Pushpin Reclaims iOS Pinboard Crown With Awesome 3.0 Update

Today brings a big update for users of Pushpin, the already-excellent Pinboard bookmarking client for iOS. V 3.0 brings a sweet iOS-friendly look (it really does look great), plus a proper iPad interface, plus… well, a lot. Let’s taker a quick look.

The hot new looks will win you over first, but the app has a lot more under the hood. The interface make it easier to use, with flat, bright, color-coded labels to let you see what’s what, and clean typography to let you read your bookmarked articles.

The other big new feature is full-text search. If you have a paid Pinboard archival account, you can now search on the full text of any of your bookmarked pages, as well as on title and tags.

You can also use Pushpin as a read-later app, and it’ll mark your unread articles as read when you’ve, uh, read them, and bookmarking those links in the first place is still easy thanks to the tag suggestion and super-fast launch.

I go between this and Pincase on my iPad. I have both installed, and bookmarklets for them both in Mobile Safari. But with this update, Pushpin has edged out Pincase as my favorite search app.

Pushpin 3.0 is $10, or free to existing users.
