I’m going to be a bit of a brat in this new series, wherein I complain about first world problems — AKA things I should be grateful I have access to but annoy me anyway.
First up: a new problem with Pinterest. This one’s much more serious than the last.
We’re off to a great start.
I updated my Pinterest app, because I hate seeing that little red circle notification. (It’s a whole ‘nother story). This update included a new feature, where you can scroll to see related pins. Sounds super, right? WRONG.
Say you’re browsing pins on oh, I don’t know … a handheld device … like the iPhone, the same one you just updated because of App Store’s incessant red circle?
And, maybe you can’t see the entire pin, because some are long and others have lots of words (and have I mentioned you’re viewing a small-scale screen?).
So you click the pin to view it full-screen. But, now there’s a box notifying you to scroll down to see related pins. OK, got it.
Thanks for that helpful tip, Pinterest!
Wait, why won’t the box go away? Clicking it opens the pin’s URL (which we all know is about 60 percent effective at being a helpful link).
Yep, I got it.
SERIOUSLY, GO AWAY.
Scroll up, scroll down … the box is still there. WTF, Pinterest!
I hadn’t even realized you could (accidentally) scroll any which way, because I was so aggravated by the big, dumb box.
Despite scouring help articles and FAQs and the almighty Google, I can’t find a solution. What’s this first world coming to?!
Pinterest’s iTunes page. It’s full of lies.
