    Hitting a creative wall where you don’t know what food to prepare or what decorations to use can cost you precious time. Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration since users constantly provide DIY hacks and food recipes that can give your party a unique twist.

    Nothing’s worse than trying to plan a DIY kids party and not knowing where to start. Instead of spending 4 hours searching through party supply and craft stores, go in with some inspiration of what you want. Pinterest is perfect for decoration, goodie bag, and food ideas.

    Find different ideas and inspiration for slime that you can make with your family at home. Instead of just using the standard 1 or 2 kinds of slime, you can make a special slime that is more exciting and fun to play with made by others who love slime.

    Trying to find a quality airplane design that only takes 10 minutes to make can take quite a bit of searching. Pinterest has hundreds of different paper airplane designs with great tutorials, so you can start throwing paper airplanes around in no time.

  • 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
  • Pop-up notifications too big Apr 24, 2021

    By Minnie Angie
    I’ve been a fan of Pinterest for many years. I’ve seen the way the app has changed visually quite a few times. I loved it then and still do now. One thing I’d like to change is the way notifications look when I save or delete something. The banner that tells me that I’ve successfully saved a pin to a board, blocks a portion of the next pin that I’m currently looking at. It’s too large (a big white bar) and stays on the screen a bit longer than I would like. I’d like to see a more minimal design: thinner banner, smaller font, maybe less opaque, and disappears quickly. Perhaps it could just be a simple checkmark with the name of the board the pin was saved to. if I was a casual user who only saved a few pins at a time, it probably wouldn’t bother me so much. But I tend to fall into a rabbit hole of inspo and pin so many photos to different boards that the huge pop-up hinders the experience. It would be great if I could move through photo to photo more smoothly. It’s something super minimal, but I really don’t have an issue with anything else apart from this. When there are unexpected issues within the app, I find it’s pretty easy to get around the problem and it gets resolved fairly quickly by the team (very good job on that part). It’s just this banner thing that’s not up to me to change and it’s something I encounter every time I’m on Pinterest.
  • 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.
  • Unfixed issues Mar 3, 2021

    By randomfamdom123
    So I have had the Pinterest app for about four or five years. For a while everything was good, everything worked and I didn’t have many problems. However, recently a problem has popped up that seems unable to be fixed. I am unable to follow anybody, I can unfollow people but for some reason when I go into somebody’s profile and hit the follow button it lights up and tells me that I am unable to follow the person. But when I hit the back button and go back in I am not following them anymore. Contacting Pinterest support proved to be a hassle as I either got a bit or a supposedly real person that was talking about issues on my pins that had nothing to do with the original problem at all. I even tried all the tips given, deleting app cache didn’t work, unfollowing pins and boards did not work and uninstalling and then reinstalling the app did not work. I was honestly about to just give up when I finally got a real person and they said that they were working on it and that it would take a while. I have not heard anything back since and even after multiple app updates the problem is still there. So yes Pinterest has a ton of pins and stuff but when you encounter an actual problem it is almost not worth it to try and contact support because either you get an unhelpful bot that gives you tips you already did. Very rarely do you get somebody real, it took me ten tries to get a real person
  • Best thing ever Dec 28, 2017

    By Rosycheeks13
    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!

    Something has changed dramatically for the worst with this app! Pinterest was a favorite. It use to be a straight forward app with a simple display and simple to navigate. Now the on screen images are crowded out by additional images and options. WAY too crowded and busy. Less would be more, the last two updates are ruining this app for me and probably others. This is my only social app., I have enjoyed it for years but ... The K.I.S.S principle should be applied here. Keep It Simple Stup*d!
  • 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!

    Changing my review now that the quick save has been fixed. I wish that I could customize the settings a bit more, such as turning off notifications. I don't like having to click it each time to make the number bubble disappear. I don't like that I can't just turn off the notification all together. Locking users out of these types of options is a bit annoying. Everything else works great.

    This app is starting to suck. Becoming more like instagram. You can't make multiple pins anymore because when you pin to a board and go back, the feed refreshes and you have lost the other pins forever. It's almost impossible to find accounts of people you know anymore. You type in a name, 3 people with the same name come up. If your friend isnt there you are asked if you want to see more accounts with that name. You tap screen and you are taken to ads. I tried multiple times. Too many ads now

    By Brendan Kelso
    The latest updates are terrible. As soon as I save a pin my whole board resets, there is no longer the option to search for pins based on boards you've made, and I'm always "offline" when I'm constantly connected to the internet. Go back to how it was, you're ruining the app.

    I love Pinterest but their Android app is not user-friendly, especially compared to there desktop site and iOS app. No search bar or easy way to navigate your boards when saving a pin. I can't always swipe from one pin to the next. If you view a pin from a search, save it, and return to the search it doesn't take you to where you left of, it reloads the entire search. I don't save to my profile and it's always at the top of my save list instead of other relavent boards.

    The amount of ads I see is becoming way too excessive. There's almost as many ads as there are pins at this point. I don't even want to use Pinterest anymore because of all the ads. Along with this, there's an issue with my boards where some sections will become stuck in some places. This has happened with at least three of my boards, as well as any new ones I make. It's been over a year I've had this issue, and it still hasn't been fixed
  • None of my comments are being saved to my pins! Sep 17, 2019

    By Fionajuliana
    I mostly love Pinterest and the app, but there is definite room for improvement. Severely dislike the new way to search! Please go back to the way it was before this last update. Also, the constant refreshing means that as soon as I focus on a pin I might want to click on it’s gone. Please allow us Pinners to manually refresh our feed! Probably my biggest complaint is the lack of ability to edit the title or description of the pins we pin via the app. It was there and now exists only on the full site. Now I’m having to go back through EACH pin I’ve saved in the last few weeks and edit EVERY ONE on my computer. PLEASE fix this! The comments are where we, as Pinners, get to add our own thoughts to the ideas we are pinning and it’s the way we can search our own pins to find the ones we’ve saved. It is an essential function of the pinning process! That is the point right? To actually use the pins we save? Looking forward to having this bug squashed soon! Lastly, if I could have Pinterest the way I really liked it best I would return the like button and remove the tried button. I don’t really care who has tried a pin that I save. If I needed to gather several ideas quickly I would go through and like several pertinent pins so they were saved and go back to pin them later when I had time to add my own descriptions. Feeling nostalgic just now! Please bring back the likes! Thanks!
  • This used to be my favorite app! Jul 22, 2021

    By oldguytimes
    Like the title says, I absolutely loved the old Pinterest. The update last year maybe made it a whole lot harder to navigate. I was accustomed to searching for boards so that I could easily follow other people who shared my very specific interests, but now that option has been gone for months! I’ve been meaning to write this review since then, but this newest update from a few days ago expedited it. Another of my main issues is the shopping aspect. In the older versions, it was more geared to crafting/diy/budget ideas. Now, I search for something simple like knitting ideas, and all I get back are shopping suggestions and priced items for sale. And there’s even a shopping section! I understand the need to evolve and bring in new demographics, but I feel that a lot of Pinterest’s original draw and identity has disappeared. Now, it behaves more like an Instagram or Facebook feed, filled with advertisements and shopping. It’s very disappointing to me that Pinterest has become so much like all the other dime-a-dozen social media apps and sites, since I initially fell in love with it years before because it avoided that world I hated. It felt quiet, calm, secluded, like a library or a yarn store, and I could do my own thing with topics I loved across the “board.” I am really, really bummed about all the changes and am considering deleting, which would be a major change. Please, please bring back some of the original features!

    Can see only a handful of pins, the rest are just empty boxes, its getting really frustrating, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it seems even worse. 😔 I used to love this app, it was my go to for finding anything, it's such a shame.

    I've always had this issue where the pictures do not apppear unless I click on them, but now even if I click on them they take forever to load. Also the recent changes (the live feed, the stories and all that) qre extremely unnecessary. People download this app to look at pictures and get inspired by them, not watch someone go live fpr whatever reason... I'm truly disappointed and dissatisfied.

    I can’t imagine not having Pinterest. I could be without all other websites and social media, but the creative side of me needs my Pinterest fix. I’m able to organize all of my ideas which is great for me because my mind runs 90mph with these ideas every day either way. I love my secret boards. I love trying new things. This year I have a new raised garden bed and redoing my front yard. One of my favorite things about it is that I can make Pinterest my MAIN Wishlist/Registry I don’t have to make a bunch of different registries for events... I can add people to a board and pin things from ANY website. So I don’t have to remember all those passwords for those individual sites. (Example: You’re having a baby and want to have a Target Registry, Babies R Us Registry, Buy Buy Baby Registry, etc etc...) Instead of doing them all separately you can just pin all the products you want from those websites directly to ONE BOARD on Pinterest. You can add your friends and family to the board or you can just send them your board link. They can follow the link and look at everything you’ve pinned in one place and make a purchase. You don’t need to create registries anymore. Everything I need is available on Pinterest. Thanks y’all!

    By 77 and still learning
    As a retired educator of 44 years I have felt bad about students not learning the “basics”. I am a firm believer in lifetime learning however and have found the internet, especially Pinterest and u tube to be an amazing resource. My hobbies include woodworking, welding, customizing autos, boats, motorcycles, oil painting, silversmithing, etc. no day passes that I do not find something valuable. After camping and hunting for a lifetime I am shocked about how many tips I find to make these hobbies more comfortable or economical. Think about being turned around in the woods or a city. Ask seri and you can get out the most isolated spot. Drive along and see a sign in Spanish or some other language and you can get a translation, The benefits are endless and Pinterest is a wonderful tool. The biggest problem I had with public school students was the question “where are we going to use this?” If you are in an unsatisfactory, dead end job then education is the rescue. Education does not have to be classical academic. It can be welding, home building, concrete work, electrical, auto repair, beauty school, or what ever you are interested in. Pinterest can answer a lot of questions about whether to proceed into a field. Keep an open mind!
  • Great App but Needs Some Work... Dec 18, 2017

    By Minecraft1207
    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.

    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.
  • awesome but Nov 14, 2020

    By GHOOOSSSTTT
    hi! i love pinterest, i’ve been using it since like 2012 when i got my first ipod touch. It’s been awesome and i have like, a gazillion boards for fashion and art references and nerdy projects and i love it BUUUTTTT ya’ll switched up the way we choose the board we’re saving a pin to and i am not okay. I had the max number of boards (150?) and then when the max number rose i’ve continued to make more and more boards and honestly??? manually scrolling past every single board i’ve made since i was 14 instead of the alphabet slider is TOUGH but then to top it off, whenever i pass the board im looking for, when i try to scroll up it just closes the whole screen and im back starting at the pin i wanted to save but couldn’t. It is such a hassle and the select-a-board screen is so sensitive that sometimes it takes me like 3-4 tries to pin something. and when i use a board that has a ton of sections in it, i have to successfully navigate the new way to pin things ✨twice✨ to actually pin something. I’m in my 20s, i grew up on tech, im not dumb. please at least make the slider less sensitive, and i’d really appreciate getting the alphabet slider back. i’m dying 🥺
  • Board sections finally came and are amazing!!! (Need a couple fixes though) Nov 10, 2017

    By ncmtngirl60
    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.
  • Love Love Love Pinterest, FYI Version 7.41.2 Bug Nov 25, 2019

    By mmmattieee
    I love Pinterest. I’ve been using it almost every day for over 7 years. Love the App! It’s only gotten. Better Love the content and the concepts! I love the algorithm, always shows me perfectly related searches and ideas for crafts for look books! I’m able to collaborate with people and create coordinated projects. I use it for vision boarding my goals, picking an outfit in the morning, and putting together my dreams! It’s very easy to use! Very forgiving of any mistakes I make with my fat fingers. One bug. In version 7.41.2 the app keeps freezing on me. I’ll be scrolling and my screen will freeze and the app will, after a couple minutes of fighting, shut down. Or I’ll be in a post and it’s just unresponsive. When this happens I usually close it, open another app and it’s working fine, my phone isn’t frozen so I give Pinterest a moment and it works again but it’s been happening almost every time I open the app! Never got a bug like this that lasted this long, usually you guys are good at sending updates to catch them in time before I loose my mind. Update soon please!! Keep up the good work
  • 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
  • Pop-up notifications too big Apr 24, 2021

    By Minnie Angie
    I’ve been a fan of Pinterest for many years. I’ve seen the way the app has changed visually quite a few times. I loved it then and still do now. One thing I’d like to change is the way notifications look when I save or delete something. The banner that tells me that I’ve successfully saved a pin to a board, blocks a portion of the next pin that I’m currently looking at. It’s too large (a big white bar) and stays on the screen a bit longer than I would like. I’d like to see a more minimal design: thinner banner, smaller font, maybe less opaque, and disappears quickly. Perhaps it could just be a simple checkmark with the name of the board the pin was saved to. if I was a casual user who only saved a few pins at a time, it probably wouldn’t bother me so much. But I tend to fall into a rabbit hole of inspo and pin so many photos to different boards that the huge pop-up hinders the experience. It would be great if I could move through photo to photo more smoothly. It’s something super minimal, but I really don’t have an issue with anything else apart from this. When there are unexpected issues within the app, I find it’s pretty easy to get around the problem and it gets resolved fairly quickly by the team (very good job on that part). It’s just this banner thing that’s not up to me to change and it’s something I encounter every time I’m on Pinterest.
  • 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.

    Changing my review now that the quick save has been fixed. I wish that I could customize the settings a bit more, such as turning off notifications. I don't like having to click it each time to make the number bubble disappear. I don't like that I can't just turn off the notification all together. Locking users out of these types of options is a bit annoying. Everything else works great.
  • 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.
  • Suggestion to the app developers Mar 16, 2019

    By Guardrock
    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.
  • High Praise, but why change the feed on ‘following’ to single pix? Mar 15, 2019

    By OrchidGirl60
    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.
  • Where did the “Like” button go? Feb 2, 2020

    By Tgdovic2
    I’m all about Pinterest. I love the recipe and meal ideas, the seasonal outfit ideas, the cookie & cake decorating ideas and the ability to find awesome ideas for parties I’m planning. When I first started using Pinterest, years ago, not only could you save a pin, you could click on a little heart and like it. Where did that go? Now, on another person’s board, I saw a little lightbulb in the bottom left of the pin that said to tap and hold for reactions. This is great but when I went into my board to check out my pins it didn’t have that feature. I’d kind of like the option to like a pin again, especially pins personal pins, not just re-pinned things. Will everyone eventually get these reaction buttons? I really hope so. I guess what I’m saying is it would be great if someone saw a pin that was of, say, my own personal content, they would both have the option to “Like” it and to re-pin it. It be nice for the person who’s putting their own content on Pinterest to know if their followers like what they’re pinning. Other than that I think maybe you could slow down on the ads a little. I know Pinterest is free, which is fabulous, but ads popping up more than once or twice during a video is really annoying.
  • Still great! Dec 19, 2018

    By JillianAbigaleM
    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!
  • Unfixed issues Mar 3, 2021

    By randomfamdom123
    So I have had the Pinterest app for about four or five years. For a while everything was good, everything worked and I didn’t have many problems. However, recently a problem has popped up that seems unable to be fixed. I am unable to follow anybody, I can unfollow people but for some reason when I go into somebody’s profile and hit the follow button it lights up and tells me that I am unable to follow the person. But when I hit the back button and go back in I am not following them anymore. Contacting Pinterest support proved to be a hassle as I either got a bit or a supposedly real person that was talking about issues on my pins that had nothing to do with the original problem at all. I even tried all the tips given, deleting app cache didn’t work, unfollowing pins and boards did not work and uninstalling and then reinstalling the app did not work. I was honestly about to just give up when I finally got a real person and they said that they were working on it and that it would take a while. I have not heard anything back since and even after multiple app updates the problem is still there. So yes Pinterest has a ton of pins and stuff but when you encounter an actual problem it is almost not worth it to try and contact support because either you get an unhelpful bot that gives you tips you already did. Very rarely do you get somebody real, it took me ten tries to get a real person

    Something has changed dramatically for the worst with this app! Pinterest was a favorite. It use to be a straight forward app with a simple display and simple to navigate. Now the on screen images are crowded out by additional images and options. WAY too crowded and busy. Less would be more, the last two updates are ruining this app for me and probably others. This is my only social app., I have enjoyed it for years but ... The K.I.S.S principle should be applied here. Keep It Simple Stup*d!
  • 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!
  • Long time user Jun 25, 2021

    By lilyandrist
    I’ve been a regular pinterest user for almost a decade now. I rarely have a day where I don’t check my Pinterest. I mainly use it to curate aesthetics and find inspiration for my life. It’s very soothing and artistic to me, and the only social media I’ll use. However, I feel as though Pinterest has recently gone down hill. There’s an overwhelming amount of ads. To the point of every other pin is an ad. Most of them are irrelevant to me and my feed is no longer aesthetically pleasing, just full of junk. And I’m not opposed to tasteful ads- I’ve even bought multiple products advertised to me on Pinterest that had beautiful ads that matched my interest and weren’t overwhelming. But there’s just too many now and too many pointless ones. It makes Pinterest significantly less enjoyable. I also don’t understand why Pinterest no longer shows you who pinned the pins in your feed, and when you click in you can’t click on the original user who pinned. It’s totally confusing and counterintuitive- I keep trying to click the icons of people to view their profile but I can’t. The best way for me to do it is to scroll through the hundreds of people I follow to find them. It’s a huge pain. Please make peoples profiles clickable from their pins like they used to be. I’m satisfied with most of the other features of this app and glad to be a part of the community!
  • Sep 14, 2021

    By Cassie Steger
    Lowering my review. So many ads and suggestions that it's getting hard to look at things I like. Be careful with one-off searches, they will continue to show up in your feed, even if you hide it. New shopping folder created and can't be uncreated, full of pins that are apparently things for sale. Some search topics blocked
  • 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.
  • Bring back “Search By Board”!! Feb 1, 2021

    By Melisska72
    I’ve used Pinterest for years and love the ability to be able find ideas & inspiration! I mainly use the mobile version of Pinterest because of how smooth and effortless it is (along with the fact I’m always on my phone!) and I find that just searching for terms doesn’t yield varied results, so about 90% of my time I search things and select “view by board” to browse the collections other people have made! Being able to see other people’s “finds” or their own uploads is a perfect way to fill up my own boards. If I wanted to search for a certain aesthetic or look for certain types of recipes for example, how else would I find good boards to follow so that I can see their posts in my feed? However, when I last updated it, the feature that allowed us to search by board on mobile is gone!! I can’t even hit a picture and be able to trace it to the boards it shows up on. All the pins on my main feed I can’t even see where they came from. I expand my results not by hoping Pinterest’s own algorithms pick up what they think I want to see, but by what boards and pinners I follow!! Please bring this back! The fun of Pinterest is in cultivating all kinds of resources or pictures in one place, what good is that if I can’t even have the option to view the ones others have made?
  • Good in the past, but terrible updates! Jun 10, 2021

    By my thiccy butt
    I have been using the Pinterest app for years now, and these updates may be terrible enough for me to finally leave. First of all, the stories/slides function is confusing and difficult to use. If I’m ever swiping through content it’s a hassle to get through these stories that often have nothing to do with what I’ve pinned in the past, which brings me to my next point: the algorithm. I am constantly getting both suggested pins and targeted ads that have nothing to do with any boards or searches I’ve made! My home feed is full of ads that I am not interested in with very little actual content, much of which is irrelevant as well. It seems like the “hide pin” feature doesn’t even do anything to improve my feed. To me, it seems like Pinterest is struggling to remain relevant in the wake of Instagram and TikTok by introducing new features and changing up how content reaches viewers, but I think I speak for the majority of Pinterest users when I say that people don’t use Pinterest in the same way we use other platforms. There’s no need for flash and flair when Pinterest is already a well-designed social media platform with a specific user base in mind, and making these changes just interrupts the way people use the app.
  • Sep 14, 2021

    By Brendan Kelso
    The latest updates are terrible. As soon as I save a pin my whole board resets, there is no longer the option to search for pins based on boards you've made, and I'm always "offline" when I'm constantly connected to the internet. Go back to how it was, you're ruining the app.
  • Sep 15, 2021

    By Challis Gill
    I love Pinterest but their Android app is not user-friendly, especially compared to there desktop site and iOS app. No search bar or easy way to navigate your boards when saving a pin. I can't always swipe from one pin to the next. If you view a pin from a search, save it, and return to the search it doesn't take you to where you left of, it reloads the entire search. I don't save to my profile and it's always at the top of my save list instead of other relavent boards.
  • None of my comments are being saved to my pins! Sep 17, 2019

    By Fionajuliana
    I mostly love Pinterest and the app, but there is definite room for improvement. Severely dislike the new way to search! Please go back to the way it was before this last update. Also, the constant refreshing means that as soon as I focus on a pin I might want to click on it’s gone. Please allow us Pinners to manually refresh our feed! Probably my biggest complaint is the lack of ability to edit the title or description of the pins we pin via the app. It was there and now exists only on the full site. Now I’m having to go back through EACH pin I’ve saved in the last few weeks and edit EVERY ONE on my computer. PLEASE fix this! The comments are where we, as Pinners, get to add our own thoughts to the ideas we are pinning and it’s the way we can search our own pins to find the ones we’ve saved. It is an essential function of the pinning process! That is the point right? To actually use the pins we save? Looking forward to having this bug squashed soon! Lastly, if I could have Pinterest the way I really liked it best I would return the like button and remove the tried button. I don’t really care who has tried a pin that I save. If I needed to gather several ideas quickly I would go through and like several pertinent pins so they were saved and go back to pin them later when I had time to add my own descriptions. Feeling nostalgic just now! Please bring back the likes! Thanks!
  • This used to be my favorite app! Jul 22, 2021

    By oldguytimes
    Like the title says, I absolutely loved the old Pinterest. The update last year maybe made it a whole lot harder to navigate. I was accustomed to searching for boards so that I could easily follow other people who shared my very specific interests, but now that option has been gone for months! I’ve been meaning to write this review since then, but this newest update from a few days ago expedited it. Another of my main issues is the shopping aspect. In the older versions, it was more geared to crafting/diy/budget ideas. Now, I search for something simple like knitting ideas, and all I get back are shopping suggestions and priced items for sale. And there’s even a shopping section! I understand the need to evolve and bring in new demographics, but I feel that a lot of Pinterest’s original draw and identity has disappeared. Now, it behaves more like an Instagram or Facebook feed, filled with advertisements and shopping. It’s very disappointing to me that Pinterest has become so much like all the other dime-a-dozen social media apps and sites, since I initially fell in love with it years before because it avoided that world I hated. It felt quiet, calm, secluded, like a library or a yarn store, and I could do my own thing with topics I loved across the “board.” I am really, really bummed about all the changes and am considering deleting, which would be a major change. Please, please bring back some of the original features!

    I've always had this issue where the pictures do not apppear unless I click on them, but now even if I click on them they take forever to load. Also the recent changes (the live feed, the stories and all that) qre extremely unnecessary. People download this app to look at pictures and get inspired by them, not watch someone go live fpr whatever reason... I'm truly disappointed and dissatisfied.
  • Tired of my home feed refreshing all the time Jul 24, 2021

    By Billy0Bee
    I’ve never made a review before because I didn’t care enough to before. But I have so much dedication to Pinterest, my issues with the updates have begun affecting my attitude for the app. I’ve been on Pinterest for probably a decade and no update has me more upset than the constant refreshing of the home page. I use all the platforms so I know that if you change from the home feed to your profile or to the search tab back to the home feed, the home feed automatically refreshes... when I even open the app sometimes I see a pin right away that I’d pin but for some reason it refreshes!! This is so irritating. Please fix this to wear it only updates the Home Screen if you pull down the feed from the top for a second. Like Twitter. You can’t even scroll through the feed sometimes without it randomly updating. Also the ads Pinterest.. come on. They’re every third pin! I get you have to pay the bills but more often than not your ads are irrelevant to my search. Speaking of searching, why is it that when I search one thing my home feed will suddenly be filled with that one search? I didn’t follow the topic, I didn’t follow a new board, I don’t care to see it on the home feed I have sort of curated myself. This has been a lot of complaints and my rating is low so that you get how irritated I am. But any other time you’d get a 5/5. I love you Pinterest, rarely change.
  • After all the feedback it doesn’t seem they care. Jun 11, 2021

    By Jessicarnahan87
    Update: they added a shopping board and now I have duplicates of that. Stop adding boards! Shopping is not why I get on Pinterest and judging by other reviews id guess no one else is either. So much spam now. So many stolen pins for super spammy web sites. Over all its a good app but they seem to make things worst every time this app gets updated. This last update left me with three “all pins” boards that you cant get rid of. The suggestions have gotten better, but again the main issue is there is just so many bad pins on here now. Update: There are now 8 “all pins” boards. Just did an update this morning. I also noticed that now eBay, walmart, and target are stealing pins and when you click to go to the post it takes you to their site instead. Also, tic toc ads are everywhere. No matter how many times I say I'm not interested it still shows up in my feed. I cannot begin to explain how much I don't care about tic toc and no matter how many times it pops up, I'm not clicking the link or saving the pin. Also, Pinterest almost seems pointless if you are using it for a blog since its hard to tell if an interested pinner will actually see anything you post. So for that reason ive taken away a star and will continue to until things are actually fixed or it seems they are taking their users feedback seriously.
  • 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.
  • Why have you done this ? Aug 4, 2021

    By Frepples
    This app used to be perfectly functional but now it is completely dysfunctional . The purpose of Pinterest is to save “pins” and sort them into “boards” so that you may have an organized place to save various pictures/ links of different themes . Now , every pin you save automatically saves to something called “profile” and if you want to sort it into a specific board you have to go out of your way to change it which is a huge pain . In addition , you are no longer allowed to look at your boards so even if you sort your pins into them you’re only allowed to look at the pins all mixed together in an big ol’ mess . On top of that , now whenever you search for anything it automatically searches for only things that are for sale and you have to manually change it to search the whole of Pinterest . I have spent so much time struggling to find pins I was searching for only to realize it was searching in the “shopping“ tab and that was why I couldn’t find anything . So , essentially they took away the core purposes of the app for no good reason . When will companies start to understand that corporate greed is not going to make them money and is instead the best way to drive your business into the ground ? Please just put this app back to the way it was .

    This app is starting to suck. Becoming more like instagram. You can't make multiple pins anymore because when you pin to a board and go back, the feed refreshes and you have lost the other pins forever. It's almost impossible to find accounts of people you know anymore. You type in a name, 3 people with the same name come up. If your friend isnt there you are asked if you want to see more accounts with that name. You tap screen and you are taken to ads. I tried multiple times. Too many ads now

    I was using Pinterest since years, it has always been the best, but now, the creators have destroyed it. From so long, I was just keeping pinterest for the sake of my saved pins and boards, but not anymore. I'm sorry for myself who used to suggest pinterest to every single soul she knew, before, but now I'm just done with these updates. Deleting my account.

    This app is broken!!!!. I've left numerous reviews. No response. As have other people, with the same issues. It's only any good for looking at pictures now. And I can do that on Google. I am not using pinterest anymore until it's fixed. !!!!!Comments are jumbled up out of date. !!!!!You can't post a comment 90% of the time. !!!!!!Pins "not found" 80% of the time.

    The amount of ads I see is becoming way too excessive. There's almost as many ads as there are pins at this point. I don't even want to use Pinterest anymore because of all the ads. Along with this, there's an issue with my boards where some sections will become stuck in some places. This has happened with at least three of my boards, as well as any new ones I make. It's been over a year I've had this issue, and it still hasn't been fixed

    Can see only a handful of pins, the rest are just empty boxes, its getting really frustrating, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it seems even worse. 😔 I used to love this app, it was my go to for finding anything, it's such a shame.

    I've been using Pinterest for more than 10 years and I love it. But for the first time ever while using the app I got kicked out of my account and can't log in. It keeps on telling me "Something went wrong on our end, please try again." I've uninstall it and installed it again but it still doesn't want to work. I don't know what to do.

    I just love using Pinterest.. But i dont know what just happened. I was using and suddenly I got logged out and literally I didn't did anything.. When I closed that app my ID came but all my saved pins and everything just vanished. I don't know what happened. It started from starting like gender and everything. I'm so disappointed with this.

    Used to be great. Sadly, they've ruined it with ads. I don't know much longer I'll be using it. I'd rather pay for the app and not look have at ads. Update: aug 21/The "promoted" pins with distracting video are irrelevant and have gotten out of control. I continually hide pins and block companies as per the suggestion, but irritating promotional ads from the same companies persist. Come on pinterest. This is lazy. Do better.

    The new pop up window is annoying. I pin alot and it pops up ever second. I emailed Pinterest about the issue and they replied it's because I pin alot. Hello, yes I do that's what Pinterest is for. The developers, and programmers are paid way to much for users to have limited pin access, hence I feel it's to make their jobs easier. Please next update get rid of the pop up window.

    I wish I could give this a 0 star ratin Lately I haven't been able to see any updates or replies to the my comments (I have good internet) even though the notification would pop up on my phone. I'd click the notification and it'd say "Nothing to see here. It looks like you have no new comments.(EVEN THOUGH I GOT THE NOTIFICATION) Edit your filter to see new updates, or publish new ideas to get more engagement I clicked the "reset filter" button in hopes of something happening but it didn't work
