Great modern interface for Pinboard

Pinstachio is just what I was looking for - a modern app built on top of the rock solid Pinboard service. Using the Pinboard website on an iOS device is no fun. Fortunately I found Pinstachio. It fits right in on iOS.

Just in the week that I have been using the app a couple features that I want have been added. Of course I wish syncing my bookmarks was quicker. Hopefully sync time will improve now that background updating in Pinstachio has been added.

Thanks so much for your support! Regarding the speed, I would definitely like to keep improving upon it; if you don't mind, could you reach out via the support option inside the app to see where improvements can be made?

The app works wonderfully well. The developer is passionate about providing a good product. Best of all he’s chosen a business model that I am convinced will provide continuing updates. Many venerable Pinboard apps in the past were sadly abandoned. Pinstachio is poised to keep evolving.

Thank you for your kind words!

Doesn’t support descriptions‽

The good:
• I’m glad that this app exists—because the field of Pinboard apps seems to be dwindling by the day.

The bad:
• For some reason, this app doesn’t seem to support Pinboard’s “description” field for URLs that you’ve bookmarked—neither when adding nor when viewing bookmarks? So that alone makes this app a unusable for me.

Like, let’s suppose that you had used Pinboard’s website to bookmark a page for a sneaker, and you added a note in the description field about what size and color your brother would like for their birthday—so that you could then later buy them those sneakers.

Well, if you’re using this app, too bad: You won’t be able to see what you had put in that description field.

PS I rated this two stars rather than one star because I think that this app still has potential. And if the developer were to further improve the app, such as by adding support for Pinboard’s description field, I think that this app could go places.

Hi there! I am happy to say that version 1.0.5 now supports descriptions.
