Best Windows 8 Apps
24 April 2013
Great developer! Emailed him with a request for support for .iso files, responded within hours.
Regret not getting Pin Anything when it was available, but this app is definitely good enough to purchase.

This is the first Windows 8 app I've been willing to actually spend money on and it is totally worth it. Arguably the best implementation of Steam live tiles with even more options for websites and documents to make it more than worthwhile for non-gamers. Be sure to check out the developer's website for tools to further enhance Pin More's capabilities. At the time of this review there is a bug in Windows 8.1 that the developer has already reported to MS, that is causing issues with adding live tiles from documents. It does work, but it typically requires switching back to the All Apps list and then back to the Start screen to jumpstart the live tile rotation. The developer was quick to respond to my support inquiry. The only thing better than a great app is a developer who takes care of their app and customers.

This app is certainly worh your money, makes everything beautiful and matching with the Windows 8 UI :)

This is a very nice app! Amazing for Steam games. Makes my start screen look much nicer.
Wish there was support for .exe files.

This app has changed my start screen for the better. There is great integration with steam and I love the ability to create large tiles.
For those wanting to integrate .exe files you have the ability through the Snowy Dune Launcher (located at the developer's main site: http://www.snowydune.com/). Hope that helps!

I wish there was a little more flexibility to add and customize other applications without having to add them to Steam. For games on Steam, Origin, and Uplay it works flawlessly. This is probably the best app like it out there.

This app seemed perfect for what I wanted it to do: create nice tiles or icons for websites I want to make direct shortcuts for. However, you will need to realize that the tiles it creates require this app and launch the app to execute. While that's not so bad, its the fact that this app remains open after you swipe down to close the website or document you opened with that tile. That's basically an extra app you need to close every time. Perhaps the developer can set the app to close automatically after one of its created tiles is launched, but until then, I'm looking elsewhere for my solution.

Nice. One annoying thing is that there is no way to hide the app when you pin a file (e.g. a video). It starts the file but then the app lingers in a background. I prefer it to have a setting to finish after starting a file in appropriate app. I.e. it should just work as a shortcut on a desktop. Basically I want to be able to set up some pins for my wife and not confuse her with some UI which I use to create such pins.

What a great app for Windows 8. I like the ability to pin really anything I want. Some things are missing though. Since I love the way you can customize the way the tiles look, I wish there was an option to pin exe tiles and customize them too. I want to be able to ping my origin games, without having to add them to Steam as non-steam games. But good app, fun to tinker with.

Does not work.

I can't seem to make large live tile for website work with RSS feed. Resizing to wide tile shows live tile again. Only happened to website's tile. Pls fix. Thanks.

The creator even responds to email (at least in the past, haven't sent him one recently) about shortcuts not working. Can't ask for much more than that.

I've tried others, but Pin More is the Best in Class. Thanks for making this available on Free App of the Day.

This helps make windows beautiful.

I had been looking for something that would allow me to add folders to my start menu for easy access and this app does just that! It also works great for pinning separate files, web, steam games, and more to start screen. Easy to use and very handy.

Really well done
Have to get full version

I really like the simplicity of this application. I contacted the developer regarding my only issue. I would like the option to create a tile and replace a tile on the Start screen with my newly created one.

Does what it says, and seems to work how it's supposed to.

All the features that are advertised work flawlessly. I am requesting to the developers of this app to add, if possible with the pin API to customize any game executable. There are games that look like crap when pinned that are not in steam or origin, like Smite, Heroes of the Storm, and League of Legends for example. Adding that feature would make this application even better than it already is.

Best app for this!

Great Apps, and great responding dev

Great App. Fast

It's useful for organizing everything and all, but the built in folder can't use shortcuts, making it not too useful.

Great app, worth the money! And can easily add new titles.
20 March 2015
I use it mainly for steam games at which it does great, only thing wrong is when purchasing a new game it some times take a while before it notices its on the account.

YOU CAN PIN ANYTHING U EVER WANT SO BUY IT NOW !!

The app gives you the ability to pin folders, documents, web links and games from Steam, Origin, and Uplay. The customization for tile images is pretty good but is lacking in a couple of ways:
Titling is pathetic, It would be much better if the titles on the tiles looked like the main page button titles in the app itself, a slightly transparent black overlay with bolded white text.
Live tiles work but they look bland and could look great with some actual graphics work and polish.
Pinning works fine as said before but I would like to be able to pin anything, including executables.

This app does it all, files, folders, games, even websites. There is no other app on the store that performs as well as this app either. It's polished, pretty, and flexible in a way that makes it worth the price of three dollars. Get this app now, as it is an essential part, in my opinion, of having a windows 8 device.

Love this app. I can't stand icons so this keeps my start screen looking nice and clean.
