    Mos definitely! Fuse does not even come close!. As far as I'm concerned, with it's new content layout, it has left Fuse in the dirt! I can spend ages just looking at its Wide screen tile; It's just beautiful! (It uses the same sort of algorithm for displaying content as the Pictures Tile, only content display carousel's faster!)

    Never played words with friends, does it do anything nice on double wide tile?
    ESPN has live tile support only during the game when it is happening supporting only one team. I always use it

    Here Maps & Here City Lens (that is Nokia Maps & Nokia City lens for you) have double tile, but not 'alive'. Speed test has a double tile that will display the last tested date,time and speed (nothing exactly a beauty thing, I know )

    I think that Urban Spoon, Trip Advisor and Photos are great.

    I have a question, why does the music live tile only show the artist art when the music is playing? In WP7, it used to show the last artist you played. I liked this as it was another expression of who you are. I am rarely on my start screen while music is playing.

    Any thoughts?

    I also found those :
    Astronomy lock screen (it shows the picture of the day) .
    Lock screen Text (it shows your text) .

    Those don't show anything beside their logo in their Double-Wide Tiles :
    Photofunia .
    Blink .
    Baconit .
    NFC LaunchIt .

    I'll keep you posted on what i find .

    After checking some more of my apps I found these:

    Custom tile maker - you can pin a double wide tile that rotates through a selected photo album. I use it just have a text header for a group of apps.
    Fantasia Painter - Normally the tile would just have the fantasia tile artwork. If you customize any of your pics, and save them, they will rotate on the tile as well. Nice touch.
    Note+ - You can pin a note in all three sizes. The only downside is that it shows the note on the backside of the tile instead of efficiently using the front side.
    Skype - Shows a tile count and a preview of the message along with who sent it.
    Package tracker - The double wide tile is the best choice because it displays the update counter, the package name, last scan, and timestamp all on the front side of the tile.

    Not so! Pin from within the app. It's one of the nicest of all.

    Sorry for double posting but I just had to share this. In your face HTC hub ;)
    TimeMe

    EDIT---
    Sorry but I tried this app and the live tile updates like twice every hour so it's pretty useless.

    Engadget just updated their app and its got a gorgeous double wide tile with latest news update counter. The app interface is also more in line with the website and is super smooth. They really knocked it out of the park.
