Updated 29 July 2016:
Eagle-eyed Pinners have already started noticing that the redesign we debuted on iPhone back in April is now making its way to the Pinterest website. You can read more about the inspiration behind the new look in this in-depth breakdown from Pinterest's Creative Director of Product Design, Andreas Pihlström.
We’re lucky enough to have over 100 million Pinners around the world visiting Pinterest to find ideas to try. With so many people using our app, it’s more important than ever to make sure it works well for everyone – no matter where you live, what language you speak or how old your phone is.
So we decided to give things a complete overhaul, from what our app looks like to how fast it works. Here’s what’s new:
- A new modern look that lets you focus more on Pins.
- Universally readable, in 31 languages.
- Super fast loading, for everyone in the world. When you open the app, your home feed now loads up to 3 times faster.
These changes have laid the groundwork for future improvements, too. Now that we’ve rebuilt things in a smarter way, engineers and designers here at Pinterest will be able to develop features faster than ever before.
Because this was such a huge effort, we’re rolling out these updates on iPhone and iPad first. Make sure you update your app so you have the latest, greatest version. Android and web are next on our list to tackle, so keep your eye out for updates in the coming months.
To make sure you have the latest and greatest, update your iPhone app.
The new look just landed in the Android app. Update to the latest version to see it for yourself.
