Pinterest iPad App Due Soon
Great news pinners, the Pinterest app for iPad is due tout de suite.
Ben Silbermann, one of Pinterest's founders, told the New York Times that the app is in development, but he did not say when it would be ready.
The two-year-old site has caught our collective attention lately, but does not reached out into Android phone or tablet apps.
Pinterest currently has an iPhone app which can be used on iPad, albeit in a stretched and sub-par format.
The new app could deliver the same broadscreen Pinterest experience seen on the Pinterest website. That experience is currently missing from the small screen iPhone version.
Pinterest brings out the scrapbooker in everyone who uses it. But it's not all red velvet cupcakes, rainbow hair braids and clever ways with an old jar and a strip of vintage wallpaper.
There's been some grumbling amongst the recipes and wedding tips. When users found out the Pinterest was planning to team up with Skimlinks to take a cut of sales when users clicked through to buy a product pinned there, users were outraged. The plan was subsequently dropped.
Currently, there's some backlash over Pinterest's terms and how it can sell the images you pin.
As reported by Technorati, Pinterest's service agreement gives it the right to sell images that users upload.
Here are the contentious terms:
By making available any Member Content through the Site, Application or Services, you hereby grant to Cold Brew Labs a worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, to use, copy, adapt, modify, distribute, license, sell, transfer, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, stream, broadcast, access, view, and otherwise exploit such Member Content only on, through or by means of the Site, Application or Services.
The Pinterest protest hasn't stopped the site's incredible growth. It shot up to 10 million monthly visitors faster than Facebook, Twitter or any other site tracked by comScore.
