Status Tiles

The developer of Status Tiles for Windows Phone has changed the price of the app to make it free for everyone for the next 48 hours. If you've been interested in downloading the app but failed to make the purchase, it's now recommended you pick up a copy and give it a go. Status Tiles is a handy app that helps you out by pinning shortcuts to the Start screen, showing the status of numerous features (Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and more).

While Windows Phone 8.1 added the Action Center, this feature is limited to a small number of options. Status Tiles simply expands on this functionality by utilizing Live Tiles. We previously looked at the app and here are the tiles that can be pinned to the Start screen:

  • Flight Mode
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • Location
  • Data Connection
  • Screen Rotation
  • Battery Saver - Live battery level
  • Flashlight
  • Music Stop

Status Tiles

It's a neat app and one that can really lend a hand when it comes to managing such options on your Windows Phone. As noted above, the app is available for free for 48 hours (usually $0.99).
