What do you guys think of this? I think the Weather Tile looks great.
Even though Live Tiles show dynamic content, you cannot interact with them. Microsoft Research is working on ways to include interactivity to Live Tiles. In the video demo below, they show a huge Live Tiles which has shortcuts to opened Office document files, when you tap the specific file, the file gets opened. There is a large mail app’s Live Tile which shows the list of recent mail, and when you tap the specific mail, it gets opened.
