View Thread: Maybe it's my age, but live tiles isn't working for me
  • User profile image

    Really there are two times I can see that the "live" part of live tiles are used:

    • When a tablet is docked and its main purpose is to sit on the table and look pretty while displaying live data via Start screen
    • When checking aggregate information during the course of normal use

    Microsoft could do a bit better in both of these areas, in my personal opinion:

    • Allow live tiles on the lock screen (touching them would prompt to unlock), so I can keep the tablet secure but still gain the benefits of live tiles
    • Allow the start screen to sit in a snap view, so I can see live tiles without moving away from my current app
