Nice.

The Windows store is very disappointing. I rarely find anything that is well designed, useful or even practical. It was nice to find your app which is all three! Thanks!

Nice but....

Seems to work just fine but the app staying open after you click on a tile you have made with it and it having internet permission is too worrisome.

Doesn't work

Would be a neat app, if it worked. Tried to pin two different documents in my dropbox to start, the tiles appear for the documents, but when I click the tiles, it begins to launch, hesitates for 5 seconds, then crashes back to Start screen. That renders the app pretty much useless.

Excellent!

I'm a little puzzled by the lukewarm reviews of this app. It does exactly what it says it will do, it's intuitive in execution, it's extremely useful, and it exits all by itself after three seconds.

Resizing and Programs

I don't like that resizing the tile resizes the picture. I wish I could pick a photo for the smaller tile and a separate photo for the larger tile. It's true that .exe files are not executable. Wish this'd change.

Very useful app!

Does the job perfectly. No problems using JPGs for tile photos. Fifth star when bug that keeps program running in the background when tiled file is opened is fixed.

It made a tile from a couple of .exe file's I have but wouldn't run them. They are not installed as app's but I can run them on win 8. Maybe it's just for your average file and not .exe file's Otherwise Easy to use App

AWESOME!

This is exactly what I was looking for. I had to use .png files to make the thumbnail picture work, but once I figured that out it was great. I wish I could change the font color on the tile - font is white. Still, free, works, can't get better.

Works as advertised

Easy to use and did what it promised. However, I wish I could set the background color for the tile, I'm not fond the green color...
