    Playlist Tiler: pin colorful playlist tiles to your Start screen!

    This simple but very handy app will allow you to create colorful tiles for the music playlists, using the albums art or your own graphics.


    The app also supports NFC tags so you may automate some actions (like all tracks playback) in your car. Unfortunately, currently Microsoft has a limitation (damn stupid limitation but it's MS!) - NFC tags can't be processed with locked screen or screen off. Hope, MS will remove this in the WP 8.1 release!

    Please review and rate the app. Don't leave negative feedbacks - tell me here what's wrong and I'll try to fix it as soon as I can!

    Yes, I can. But could you suggest a large tile design? If playlist (i.e. included albums and songs) has no art at all or 1 pic, it's simple - picture will be located at center. But what if we have 2, 3, 10+ pictures? Should I create a "mosaic" picture from the all art? Could you draw me a sketch?
    What kind of information you wanna on the large tile: total duration, number of songs?

    Unfortunately, new "Music" hub creates a playlists in the new format (they are stored in the internal database, I believe so); currently Microsoft doesn't provide any API for access to the "new" playlists :(
    You should use the "old" easy way: connect your phone to PC, open "Music" folder, select folders, right click, choose "Create playlist" in the popup menu, rename it.

    Playlists are kinda different from the games collection (everybody has a lot of games), they may have just a couple of pictures (or nothing). OK, I'll discuss that idea with my designer.
    As for live tile, I'll investigate current API (and probably 8.1)...
    BTW, thanks for suggestion!

    Playlist Tiler got an update!

    ome bugs are fixed, speed and playlist shuffle improved. Unfortunately I don't have enough time to implement good wide tiles; will try to bring 'em in the next update.

    ​Enjoy!
