Pinterest finally has an official Android app. The popular social network is currently in the middle of an event where they're showing off brand new mobile apps for their platform. The network that relies on users pinning items for their friends has grown enormously in the past year, which has contributed to the impatience users have felt about an official mobile app. We got a hands-on preview of the app back at Google I/O, but there was no release date at that time.
The official app looks a lot like the website and has been done really well. You see your tiled homepage with all of your friends' pins. You can search for items to pin yourself, re-pin someone else's, like a pin, and comment on a pin as well. You can also find new friends to follow directly from the app. It's done very well and the app appears very fast in the small amount of time I've been playing with it.
Check it out for yourself at the Google Play Store link, and we've got screenshots after the break.
