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.

  • I just dropped my Lumia 950 and it wrecked its screen. 😭😭😭
    No more myTube! no more pictures and videos sideshows. No more excellent quality screen streaming!
  • I'm so sorry to hear your plight. I will take care of mine much much more carefully from now on. I also hope MyTube developer recovers speedily from his hand injury so he can keep updating the app.
  • Seems faster. Mytube! is still the bomb!
  • not on PC.
  • MyTube was always one of my first app to download whenever I upgraded my windows phone. I miss the platform
  • Love this story. Miss WP so much.
  • I thought it was a pretty charming bit of news as well. Always nice to see support for things that no longer get much mainstream attention.
  • Bring windows phone back.
  • I will gladly port bact to windows phone if it comes back.
  • WP was still my favorite out of all the phones I had.
  • I still got my 950 laying around somewhere. Good for sextapes lol
  • Thanks for the insights, ninwiito!
  • My Lumia 640 is resting on my drawer, and now I want to wake it up again. Not because of Pinterest, but because I read some comments here, and I just realized I miss the MyTube experience on a mobile device. YouTube's official app is not as smooth and elegant as MyTube in my opinion.
