Play Tiles, Toasts, and Notifications in Windows Store Apps
The first view of a Windows Store app is the tile. Tiles can show much more than a simple icon. Live information can be updated with time intervals, but also push notification is possible to show actual information. When tiles are not visible, it is still possible to give actual information to the user, via notifications. The user is always in control. This session demonstrates implementation of tiles, secondary tiles, badges, and toasts, possibilities and restrictions.
