Worse and worse 1/5
Pinterest has continued to get worse over time. The algorithms are atrocious. It keeps finding crap it *thinks* I’ll like - like kids books and God quotes. No matter how many times I hit the X on that crap I still see it over. And over. And over. And over. And over. And over. Finding a comparable app so I can delete this sh** once and for all. You are the absolute worst Pinterest.
Ads ruin the experience! 2/5
So tired of more and more ads all the time, especially the super-obnoxious video ads! I’ve put so much time and effort into building my boards but now I rarely use the app due to obnoxious ads all over the place. Why so greedy? You already allow people to sell their wares on the site—why all the “sponsored-products” as well? I’m giving 2 stars for efficiency and updated features and the fact that your website is not so bad. Note: my previous reviews have been deleted!
Too sensitive 3/5
By ksmd tbwkla
Posts are way too sensitive to touch. Saving things just by scrolling. WTH?
Please bring back categories 4/5
By Christa Lou
I LOVE Pinterest so much, it is my absolute go to!! But I really miss the categories options where you could browse certain groups, that was so awesome and really felt like a main feature of the app! Pleeeeease please please bring it back!
Bring back the old explore page!!! 3/5
I loved seeing many pins at once!! Now it just looks like Instagram feed smh
App freezes 3/5
App freezes ALL THE TIME. I can only scroll for maybe 5-10 mins at a time before the app freezes and just leaves a blank white screen. It’s very annoying to have to close the app and reopen it (losing what I was looking at in the process).
I used to love browsing Pinterest but now that they took the categories away, it’s not as fun. #bringbacktheoldPinterest!
Pinterest is Awesome! 5/5
I can spend hours looking over the seemingly endless topics and content on Pinterest. I love the recipes and also enjoy researching positive quotes to lift me spiritually! It really helped me when we had to put our elderly dog down. There are many ways to keep your companion in your heart and mind.
Keep up the good work!
Seriously if it ain't broke don't fix it!!!! You guys always screw it up!!! Since update the stuttering during scrolling is so bad I won’t even use the app.
Pinterest makes dreams come true 5/5
By becomes reality
I advertise you guys to everyone I meet and you guys give a lot of positive energy I was in streamly bad car accident and I have dreams and keep going to Pinterest to look at some of my dreams and thank you so much
Actually Pinterest is the best. 5/5
I love Pinterest, because is very modern, is a great alternative, has a lot ideas. You can Find according the you need. Thank you so much 😃
Too many ads now 2/5
By Fave c
Way too many ads now. Loved Pinterest before it was flooded with ads. Find myself opening Pinterest less and less.
It’s broken 3/5
For some reason it randomly crashes
By Camión mágico
I do not like the new system. Have stopped using it
Old Pinterest was better. 2/5
Lately there are so many advertisements for other things disguised as pins I don’t want to be on the app unless I have to. I don’t enjoy being on the app anymore. Or there are ads completely unrelated like for ballet and fashion in a vegan food search when I don’t even look up fashion. It’s very annoying. Two of three per page is okay but it’s about every other pin is an advertisement.
Crashes often 3/5
My Pinterest app crashes/freezes almost every time I follow a board and click return. Too much hassle when I try to message app support.

If it’s not broke then don’t fix it 1/5
Sometimes updates are better but this is NOT the case. Where did the explore option go?? The only content I can see is the main feed that is bombarded by things I don’t even like and ads. Without the explore option the only thing to do is search. I can no longer look through a category. I also agree with the other reviews with their concerns about porn. I have also been searching through normal boards and be whiplashed by porn that shouldn’t even be on Pinterest. If you are going to be an app of porn and filth then at least let me have categories back.
Pinterest it! 5/5
Censorship on Pinterest 1/5
It is very sad to see such censorship on Pinterest. In a world with so much valuable information to be shared, Pinterest is devaluing itself by becoming a very biased platform. Not only is Pinterest completely unorganized, where pins and links lead to nowhere or expired webpages, promoting hatred and bullying through troll sites, they are also harming themselves by limiting members to information on active, factual topics regarding good health, truth and well being.
Andre Waters 5/5
The update made the app more confusing and hard to use. Before, a picture of your saved pin would appear above the boards of people who saved your pin. Now only the boards appear. So you don’t know which of your pins were saved! Very confusing.
I love Pinterest! The app works well and smoothly. The only issue is that sometimes it displays the same picture multiple times, which is kind of annoying.
Beyound awful 1/5
Stop screwing it up
By Abagail #PopularAwesomeKid
Dear Newsies in Pinterest,
This app is THE BEST! It is not a game, newsies, just sayin’. Playing the quizzes is my personal favorite thing to do on Pinterest. You can find everything from Actors to Zebras! Here are my Top 10 things to do in Pinterest:
8) Look for great things to shop for... even sometimes the weirdest stuff :p
7) Find the latest fashions
6) Look for good movies for family movie night
5) Catch up on my fave Netflix shows
4) Funny Photos
Every time it updates, I like it even less. 2/5
I’ve had a Pinterest since 2012, and I can honestly say I hate it just a tiny bit more with each new update. Previous formats allowed me to browse and follow exactly the type of content I wanted; I used to spend hours exploring. Now the content from my followers is the only thing that interests me, because the suggestions (that make up the entire homepage) are EXTREMELY repetitive and the format makes it hard to browse if you don’t know what you’re looking for. It only suggests specific -ultimately too narrow usually-searches, not broad categories. PUT BACK THE OLD CATEGORIES at the very least. It hasn’t been fun in a while.
Cookie Monster 5/5
This app is great for parents and kids when they need help with school work or the parents/adults can find how to do hair , make food, and make customs. For sure get it!
Very Glitchy 4/5
I have had to delete this app at least several times a week. At times there are changes on my pins that I did not make and I changed my password to resolve. When I repin pins they are “spammy” at times making the board I pinned the pin to to totally disappear. When this happened (today), I attempted to change my password and it would not allow me too. My next step was to delete the app once again and it took me five minutes to delete it. The app would move from page to page on my apps screen when I would attempt to click on it. I also have not been notified of any updates for this app in the App Store, I just constantly delete it and it works well for a period of time. There are times when my boards will only show one pin when in actuality there are hundreds of pins that were pinned to the board. When I go to click on the board the pins will reappear. Please fix and make your app more secure.
UGH NOT HAPPY 1/5
I cannot use the app! I downloaded it after having months away from it and right back to the same problem . I have 4G LTE , WiFi but it says no connection to google or the internet . Will not let me sign in . When I was signed in it wouldn’t let me see anything , it was blank !!!!! Frustrated and I really miss using Pinterest 😭 what the heck guys !
I enjoy all the pins, absolutely awesome.
So 👏🏼 many 👏🏼 ads👏🏼 2/5
Good grief. In a block of 10 pins, 4-5 of them are ads. That’s insane
For months when I try to sign in to my app it says I appear to be off line. I wish I never used this. It’s so hard for me to get to my saves it takes all the joy away.
Different interests 5/5
I enjoy I can find anything I am interested in and look at other people’s ideas
With every upgrade this app gets worse 2/5
How is one suppose to see their activity of pins others have pinned when you no longer show the individual pin? Why would you change that feature? Why do we no longer see how many people have pinned their pin? I could go on and on since I’ve been using this app for 6 years....I’ve seen all the downgrades that have been made. This app was so much better 2 years ago!!
Old Pinterest Was Way Better 2/5
I wrote a review before, but they did more updates so once again: the last 6 or so updates from Pinterest have made mobile usage worse and overall difficult to interpret and use. I can no longer tell who is following which of my boards, what pins of mine are popular/being saved, and searching for boards is increasingly difficult. I hope that Pinterest actually reads these reviews and listens to its mobile users, because it seems the majority enjoy Pinterest but prefer previous versions of the app.
I am happy 5/5

I love Pinterest so much
PINTEREST..... PRAISE.......... 5/5
By Patricia N........
Pinterest is a Fabulous SITE. I think it is the BEST!!! !!!!!!
Love love love 5/5
By Hollie H.
Pinterest is my go to for everything!!! You can find just about everything you want. The only thing that should be added is an option to add a folder or board within a board. For example, you could have a science board and within the board have a weather board, chemical reactions, etc. Just a thought! I still love everything about the app
This app is awful. 1/5
I hate that Pinterest removed the explore tab. I used Pinterest to scroll through different categories, not to only see what the people I’m following are posting. I also hate that when you try to search for new pins it shows the same pins every time. I miss the old Pinterest. Bring back the categories!!!!
BRING BACK THE EXPLORE TAB PLEASE!!! 2/5
By Neeto groovy rad
Please bring back the categories!!!,
Needs work 2/5
Good app, but there is so much pornography! There needs to be a way to ensure parents can keep children from searching for inappropriate pictures. I'm about to get rid of the app if we don't see this future soon. Pinterest, please protect our children!
Major issue 3/5
By Tobie Keith
Am I the only one who can’t see what pins of theirs are being repined? Fix this issue please...
I am not able to look on my Pinterest without having a phone number and I really want to look at it but I can’t because I don’t have a phone number do you need Wi-Fi to make an update so that we can do it off-line for free until then I’m not gonna like your pictures company
Pinterest is so cute! It gives me so many cute ideas for my room and my style. Definitely where I will always go for inspiration
Best app ever ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
By Sherry Wright-Gully
Pinterest was amazing when I first discovered it but with the changes I don’t enjoy it anymore and probably won’t use it much in the future if at all.
I admire this app for various reasons 5/5
This app always fulfill my demands that much couldn’t deny..
Love the app but kills my battery 3/5
I love Pinterest and use it all the time for ideas and memes. But it KILLS my phone battery. Even with background refresh and cellular data usage off, it will take my (still pretty new) iPhone from 100 to 30% in under an hour and that is unacceptable.
Can we please go back to the old update it’s really hard to upload pins!! 1/5
