Pinterest Bookmarklet for iPad

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to setup the Pinterest bookmarklet on your Apple iPad.

We will need to create a bookmark and then go back and edit the bookmark to include the JavaScript code for the Pinterest bookmarklet. The steps that we will be following are similar to other tutorials on this site — only we will be inserting the code for Pinterest.

Install the Pinterest bookmarklet on the iPad

We will complete the following steps via the iPad.

Prepare your Apple iPad & open this tutorial in mobile Safari

  • From your iPad, go to “Settings” and tap on “Safari.” Set Show Favorites Bar to “ON.” Set Block Cookies to “Never.” Tap “Advanced” and set JavaScript to “ON.”
  • Next, open the Safari app and open this current page (go to and search for “Pinterest” and select the tutorial for the iPad).
  • Now copy the code in the section (Pinterest bookmarklet code)

Create a temporary bookmark in mobile Safari

Next, tap on the share icon (square with arrow) at the top of your Safari page and tap “Bookmark.” Ensure that it will be saving to the “Favorites” and then tap “Save.”

Update the temporary bookmark with the code for the bookmarklet

  1. Now tap on the bookmark icon (open book) to pull up your bookmarks. Tap on the “Favorites” folder. Then tap “Edit” in the corner of your window.
  2. Select the bookmark that you just created. Change the name to something of your choice – perhaps ‘Pinterest’ or ‘Pinterest Pin it button’.
  3. Next, erase the URL shown and paste the bookmarklet code for Pinterest (press and hold, then release, then tap “Paste”).
  4. Tap “Favorites” located in the bottom top left corner to go back. Tap “Done” located in the corner. Tap the bookmark icon to make it disappear.

Those are all the steps! You’ve now installed the Pinterest bookmarklet on your Apple iPad.

    I followed this step for step but it hasn’t put a bookmarklet on top of my page, what went wrong?

    • Lorenzo Orlando Caum

      Be sure that you have bookmarks bar on. If not, then the pin it bookmark may have ended up somewhere else in your bookmarks.

    Can not erase URL and paste new. Any suggestions?

    • Lorenzo Orlando Caum

      You have to save the original bookmark. Then go back and edit it afterwards.

    I needed this so bad! I found a recipe online and when I tapped the pin it button on the page it did a totally different picture! With this bookmarklet I was able to choose a picture! Yay. Thanks!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any
    recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

    Havee you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring on oother websites?
    I have a blog centered on the same topics you discuss and would
    really like to have you share some stories/information. I know
    my viewers would enjoy your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to send me
    an e-mail.
