Pinterest for Android announcement coming at Google I/O?
Are you one of the many people out there using Pinterest, one of the fastest growing social media sites? If so, exciting news may be on the way for you this week. Over at Ausdroid, while deep diving into the Google I/O app, they discovered an entry from Pinterest indicating the Pinterest for Android app was “now available.” The entry can be found by navigating to Explore > Android > Sandbox > Pinterest from within the Google I/O app. There is no Pinterest for Android app available in the Google Play Store, but the inclusion in the Google I/O app seems to be a pretty strong indication that Pinterest is on its way for Android users. The question remains as to whether it will become publicly available sometime later this week in conjunction with the Google I/O event or at a later time.
An actual Pinterest app for Android will be welcome news for Android users who have had to rely on the mobile version of the Pinterest site up to this point. A Pinterest app would also put Android users on equal footing with iOS users who have been “pinning” from their devices for some time now.
While not a Pinterest user myself, I am glad my friends and family that do use Pinterest will have this option available to them on their Android devices. As far as an official release, our own Stacy Bruce will be in attendance at Google I/O and may be able to pin us with further updates.
