Pinterest finally arrives on Windows Phone

Slowly, but surely, the app-gap is being filled on Windows Phone, and the latest addition to the platform is one that users have been awaiting for quite some time. Today, Microsoft's Joe Belfiore announced that Pinterest has finally made it to Windows Phone.

Pinterest describes itself as "a tool to help you discover and plan things you want to do". It is essentially a service that allows you to save visual bookmarks - or 'pins' - to create virtual scrapbooks for projects, trips, events, or just particular interests and topics. ​Pinterest also allows users to share their hand-picked collections and ideas with others via their 'pinboards'. 

The new app launches today on Windows Phone as a beta, which means that many features that users expect may not yet be available, and some bugs may still need to be exterminated. Nonetheless, its launch will no doubt be welcomed by many, who have until now had to rely on third-party alternatives such as Scrapbook for Pinterest (formerly Pinspiration). 

You can download Pinterest from the Windows Phone Store (available for WP8 and WP8.1) now.

Katy bar the door... Windows Mobile has finally arrived.

Look out you other mobile phone platforms: There's a new kid in town, and it's name is Pintrest. None of them have this app... er, oh wait.

What's Windows Mobile?

Sorry... It was from back in the days when Microsoft actually beat Apple to the smartphone market. After that, they fell asleep at the switch and woke up to find that the iPhone gobbled up their market share. Microsoft has been playing catch up ever since.

I had a Windows CE-based phone for a long time... all the way up to Windows Mobile 6.5.

This just looks like one of the Microsoft Web Apps that MS was releasing for a while. Probably just made by MS and got the permission to stick the official name in there. Dunno why a wrapper needs a BETA tag though.

Looks like iOS. Where's Metro?

At the same place where the iOS 7 visuals for Skype are. Enjoy.
