pinterest-androidMuch of the dust at Google I/O 2014 has settled, and there is still plenty to digest on what has been announced. Well, for folks who cannot get enough of Pinterest, here is a little something for you – Pinterest has revealed a brand new feature for those who happen to rock on to Android-powered devices which will make its appearance on Pinterest for Android v3.0 that is all set to roll out tomorrow.

Basically, you will be notified whenever you happen to be within the vicinity of a place where you’ve Pinned. Not only that, assuming you are one of the early adopters (who hopefully will not suffer from a sour taste in the mouth later on due to circumstances that are out of your control) of an Android-powered wearable device, you will also see your piece of wearable tech be on the receiving end of a similar notification, now how about that?

Take for instance, conjuring a board for venues to watch the World Cup, or perhaps all of the must-see places that you have dreamed up for the upcoming vacation. Assuming you are walking close to one of the sports bars or must-see sites that have been Pinned prior, you will then be alerted via a notification on your Android device, giving you a gentle reminder so that you can make that decision as to return to check it out, or otherwise. If you are in a foreign country with no idea on how make out the signs on the streets, fret not – your Android wearable or smartphone will offer step-by-step directions. [Press Release]
