  • I love this app Dec 16, 2020

    By yeeyee403
    I love Pinterest so much, it’s such an amazing community and is so much fun to use!! I find it so relaxing and rewarding to build my boards and find new things to love on there. I discover something exciting every day on this app, and I couldn’t be happier while using it. But, I do have a few organization suggestions that could make the app even better for users. First, I frequently find myself frustrated that I can’t make sections within a section within a board, because I love to organize so much and I think that it would be a cool feature that people would enjoy using. Adding onto this, if that idea might be too hard to figure out for some, maybe a group board option? It would be a way to group multiple boards into a pod, kind of like sections within a board, but instead, it would be the boards with the sections in them, but possibly grouped into pods. An example of this could be a pod called “Outfits”. Inside the pod, it has 3 boards, a board for each style the user likes. Within those boards, a user could put the components of an outfit into the sections, like shoes, clothes, accessories, etc. I think it would add a whole new level to our home pages and make using Pinterest so much easier and more exciting. It would also be cool to have possible themes for these boards, like background colors we could choose and pod titles. Again, I love this app and use it all the time!! Thank you so much for your time

  • Pinterest is the jack of all trades Nov 19, 2019

    By Mrs. Hoffman
    So I love love Pinterest and I always have!! But I recently got the iPhone 10 max and now it just constantly freezes up when I’m on Pinterest for a while and my phone doesn’t do this on ANY other app or any other time. So I have no idea why it keeps doing this... but it is pretty aggravating. Other than that though this app is the GREATEST!! I come here for- it used to be just for like crafts and food, but now I have come to use it for makeup ideas, for like if I have a khaki jacket and I want to see what other looks and styles and colors may go with it (that matches what I may have in my closet) I go on here for an idea of what the possibilities are to wear with it. I recently used it to find out what kinds of dresses and outfits to wear to a Christmas party.. so you can get ideas and picture yourself in the clothes, you can have a idea of what you’re looking for locally. And of course this is where I go for beautiful quotes to add on Instagram. Or funny memes even to describe super specific situations 😂 you can use Pinterest to find basically anything! Gift ideas, crafts, DIY, recipes, home decor ideas, outfit ideas, makeup tutorials, if you want a hair cut and you are looking for different styles... like you name it and they have it! Oh yea and Starbucks drinks to try!! That’s my favorite!

    This is perfect for me and maybe even for you because if you need ideas with room design , drawing ideas , making food , tattoos ideas , phone wallpaper this app has everything if you need help or you need any idea I use this app.
  • Love the app, hate the updates Mar 4, 2020

    By Emu taco's
    I love Pinterest but if you’re going to update the app and give me options of things to do, don’t take it away! I used to be able to like pins if I didn’t have a board to put it in. I can “react” to certain pictures but I can only use one reactions option and it’s not for all pins. So now I have a bunch of pointless boards so I can still see things that I like. I loved having the option of sections in boards because if I have a “house work” board I can do a section with the bathroom, the bedroom, the living room, etc. It was a while since I updated and when I finally did, I wish I hadn't. I went to create sections for my travel board based on places to make it easier to plan my own trips and I can’t! I’m actually mad about this. And something that isn’t really a major issue but kinda disappointing is that when I come across a pin that I like and want to see more of, I tap on it. But sometimes it’s just an add and it takes me to a website. Which I guess I can see more by going through the website but I can usually access the website if I voluntarily tap on the picture after getting a preview. This is also the only app that closes out on me. I know it’s a free app and it takes a while to give the app its full potential but this isn’t really a new app anymore. Keep updates!!! When you bring in a new feature, don’t take it away from us! Some of us are (more like were) using those

  • Increasingly disappointed with the app Sep 17, 2020

    By Coatesse
    Edit/Update: while the constant crash was eventually fixed (thank you) there is the issue of the auto-refresh on the home page. Please fix this. In former versions of the app you would have to manually refresh by pulling down on the home page and it would show new/different ideas to save. Now it autofreshes even if I minimize the app and come back, switch apps and come back, or when I toggl between home and the search, friends, and ‘my boards’ screens. I constantly loose sight of ideas I have for my home or recipes for my newly diabetic partner. And when I go to history the past pins I’ve viewed not only are the ones I had to physically tap on but the links to the limited pins aren’t live to take me back to them. Can’t pin things I can’t see. — Increasingly disappointed with the app as the quality of the user experience has declined with recent updates. The app crashes with each use. In the last two weeks alone I’ve needed to exit and reopen the app with every use, even with the most up to date version of the app. To add, advertisements now appear about every three pins, which decreases the ease of use of the app. When scrolling right to left, unrelated “pins” (advertisements) every three pins is very annoying especially when seeking specific content instead of casual browsing. I see the effort on aesthetic aspects of the app, however, these cannot be fully appreciated when the operation of the app falls short of pleasurable.

    updates made this app unusable. unrelated pictures won't leave my feed no matter how many times i say "not relevant to me". "more like this" & "more ideas" pages are completely random & algorithm is horrible. i was looking for a certain character just now, and it was giving me amazing results! then the page suddenly reloaded and started showing me random characters!! not only that, the app has too many bugs- i can't swipe pictures, my account doesn't show up, i can't verify my email address...

    The app gets weird when opening links. Update: I came to say how much I dislike this app only to realize I reviwed 2yrs ago. I like being able to pin things easily but I'm unable to navigate using the app to follow links, download pics from link paths, or actually search and find suggested items in what I assume are ads. I hate that even when I start using Pinterest with Chrome, if I click anything, it takes me into the app! So much frustration using this app!

    I've been a user since early beta days--this app has gone way downhill recently. There must be someone new in charge as it's now unbearably slow and cluttered. My boards don't load when trying to add a link (both from an external site and from internal). Further, search and browse are so full of ads i have to wonder whose experience do they really care about. I get it, my attention is a commodity to them...duly noted, I can easily make idea boards on my phone and file recipes on my drive.

  • Over all the stuff that I don’t follow but am forced to look at! Oct 25, 2018

    By crb022
    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.

  • Stop changing it constantly Dec 17, 2020

    By karebear2984
    I love Pinterest, I have for a while now. However, they constantly are changing their formatting & the way it’s set up. Sometimes it’s for the better; I loved when they added the sections to boards as this made it way easier to organize pins, boards, & keep track of it all. But it’s not always a good thing. Recently they updated it & got rid of the A-Z on my home page which can make it a pain if you want to pin something in the lower end of the alphabet & have a lot of boards. Or if you want to look at a board without searching the board specifically (sometimes I may forget what I titled a board) & just want to look under Q because I know I have it under a board for quotes for example. So my point is the changes they make aren’t always positive. And even if you’re like me & use Pinterest a lot it’s hard to keep up with the “new” way of doing things & set up they may have changed it to. Kinda like if someone constantly keeps giving you an updated phone, you’ll figure it sure, but if they give you one all the time it gets annoying as you’re trying to keep up with how does it function now? I mean way too constant. There may be features you really like that they do away with completely & that may ultimately make you use it less. Stop it Pinterest team. I know you’re working on improving it, & that’s great, but don’t fix what isn’t broken.

  • Long-time user but hate some of the updates Dec 15, 2020

    By WonderGround13
    I’ve loved Pinterest since a friend got me onto it, it’s perfect for my writing work and image references. I’ve stuck it out through the rough patches cause it’s just that handy. Small things here and there I can live with, but the most recent update has got things going pretty screwy and making it hard to use the mobile app. The most recent update took away the side-scrolling alphabet letter list on the board selection. I have A LOT of boards spread across TWO accounts, and I tend to move very fast when I get on a spree. And when I say a lot, I mean I’ve tapped out at the original board count before and i just keep going up! So you can imagine how time-consuming it is to have to manually scroll through Ever. Single. Board. to find the one I want to pin to. Please bring that back. Also, on the mobile app, the board selection tab while pinning is slippery AF. It’s so incredibly difficult to manually scroll cause the list keeps trying to slide itself closed at the bottom when I scroll up. If I’m trying to access boards not already in the top three selection, just throw the whole list open and keep it in place until the user closes it themselves, don’t let it go trying to close at it scrolls up or not open all the way when I’m trying to scroll down.

  • I love it but.... some stuff has to change. Dec 13, 2020

    By cats4ever!😺❤️
    I used to love Pinterest. As a baker and writer I loved looking through so many recipes and and different posts. I still love the format and everything about the app. But I have tried to post my opinions in the comments, no bad language or anything and Pinterest won’t let me. People are constantly swearing and typing inappropriate stuff but I can’t post my own opinions. I will keep Pinterest because of my hobbies, but it if uncalled for to not allow someone to post something they want or believe in. People are constantly voicing their own opinions but I can’t. It is not up to you to tell me what I can and can’t say, I understand that it is not totally designed for voicing your opinions but if you have a comment section, allow people to say what they want. Just fix the problem more social media platforms are falling into, you can’t stifle everyones voice, it’s not right. Pinterest is an amazing app for anything else, bakers, crafters, and writers or anyone else with hobbies should really enjoy the app. Thank you Pinterest for fueling my imagination and crafting, for years and hopefully more years to come. Just fix the one issue and it will be a five star app, and Pinterest will be unique from everywhere else people go for crafts and posts and whatever hobbies they are into.

  • I love Pinterest, but.. Aug 10, 2019

    By UnicornBuckeye
    i love pinterest so much and i’ve had it for a while but now, it’s starting to act up. one day i was just on pinterest after growing my account a good amount. and then suddenly it logged me out i was so confused and thought it was just a glitch and i could log back in. but i couldn’t. it said i had done something wrong and i was suspended from that account. i had no idea what it was talking about. i hadn’t done anything wrong. and i couldn’t check my email to see why i was suspended because it was hooked up with another pinterest account. so i made a new account and it was ok. but i was glitching, a lot. i couldn’t follow anyone. i would follow someone and pinterest would unfollow them. i also couldn’t message anyone. when ever i tried it would say “oops! there’s been an error” it was sooo annoying. i tried everything, restarting my phone, deleting pinterest then downloading it again. nothing worked. then free two days maybe. it logged me out and said i was suspended, again! i created a new account and maybe ten minutes into the account, which i still couldn’t follow anyone or message anyone, i got suspended from that account! i am so aggravated! it is so annoying. could you please fix this? i love pinterest not i can’t do anything anymore! thanks!

  • Have I reached the end of Pinterest? Oct 11, 2017

    By Tl333333::
    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!

  • Can only tell tech support about listed problems Dec 13, 2020

    By Barbqman
    Pinterest is pretty good unless something isn't working right, but just try to tell them something is wrong if it doesn't happen to be one of the very few problems they've decided to list on their help page. Apparently, Pinterest thinks everything is perfect and any difficulties are user problems because the available options are only about how to use it right. There seems to be no email address, etc. to which to send problems that they don't want to hear about. Well, too bad. Here's a maddening problem: If you are viewing anything that has to do with Taste of Home recipes after a minute or so a T of H ad will appear on the left and a larger one on the right. Together these block out a significant part of the screen. (I'm using an iPad 2 Air with iPadOS 14.2). You can close the ad on the left by touching the X in the upper right hand corner and it goes away completely. However, the larger one on the right simply turns off the ad and leaves a big white rectangle where the ad used to be, which continues to obliterate the same amount of the page as the ad did. There's no way to get rid of the white box. This does appear to be a problem with the app since the ads don't even appear on the T of H web page. Drives me crazy...almost as crazy as not being able to find a way to report the problem!

  • ALL Ads & Algorithm. NO (real) friends Oct 4, 2018

    By Kahleelee
    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.

  • Used to love it Nov 14, 2017

    By happy65390
    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.

  • The Algorithms Have Really Gone Downhill Jun 23, 2019

    By 3WAgirl
    I have used Pinterest for over ten years. I have loved this app/website. There is nothing else like it. Over the last couple of years, though, my feed quality has really suffered. I used to see new pins based on every one of my interests, which I had carefully cultivated. I could go months without seeing the same pin twice, and my feed was full of variety and color. Now, my feed seems to be based only on recent activity, so if I only pin to three boards over a few days or a week, I will only see content related to those three boards with maybe 1/20 being outside of those topics. If I only pin from my home feed, that means that I’m reinforcing this funnel until my home feed looks the same every single day. If I pass over a pin without saving it, it can show up in my feed again and again, making things feel stale. I’ll also see pins related to topics I don’t like, but even though I hide it, that topic will show up in my feed again and again as if I had never touched it. Also, when I do a search I’ll only get a few pages’ worth of related pins before it starts looking like my home feed, with results that have nothing to do with what I’m searching for. I still use the app because there’s no other available resource like it, but it’s no longer my favorite place for inspiration.

  • Good, but Inconsistent Nov 9, 2019

    By Clrbr77
    I love pinterest and I think the new layout is quite interesting... However, there are many essential qualities of this app that I’ve carried issues with for a long time now. The inconsistency of their effectiveness, for one, is major. Sometimes I’ll get a notification on my phone saying someone has commented or saved one of my pins... But after opening the app and checking the notifications tab I’ll find nothing at all. This doesn’t always happen but usually it does and I find it super annoying. Another example of this issue with inconsistencies— or perhaps simply an issue in general—is when I DO manage to receive a notification from someone liking or responding to my comments on pins. Upon clicking on this notification I am not directed to the actual pin itself— but merely a non-interactive image of the pin with the comment section below it. Once again, it doesn’t always happen but is especially frustrating when I want to save this pin to another board or perhaps haven’t saved it at all and wish to do so... Yet I am unable to and my only resort is to take a screenshot and search it up on my own terms. (Even then it’s almost always unsuccessful.) Like I said, Pinterest is a great app with good means— but it is small annoyances like the ones aforementioned that keep me from calling it perfect.

  • Starting to dislike Pinterest overall Jul 13, 2018

    By lexzeppelin
    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.

  • I love Pinterest but this is getting annoying Feb 24, 2019

    By tispeaches
    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.

  • Increasingly disappointed with the app Sep 17, 2020

    Edit/Update: while the constant crash was eventually fixed (thank you) there is the issue of the auto-refresh on the home page. Please fix this. In former versions of the app you would have to manually refresh by pulling down on the home page and it would show new/different ideas to save. Now it autofreshes even if I minimize the app and come back, switch apps and come back, or when I toggl between home and the search, friends, and ‘my boards’ screens. I constantly loose sight of ideas I have for my home or recipes for my newly diabetic partner. And when I go to history the past pins I’ve viewed not only are the ones I had to physically tap on but the links to the limited pins aren’t live to take me back to them. Can’t pin things I can’t see. — Increasingly disappointed with the app as the quality of the user experience has declined with recent updates. The app crashes with each use. In the last two weeks alone I’ve needed to exit and reopen the app with every use, even with the most up to date version of the app. To add, advertisements now appear about every three pins, which decreases the ease of use of the app. When scrolling right to left, unrelated “pins” (advertisements) every three pins is very annoying especially when seeking specific content instead of casual browsing. I see the effort on aesthetic aspects of the app, however, these cannot be fully appreciated when the operation of the app falls short of pleasurable.

    updates made this app unusable. unrelated pictures won't leave my feed no matter how many times i say "not relevant to me". "more like this" & "more ideas" pages are completely random & algorithm is horrible. i was looking for a certain character just now, and it was giving me amazing results! then the page suddenly reloaded and started showing me random characters!! not only that, the app has too many bugs- i can't swipe pictures, my account doesn't show up, i can't verify my email address...

    The app gets weird when opening links. Update: I came to say how much I dislike this app only to realize I reviwed 2yrs ago. I like being able to pin things easily but I'm unable to navigate using the app to follow links, download pics from link paths, or actually search and find suggested items in what I assume are ads. I hate that even when I start using Pinterest with Chrome, if I click anything, it takes me into the app! So much frustration using this app!

  • Over all the stuff that I don’t follow but am forced to look at! Oct 25, 2018

    By crb022
    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.

  • I cant see new ideas anymore, it makes me not get on this app like ever Oct 13, 2019

    By Ima star who eats other stars
    My favorite part of this app was the fact that I could go to explore and find new ideas, hence why I always have so many boards. New ideas would pop up in the explore and i would love it and go crazy looking for new ideas from pinterest by looking through the explore every chance I got but you guys got rid of the explore. Now when i click one pin even by accident i get 50 more pins for the exact same pin. Sometimes It would be one simple recipe of pie and now i have 30 of them everyday. So then you guys created an option where I can not get specific suggestions from what I clicked but even when I unfollow what I clicked it doesnt matter because my feed is literally still exact suggestions from my boards I created. So i feel like i dont get anywhere with this app. I am literally on instagram all the time because I can see different new things not different versions of the same thing especially ones I pinned already. Its fine when im searching for something but after a while I get the point and I get off the app. I wont even bring up the ads. Sorry but Im done with this app. I sure i wont be the last. Your new users dont know what their missing but seeing the same sweater everyday will get boring for them too eventually. Bring back explore so we can see new ideas, stop thinking i want to see 80 different versions of a pink Christmas tree.
