    The social networking start-up, Pinterest, has rolled out a new version of its Android and iOS app, as a move to boost its appeal to a broader audience. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, Pinterest is an online scrapbook where users can “pin” images and share them with others, Pinterest has grown to about 23 million users in July from about one million a year ago, according to the analytics firm, comScore.

    The move comes as social networking high-flyers are “feeling the sting of investor disenchantment.” Facebook, which is currently the number one social networking company, is trading far below its $38 a share IPO price. In a move to keep going strong, Pinterest already opened its online service to the general public, ending a multi-year period in which users who signed up had to wait to be admitted to the network. As part of its next move, the apps were created to boost its appeal to a broader audience.


    The update description reads the following:

    All new iPad app that makes it easy to pin, repin and browse the web.

    Better usability for the iPhone and improvements to stability and performance.

    Sign up right from the app and get pinning today!
    If you are interested in getting the app, you can do so by downloading it for free from the App Store.
