The new sensation to hit the social networking market has more plans in the pipeline to make it even more appealing to new users. Pinterest will shortly be expanding its ever growing empire by introducing an iPad app for users to enjoy.
The co-founder of the site, Ben Silbermann, made an announcement to this effect at SXSW Interactive. SXSW stands for South by South West, and it is a trade show that looks into how the media will develop in the future. It was a good place then for Mr Silbermann to make his announcement.
We know little about the forthcoming iPad app, except that it was described as being “in the works”. No firm date for its availability was given, so we can assume it is a way off becoming reality just yet.
In the meantime, we can expect more appealing user profiles to be launched, so Pinterest definitely has expansion and development plans to anticipate. This site was a slow starter when it first launched, but its success in the past few months has been nothing short of impressive. It remains to be seen whether the new iPad app draws more users to the site, or simply makes it easier for existing users to enjoy it in a different way. Apparently, it is thought that around two thirds of Pinterest’s user base is composed of women, so it is clearly appealing to the female more than the male population. Will this square with the new iPad app?
