    I've downloaded several custom tile making apps, and none do what I need. I'd like to add a tile to my start screen that links to html5.grooveshark.com and has a grooveshark logo as its graphic.

    Anyone know of a simple app that can do this? I tried Pin To Start, and that app just sucks all kinds of wind.

    Thanks...

    Pinch and zoom into any part of the page (like the logo if it is on the page somewhere), and then select pin to start from the app bar, and it will use the current page image as the tile image.

    Thanks. I did try that, but it doesn't really work out for grooveshark mobile - no real logo or other decent graphic to zoom in on. I appreciate the suggestion, though.

    I think Quick Tiles will do what you want. You can create custom tiles for various tasks, which you can pin to the start screen and point to any url. You can also customize the font and colours of the tile or add a background image from your library.

    Here's a quick one I did using a note template (without the notes and just a link)

    This is my web app and work direct from Internet Explorer on the phone:
    Windows Phone - Custom Tile Creator

    You can create custom web url tile and pin them to start.
