We were notified by Google today that the Spinterest for Pinterest and Spinterest for Pinterest Free have been removed from the Google Play app store.

March 7, 2012

So our hope was for Pinterest to get its API straightened out and in order yesterday sometime around noon EDT. Unfortunately this has not happened. For those that don’t speak developer / geek / nerd whatever. The API is just how people like Paul and I can take public information provided by Pinterest and use […]

What Happened to Pinterest’s API?

March 6, 2012

Eek! At approximately 8pm EDT on Monday, several of the Pinterest data feed servers experienced a problem that it appears they have not fully recovered from. In our experience with past Pinterest-side glitches, they usually get them fixed up after 9am PDT. This outage is a little unusual in that Pinterest.com itself isn’t down any longer.
