Facebook made a Pinterest clone app named Hobbi

Facebook’s New Product Experimentation team has released a new app called “Hobbi” – and oddly enough, it appears to be a Pinterest clone. Advertised as “the one-stop app for all your personal projects,” the app allows you to “capture and organize your creative process,” much like Pinterest. Also similar to Pinterest, Hobbi also incorporates the use of image collections. Suggested uses for the app include crafts, baking, home decor, and fitness, according to its page on the App Store.

The app itself is quite simple, with limited editing capabilities. TechCrunch describes it as an “editor and organizer” for documenting projects. What sets it apart from Pinterest is the ability to track progress using the app’s collections feature. Hobbi can also be used to create “process” videos of projects upon completion. It lacks a social element, and it is currently unclear as to whether one will be implemented.

The New Product Experimentation team came to life last summer to introduce new apps to Facebook – even if they don’t make too much sense. So far, it’s produced a meme-maker named Whale, a DJ app named Aux, and a chat app named Bump. Don’t recognize any? That’s reasonable, as none of these apps have achieved any significant success. Facebook has previously said it’ll ax apps that don’t do well, and “expect many failures” from the team. Facebook has already shut down the “Whale” app.

Hobbi is available on iOS and iPadOS devices running version 11.0 or later. It’s available in the U.S, Belgium, Columbia, Spain, and Ukraine.
