Tile Me! gets Twitter addition in update; show your Windows Phone pride with ease

We’ve covered the Tile Me! application quite a bit in the past. The free (and paid) app allows you to create profile pictures based off of the Windows Phone Me Tile for use on other social networks like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. It’s a simple concept but wildly popular, especially with our audience. If you ever wondered how everyone was doing this in our forums or on Twitter, here you go.

An update for both versions of the app just went out today and it builds in Twitter support. That means you can now create your new profile pic and directly change it on Twitter with a few simple clicks. Booya.

Unfortunately, soon after we wrote about the animated GIF trick for usage on Twitter, the social network blocked the ability, so you won’t be able to use that feature (though the paid version of the app maintains animated GIF function).

The developer behind the app, InfiniteLoop, has also published a nice video tour of the app to show how it works (see above). That’s a great move because every time we write on Tile Me! and no matter how hard we try to be clear, some of you still “don’t get it”. Hopefully the video will help.

Pick up version 1.2 of Tile Me! Free here and if you want the paid version (high resolution PNG, animated GIF, SkyDrive) you can grab version 2.6 of that bad boy here. All Windows Phones supported.

You're welcome man!

Daniel is easily the best looking Mobile Nations employee.  I'm not gay (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Since Twitter shut gif's down as a profile pic what other social media lets you use gif as your profile?

ErtaySh says:

I'm not really sure if any of the popular ones allows it. I know that Outlook allows GIFs though (email service, not social media )

Wow!! Both me and my gf are featured in the commercial! Thanks a million Ertay Sh!

I'm still pissed at Twitter.

I don't get it! :p
 
On a serious note: If I set such a "Tile Me!" picture as my profile picture, wouldn't my actual me tile look utterly stupid?

ErtaySh says:

Not if you set, say your Microsoft account profile pic, as the original, non Tile Me! picture. That way, you'll have your Tile Me! picture on your social networks, but the original on your Windows Phone startscreen.

Localhorst86 says:

But that way, the me tile looks blurry. Whenever you set an avatar for your Live account, the me tile uses a low res version of the image.

ErtaySh says:

Interesting. I have a 480x800 resolution phone so I can't really notice any difference here.
