Custom Website Tiles For Windows Phone

Want to customize the web tiles on your Windows Phone?

I have been working on a small application to allow users to add some customization to tiles of websites that they choose to pin to their home screen. With this small web app you will be able to set some main text, sub text, font size, and color to the website tile that is on your homescreen. With this you will be able to easily make a pinned website tile match your theme or make it a color that stands out.

Future Features

I would eventually like to add more features to this web app like; font selectors, image upload, and more colors to choose from. For now you can use this tool at Custom Tiles. This has mostly just been tested on my HTC Titan and recently the CSS file was erased somehow so I had to redo it without as much testing. Please submit any bugs or requests in the comments below.

Then I open up Opera and Safari for testing.

Firefox All The Way

For my first 6 or so years of owning a computer I used almost solely Firefox. I actually started with IE but as soon as I discovered Firefox, IE was out the door. Then Chrome comes out and I enjoyed it but not enough reason to switch over from Firefox. Continue reading “Browser Brand Loyalty Can Cause You To Miss Out On Nice Features”
