About our great project

Pinobo is a creativity application that allows you to create your own social board. The innovative logic and philosophy with which it is designed, allows you to pin, drag, rotate, scaled up or scale down anything on your board and decide the position of each object in a free, two-dimension space. You can decorate your board by pairing photos, images, videos, notes, quotes, links, maps, pins etc, either from your computer or from the web and make a board that reflects your personality. Lastly, you can share your board or your objects (pinables) with your friends any time you wish to, or just keep it for yourself. The corkboard reinvented.

The basic concept is quite simple:
Do you have a corkboard at home?
Have you ever wished you could take it with you?
Well, pinobo digitizes the traditional real-life tool and enhances this experience with video, links and other cool stuff, plus social sharing.

So, we have pinobo, the corkboard reinvented.

FAQ

What is pinobo?

The 1st social board application!

What can I do with pinobo that I can't do with existing applications?

Because of its free form UI you can make your board a "next-generation blog", as you can pin whatever is valuable to you and you will decide how you want to decorate it. Instead of using only pictures or text to express yourself, you can add more stuff at the same time and make it richer in content and feelings. Unleash your creativity and your personality!

What can I make with pinobo?

You can make a rich content collage, a comic book, a board about your interests (sports, movies, music etc), a board about YOU and what you like!

And if I am not a "creative" person?

You can still use pinobo for your own reasons; for example to keep your daily stuff and notes. Remember! Finding your own way to use pinobo is creative by itself!

Will I have to pay to use it?

Nope. Pinobo will be a free application. You will be able, though, to purchase virtual goods or a pro subscription for additional features.

What about the team of pinobo?

Christos first came up with the idea about 2 years ago. He decided to share it with Kostas, and later with Spiros and Apostolis. So, one snowing day of January (2013), all-four of them met at a local coffee spot and began working on the idea. Pinobo is what came out of this. This was not their first project as a team, so they knew how to put everything together and this accelerated the process.
