    So am I correctly understanding that there is no way to have local notifications for say, an app which would require a counter on the tile? I am not using any web service, my app uses calculations to retrieve a number then adds those numbers together in which I would like represented on my tile as I know it's a request many users have asked for in similar apps.

    I'm not quite sure I understand what you're asking for. Do you mean you want to manipulate the tile while the app is running? In Mango you can do this with the Microsoft.Phone.Shell.ShellTile class:

    How to: Create, Delete, and Update Tiles for Windows Phone

    You could probably do this inside a PeriodicTask too if you want to, though I'm not sure about that.

    heres what i mean. basically the app has a counter and when one exits the app, i want the counter to show on the tile so the user has a quick glance at it. every time the user opens the app and the counter number changes in the app, i want the tile to reflect the change

    Well then that link I posted should cover it. It's Mango only though.
