    I tried it but I can't figure out how to pin the art to the home screen. Tapping "Pin the tiles" does nothing on my home screen.
    Tap "Pin the tiles" option, and the your tiles (you just created) turns blue. Tap on each tile till it turns grey.

    Yeah, it's useful if you have some blank spaces and you want to fill them.
    Blank spaces? lol
    I user a couple of app folders because I can't get enough tiles on the screen!

    Where did you get the wallpaper for the default tiles like Cortana or store?

    They are just the regular transparent tiles. The wallpaper is in the app gallery. The Halo images in Mohamed's post are .png's and they sit over the wallpaper like regular tiles pieced together.

    Got it. I was trying to save the second pic from the app gallery which is supposed to be for lock screen and there was no option to save that image. So I got confused. But now I can see the save option in the first image which has only background. Thanks

    Here's mine. Also credits to the original maker of the theme Tile Art Guy, he's had the idea before Microsoft. I advise you to check him out because his content is real good and you can seriously impress your friends with them tiles.

    and try googling (or should I say binging?) for 'tileartguy'. he has been doing this for a while... bit in a more harder way.. it's all now pretty easy now with this app. This app just helps you add transparent png images as tiles to your start screen so that they appear to float over the background.. its a pretty cool thing if you do it with a little creativity..

    So all this really does is allow you to have a pretty grid of tiles that does nothing?!

    just try it out before you judge. try searching for TileArtGuy, he has some awesome samples on his blog

    I can put the picture on my start screen but it's just the picture broken up in tiles. I don't understand how you get it so all your tiles go over it.

    Great idea dude. A starry space background with Interstellar Tile Art.
    The Tile Arts acts like stickers or decals. Next advancement i hope it would provide a way to launch app.
    We've seen this with all other start screen apps. The icons in apps pinned, act this way too.

    Are you guys not bothered by those spacer tiles which are not doing anything but only displaying static images? I don't mind if we can associate apps to those static tiles, but we can't. Unless you have only a small handful of apps and related pinned tiles, otherwise those static spacer tiles are really taking up valuable screen spaces.
