WizTiles Lets You Create And Theme Custom Live Tiles, Doesn’t Require Unlock

We’ve recently covered Supreme Shortcuts and Themes for WP7. Now, forum member wiztile has developed a new Windows Phone 7 app called WizTiles that more or less combines the funtions of those two apps. Best of all, it doesn’t require an unlock; however, that also means that it can’t offer as many features, like shortcuts to system settings.

Basically this app lets you create custom tiles and tile themes for your homescreen. Sure, there are tons of similar apps in the marketplace, but I promise, this one is different. The main difference is that you can create themes, then download them into your phone. We’ve also created 15+ basic tasks that you can execute from the custom pinned tiles.

That is, you can create tiles that allow you to, for instance, directly call or text a particular contact, open a specific website (which would be, of course, xda-developers) and more, and then customize them with your own image. The dev has also promised to include more themes and functionality in the future.

Sounds interesting? Head over to the forum thread to give WizTiles a try, and be sure to share your custom themes with us!

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5.
