Editors' review

Stardock Tiles is a program designed to help users organize PC tasks. It's a neat solution for Windows power users who tend to have a large number of applications running at one time or people who work on a large number of projects at one time.

At the top of the application, you will find labels for each page of tiles such as Apps, Web Browsing, and Documents. Drag and drop is fully supported so adding items is easy. We liked that you can even place open applications on the interface by using the Shift key. If a program is not currently active, it will appear as a standard Windows icon. If an application is up and running, it will appear as a live preview tile. Tiles can be used as a program-launching utility program, or used to organize and keep track of current tasks and projects. The one drawback is that since it runs as a sidebar on the desktop, it reduces the size of other windows and some people might not want to sacrifice their desktop space.

Tiles downloads quickly and easily and uninstalls just as quickly and cleanly. While casual users might not have a need for this program, those with a lot going on will appreciate the easy organization that Tiles brings to their desktop.

    "excellent program"

    December 06, 2012   |   By stephendufton

    Version: Tiles 1.01

    Pros

    This is a great help in managing all my apps and windows on Windows 7. Its quick and easy to find and launch an application and also to see and re-open a minimised Window. I tried several alternatives before deciding on this one. Apps can also be grouped on "pages" so that they are easier to find.

    Cons

    The free version is rather basic and not that useful to me. I purchased the "tiles bundle" for about £7, which transformed this program. It gave me several pages with which to group my apps, a choice of skins, the ability to add the system tray to the bottom of a tile page, and the ability to hide the dock when it is not in use

    Summary

    Great program but you really need to spend £7 or so to make it really effective

    "Absolute Desktop Improvement"

    March 10, 2012   |   By ZenZenPup

    Version: Tiles 1.0

    Pros

    Makes the Windows Experience much more immersive

    Gives the user a chance to be more interactive and aware of what they are using and how to find it.

    Smooth, quick and a big help for power users

    A bridge into the Windows 8 world...

    Cons

    You CANNOT authenticate your purchase to upgrade if you are using Windows 8 Consumer Preview

    Tech Support is "blase", at best

    Summary

    If you have Windows 7 and you want a cool, quick and reliable tool for application and document management, Tiles is the leader in getting you where you want to go.
