This post will show you How to Use Pinterest Secret Boards.

Following server maintenance last Tuesday, Pinterest introduced a new “secret boards” feature which limits visibility to only the creator and any collaborators they may invite on Thursday.

Private boards can be switched from “off” to “on” one time before it becomes permanent. But, unfortunately, you can’t hide existing boards because others may have already repinned from your board.

How to Pin to Secret Boards via Pinterest Web

  • When using Pinterest from the web, go to your profile page. Scroll down to the bottom and “Create a Secret Board.”
  • Another way to do it is to click “Add+” from the top right-hand corner of Pinterest and turn the Secret button On.

How to Pin to Secret Boards via Pinterest Mobile App

  • Visit your profile, select the “Boards” tab and scroll down until you see “Create a Secret Board.”

Yep, that’s it!

Evernote 5 for iOS is coming soon!
The Evernote team provided us with an early look of what’s to be expected in Evernote 5 on iOS.

We have some exciting news. Evernote’s team of developers and designers have spent months rethinking our app to make it as fast, uncluttered, and easy to use as possible. The result is the all new Evernote 5 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It’s a beautiful, re-imagined experience that puts everything you need no more than two taps away.

Evernote 5 for iOS - New User Interface

Evernote 5 for iOS Features

  • New Home Screen with updated Notebook UI & Access to Notestacks on iPad
  • Easy Access to create Quick Notes, take Quick Snapshots, and utilize the Page Camera
  • Easy access to premium features

I really love the way greater focus is given to the new note and photo capture buttons. The ‘notebook’, ‘tag’, and ‘places’ sections are now tabbed below the new note buttons with a cool new folder style user interface. And the fact that notes, notebooks, and notestacks are now distinguishable is a great boost in usability.
