Live Tile Browser (Update)

I have just finished an update to the Windows Phone 7 version of LTB that picks up on some of the enhancements made for the Windows 8 metro version (see here).

The latest version, as well as including many more live tiles (on average we are seeing around 15-20 new Live Tiles a week) now includes a useful filtering utility:


As you touch one of the filters and swipe to the tile pages you only see relevant Live tiles matching your filter selection.  In addition a small filter icon appears at the bottom left of the screen to indicate that a filter is in effect (tapping this icon will also take you to the filter screen)

I’m not sure yet about the UI implementation of the filtering page and may well switch it out to utilise the Windows Phone Menu system instead – Please let me know if you have any thoughts on that.

The categories are dynamic such that as new tiles become available, relevant  filter options are picked up automagically.  As you might expects the categories are the same as those in the Windows 8 App and in the Silverlight version of the App at


Some of the latest Live Tiles


The update is currently undergoing testing and should be available through the marketplace soon.

In the meantime you can download the current (and free) version ‘Live Tile Browser’ HERE.
