improvement soon?
ZooieyRae - Everything thing else seems to work right, but...
Problem I have. Some replies I can click on to open up, and some I can’t.
Here’s an example: I made a comment, and I decided to continue what I wrote by replying to my OWN comment. Probably a day or two later, I CAN’T OPEN IT! It doesn’t respond, and the only way it sort of reacts is when I hold my finger on it but still doesn’t open! Please fix this!
Lunar_Starlight - Won't let me view replies
I really like the app, but occasionally it just... won't let me look at replies to comments

Dc2989 - Can’t search for boards
Newer updates have removed the option to search for boards.
Kailee can't find a nickname! - Will use as a last resort
This is the perfect place to catch a virus on your computer. The majority of the links redirect you to virus filled websites. Looking at pictures is nice but if you want further information on where to find things in the picture, beware! If they aren’t broken links, they’re corrupt!
Kawaii Uni 945 - switching between accounts
After switching between my accounts, it won’t let me use my main account. Also bring back the ability to search for boards
MadiSepticEye - love the new updates but is still needs a lot of improvement
i love the fact that now pins say who uploaded them. this is a really great feature to help smaller accounts start to gain followers and also helps big accounts continue to grow. however, the new update has also brought some features i strongly dislike as well as lacking so features that i think would be very useful.
why can’t you search for boards anymore? being able to type in any search term and browse the pins, user profiles, and boards related to that term has always been a staple search feature, so why was the board searching feature removed? a lot of the time looking at boards was so useful because it allowed me to find exactly what i was looking for. only being able to search pins has made it a lot harder.
additionally, the removal of this feature has done nothing but hurt small accounts. my account has ~12k followers and i find that my accounts growth has slowed down significantly. the removal of this feature is detrimental to small accounts as users will now only see the most popular pins for each search.
honestly i’m super disappointed in this update and hope this feature will be restored in the future.
Happynicee - It’s good but the posting.....
The posting for videos I would like that because I’m in iPad it would be better if you can post videos on phone and iPad I would really like to get more followers... but really other than that I think it’s a really good app to watch videos and see pictures and save them and not get a virus from saving from google really when I was saving from google my iPad was laggy but from pintrest it wasn’t laggy. Anyway if the person that made pintrest sees this please let ipad post videos like I really want to post videos it’s unfair for the people that wanna post videos and they don’t have a iPad.... so pls and other than that it’s a really good app I like it oh and I think in pintrest u should allow people to make pins over there like umm make there own pictures there should be a section for that so yeah pls pintrest if u seeing this pls try the things I said I really like the app tho it’s good
Foowjakwpgpeishahaovk - switching accounts
there is an issue when jumping from account to account on mobile. it won’t let me access one account. every time I select it, it just brings me to a different account.
Julia1710 - Can be better
I have about 300 pics in one pin and I went to organize it but everytime I move stuff up and down it ruins the already moved stuff. I can’t even categorize it by color, it’s so frustrating. It just moves over like bubbles as you try and drag the picture up and moves all the other pictures in a different place. Completely ruins the point.
Lizzypuppet1711 - new update sucks
can’t search for boards anymore? i can only search pins or profiles, if i want to search boards i have to use desktop. what gives
Cajun Canadian - One of my favorite apps!
I wish Pinterest had an ad blogger for all of the blogs linked. They really clog things up, but otherwise, I like that it’s FREE and I don’t think we are limited in how many pins we can save. I also like being able to comment on pins and share pics of recipes we’ve tried. Very helpful!
Pho-einx - The best part of Pinterest
I love this because I love looking at nail ideas and we don’t have to go to google that takes a long time but here is neat and fun and super way you pick a theme and get have fun thanks for making this app
