I’ve realized {that a} Pinterest widget will roll out large on iOS 14 immediately, and reader, I’m elated.

I’ve been an enthusiastic Pinner for years, sometimes for design concepts that I then try to duplicate on a price range, being that I, myself, do not need limitless cash for issues like residence enchancment. However I do get plenty of concepts there that I’m capable of hack on a budget, and in my pleasure about this newly announced widget, I shared the information with my colleagues solely to be taught that I could be the one one that really provides a shit about Pinterest—at the least among the many Gizmodo employees, whose opinions on this app are improper and unhealthy.

Now, I get that Pinterest typically litters Google pictures search, a factor lots of my esteemed colleagues discover rage-inducing—which, certain. One other grievance was that whereas Pinterest is nice for, say, surfacing make-up types, it’s ineffective with regards to serving to you really execute the look. That isn’t what Pinterest is for! If I’m on the lookout for a particular form of furnishings design, I troll Pinterest for concepts earlier than heading to a website like YouTube to indicate me tips on how to construct it. Pinterest is merely a digital temper board—a method to an finish, because it have been. It’s an imperfect service, certain, however it’s an extremely helpful concepts instrument.

That is all a long-winded means of claiming that I, for one, will completely be including the Pinterest widget to my residence display just like the deranged crafter I’ve turn out to be in current months—extra so now that there’s not an entire lot else to do and we’re all trapped inside for the following few months as winter rolls in.

Pinterest says the widget is rolling out to everybody immediately, with each giant and small choices accessible. To replace the widget to your most well-liked board, long-press the Pinterest widget, and choose the Edit Widget choice. From there, you’ll additionally have the ability to set the frequency for its tile updates (day by day or hourly). Pinterest advised Gizmodo that you may solely select a single board per widgets, “but when there are sections inside a board, all content material will seem.” You possibly can, moreover, add a number of Pinterest widgets to your own home web page, and if we’re large sincere, I’ve already devoted a full display to my varied DIY boards.

Moreover, whilst you can solely choose considered one of your boards or these of somebody you observe to be featured in your widget, Pinterest stated that it’s “exploring extra functionalities for the long run.”

Blissful crafting to everybody besides my co-workers, apparently.
