Windows 8 provides a rich environment in which you can create applications where it is difficult to discern the line between the operating system and your application, allowing your users to remain connected to your application even when they are not using it. Tiles and notifications are excellent examples of the integration. They provide opportunities for your application to communicate with users when your application is not running in the foreground. In this chapter, you’ll examine tiles and notifications, learn how they compare, and look at how to determine which is the right choice for a given situation.
