    @Alexander Mescheryakov fair question! :) Not sure if you're familiar with the Niice.co, but while it has similar functionality to Pinterest, we're designing it with a focus on what professional designers need, and this app is an extension of that approach.

    While Pinterest is an absolutely fantastic site, it has a very wide base of users to consider,and we're just trying to be a bit more specialised :)

    We're ramping up production on the Niice iOS app, which is pretty exciting.

    With the site, I wanted the 'save to moodboard' functionality to feel like you're pointing at a bunch of images and saying "that one, that one, that one... and that one".

    That works pretty well when you have hover states and the like to help out, but for touch devices something similar would require toggling a special 'mode' (aka the iOS Photos app) which I find icky and confusing.

    So I‘m going for more of a 'drag into a bucket' interaction, like with our browser extension. You tap and hold on an image to make the buckets appear, then either drop into the 'active' moodboard (at the top) or 'other...' (which gives you the full list of moodboards to select from. This allows you to save an image in one (relatively) fluid motion, rather than having to tap a bunch of times *per image*.

    What do you think?
