"The best Pinboard app for iOS" - The Sweet Setup

Pinner is a fast, full-featured app for your Pinboard bookmarks. Designed for all users of Pinboard, you can browse, edit, read, manage, and much more. Pinner has cutting-edge iOS integration including Share Extensions, Spotlight Search, Today Widgets, 3D Touch, and more.

Share Extensions
Create a new bookmark in Pinner from anywhere you can share a URL or web page, using the two Share Extensions.

Quickly save a webpage to Pinboard without ever leaving the current app. Like to automate your apps? Pinner also supports a URL scheme.

Spotlight Search
Search your bookmarks from within iOS' Spotlight Search.

Universal search integration presents Pinner bookmarks alongside web and other app results. Search for a topic and find just the page you wanted, without having to launch Pinner.

Today Widgets
Add Pinner to your Today view with the two widgets.

"Recent Bookmarks" shows your most recent 5 bookmarks. Add it to your Today View, or 3D Touch the App Icon. "Popular on Pinboard" shows what's popular with other users of Pinboard. Add it to your Today View to see the latest bookmarks.

Split View & Slide Over
If you have an iPad that supports Slide Over or Split View, you can multitask with your bookmarks and even open them directly in Safari when split (enable in Settings).

Keep reading a bookmark when switching between devices using Handoff.

Transfer a bookmark directly between copies of the app running on iPhone & iPad, or send the page to Safari on devices where Pinner isn't installed - including Macs running OS X Yosemite.

Social Bookmarking
Along with your bookmarks - synced and saved to your device - browse through categories of bookmarks from other users, including Popular, Recent, Wikipedia & Fandom.

Create custom searches on both your bookmarks and community bookmarks.

Get fast access to your most important bookmarks & the newest ones from around the web. Filter by tag, title, author and URL.

Pinner utilises Safari View Controller, meaning your bookmarks open in the familiar Safari UI with all your sessions and cookies available.

Triple-tap the top bar to switch to Dark Mode, designed to be perfect for night-time reading.

Choose between a huge selection of app fonts, including ones you have installed yourself.

All Devices
Pinner is a universal app available on iPhone and iPad, optimised for Retina displays, 64-bit CPUs, and all sizes of device.

AutoLayout & Dynamic Type support means Pinner looks great on every size of device - from iPhone 4 to iPad Pro.

Perfect! With Multiple tag search!

Chan Pui-Kwan

I have been searching for the perfect Pinboard client for literally years!

One thing that is important to me is the multiple tags search as I organize my tags in a somewhat hierarchical fashion and have been using Delitouch all these years even though it is not longer available but it was the only Pinboard client with multiple tags search. Now I have finally found the perfect replacement!

Everything else have been done very nicely too and a real pleasure to use. The share extension is also very functional as it gives you a list of tag selection as you type. Gone are the days of bookmarking via email! :)

One suggestion: as one is searching with multiple tags, please make it so that only the tags of bookmarks already having the entered tags are shown and their numbers shown. This will allow user to see how many bookmarks are in the "sub-tag" and makes locating a specific bookmark much easier(as on the Pinboard site). This would make a huge difference.

Great work!

iOS 10 only


Not compatible with iOS 9 anymore

The finest Pinboard client and I've bought and tested them all.


I pin to Pinboard at least once an hour it seems and have tried all the clients that have come along.

This is by far the most feature complete, visually appealing and minimal in interface, the best looking and functional iOS8 Extensions (detailed and quick one-click pin).

It even makes for a passable read it later client (although I much prefer a dedicated offline reader such as Instapaper.)

I keep another ios client around for the missing feature of renaming tags, something I find cumbersome on pinboard website.
