Official apps joining Windows Phone for the first time make us very happy. We've had a few third-party apps for Pinterest, but nothing official over the past few years. That changes today! Everyone, let's officially welcome Pinterest to Windows Phone.

Pinterest is a highly popular visual discovery tool and 'virtual' pinboard. It allows users to create, share and organization collections called boards. Those boards usually have a theme, like dream vacations.

Pinterest ( is joining Windows Phone in beta form today. Here's what we get with this first release:

  • 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


We've just installed Pinterest for Windows Phone and have been poking around with it. We'll admit we're not the biggest Pinterest users, but this is a nice app and we're sure fans of the service will love it. Look for a hands-on later, but for now take it for a spin and let us know what you think!
