    My personal favourite for pin scheduling pins and overall automation is PinPinterest (search by name and follow the 1st link). I like to put it all on auto pilot through PinPinterest. It is free, runs online, optimised for mobile devices and you can schedule pins.
    It is intelligent, and so it pins only images relevant to you to your account. Plus it keeps the account ban-safe by running at a human-like speed 🙂
