  1. Live tiles


    Just curious. If I open my start menu the live tiles like store, weather and news do their thing. Cycling through. But after a a while they stop updating and show a static picture or piece of info. Is that how it should be? I would prefer they were on a repeatable loop. Is there any way to tweak the settings? If I close the start menu and re-open it then the tiles start their cycle again. Not a major thing but just wondered.

    Also the photo tile only seems to scroll for 5 or 6 pics, always the same it seems. Is this normal?

    Cheers

  2. can user enter text into live tile?

    Is it possible to create a live tile on WinPhone 8 that has user controls?

    For example, the Live Tile accepts user input? and have a "submit" button right on the Live Tile?

  3. 10 foot live tile view

    Take this as a suggestion or an application idea:



    Summary: 10 foot live tile view application/lock screen/screen saver.



    Features:

    - A rotating view of pre-selected live tiles

    - The live tile will be zoomed to the maximum viewing. since they are square, the other section could be empty or filled with usable - 10 foot viewing content.

    - The application can be configured to rotate after x amount of seconds to the next pre-selected tile.

    - The application can be configured to run immediately based on powersaving/lock settings.



    Concept:

    - Allows for remotely viewing from a larger distance(aka 10 foot) your current live tiles such as email, sms, voicemail, weather tile, and other 3rd party tiles.



    Sample rotationshowing icon and value:

    Email tile, sms tile, phone tile, weather(weather.com tile), other 3rd party tile, etc



    I thought of developing this application, but to continually update the application for new live tiles would not be practicle.

    Simply screen capturing live tile info and posting seemed like the least processing intensive....I would rather see this native to the OS to expand on live tiles.
