Things Are Temporarily Broken, But We Are Working on It

by Heather on May 1, 2012

Starting yesterday around 11am Eastern Paul and I began getting many versions of the following email:

Hi, I love the free version of SpinPicks, but suddenly it’s not working. Well, at least the Pinterest feeds won’t spin.
Any advice?
Spin out in Spartanburg

We are replying to these emails with the following:


As of yesterday, Pinterest is having issues that affect apps like ours. It’s a little bit out of our control, but we’re doing everything we can to help resolve the issue as quickly as possible. Thanks for your patience and letting us know about your issue. We apologize for the inconvenience!

Paul and I firmly believe this is a temporary issue. While you don’t get to see what’s happening, behind the scenes, please be assured we are working hard to not only fix the missing Pinterest  feeds, but to bring you lots of new, cool platfors to Spin.

In the mean time, why not give Instagram, FlickR (cc), TwitPic, Reddit/r or PicPlz a spin? There are lots of cool things to see.

Spin on!

(And thanks again for your patience!)
