Pinterest opens developer sandbox for API access, inspiring new apps

It's been a busy time for Pinterest as the San Francisco-based company recently boasted it recently surpassed a major milestone in attracting 100 million monthly active users.

Pinterest is launching a new sandbox for developers, bringing them closer to the social network's API with the hopes of spurring new apps and other products.

The sandbox establishment follows up this year's debut of the Pinterest Developers Platform, a suite of APIs encouraging developers to "bring Pins to life" by crafting and weaving together app integrations for making billions upon billions of Pins valuable in more ways than one.

It's been a busy time for Pinterest as the San Francisco-based company recently boasted it recently surpassed a major milestone in attracting 100 million monthly active users.

Pinterest touted on Thursday that its developer community has already submitted more than 5,000 ideas for apps and integrations, touching on everything from gift registries to recipe recommendation to travel planning.

The Pinterest developer sandbox is now open for review. When apps are ready for a public launch, developers can submit them for review and approval.

Further details about accessing and deploying the Pinterest API as well as software development kits are available on the official Pinterest blog.
