The new app has a few new features, including a new permanent menu across the bottom of the screen that makes the app easier to navigate. The previous version of the app featured a menu bar that slid out from the left hand side of the screen.
The app also includes shortcuts for sharing and locating related boards. Users can simply tap and hold down on a pin they like, and a small menu will pop up that enables users to share that pin, or search for other related content.
Ahead of the holidays, Pinterest announced that users could have three additional “secret boards” for planning holiday or gift ideas. Those three secret boards are now included on the iPad app, bringing the total number of secret boards for each user to six.
Like Pinterest’s mobile app, which was updated for iOS 7 in October, the new iPad app has some slight design changes like shadowing and transitions that are new for the operating system.
The new iPad app is available now in the App Store.
