Pinterest SDK integrates in iOS apps

step : 1 Register for a Client ID from here
step : 2 Install the SDK 
The SDK is a cocoapod, so you’ll need a podfile for your app before you begin. To install the SDK:
  1. Open your Podfile and add the following dependency in the target “<your-app>” do section:
    pod “PinterestSDK”, :git => “”
  2. OR
  3. pod "PinterestSDK", :git => ""
  4. Save your Podfile.
  5. Run pod install from the command line. You've now installed the iOS SDK.

step : 3 Configure Xcode
You’ll need to configure .plist on your project in order to redirect back to your app after authentication. Do this by adding a URL scheme to your .plist.
In Xcode, right-click your .plist and select Open As > Source Code. Copy and paste the following code inside the <dict>...</dict>, replacing {your-app-id} with your App ID.

step : 4 Configure the PDK Client

Finally, you’ll need to link your App ID to the PDK Client in your app.

[PDKClient configureSharedInstanceWithAppId:@"12345"];

step : 5 To use the Pinterest framework you will need to import it into your file.
 #import "PDKPin.h"

step : 6 To use the standard PinIt Button in a view add it as so:

UIButton *pinItButton = [UIButton buttonWithType:UIButtonTypeSystem];
pinItButton.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = NO;
[pinItButton setTitle:NSLocalizedString(@"PinIt", nil) forState:UIControlStateNormal];
[pinItButton addTarget:self action:@selector(pinItButtonTapped:) forControlEvents:UIControlEventTouchUpInside];
[self.view addSubview:pinItButton];
step : 7 You will need to handle the action an example of this is below:

- (void)pinItButtonTapped:(UIButton *)button

  [PDKPin pinWithImageURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@""]
                   link:[NSURL URLWithString:@""]
                   note:@"The Pinterest Logo"
     NSLog(@"successfully pinned pin");

             andFailure:^(NSError *error)
            NSLog(@"pin it failed");


Note : If plist file was missing the BundleDisplayName. In order to solve this problem you just need to add it to the plist file.
