Pinterest for Android Arriving Next Week?

How exciting, Pinterest appears to be headed for its Android debut next week at Google I/O. How do we know? Well, the official Google I/O app has every woman’s favorite obsession app listed in the Sandbox as a presenter. That basically means that they will have some sort of spot set up on level 2 of the Moscone Center to let everyone take their newest creation for a test drive. Many times, these Sandbox presenters are showing off future releases of apps, however, the listing for Pinterest mentions specifically that the app is “now available for Android.” It’s not yet, but likely will be within the next 2-3 days.

Ladies, how you feeling? Your cupcakes, shirtless men, Louboutins, and celebrity outfits will soon become mobile.

    Pinterest is the best but is is mostly women. You can actually load up your system with some targeted followers to get a jump start.I recently bought 1000 Pinterest followers because I wanted to target women .More people are attracted to my site now that I have a couple of thousand followers (hint: Buy them at a reputable company like Mohr Publicity so you can safely and legitimately do this) . It cost me about $50 but only took one day. Worth it in every way.

    Was the lighthearted sexist comment really necessary? 🙁 Women read here too you know, and no, not all of us use Pinterest or understand the obsession with mocking it *because* some women do use it, for that matter.

    The only use I have seen for it is figuring out what to buy the girlfriend for birthdays and such. None of the “What do you want?” “oh nothing”….. game. view her pinterest, click something in it, buy it online…BAM done.

    Nice sexist comment Kellex. 😉 I go there to get my fill of geekery.

    • evulhotdog

      Its not sexist if its true…

      • Moeyknight

        Notice my winky face…I laughed at it. I’m also laughing at your douchiness.

        • Onlooker

          modern girl speak:
          truth teller = douche

    • Couldn’t help myself. I know that some dudes use it too. I just don’t know any personally. 😛

      • Moeyknight

        I was just teasing. We ladies love it. 🙂

        I’m not sure it matters. It’s this kind of entrenched sexism which makes it very hard for me to participate in the community. The lighthearted jokey sexism signals to the commenter base that the more obviously toxic stuff is okay, and it all goes downhill from there.

        I get your intent and the spirit of the gag (Pinterest’s userbase does skew femme-of-center), but look at some of the remarks other users have made.

  • Agreed with @sofunnytom:disqus. I use pinterest as well, to organize potential purchases for digital media equipment and different gadgets I might want for school and future apartment.

      same here. Just wish it wasn’t so femmy. There are other sites like manterest but they don’t perform very well at all. If they could make it just a little more neutral…

      • Moeyknight

        How would they do that? The design centers around who you follow. So follow manly men and stay away from the beauty and fashion boards.

        • Captain_Doug

          I don’t follow anybody. The femmy part of it is the general UI. I don’t know how they would change it, I’m not a designer.

    It’s NOT just for women. It just happens to be mainly populated by women.

    • Robhimself79

      Its not just for women.. Extremely effeminate men like it too.

        And any small business owner with half a brain.
