Cellular Live Tile, WiFi Live Tile, HD EPG Pro free for 72 hours

Cell Live Tile

We've just been informed that Cellular Live Tile, WiFi Live Tile and HD EPG Pro will be made available for 72 hours for consumers, starting right this very second (depending on region). All three apps are developed by Formentera Sunset S.L. and are well rated on the Windows Phone Store. So what are the apps all about and should you be interested?

We took a look at Cellular Live Tile last month, which displays your phone’s current status: Data, Roaming, Speed, Network Type and Operator on the Tile, which also flips with more info. It's a highly customisable app that enables users to really determine what's displayed on the home screen. It's particularly useful for those who utilise multiple SIM cards.

Next up is WiFi Live Tile, which (much like Cellular Live Tile in terms of functionality) allows consumers to keep on top of WiFi status on a Windows Phone, while providing convenient and fast access to manipulate settings. There are a few WiFi tile apps available, but since WiFi Live Tile is temporary free, it's definitely worth checking out.

Lastly, we have HD EPG Pro, a really useful app if you own a media server (or are looking to build one). The Windows Phone app taps into media stored on a "Remote Potato Server" (www.remotepotato.com) and videos, TV, music and photos are instantly accessible over LAN or mobile data connection. While Microsoft (and Nokia) offer a unique way to enjoy music while on the go, it's always good to have a collection stored locally to provide more room for scope and personalisation.

It's good to see such established apps be made available without a price tag. As noted above, the sale will continue for the next three days. You can download Cellular Live Tile, WiFi Live Tile and HD EPG Pro from the Windows Phone Store for free.

A "brofist" is basically another way of describing a fist bump. A "brohoof" is just something us bronies usually refer to, as it is similar to a "brofist" except it directly implies MLP:FiM.
 
In most cases, many fanbases for various things such as tv shows, videogames, and such have their own "official" vocabulary of sorts, and the MLP fandom is of no exception.

HD EPG it says that is not available for my phone (L620) because of region or software..

Interesting cellular phone shows no signal, yet app shows 3 bars. How is that possible, oh yeah that's the lumia signal display bug.

its impossible for a Windows Phone APP to show the current signal Bars. There are some more infos on this inside the APP and at the first start .
 
EDIT: ahh, i got it now ;-)

Any chance of someone making an app for that can be pined to the start screen for turning on and off NFC? I could really use that.

HD EPG - I keep getting exception error when I try to stream video from laptop to Lumia 920. The video file thumbnails show fine, but have never been able to play any. Is there any codes/bitrate restriction?
 

Thanks so much!! Nice to have the words Wi-Fi now on my tile! 

Is there anyway to get a double wide tile on the Celluar Data live tile? Please :( 

I found the WiFi tile to be lagy upon open...take 2-3x more time to open WiFi settings than "connectivityshortcuts". Also takes several minutes to update the "live tile" after turning of the WiFi.....at least on my phone.

I have an LG E900, one of the oldest Windows Phone, it opens very fast on it. I dondt know why it takes so long on yur phone. what phone do you have?
Updating interval are always, with every APP, minimum 30 - 40 Minutes. Its impossible that another APP is faster. The OS is starting the Background Tasks and not the APP. If you turn off the WiFi on your Phone you have to wait till the OS is starting again the Background Task.

BTW: you can find all this informations also inside the APP on the first start screen and in the marketplace description
