We’ve covered the Tile Me! application quite a bit in the past. The free (and paid) app allows you to create profile pictures based off of the Windows Phone Me Tile for use on other social networks like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. It’s a simple concept but wildly popular, especially with our audience. If you ever wondered how everyone was doing this in our forums or on Twitter, here you go.
An update for both versions of the app just went out today and it builds in Twitter support. That means you can now create your new profile pic and directly change it on Twitter with a few simple clicks. Booya.
Unfortunately, soon after we wrote about the animated GIF trick for usage on Twitter, the social network blocked the ability, so you won’t be able to use that feature (though the paid version of the app maintains animated GIF function).
The developer behind the app, InfiniteLoop, has also published a nice video tour of the app to show how it works (see above). That’s a great move because every time we write on Tile Me! and no matter how hard we try to be clear, some of you still “don’t get it”. Hopefully the video will help.
