Apple Grants Pinterest Ability To Discover And Directly Install iOS Apps
"Let’s say you’re Pinning workout inspiration to your Marathon Training board. If you see a fitness app that helps you reach your goals, you can download it right from Pinterest," Pinterest explained today in a blog post.
"When you come across an app Pin, tap Install to download the app right to your iPhone or iPad without ever leaving Pinterest (you’ll only see app Pins when you’re using the Pinterest app on your iPhone or iPad)," Pinterest added.
To help kick things off, Apple opened an official App Store account on Pinterest. It currently consists of five boards -- Fashion Apps, App Store at Fashion Week, People + Apps, Healthy Recipes, and Editors' Choice -- with 34 pins.
