Tile Genie Description

Tile Genie for Windows 8 is a tiny and simple software utility which provides users with a simple means of splitting pictures into several tiles and pinning them to the Start screen.

Quick setup and minimal interface

The installation process does not last longer than a few seconds and does not come with any surprises, while the interface you come by encloses a very simple and clean design. It is only comprised of a few buttons and a pane to display created projects. Extensive Help contents are provided thus ensuring that all types of users can find their way around it, including those with little or no previous experience with computers.

Customize and pin tiles to the Start screen with just a few clicks

This software tool only supports JPG and BMP extensions, and they can only be uploaded with the help of the integrated file browser, as the “drag and drop” function is not supported.

It is possible to create a maximum of six tiles on the vertical, while horizontally there is no limit to the number of small windows that can be created. In addition to that, you should know that these tiles can be shaped as squares or as rectangles, and it is possible to move the picture around with the help of the mouse, as well as zoom in and out, until you are satisfied with the results.

Once you adjust all these parameters, you have to click the “Pin Tiles!” button, and just arrange the items on the Start screen.

Conclusion and performance

The resource requirements are quite low at all times and thus, the system’s performance is not going to be hampered, and you can run this app alongside others without experiencing any kind of problems. The response time is quite good and the interface is suitable to all user categories. Nevertheless, the import capabilities leave a bit to be desired.

All in all, Tile Genie for Windows 8 is a pretty decent piece of software, which does what it advertises.
