Appointile: Appointment Live Tiles for your Windows Phone

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.

  • sweet!!  downloading now!... much better then the calander we have now i think.
  • View only, and no exchange support? Good start, but not enough functionality to have as precious tile space.
  • yeah, no exchange support is a shame but 3 versions in one month provides some hope they will quickly ramp up the feature set.
  • ..so are double-wide tiles only available to OEMs and carriers or something? I'd live to see more apps than them (like this one)
  • Good concept, but only supporting Windows Live calendar really sucks. Need ALL of my calendars showing to make it useful.
  • Both Windows Live and Gmail calendars supported for now. See here some interesting feature requests you can vote for http://reach.jdbpocketware.com/forum/10078-appointile/
  • Agree with the comments here... great idea, but need Exchange calendar to be supported. Then they can have my £1.99.
  • No exchange support detracts from it for me but it's a great idea. Viewing more than 1 appt is sorely needed
  • Anyone interested in this kind of app should check out Agenda Live as an alternative. It doesn't require data connection since it uses your locally synced calendars and also works with Exchange. It'll show up to 6 appointments on both sides of a live tile and it color codes them so you know which are ocurring soon, today, tomorrow, etc... It also has a calendar search feature that can be pinned to the start.
  • Awesome!  Thanks MideCrimeDan!  I use Exchange so Agenda Live is what I needed!
  • Update!
