    Hi, I'm new to this forum, but I think microsoft should add an option to change the font, font size and font colour on the tiles and add shadow to the letters and the icon on the tile itself. This is because this way you can make the tiles look more cool but also to make the letters and the icons more visible. The shadow option is especially nice when you use a custom background image. Let me know what you think about these ideas and maybe you can tell me some other customizing features you would like to see for the letters and icons on the tiles.

    I was thinking about this idea as well. But mostly the color. Now the while color doesn't look good on a white background. It actually sucks. I think it would fit perfectly in the message they're trying to convey as you can make your cellphone truly yours.

    I don't care much about the font, but I am sure others do... Votes to you!

    No thanks.
    That detracts from the minimalist design language of Metro.
    We aren't about Android.

    It doesn't have to be less minimalistic. Besides, this way everyone can customize their homescreen even more. You don't have to use this option. It's an option. That's what it is, it's optional.

    Because WP is all about the Segoe font and a specific design language Changing the font to something else would look wrong. This is why most of the WP-style launchers made for Android look like complete garbage.

    The Metro/Modern UI completely ignores shadow and depth, so bringing it will make it inconsistent.
