    I think there should be a 4th live tile option available on WP8. Here is my concept for a 1x2 small wide tile:

    It's a nice concept, however I think it's going to get clunky trying to rearrange the start screen with that many options. There needs to be a better mechanism for tile sizing before we start adding more options.

    I don't see how it would make it any harder to rearrange your start screen, its not that difficult in the first place...

    But yeah I've always thought about it and wondered how it would look, when i finally put it together I loved it! You still get to save some space over the 2x2 live tile, but still get live tile updates with it. I personally think it would be awesome.

    Perhaps a pinch to zoom gesture type when in tile edit mode?

    I have also wondered about a 1x4 tile, that can function as a good ticker for news apps etc.

    Really nice Idea! Always wanted something like that! I would love to have a 1x4 (or 1x2) Tile for SMS and Email-Tiles. That way one could read the first part of the text without changing the fontsize. One would just save some room for other tiles...

    (btw: I don't get why MS will not give the messagetiles two lines for the textpreview. One could read more OR see the preview from the secon message if there is one... the current solution only shows one line and does not use the space under it...)
