We made a lot of improvements to how Pincone looks on your mobile phones. The navigation bar and the page title and actions have been merged into one. It now looks a lot cleaner and more content can fit on your screen.
This doesn't concern people who already use Pincone, but for newcomers we added a nice onboarding tutorial with smooth videos to help you make sense of where things live inside Pincone.
When you sign up, you'll now need to verify your email address. This was something we wanted to get right out of the gate, but alas, other things got in the way. This should prevent an influx of spam accounts on our platform making it more secure and faster for everyone.
For people who have a lot of links, items coming through your feeds would sometimes have dozens of labels attached to them. We fixed this so it doesn't overwhelm you anymore.
When you scrolled your sidebar and then tapped on your user card to get to your settings, it wouldn't scroll you back up. Well, now it does!

When ingesting content from feeds, we realized some links weren't being scraped properly and you would see just a URL which wasn't very nice. With our latest batch of improvements, you should now see better content coming through the feeds.
