As you're probably well aware, Apple just released the big iOS 8 update. Pinterest announced that its app has some new functionality that takes advantage of it.

You can now add the Pin It button to your iPhone, and pin things right from the mobile browser.

"Now the Pin It button is always just a tap away," the company says in a blog post. "Reading a must-save article? Found that desk chair you’ve been hunting for? Go back to the Share button, tap your new Pin It button, swipe to find the best image, and Pin it."

"Then get right back to what you were doing—your new Pin will be waiting for you in the Pinterest app," it adds.

To take advantage, you'll simply need to download the app and update to iOS 8 (obviously), then from Safari or Chrome, tap the share button, swipe to the left and tap more. From there, you can tap to turn on Pinterest, and then drag it up if you want to reorder the menu.
