  • Share extension is now available from within many more apps
  • Fix for several crashing bugs

1.3.0 - October 3rd, 2014

  • iOS 8 Share Extension: You can now save pages to pinboard in any app that uses the system share menu.
  • Intelligent suggestion of bookmark title and description. Suggestions are shown as placeholders so that a user can easily overwrite them. Swiping left allows the user to clear the suggestion, while swiping right allows a user to “accept” the suggestion and then edit
    • User can choose (via Settings) for suggested titles to be automatically shortened based on page metadata. When enabled, title “junk” like domain names is removed
    • User can choose (via Settings) when a description is suggested.
  • New tagging system displays suggested tags inline and allows a user to quickly add all suggested tags
  • Support for canonical URLs: If turned on, Pinswift will bookmark and share the canonical URL specified in a page (if it exists) instead of the page URL. Many sites with separate desktop and mobile sites have their canonical URLs setup so that a page on the mobile site has a canonical URL pointing to the desktop site. This setting (hopefully) allows one to save and share the desktop version of a page without have to resort to editing the URL
