Are you a Pinterest junkie or know someone who is? If so, you might want to keep that loved one away from the App Store, because the service has finally carried the addiction over to the iPad and Android this week.
Pinterest has announced the availability of a new, universal iOS app which finally brings the company's addictive "pin it" service to the larger screen of the iPad as well as the iPhone and iPod touch.
"Whether you’re traveling to another city, checking out gadgets in a store, or cooking dinner in your kitchen, you can now take Pinterest with you," the company's blog explains. "Our apps allow you to pin, discover, and access your account from wherever you choose."
But that's not all -- Pinterest has also arrived on Android at the same time, much to the glee of all those new Nexus 7 tablet owners.
"Android owners have been very vocal with their requests for an app -- every product announcement we’ve recently made has resulted in the question 'What about an Android app?'," the blog notes. "We were listening, and our custom-designed Android app makes it simple and fast to pin, so that the time you spend on Pinterest is as productive as possible. We also made sure the app works well on Android phones and tablets, regardless of your device’s cost, speed or screen size."
Pinterest is even coming to the Kindle Fire later this week through the Amazon Appstore, but the company still appears most proud of its new app for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, which is now available in the App Store.
