Pinspiration is now Scrapbook for Pinterest

The most popular Pinterest app for Windows Phone and Windows 8/RT is rebranding. The family of apps formerly known as Pinspiration are being renamed to Scrapbook for Pinterest on Windows Phone and Scrapbook for Pinterest on Windows 8. The rebranding is occurring due to a friendly conversation we had with the Pinterest  team about potential user confusion about the origin of the app with our previous name. We’ve added engaging new features to both apps as part of this rebrand which are shown off below.

Scrapbook on Windows Phone

A key new feature we’ve added to Scrapbook for Pinterest on Windows Phone is showing more content from the board an item was pinned from. So whenever you see an interesting pin that catches your eye such as a cool motorcycle or some great pictures from your favorite TV show, you now get a peek of what other similar items the user has pinned and can then browse directly to them.

Scrapbook on Windows 8/RT

Fans of Pinterest on Windows 8 are in luck because Scrapbook for Pinterest on Windows 8 just got a ton of new features. The first new feature is the addition of the Gifts section of Pinterest to the app. Now you can find great gift ideas at a variety of price ranges or just do some windows shopping from the comfort of your couch.

Another fun new feature we’ve added is the same one we just announced for our Windows Phone app. You can now see more content from the board an item was pinned from when looking at a pin. Check it out in the screenshot below

Finally we just added our most requested feature, the ability to pin and browse your secret boards on Pinterest.
