Pinterest updates Android app, improves group boards

On Friday, Pinterest announced that it would be updating its Android app to version 1.3.2, adding better group board support. As of today, that update is now live and available from both the Google Play Store and the Kindle app store. Those who use Pinterest frequently from their Android mobile will be happy with the changes, which improve the overall experience while adding some handy functionality that was previously lacking.

This update centers around its group boards, with the improvements all dealing with that. Specifically, the update concerns contributors on boards, as well as the groups you’re following. With the update, users can now check out which other contributors are pinning to the same board as you, allowing you to spot those with similar interests, for example.

Likewise, users now have more control over boards in general. When you receive a new board invitation, you’ll have the option of either accepting it and ignoring it. If you get tired of one of the group boards you’re part of or want to leave it for some other reason, you can now do that from your Android smartphone or tablet after updating.

The app allows users to pin images from the device’s camera as well as images found online. Users can grab the update from the Google Play Store; it’s available for Android 2.2 and higher, and is 5.5MB in size. You can check out its other features, as well as screenshots of the app, at the Play Store here.
