Windows Phone App Review: Tile Master
Tile Master is a utility app for your Windows Phone that has the capability of creating fourteen live tiles. The tiles can be pinned to your Windows Phone Start Screen or to a virtual start screen within the app.

- Access to connection settings (WiFi, cellular, Bluetooth, airplane mode)
- Website tile to go to specific sites
- Note tile
- To-Do tile
- Flashlight tile
- Wake-on LAN tile to let you wake up a computer remotely

- Dialer tile
- Email tile to send a pre-defined email

The app is designed with one page for the virtual start screen and the tile creation screen. You're tile selection runs along the bottom of the creation screen. Just tap on the tile you want to create and an easy to use creation template will appear. You'll have the choice to pin the tile to either the virtual screen or your Windows Phone Start Screen.
In viewing the virtual screen, you can tap/hold to unpin or re-arrange the tiles. Additionally, you can toggle between viewing the virtual screen and a display of tiles pinned to your Start Screen (the tile button in the upper right corner). The nice thing with this option is that you can unpin tiles from your Start Screen within the Tile Master app.
All in all, Tile Master isn't too shabby. If you're looking for a tile creation app, it's worth a try. There is a free trail version for Tile Master that is limited to creating connection settings and website tiles. The full version will run you $.99. You can find Tile Master here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.
