Band To-Go Keeps your Microsoft Band Me Tile Fresh

Admittedly, the Microsoft Band's outer shell is pretty bland and mundane. I talked recently about how I was able to convince my oldest daughter into getting one despite its lack of fashionability (is that a word?).

Fortunately, the Microsoft Band's innards are customizable for personalization. The Microsoft Health app has theme customization features built in, but the ability is very basic. Other apps like Pimp My Band (which is my current favorite) provide additional customization capabilities, allowing you to create and store your creations so they can be synched back across at any time.

I regularly spend time selecting just the right color and creating my own Me Tile images. My latest…

As you can tell I'm a die-hard comic book geek. Most of my creations come from this area of interest.

But, what if you don't have extra time to create your own themes? Or, what if you're the kind of person who gets tired of the same theme quickly?

Recently a new app that provides automated Me Tile updates has been released. Band To-Go is an app that allows you to have the Band automatically cycle through your favorite photos and images on the Me Tile. Additionally, you can configure it to update once a day with the daily Bing image.

Here's what it can do:

  • Pull in and display each day's new Bing photo. Updated every morning.

  • Cycle through photos in your camera roll every 2 hours.

  • Set a static image from photos stored on your phone or stored on OneDrive.

You can grab it here in the Windows Phone store: Band To-Go

P.S. Band To-Go has already added to the Microsoft Band Apps by Platform table.
