[APP] OblyTile - Tile Creator for all programs.
This program is meant to create tile to the windows 8 start screen.
I created this in vb.net using SharpDevelop, it works for all programs/folder/files and even websites.
The program will store the image files inside the folder "C:\Program Files\OblyTile" and create the Shortcut .LNK file inside the StartMenu folder.
If you want to delete a Tile, right click it on the startmenu and select "Remove From Start" on the left bottom side.
