Live tiles were introduced with Windows Phone 7 and are one of the most unique user experience elements of the platform. Their success is probably why Microsoft introduced them in Windows 8 Metro apps as well. The concept is the same as in Windows Phone 7, the options are however much more extended. Notifications and push notifications also found their way from Windows Phone into the Metro platform.
In this new SilverlightShow webinar, Gill Cleeren will explore these exciting features together with you to introduce you further into the world of Windows 8.
