Social networking start up Pinterest has unveiled new versions of its app for Android and iPad users. At the same time, the company has updated their iPhone app too.
The development was announced at a party organized by the company for discussing activities and future plans. Meanwhile, the move is being viewed as an effort to boost the popularity of this already in-demand service.
For those who are not aware, Pinterest is an online scrapbook which allows its users to pin images and share them with their peers. The service which had a follower ship of 1 million last year has grown into a mammoth service with around 23 million users. The analytics came from an online metrics site called comScore.
Company sources expect that their new Android and iPad app versions would enhance their popularity and user base. Pinterest is a private firm which currently does not monetize its service. The company had reportedly raised $100 million in funding and was evaluated at $1.5 billion in May. Pinterest opened its service to the general public last week putting an end to their prior service pattern where signed up users had to wait for the company’s approval to start using the services.
Pinterest is currently a 60 member team which is trying hard to support the user base which counts in millions. The company plans to continue to engage its users to maintain its popularity. The new apps for Android, iPad and iPhone have been released by the company keeping that motive in mind. It is yet to be seen what plans the company will bring to balance the financial side of its operations.
