Interesting functionality, convenient interface
No significant shortcomings
Since the introduction of the Windows Phone operating system, among its users a stormy discussion on the fact that a smartphone interface cannot be significantly changed, has swirled. The only thing we could hope for is to change the color of icons, and while the first versions has quite modest color palette, now it has as many as twenty colors to change icons on the home screen of your smartphone. Thanks to the Wiztiles program you have the opportunity not only to decorate the home screen of your device, but also to make it truly unique.
Icons to be replacedToday, the program provides the opportunity to change the look of icons such as Marketplace, Connect-manager, Messages, Search, Camera, Internet, Navigation, Email, Contacts (dialing), and Publish. If you use them all, you can place them on the screen of a smartphone in the form of a puzzle that pieces together into a single picture. Depending on what size of icons you choose (small or medium), they take up the whole screen of the smartphone or only a part of it.
It's true that the other icons will remain standard, but if you use on the main screen the gallery, an active icon of the weather and your social networks, you can place them next to the replaced ones, and the desktop will look much more spectacular. In order to give personality to your smartphone, you need to select a theme in the program, to determine the picture that you disassemble into a puzzle, and tackle with the issue of back side of icons, as well as inscriptions. All the rest the program will do for you, and before every action you can examine the preliminary results.
Use built-in themes and photos from the gallery in WiztilesBesides photos and other images in context of icons design, you can also choose built-in drawings. If you do not have a decent picture, there is no reason to be upset, because from the program you can download already made pictures that are appropriate in size to the resolution of the screen, or themes of tiles. Among the available free themes in the catalog you can find really nice-looking dark icons with bright frame, or colorful icons with white letters.
ResumeThe program has a very simple and intelligible interface which is friendly even to a novice who bought a smartphone a few days ago. Let us hope that the developers will not abandon the program and soon expand the number of replaceable icons, and then begin on third-party applications. As for the rest, the program is out of complaints.
