Android developers can create applications with Pinterest's Pin It button SDK. Version 1.3 allows one to create content inside an app with a few lines of Java code. Because the content is visual, developers should be aware that 2 types of images are supported: image URL and image URI. To work with the SDK, users can register a Client ID. The files consist of the library: pinit-sdk-1.0.jar, the java doc: pinit-sdk-1.0-javadoc.jar, the zipped api doc: apidocs.zip, the Pinterest main apk that works with the Pin It feature: pinterest-release.apk, and the demo project using the SDK's Pin It feature: PinItDemo.zip. The SDK could be used to engage Android users with the Pin It button.
