The app is now available in 84 countries, including the US, Australia as well as Canada, according to Sensor Tower and has fewer than 5,000 downloads.

Hobbi's set of features makes it a direct competitor to Pinterest.


According to Hobbi's App Store listing, the app helps hobbyists organize photos of projects into collections, such as gardening, cooking, arts & crafts, fitness, and more.

The Hobbi app, just like Pinterest, organizes a series of photos into collections, making it easier for users to keep a track of their progress over time.

Facebook has added another app to its list of experimental projects from the NPE Team, an initiative launched last summer.


The app is very simple and comes with limited editing options.
