I admit that I am not much of a Social Networker myself beyond Facebook. That is why I was not overly excited to learn from Andre that Pinwall had been updated but it is definitely worth mentioning. We covered Pinwall’s update to version 1.1 but since then it has been updated twice. Most BlackBerry Social Networks have never taken off and developers lose interest but Pinwall seems to be going on strong. Check out the change log below for the updates. It looks like they are definitely working on improving the experience at Pinwall.
