Add Link from Camera
You can now add links from the real world by long pressing on the URL field in the Save to Pinboard form and choose the appropriate option. This works like magic - give it a try!
Tweaked the Save to Pinboard form and AutoFill Metadata button so that they automatically prepend “http://“ to the URL you entered if the protocol is missing.— Pins for Pinboard (@GetPinsApp) July 6, 2021
This is an excuse so that in iOS 15 I can finally add a URL from camera. pic.twitter.com/mtLKg1je1p
Quick Note Support
For iPad users, Pins adds support for Quick Note so that you can create a note from within the app by swiping up from the bottom right.
Thoses notes have deep links back to the original bookmark and can be viewed on your other devices.
Fresh from the oven: Better “user activity” handling so that Pins will play nice with iPadOS 15’s Quick Note feature.— Pins for Pinboard (@GetPinsApp) July 3, 2021
Not sure how many people will actually take advantage of it but it sure feels good to be a model OS citizen and make use of new system capabilities. pic.twitter.com/pIs1ydXP0H
XL Widget Size
Other goodie for iPadOS: XL widget size that lets you view more bookmarks on your homescreen.
Drag-and-drop Between iPhone Apps
This has always been supported in iPadOS but now iPhone users can join the fun: Dragging-and-dropping links across apps onto Pins to add them to Pinboard.
It takes some time to get used to, but dragging and dropping links onto Pins to add them to Pinboard totally works. https://t.co/7QYcUEGe2E pic.twitter.com/pgSXCcPPjT— Pins for Pinboard (@GetPinsApp) September 20, 2021
Better Siri Support
Siri can now create reminders from bookmarks and share those links to your friends when you ask them to.
Another tip: You can ask Siri to “remind me of this” while browsing your Pins bookmarks to add the currently viewed link to Reminders. pic.twitter.com/aOxX2dWh7v— Pins for Pinboard (@GetPinsApp) September 20, 2021
