Pinterest has just launched an update to their iOS app that brings two important functional features to the app and one minor, but fun cosmetic improvement to the iPad.

With today's update, you can now edit your profile inside the app - something that was a long time coming.

Individual pin pages have also received a tuneup to help promote discovery. Scroll down to the bottom of a pin page to see the new "people who pinned this also pinned" section.

This "people who pinned this also pinned" feature is the same one that Pinterest recently rolled out on desktop. It was part of a larger rollout of their brand new UI redesign that they said was all about discovery. Individual pin pages on desktop now feature pins from the same board and pins from the same source alongside “people who pinned this also pinned.”

The desktop redesign also brought bigger pins, better browsing, and more.

You can get a more detailed (close-up) look at your pins with the new iOS app as well, but only on iPad.

You can grab the new Pinterest app from iTunes today.
