Slowly and steadily, major high profile apps are making their entry on the Windows Phone Store. Now, Pinterest has joined the club with the official app being available for the platform. The app is still in beta, but that shouldn’t be an issue for users who have been waiting for the app to hit the store. The beta app allows all the major functions that can be done through the Pinterest website.
Sadly, that is pretty is pretty much it, with the app being more or less a shortcut to the mobile version of the website. It lacks the deep integration found in iOS and Android versions. Here’s what the app allows you to do:
- Plan projects: home remodels, car restorations, garden redesigns and other DIYs
- Dream up your next trip: outdoor adventures, road trips with friends, family outings and exotic vacations
- Collect your favorite things: illustrations, tattoo ideas, hilarious quotes, tech gadgetry and inspiring art and architecture
- Save great ideas: articles to read, movies to watch, gifts to buy, fashion and beauty how-tos, food and recipes to cook, fitness tips and lifehacks
- Get organized for a party: wedding decor, birthday themes, costume ideas and game day menus
Given that the project is still in beta and will be looking for community feedback to improve, we expect future versions to be much better and enhanced than the first version. For now, let’s just be content with the fact that the app is available for the third biggest mobile platform.
