Pin from an Android device

Right now you can't install the Pin It bookmarklet on Android devices. Luckily, after installing Pinterest for Android, it's simple to Pin from your phone or tablet without installing a separate bookmarklet. 

When you're viewing a page in your Android's web browser:

  1. Tap your device's menu button
  2. Tap Share Page
  3. Tap Create Pin

In general, you can create a Pin whenever there's an option to share, including photos. For example, if you're viewing a photo in Gallery, you can tap Share and then Create Pin.

  2. Tap Choose an existing photo
  3. Select the photo you want to Pin from the Gallery, and follow the instructions

From the device's Gallery

  1. Open the image you want to Pin
  2. Tap the Share icon
  3. Tap Create Pin, and follow the instructions to Pin
