Show the whole background on your Windows Phone 8.1 Start screen with Tilesparency

One of the most popular new features in Windows Phone 8.1 is the addition of background photos on the Start screen. But along with this new feature may come some aesthetic challenges, like non-transparent Tiles blocking out key pieces of your background photo. This is where Tilesparency comes in.

Let's take a look!

With Tilesparency, you can create blank, functionless, tiles that allow you to make your background image look complete. And we say tiles, as in plural, because you can create as many as you want or need to make that perfect Start screen.

Bring your background front and center with Tilesparency

Tiles created with Tilesparency are just like any other Live Tile. They can be any size, including wide, and they can be positioned anywhere to compliment your background.

Remember, in order to use this app, you must first enable your Start screen background by going to Settings > Start+Theme > Choose Photo.

Tilesparency can downloaded for free here. WINDOWS PHONE 8.1 ONLY
