    hi ive been looking around the store and web for more customization via apps for metro since its obviously limited and havnt had much luck. I came across decor8 but that seems to be x86 only since I couldn't find it in store. I was wondering if anybody else has had any luck coming across the apps? specifically color, not so much pattern since I want it to match my keyboard.

    You mean something like WizTiles? Not sure if I understand what you mean by 'customization via apps'

    yes, somewhat. something that can at least add colors and backgrounds, since they are limited in what we get. Apps are the only way to do this on a rt.
