Developed by Adam Rotman in Toronto, Pin A Quote’s premise is simple: it allows users to highlight any text on the web and post it directly to Pinterest as an image. There’s a straightforward free version and now a Pro version ($1.99), which enables custom fonts and colours.
A hobby project for now, Adam says that the Pro version is designed to recoup developments costs. Of course, profitability would be nice, although that may require extending beyond Pinterest. “I think there are bigger applications for this concept,” he told me.
