Appointile

AppoinTile is a Windows Phone 8 calendar app that lets you replace the native Windows Phone calendar app tile with a customizable Live Tile. A tile that is designed to place more information on your daily agenda on your Start Screen.

AppoinTile was recently updated to version 2.2.2 that adds the customary performance tweaks as well as adding a search function and Facebook integration. The app has also gone on sale with the price dropping to $1.99.

I wasn’t too thrilled with last week’s Xbox Red Stripe Deal, but this week’s sale title is a much more solid game. Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I is on sale for $1.99, down from $4.99. This marks the fourth time it’s been on sale, but the last time was back in November so a lot of Windows Phone newcomers probably missed it.

The non-Xbox Red Stripe Deals are pretty good too. The hidden object game Flux Family Secrets from Big Fish Games is on sale for 99 cents. If you like the genre, consider it a must-buy. And JDB Pocketware’s calendar/productivity app AppoinTile is 99 cents as well. Details and Store links after the break!

AppoinTile is a Windows Phone 8 app that you can use as an alternative to the native calendar tile and bring a little more information about your schedule to your Start Screen.

AppoinTile was recently updated to version 2.1 and brings lockscreen support to the table. AppoinTile's live tile will show up to four upcoming appoints and the new lockscreen support will display three upcoming appointments and the number of appointments left in the day.

Here's an interesting app for your Windows Phone. Appointile generates dual live tiles for your Windows Phone Start Screen that list your appointment agenda.  AppoinTile is an ideal app for those who are wanting to see more than just one upcoming appointment on their Start Screen.

When you first launch AppoinTile you are taken through a set-up wizard where you choose which calendar to tie into (Windows Live, Google, etc.), how you want your tile to look (number of appointments, days in advance, etc.) and pinning the tiles to the Start Screen.

AppoinTile allows you to list up to four appointments and will reach out as far as thirty days in advance. The back of the tiles can display the date or a 42 day calendar with markers placed on busy days.

The AppoinTile tiles will sync automatically with their respective calendars on a schedule you set within the app's settings. You can also restrict synchronization to only over Wifi/USB.  If you need to change calendars, you can access the calendar settings from the three-dot menu.

If you need a little more information displayed on your Start Screen with regards to appointments, AppoinTile is a Windows Phone app worth considering. There is a ten day trial version available and the full version will run you $2.49. You can grab AppoinTile here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.
