Pinterest mobile: now with GIFs

Pinterest mobile for iOS (s aapl) and Android (s goog) both received updates today — the most noteworthy of which is the ability to view GIFs on both iPhone and Android smartphones. According to the company’s engineering blog, the feature allows users to pin GIFs directly, which will show up in feeds with a small play button. GIFs can then be played via mobile, shared and repinned across platforms. The iPad version was also updated, including support for place pins.
