Ratings and Reviews
A decent app for Pinboard Users
I have had Pushpin for a while but often opted to use the app PinSwift because it felt more feature-rich. But, after the development for that app ended, and I was unable to reinstall it on a new device, I turned to Pushpin. Generally, the app seems to offer me the opportunity to share my links well, and I appreciate some of the features a lot (such as tag matching). While there are some really good features for power-users (like batch editing), I feel that some features are conspicuously absent (for example, it does not pull any data from RSS or the Web to auto-fill the description section for a new bookmark/pin, which would seem to be an obvious feature to include). I was going to see if power-user functions like this were available through the URL schemes offered on the developer website but it seems that links to this section are no longer accessible on the developers site.

Tag auto-complete needs a tweak
Tag auto-complete (from my own tags, not “suggestions”) is the most important feature of a Pinboard client for me, and Pushpin has it, but I don’t want them to be case-sensitive. The Pinboard website doesn’t distinguish between “ios” and “iOS” and shows all of the links together, but Pushpin shows “ios - 173” and “iOS - 25” on separate lines when entering tags.
The Great Pinboard App
You got to hand it to the developer(s) for keeping PushPin fully functional and relevant. Nothing is broken. It works with iOS 13 and has retained its blazing fast search and speed.
Updates are not at all frequent these days, but when everything is working well, I see little need for it to be wrenched on all the time. And when updates do happen they are significant.
And as always it’s intuitive, with plenty of customization available to make the experience worthwhile and personal. PushPin even plays nice with iPads.
I’d encourage anyone reading this to seriously consider a “tip” to the developer(s). If you enjoy the advanced capabilities it provides and have had years of value and enjoyment from this excellent Pinboard app.
Lastly, as luck would have it, PushPin is also the very last of the iOS Pinboard apps that actually works. So if you are looking for a Pinboard app, PushPin is literally THE ONE that hasn’t been totally abandoned.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for this great feedback and support. It means a lot to us. Your review serves as a great motivation to go forward so keep enjoying our app!
