Pinterest for Negative User Reviews

I love Pinterest but i HATE the new stories updateIve been using pinterest for years and despite a few changes (moving the download button), it has been pretty consistently good good unlike a lot of other social media sites. However, this new stories type update is terrible. Firstly, its confusing and uneeded. Everyone who Ive talked to about it has said they dont like it. But the worst part is every time i click on something it ends up being one of the those story things and not a photo and its so frustrating. There’s no way to download it and every time i tap any where it changes the image and i get stuck in the story. I just want to be able to download photos. No one asked for this and no one wants this please, id love to put my review back to 5 stars but not if it stays like this. EDIT: they made another really stupid update. why would you remove the option to download a photo unless its you have it pinned/saved?? it literally makes no sense i can guarantee not one single person was asking for this and is just incredibly inconvenient. So now i guess i gave to make a board just to save all the photos i want to download which is so incredibly annoying. I’m seriously considering downloading weheartit or tumblr because pinterest is slowly becoming one of the annoying social medias. Incredibly disappointed..Version: 9.33

What happened?Every update I get so disappointed. Ever since the try feature got removed Pinterest has been getting worse and worse. Notice how the good reviews only are from years ago, when it didn’t go downhill.Version: 10.8

The Algorithms Have Really Gone DownhillI have used Pinterest for over ten years. I have loved this app/website. There is nothing else like it. Over the last couple of years, though, my feed quality has really suffered. I used to see new pins based on every one of my interests, which I had carefully cultivated. I could go months without seeing the same pin twice, and my feed was full of variety and color. Now, my feed seems to be based only on recent activity, so if I only pin to three boards over a few days or a week, I will only see content related to those three boards with maybe 1/20 being outside of those topics. If I only pin from my home feed, that means that I’m reinforcing this funnel until my home feed looks the same every single day. If I pass over a pin without saving it, it can show up in my feed again and again, making things feel stale. I’ll also see pins related to topics I don’t like, but even though I hide it, that topic will show up in my feed again and again as if I had never touched it. Also, when I do a search I’ll only get a few pages’ worth of related pins before it starts looking like my home feed, with results that have nothing to do with what I’m searching for. I still use the app because there’s no other available resource like it, but it’s no longer my favorite place for inspiration..Version: 7.21

Bev D.My daughter got me started on Pintrest! It is an awesome program! Breakfast and Pintrest - doesn't get any better! Now I find so many pins with advice for things that I have absolutely no interest in, continually over and over again.Version: 6.34.1

Nice app with frustrating bugs/featuresContent is lovely, Pinterest is good at recommending stuff I like. I also enjoy that images can have any dimensions. But there’s a few issues that drive me crazy. 1. The comments. Sometimes there’s ones missing, sometimes it says there’s comments but none show up, sometimes you can’t click on replies. I’m not sure how but it never works completely. Just spent 20 minutes trying to post 4 replies and failed, so I’m a bit frustrated. 2. Zooming in on an image is very difficult, since it opens “more like this” which covers about a third of the screen. You can’t even scroll down to the bottom of the image without having to keep your finger on the screen so it doesn’t get covered by More Like This again. 3. The visual search button on the bottom right that sometimes covers content there the bottom, you can zoom in to read text underneath the white magnifying glass, but then you gotta deal with the More Like This pop up. 4. Personal preference, but I don’t like the story format that automatically switches image, I can never read/look at everything in the image before it already moves on to the next, so I have to click to go back constantly. As far as I know there’s no way to block that form of content..Version: 9.34

Used to be great but now...Pinterest is no longer geared towards the fun, interest-driven collector and fantasist; rather it is becoming more and more tailored to be a selling tool. My board is full, and I mean FULL, of images of zero interest on subjects that have zero appeal. I have spent hours trying to hide them but this just seems to encourage more of the same as though Pinterest thinks it just needs to try harder to persuade me. The result? Zero inclination to log in. For example, I am an avid lover of big, shiny diamonds, antiques and period homes. Conversely, I loathe emeralds, flat-pack furniture and minimalism. What do I get in my daily feed? The latter. Also, being a childless woman of over fifty and in a wheelchair, I have little desire to be inundated by jean-clad, bare-midriff girls (why the widely spread legs, by the way), superhero themed party games for teeny tots or by pretty walking tours. So, I spend ages hiding each and every one in order to 'train' my daily feed only for even more of the same the next time I log in. (And why oh why did they add the skull jewellery? Punishment?) Which, of course, is tres annoying and now instead of wiling away three days at a stretch fantasising myself into another world, I shut off the tablet and have to put up with the one I’m in. So, come on Pinterest, stop trying so hard to sell to us and go back to entertaining us instead. I liked you then..Version: 6.62

Love the app but there’s a problemI love the app but recently when I go into the app the screen turns white or black completely and stays like that and I have to restart it/clear the app and also somethings when it does occasionally work when I stop at a page ex. When I want to read something it freezes and I have to clear the app again until it works rarely..Version: 6.43

This used to be my favorite app!Like the title says, I absolutely loved the old Pinterest. The update last year maybe made it a whole lot harder to navigate. I was accustomed to searching for boards so that I could easily follow other people who shared my very specific interests, but now that option has been gone for months! I’ve been meaning to write this review since then, but this newest update from a few days ago expedited it. Another of my main issues is the shopping aspect. In the older versions, it was more geared to crafting/diy/budget ideas. Now, I search for something simple like knitting ideas, and all I get back are shopping suggestions and priced items for sale. And there’s even a shopping section! I understand the need to evolve and bring in new demographics, but I feel that a lot of Pinterest’s original draw and identity has disappeared. Now, it behaves more like an Instagram or Facebook feed, filled with advertisements and shopping. It’s very disappointing to me that Pinterest has become so much like all the other dime-a-dozen social media apps and sites, since I initially fell in love with it years before because it avoided that world I hated. It felt quiet, calm, secluded, like a library or a yarn store, and I could do my own thing with topics I loved across the “board.” I am really, really bummed about all the changes and am considering deleting, which would be a major change. Please, please bring back some of the original features!.Version: 9.23

Keeps crashingI’ve been using Pinterest for a while, but recently every time I open the app— within a second it’d crash. I tried everything. I restarted my device and even deleted Pinterest and downloaded it again, but to no avail, it still crashes..Version: 8.12

Not like it used to beI have been a Pinterest user for many years, but of late, it’s becoming less functional and I don’t open it as often as I used to. I am an elderly male and I see pictures of objects and people for which I have absolutely no interest but I can’t get rid of them. I see For You pages of nonsense and pop up notifications about female fashion and cosmetics, for example. I tag these as irrelevant but I can’t kill off Updates I’m not remotely interested in, such as Blouse Designs. Ideas for you is another load of nonsense. I have no problem with these categories. I just want to be able to delete the ones I never asked for, or those for which I have no further interest.Version: 9.8

Bring back boardsYou can’t search for boards anymore and it’s getting ridiculous. a while ago the ability to see what board something was being saved to was being removed, but for me, this new update is the last straw. that used to be the one feature i absolutely RELIED on for pinterest, and now it’s gone. on top of that, i don’t like how the new update changed the interface for pinning a pin to a board. it makes it nearly impossible to pin things. if things seriously don’t change and this app goes back to being more practical, i’m going to have to stop using it because it is far to frustrating. which is incredibly unfortunate because i’ve loved pinterest for years..Version: 8.44

Lost its individuality.I always loved Pinterest since 2014 when I was 14 and I’m 21 now. Since then I’ve considered it a ‘safe place’ free from ads and the traps of marketing where I could gather ideas and get creative without the pressure of social media. I have never made a review, but this app is just too close to my heart and it hurts to see it fall down. Recently, it’s just the same as other platforms. I can now rarely find a good recipe or a creative outfit. Every other pic is an advertisement for a waist trainer or TikTok influencers. I wouldn’t mind too much if it was less frequent like it was before but now it’s every other pin. It’s distracting to the point where I can’t find any good pins. Instead of it being a curative list of pins in your style, it’s tiktoks of influencers showing you the most recent trends. I can now barely find any pins that appeal to my style. It’s all those short videos or tiktoks that are just ads. The videos distract from the picture pins so I end up not seeing what I came to Pinterest for. It’s an ad fest just like Instagram and TikTok where the strategy is to get you hooked on watching those short useless videos for hours. I deleted TikTok and Instagram for a reason, and now all apps are turning into it. Pinterest has almost completely lost its individuality and I’m sure it’s just downhill from here. It’s a shame, but if it continues this way I’ll be forced to get off of it..Version: 9.38

Why does it cover selected images with other, smaller images?I get that Pinterest is meant to curate images based on images I've looked at, but why is it now covering images I'm looking at with other images a bit similar to the one I'm specifically trying to look at while I'm still in the process of trying to look at it? Surely the whole point of selecting an image to look at is to actually look at it? - Not to have it partially obliterated by other images? If you've ever been to an art gallery or looked through a photo album, the optimum way to take in & appreciate an image is by *not* covering bits of it with other stuff. People who have been to the Louvre in Paris say that viewing the Mona Lisa is ruined by the fact that there are other people constantly getting in the way. This recent update guarantees that things are getting in the way..Version: 6.41.1

Not happyWhen my app was updated I could no longer get into my account. I still can’t despite asking for help. FAQ lists do not help, they are just irritating and never seem to answer my questions satisfactorily. I set up a new account, thinking my old account was lost forever; then on another device I found my old account but noticed it still had my old email address on it. I tried to change the email address only to be told that my email address was already in use. Of course it was, I had opened another account when the first one ceased to work! So now I have an old account I can’t use because it has the wrong email address attached to it and a new account with only one board on it!.Version: 6.47

Worst update everWhy tf y'all take away the individual sections for boards bro add them back plz 😫🙏.Version: 9.38

I hate ideal pinsAs a ehm "content creator" ideal pins are horrible. they don't fit with my older videos in my boards and they look weird. I can't add personalized tags and they don't get nearly as many views as my older videos posted before the update... stop trying to be the dollar store tiktok, be pinterest again please..Version: 10.3

INDIVIDUAL SECTIONSI promise you no one cares about Pinterest watch. Why can’t apps just do what they do best instead of forcing us all to use the same apps all day long it’s ridiculous! You should move or get rid of Pinterest Watch and bring back individual sections and get rid of the loud video ads! What was wrong with photo ads??? Why are you doing this to your app?? What is wrong?.Version: 9.39.1

End your soundless testingPlease hear out the complains, they're valid. The Pinterest Team recently forced a "new feature" on their users (which everyone absolutely loathes) and it's made using the app a real pain. It's an automatic save to a ghost board called "Profile", and to put pins in the boards you want them in, you have to go ahead and resave them once you find out where this board is. Online forums and their email support's inbox are full of complains, and still they refuse to give us an option out of their feature testing. The issue is they added more unnecessary steps to saving pins into the boards you want them in, and every time you try to delete this "quick save/profile" board, it magically reappears. If it were an option, it'd be fine. But it's not, now you have to go through these extra steps for EVERY PIN, and it's unavoidable. Many users are already talking about giving up the app, and they will unless Pinterest regains its senses and offers an option out. Then it would be actual testing, and you'd get a sound statistic of whether it's a necessary and/or appealing feature. Otherwise, Pinterest's great days are long behind them. Tic-toc..Version: 9.23

I’m being realI hate your app if I could actually rate this it would be 2 in a half or 1 your lucky one app is so unorganised it’s a mess 2 your updates how can I say this ...it’s crap 😃 3 I’m in your website and it lectures me and I’m sure everyone else into buying this stupid app like it’s basically not a choice to download this you wanna read something the website be like (download are trash app) the app is probably like “like you have a choice or something” like stop advising your app cuz you not gonna get nothing from me maybe if you would let me do my thin and let everyone else do the same thing people would actually care about your trash app you even call a five star rating cuz it’s actually not there said it hide my comment idc cuz it’s what everyone else has to say..Version: 8.32.1

Good in the past, but terrible updates!I have been using the Pinterest app for years now, and these updates may be terrible enough for me to finally leave. First of all, the stories/slides function is confusing and difficult to use. If I’m ever swiping through content it’s a hassle to get through these stories that often have nothing to do with what I’ve pinned in the past, which brings me to my next point: the algorithm. I am constantly getting both suggested pins and targeted ads that have nothing to do with any boards or searches I’ve made! My home feed is full of ads that I am not interested in with very little actual content, much of which is irrelevant as well. It seems like the “hide pin” feature doesn’t even do anything to improve my feed. To me, it seems like Pinterest is struggling to remain relevant in the wake of Instagram and TikTok by introducing new features and changing up how content reaches viewers, but I think I speak for the majority of Pinterest users when I say that people don’t use Pinterest in the same way we use other platforms. There’s no need for flash and flair when Pinterest is already a well-designed social media platform with a specific user base in mind, and making these changes just interrupts the way people use the app..Version: 9.16

AI algorithm has gotten worse with age & far too many adsI’ve had the app for years now and a couple years ago it was perfect, easily my favourite app. The content was rich and the tailoring algorithm was very accurate, providing me with a great feed. Now, I am flooded with advertisements and less relevant content that I begin to think, is this just another social media platform? Traditionally, I set Pinterest apart from Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. but now I feel it’s just the same. Please restrict the amount of advertisements you allow and make the content relate to the searches within the app (not the data from the entire phone). There is such hype around AI and how it can be beneficial to businesses but, in this instance, its completely ruining, what was, an amazing platform. It’s 2019, you’re meant to prioritise customer centricity..Version: 7.0

Fix the quick save- for the love of godUsed to be perfect until the update which removed the "top choices" section. Now the app is so inefficient it's almost unbearable. Really takes the joy out of using this app and I can't see myself using it much longer if it doesn't get fixed. The great thing about this app used to be how intuitive and easy it was. Now the update has taken away both of those things- might as well just save things to my computer files and drop the app entirely..Version: 10.3

Latest changesNot happy with the latest changes - can’t edit URLs on my pins, that’s been taken away completely - you can only change them if they are from your own claimed website. Not everyone has their own website. So not practical to take this feature away! When I first started using Pinterest it was so diverse and would spend hours looking at and pinning various ideas. Now it seems to trap users in their own filter bubbles, where you are constantly looking at the same sort of pins you’ve already pinned - yeah some of that is ok in a tiny smidge of quantity but not ALL the pins ALL the time. The idea is to get inspiration and ideas for things you may not have even thought about - that was the beauty of it! That’s why the category options on the home search was great too. Do the people who make these changes even actually consult those who do or use it themselves?.Version: 7.11

Is there a reason why y’all decided to become tiktokI miss having the sections to browse my other boards. having a main page and a watch page is not fun! also bring back photo comments weirdos ! not everyone needs to b tik tok! stay in ur lane!.Version: 9.34

Where’s the likes?Can y’all please put the likes back on the comments.Version: 8.39

Individual sectionsPLEASE, I’m telling you PLEASE BRING BACK INDIVIDUAL SECTIONS.Version: 9.39.1

I Hate Idea Pins.I have loved pinterest for years and use it almost every day. I enjoy that it is more simple and unique and doesn't have updated features every few weeks trying to compete with all the other social apps. However, I absolutely hate the new idea pins. If I wanted to group pins together I would put them in a board or a section of a board - I don't see the need for idea pins. They are pretty much all I am seeing in my 'more ideas' and 'posts like this' sections and it's really turning me off the app. I wish you could filter searches to just show photos/idea pins/video etc and turn off idea pins coming up in your suggestions. I often see a single photo that I would like to save in amongst an idea pin but i dont want to save all the photos so I have to just scroll away and hope I see that photo again one day to save it layer...I just dont get it and it clogs up my feed. Also please bring back the ability to search for boards by name on the app, it is still a feature for desktops and I wish they kept it on apps too..Version: 9.29

Please make it so we can download the images directlyI absolutely despise whatever you did to that download option. Now we have to save it to a pin and then download it. I’m quitting this app and tell my mom, my dad, my sister, my brother, my grandmother, my grandfather, my son, my daughter, my wife, my cousin, my aunt, my uncle, and my friends to quit this app. Fix it now or wait there will be consequences..Version: 9.33

Bring back the option to search boardsThe option of searching for boards rather than individual pins is gone, and it was so useful.Version: 9.10

Seems to repeat itself too muchI used to have pins on different subjects which made it so interesting. Now, if I search for a chocolate cake recipe or a sweater pattern, all the pins I receive are related to these two searches. It is not as varied as it used to be and it is disappointing. The algorithm don’t have much imagination..Version: 10.9

Always Crashes!I use Pinterest lots, even though over the years it seems to get worse honestly :( There are ads everywhere, and every time I’m on the app for more than 10 minutes it will crash and I have to reopen it. I keep making sure that it’s updated and everything, so I really don’t understand why it keeps doing this. I don’t see any reviews about it though, am I the only one who’s getting this??.Version: 8.3.1

The ads man...Y’all really need to chill on the ads. I can’t even listen to music while in the app anymore😭.Version: 9.27

Pinterest once had five starsI enjoy using Pinterest, it's a great way to be inspired. However I prefer how it used to be. I have become used to the changes on the main feed and the people you follow as two different tabs, but please bring back the topic/category menu! It made searching and discovering way more fun!.Version: 7.0

Self promosI’ve really been enjoying Pinterest for the past few months. It’s a nice way to pass the time, and I’ve tried a few ideas on there - mainly baking using recipes found on the app. However, I seem to get a lot of irrelevant ads that I keep trying to tailor without much luck. The most annoying thing of all? ... “Hey guys I know self promos are annoying but I’ve been working really hard on my boards pls if you like this aesthetic check out my account it would mean so much to me to get to 100 followers by December!!” PLEASE there has to be way to filter these comments?! I see them on nearly every pin I look at and it’s putting me off using Pinterest. It’s not small businesses advertising themselves or anything useful, just bratty little teenagers who feel they deserve their ego stroked by racking up followers. It’s spam and I’m fed up with seeing it. Ta x.Version: 8.40

Some major downgrades, regularly changesLate Feb 2022 edit: Grids in home feed are back on mobile which is great! Thank you. However, as long-time user, I really hope Pinterest brings back the Following feed. What’s the point of following profiles where you’re only functionally subscribed to their “stories”? / 2021 Review: Pinterest, I’ve loved you for many, many years but…what are you doing? First, you went all ~Insta~ mimicking their following feed without any option to back to the classic grids which used to be a well-loved distinct feature to now completely killing the following feed on the mobile app. You even killed the curated ideas feed based on our active boards which was at least quite useful. Stay you, please, or there’s little to no point in using Pinterest if you’re gonna try to look like other apps, especially when Instagram now has Collections..Version: 10.5

☹️Bring the download button back😕💔💔.Version: 9.34

Rubbish update :(Loved the old homepage lay out seeing loads of ideas at once! The new one image lay out is barely different to instagrams and it now feels much more like a social media app than a project or ideas or arty kind of app. My homepage has a lot of images on that weren’t that interesting so this new lay out also doesn’t allow me to sift through the stuff I’m not overly bothered about! I loved Pinterest for the reasons of that it didn’t feel like a social media site and was so different to every other app, it felt much more personal and obviously creatively inspired and motivated ,so it makes no sense to change it so it is similar to other apps already out there ????!!! This is super disappointing, I’m quite angry to be honest and it’s safe to say I won’t be using it anywhere near as much as I used to..Version: 7.30

Glitches GaloreThis latest version has a lot of glitches attached to it. I will search something and be scrolling for a little bit and then suddenly it will glitches and the screen will go white and stay like it unless I exit the app, and then I have to search the same thing g all over again and find where I was up to just for it to do it again. Another glitch I’ve found is I used to be able to search something quickly jump over to another app and back again and my searched pictures would still be there, now I do it and it goes back to home screen. Which is annoying especially when I’m looking at a specific photo..Version: 7.0

StopBring back the individual sections to pin rn.Version: 9.39.1

Have I reached the end of Pinterest?I think I've reached the end of Pinterest! I keep seeing the same content over and over again. I only follow around 3000 people's Ms follow more every week. I have 9000 followers--which my number of followers slowed down significantly when they changed the feeds and algorithms. I can no longer see the people who follow me--even though my number of followers go up, it's no longer adding profiles to the followers section. I am so sick of seeing advertisements and sponsored content that have NOTHING to do with anything that I would ever want to see from Home Depot (I think we all kinda know about Home Depot at this point) to Pantene hair commercials. The settings for automatic video play do not work. And dare I use the "show me more like this button"; CLEARLY Pinterest's taste level has a bug since it usually looks NOTHING like what I've just pinned. I preferred the only method of see who else has pinned this pinned so that you could start following others with your same taste level and subject matter. Pinterest has become almost as bad as Houzz for the masses and has become very hard to curate sophisticated collections of idea boards. I use Pinterest to work with my clients and promote my business. There are very few settings that you can change and I am so tired of seeing the same content over and over again! Oh wait, I already said that--well now you know how it feels!.Version: 6.36

STOP refreshing!There is literally nothing I hate more about this app than the fact that if I conduct a search or look at my pins, regardless of where I am on the home page, it will refresh. I should only get refreshed, new pin suggestions if I refresh manually. Otherwise I’ve lost numerous potential pins because this app believes that every time I leave the app or leave the apps main page I want to refresh my pins. This is the single most annoying part of this app by far..Version: 8.15

Board search function ?I loved this app and used to use it all the time, but i’ve noticed that when you go to use the search function, you can no longer search for boards with what you’ve searched, only see the pins that come up with the result. this sucks and for me, defeats the purpose of the app because that was how i used it, looking at other people’s boards. i keep thinking this is a bug, because you used to be able to select “boards” to search, but update after update, this feature doesn’t come back. it’s very frustrating and making me kind of hate this app because i can barely search for things efficiently..Version: 8.44

Ableist aba adsTheres ads for aba, an abusive "therapy" for autistic kids. please pintrest stop accepting these ads, you're promoting abuse and traumatizing children -an autistic person.Version: 9.39.1

I have been faithful but you have hurt my feelings.Recently I got an email to say that a comment I had made on a pin was considered harassment and had been removed. I was warned about it again. I cannot recall ever intentionally harassing anyone and if someone took offence at something I said, at least I should be able to see the pin in question so that I can decide if my comment is truly mean or just someone being overly sensitive. I have been on P since the beginning but I feel like quitting after this. Also you say your policy is against nudity etc. But it is riddled with it. So maybe before I get attacked get breaching the policy, you should just have a look at others who do as well. I have reported several blatantly sexual / nude pics tonight. There are far too many to report them all. A couple I saw border onto Child Exploitation.Version: 6.60

Don’t waste your time like I didI’ve spent an uncountable amount of hours making Pinterest boards for school projects and out of spare time interest. Tonight out of nowhere I lost 2 massive boards with 500+ images on each. In total, over 1,000 of my images have completely and utterly vanished from nowhere. The help centre doesn’t provide any beneficial advice. You can’t even email them because you literately have to re-login in like 3 times and it freezes. Bare in mind I have an iPhone 8+ which is running on the current iOS. I’ve currently spent and hour trying to fix this and reddit can’t even help me out. Don’t put time, effort and care into this app. You will only experience a bitter taste when your work disappears without reason..Version: 6.68

Half the time, it doesn’t work!Whether it’s on chrome mobile, chrome desktop, or either app, after pinning a bunch of pins, it simply stops working. I’ve cleared cashe, logged out, logged back in. After a while it will say “oops, you’ve been logging in a lot. Either wait 30 minutes or log in with Facebook or google.” It’s ridiculous! If I want to pin 100 times, why won’t it let me? I’ve seriously spent two days trying to pin 150 pins. I’ve only been able to pin 97. It’s like it doesn’t want you to use it or something! I agree with everything admod08 said in her “so sick of it” review. While browsing pics in chrome or safari, if you tap on the photo that is on Pinterest, it forces you to download the app. Then when you want to go back to the photos you were looking at, Pinterest takes you to the home page. I’ve gotten to the point where if I see a pic that says it’s on Pinterest, I just look over it and find a different pic. I hate how Pinterest has completely taken over everything. We have no control. It’s not very user friendly. You want to go to the website where the pic is, and it’s so hard to figure out what to tap, that half the time I can’t find the website. It takes me to other pins or to the homepage of the person who pinned it. I just want to go to the bloody website where the original pic is!.Version: 9.28.1

Can’t save things to boards like you used toI love using Pinterest as a way to relax but the new update really annoyed me because now it doesn’t let me save things off the bat to specific boards anymore and it instead creates a longer and more annoying process of sorting everything in to their individual boards. Really wish this wasn’t a thing and that you’d change it back 😕.Version: 10.2

Love it! However...I am completely in love with Pinterest. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t spend at least an hour or two scrolling through pins. However I and some of my friends are experiencing some problems, like not being able to send messages to each other directly in the inbox. And it seems we can’t send each other more than one pin within a span of 30 seconds because a notification pops up saying it’s trying to “combat spam” even though my friends and I are TRYING to spam each other with pins that we would absolutely love. I don’t know whether this is a bug problem in terms being unable to send each other message within the inbox section, but it would be very much appreciated if you would please look into these 2 issues so I and many of friends and other people can have the ultimate Pinterest experience. Thank you (:.Version: 6.41.1

Ads, Ads, Ads, and no longer descriptions.I love Pinterest. It’s amazing. Such a fantastic idea. The app however is annoying. It used to be amazing. Now it’s all Ads and there are no longer descriptions for the Pins, so you have to click on them, rather then just scrolling through. I used to spend my evenings finding awesome ideas. Now I can’t be bothered even looking at it because of all the junk..Version: iOS 6.67

Please let me upload multiple pinsI just find it really slow when I’m trying to upload multiple pins I have on my phone to upload onto Pinterest. Like even if it’s you can only upload 20 at a time would be a blessing. Thank you.Version: 7.27

What have you done?Oh dear, Pinterest. What have you done? I used to spend hours scrolling through Pinterest. It was my favourite app on my phone. Now I barely bother to look at it. My feed consists of adverts and pins that I’m no longer interested in. I used to love that I could browse through different categories - where’s that gone? How can I find inspiration when there’s nowhere to look? I loved looking at the humour section and used to chuckle away all evening but since the adverts were introduce there was nothing worth seeing. The same with the quotations section. I always used to find something that resonated with me and then suddenly it was full of banal rubbish with hardly a decent quote in sight. Pinterest used to help me find trends for my business too - you could see how many times an item was pinned or liked (don’t even get me started on how the ‘like’ button disappeared. Sack the person who implemented that) but even that’s gone now. Come on Team Pinterest, get your act together. It was a great app. You need to make it great again.Version: 6.58

All the descriptions and tags are invisible in the appI rely on the descriptions and visible tags to know what my pins and others' pins are about and that's gone from the app. This makes all the pins useless to me because I can't see what the images are - they are just a group of images that I can't use. Can you PLEASE put the descriptions back and allow users to increase the area of text that's visible? Even on the desktop version most of the description is not visible on the board so I can't see what I need to make the item of the image at a glance. Please allow users to make choices and stop taking away the things that make Pinterest relevant and useful. And the constant updating and the lack of any HELP for info on using the app or registering any complaints or feedback in the app is annoying. Please fix the app so we can see what we’ve put as descriptions - five pictures of similar things are NOT worth 5000 words, the words are necessary to work out what the pins are. And allow help and feedback within the app..Version: 8.19.1

Stop changing everythingPinterest used to be my favourite app. now you can't even search for other users boards. half of the pins on my feed are ads and they always play super loud. it seems like it gets worse with every update.Version: 9.39.1

Great app when it worksAfter being an avid user for years, this week I’ve experienced the lack of support Pinterest offers. I cannot upload to Pinterest and the help options are irrelevant so no help from the help centre. I’ve deleted and redownloaded 3 times, Ive checked settings etc etc etc and without any way of asking the right question I’m left frustrated and without any resolution. A thumbs down from me. ☹️.Version: 6.44.1

Cannot save to boardsThe quick save feature sounds good in theory, but it literally will not let me pin something to a board. it’s super frustrating and i can’t use the app because of it.Version: 10.9

Disappointed with moves away from original productPinterest continues to make more changes that move the app further and further away from why I use it: to find, save, and share ideas. I finally decided to write this review because the primary “+” button now isn’t for pins but for Instragram-like “stories”. Now you have to hunt to find the right “+” button under profile to add a pin from a website. Additionally, users no longer have control to edit the title and description of pins. Just notes to self or comments. I used to use this heavily for describing my modifications to recipes or notes on what I’d like to do on a particular project with my wife. The loss of control is frustrating. Lastly, Instagram’s approach to advertisements is anti-customer. I understand the need to monetize, but PLEASE don’t make the interaction so challenging that it “traps” your users in the ad. Two examples of this: 1) you can’t swipe down to dismiss an ad like you do any other pin - you have to reach up to the top-left of your screen and tap on the small back arrow, and 2) swiping up opens the ad instead of showing similar content - so then you have to tap “done” and the back arrow to get back to normal content. Instead, you should make the interaction/navigation similar to all other content. Your ads are “landmines” and I get so frustrated when I tap on one. Doesn’t have to be that way..Version: 9.34

Stop making unnecessary changes!Stop taking out features people actually enjoy and fix the bugs that have a continuous presence throughout the app. Do better..Version: 10.8

PinterestOn the whole ,ok, but don’t like it bouncing away from pins I am just trying to capture. Love the picture view, have bought stuff just on great photo looks, but having some issues with setting up my own business account. And some stores seem to overwhelm users with their multiple ads / pins. However, biggest issue I have is while trying to set up business acct, it gives instructions to add metatag and html file, but the instructions when followed lead to message bar and external contacts only. Tried so many times that I finally deleted app and tried to reload it but Pinterest says my business email is taken by another user. THAT’S ME! Logging in from web browser gets me nowhere useful, so please contact me and sort this out, it is driving me crazy..Version: 7.4.1

Very disappointed with the latest updatesI was a very early user of Pinterest and have loved it for years using it as a great source of inspiration, resources and collection for ideas for my many interests. However the latest update with trying to use sections within a board are absolutely useless. One can spend ages ticking the pictures to move to a new section, only to find that the pictures have not moved and lo and behold one has to move the pictures again after ticking them again to move to the new section and finding the board from the alphabetical list! I have no idea why this new idea was implemented because it is absolutely useless. I like the idea of having subsections within a board so I could create smaller areas of interest but going back over a previous board that has been started has become a time-consuming task. Pinterest please fix this up ASAP!! Or you will have more disgruntled users..Version: 7.3

Ads silence other audioI go onto Pinterest to look for ideas, a nice pastime while listening to podcasts or music. Haven’t been on in a while and now I’ve noticed a disappointing change: every time there’s an ad, or anything with video even if there’s no sound, the app silences my other audio. This is really frustrating as it can happen several times a minute if I’m scrolling (sometimes needing to switch back into my podcast app to get to play again). I’m ok with ads, I get it, but sound overriding my other audio? Major turn off. I’m going to Pinterest for creative visual content and as something different to other social media apps. I like the app, but I’ll be avoiding it from now on..Version: 9.29

WHAT WAS THE REASON!!???I usually love Pinterest but the new update that takes away the refined search button makes the app intolerable to use. I really cannot even begin to fathom why they would possibly take away such a good and widely used/loved feature?? Like what would possibly be the benefit? I tried to look for a more direct way to give feedback on this, because I honestly doubt the people who are making these choices care to read an App Store review, or care at all if the recent updates are anything to go by - but I came up short so this will have to do. But I am BEGGING you to put that feature back for the sake of mental wellbeing. 2020 has me walking a very fine like and I clearly don’t have the emotional maturity to deal with this ridiculous change right now. PLEASE put it back..Version: 8.44

Bring back “Search By Board”!!I’ve used Pinterest for years and love the ability to be able find ideas & inspiration! I mainly use the mobile version of Pinterest because of how smooth and effortless it is (along with the fact I’m always on my phone!) and I find that just searching for terms doesn’t yield varied results, so about 90% of my time I search things and select “view by board” to browse the collections other people have made! Being able to see other people’s “finds” or their own uploads is a perfect way to fill up my own boards. If I wanted to search for a certain aesthetic or look for certain types of recipes for example, how else would I find good boards to follow so that I can see their posts in my feed? However, when I last updated it, the feature that allowed us to search by board on mobile is gone!! I can’t even hit a picture and be able to trace it to the boards it shows up on. All the pins on my main feed I can’t even see where they came from. I expand my results not by hoping Pinterest’s own algorithms pick up what they think I want to see, but by what boards and pinners I follow!! Please bring this back! The fun of Pinterest is in cultivating all kinds of resources or pictures in one place, what good is that if I can’t even have the option to view the ones others have made?.Version: 9.1

BuggyPinterest is my favourite app to find unique and creative ideas, tips and tricks and quotes. However, Pinterest has become buggy since the start of 2019. 1. When clicking on an image and then clicking an image below it that is suggested as similar content. If I exit the second to go back, it glitches me back to the top (the first image) instead of leaving me where I left scrolling. 2. Often at times when I’m neck deep in the layers upon layers of suggested after suggested image, the app glitches and the home page goes completely blank and the only thing that loads is my profile. I have to manually restart the app by swiping off it. 3. When zooming in on a picture it freezes and is stuck on the zoom. I have to manually swipe off the app to get it to work again. All of these are extremely frustrating. I lose my place when neck deep in pictures and I can never find the same picture again cause the search results change slightly with every search. I lose pictures I want to pin. Your app clearly isn’t functioning properly and loses the sole purpose of it, if people are losing their places and not getting to pin what they want. Please fix this..Version: 7.18

Not made for the new iPhonesLove the app on my iPad but it can be so frustrating to use on my phone XS. When clicking into links they are up too high and end up sitting on either side of the notch and behind the time and battery ect. This makes them unable to be used so basically I click on a link then can’t go back or get out of it. I have to reset the whole app..Version: 6.80

Could do with some crucial fixesOk so I enjoy Pinterest for being able to organise a lot of pictures for inspirational stuff. However, since the update there seems to be a glitch where the screen appears as if it’s stuck between two pins, and I can only see half of the image and scroll underneath like normal. It’s hard to fix up again and I end up losing whatever images I wanted to use because restarting the app seems to be the only solution. On top of that, there seems to be a seperate glitch where if you try to rearrange pins on a board, a single image might be flagged or glitchy in some way and you can’t rearrange any pins if that one is touched or moved at all, which leads to “error” and causing everything to go back to where it was, or crashing the app. I WOULD go back and delete the pin to prevent this, but there is no way if indicating which pin this is, or why it’s even doing this in the first place. It becomes tiresome quickly Otherwise, fun app that accommodates to my need for visual stimuli.Version: 7.41.2

I have three things that I would like fixedFirst of all Pinterest has WAY to many adverts on it now. Every time I go onto Pinterest a million of the exact same ads just it me in the face and I don’t want to use Pinterest anymore because of it. The second thing is that when I try to zoom in on pins the screen just freezes and I have to go out of Pinterest in order to continue using it. The third and final thing is that when I try to reply to a comment, the ‘add’ button is covered up by the bar at the bottom of the screen. This is very annoying and means that I can’t reply to any questions or thank people for nice replies and stuff like that. I don’t like using the app as much anymore because it just isn’t what I would expect (nor want) from an app as big as Pinterest. really hope that these things get fixed and that I can enjoy your app once more. Hope you understand and help me to enjoy Pinterest again. Thanks, Leah.Version: 6.71

Regarding an issue...I’ve been a user of Pinterest for over a year and a half now and honestly I can say hand on heart I haven’t had any major issues with the app up until recently. This may sound stupid and as if it’s nothing but the only thing in my feed recently has been pictures/edits of Ariana Grande and sometimes Billie Eilish, now, I have nothing against either one of these performers but I wouldn’t say I’m their biggest fans either. I don’t know what has caused this, I’ve tried everything to get my feed tuned back to stuff I’m interested in but every time I return to the app it’s the exact same. Not trying to cause a problem I just want this issue resolved before I lose interest in the app completely. Kind regards.Version: 7.40

Ugh Please Stop!Sooooo I had the app then deleted it because of all the things popping up saying 'this girl was found dead ten seconds after she took the photo send yo ten of your friends or the person in the background will visit you at 3:00am' And also can you please stop sending me emails and notifications it is very annoying please please stop!.Version: 6.54

Unnecessarily loud adsDeleting app until there is a mute option for ads. I get why adds are necessary, but if I have to mute my phone just to scroll, it’s not worth it. I can just use Instagram..Version: 10.8

Commenting on pins needs to be fixedI’m not sure if it’s the same on computers, but on mobile, the comments really need to improve. When you want to reply to someone’s comment, you can, but if you want to reply to someone’s comment on another person’s comment, you have to manually put the “@“ and write out their whole name. And most of the time this doesn’t even work because their name either has a space in it or their name won’t show up for some reason! Another problem with the comments is that when you reply to someone’s comment and someone tries to reply to you within that comment, you get the notification saying like “oh, so-and-so replied to your comment,” but when you click on that notification, it won’t take you to the comment, so there’s no way for you to see it unless you somehow know exactly which pin your comment was on, then go on a whole scavenger hunt to find that one pin that you probably didn’t even save. I really hope this gets fixed because I really like have conversations with people in the comment section. And on top of it getting fixed, I want Pinterest to add a feature that lets you see all the pins you’ve commented on, like how Twitter has the “Tweets & Replies” option..Version: 8.43

Used to love itThis used to be one of my favorite apps. I got my husband hooked on it as well. But now it seems that ads are taking over. Too many buyable pins that have nothing to do with anything I’ve ever looked at or saved. And way too much pornography for a site that claims they don’t allow it. I highly doubt that a picture of a naked woman with her legs spread and that links to a xxx site is considered “art”. I agree that in artistic instances nudity would be acceptable, but on a site that I am supposed to be able to hand my phone over to my child to play on, these things shouldn’t be on there. I get that it’s the same risk you run with using the net, but these things show up in home feeds when you’ve never looked at anything remotely close to it. My husband showed me a funny gun meme and as her scrolled through the “more like this” several naked women came up. If the pinning rules aren’t going to be enforced, there should be some sort of family filter you can click on. I’ve also noticed over the past couple days, my husband has a recents tab in his boards page that I don’t have. This is actually pretty handy if I’ve looked at something but didn’t pin. Seems like if I try to go back and find something I’ve seen earlier in the day, it’s impossible to find again. With a few improvements and enforcements it could be better..Version: 6.38

Long time userI’ve been a regular pinterest user for almost a decade now. I rarely have a day where I don’t check my Pinterest. I mainly use it to curate aesthetics and find inspiration for my life. It’s very soothing and artistic to me, and the only social media I’ll use. However, I feel as though Pinterest has recently gone down hill. There’s an overwhelming amount of ads. To the point of every other pin is an ad. Most of them are irrelevant to me and my feed is no longer aesthetically pleasing, just full of junk. And I’m not opposed to tasteful ads- I’ve even bought multiple products advertised to me on Pinterest that had beautiful ads that matched my interest and weren’t overwhelming. But there’s just too many now and too many pointless ones. It makes Pinterest significantly less enjoyable. I also don’t understand why Pinterest no longer shows you who pinned the pins in your feed, and when you click in you can’t click on the original user who pinned. It’s totally confusing and counterintuitive- I keep trying to click the icons of people to view their profile but I can’t. The best way for me to do it is to scroll through the hundreds of people I follow to find them. It’s a huge pain. Please make peoples profiles clickable from their pins like they used to be. I’m satisfied with most of the other features of this app and glad to be a part of the community!.Version: 9.19

Terrible customer service and app performance. Misrepresentation of maximum allowable store pins.For the las several months I’ve consistently tried to understand how the Pinterest can misrepresent the maximum number of stored pins as being 200,000 The embarrassing Pinterest app algorithm doesn’t send error message prior any such 200,000 pin limit. It allowed 55,000 additional pins to saved before an error message was sent to user that they reached their number of stored pins. Meanwhile, the number of boards allowed has increased four fold? That’s absurd. The capricious response to question about why someone is forced to tear six years of work because the app developers didn’t include a basic feature that prevents any pin count over the alleged 200,000 pin limit. Just so I’m clear the solution to this problem issue is do nothing but adopt intransigence as customer service tool. The poor performance behavior of Pinterest app isn’t the burden of the user. The ethical response to the problem is to add a solution to the problem in Pinterest app feature, not insult the intelligence of career customer service reps like myself. What I described was clear example of maxim, you get what you pay for. My phone could never get away with redundancy and deflection as response to horrible lack foresight by Pinterest app developers..Version: 9.42

Tired of my home feed refreshing all the timeI’ve never made a review before because I didn’t care enough to before. But I have so much dedication to Pinterest, my issues with the updates have begun affecting my attitude for the app. I’ve been on Pinterest for probably a decade and no update has me more upset than the constant refreshing of the home page. I use all the platforms so I know that if you change from the home feed to your profile or to the search tab back to the home feed, the home feed automatically refreshes... when I even open the app sometimes I see a pin right away that I’d pin but for some reason it refreshes!! This is so irritating. Please fix this to wear it only updates the Home Screen if you pull down the feed from the top for a second. Like Twitter. You can’t even scroll through the feed sometimes without it randomly updating. Also the ads Pinterest.. come on. They’re every third pin! I get you have to pay the bills but more often than not your ads are irrelevant to my search. Speaking of searching, why is it that when I search one thing my home feed will suddenly be filled with that one search? I didn’t follow the topic, I didn’t follow a new board, I don’t care to see it on the home feed I have sort of curated myself. This has been a lot of complaints and my rating is low so that you get how irritated I am. But any other time you’d get a 5/5. I love you Pinterest, rarely change..Version: 9.23

ALL of my accounts deleted by pinterestI LOVED pinterest - it was my favourite app. then yesterday, when i tried to log into my account, i found that it had been deactivated. i have seven accounts to i tried to log into one of my others to let my followers know but that, too had been deactivated. ALL of my accounts were deleted by pinterest. randomly. i contacted them many times to no avail. i even made two new accounts to contact my followers but they wer deactivated the second i tried to log in again. i am so devastated - i worked so hard on every single one of my accounts and for them to just be deleted? i had worked so hard - i had thousands of followers. i hope that this is a glitch that can be fixed, as i cannot think of a reason why each NEW account i make is deactivated too..Version: 9.26

Great app, butSometimes when attempting to scroll through a board after rearranging it, the scrolling is oddly difficult—significantly slower and more limited than usual, and when I stop touching the screen it scrolls up of its own accord. There doesn’t seem to be a reason for this. The activity page is just awful. Not only do I now not get to see the boards to which my pins were saved, but now they’re swamped with recommended “related” pins—a feature I can already access from an excessive number of alternate means. Let me see the boards to which my pins were saved, and cut the recommendations in the activity feed. No one wants them there. The process to reorder and personalise pins in their boards is cumbersome. To move a single pin I need to click it, click reorder, and then wait for the board to load, and then I have to scroll to find the pin, and only *then* can I move it—and after all that, the preview doesn’t show the end result of the change in the actual board itself, so you don’t know how it looks until you save it. This process used to be so simple; just a tap and hold to drag it into place. Why was it changed?.Version: 7.1

Constantly pushes salesThe app now constantly pushes sales for similar products to what you’re looking at with annoying white dots all over the photo and pop ups. What was a simple browsing experience now requires a lot more taps. Stop ruining the experience with your greed, Pinterest..Version: 9.20

Ads are getting worseVideo ads with sound make the app slower and interrupts/pauses if you’re listening to something while browsing.Version: 9.33

This app needs to fix safety issues for minors ASAPOverall, this app is really great and I love Pinterest. While for a long time Pinterest was mainly for a certain crowd (almost all adults) sharing recipes, crafts, and similar, there’s been a wider variety of content including memes, fandom stuff, tiktoks, etc. which have a much younger crowd. This isn’t a problem in itself, especially since they don’t interact much due to the algorithms. However, some things about this concern me A LOT regarding the safety of kids. I see a lot of kids posting photos and videos of themselves in reaction to content and this has me scared for them. Not just teenagers, but CHILDREN. Really young children. Ive seen so many times kids giving out their age and location in the comments for everyone to see!!! This is dangerous and there isn’t any way to report this either!!! I understand that there is no way to completely prevent kids from being on this app, but there needs to be ways to prevent kids from posting information and photos and videos of themselves in the comments like they are. The ability to react to posts like this is great if it were just adults sharing recipes, but this NEEDS to be addressed. As someone who grew up on the internet unmoderated, I had to discover the hard way how creepy some people are. I was lucky to not have had anything major but I could easily see some creep pretending to be 14 or something and messaging these kids..Version: 9.11

Crashing non stopThe app has randomly started crashing if I spend longer than a minute scrolling. When I reopen it doesn’t take me to where I was which is super annoying! A lot of then scrolling back through things I’ve already seen.Version: 8.3.1

ProbsCan't search boards?.Version: 9.28.1

Oh.Why bring the quick saves back? It was better without them, how can we tell if we saved that pin before or not it’ll involve clicking out of the photo and trying to save it to see. Advertisements are literally taking over and videos/shopping are at the top. I don’t want video/pictures to click into I want pictures to save, ideas to save not videos. I mean sometimes videos are okay I save them sometimes but they are repetitive videos at the top when looking for similar pictures, at least put them in the middle they are disruptive especially the ads when scrolling up. Fine! Keep the ads, get rid of the excessive video pop ups! I change my mind, so many excessive ads and random auto playing of advertisements, it’s too loud! Keep the videos! Also give us back pictures in comments, it’s an enjoyment to share especially art! Don’t take that away please! Update: Also, before the update into quick saves it was easier to save, didn’t have to scroll to the certain board I created. Now they are suggesting me my boards that I have that aren’t even nearly related to the photos I try to save…don’t even get me started on the automatic refresh when there are so many brilliant photos to be saved, I cry!🥲😂.Version: 10.4

What’s up with the ads?! Please go back to how it wasI love Pinterest, hours could easily go by without realising as I browsed the app, finding useful tips and beautiful pictures. It’s always been a fantastic and resourceful tool as is. When you first removed the ‘like’ button, it was a bit frustrating as it was useful but I soon got used to its absence. Then you said you will be getting rid of the explore page which is again frustrating because sometimes when you don’t know what to browse, you can select from the available categories and get inspired. But now worst of all, there are a ridiculous amount of ads that I’m not interesting in seeing and when I say ridiculous amount, I mean every 4th image is an ad. Why are you changing Pinterest?? It was a beautiful and smooth system, now I’m just getting frustrated with what’s being shown and I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels that way. Please make it go back to how it was originally. I’m all for change as long as it’s good and so far especially with this ad nonsense it hasn’t been. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!!.Version: 6.62

The the heck?….New update one day ago and now I can't see or access my boards. If I try to save a pin I get a notice that 'it will be saved to my profile' or I can change. When I hit change it will pull up and show all my boards but it disappears as soon as I pick the board to save to….back to a useless blank……major error in the update. Can't find any help on the website at all. UPDATE: just got an 'update' to the app….STILL DOESN'T WORK…CANNOT ACCESS ANY OF MY BOARDS..Version: 9.20

Updates are becoming ridiculousI used to love Pinterest but the updates in the past year have become increasingly impractical and honestly ridiculous. - Bring back the ‘Explore’ section, because that is what Pinterest is about, isn’t it? Bad call to remove it. - When I get a notification saying that a comment of mine has been liked, if I click the comment it takes me to the post but removes the option to send the post or save it anywhere? What is the point of removing this feature? To make the pin take up more of the screen? Undo this please? - The group board features are botched and I’m not sure if my complaint only applies to one (the ‘SAGA Group Board’), but in the ‘Activity’ tab everyone has to scroll down to get to the recent activity as some notifications are permanently stuck at the top. I thought that this was just a bug and would be squashed soon but this has remained a problem for over seven months now. A request - For Business profiles, can we be able to arrange which pictures go in which slots (in the banner at the top) and be able to focus them on the right parts instead of them being cropped oddly. I would be like to be able to organise them and make it more aesthetic please. Overall a good app, but slowly declining in quality..Version: 7.18

Used to be greatThis app used to be my absolute favourite, spent a ton of time on there. It’s been destroyed by its developers, I have no idea why, but they have taken away every useful feature it had. My feed is now full of irrelevant pins and when I try to search I get the same links over and over, usually to stuff they want me to buy. When someone comes up with an app that does what Pinterest used to do, I’ll download it in a heartbeat..Version: 9.30

I hate the new updateI’m a big Pinterest user. Spend several hours per day and I hate the new update. I spend most of my time scrolling Pinterest on my phone and with the new update it’s hard to save images and to view full screen a pin of interest. Please go back to previous version!!!.Version: 7.36

Why have you done this ?This app used to be perfectly functional but now it is completely dysfunctional . The purpose of Pinterest is to save “pins” and sort them into “boards” so that you may have an organized place to save various pictures/ links of different themes . Now , every pin you save automatically saves to something called “profile” and if you want to sort it into a specific board you have to go out of your way to change it which is a huge pain . In addition , you are no longer allowed to look at your boards so even if you sort your pins into them you’re only allowed to look at the pins all mixed together in an big ol’ mess . On top of that , now whenever you search for anything it automatically searches for only things that are for sale and you have to manually change it to search the whole of Pinterest . I have spent so much time struggling to find pins I was searching for only to realize it was searching in the “shopping“ tab and that was why I couldn’t find anything . So , essentially they took away the core purposes of the app for no good reason . When will companies start to understand that corporate greed is not going to make them money and is instead the best way to drive your business into the ground ? Please just put this app back to the way it was ..Version: 9.24

Quick SaveI don’t know what’s going on with the new quick save feature but it’s not worth it. It seems to be interfering with the rest of the app experience. Since it’s introduction, I’ve been unable to see my boards and pins and have to constantly delete and re-download the app to make it work again and see my boards and pins..Version: 9.19

1000s Lost PinsWhen I first started using Pinterest I set up a few boards to add to, but gave up with this as I was too lazy to set up the adequate amount of relevant boards for all the ideas I’d found. So, I took to liking most of the things I saw, but when the update that got rid of the ‘likes’ came about we instead got a secret board for ‘my Pinterest likes’ which held all those past pins. I continued using this secret board exclusively - I never did take to curating properly - until another update in early April caused ‘my Pinterest likes’ to disappear entirely. Now, the other few boards I set up originally are all still there and viewable, but the secret board which held over 30k pins has just gone and there doesn’t seem to be any recognition that this is a wider-spread issue, nor any relevant help on the website’s FAQs. It’s pretty much ruined the user experience for me now.Version: 6.48

Why?! With the ads, no ad free version and now you change the saving options!I have been so disappointed and frustrated by the ads, especially the video ads! First people who have visual problems there should be a way to at least turn off the motion of the ads, like an accessibility feature! Then before I even scroll down there are three ads a page if not more! I wish there was at least a paid version for people who really dislike the ads taking over Pinterest. This has almost put me over the edge with giving up on this app. Now worst of all you incorporate an unorganized button in the exact spot as the old save button... why?! The entire point of Pinterest is organizing a catalog of things you like. Why create a board that is unorganized and if it’s really for quick saves then MOVE THE BUTTONS! Leave the normal save button when you chose a board then hit save and switch the new “chose a board” button to the QUICK SAVE BUTTON! Don’t change the entire way to save pins based off of this new quick save feature!! Add a button and leave the original way to save untouched. Please at least create an option to turn off quick save option in settings!! Also a paid version for ad free or at very minimum an accessibility feature for vision impaired individuals for the movement of all the video ads!!! Please, please consider this or I’m unfortunately going to have to give up on Pinterest. Thanks for any consideration..Version: 9.8

Pinterest update , again!Below you will find my first review, this is an update! It’s now more than a year since I fell in love with Pinterest ... however... I’ve just been tempted to click on yet again the latest update and once more am sorry I did. I’ve been clicking on items that were suggested for me, and am being forced more and more towards Instagram. What? You guys own it or something? I have absolutely no interest in Instagram or opening an account, and if this continues my enjoyment of Pinterest will be spoiled and I shall stop using it! ——————————————————— Earlier...... I've only been using this app for a few weeks, so having no prior experience of previous versions I have no axe to grind. However after reading the current reviews I am very reluctant to click on any button that says update! Using this app I am able to indulge my passion for needle felting, painting, textile art and quilting. It's a fabulous tool for collecting ideas, tips and information. I have no connection problems (yet!) I use BT Infinity Internet service and my Ipad2 still running ios v9 . No speed issues here . My view about updates is that companies employ developers to work on their sites, and to keep them gainfully employed they are always doing updates...why? Because they can!.Version: 6.38.1

Frustrating Turn For The WorstI’ve used Pinterest from the beginning. I used it for almost every aspect of my life from pinning teaching ideas to holiday crafts to recipes and self care. The recent updates to turn it into primarily a shopping app are outrageously frustrating. I can’t search for anything anymore. I went to try to find ideas for sewing projects, beaded bracelet ideas, IVF organization and it’s all just products products products from big box stores. That’s not inspiration, I know about Target already thank you. They also removed the feature where you could search for other users boards from the app. I used to find the best ideas from searching users boards, like seeing what others had on their “camping” or “mending” boards for example but now you have to be so specific and you can only see sponsored single posts it makes it hard to discover anything new. It’s just unbelievable that now when I search for something like “jewelry projects” or “sewing projects” I just get a million Etsy and Michaels listings for already made projects. Completely useless and I’m so irritated. I’m sad that the golden days of Pinterest were I would turn to it for everything seem to have passed..Version: 8.44

Completely commercializedThis app is impossible to navigate because anything you click on is coated in ads. Most annoying are the video ads which scroll in front of the web content. This sucks my data and i avoid using Pinterest when I can avoid it..Version: 8.5

Can only tell tech support about listed problemsPinterest is pretty good unless something isn't working right, but just try to tell them something is wrong if it doesn't happen to be one of the very few problems they've decided to list on their help page. Apparently, Pinterest thinks everything is perfect and any difficulties are user problems because the available options are only about how to use it right. There seems to be no email address, etc. to which to send problems that they don't want to hear about. Well, too bad. Here's a maddening problem: If you are viewing anything that has to do with Taste of Home recipes after a minute or so a T of H ad will appear on the left and a larger one on the right. Together these block out a significant part of the screen. (I'm using an iPad 2 Air with iPadOS 14.2). You can close the ad on the left by touching the X in the upper right hand corner and it goes away completely. However, the larger one on the right simply turns off the ad and leaves a big white rectangle where the ad used to be, which continues to obliterate the same amount of the page as the ad did. There's no way to get rid of the white box. This does appear to be a problem with the app since the ads don't even appear on the T of H web page. Drives me crazy...almost as crazy as not being able to find a way to report the problem!.Version: 8.44

BadI have heard good things about this app but I have never gotten the chance to even experience it. Because I have tried over and over and over again to try make a account but nooooooooo pinterest doesn’t let me and I am in the age group to be able to make an account and all I wanna do is scroll on pinterest and chat with my friends but I can’t do that and this isn’t the first time I have had issues with trying to make an account I tried the start of December last year but nope and now I have tried again today and still no if this doesn’t get fixed I will start to warn people about this and tell them they should talk to you guys about it and I don’t like being mean and I don’t think that is mean I just want to get on to pinterest and that’s a good thing for you guys but there is other a bug or something going on that you guys have not realised about and idk why it’s not working I have checked all the information and everything I am doing is right soooooo idk Kind regards.Version: 10.10

I love the app but I can’t stand the updatesIve been using Pinterest for about 6 years (off and on). Back when I first started using it me and my mom would find birthday party ideas and things like that but as Ive grown I continued to use it to feed into my current interests. I have been using it to find references for my fan art drawings and used to be able to comment under the pin with photos and videos and share what I created using the pin. It was one of my favorite features of the app and as a teenager that doesn’t use any other social media, I’m disappointed in the numerous updates that have taken away the actual fun out of the app. This is an issue because the app is about inspiration and using other people’s ideas to better your own. But if you can’t show how the idea actually turned out then your less likely to try it. Therefore leading to boredom of the app. I’m not sure the reason this feature was taken away but I do know that it was a big mistake. I hope they put it back in the next update and maybe the A-Z sorter for pins would be nice too? Like how many things are they going to take away- well anyways Pinterest is a great app for sharing your ideas and your creations and if you enjoy that kind of stuff try it that’s why I gave 4 stars. But to Pinterest please stop taking features away so you can add others it gets frustrating when you like something and it’s snatched away from you for no reason..Version: 9.42

Good, but InconsistentI love pinterest and I think the new layout is quite interesting... However, there are many essential qualities of this app that I’ve carried issues with for a long time now. The inconsistency of their effectiveness, for one, is major. Sometimes I’ll get a notification on my phone saying someone has commented or saved one of my pins... But after opening the app and checking the notifications tab I’ll find nothing at all. This doesn’t always happen but usually it does and I find it super annoying. Another example of this issue with inconsistencies— or perhaps simply an issue in general—is when I DO manage to receive a notification from someone liking or responding to my comments on pins. Upon clicking on this notification I am not directed to the actual pin itself— but merely a non-interactive image of the pin with the comment section below it. Once again, it doesn’t always happen but is especially frustrating when I want to save this pin to another board or perhaps haven’t saved it at all and wish to do so... Yet I am unable to and my only resort is to take a screenshot and search it up on my own terms. (Even then it’s almost always unsuccessful.) Like I said, Pinterest is a great app with good means— but it is small annoyances like the ones aforementioned that keep me from calling it perfect..Version: 7.39

Unfixed issuesSo I have had the Pinterest app for about four or five years. For a while everything was good, everything worked and I didn’t have many problems. However, recently a problem has popped up that seems unable to be fixed. I am unable to follow anybody, I can unfollow people but for some reason when I go into somebody’s profile and hit the follow button it lights up and tells me that I am unable to follow the person. But when I hit the back button and go back in I am not following them anymore. Contacting Pinterest support proved to be a hassle as I either got a bit or a supposedly real person that was talking about issues on my pins that had nothing to do with the original problem at all. I even tried all the tips given, deleting app cache didn’t work, unfollowing pins and boards did not work and uninstalling and then reinstalling the app did not work. I was honestly about to just give up when I finally got a real person and they said that they were working on it and that it would take a while. I have not heard anything back since and even after multiple app updates the problem is still there. So yes Pinterest has a ton of pins and stuff but when you encounter an actual problem it is almost not worth it to try and contact support because either you get an unhelpful bot that gives you tips you already did. Very rarely do you get somebody real, it took me ten tries to get a real person.Version: 9.6.1

It’s really good but it is way too slow.I have used this app for like 3 years now and I don’t use it. I used to love this app like a year ago but now I just don’t like it as much. It just takes ages to load anything and I have a really good internet speed so it is definitely Pinterest. It has changed so much now. I think that Instagram is way easier and I can also do a lot more on there than Pinterest. I will probably delete my account due to how slow it is and how much I have not used it in the last year. You might as well get an Instagram account and make it private because you can actually follow people such as Ariana grandé and Billie eilish. Also pretty much everybody has Instagram. I just think that Pinterest is really outdated and not so popular due to not many known users on there. I also hate how you have to keep blocking ppl that you don’t want to follow u. Can’t you just decide for urself and make ur account private or public. GET WITH THE TIMES PINTEREST!? I kinda hate Pinterest now so. Thanks for reading my angry and demanding review.💕.Version: 7.29

Tampering Once AgainHow many times do I have to write in about the same issues? My views use to be 199,000 and then they drop to 100,000 or below. Views do not diminish, they Increase. Why are my views constantly being taken away? I was back on the regular display today (Featured Boards) and then they went away once again. This is very unprofessional. Also, my impressions have a count of zero on a lot of photos. Can you put my Featured Boards back, as this other layout of yours is boring and plain. You said this would be fixed months ago. Are minorities welcome on your app? I will have to forward my concerns to Apple. Your issues on this app are never fully resolved. I put in a lot of work on this site. The customer service is not consistent. Every now and then you will get reliable help (Eli) Most, act like they are unconcerned..Version: 8.38.3

I cant see new ideas anymore, it makes me not get on this app like everMy favorite part of this app was the fact that I could go to explore and find new ideas, hence why I always have so many boards. New ideas would pop up in the explore and i would love it and go crazy looking for new ideas from pinterest by looking through the explore every chance I got but you guys got rid of the explore. Now when i click one pin even by accident i get 50 more pins for the exact same pin. Sometimes It would be one simple recipe of pie and now i have 30 of them everyday. So then you guys created an option where I can not get specific suggestions from what I clicked but even when I unfollow what I clicked it doesnt matter because my feed is literally still exact suggestions from my boards I created. So i feel like i dont get anywhere with this app. I am literally on instagram all the time because I can see different new things not different versions of the same thing especially ones I pinned already. Its fine when im searching for something but after a while I get the point and I get off the app. I wont even bring up the ads. Sorry but Im done with this app. I sure i wont be the last. Your new users dont know what their missing but seeing the same sweater everyday will get boring for them too eventually. Bring back explore so we can see new ideas, stop thinking i want to see 80 different versions of a pink Christmas tree..Version: 7.35

Unsubscribed but still sending me alertsHave had this app for quite few months now and at first it was something of a novelty but it’s constant alerts became tiresome as it essentially repeats the same things over and over; no doubt some people find it rewarding. Have uninstalled it recently owing to a virus problem that was undoubtedly hidden in one of these sites it highlights. I was helping my wife research hairstyles and as I found one that may have been interest to her I forwarded the link via Watts app; it appears that the link contained a possible virus as an alert came up on her iPhone as she opened it; her phone fortunately automatically set to destroy the virus which appears to be successful; my phone thankfully didn’t get any virus. I have uninstalled the app and also unsubscribed via the email alerts it sends daily only to find Pinterest continues to contact me. I’ve unsubscribed numerous times now but to no avail..Version: 8.24

Disappointingly mismanagedI’ve used Pinterest for years and years, and I’m convinced they are intent on running themselves into the ground. Never have I seen a company take everything good about it’s product and with each additional update incrementally destroy it. Frankly, it’s mind-boggling. Every feature the users enjoy is done away with or modified to become a shadow of itself. It’s a shame because they have something there, only they don’t seem to know what to do with it. It’s probably greed driving their decisions, but while they may squeeze out a quick buck, they’ll turn away content creators and users until they’re left with a buggy, dried up old husk of a site that no one visits anymore. What a shame, Pinterest..Version: 9.21

I love this app; but...I cannot get enough of pinterest. It’s my go-to for inspiration and ideas. But there are SO many advertisements as of late! They take up such a ridiculously large portion of the home page. They’re the size of large pins, and I have to scroll through so many! 😿 It’s to the point where my entire screen will just be full of ads, and I have to actively look for the pins that I want to see. Yes I can just press “hide ad” but there are just too many of them to be doing that every time. I would be open to a paid option where I can pay a one time fee to browse Pinterest ad-free. I will keep using it as I love using it- but I just had to put my honest feedback somewhere. Toodles! 👋🏼.Version: 7.0

My Go-to AppI love Pinterest, it's helpful and useful for everything from decorating a house to planing a hens. There are a few glitches here and there; some of the things "picked for you" can be a bit off and it's a bit frustrating when you search for something once and suggested pins flood your feed for the next few weeks of the same category (if a party you have been pinning ideas for has passed, you didn't want to keep seeing things a month later). I wsh there was better memory on the search- every time I close Pinterest it loses my place (on my iPad), even if I go to my emails for a minute, I come back and it resets everything . I do miss the "Like" button too but otherwise it's my morning wake up routine and my bed time tradition- it gets the creative juices flowing so thank you!.Version: 6.35

Just not the sameI have been using Pinterest for many years and I’ve watched it transform from a highly loveable interface to simply a selling tool. While this may be great for businesses, I feel you have removed a lot the features that I loved about Pinterest, and it appears for no reason. I loved how you could see what board a pin came from so you could easily follow and I miss the explore page feature. Now it’s all about what is ‘suggested’ for us rather than what we actually follow (please explain to me why the ‘following’ tab is full of business accounts I’m not even following???). I feel like Pinterest’s main focus now is helping brands and companies trying to sell their stuff to us, so it has less of a community feel. I love the inspiration I get from the app but I just truly don’t enjoy using it as much as I used to..Version: 8.16

Story pins⭕️Hello! so I just wanted to start off by saying that I love pinterest! it has a much more friendly environment compared to other social media apps and has a nice format. my only issue with the app is the new feature story pins. I gained access to them on my business account, and I noticed a few things at first. the first asset I would consider changing is only ebig able to access them on a business account. I really wish that you could request them and create on a personal. the second issue with story pins is that I can't create them any more on the mobile app (I am using an iPhone 5s). I was seeing to create them for a month or two, but now when I tap "create story pin" pinterest says that I can't create them because I'm not updated. I know that I am updated fully on pinterest, because I was able to create before and I've checked on the App Store that there aren't any new installs. I can only create them on the desktop version of pinterest. this is fine- it isn't as easy but it works. however, on the desktop version there isn't an option to tag someone in the pin (not the description). it would be helpful if you fixed this issue. otherwise, pinterest is an amazing app! thank you!.Version: 9.4

Over all the stuff that I don’t follow but am forced to look at!I use to love Pinterest. It was my favorite. I chose what I wanted to look at. Then they started changing things and changing things more and more. Made us have to look at their stupid ads and suggested posts. Now it has gotten to the point to where 90 percent of everything is ads and suggested posts-guess what I don’t want to see what you have suggested. I want to see what I want to see-what I chose to follow. There is no way to remove the crap and even if you report and remove the incessant ones, they just add that many more. Here’s a little tip-I do not want to see and have no interest in pins that are in a foreign language and I have to look at them constantly. So I’m really getting over Pinterest. Add in the fact that I can’t see who pins what anymore-I like seeing when the people I follow that I like have pinned something but now I can’t tell because it’s blank where a user use to be listed. Every update it gets worse and I find myself getting on Pinterest less and less. I am quickly losing my interest in Pinterest. They need to go back to letting people control what they look at. I could understand having some ads but the amount of content on my board that I didn’t follow has gotten way out of control. If it doesn’t get any better and I keep getting pins in foreign languages then I will just quit using it. I hope it improves soon. If not then I will stop using it..Version: 6.74

FrustratingThe only problem is, I barely ever see pins from boards I follow. Majority, if not all, pins are recommendations. I unfollowed a category of boards (example; food) and I’m still getting recommendations in relation to the example. Edit* it’s been two months or so since writing this review and nothing has changed. I did a small experiment where I unfollowed all of my Marvel boards last month, I have not searched any Marvel related pins but my wall is still bombarded with Marvel pins. I now, only follow aesthetic boards and I see no pins from the boards I follow. Edit** I decided to make a new account with entirely new boards and pins. I’m suddenly getting pins which I have not searched for nor have I pinned. It’s frustrating that I’m getting pins I have not shown interest in and not seeing any from my following boards..Version: 8.24

ALL Ads & Algorithm. NO (real) friendsThe Sponsored Pins are out of control. I see sponsored content more than I see my own friend’s post (and I mean face-to-face friends). On multiple occasions the sponsored posts have opened without any intentional interaction on my part; just from my scrolling through the app or when searching for something. But I have to put an effort just to see what an individual friend’s personal activity/recent pins. I feel like a creep. And now I’m getting told “Hire an interior designer from [sponsor]” when I’m just tryna look at a bookcase! That’s too far. I’ve been on Pinterest since it’s was invite only and now it’s overcrowded with multi-level marketing schemes and aggressive sponsored ads posing as real pins. I miss seeing my REAL life friend’s posts, not just what some AI algorithm thinks I want. And what’s up with the pop-up asking “did you find what you were looking for?”, why do you need an answer when I don’t even know what I was looking for? It’s just as uncomfortable as having a sales associate invading your personal space and following you around the store tryna make a sale sell when you’re just trying look around. That behavior is what keeps people from making a purchase or coming back again. Now I’m concerned with how my data is being used. Don’t pull a Facebook Pinterest, I’d hate to see you go down like them and lose the trust of your users..Version: 6.71
