    What do you think? Good idea/bad idea? New feature/bug?

    As it is, I believe that one of the central ideas of the Windows Phone experience is customization. More tile sizes means more customization options. If other Technical Previewers find this feature appealing, supportive or contributory to the Windows Phone experience and if Microsoft approves their feedback, I think that having additional tile sizes would add a degree of flexibility to the customization options of the users and wouldn't be detrimental to the user experience as a whole.

    As a Technical Previewer, what do you think?

    lol, I didn't wanna throw up a big wall of text in the OP this time, so I figured I'd let a post or two pop up before I gave my opinion... but since you asked so nicely... :P

    I share a pretty similar opinion to it as you. I think its a good idea, the only thing I fear is that users will start expecting all apps to use every tile size, which would quickly start becoming a tedious endeavor for the developers, I can definitely see some use for a tile this size, but, most apps wouldn't really be suited to it.

    Also the vertical people tile disappeared. But the big square will come back. If you watch build keynote about tiles and notifications in W10 you can see.

    I'm sure they both will, they are probably currently in a different branch of development is all.

    I agree with you.

    Hopefully that will be addressed in the final Windows 10 release - on the part that makes programming for developers "easier" or something to that effect. Not sure how much tediousness adding more tile sizes would be, but I hope it won't be as tedious as making the app itself alone. Then again, one cannot please everybody, and the most vocal among users are those who have something to complain about (in the forums). We'll just have to wait and see for now.
