When we first saw that WP8.1 was potentially bringing tiled images, I thought it was a nice option to have but was not that interested. I mean, I thought it would be just like the apps on WP that changes the tiles in such a way already. What happens when you move or resize a tile?

It turns out that the background isn’t static. There’s a parallax effect. And it’s sort of enhanced when you mix in not editable tiles.Screen Shot 2014-03-28 at 19.23.52 Screen Shot 2014-03-28 at 19.23.58

Not sure if it occurs in the app list. The video isn’t too clear.
