A bunch of pictures show the start screen will be customizable with background images
A bunch of leaked photos have arrived which give a clear view of the Start Screen of Windows Phone 8.1. From what we see, we can tell that this start screen will be customizable with background images. The upcoming WP feature and its settings screen have been revealed in these leaked pictures. But this option to customize will not be available by default and also the users will be met with the similar two-tone Start Screen.
The option to skin the tiles of apps will not be available with every app; there will be applications such as Office and Xbox Music which are going to stick to their standard appearance in solid color. To find out more we will have to wait till Microsoft starts rolling out the Windows 8.1 to developer which will be in next month during the Build conference.
