While I am not a fan of the rumour mill, this one has got me excited. Background images have always floated my boat, but have you seen a background image on Windows Phone’s home screen? It looks absolutely fabulous! A chosen background image actually skins all Live Tiles on the home. I gather that this feature, alongside others, is coming with Windows Phone 8.1.
This also means that if you want your Tiles a certain colour but that is not available as an option, you can create or download an image of that colour, and, presto!
Looking forward to this!
