TileArt App for Windows Phone Encourages Creativity
Microsoft recently released a new app called TileArt that lets Windows Phone owners fully customize the appearance of their home and lock screens. With TileArt, people can create their own custom tile layout and upload transparent images to use with the layouts.
However, my opinion about the app is based purely on the fact that I've not had any issues reading PDFs. Sure, there some features that could be added, but when I compared the Adobe reader on my old WP7.5 to the native PDF reader on WP8, I had a hard time seeing how people were claiming Adobe reader on the old OS was better. Even when I compare the MS's PDF reader and Adobe's, I don't find much that makes it that much better, other than the fact that Adobe does load large files much quicker.
