Some days Pinterest is just a compilation of things that we鈥檇 never be able to get our hands on, while other days, it鈥檚 the best inspiration for all things DIY. Today, we鈥檙e here to tell you that it鈥檚 becoming way more than just a tease of cute bags and gadgets. Pinterest is getting two new awesome updates that鈥檒l satisfy your shopping and even app downloading needs.


So, you know those times when you鈥檙e riding the flow of all your pinspiration? Maybe it鈥檚 for DIY room decor or the perfect laptop case. Either way, you鈥檙e looking for things you might be able to buy and add to your life. Like, it鈥檇 be perfect if we could just conveniently hit a 鈥淏uy鈥 button and see our pin being delivered to our front door. Well, looks like that鈥檚 going to become a reality within the next six months.

The social network has been picking up when you鈥檙e pinning shoppable items and sending you alerts when your pin鈥檚 price drops, but now they鈥檙e going to let you shop straight from your inspo boards. Are you hyperventilating out of excitement as much as we are?


Pinterest is also adding an 鈥淚nstall鈥 button on app pins. So get your app pinboards and iPhones ready because all those productivity, weight management and exercising apps are about to get downloaded into your phone with a simple tap. This feature will only be available on the iOS Pinterest app, but hopefully Pinterest will be showing some love to Android soon. Apple鈥檚 App Store pinboard is now up, so be sure to go check it out and put that 鈥淚nstall鈥 button to good use!
