Live tiles in Windows 8 are the first bit of your app that a user sees. A great tile will encourage the user to use your app and to continue to engage with it. Like they say, you only get one chance to make a first impression!
Ratio is currently hosting a Windows 8 Metro Design Contest and after looking at the designs that have come in so far, we’ve identified some specific areas where we can offer advice. Here are the top ten most common live tile design mistakes we saw.
This post has been brought to you by the Ratio Team, a leading Win8 Agency. Did we leave any common mistakes out? Please tell us on Facebook or Twitter!

Good luck to all those who have entered the contest, and for those of you that are interested, there’s still time to apply and submit for your chance to win!
