Microsoft today released a new app called #TileArt in Windows Phone Store. This app makes it easier for you to pin your favorite images to the home screen and to personalize your lock screen. It also allows you to share the home screen with others.
The five main features of the app include:
• Create your own custom tile layout
• Upload transparent PNG images
• Access free #TileArt Gallery
• Customize your lock screen
• Share home screen with your friends
Download it here from Windows Phone Store for free. Microsoft is also announcing a global #TileArt Talenthouse competition to find four of the best animators, illustrators and designers from the Talenthouse community.
If you’re one of those who dazzle us, you’ll have your work featured in our #TileArt Gallery, potentially seen and used by the tens of millions of Lumia lovers worldwide. The grand prize is a Digital Artist Kit designed to help aspiring artists get on their feet. This includes a Lumia 930 (also given to the ten shortlistees), a dedicated page in the #TileArt app, a Surface Pro and $1,500. You need to get your entries in by February 24th, after which there’ll be a round of voting which ends on March 27th. The grand winner will be announced on March 31st.
