Tile Me! adds more phones and ability to save backgrounds in latest update

Tile Me! has received an update that makes its Twitter background creator even better. Version responds to a couple of suggestions we had in theprevious version. The latest update adds more Windows Phone devices to display in the background and you are now asked for permission to post a tweet whenever you change your background. You can also now save the background to your phone or even share it from your device.

Here are the new features listed in the change log for Tile Me!:

  • Added Lumia 521, HTC 8X, HTC 8S and Samsung ATIV S Neo to Twitter background creator
  • Added ability to save Twitter background to phone
  • Added 'Share' option to Twitter background
  • You are now asked for permission to post a promo tweet

Most of the experience is still the same. Enter your name, gender, phone, and then choose a screenshot to display for the phone. You can also change the background color surrounding the phone. What’s great about the color selection is that it includes colors from other carriers and manufacturers. You can see ‘htc lime’ or ‘orange uk’ in the list.

The right side of the Twitter background also remains unchanged. It shows off some of the specifications for the phone you selected with some general features of Windows Phone like Office, HERE maps, and Skydrive.

Click the Twitter upload button when you’re satisfied with the final image. You get a message afterwards that your new background has been uploaded and then asks you if it’s okay for the app to post a promo tweet. It looks like this:

Just click the cancel button if you don’t want to tweet that. Take a look at a sample Twitter background below created by Tile Me!

We’re quite happy with the update and we think you should definitely try this app if you haven’t yet. Tile Me! is available at the Windows Phone Store for 99 cents. There’s also a free trial available.

Do you use this app? How do you like it so far? Let us know in the comments!
