Pinterest has just made it easier for iOS device users to search, find, and view Pins on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. A new feature, “Guided Search,” has been added to the Pinterest iOS app, and this is designed to help users either refine what they’re looking for or gain ideas from the Pinterest community.
Now, when Pinterest users perform a search on their iOS device, related terms will appear in a horizontal scroll bar along the top of the Pinterest app. Touching individual terms bundles them onto your search, allowing “tent” to easily be added alongside “camping” or “cappuccino” next to “coffee,” for example.
It’s a smart addition, and users should definitely find the change to be useful. For a better idea of how Pinterest’s Guided Search works, check out the below video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyYVI0ySDvk#t=86

In a recent blog post, Pinterest explains:
Now when you search for something (road trips, running, summer BBQ), descriptive guides will help you sift through all the good ideas from other Pinners. Scroll through the guides and tap any that look interesting to steer your search in the right direction.
You can start taking advantage of Guided Search from inside Pinterest’s recently updated iOS application. As before, Pinterest can be downloaded free of charge on the App Store, and it’s optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
