Desktop Pins

★★ Beautiful desktop backgrounds that never get boring ★★

Use Pinterest pins as your desktop background. The perfect wallpaper that never gets boring with the latest pins from Pinterest updating automatically. You can use pins from any Pinterest page, category, boards of your friends and followers, and of course pins from your own boards.

Pins are reshuffled every 10 minutes and refreshed from Pinterest every hour.

Endless possibilities: For example, you can stay up to date with pins from people you follow (just log in to your Pinterest account and use pins from the main page). To keep up with what’s popular on Pinterest, use the “popular” category. How about some vacation ideas? The “Travel & Places” category is perfect for that.

More ideas: You could start to collect pins on boards specifically for your desktop background depending on your mood, the season, inspiration, vacation ideas, and so on. Be creative and let us know what you come up with!

No Pinterest account required:

- If you just want to test the waters, no problem. The app works just fine without a Pinterest account. You can use pins from all categories and other Pinterest users.


Desktop Pins is an independent app and not affiliated with Pinterest.

My Favorite App!

I have a Lot of apps; so to state this is my Favorite, is really saying something. Everytime I open my Macbook, I am greeted by 6 assorted pins - for me, I am into photography and motivational quotes. And every single time, it brings a smile to my face!

Comparatively, I have a number of game apps and they bring me a combination of smiles and stress. I am sure that I hold my breath during each round.

So no fancy details with this app - but what it does is priceless!

What a disappointment

FIrst, of all, if you have a retina display, be prepared to have your images really really small.

Second, why only 3 templates? Why can’t I control how many photos I see at a time? I would like to have as many pictures on my desktop, not just a handful. And the closest that comes to being a mural of photos is TILTED! WHY!??! Just make it fullscreen and straight.

Third, it repeats images a lot.


I love the idea of this app though it seems strange that out of my 3,000 + pins it only brings up the same random pick of about fifty each time. I contacted the maker but they didn't address this question. Guess it's just the way it is.
