The Houzz app is the Pinterest of home design. You explore pictures of home design ideas, add them to your own lists, and share your own ideas with others to see. You can talk to other people about your home design ideas or ask for help. The pictures also link to where you can purchase the exact item that appears in the picture. It has a large social media aspect to it that Pinterest doesn’t have.
DudePins is exactly Pinterest for guys. Pinterest really pulls in the female crowd so someone decided that men should get a site that caters to them specifically. At DudePins, manly men can explore and share pics, videos, websites, and more with other guys with similar interests. Of course, women can use the app, too, just like men can use Pinterest, but DudePins focuses more on things men love. Search for products, DIY ideas, sports, news, and more.
PearlTrees is very similar to Pinterest but just with a different design. Users find and collect pictures, videos, documents, websites, and more into collections. You can then find other people who have similar collections to yours and explore what they have to share. The app automatically tells you about people with similar collections to make finding things easier. The images are shared in circles so that’s where the name “pearl” comes from.
WeHeartIt is another Pinterest copy with its own design and twist. Just like Pinterest, users can share images that they love. WeHeartIt seems to focus more on artistic pictures whereas Pinterest has become a place to share links to other sites. At WeHeartIt you can share a link to where you found the image, but it seems to focus more on enjoying the pictures as opposed to sharing links to learn more. If you like looking at beautiful pictures of almost anything then you will enjoy WeHeartIt.
Fancy is Pinterest for shoppers. Users explore the site to find unique items from well-known brands and little-known brands. You can then save your finds for later or go ahead and purchase them right away. Of course, you can also share your own finds with others on Fancy. If you find an item that isn’t on Fancy yet you can add it yourself and help the brand grow. Fancy also shows you the best deals for the products you love and often has lists of items for sale.
Similar to Fancy, Product Hunt is another Pinterest-like site for finding products and items to purchase. The setup is different for Product Hunt in that it lists new products based on submission whereas Fancy seems to stick to showing you the most popular items. Product Hunt is great for promoting your own products. Share your products in one of the many categories and other users will see it and perhaps take an interest in purchasing it.
Dribble is the Pinterest for designers. Whether you do graphic designs, illustrations, web design, or typography, Dribble will help you share it with the world. You share your own work with others and then go ahead and explore to see what others are working on. You might get new ideas or someone might help you out with a problem on your own design. Even people who don’t do designs themselves can use Dribble to find designers to work on projects with them.
Wanelo stands for Want, Need, Love. The site and app bills itself as a giant mall on your phone. You explore hundreds of thousands of stores from big brands to small brands to find products you love. You can then purchase them or share them on your Wanelo page just like you would on Pinterest. Users can also sell their own items on Wanelo to help boost their brands. It is a great way to find lesser known stores that carries products you never dreamed existed.
