    I wanted to ask the wpcentral community what are some of the best apps in each category that have live tile support to pin to your home-screen. Thank you all for replying

    Weather channel app one of my favorites shows the current radar on the flip side of the tile... Mango only of course.

    I don't use too many, but I love hockey tracker and the weather channel tiles.

    Pinning people that's connected from twitter/facebook.from the people hub is pretty neat.

    Oh and the wpcentral app.is nice too.

    USA today only has Live Tiles for roughly 4 categories and News is not even one of them? Am I missing something?

    The main tile updates with pictures of current stories, I never used deep linking in any app so not sure what else it brings to the table with that.

    Flixter is nice but can take a while for the tile to update with some new film poster or something. BBC news app gives live breaking news headlines on the tile. Weather live.

    I deep link to various sections of the Gaurdian newspaper app.
