    I'm new here obviously. How did you customize those tiles to make messages like that?
    I used an app called groupy. I just made small tiles with one word on each.

    My HTC Live Tile does not look like that.

    I believe if you open the app and then long press the city you want to pin to the home screen it will. I am heading to work so can't test this yet but let me know if
    that's it.
    EDIT: Ok I figured it out. Swipe over to the "Apps" page or whatever its called and tap HTC. Then long press on the city name...this will give you the context menu that lets you Pin to Start. That will be the graphic version of the Live Tile, rather than just the text.

    I had a **** of a time getting this post to work on my phone for some reason. Sorry if it was all jumbled before.

    Hi, sorry late reply, not been on here for few days. App is Groupy, set to small tile. to get the long SS I took the individual SSs and stitched them together with Photoshop.

    I can't stop making tiles!
    The possibility is endless!
    How far can I go?

    Let's try SkyDrive again...
    EDIT: Can't seem to embed skydrive photos..


    I've had the iPhones, the Android phones.
    WP8 BLOWS them away with the ability to pin live tiles.

    Sure there are some minor rough edges, but as a whole MS got wp8 right.

    PS. Sorry about the file size.

    I just want to confirm, this is your main screen so you scroll down way to the bottom when you want to access, lets say, Maps. Right? Is there a quick way to jump between screens? Or is it just learn the location of each app and that's how you can navigate quickly? I have maximum 2 screen lengths (usually less) on mine at any given time. I'm just wondering if there is something I don't know how to do. Otherwise it would take me forever to get around on a layout like that.

    I like the color scheme btw.

    You just swipe down. I have my tiles in Clusters and labeled with text.
    Top screen is Social, with me-tile, contacts, groups, email, Messages, mail and Phone.
    Below that is Media with subgroups Photo, music and video.
    Then lastly Apps, where i have games, nav, timers, settings, etc.

    Takes three screen lenghts for 44 tiles, not including the ones with just artwork and groupheaders (social, media, Photo, music, video and apps).

    Not hard at all if you organize it well.

    I have it the same way, just 1-3 screens. Not to many apps, just takes a lot of time scrolling. Keeping it clean.

    Hi, yes this is my main screen, just have to scroll down, no quick way to access different screens, it can be a little long winded I admit, I will probably reduce the size and change it to a minimum layout.

    its a shame there is no app to save your layouts on the fly, then it would be easy to change quickly.

    That's my current layout. I like the me tile to be 2x2 sized (top right). The Weather App is called Amazing Weather HD. The rest is pretty basic. My contacts are at the top left and a group of my best friends in the bottom right corner.

    I change my theme color constantly between crimson, emerald and cobalt. Still not sure about the Microsoft weather. Deciding between that and Sky Motion as my middle tile. So at the moment I have 3 weather apps.
