Pinterest - App Review



Pinterest describes itself as a tool for collecting and organising things you love.

Share your interesting pictures with others, as well as reciprocating. At its simplest, this is exactly what Pinterest promises.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The easiest way to start is to set up an account (there is no charge) on your PC. You can do this with an email address or the almost customary Facebook/Twitter account access.

The home screen shows you the Pins that you originally subscribed to (minimum of 5) when you set up your account. You can scroll through these and any particularly interesting one(s) can be Pinned and shared on Facebook/Twitter, or sent to one of your contacts, as well as sending a 'like'.

There is a search function which allows you to search by popularity, all, as well as within the 33 listed categories.

You can add your own Pins either from a web site, or from your camera. This is very much a visual App, so there need to be some decent photographs, especially if you are snapping it from a web site.

You will be kept informed of notifications to which you have subscribed, including 'likes'.

Finally, the portrait silhouette option allows you to see your followers and those following you. It is also the place to create a board, as well as secret boards.

Cost
The App is free.

Indispensability
It's an excellent way to get very good images for your particular interests.

Dependability
There are no problems with the App.

Security
Obviously, you should be careful of the images you share, and the usual caveat about Facebook/Twitter account access apply.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Excellent Pics.
