Pinterest has finally launched a Windows Phone app. But like many Windows Phone apps, there's a catch: It's only a beta version.
This means that while Windows Phone pinners get all the basics of Pinterest, the app is not nearly as full-featured as its iOS and Android counterparts.
At this point, the app basically provides an easy shortcut to the mobile-web version of Pinterest, with a few native features thrown in, a Pinterest spokesperson told Mashable.
So while users can follow friends, pin new posts and take advantage of most Pinterest.com features, they won't have many of the tools that the iOS and Android apps include, such as a notifications menu and guided search, which rolled out to Pinterest's web users on Wednesday.
Pinterest worked with Microsoft to develop the app. Joe Belfiore, Microsoft's head of Windows Phone, welcomed the service to the platform on Wednesday morning.
Those hoping for a more robust Windows Phone offering can look forward to future updates, which will likely bring more functionality to the app. The team behind Pinterest for Windows Phone said it will continue to make improvements to the app based on user feedback.
