The discussion in the previous chapter ended with a walkthrough of the Windows 8 lock screen, including an example of using the notification mechanisms built in to the Windows Store APIs to send messages to the user in one form or another. This leads into a discussion of two key types of notifications: toasts and tiles. This chapter examines these notifications, the purposes they serve, and how you as a developer can engineer them to most effectively serve your app and your users.
