Incredibly, this Pinterest app still gets updated for Windows 10 Mobile
Long live Piny.
What you need to know
- "Piny - Pinterest with love" is a third-party Pinterest app for Windows.
- Piny just received a Windows 10 Mobile update.
- No, seriously.
As spotted by All About Windows Phone, there is a Windows 10 Mobile Pinterest client that's still receiving updates and love in 2021. Its name is Piny (full name: Piny - Pinterest with love).
Not many developers bother with Universal Windows Platform (UWP) initiatives for Windows 10 Mobile in 2021, so the few that do are noteworthy simply because of how rare they are. In this case, credit is due to Chococode, the developer behind Piny, for keeping the wholesome Pinterest-fueled fun alive on Windows 10 Mobile.
According to All About Windows Phone, Piny UWP offers the option to pay £4 to get rid of ads if you're so inclined. Though many people are inherently opposed to in-app purchases of any kind, it might be worth considering in the case of Chococode. After all, who else is giving Windows 10 Mobile users the time of day?
This isn't the only recent news circulating about Pinterest. In late February, it became possible to place Pinterest pins inside OneNote and Word. And there was also a report in February claiming that Microsoft had tried to acquire Pinterest at one point.
Though there's not much to say about Windows 10 Mobile at the moment outside of Chococode's impressive dedication to Piny, there's still plenty to say about Windows 10 apps in general. If you're curious, here are some of the best Windows 10 apps of 2021.
