Pinning on the go

From: Up and Running with Pinterest

Video: Pinning on the go

My favorite feature of the Pinterest mobile app has to be the fact that I can quickly add pins to my account by taking a photo with my phone or simply by uploading an existing photo from my photo library on my device. This is huge for those of us who are always taking photos with our phones and want a way to quickly and easily share them with our friends and family. Let's imagine that you're on vacation. You could easily create a board called Our Trip to Florida or Our First Time to Seattle. And then as you were taking photos of your family trip, you could share them to those boards and allow your friends and family to see them instantly using Pinterest.

Pinning on the go

My favorite feature of the Pinterest mobile app has to be the fact that I can quickly add pins to my account by taking a photo with my phone or simply by uploading an existing photo from my photo library on my device. This is huge for those of us who are always taking photos with our phones and want a way to quickly and easily share them with our friends and family. Let's imagine that you're on vacation. You could easily create a board called Our Trip to Florida or Our First Time to Seattle. And then as you were taking photos of your family trip, you could share them to those boards and allow your friends and family to see them instantly using Pinterest.

In order to add a pin while you're on the go, just tap right here on the camera icon. Initially, it's going to launch up the Camera app, but if you don't actually want to take a photo, just tap the icon right here in the bottom-right corner. That's going to allow you access to your photos, and then you can choose a photo from your Camera Roll. So, just go until you find something you Like, tap on it, and then it goes to the Create Pin screen. Then you're going to describe your pin and tap Done at the top right. Once you do that, you select the board you want it to go to. Then you also determine your Sharing options whether or not you want to share on Facebook or Twitter.

And once you are finished, tap on Pin It! That's going to upload that photo and pin that pin to your account. If you're on your Newsfeed section of your account, once you see the Pinned! confirmation message, if you'd like to see it on your profile, navigate to your Profile section. Go to the board where you pinned it, pull down to Refresh, and there's your photo. You can navigate back by tapping Back, like so. So again, the next time you're out and about and you want to take a photo or something or just capture an idea that you'd like to share with friends and family, tap on the photo icon in the middle, take a photo or upload an existing one, give it a name, set your sharing options, tap on Pin It!, and there you go.

It's a quick and easy way to share your ideas, no matter where you happen to be in the world.
