How to create a Pinterest Application for Revive Old Post

This is a Pro Feature! Purchase the Pro version of  Revive Old Posts here.

NOTE

Pinterest has changed their systems and isn't currently allowing new applications unless reviewed. Only users who previously had Apps are currently able to connect Pinterest.

DO NOT SUBMIT A NEW APP if you're a new user. We've already submitted an app for review by Pinterest so that we can add a seamless account addition like with Facebook & Twitter in Revive Old Posts, but our application is still pending with Pinterest.

Once we hopefully get our App approved we'd be able to add a one-click Pinterest account into ROP. We, unfortunately, have no ETA on when this will happen as we have received no info from Pinterest.

At this time it is not possible to connect Pinterest unless you previously had a Pinterest app.
