    Hey, I'm pretty new to Windows Phone and was trying to figure out custom tiles - it seems pretty limited so far. Basically I just want to setup static tiles for apps using a photo with the icon for the app on top. I've tried Skinery, WizTiles and MyTileMaker:

    MyTileMaker - can't set tasks for the tiles.
    Skinery - decent but limited number of apps/tasks.
    WizTiles - probably closest to what I want but very limited number of apps/tasks.

    Is there any way to do this? I'd be happy to create the photos + icons myself manually if there's some way to replace them on the phone (e.g. take the "Messaging" tile and replace it with an icon or photo I made - this is probably not a good example as I think you can do this in Skinery/WizTiles but I want to do it for all of the apps).

    Replacing a system tile (eg. messaging, as you stated) with a custom one (but keeping the same function as the system one - opening messaging center) isn't possible AFAIK :)
