    What is the best app for WP8 for making custom tiles, like splitting up pictures into tiles etc. There are ones in the store but need to be naught for some effects.

    I'm using Custom Tiles Maker. There's a wide selection of layouts for your split pictures although not all are free. It also lets you assign actions to the tiles like launching Bluetooth settings, website etc. On top of this it also has NFC tag writer and Lockscreen Wallpaper settings too...

    Also try out the skinnery app which is pretty decent also there is a big push to get more apps to have skinnery support (live tiles) currently as far as I seen games gone free and ilol'd support it. There maybe others but these are only two apps from the apps i use that have implemented support.

    I use Skinery Themes, which is currently in beta, but offers a similar experience to Skinery Tiles and Custom Tile Maker. Here is the link:
