    Currently sticking to the HTC color. Whichever game I'm currently playing the most gets a spot where Little Acorns currently sits.

    Is there not a way to put images inline from the wpcentral app?

    I actually really like how you overlay images. Like the cool dog up top with small random tiles in place of some parts of the image, and near the bottom you have the Me tile looking like it is right on top of the image of Patrick from SpongeBob, and the Facebook tile also overlays the bottom right of the image. To me, the effect you're giving is pretty awesome - that the entire image is there, but you have app tiles overlaying parts of it. Kind of makes things pop.

    Great tile design. I like your style

    I thought of a cool way to design your Start Screen that is easy to set up and adds a bit of flavor (and organization)! Here's how to do it:

    1) Get a custom tile app like Skinery Tiles Pro, and use it to create 2 1x1 black tiles.
    2) Put one of your favorite 2x2 tiles in the middle two columns by itself on the rows.
    3) Place similar 1x1 tiles adjacent to but not diagonally from the 2x2 tile.
    4) Use the two 1x1 black tiles as "separator" tiles to make the carousel stand out more.

    Voila! C'est le carrousel!

    Awesome!

    I'd like to start customizing my home screen like you guys have been. My home screen is a clutter of nonsense. Ordered chaos I guess lol. But everyone's clean/themed home screens makes me want to organize it a bit better.

    What app is everyone using for custom tiles? Also is there a grouping tile app available yet? To say put all the camera apps into a live tile and have it open the group of camera apps? Sorry if these questions are repetitive. I got through about 20 pages of browsing thus thread with no answer, and search didn't bring much up.

    Nokia's got you covered with a nice roundup: How to create awesomely artistic Windows Phone Start screens – Nokia Conversations : the official Nokia blog

    I use a personal combo of Wiztiles and Custom Tiles Maker. Not a fan of Skinery because, despite you being able to link to a select few number of third party apps, you can't put an image on an individual tile. You have to create a theme and the image spreads to all the tiles - so if you only use one, it could look out of place.

    Love Custom Tiles too, because you can create flipping tiles and they can link to a website, contact, pretty much anything except another app.

    Thanks for the app suggestions. I ended up downloading wiztiles pro and checked out
    wiphomes and came up with this

    https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resi...DDeBnGQYMfJbjQ

    Wiztiles is kind of cool, but I feel I can't really use most of the tasks you can link to. For example, linking a tile to the phone task won't open the usual phone screen I am used to with logs/contacts, but instead is more for a direct dial to a certain contact. Which isn't bad, but I don't have use for it at the moment.

    Thanks again everyone. I will keep playing around with new themes and see what I can come up with. But I am happy with the feel of my home screen now. Ready for summer !
