Best way to customize Start Menu

Using the Noun Project and Adobe Illustrator and this app, now any website I regularly visit is easily accessible from the start menu, and I don't have a bunch of random browser logos on my start screen. Really well done.

Very useful, wish it could suggest images for tiles

The app works perfect. It quickly creates live tiles (even displaying extra info about Steam games when you pin them) and they work great. However, not all the Steam images fit well for live tiles of all sizes, and the user is left to browse for one of their own on the computer. It would be ideal if the user could choose from a series of "suggested" pictures from the internet, right within the app. For example: display screenshots from the Steam store, or show up the image results of a Google search, ready to choose which one you want to use for the tile. This would make it a 5/5 (I've seen other apps doing this in the past).

I like it!

The app really expands on the primary functionality of the start screen/menu. I was using shortcuts to steam.exe with different game ids tacked on, but this feels much more stable, plus the ability to use multiple custom images makes the tiles just cool to look at. Lost a star for a couple things, namely the inability to pin .exe's through the app. Also .ico support would be nice since it doesn't automatically find images for small tiles and I already have icons for every game. Also the interface needs tooltips.

Pretty good

Works great, currently the best workaround to make your start menu not look disgusting. An unfortunate side effect of some change in Windows 10 is that it has to open up a window really quick to open the program you choose, but it's just something you have to live with.

must have for attractive desktop ocd types

The great advantage over other Steam tile apps I've tried is that Pin More closes itself after the game launches. With Steam Tiles you have to close it manually. Being able to add GoG, Uplay, Battlenet, and Origin is also great.

Incredible

I love this app. Making personal tiles, some of which are live and give site updates (depending on the site), is terrific. Thank you.

Surprisingly Useful!

I was surprised by this app, and once I started thinking about was to use it, fell in love with it. For example, the official Facebook app has become outdated and buggy, but I really wanted a way to receive updates and easily get to the site. Enter Pin More. I was able to easily create a nice looking Facebook tile which flips with updates to my feed using Facebook's RSS feed (which Pin More supports to feed the live tile), and clicking on the tile opens Facebook in my browser. I made another tile that does the same thing for Apple's movie trailer site. This is in addition to how nicely the app allows you to pin Steam games. Simply put, it's fantastic! The interface of the app is pretty nice as well, making it easy to create tiles, pin them, and update them if you want to change anything. The only request I'd make to the developer is a way to sync tiles I've made between multiple computers so I don't have to rebuild them on each computer.

Great App!

First Windows 10 app I've purchased and worth every penny. This tool lets me pin anything I can think of and customize it the way I want it. The only issue I've had so far was the inability to assign large tiles to any of my pins, but I'm sure that's a matter of me not reading the directions. The rest of the program works flawlessly - especially when combined with Snowy Dune Launcher. Perfect! UPDATE: I had a problem creating a shortcut to the Windows 10 snipping tool - never mind the problem or solution - the update is to again applaud the folks behind this app for their incredible response. I sent a detailed description of the problem and in less than 12 hours +/- they gave me a response which not only worked but taught me why my technique was failing. Awesome. If there were six stars I'd add one to my five star rating.

Pin More Should Come With Windows

This app addresses my biggest problem with the start screen interface since Windows 8 - namely the lack of customization for the tiles. With this app you can have fine grain control over the look of many types of tiles. Supports all tile sizes. Advanced users should get Snowy Dune Launcher as well for even more ways of creating tiles for applications. Highly recommended if you enjoy tinkering with the look and feel of your start screen.
