Pinterest, everybody's favorite...umm...thing. That you share stuff on. By pinning things to...okay, look I don't really understand Pinterest. But some of you guys do and that's great! I love it when people enjoy things! It makes them happy! And soon, you can enjoy Pinterest on Android! And be happy! Then you can pin your happiness to something. I think.

Eagle-eyed gadget site from the future Australia, Ausdroid, noticed that among the list of exhibitors in the official Google I/O app is Pinterest, Inc. The company's profile in the app says the app is "Now available for Android." For those who like to do their own personal confirmation, the listing can be found under Explore > Android > Sandbox > Pinterest. Or you can take a look at a screenshot. A-like so:


Of course, a quick search of the Google Play Store confirms that this app is not, in fact, available for Android now. However, the company's presence at Google I/O would lead us to believe that the official app will be launching during Google's Devstravaganza* later this week. Only time will tell, but if you've been waiting to get your Pinterest fix on your Android phone, sit tight. It looks like you won't be waiting much longer.

Update: A Pinterest spokesperson reached out to us to let us know that, no, Pinterest won't be launching at I/O after all. Here's the full quote:

“We're excited about the Android platform and are working hard on building a great app. However, we don't have plans to announce anything @ I/O.”

So, at the very least, for those of you eagerly awaiting this app, the company is working on it. You'll just be waiting a bit longer than we thought.

    I still don't understand the appeal of Pinterest.

    That is a horrible portmanteau.

    I've been using Pinterest on my android for the past 5 months? The appeal of sites (services) like Pinterest and Bolt is that they behave like a huge bookmarking facility. A visual 'best of' the internet. Copyright laws will be tested though ;-) A much better system is http://www.grippit.co.uk

    Pinterest is for women. It's almost frustrating to use because every post is about clothes, etc.

      I'm a bloke... I mainly follow other blokes. It's not rocket science... Stop following women and their clothing choices you perv! ;-) lol

      It does seem that way. I have a women's clothing line and I recently bought 1000 Pinterest followers because I wanted to target women and I could not be happier with the response. The company (Mohr Publicity) was the best for adding Pinterest followers and all completely unique members. They gave me follower and about 600 repins within 24 hours and now the site is taking off. Saved me a lot of time for the $50 it cost.

    Pinterest reached out to us and said we shouldn't expect the app at I/O. Bummer.
