Microsoft's #TileArt app helps you make your background awesome

Microsoft has just launched a new app for Windows Phone called #TileArt, which offers a quick way to customize the tiles on the Start screen, along with creating a custom lock screen. The app was made by Microsoft team member Ricc Webb.

Here's what you can do with it:

  • Create your own custom tile layout
  • Upload transparent PNG images
  • Access free #TileArt Gallery
  • Customize your lock screen
  • Share home screen with your friends"

Here's what Webb had to say about this new app:

Doing this takes time, and a lot of effort, so the idea behind the app was to make customizing your Lumia as easy as possible. I'm not saying it's perfect, but I think the combination of creating your own tile template, PNG support, lock screen customization and the #TileArt gallery make this a great starting point for anyone who's interested in creating awesome home screens.

Microsoft is launching a new competition in conjunction with the new #TileArt app, teaming up with TalentHouse to pick four artists that will have their creations published in the #TileArt app gallery. The winners will also get $1,500 and a Surface Pro 3. The deadline for entries is Feb. 24.

A little closer to home, be sure to drop by the Windows Central forums and share your creations with us. You'll find the thread here
