Wish my tiles on my start screen are all live tiles but not so fast, I have just 10
Ever wondered if all your tiles were live?
It makes the screen so nice and non Windows Phone users jealous when they see it.
Now for the polls, how many live tiles have you got??
Lets make some noise and encourage all developers to add it to their apps. ;-)

Wow...I have 30 live tiles.... active tiles ..he ones that are the solid theme color drive me insane the one one I have pined like that are my live mail...and marketplace....the rest give me info from stock updates to news and weather... also like the WPC app that shows the latest news I call that a semi live tile though i wish it did the news and the flip being the latest forum addition Oh wait it doesn't do the forums yet.
To me the live tiles is what really makes the OS stand out the plain theme colored ones to me are outright boring.
Two - Me and Amazing Weather - plus one that flips but just shows a picture (Carbon). Live tile updates are usually too delayed unless you happen to look right after they've updated, so as I tend to just check the apps anyway as a result (facebook, twitter, email etc.) there's no point having any more as it just eats battery.
I might have more if there were some way to track battery consumption of them.
Incidentally, has anyone evr done a test to see which is the quickest at letting you know you have an update, iOS, Android or WP? I think that'd be interesting to know.
If including the native apps such as people/groups/me tiles etc. I have 14 live tiles.
I like the way the information is presented and the way the screen animates. It just feels more "alive" for lack of a better description. Especially considering my previous device was a Nokia N900 which was pretty static.
