Pinterest for Android updated with notifications, mentions and more

Receive notifications, mention friends and search more easily in latest Pinterest update

Social sharing service Pinterest has updated its mobile app with a few new features this afternoon. The new Pinterest version 1.5 lets you send a pin to a friend, mention friends in comments (like many social networks) and receive push notifications when someone likes, comments on repins your items -- a feature added to the web-based Pinterest a few weeks back. In-app searching has also been improved with search term suggestion.

You can grab the latest version of Pinterest from the Google Play link above. Alternatively, hit the Play Store app to get updated if you've already installed an earlier version.

Pinterest has also been updated to version 2.4 on iOS devices.

  • Wow, social media just keeps evolving. This app can also be used to create collaborative boards. Review article here
  • The Android version doesn't allow you to search your own boards like the iPad or computer version. This is why I might be going back to Apple and giving up Android - there are a few apps I was spoiled with Apple that Android doesn't have the same functionality, but for the main interface I like Android better. It would be nice if the apps were the same as the iPad version with the Android interface - that would be perfect!
