How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Allow WritableBitmap to be set as Tile Background.

If I want to update a Live Tile from my own App I can't draw it's background image on the phone, because if I store it to IsolatedStorage i'm not able to get an URI for it which I could provide the StandardTileData-Object with.

    As Solace mentioned in the comments (thanks Solace!) this is possible! You can reference IsolatedStorage via a URI that starts with “isostore:”

    StandardTileData NewTileData = new StandardTileData
    {
    BackgroundImage = new Uri(“isostore:/Shared/ShellContent” + p.PhotoName, UriKind.Absolute),
    Title = p.Name,
    Count = 0,
    BackTitle = "",
    BackContent = p.Comment,
    BackBackgroundImage = new Uri("", UriKind.Relative)
    };
