Microsoft has been doing some serious work behind the scenes with their Facebook beta app. The latest work has resulted in a set of phenomenal live tiles that show why Live Tiles are one of the most powerful things introduced to smartphones.

Not only does the Live Tile for the Facebook Beta app alerts you to new likes and comments it also flips over to show the latest commenter’s photo and their relationship to you or the original poster.

These improvements point to Microsoft having a hit on their hands.


  1. Impossible!
    iphones don’t have live tiles so there’s no way they are “good” in any way at all.

    Static buttons that wiggle from time to time is where it’s at. Who dafuq actually needs easy to access information on a smartphone of all things. I’d much rather have a cumbersome file explorer than information.
