    Do you have BBM in your list of translucent tiles?
    I'll try to include BBM. I'll keep you posted!

    Thank you! I'm tired of the BBM tile being out-of-place in my start screen. Please make it have a plain white metro icon and not the one we have now.

    Sorry bout that, but that's on Microsoft's side of things, I can't do anything about it.

    That's fine, I barely use the app anyways. I'll just keep the translucent tile for decoration.

    Getting a SP3 today and probably getting back into the swing of things after a long break from working on the app. I plan to push out an update sometime next week. Hope you all are enjoying the app.

    I'd like to have wide translucent tiles for apps with wide tile options like Xbox games, music, video; Twitter, etc.

    So I've got a crazy idea.

    Could it be possible to make the translucent shortcut tiles work as live tiles for some apps by using APIs? I think it would be sort of like making each of those apps (like Twitter, Facebook, etc.) a client app where people sign in to your app, but having the translucent tile open up the official app.

    In theory, that would be possible, but that would be like making a new Facebook app, twitter app, etc. Also, you'd still have notifications from the app, for which you are pinning shortcuts to the start screen.

    The notifications are why I'm fine with shortcut apps not being able to have live tiles. I was just wondering because I remembered that in some later update, interactive live tiles will be introduced, which would probably cause a lot of people to use an app's actual tile instead of a shortcut.

    Could you add blank colored translucent tiles? I was thinking you could do what a lot of apps already do by having blank tiles, except use translucent colors from the list of WP accent colors.

    Something like this:
    Attachment 74144
    Except using the colors available from the choices of accent colors for windows phone, instead of the random hexadecimal colors I used.

    Sorry this took so long to get back to, I was having internet problems due to time warner cable.

    Finishing up the update. Will release it tomorrow. After that, expect an update by the end of the week (blank translucent tiles, as sd173 suggested).

    I think it looks better than their own. I don't actually have the app though, I just saw what the actual BBM tile looked like in a screenshot a while ago.
