My Tiles–Shell in a Shell app for Windows 8 in the Store

image

You know like they say, life is full of surprises, this app is another one of those examples. Microsoft built Windows 8 with the premise of ease of use, but then some people were complaining of lack of customization of the Start Screen wallpaper except the one that came with Windows 8 that some people were finding rather boring. So here came this app My Tiles that purports to fill the gap left in Start Screen. Its an Shell in a Shell. In this shell however, you are Lord and King. You can setup your tiles the way you want, and what’s more, you tiles can have picture backgrounds etc. I don’t think I am able to aptly describe this app until you see it for yourselves, and the worst thing is the vendor himself is lazy in describing the app, he tacitly described it as follows: “Custom Tiles Make allows you to create custom tiles for your Windows 8”. That’s it, just one line nothing further. But unfortunately, it didn’t describe the vendor’s effort because this seems to be a good app for those looking for more in the Start Screen. They say a picture is worth than a thousand words, maybe these screenshots will help:

If eye-candy is your thing, and you’re unsatisfied with current Start Screen implementation from Microsoft, then this is what you need. It’s a free App, for now at least, so you can least give it a spin and see if its for you. Download via the Source Link.

  1. i was hoping that i could make tiles for programs i have with this but it seems to only make pictures :/ is there anything out there that i can do that with?

  2. The version 1 was the “Custom Tiles Maker”. Updated to 1.2.
    This is version 2.0 Same ap, but a new buy if you want the “all tiles pack”.

    Personally, I will wait for a 3.0 or 4.0. I cant buy the same app every time there is a major update. :(

    • Aha, didn’t know that. I guess the Dev need to earn money for their efforts, and I know MS has anticipated situations like this, I just wonder if the Dev is aware of the possibility available for them to earn money instead of re-releasing the same app under a different name.
