Pinterest wants to be on your new Android Wear

If you’ve been pinning places, it will alert you to these nearby pins

It’s hardly a waiting game when it comes to support for solutions launched at Google’s I/O Conference. First, Razer’s spoken out about its plans to unveil a micro-console for Google Android TV and now, Pinterest wants in on Android Wear.

Less than 24 hours ago, Google launched a software development kit (SDK) for Android Wear at the I/O Conference, which enables developers to make Android wear specific apps.

And Pinterest wasted no time in revealing it will very soon update its visual discovery Android app to be compatible with Android Wear. It’s clearly got a head start.   

But we don’t see why Pinterest, or any other interactive platform for that matter, has any reason not to jump on the Android Wear bandwagon immediately.

It's all about Android Wear

Undoubtedly, Android Wear’s the in thing at the moment, and to substantiate that claim, three vendors have inaugurated Android Wear smartwatches at Google I/O (if you didn’t already know).

How Pinterest for Android Wear works, is very simple. If you’ve been actively using the application and have pinned places to the app, it will prompt you of these pinned places when you are near it either on your Android tablet, smartphone, or smartwatch.

It’ll even give you directions to the pinned spot, a good idea just in case you get lost but it doesn’t make sense considering you’re actually supposed to be near the place, does it?

The update, named version 3.0, will be available on the Play Store sometime tomorrow. We think it’s a bit too quick considering plenty of people have yet to get any of the Android Wear smartwatches strapped on their arms.
