Pinning On The Go Just Got Better

Good news, pinners! We’re all about making Pinterest better on your Android, iPhone, and iPad, so we’re excited to roll out iOS 2.4 and Android 1.5. There are a lot of great new features, but here are the highlights:

-Receive notifications: Our notifications are now on mobile! Now you can see who commented on your pin or mentioned you whenever you have your phone handy. And if you can’t get enough, we’re also introducing push notifications so you can find out what’s happening without even opening the Pinterest app.

-Mention your friends: You can now mention people from your phone. To mention someone, just hit @ and start filling in the name of the person you want to mention. Select their name and your friend will get a notification that you mentioned them. Voila!

Search more easily: We’ll now suggest search terms as you type on mobile. You can also see recent searches you made from other places, so if you searched for a soup recipe from your computer, you can do the same search when you’re at the grocery store with just your phone to help you. It’s easy to delete these searches from your settings if you want to.

Happy (mobile) pinning!
