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

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
For the first time, search your bookmarks from within iOS' Spotlight Search, available in iOS 9.

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.

Shared Links
Enable the Pinner Shared Links extension from Safari and see your latest 200 bookmarks directly in your browser, with no need to open the app.

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.

Follow users on, then view their latest bookmarks through the Network section. Log in to your account quickly and easily with support for the 1Password extension.

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 now 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.

Apple Watch
Pinner for Apple Watch brings bookmark discovery to your wrist.

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.

Customer Reviews

Very polished and frequently updated

Very nice client for the Pinboard API. They've added a number of clever new features with iOS 9. The shared links extension (which shows your recent bookmarks inside iOS Safari) is a bit of brilliance, and their 3D Touch support is well done. They have two separate share sheet extensions, one which allows you to edit the bookmark before adding and an quick-pin one that adds instantly, and both can be customized with in-app settings. This is clearly the best way to bookmark on iOS.

This One

The core reasons Pinner is an essential tool haven't changed:

Pinner's elegant user interface reflects the ease, power and simplicity of Pinboard; the best way to bookmark the web.

Pinner is actively developed. The consistent update history tells the story, along with the most recent iOS 9 features.

Pinner happens to (still) be one of the most reasonably priced on the app store, compared to the few iOS counterparts that come close to the mark. However, if a price could be put on value, Pinner would cost more.

Note: Since my first review of Pinner in 2013, several reviewers, who write about iOS as their day jobs, now recommend it. The Sweet Setup (by Shawn Blanc and friends) lists Pinner as the best Pinboard app on the App store. And Federico Viticci (MacStories) also gives it glowing reviews.

Reliable and now with much better sharing extension

I’ve used this app for years. It does the job, never crashes. I'd still like a multi-line option for editing the title of a pinboard post, it can be hard to edit long default titles.

Does a better job of updating local store with Pinboard throttling policies.

Love spotlight integration.
