Pins 3 will be a complete rewrite. I’m busy building the new API in Golang and they’re going to be blazingly fast. The new app (both Mac and iOS) will be a rewrite in Swift. The timeline is still long (talking about a year probably) but having the new API will allow us to have a Mac, and iOS and even a Web App (so windows users will be able to use Pins from the web if they want). There will be just one user account for all platforms and there will be no more synching or duplicates. Everything will instantly be available on all your copies of Pins. The new version is going to blow your minds… I promise.
In the mean time I’m still busy with Pins 2 both fixing bugs and adding features. I just wanted to give an update on what is to come 🙂
The new API will probably be the first thing that will be in production and one of the coming 2.x versions of Pins might switch to that already so that syncing and duplicate nightmares will be a thing of the past. If you have any feedback or questions please let me know.
Have a great day guys and enjoy using Pins!
