Windows RT/8 Live Tiles make de difference. Effective and cool !

What are Live Tiles ? Well, most of you probably know what it is, but I think "Live Tiles is the Windows 8 Start Screen showing data is dynamic" and not static as showed on iPad/iPhone and other mobile devices. I consider Live Tiles one of the most significant advantages of Windows RT/8/Phone when compared to Apple devices.

Click on the image above to see how Live Tiles work. Below is my Surface RT Start Screen plenty of Live Tiles examples. Some of these tiles I've turned them ON for dynamic data just to show your guys. Usually I choose to let only some significant data content tiles to show dynamic data.

They are not only cool, but really useful and effective to know what's going on with your dynamic data looking them at a glance.

Any application installed on Windows 8 / Windows RT is able to dynamically show strategic data on the its tile (icon) on the start screen (if the apps developer choose to). But what's important is that the user can easily chose to make one or more tiles (application icons) live or not, in other words, make them show or not, dymanic data.

Let me know if you have any question about Live Tiles.
