Recognized developer Jaxbot, who also brought us folders for Windows Phone, has released a new interesting tool which basically recreates the standard live tiles with custom images, thus allowing for sophisticated theming. However, since this only recreates those tiles, they’re not actually live, that is, they won’t display any data like those counters for unread messages. Still, it’s a nice little hack, since it opens up a lot of theming possiblities.
- Customize any tile (system or third party, including Marketplace)
- Use your image as a background for the tiles
- Use an accent color for overlay transparency
- Import themes
- Export themes
- A bundle of joy with easy personalization
Head over to the forum thread to learn more, and if you’re a themer/designer, be sure to share your custom themes with us!_________
