Now that you know what Pinterest can do for your travel business and what vision the creators of Pinterest have for the platform, it’s time to get started and look into how to download Pinterest. Luckily, this couldn’t be easier!
You can use Pinterest in a couple of different ways:
- Through the desktop version on www.pinterest.com
- Through a Pinterest app
For the desktop version, you don’t need to download anything. We’ll go into how to how to sign up for Pinterest and set up your account in the next article of this tutorial.
The app you’ll need to download on your mobile device, so let’s have a look at what the different app versions look like and how to download Pinterest for these different phones and tablets.
How to download Pinterest for iPhone
If you work on an Apple device, head over to the App Store on iTunes and download the Pinterest app from here. The app is designed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The current app requires iOS 7.0 or later and is available in over 25 languages.
HOW TO DOWNLOAD PINTEREST FOR Android
If you work from an Android device, head over to the Google Play Store and download the Pinterest app from here. When you have linked your device to the store, the app will sync automatically.
HOW TO DOWNLOAD PINTEREST FOR Windows Phone
While Pinterest initially released a ‘wrapper’ (the mobile website wrapped in an app function, so not a native app) to Windows phone users in June 2014 (source), they pulled it months after its release for unknown reasons (source).
At the moment, you can either just use the website version of Pinterest, or download ‘Pin.it’, a third party Pinterest app for Windows Phone (more information here).
Pinterest Browser Button
While there are many more great apps and online tools available for download (check the full list on the resource page), there is one extension that I can recommend you set up first: the Pinterest Browser Button.
When you’ve installed this button to your browser menu, you can simply click it when landing on an interesting piece of content from any website and save it to one of your own Pinterest collections with just one click. More about how to pin on Pinterest in part 8 of this series.
