1/14/2013Great concept. Very useful (e.g. for traffic flowmap updates) and works well, but room for improvements: tile image tends to be somewhat fuzzy (on wp8 high res screen at least), particularly when needing to zoom into a picture for capturing; capture area should be lockable as a square to avoid added fuzziness from rescaling aspect ratio.

5/2/2012This is exactly what I was looking for! I have a surf report site that I check regularly, and now I can put it on a live tile. The scheduler works pretty well although it could be a little more user friendly. Overall though great app, this will come in really handy.
