Updated Pinterest brings pricing, availability, ingredients and movie ratings to pins

pinterestPinterest has been hard at work partnering with different companies to implement a set of new features that are sure to excite users of the social network. Last week we also saw a large Pinterest app update that finally brought push notifications among other features, but this one brings something very different: pricing, availability, ingredients and movie ratings to pins. Here is the iTunes change log:

What’s New in Version 2.4.2

– Your pins have more info like pricing, availability, ingredients and movie ratings

Version 2.4.2 brings with it more information available to see when in the pins, and also is releasing a new “Pin It” button for 3rd parties to take advantage of, and some already do. Here is the change log from Pinterest’s blog, which offers a little more information on the update:

To start off, we worked with some popular websites to show more information on some pins, so you can do more of what you love. You might see:

Product pins for things like clothes and furniture with pricing, availability, and where to buy (updated every day!)

Recipe pins from your favorite bloggers and websites that include cook time, ingredients, and servings

Movie pins with content ratings, cast members, and more

What do you think? Are you a fan of the new features? Think it is something that will be oft used? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
