    Hi there,

    WP 8.1 features transparent tiles. My Birthdays app dynamically generates jpg images and places them into a fliptile. I haven't played around with WP8.1 at all, but I am already wondering how the transparency works: can I use png files and use alpha values, now? Or do I have to use an alltogether different tile?

    Any information is welcome!

    Thanks a lot!

    I found this which is how to make a transparent tiles:

    windows phone 8.1 transparent tile - Stack Overflow

    Basically it saying when you create the tile design make sure the background set to transparent.

    Ok, thanks! Exactly what I was looking for!

    Basically they confirm my guess: use png ;)
