Works on Win 10
Wanted to find a way to customize tiles a bit more for my new pc and found this app. Very happy with the results.More
Just exactly what it says it is, works smoothly. Very handy. The only improvements would be to allow a custom picture and color. Then it would be a real five-star.More
This app works great. Took me a while to find but it was worth it. I would have given it five stars if it would have allowed me to select a color when I created the tile. Other than that I have no complaints. It is simple to understand and use and the automatic timed close is a VERY nice touch.More
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!More
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.More
good start but no use for windows 8.1
nice app but no use make improve to ready for windows 8.1More
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.More
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.More
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.More
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 AppMore
