    Proud to announce that the buying bug is fixed with the latest update, and I will be working on double wide tile support. Thanks for the support and input, guys. Expect an update in a few days.

    I love this app! I had the same idea once when I was rearranging tiles on the start screen. If I knew c# well you might have had some competition! I'd like to see the following apps be on your app:

    HERE Drive+
    Skype
    Xbox 360 Smartglass
    News
    Games

    There's a few tiny things I don't like about it though:

    -Your app's music tile always displays the name "Music" while the actual Music tile doesn't in the smallest tile option.

    -Also, every one of the twelve pin-able tile goes though your app to open the actual app. Because of this, when I press the back button to close one of those twelve apps that I opened through a translucent tile I go to a black screen which I found out is from your app. I have an app similar to yours in that you can pin transparent versions of tiles for apps which don't have that option yet. In that app (Transparency Tiles), I don't have this happen to me. I'd like to see Translucent_Tiles tiles become like Transparency Tiles in the way of not having to see that extra black screen when choosing an app.

    -I think the underscore should be taken out of the name. I think it makes it seem too beta stage like/developer-y.

    Thanks for the feedback! I will fix the music tile ASAP and add the apps you listed. I am not sure how to fix the back button thing, though.

    This is an awesome app. It would be cool tho if you let the users choose how translucent it is.

Everything is going well, but I want to know what app you would like to see supported. Please list apps you would like to see to be able to do this. I have made Music(green) and Office so far.

    The app does this when I try to use the Office live tile. I think it's a problem with how Office is linked through the translucent tile in your app.

    When I try to open OneNote through a translucent tile, it says "Can't open this link" in a OneNote popup dialogue box.

    Just a tip: Scroll down to see the games tile. This is where all future tiles will go.

    Love your app! Quick question..do tiles pinned from your app show notification counters on them like the "stock" tiles? For example new article count for wpcentral?

    Unfortunately they do not, as it is not the app's tile, it is a shortcut. Glad you love the app ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Just downloaded it. A couple of apps I use all the time.

    OneDrive.
    Store.
    Mint.com
    6tag.

    Those are apps that would look cool on my home screen with this effect.

    Well done.
