The App lets you share photos directly from your camera or gallery, re-pin follower pin, like or comment to any pins or let them save to your device. You can access your profile, app settings, find Facebook friends and other options from the Profile activity.

The app requires Android 2.2 or greater and can be downloaded from below widget.
I know that the Android app’s description says that you can “Pin what you love from around the web,” but how does one do that?? I can only see the way, as you described, to add photos from your phone.
You can do share the webpage using Intent.
For e.g open any page in firefox for Android, hit menu button and then ‘Share’ button and you’ll see ‘Create Pin’ option in the Intent service list.
