Great app!

I got Pinterest a couple days ago and I am loving it so far! The quality is good, the app never crashes, and it’s fast! 11/10 would recommend.
And Now I’m Bored
by Alyellalee on 2019/04/25 07:23
Absolutely HATE not being able to scroll through specific categories anymore. Super redundant content. SO MANY RANDOM ADDS and I definitely miss the “like” button. I don’t want to pin everything I see and like.
Good app but...
by HumanBeing051467839 on 2019/04/25 02:16
Its a good app but the only problem is I’ve been hacked now twice. It kicked me out and made me sign in and it said I couldn’t access it. As I said it’s the SECOND time. I have not broken any rules or guidelines on the app ever. They need to fix this. I don’t want to keep creating accounts.
I don’t understand

Enough with the updates
by wayyy2manyapps on 2019/04/24 17:43
Having to update the app every week is getting really old and the app isn’t getting better with all the updates
New feature (dark theme) when??? :$
by imArmando on 2019/04/24 16:55
Bug fixes & performance updates are great and all, but it gets boring after sometime, so can we please get a feature from time to time that makes updating worthwhile, a dark mode will make me happy. It’s already there on mobile web version, would be nice if you rushed that a bit

When you do research to verify facts and find Pinterest has a lower accuracy than Wikipedia. It gets very fusrtating

I’m not a Pinterest mom
by Мs. Lei™ on 2019/04/24 04:46
And this app URKS ME. I don’t need my account LINKED to google. Stop tracking everything I do. I go on there like 4 times a month. MAYBE!! I can tell this app wasn’t made with Black or Brown people in mind. Or maybe I’m not searching the right things. Either way..this app is not what the hype house wives are making it out to be and since it got mixed up with Google. Find something else to do.

All of the things that I have pinned disappeared. What the heck..
So annoying
by WHAT DO I DO SOMEONE HELP on 2019/04/23 06:30
Why do you guys put so many “wallpapers” but there’s no way to save the image or even put it at full screen to screenshot. You just click it THINKING you’re gonna get the full image and it goes to a dumb website where you can’t even save it or screenshot it there. Like I never written a review before but this hits my nerve every time

Decent app but it freezes up all of the time. Rather annoying when your trying to look for things (patterns, recipes etc). If not for that I’d give 5 stars.

by natalie.m200 on 2019/04/22 21:25
i would give 0 stars if i could. my account was recently suspended when i violate none of the rules. i guess if you pin too many pins they call it “spamming” and they suspend your account. i’ve tried appealing multiple times and none work. i had this pinterest account for a while and had lots of pins, now they’re all gone 😤😤

by blah4me on 2019/04/22 07:10
Why are these screens always getting stuck. They never used too now I don’t enjoy the app as much as I used to
Too many ads
by lightstreaming on 2019/04/22 05:15
The ads have gotten out of control. Too often, I’m finding myself searching for content within the pin (similar to click-bait articles) or trying to find a way to close the pop-up ads without success. I am getting beyond frustrated with an app that so have loved for years. Come on, Pinterest, enough is enough.
Why I live his app so much
by hiiiiiiiiii doenload app now on 2019/04/22 02:45
I absolutely love Pinterest I like it so much because it has some much great ideas and can have funny jokes and important stuff. With Pinterest you will always find something cool, when I need an idea I know we’re to look, I just search what I want and boom found it. I love this app and totally recommend it for you
Ugh
by shanteeezyy on 2019/04/22 02:26
Pinterest is a great app. I just hate how if I leave the app for 1 min to respond to a text for instance, when I go back in, it refreshes and starts me all over again. It wasn't always like this. Please go back!

by Jenn060809 on 2019/04/21 21:51
If you’re going to allow advertisers to redirect us to their page, at least demand that they take us to the page for which we clicked. Sending me to the home page is bullsh*t. Fix it!!!! It’s already irritating enough! Wayfair! Living Spaces! et al!!!!
Keeps refreshing everything

Refresh & Refresh & Refresh & Refresh &
by spiritusbastard on 2019/04/21 20:05
I like using this app and have for a long time but the constant and aggressive refreshing throws me off all the time. It’s frustrating and makes me give up exploring for images very frequently.

by Wjt39 on 2019/04/21 20:02
In your zeal to gather more information on your users, today I was not allowed to add something to my board (that I had been using for 3 or so years) unless I added more information. Well you got what you wanted but in the process, you wiped out all that I had saved. I am finished with Pinterest. Good bye! You seemed to function well until you went for your IPO. I guess all that added info was worth it to you. You are no longer worth it for me.

Good tool - needs tweaking
by Thee Fishsticks on 2019/04/21 16:48
Before launching my business, I used it as a source of inspiration, and still do. I like the art and design resources. It really is a place of inspiration and less irritating than Instagram. I switched to the business account, and it offers analytics to see how much traffic is coming through Pinterest. I like this but sometimes find the numbers dubious. They post the average number of viewers in my profile, which seem random, and frankly, unbelievably high at times, and I can’t figure out where these numbers come from since they swing dramatically up and down and arent based on my actual followers. Having said that, I can post an image that links to my product for free and the analytics from my store tells me roughly how much traffic came through Pinterest. As I wrote earlier, Pinterest also generates this info but I don’t always trust its accuracy. For instance, I’ve seen a pin get 100 views and 10 clicks, and then the next day it’s analytics will say it got 0 views and one click. How is it possible that someone can click on the image to take them to the link without also viewing it? What is going on? Why does data sometimes change dramatically overnight either up or down? I’m guessing they are developing things and since this is free I’m not complaining, only pointing out the unreliability of the information. This has held me back from paying for an ad. If I can see that these numbers made sense or seemed reliable I might start running ads through Pinterest. I would also like to see a return of a date and time stamp on an image post. When businesses or blogs share an image of a product it’s helpful for people to see the date and know the timeliness of it so they aren’t disappointed when they click through to the link only to realize that it is 5 years old and gone.

Love this app! Not the new feature
by MrsCastanon on 2019/04/21 14:23
Have been using this app for years and I love it! I do however hate the new feature when searching. Anytime I press on a pin, after going back to my search it starts to only show the same exact thing I looked at instead of the search. If I wanted to do that, I would just go and look under that specific pin and look under the “more like this”. Now I have to search the same thing over again so I can view the different options. Easy to do but tedious and inconvenient. Because it’s about viewing different options. Not the same one I just saw over and over again. Example: searching ways to use pesto. Click on a pin about pesto pizza. Go back to my ways to use pesto search, now only pesto pizza pops up instead of the different ways to use it.
Dear Pinterest
by feyre2018 on 2019/04/21 14:16

I love this app! I just have some things I would like to mention and ask. First, will ads from company’s be on Pinterest for promotion? Also I would like to access my pins offline. Whenever I have no network connection I can not access my own pins. But everything else on the app is HQ and easy to use! Thanks!
Update

Good But Pictures Are Poor Quality
by R-meh dues on 2019/04/21 06:07
Everything about Pinterest is addictive and it’s the best app for finding fresh ideas about pretty much anything. What I really don’t like though is that images I see or download are in very low quality and I have to Google them for a decent resolution. The added step is really annoying.

Incomprehensible help system
by Alabaster Penguin on 2019/04/20 20:32
The menus look great and they’re fun to navigate between each generic pastel colored bubble, but none offer anything other than almost boilerplate explanation with little guidance other than go to settings. If you need to do more than the three things listed in the settings, you’ll be referred to a browser version of the site... which gives you the same three options in the settings. And if you wish to contact a human, good luck.

account suspension
by herron. on 2019/04/20 18:53
i’d give it 0 stars if i could. multiple times, my account got suspended. i violate none of the rules, and i still end up getting suspended. i’ve been a pinterest user for YEARS, and now i’m not using the app anymore. it’s not worth it at all. if you like pinning a lot, this app isn’t for you, because they’re probably going to suspend you!!
Great App, but has some bugs and needs some improvements
by Graphic-S on 2019/04/09 15:46
Pinterest is a Great app, and I’ve been using it for about 3 years now. The developers are really great at adding and fixing features. But, some things are just ignored. If your looking at a pin or website for that pin, and you close the app for awhile, when your open the app again, the pin will glitch there for a few moments, then it will take you to your feed. This glitch will happen every time I open the app for the next few hours. This gets annoying and sometimes it just freezes like this. Another glitch is when I look at pins on my home feed, after a wile the feed will lag and just freeze. And a few minutes later the app will crash. Also, sometimes when I open the app the home feed glitches, making all the pins look like a file, single pin behind another pin. I usually have to turn my (newer) device off and then on to get rid of this glitch. Sometimes for the pins it will say that people posted a photo or a comment for it (example- (2 photos) and when you click on it no photos appear or no comments appear. Sometimes it says 2 photos for example and the you click on it and only one photo for the tries section appears. I would also suggest the ability to see who follows what board, so if you click the number of followers for the board, you could see who exactly follows the board. Thanks for reading my review, Pinterest still is a great app, and I still love using it. -Pinterest user
Have I reached the end of Pinterest?
by Tl333333:: on 2017/10/11 17:35
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!

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!
ALL Ads & Algorithm. NO (real) friends
by Kahleelee on 2018/10/04 01:27
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.
Worse with every update.
by Rae E on 2019/03/11 23:12
Ive been on Pinterest for my business for ages. Ive stuck around with every difficult and unimproved update they’ve stuck us with. But today i tried to help my brother, a highly successful Youtuber get a start in Pinterest and Im realizing how unintuitive and absolutely complicated this app has become, specifically for business users. For whatever reason it feels like Pinterest isn't supporting those running a business. Messaging people is a headache, figuring out leaders of group boards is confusing at best, cutting off pin sizes is a cheap move to try and level the playing field, finding people on the search is a challenge, and trying to figure out your post’s stats is a mind game. Also when you are told you get a repin, it doesn't take you to who pinned and to what board, but a massive list of other pins that have nothing to do with my pin. I guess its other pins in that board? But why would I ever want to see that? It’s overwhelming and confusing and not making the Pinterest experience any easier, which should be the goal of a social networking app. And having to check analytics on the computer is ridiculous! When Pinterest is a primarily phone-user community, why would you make it so difficult for business users to check their analytics? After an hour of trying to get him started we both just stopped. It should not be this hard. Pinterest should be more business-user friendly!
Still Useful, Not as User-Friendly.
by BJoanneArn97 on 2018/12/10 18:48
Pinterest has been and always will be a revolutionary app with millions of ideas for all ages. I’ve been using Pinterest now for at least five years. For a very long time, it was so easy and so understandable. However, I have slowly been disappointed with the app’s abilities as of late. It feels as though the developers are doing away with VERY useful features that I always found extremely helpful. For example, there used to be a Categories tab that you could find simple search lists under— things like art, animals, cooking, decorations, weddings, fashion, etc.. Since that feature has been taken away, it has become extremely difficult to navigate around the site to specific things you’re looking for. If I want to find ideas for a November wedding, I still can, but I ONLY get pins that are labeled as November Wedding Ideas. That’s a surprisingly limited arrangement. If I search for Meal Prep, I still get good content, but in a disappointingly small number. And don’t even get me started on the makeup searches now... There are millions of ways to search for something extremely specific. I would go to Google for that though. This new way of just-search-no-guides is very frustrating compared to when I could just go to the categories tab, click cooking, and find everything from there. I seriously hope this feature returns soon, or I may be forced to try new apps and move on.
No more stupid updates!!!!
by -ˋˏ Berri ˎˊ- on 2018/12/07 14:42
Everytime this app updates it becomes worse and worse, like I genuinely love Pinterest but I cant stand the updates it has, most of the time they are so annoying, other times it's okay but that was only when you had the selection option and you can arrange things but now you have gotten rid of it and now I can't even stand it anymore, I'm tired of seeing ads like every other pin than the ones I actually want to see, like I understand that it's a free app and all but why every other pin be an ad??? It wasn't like that before?? I see them so much that I just have to hide them and why is the hide option right next to the pin option too? That literally made things so confusing for the people who used it long time and would accidently hide a pin (personal experience) and sometimes there isn't an option to unhide either so your stuck with that pin gone forever. I will still use the app it's just much more unnecessary things here and there than what the consumer wants, or what I want. I still think it's a great app I just don't think these updates actually help Pinterest in anyway just making it worse than it actually is, Please start taking more consideration to the people who use Pinterest and figure out what is actually needed and what actually needs to be fixed before destroying the app. Thank you for reading
Used to love it
by happy65390 on 2017/11/14 02:19
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.
Suggestion to the app developers
by Guardrock on 2019/03/16 14:07
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.
Over all the stuff that I don’t follow but am forced to look at!
by crb022 on 2018/10/25 23:20
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.
High Praise, but why change the feed on ‘following’ to single pix?
by OrchidGirl60 on 2019/03/15 00:22
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.
Great App but Needs Some Work...
by Minecraft1207 on 2017/12/18 13:30
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.
Reordering pins and the reloading homepage frustration
by Playerofcandycrush on 2019/04/07 06:07
It was hard enough to reorder the pins in my board before when I would try to tap the pic and the screen would shrink but now I lit-er-al-ly have to COUNT my pins just to figure out which one I want to move and to where (and even doing that doesn’t work really I’m just guessing). The way the pins are set up now is nice but it’s hard to determine which one goes first goes and when I think I know to order and go to press the ⬆️⬇️ I end up pressing the wrong pic. (These are for posts of pages from books and stuff on paper). Please make it easier to reorder pins without all of them lining up next to each other to where they are so small on the screen I have to bring my face closer. Also, do you know how unbelievably annoying it is for the homepage to reload every time you exit the app for 5 minutes or even when your looking at a pic and click the homepage button??? Because a lot of the time I still have things I want to look at on the homepage but “I guess that’s never gonna happen” because the page reloaded and the posts I was interested in are gone and I can’t simply scroll down to find because the ENTIRE page reloaded with pictures I’m not remotely interested in.
Better
by Spectre3297 on 2018/09/13 10:05
So sad a frustrated with this app, which I used to love. I’m sure it’s still incredibly fun for new users. I’m betting most of the positive reviews are from when people just started using the app. Because once you’re on it for a while, it becomes an echo chamber. You click on an article, even if just to check it out, and your search suggestions are then completely clogged with what you already like and look at, or worse, what you only looked at once. I don’t need confirmation of what I already like. I want fresh ideas and concepts. I already disabled the options to track my views and use them to tweak my searches, and that option has come to make no difference at all. There is also the “see less of pins like this option” but that is also useless. You have to click it 12 times before your feed changes, but then you click on one article about that subject and you are reflooded with like pins. No matter my settings, all I see are things I’ve already liked and seen over and over, and also ads, which are obnoxious. Also spam. Also pins with broken links or links that lead to content that has nothing to do with the link. I can’t remember the last time an update did anything positive or helpful. I am sure that finding a balance between showing relevant content and new content is very hard, but this has degraded to being ridiculous and absolutely no fun at all.
Still great!
by JillianAbigaleM on 2018/12/19 04:17
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!
Too many ads! Deleting after 10+ years
by LizDWeaver on 2019/03/13 22:36
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.
following
by Noryie on 2018/06/04 02:08
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.
Love Pinterest, Not Updates
by Doggie121 on 2018/01/04 01:19
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.
Board sections finally came and are amazing!!! (Need a couple fixes though)
by ncmtngirl60 on 2017/11/10 01:14
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.
Unnecessarily censored
by Tip o' kneel on 2019/01/30 21:53
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.
Starting to dislike Pinterest overall
by lexzeppelin on 2018/07/13 02:47
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.
Not the same anymore
by Lisa Andresen on 2017/12/14 19:07
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?
Too Many Fake Posts!
by Dissatisfied, Try Harder. on 2017/10/17 15:55
I used to LOVE Pinterest’s Health section because I used to rely on it heavily for my fitness information. Now, over the past few months to a year I’ve noticed it slowly start to change. The number of ads increased the line my feed every other post, there are more fake posts that when you click on them take you to a website that has nothing to do with what was on the feed (when you submit them for a report and you wait and wait and wait then you go on there and they’re still there), and there’s always the same posts about the same things and a mass majority of them are the posts that you submitted a report for and would no longer like to see. I love every other section of Pinterest with the exception of Pinterest’s beauty section with there being ads for “ItWorks” (we all know it doesn’t actually work), or for “LipSense” (If I wanted to wear it when I first saw the ad I would’ve gone on their website and ordered it but it’s cheap quality and I hate it). Please improve the ad quality or completely ditch it because I know people who are just as sick of it as I am and in the long run these ads are going to be the downfall of Pinterest and why no one goes on there anymore, just like Facebook.
I love Pinterest but this is getting annoying
by tispeaches on 2019/02/24 07:31
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.
I love it but hope the developer reads this
by Apple Lover in Atlanta on 2018/07/10 08:49
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.
Don’t like new changes
by WarHorseFilly on 2018/01/23 02:12
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!
Pinterest Problems - Sep 2017
by User40450 on 2017/10/12 11:43
After pinterest updated on the 28th I’ve been having an irrevocably troublesome time quickly pinning things to my own boards. The feature that’s activated through pressing and holding a pin pulls up several smaller icons that allow for different functionality. I’ve become accustomed to pressing and holding to immediately put something onto a board because everything used to be familiar. Now after the update, the main feed has several new icons that appear alongside the previous ones when pressing and holding, and because of this, I have permanently hidden pins that I would’ve originally added to my boards because apparently, SOMEBODY thought it was a good idea to put the “HIDE PIN” icon in the exact same location as the previous “SAVE PIN”icon. Further more, there appears to be no clear and straightforward way to undo any of the hidden pins which is frustrating for me, someone who has gotten used to pinterest’s old way of doing things! Lol Pinterest is a fine app for inspiration but the interface definitely needs to be rethought again.
This Pinterest is doing better

Pinterest is a great place to look at images and find new ideas. However with every update you never know what is going to change for the better or worse. The last couple have been for the better, but before that it seemed like many of the updates took away something I enjoyed about the app unexpectedly. I like the change back to showing who saved each pin on my main dash. I also appreciate the new board sections. I do not mind the picked for me pins to some extent, but I prefer the pins from the boards I have followed. I didn't like it when they changed the way a pin would show how many times someone save a pin from a specific board to all the boards that it has ever been saved to, but I got used to it and it turned out to be better. However taking that away helps no one. I do not care how many times a pin has been saved if I can't see what boards it has been saved to. I would appreciate it if the updates told me what was changing. I don’t like being scared to update because I have no idea when there is going to be another change that will go against my enjoyment of the app.
Needs better tagging options
by ZeekyH on 2018/11/03 23:36
I have been enjoying this app a lot, and currently have 8000 pins in 63 different boards/sections. I have been exposed to all kinds of new craft techniques and aesthetic inspirations. Despite the antisocial nature of the app that other reviewers mention, I have found the algorithms to be very useful so long as a suitably descriptive query is used as a starting point. My only complaint is that your tagging functions are absurdly primitive. Because I cannot search for tags by board or section, I do not bother with them. This dampens the ability of my pinboard to be a tailored, searchable image database. But it also limits Pinterests’ overall web traffic, because fewer people bother to add descriptive words to their pins. Why bother? They can’t be queried in any meaningful way. Also, an entirely separate field in the description, solely for tags, would make things even better. Paired with a batch selection tool so I could add tags to multiple photos simultaneously, this would be an ideal tagging system. Seriously, how can you folks neglect something so vital? I hope to hear from someone, I am extending the benefit of the doubt that there is a human on the Pinterest team who reads these reviews regularly.
The era of grimy & deceit google sell outs!
by BPV1981 on 2018/04/28 18:15
Pinterest used to be amazing 1. Ability to like posts, gone why? 2. Privacy settings are a complete lie! Suggested for you is on off mode yea right , go back later after doing some pinning or searches and Bam there they go suggesting the things you recently looked at! 3. Major GRUNT! Why the heck can't they have things in their exclusive category ie: search any ethic group for the sole purpose of interest in said groups items, life styles & things etc and BAM THERES BECKY ::: hands up emoji::: why? , you can simply put copy cat Becky with her wanna be braids in her own category , hello she's not African anything so why is she there? If the search was black girls with braids! Not girls with braids! Why the tanning products & Caucasian things &/ or people within every BLACK PEOPLES STUFF SEARCH I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND ! If I looked in opposite category ya might see one person of color and that's a stretch to say the least. 4. Search suggested instead of -pop up stating to search exactly what you've typed, huh what? Is this nosy app retarded and blind ?!? Might have to tap out , FB, IG, Pinterest etc everyone's turning into ppl stalking trash! 5. DO NOT SEND LIKES POSTS OF THINGS YOU'RE INTERESTED IN ETC TO ANYONE VIA THE PHONE APP THEY'LL HOLD THAT CONTACT HOSTAGE IN DEFIANTLY! With No way to remove them, next time you click share button there they will be grrrrrr!
Gets worse with every update
by TuTPie on 2018/04/01 17:38
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.
Advertisement links are too sensitive
by Cole1883 on 2018/09/03 15:19
I like Pinterest for the most part, but when I am scrolling through and swiping the screen to do so, if my finger touches an add, it opens up instead of continuing to just scroll along. Very annoying! The adds are mixed in with all of the other pins, but they are clearly designed to open much more easily than the regular pins. Regular pins don’t open up accidentally just from scrolling along. This bothers me because of how everything we do on our devices is tracked and recorded so these companies can try to build a history of our interests to try to target us with adds. So When I am unintentionally opening adds that I don’t care about, I am being targeted with adds that don’t pertain to me. In other words, the digital history of what I click on is distorted, and therefore, whoever is collecting this data is not getting an accurate depiction of me. It’s a glitch in the matrix. They are taking the greedy approach and forcing adds onto us that we don’t want, and over time it will mess up their targeting system. This is probably why as a 35 year old male, I get adds trying to sell me products for menopause.
One of my favorite apps!
by p.heider on 2018/07/19 17:48
I love Pinterest, but I’ve noticed lately that whenever I try to save a pin, it doesn’t always recommend the right boards. Like what I mean is I will scroll down my home feed and save like 5+ pins to my Tom Holland board (lol) but then if I save like one Steven Universe pin I have to scroll all the way down to that board because other random boards are recommended for me and save it there. And then if I try to save another Tom Holland pin, it STILL won’t recognize that I’m saving a pin of him and I have to scroooooll all the way down again. I know I probably sound very high maintenance saying this, but around two months ago, I never had this problem. It just appeared recently. It’s still one of my favorite apps, but this has made it sort of annoying. I used to be able to save anything from Lapel Pins, to Steven Universe, to Drawings, to Funny, and they would be the top suggested boards. It’s not like most of my boards are new, which I was thinking may mess up whatever algorithm they’re using because the app needs to get adjusted to that new board. I just don’t know, but it’s not like he problem prevents me from using the app, so I’m good.
My Pinterest.
by Mikeadj on 2017/10/01 13:52
I love the Pinterest website. I love to cook, and I love fashion. I think it's great to not have to have to thumb through lots of books for great ideas. There's even videos showing how things work. The fashion in men's clothing is great! So much is affordable too! I'm always ready to review products. If there's one thing I really had to do to get things right was the sizing. I so much wanted my shirt I wanted, but it was a bit small, for example. I guess some of the clothes you have to figure the size for yourself. Clothes it seems are a different size if their made in Korea vs made in America. Some things I've seen I don't even have a clue what the numbers indicate, but I have seen both. It may have been my fault not finding another size chart. I learned to be really careful when I order. I do appreciate their making it simple to return items. Anyway, I'm getting better ordering online. Some things do seem to take a while, and if you get the wrong size, we'll ya just ain't happy. Of course no problem with food. Groceries right around the corner. I hope this was helpful. Peace!
Bad layout for Follow tab, and horrible changes made to Notification tab👎🏾
by Kaylabm21 on 2019/02/04 06:05
I don’t like how the layout looks for the follow tab, and I can’t see who specifically saved one of my re-pins to their board. It was easier to be able to save a pin straight on our Follow feed, but now it’s more trouble to have to go each persons board just to see what new things they’ve pinned. I also can’t see the individual’s actual board that they re-pinned my pins to. I feel like this creates a disconnect and limits interaction between the users/followers and so on. It seems like everytime I come on Pinterest it’s always a new insignificant layout or feature being made just to upset users on purpose🙄. It doesn’t help that there is no direct email or team that we can contact about our suggestions regarding the mobile app moving forward. There’s is a disconnect as well between users and the Pinterest team that could be helpful, as far as user traffic and requested features and updates. Trust me Pinterest team, you don’t have to do much to satisfy us. We liked the Pinterest app the best when it was at its simplest. It seems like every since ads have been introduced the app has gone downhill😕.
Pinterest
by StitchyJen on 2018/07/02 14:33
The app has become so horrible. It has become so weirdly reactive. I like fall pictures - pretty leaves and trees. But they represent about 2% of my interests - literally one small board of my 50 or so boards. At some point though, Pinterest started suggesting fall pictures to me, and I made the mistake of pinning some. Now, my feed is 70% trees and leaves, about 28% ads, and about 2% other things. Another example - a few months ago, I was looking at boards of a woman I knew from high school, and she posted a ton of “country girl” sayings, so I scrolled through them. These are of little interest to me, but it was a genre I hadn’t seen and so I looked at them. Didn’t pin one, but now I get emails from Pinterest based on my love of “country girl” pins. What? Last night was the last straw. I went on the app and there was a sweet old poem from my childhood, so I pinned it. (It was about fall of course - see a rant #1!) One pin!! I got on this morning and guess what?! Feed of sweet little poems. I am an early adopter of Pinterest but I find the app unbearable. The online version is better but only because there is slightly more variety and it seems to skew toward my overall interests. Please fix this Pinterest. You were my favorite go-to app a few years ago.
Pinterest....It only took you 47 years!!
by Chief Intecessor on 2017/09/20 19:15
After 47 years....... 47 long years ..... After countless attempts prior ......It was finally through this wonderfully created app, Pinterest that led me to meet my birth mom!!!.... I stumbled on a pin back in June 2015 on a lazy Saturday afternoon.... that said Adoptees receive copies of their original birth certificates. This pin began the most memorable journey of my life... I clicked on it and it opened a door that was literally sealed for 40 plus years.... I followed the process from the pin ... received the birth certificate.... began searching for my birth mom .... found her in July 2015 .... not even a full month later.....and met her face to face in November 2015.... unfortunately she passed away December 2016.... But look at the miracle of God I was able spend that time with her .... Pinterest has been a blessing in my life .... just in time..... and the funny thing is I wasn't doing a search for anything related to adoption... However, God saw fit for me to see that pin... it was the last one at the bottom of the scroll..... thanks Pinterest...keep doing what you're doing!
I have more problems now than before....
by Just one review for today. on 2018/09/20 01:27
So I was originally just going to email Pinterest about my problem because it is a very specific problem, but I can’t seem to find the correct email. I even went so far as to go into MESSAGES to find the email. I saw a “Email Pinterest” button in the contacts section of messaging and I clicked it and..... nothing. I click it again..... nothing. It would let me click the button so I just gave up. Anyways my original problem was with the new update. Everything was fine until this update so I know it’s just the update that caused it. I will go to comment something on a pin and everything will be fine, but when I reply, the “Add” button is like SUPER far down and UNDERNEATH the keyboard. I can’t click it unless I make some really long response that takes up like seven lines and it eventually comes up above the keyboard. And this is ONLY when I reply to a comment. I tried closing out of the app completely and going back in, but it’s been doing this all day and it is VERY annoying. Pls fix this ASAP.
Noooo! I liked the board moving editing!!
by Julian's mommie on 2018/05/23 17:01
Why are all the awesome features being removed? I was loving that I could edit and move my boards to organize it all! I wasn’t done yet! Now I can’t rearrange my boards making my profile all pretty. Looks like I would have to do a tedious job of creating and moving the pins separately. I love the sun board/section feature added. But it would be even more awesome of a sub board in a sub-board. That would make my Pinterest life the best in organization! It’s great now we have the introduction of the lightbulb to find more like a particular pin that now replaces the circle thing that was removed. What I found is needed is being able to see who follows what of my boards and profile. Some people only follow a board, so when I delete a board or moved it as a sub board, those people are now gone. Would be nice to have an option to message the people that follow a board that the board was moved and give them the option to refollow the board that was moved or changed or follow my entire profile. Now, that would be awesome! I’m now sadden I can’t move my boards around now. Booo.
Too many ads
by R in roc on 2019/01/06 04:16
I used to use Pinterest a lot. I loved seeing interesting boards and people I followed. Now it’s tons of ads and auto play ads. The quantity of ads ruin the look and feel of Pinterest. I scroll through Instagram all the time and the ads don’t bother me. Pinterest has failed to learn the art of making ads appealing. They just bombard you with gobs of ads with that annoying and condescending message about how those ads were paid for. We get how ads work. Having it spelled out every time is not needed. The auto play ads are awful. Just let me turn them off even if I on WiFi. They continue the ruination of Pinterest by ads and take to the next level. They other major complaint is that I’m constantly inundated with suggestions or content I don’t want at the expense of seeing content I do want. Their algorithms are so off for both advertising and content. I rarely use Pinterest anymore and usually get right off of it after less than a minute because the ads ruin the vibe and aesthetic. Only thing Pinterest cares about is advertising. It’s too bad they could care enough to make the advertising appealing and blended into the aesthetic that made Pinterest so great before. At the rate I don’t use it. I’ll probably delete it soon. Enjoy those ads.
Thankful
by DDDDDDDjjjjawwsh on 2019/04/01 16:55
Love it! So today I went on my Pinterest to look up pictures of braids and was amazed by something for the first time since I started using the platform. Now, while I am a long time user of Pinterest, for the longest time I’ve complained about not being able to search for the type of people that look like me. That if I were to type in “short curly hair styles” I’d get page after page of white girls. Nothing wrong with them, the pics were beautiful, but just not very representative of me and my hair. This is not to say that I couldn’t find black girls, it just wasn’t easy. I’d have to find one, then scroll to look at similar pics and so on. So back to today, when I typed in “braids” on Pinterest I got the option to choose a skin tone. I nearly cried. This one tiny, simple act of inclusion felt so overwhelming and powerful. All I have to say is, I am more than grateful and so excited to keep using the platform for everything from daydreaming about my future house to choosing my latest hairstyle. Just now with a bit more ease. Thank you.
Update is horrible...
by Jack and Jill of Albuquerque on 2018/06/06 12:55
I’ve been using Pinterest since before it was cool, and normally I don’t mind app changes and updates. But this time did me in. I really only want to see stuff from people I follow, and maybe a few pins from similar boards. However, the “following” tab doesn’t show everything my friends pin. And the home page is all, wait for it....., MCU spoilers. Yes, folks. I have gone the entire MCU without having a movie spoiled and along comes Pinterest and suddenly I’m savvy to every Infinity War death. But here’s the real problem. I have spent every day of the past week hiding every Marvel pin I come across, (like, 30 a day) and yet every time I open the app theres still more at the top of my feed. And it’s not just marvel. I’ve been doing a lot of hiding to try and get my feed back to something i enjoy. But it’s the same with other content as well. Instead of giving me less, the app just keeps sending me more of the same. So my Pinterest experience has been reduced to scrolling through the main feed, trying to find my friends’ pins while trying not to read anything else. Cmon, Pinterest. Let’s get back to a tailored Pinterest experience and not what the algorithms want to show people.
You guys ruined it
by Crystal_opf on 2019/01/19 05:01
In scanning through the recent comments, it seems I’m in the majority. I won’t goin to details because everyone here is saying the same thing, too many ads, content that’s chosen for me based on algorithms that flood my feed with one topic- usually the last thing I searched for, and seriously- what is the point of following other people here? I barely see friends pins show up in my feed. Yes I’m interested in seeing what they pin- that’s why I follow them. All of this has been said in much greater detail here, but the thing that drove me to write this review is the latest update with the stupid freaking dots all over an image I’m trying to look at, so that I don’t miss out on the opportunity to buy it all- problem is, I can’t see it at all because there are white dots in the way! And then when I try to scroll down to see more pins like the one in viewing, which used to be a nice feature, I’m bombarded with more ads! The only reason you’re getting to stars is because I wanted to thank you - all the updates have so ruined the app, that I’m spending way less time in my phone now. I’m actually picking up real magazines again- which has been really nice. So thank you, two stars for you.
Finally, some improvements!
by Dizzyrdhd on 2018/10/19 00:18
Many of these comments are for the browser and not the app, and most of the issues raised have been fixed... For example, there IS a way to see pins from just those you follow - there is a feed devoted to that now. It’s wonderful! And, sponsored pins are fewer in the home feed, which does a good job of tracking my interests... Saving a pin is much easier than it used to be - one click instead of three (so you you can pin three times as much before you get carpel tunnel symptoms. Ha!) And, the ‘like’ feature is back for group boards. (As a group board owner, that’s the way I used it most often, anyway.) The BEST most WONDERFUL thing of all is that you can organize your pins by dragging them around a page (instead of repinning them in a new order). This makes Pinterest SO much more fun! Also, the option to have sections in each board is a dream come true... I will give a 5-star rating to Pinterest when the glitches in the app and on the computer stop occurring so often. I will say, the support team is VERY responsive. So, bravo!! I rate Pinterest 4 1/2 stars.
I also miss the old Pinterest
by Maybe spoilers? on 2018/09/30 23:33
I’m sorry but I came to the App Store, just now from Pinterest, to say that with every update Pinterest seems to be getting worse. Enough already. I’ve been here from the beginning and I flat out refuse to update on my iPad because I realized it just isn’t getting better. I don’t understand why we can’t search within categories like “entertainment,” “pets,” “crafts,” etc anymore... I don’t want a home feed, and then a separate place for people I’m following, that makes no sense. It used to be much more user friendly. Also the “algorithms” or whatever they call it are out of control. I’ll click on one pin for say, cupcakes while in search. And next thing I know I have a million cupcake recipes throwing themselves at me, one after another in my feed. Like, chill out Pinterest. One thing I miss is the “tried it” feature. When they implemented that a few updates ago it was great. Somehow they messed that up too with a recent update. Now you can’t simply comment on a recipe without adding a picture or something. My complaint is the new Pinterest is not user friendly. Which is a shame because I love Pinterest it’s my favorite app. There’s really nothing like it.
Don’t have an opinion just Share, Share, and watch our Ads!
by Juggling Multiple Jobs on 2017/10/27 12:41
What you dislike should be every bit as important as what you Like And not everything you Like is what you want to spread around and share! Pinterest has removed key features in its app over the last year that have so severely reduced its personalized uniqueness and usefulness I may as well be on Imgur. The ability to dislike something (to tailor it out of your feed) for a reason other than a Report Issue (which will only affect that pin, not your preferences) has virtually disappeared, telling the app that you are sick of your feed being overrun by useless/uninteresting/ubiquitous paid advertisements is useless (1:6 pins still an add after a month of hiding every paid add as “I just don’t like ads”), you can no longer “Like” and save a pin that you don’t want to further spread to others resulting in suggested new pins being reduced to the same 100-or-so pins from different feeds (amazingly Pinterest, some of us actually want to _test_ a recipe/troubleshooting tactic/product Before we give a seal of approval and share it with the world!) But, money and sponsorships are successfully destroying what was once a truly inspired community sharing app.
Frustrated
by poopy pants magruff on 2018/11/23 21:35
Well I love Pinterest, but lately a lot of content has redirects that take one to dead ends or to un related content when trying to follow feeds. But my one real issue is that when trying to enlarge a picture or page, the page locks up and I have to completely close out the app and then restart the app and then try and re-find the lost pin. OR, if I am afraid of a freeze up I have to save it so I can get back to the particular pin I am interested in. Which forces one to save a lot of junk that I don’t want to save, just to look at. This has been a problem for at least 5 or 6 iterations of updates. I know I am not the only person that faces this issue. Then trying to find a way to report this issue through there web sight is almost impossible lol. I wish they had an easy to find ( report issues with the app ) feed on there web sight. I hope some one from the app developers department see’s this and contacts me. So they can either fix the issue or identify if the problem is me and not the app and that I am ether not operating the app correctly or if the resolution is in front of me and just don’t see it.
What I want next...
by Medieval Trovist on 2018/03/14 19:08
An app so ridiculously great...it did not force my thumb over a topic to create as a board when I already have rich and popular boards I have made myself. I also want an app that let us really, really get rid of some pins when we say go away. Also let us have some better filters for safety. And...Space for artists and photographers to create and add quickly? Just brainstorming now. The app is fast and straight forward. I do need something though. I need to be able to flip back more easily to a certain selection of the suggestions that first pop up, as they erase something I spotted but cannot find again because the suggestions were refreshed. Being able to have pathing that tracks how you got to pins, how you have been exploring might be a good tool to find your spot or spots after backing out of a certain selection of similar pins and the similar pins before that. I can get lost in this are with similar pins, but I want to be able to go back in down a path of similar pins as easily as I can back out simply to the first pin I saw.
Browsing blind
by Kostina on 2017/09/18 23:23
I really have not liked the changes Pinterest has made to their platform over the last 3 to 4 iterations. I don't like not being able to like other people's pins--it completely removed any nod toward being a "social" media platform when it did this. When I liked something, it was usually because I appreciated what my friend had pinned and I wanted them o know I saw it and liked it--for them, not for me. If I like it for me I would have pinned it also. I despise the constant bombardment of ads in the feed. No matter how many times I change my settings, send feedback on spammy ads, or completely block ad promoter, the ads still keep flooding in. With so many ads, it compounds one of the more recent issues arising from changes--you can't see who has pinned something without first clicking on it, so now you're sucked even deeper into the ad nonsense. If I didn't have so much stuff pinned already, I would not sign up for it. As it is, I mainly use Pinterest for recipes and ideas. I am in the process of moving my recipes out to a different platform so I won't have to interface with Pinterest. Just a bunch of bad moves on their part. One. Right. After. Another.

Great app!
by aj shorman on 2019/04/25 09:09
I got Pinterest a couple days ago and I am loving it so far! The quality is good, the app never crashes, and it’s fast! 11/10 would recommend.
And Now I’m Bored
by Alyellalee on 2019/04/25 07:23
Absolutely HATE not being able to scroll through specific categories anymore. Super redundant content. SO MANY RANDOM ADDS and I definitely miss the “like” button. I don’t want to pin everything I see and like.
Good app but...
by HumanBeing051467839 on 2019/04/25 02:16
Its a good app but the only problem is I’ve been hacked now twice. It kicked me out and made me sign in and it said I couldn’t access it. As I said it’s the SECOND time. I have not broken any rules or guidelines on the app ever. They need to fix this. I don’t want to keep creating accounts.
I don’t understand

Having to update the app every week is getting really old and the app isn’t getting better with all the updates
New feature (dark theme) when??? :$
by imArmando on 2019/04/24 16:55
Bug fixes & performance updates are great and all, but it gets boring after sometime, so can we please get a feature from time to time that makes updating worthwhile, a dark mode will make me happy. It’s already there on mobile web version, would be nice if you rushed that a bit

When you do research to verify facts and find Pinterest has a lower accuracy than Wikipedia. It gets very fusrtating

I’m not a Pinterest mom
by Мs. Lei™ on 2019/04/24 04:46
And this app URKS ME. I don’t need my account LINKED to google. Stop tracking everything I do. I go on there like 4 times a month. MAYBE!! I can tell this app wasn’t made with Black or Brown people in mind. Or maybe I’m not searching the right things. Either way..this app is not what the hype house wives are making it out to be and since it got mixed up with Google. Find something else to do.

This app was EVERYTHING at one point, well the HELL happened!?!?!? I mean a top shelf idea! The Promos took over, the like button went away & I see nothing of the People I follow.... The App is a Shadow of its former self, just NOT the same, So sad to see you go Pinterest, it was fun while it lasted!

All of the things that I have pinned disappeared. What the heck..
So annoying
by WHAT DO I DO SOMEONE HELP on 2019/04/23 06:30
Why do you guys put so many “wallpapers” but there’s no way to save the image or even put it at full screen to screenshot. You just click it THINKING you’re gonna get the full image and it goes to a dumb website where you can’t even save it or screenshot it there. Like I never written a review before but this hits my nerve every time

Decent app but it freezes up all of the time. Rather annoying when your trying to look for things (patterns, recipes etc). If not for that I’d give 5 stars.

by natalie.m200 on 2019/04/22 21:25
i would give 0 stars if i could. my account was recently suspended when i violate none of the rules. i guess if you pin too many pins they call it “spamming” and they suspend your account. i’ve tried appealing multiple times and none work. i had this pinterest account for a while and had lots of pins, now they’re all gone 😤😤

Why are these screens always getting stuck. They never used too now I don’t enjoy the app as much as I used to
Too many ads
by lightstreaming on 2019/04/22 05:15
The ads have gotten out of control. Too often, I’m finding myself searching for content within the pin (similar to click-bait articles) or trying to find a way to close the pop-up ads without success. I am getting beyond frustrated with an app that so have loved for years. Come on, Pinterest, enough is enough.
Why I live his app so much
by hiiiiiiiiii doenload app now on 2019/04/22 02:45
I absolutely love Pinterest I like it so much because it has some much great ideas and can have funny jokes and important stuff.

Ugh
by shanteeezyy on 2019/04/22 02:26

If you’re going to allow advertisers to redirect us to their page, at least demand that they take us to the page for which we clicked. Sending me to the home page is bullsh*t. Fix it!!!! It’s already irritating enough! Wayfair! Living Spaces! et al!!!!

by spiritusbastard on 2019/04/21 20:05
I like using this app and have for a long time but the constant and aggressive refreshing throws me off all the time. It’s frustrating and makes me give up exploring for images very frequently.

In your zeal to gather more information on your users, today I was not allowed to add something to my board (that I had been using for 3 or so years) unless I added more information. Well you got what you wanted but in the process, you wiped out all that I had saved. I am finished with Pinterest. Good bye! You seemed to function well until you went for your IPO. I guess all that added info was worth it to you. You are no longer worth it for me.

Good tool - needs tweaking
by Thee Fishsticks on 2019/04/21 16:48
Before launching my business, I used it as a source of inspiration, and still do. I like the art and design resources. It really is a place of inspiration and less irritating than Instagram. I switched to the business account, and it offers analytics to see how much traffic is coming through Pinterest. I like this but sometimes find the numbers dubious. They post the average number of viewers in my profile, which seem random, and frankly, unbelievably high at times, and I can’t figure out where these numbers come from since they swing dramatically up and down and arent based on my actual followers. Having said that, I can post an image that links to my product for free and the analytics from my store tells me roughly how much traffic came through Pinterest. As I wrote earlier, Pinterest also generates this info but I don’t always trust its accuracy. For instance, I’ve seen a pin get 100 views and 10 clicks, and then the next day it’s analytics will say it got 0 views and one click. How is it possible that someone can click on the image to take them to the link without also viewing it? What is going on? Why does data sometimes change dramatically overnight either up or down? I’m guessing they are developing things and since this is free I’m not complaining, only pointing out the unreliability of the information. This has held me back from paying for an ad. If I can see that these numbers made sense or seemed reliable I might start running ads through Pinterest. I would also like to see a return of a date and time stamp on an image post. When businesses or blogs share an image of a product it’s helpful for people to see the date and know the timeliness of it so they aren’t disappointed when they click through to the link only to realize that it is 5 years old and gone.

Love this app! Not the new feature
by MrsCastanon on 2019/04/21 14:23
Have been using this app for years and I love it! I do however hate the new feature when searching. Anytime I press on a pin, after going back to my search it starts to only show the same exact thing I looked at instead of the search. If I wanted to do that, I would just go and look under that specific pin and look under the “more like this”. Now I have to search the same thing over again so I can view the different options. Easy to do but tedious and inconvenient. Because it’s about viewing different options. Not the same one I just saw over and over again. Example: searching ways to use pesto. Click on a pin about pesto pizza. Go back to my ways to use pesto search, now only pesto pizza pops up instead of the different ways to use it.
Dear Pinterest
by feyre2018 on 2019/04/21 14:16

I love this app! I just have some things I would like to mention and ask. First, will ads from company’s be on Pinterest for promotion? Also I would like to access my pins offline. Whenever I have no network connection I can not access my own pins. But everything else on the app is HQ and easy to use! Thanks!

Good But Pictures Are Poor Quality
by R-meh dues on 2019/04/21 06:07
Everything about Pinterest is addictive and it’s the best app for finding fresh ideas about pretty much anything. What I really don’t like though is that images I see or download are in very low quality and I have to Google them for a decent resolution. The added step is really annoying.

Incomprehensible help system
by Alabaster Penguin on 2019/04/20 20:32
The menus look great and they’re fun to navigate between each generic pastel colored bubble, but none offer anything other than almost boilerplate explanation with little guidance other than go to settings. If you need to do more than the three things listed in the settings, you’ll be referred to a browser version of the site... which gives you the same three options in the settings. And if you wish to contact a human, good luck.

i’d give it 0 stars if i could. multiple times, my account got suspended. i violate none of the rules, and i still end up getting suspended. i’ve been a pinterest user for YEARS, and now i’m not using the app anymore. it’s not worth it at all. if you like pinning a lot, this app isn’t for you, because they’re probably going to suspend you!!
Great App, but has some bugs and needs some improvements
by Graphic-S on 2019/04/09 15:46
Pinterest is a Great app, and I’ve been using it for about 3 years now. The developers are really great at adding and fixing features. But, some things are just ignored. If your looking at a pin or website for that pin, and you close the app for awhile, when your open the app again, the pin will glitch there for a few moments, then it will take you to your feed. This glitch will happen every time I open the app for the next few hours. This gets annoying and sometimes it just freezes like this. Another glitch is when I look at pins on my home feed, after a wile the feed will lag and just freeze. And a few minutes later the app will crash. Also, sometimes when I open the app the home feed glitches, making all the pins look like a file, single pin behind another pin. I usually have to turn my (newer) device off and then on to get rid of this glitch. Sometimes for the pins it will say that people posted a photo or a comment for it (example- (2 photos) and when you click on it no photos appear or no comments appear. Sometimes it says 2 photos for example and the you click on it and only one photo for the tries section appears. I would also suggest the ability to see who follows what board, so if you click the number of followers for the board, you could see who exactly follows the board. Thanks for reading my review, Pinterest still is a great app, and I still love using it. -Pinterest user
Have I reached the end of Pinterest?
by Tl333333:: on 2017/10/11 17:35
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!
Best thing ever
by Rosycheeks13 on 2017/12/28 23:09
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!
ALL Ads & Algorithm. NO (real) friends
by Kahleelee on 2018/10/04 01:27
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.
Worse with every update.
by Rae E on 2019/03/11 23:12
Ive been on Pinterest for my business for ages. Ive stuck around with every difficult and unimproved update they’ve stuck us with. But today i tried to help my brother, a highly successful Youtuber get a start in Pinterest and Im realizing how unintuitive and absolutely complicated this app has become, specifically for business users. For whatever reason it feels like Pinterest isn't supporting those running a business. Messaging people is a headache, figuring out leaders of group boards is confusing at best, cutting off pin sizes is a cheap move to try and level the playing field, finding people on the search is a challenge, and trying to figure out your post’s stats is a mind game. Also when you are told you get a repin, it doesn't take you to who pinned and to what board, but a massive list of other pins that have nothing to do with my pin. I guess its other pins in that board? But why would I ever want to see that? It’s overwhelming and confusing and not making the Pinterest experience any easier, which should be the goal of a social networking app. And having to check analytics on the computer is ridiculous! When Pinterest is a primarily phone-user community, why would you make it so difficult for business users to check their analytics? After an hour of trying to get him started we both just stopped. It should not be this hard. Pinterest should be more business-user friendly!
Still Useful, Not as User-Friendly.
by BJoanneArn97 on 2018/12/10 18:48
Pinterest has been and always will be a revolutionary app with millions of ideas for all ages. I’ve been using Pinterest now for at least five years. For a very long time, it was so easy and so understandable. However, I have slowly been disappointed with the app’s abilities as of late. It feels as though the developers are doing away with VERY useful features that I always found extremely helpful. For example, there used to be a Categories tab that you could find simple search lists under— things like art, animals, cooking, decorations, weddings, fashion, etc.. Since that feature has been taken away, it has become extremely difficult to navigate around the site to specific things you’re looking for. If I want to find ideas for a November wedding, I still can, but I ONLY get pins that are labeled as November Wedding Ideas. That’s a surprisingly limited arrangement. If I search for Meal Prep, I still get good content, but in a disappointingly small number. And don’t even get me started on the makeup searches now... There are millions of ways to search for something extremely specific. I would go to Google for that though. This new way of just-search-no-guides is very frustrating compared to when I could just go to the categories tab, click cooking, and find everything from there. I seriously hope this feature returns soon, or I may be forced to try new apps and move on.
No more stupid updates!!!!
by -ˋˏ Berri ˎˊ- on 2018/12/07 14:42
Everytime this app updates it becomes worse and worse, like I genuinely love Pinterest but I cant stand the updates it has, most of the time they are so annoying, other times it's okay but that was only when you had the selection option and you can arrange things but now you have gotten rid of it and now I can't even stand it anymore, I'm tired of seeing ads like every other pin than the ones I actually want to see, like I understand that it's a free app and all but why every other pin be an ad??? It wasn't like that before?? I see them so much that I just have to hide them and why is the hide option right next to the pin option too? That literally made things so confusing for the people who used it long time and would accidently hide a pin (personal experience) and sometimes there isn't an option to unhide either so your stuck with that pin gone forever. I will still use the app it's just much more unnecessary things here and there than what the consumer wants, or what I want. I still think it's a great app I just don't think these updates actually help Pinterest in anyway just making it worse than it actually is, Please start taking more consideration to the people who use Pinterest and figure out what is actually needed and what actually needs to be fixed before destroying the app. Thank you for reading
Used to love it
by happy65390 on 2017/11/14 02:19
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.
Suggestion to the app developers
by Guardrock on 2019/03/16 14:07
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.
Over all the stuff that I don’t follow but am forced to look at!
by crb022 on 2018/10/25 23:20
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.
High Praise, but why change the feed on ‘following’ to single pix?
by OrchidGirl60 on 2019/03/15 00:22
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.
Great App but Needs Some Work...
by Minecraft1207 on 2017/12/18 13:30
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.
Reordering pins and the reloading homepage frustration
by Playerofcandycrush on 2019/04/07 06:07
It was hard enough to reorder the pins in my board before when I would try to tap the pic and the screen would shrink but now I lit-er-al-ly have to COUNT my pins just to figure out which one I want to move and to where (and even doing that doesn’t work really I’m just guessing). The way the pins are set up now is nice but it’s hard to determine which one goes first goes and when I think I know to order and go to press the ⬆️⬇️ I end up pressing the wrong pic. (These are for posts of pages from books and stuff on paper). Please make it easier to reorder pins without all of them lining up next to each other to where they are so small on the screen I have to bring my face closer. Also, do you know how unbelievably annoying it is for the homepage to reload every time you exit the app for 5 minutes or even when your looking at a pic and click the homepage button??? Because a lot of the time I still have things I want to look at on the homepage but “I guess that’s never gonna happen” because the page reloaded and the posts I was interested in are gone and I can’t simply scroll down to find because the ENTIRE page reloaded with pictures I’m not remotely interested in.
Better
by Spectre3297 on 2018/09/13 10:05
So sad a frustrated with this app, which I used to love. I’m sure it’s still incredibly fun for new users. I’m betting most of the positive reviews are from when people just started using the app. Because once you’re on it for a while, it becomes an echo chamber. You click on an article, even if just to check it out, and your search suggestions are then completely clogged with what you already like and look at, or worse, what you only looked at once. I don’t need confirmation of what I already like. I want fresh ideas and concepts. I already disabled the options to track my views and use them to tweak my searches, and that option has come to make no difference at all. There is also the “see less of pins like this option” but that is also useless. You have to click it 12 times before your feed changes, but then you click on one article about that subject and you are reflooded with like pins. No matter my settings, all I see are things I’ve already liked and seen over and over, and also ads, which are obnoxious. Also spam. Also pins with broken links or links that lead to content that has nothing to do with the link. I can’t remember the last time an update did anything positive or helpful. I am sure that finding a balance between showing relevant content and new content is very hard, but this has degraded to being ridiculous and absolutely no fun at all.
Still great!
by JillianAbigaleM on 2018/12/19 04:17
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!
Too many ads! Deleting after 10+ years
by LizDWeaver on 2019/03/13 22:36
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.
following
by Noryie on 2018/06/04 02:08
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.
Love Pinterest, Not Updates
by Doggie121 on 2018/01/04 01:19
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.
Board sections finally came and are amazing!!! (Need a couple fixes though)
by ncmtngirl60 on 2017/11/10 01:14
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.
Unnecessarily censored
by Tip o' kneel on 2019/01/30 21:53
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.
Starting to dislike Pinterest overall
by lexzeppelin on 2018/07/13 02:47
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.
Not the same anymore
by Lisa Andresen on 2017/12/14 19:07
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?
Too Many Fake Posts!
by Dissatisfied, Try Harder. on 2017/10/17 15:55
I used to LOVE Pinterest’s Health section because I used to rely on it heavily for my fitness information. Now, over the past few months to a year I’ve noticed it slowly start to change. The number of ads increased the line my feed every other post, there are more fake posts that when you click on them take you to a website that has nothing to do with what was on the feed (when you submit them for a report and you wait and wait and wait then you go on there and they’re still there), and there’s always the same posts about the same things and a mass majority of them are the posts that you submitted a report for and would no longer like to see. I love every other section of Pinterest with the exception of Pinterest’s beauty section with there being ads for “ItWorks” (we all know it doesn’t actually work), or for “LipSense” (If I wanted to wear it when I first saw the ad I would’ve gone on their website and ordered it but it’s cheap quality and I hate it). Please improve the ad quality or completely ditch it because I know people who are just as sick of it as I am and in the long run these ads are going to be the downfall of Pinterest and why no one goes on there anymore, just like Facebook.
I love Pinterest but this is getting annoying
by tispeaches on 2019/02/24 07:31
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.
I love it but hope the developer reads this
by Apple Lover in Atlanta on 2018/07/10 08:49
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.
Don’t like new changes
by WarHorseFilly on 2018/01/23 02:12
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!
Pinterest Problems - Sep 2017
by User40450 on 2017/10/12 11:43
After pinterest updated on the 28th I’ve been having an irrevocably troublesome time quickly pinning things to my own boards. The feature that’s activated through pressing and holding a pin pulls up several smaller icons that allow for different functionality. I’ve become accustomed to pressing and holding to immediately put something onto a board because everything used to be familiar. Now after the update, the main feed has several new icons that appear alongside the previous ones when pressing and holding, and because of this, I have permanently hidden pins that I would’ve originally added to my boards because apparently, SOMEBODY thought it was a good idea to put the “HIDE PIN” icon in the exact same location as the previous “SAVE PIN”icon. Further more, there appears to be no clear and straightforward way to undo any of the hidden pins which is frustrating for me, someone who has gotten used to pinterest’s old way of doing things! Lol Pinterest is a fine app for inspiration but the interface definitely needs to be rethought again.
This Pinterest is doing better
by Nick_awesome13 on 2018/01/23 20:13
Pinterest is a great place to look at images and find new ideas. However with every update you never know what is going to change for the better or worse. The last couple have been for the better, but before that it seemed like many of the updates took away something I enjoyed about the app unexpectedly. I like the change back to showing who saved each pin on my main dash. I also appreciate the new board sections. I do not mind the picked for me pins to some extent, but I prefer the pins from the boards I have followed. I didn't like it when they changed the way a pin would show how many times someone save a pin from a specific board to all the boards that it has ever been saved to, but I got used to it and it turned out to be better. However taking that away helps no one. I do not care how many times a pin has been saved if I can't see what boards it has been saved to. I would appreciate it if the updates told me what was changing. I don’t like being scared to update because I have no idea when there is going to be another change that will go against my enjoyment of the app.
Needs better tagging options
by ZeekyH on 2018/11/03 23:36
I have been enjoying this app a lot, and currently have 8000 pins in 63 different boards/sections. I have been exposed to all kinds of new craft techniques and aesthetic inspirations. Despite the antisocial nature of the app that other reviewers mention, I have found the algorithms to be very useful so long as a suitably descriptive query is used as a starting point. My only complaint is that your tagging functions are absurdly primitive. Because I cannot search for tags by board or section, I do not bother with them. This dampens the ability of my pinboard to be a tailored, searchable image database. But it also limits Pinterests’ overall web traffic, because fewer people bother to add descriptive words to their pins. Why bother? They can’t be queried in any meaningful way. Also, an entirely separate field in the description, solely for tags, would make things even better. Paired with a batch selection tool so I could add tags to multiple photos simultaneously, this would be an ideal tagging system. Seriously, how can you folks neglect something so vital? I hope to hear from someone, I am extending the benefit of the doubt that there is a human on the Pinterest team who reads these reviews regularly.
The era of grimy & deceit google sell outs!
by BPV1981 on 2018/04/28 18:15
Pinterest used to be amazing 1. Ability to like posts, gone why? 2. Privacy settings are a complete lie! Suggested for you is on off mode yea right , go back later after doing some pinning or searches and Bam there they go suggesting the things you recently looked at! 3. Major GRUNT! Why the heck can't they have things in their exclusive category ie: search any ethic group for the sole purpose of interest in said groups items, life styles & things etc and BAM THERES BECKY ::: hands up emoji::: why? , you can simply put copy cat Becky with her wanna be braids in her own category , hello she's not African anything so why is she there? If the search was black girls with braids! Not girls with braids! Why the tanning products & Caucasian things &/ or people within every BLACK PEOPLES STUFF SEARCH I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND ! If I looked in opposite category ya might see one person of color and that's a stretch to say the least. 4. Search suggested instead of -pop up stating to search exactly what you've typed, huh what? Is this nosy app retarded and blind ?!? Might have to tap out , FB, IG, Pinterest etc everyone's turning into ppl stalking trash! 5. DO NOT SEND LIKES POSTS OF THINGS YOU'RE INTERESTED IN ETC TO ANYONE VIA THE PHONE APP THEY'LL HOLD THAT CONTACT HOSTAGE IN DEFIANTLY! With No way to remove them, next time you click share button there they will be grrrrrr!
Gets worse with every update
by TuTPie on 2018/04/01 17:38
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.
Advertisement links are too sensitive
by Cole1883 on 2018/09/03 15:19
I like Pinterest for the most part, but when I am scrolling through and swiping the screen to do so, if my finger touches an add, it opens up instead of continuing to just scroll along. Very annoying! The adds are mixed in with all of the other pins, but they are clearly designed to open much more easily than the regular pins. Regular pins don’t open up accidentally just from scrolling along. This bothers me because of how everything we do on our devices is tracked and recorded so these companies can try to build a history of our interests to try to target us with adds. So When I am unintentionally opening adds that I don’t care about, I am being targeted with adds that don’t pertain to me. In other words, the digital history of what I click on is distorted, and therefore, whoever is collecting this data is not getting an accurate depiction of me. It’s a glitch in the matrix. They are taking the greedy approach and forcing adds onto us that we don’t want, and over time it will mess up their targeting system. This is probably why as a 35 year old male, I get adds trying to sell me products for menopause.
One of my favorite apps!
by p.heider on 2018/07/19 17:48
I love Pinterest, but I’ve noticed lately that whenever I try to save a pin, it doesn’t always recommend the right boards. Like what I mean is I will scroll down my home feed and save like 5+ pins to my Tom Holland board (lol) but then if I save like one Steven Universe pin I have to scroll all the way down to that board because other random boards are recommended for me and save it there. And then if I try to save another Tom Holland pin, it STILL won’t recognize that I’m saving a pin of him and I have to scroooooll all the way down again. I know I probably sound very high maintenance saying this, but around two months ago, I never had this problem. It just appeared recently. It’s still one of my favorite apps, but this has made it sort of annoying. I used to be able to save anything from Lapel Pins, to Steven Universe, to Drawings, to Funny, and they would be the top suggested boards. It’s not like most of my boards are new, which I was thinking may mess up whatever algorithm they’re using because the app needs to get adjusted to that new board. I just don’t know, but it’s not like he problem prevents me from using the app, so I’m good.
My Pinterest.
by Mikeadj on 2017/10/01 13:52
I love the Pinterest website. I love to cook, and I love fashion. I think it's great to not have to have to thumb through lots of books for great ideas. There's even videos showing how things work. The fashion in men's clothing is great! So much is affordable too! I'm always ready to review products. If there's one thing I really had to do to get things right was the sizing. I so much wanted my shirt I wanted, but it was a bit small, for example. I guess some of the clothes you have to figure the size for yourself. Clothes it seems are a different size if their made in Korea vs made in America. Some things I've seen I don't even have a clue what the numbers indicate, but I have seen both. It may have been my fault not finding another size chart. I learned to be really careful when I order. I do appreciate their making it simple to return items. Anyway, I'm getting better ordering online. Some things do seem to take a while, and if you get the wrong size, we'll ya just ain't happy. Of course no problem with food. Groceries right around the corner. I hope this was helpful. Peace!
Bad layout for Follow tab, and horrible changes made to Notification tab👎🏾
by Kaylabm21 on 2019/02/04 06:05
I don’t like how the layout looks for the follow tab, and I can’t see who specifically saved one of my re-pins to their board. It was easier to be able to save a pin straight on our Follow feed, but now it’s more trouble to have to go each persons board just to see what new things they’ve pinned. I also can’t see the individual’s actual board that they re-pinned my pins to. I feel like this creates a disconnect and limits interaction between the users/followers and so on. It seems like everytime I come on Pinterest it’s always a new insignificant layout or feature being made just to upset users on purpose🙄. It doesn’t help that there is no direct email or team that we can contact about our suggestions regarding the mobile app moving forward. There’s is a disconnect as well between users and the Pinterest team that could be helpful, as far as user traffic and requested features and updates. Trust me Pinterest team, you don’t have to do much to satisfy us. We liked the Pinterest app the best when it was at its simplest. It seems like every since ads have been introduced the app has gone downhill😕.
Pinterest
by StitchyJen on 2018/07/02 14:33
The app has become so horrible. It has become so weirdly reactive. I like fall pictures - pretty leaves and trees. But they represent about 2% of my interests - literally one small board of my 50 or so boards. At some point though, Pinterest started suggesting fall pictures to me, and I made the mistake of pinning some. Now, my feed is 70% trees and leaves, about 28% ads, and about 2% other things. Another example - a few months ago, I was looking at boards of a woman I knew from high school, and she posted a ton of “country girl” sayings, so I scrolled through them. These are of little interest to me, but it was a genre I hadn’t seen and so I looked at them. Didn’t pin one, but now I get emails from Pinterest based on my love of “country girl” pins. What? Last night was the last straw. I went on the app and there was a sweet old poem from my childhood, so I pinned it. (It was about fall of course - see a rant #1!) One pin!! I got on this morning and guess what?! Feed of sweet little poems. I am an early adopter of Pinterest but I find the app unbearable. The online version is better but only because there is slightly more variety and it seems to skew toward my overall interests. Please fix this Pinterest. You were my favorite go-to app a few years ago.
Pinterest....It only took you 47 years!!
by Chief Intecessor on 2017/09/20 19:15
After 47 years....... 47 long years ..... After countless attempts prior ......It was finally through this wonderfully created app, Pinterest that led me to meet my birth mom!!!.... I stumbled on a pin back in June 2015 on a lazy Saturday afternoon.... that said Adoptees receive copies of their original birth certificates. This pin began the most memorable journey of my life... I clicked on it and it opened a door that was literally sealed for 40 plus years.... I followed the process from the pin ... received the birth certificate.... began searching for my birth mom .... found her in July 2015 .... not even a full month later.....and met her face to face in November 2015.... unfortunately she passed away December 2016.... But look at the miracle of God I was able spend that time with her .... Pinterest has been a blessing in my life .... just in time..... and the funny thing is I wasn't doing a search for anything related to adoption... However, God saw fit for me to see that pin... it was the last one at the bottom of the scroll..... thanks Pinterest...keep doing what you're doing!
I have more problems now than before....
by Just one review for today. on 2018/09/20 01:27
So I was originally just going to email Pinterest about my problem because it is a very specific problem, but I can’t seem to find the correct email. I even went so far as to go into MESSAGES to find the email. I saw a “Email Pinterest” button in the contacts section of messaging and I clicked it and..... nothing. I click it again..... nothing. It would let me click the button so I just gave up. Anyways my original problem was with the new update. Everything was fine until this update so I know it’s just the update that caused it. I will go to comment something on a pin and everything will be fine, but when I reply, the “Add” button is like SUPER far down and UNDERNEATH the keyboard. I can’t click it unless I make some really long response that takes up like seven lines and it eventually comes up above the keyboard. And this is ONLY when I reply to a comment. I tried closing out of the app completely and going back in, but it’s been doing this all day and it is VERY annoying. Pls fix this ASAP.
Noooo! I liked the board moving editing!!
by Julian's mommie on 2018/05/23 17:01
Why are all the awesome features being removed? I was loving that I could edit and move my boards to organize it all! I wasn’t done yet! Now I can’t rearrange my boards making my profile all pretty. Looks like I would have to do a tedious job of creating and moving the pins separately. I love the sun board/section feature added. But it would be even more awesome of a sub board in a sub-board. That would make my Pinterest life the best in organization! It’s great now we have the introduction of the lightbulb to find more like a particular pin that now replaces the circle thing that was removed. What I found is needed is being able to see who follows what of my boards and profile. Some people only follow a board, so when I delete a board or moved it as a sub board, those people are now gone. Would be nice to have an option to message the people that follow a board that the board was moved and give them the option to refollow the board that was moved or changed or follow my entire profile. Now, that would be awesome! I’m now sadden I can’t move my boards around now. Booo.
Too many ads
by R in roc on 2019/01/06 04:16
I used to use Pinterest a lot. I loved seeing interesting boards and people I followed. Now it’s tons of ads and auto play ads. The quantity of ads ruin the look and feel of Pinterest. I scroll through Instagram all the time and the ads don’t bother me. Pinterest has failed to learn the art of making ads appealing. They just bombard you with gobs of ads with that annoying and condescending message about how those ads were paid for. We get how ads work. Having it spelled out every time is not needed. The auto play ads are awful. Just let me turn them off even if I on WiFi. They continue the ruination of Pinterest by ads and take to the next level. They other major complaint is that I’m constantly inundated with suggestions or content I don’t want at the expense of seeing content I do want. Their algorithms are so off for both advertising and content. I rarely use Pinterest anymore and usually get right off of it after less than a minute because the ads ruin the vibe and aesthetic. Only thing Pinterest cares about is advertising. It’s too bad they could care enough to make the advertising appealing and blended into the aesthetic that made Pinterest so great before. At the rate I don’t use it. I’ll probably delete it soon. Enjoy those ads.
Thankful
by DDDDDDDjjjjawwsh on 2019/04/01 16:55
Love it! So today I went on my Pinterest to look up pictures of braids and was amazed by something for the first time since I started using the platform. Now, while I am a long time user of Pinterest, for the longest time I’ve complained about not being able to search for the type of people that look like me. That if I were to type in “short curly hair styles” I’d get page after page of white girls. Nothing wrong with them, the pics were beautiful, but just not very representative of me and my hair. This is not to say that I couldn’t find black girls, it just wasn’t easy. I’d have to find one, then scroll to look at similar pics and so on. So back to today, when I typed in “braids” on Pinterest I got the option to choose a skin tone. I nearly cried. This one tiny, simple act of inclusion felt so overwhelming and powerful. All I have to say is, I am more than grateful and so excited to keep using the platform for everything from daydreaming about my future house to choosing my latest hairstyle. Just now with a bit more ease. Thank you.
Update is horrible...
by Jack and Jill of Albuquerque on 2018/06/06 12:55
I’ve been using Pinterest since before it was cool, and normally I don’t mind app changes and updates. But this time did me in. I really only want to see stuff from people I follow, and maybe a few pins from similar boards. However, the “following” tab doesn’t show everything my friends pin. And the home page is all, wait for it....., MCU spoilers. Yes, folks. I have gone the entire MCU without having a movie spoiled and along comes Pinterest and suddenly I’m savvy to every Infinity War death. But here’s the real problem. I have spent every day of the past week hiding every Marvel pin I come across, (like, 30 a day) and yet every time I open the app theres still more at the top of my feed. And it’s not just marvel. I’ve been doing a lot of hiding to try and get my feed back to something i enjoy. But it’s the same with other content as well. Instead of giving me less, the app just keeps sending me more of the same. So my Pinterest experience has been reduced to scrolling through the main feed, trying to find my friends’ pins while trying not to read anything else. Cmon, Pinterest. Let’s get back to a tailored Pinterest experience and not what the algorithms want to show people.
You guys ruined it
by Crystal_opf on 2019/01/19 05:01
In scanning through the recent comments, it seems I’m in the majority. I won’t goin to details because everyone here is saying the same thing, too many ads, content that’s chosen for me based on algorithms that flood my feed with one topic- usually the last thing I searched for, and seriously- what is the point of following other people here? I barely see friends pins show up in my feed. Yes I’m interested in seeing what they pin- that’s why I follow them. All of this has been said in much greater detail here, but the thing that drove me to write this review is the latest update with the stupid freaking dots all over an image I’m trying to look at, so that I don’t miss out on the opportunity to buy it all- problem is, I can’t see it at all because there are white dots in the way! And then when I try to scroll down to see more pins like the one in viewing, which used to be a nice feature, I’m bombarded with more ads! The only reason you’re getting to stars is because I wanted to thank you - all the updates have so ruined the app, that I’m spending way less time in my phone now. I’m actually picking up real magazines again- which has been really nice. So thank you, two stars for you.
Finally, some improvements!
by Dizzyrdhd on 2018/10/19 00:18
Many of these comments are for the browser and not the app, and most of the issues raised have been fixed... For example, there IS a way to see pins from just those you follow - there is a feed devoted to that now. It’s wonderful! And, sponsored pins are fewer in the home feed, which does a good job of tracking my interests... Saving a pin is much easier than it used to be - one click instead of three (so you you can pin three times as much before you get carpel tunnel symptoms. Ha!) And, the ‘like’ feature is back for group boards. (As a group board owner, that’s the way I used it most often, anyway.) The BEST most WONDERFUL thing of all is that you can organize your pins by dragging them around a page (instead of repinning them in a new order). This makes Pinterest SO much more fun! Also, the option to have sections in each board is a dream come true... I will give a 5-star rating to Pinterest when the glitches in the app and on the computer stop occurring so often. I will say, the support team is VERY responsive. So, bravo!! I rate Pinterest 4 1/2 stars.
I also miss the old Pinterest
by Maybe spoilers? on 2018/09/30 23:33
I’m sorry but I came to the App Store, just now from Pinterest, to say that with every update Pinterest seems to be getting worse. Enough already. I’ve been here from the beginning and I flat out refuse to update on my iPad because I realized it just isn’t getting better. I don’t understand why we can’t search within categories like “entertainment,” “pets,” “crafts,” etc anymore... I don’t want a home feed, and then a separate place for people I’m following, that makes no sense. It used to be much more user friendly. Also the “algorithms” or whatever they call it are out of control. I’ll click on one pin for say, cupcakes while in search. And next thing I know I have a million cupcake recipes throwing themselves at me, one after another in my feed. Like, chill out Pinterest. One thing I miss is the “tried it” feature. When they implemented that a few updates ago it was great. Somehow they messed that up too with a recent update. Now you can’t simply comment on a recipe without adding a picture or something. My complaint is the new Pinterest is not user friendly. Which is a shame because I love Pinterest it’s my favorite app. There’s really nothing like it.
Don’t have an opinion just Share, Share, and watch our Ads!
by Juggling Multiple Jobs on 2017/10/27 12:41
What you dislike should be every bit as important as what you Like And not everything you Like is what you want to spread around and share! Pinterest has removed key features in its app over the last year that have so severely reduced its personalized uniqueness and usefulness I may as well be on Imgur. The ability to dislike something (to tailor it out of your feed) for a reason other than a Report Issue (which will only affect that pin, not your preferences) has virtually disappeared, telling the app that you are sick of your feed being overrun by useless/uninteresting/ubiquitous paid advertisements is useless (1:6 pins still an add after a month of hiding every paid add as “I just don’t like ads”), you can no longer “Like” and save a pin that you don’t want to further spread to others resulting in suggested new pins being reduced to the same 100-or-so pins from different feeds (amazingly Pinterest, some of us actually want to _test_ a recipe/troubleshooting tactic/product Before we give a seal of approval and share it with the world!) But, money and sponsorships are successfully destroying what was once a truly inspired community sharing app.
Frustrated
by poopy pants magruff on 2018/11/23 21:35
Well I love Pinterest, but lately a lot of content has redirects that take one to dead ends or to un related content when trying to follow feeds. But my one real issue is that when trying to enlarge a picture or page, the page locks up and I have to completely close out the app and then restart the app and then try and re-find the lost pin. OR, if I am afraid of a freeze up I have to save it so I can get back to the particular pin I am interested in. Which forces one to save a lot of junk that I don’t want to save, just to look at. This has been a problem for at least 5 or 6 iterations of updates. I know I am not the only person that faces this issue. Then trying to find a way to report this issue through there web sight is almost impossible lol. I wish they had an easy to find ( report issues with the app ) feed on there web sight. I hope some one from the app developers department see’s this and contacts me. So they can either fix the issue or identify if the problem is me and not the app and that I am ether not operating the app correctly or if the resolution is in front of me and just don’t see it.
What I want next...
by Medieval Trovist on 2018/03/14 19:08
An app so ridiculously great...it did not force my thumb over a topic to create as a board when I already have rich and popular boards I have made myself. I also want an app that let us really, really get rid of some pins when we say go away. Also let us have some better filters for safety. And...Space for artists and photographers to create and add quickly? Just brainstorming now. The app is fast and straight forward. I do need something though. I need to be able to flip back more easily to a certain selection of the suggestions that first pop up, as they erase something I spotted but cannot find again because the suggestions were refreshed. Being able to have pathing that tracks how you got to pins, how you have been exploring might be a good tool to find your spot or spots after backing out of a certain selection of similar pins and the similar pins before that. I can get lost in this are with similar pins, but I want to be able to go back in down a path of similar pins as easily as I can back out simply to the first pin I saw.
Browsing blind
by Kostina on 2017/09/18 23:23
I really have not liked the changes Pinterest has made to their platform over the last 3 to 4 iterations. I don't like not being able to like other people's pins--it completely removed any nod toward being a "social" media platform when it did this. When I liked something, it was usually because I appreciated what my friend had pinned and I wanted them o know I saw it and liked it--for them, not for me. If I like it for me I would have pinned it also. I despise the constant bombardment of ads in the feed. No matter how many times I change my settings, send feedback on spammy ads, or completely block ad promoter, the ads still keep flooding in. With so many ads, it compounds one of the more recent issues arising from changes--you can't see who has pinned something without first clicking on it, so now you're sucked even deeper into the ad nonsense. If I didn't have so much stuff pinned already, I would not sign up for it. As it is, I mainly use Pinterest for recipes and ideas. I am in the process of moving my recipes out to a different platform so I won't have to interface with Pinterest. Just a bunch of bad moves on their part. One. Right. After. Another.
