    Perhaps add example tiles with the apps listed. Everyone has a different understanding of decet/beautiful.

    Are some of these just double wide on WP8? On WP7.8 WPCentral is the only one that works for me other than the original Microsoft ones.

    That's my idea. Will install once we have a good number on the list and take screenshots of all of them in double wide style. If anyone is already using them, they can save me downloading and setting up the tile by sharing their screenshots! :)

    Yes, some are just for WP8 and hence this thread is in WP8 section.

    I love PHOTOSTREAM. It lets you have images in the widtile based on your search strings (e.g. hot girls, landscapes etc.) or simply editors'/community picks from 500px, Flickr etc. They also support your lockscreen, which can be changed every 30 minutes. I love love love this app! And the free one has all needed features. Give it a try!!

    AppoinTile
    XBox Music Tile (when there's music playing and if there's an album cover)
    Windows Phone Insider

    *I like Soundhound's tile. But the images are low-res.

    Let's just keep it to point. List of apps that we know has beautiful live tiles and that you pin only as large tile because it makes your phone.. well, beautiful?
    Hahaha, know exactly what you mean.

    For me the apps I have pinned with double wide tile that I actually need and it looks awesome are:

    - Appointile
    - Xbox Music (at least when music is playing)
    - TVShow

    And the apps I have pinned as wide tile just cause they look awesome (i.e., I don't actually use them much and I could set them as small/medium tile):

    -UrbanSpoon
    -CamCard
    -Chimpact
    -Robotek
    -Wheel of Wealth
    -Guns4Hire
    -Dredd vs Zombies
    -Weather Flow (I also have the lockscreen set for this app; I find myself rarely looking at the weather, it's there just cause it looks good)

    Wow, I thought I was the one pinning away for the sake of beauty, but your list is way longer!
    Is Robotek same as Robotech?
    Also, the games you listed, do they actually do anything like flip for different image/score etc or is it just the huge tile with attractive game photos? Rotates or stays the same one?

    Mehdoh & WhatsApp have a Double-Wide Tiles , but I'm not sure it shows anything other than the logo in the middle .

    Also , HTC Double-Wide Tile is beautiful , i like it a lot !

    The Music+Video Double-Wide tile is awesome .... When there's an artist picture ... Thankfully that's where MPAtools comes in handy .

    You got the rest of my suggestions covered :) I'll keep you posted with anything new i find !

    Metrotube, especially if you pin the subscribed tile. 9gag is great, its a 4 Chan picture viewer I believe. Kindle has a nice double wide tile for books pinned. Astronomy hub, one of my favorites apps. Also, one I wish would have a better use of double wide tile, Nokia drive+. It desperately needs my commute enabled. I remember when they announced it, that the double wide tile would display the up coming traffic and time ETA. I'm even more pissed that in today's event, that's now here drive + still in beta. Complete bs.
