An app tile can be a static image, but it can also be a live tile, which can show the user updated news, photos, events, or other content related to that app. Notification updates, based on a Windows-supplied set of templates, provide that material (which can come from either a local, network, or web source), keeping the tile content fresh.
The sample demonstrates the following scenarios:
Sending new text content to the tile
Using a local image (from the app's package or local storage) in the tile
Using a web image (http or https protocol) in the tile
Updating a badge on the tile
Updating a tile through a push notification, using Azure Mobile Services
Exercising the full catalog of tile templates
Enabling the notification queue, either regardless of tile size or selectively for specific tile sizes, and using tags to selectively replace notifications in the queue.
Setting an expiration time for a notification so that it is removed from the tile
Accessing images through different protocols and by using a pre-defined root path (baseUri)
Globalization, including localization, scaling of images, and accessibility
Avoiding duplication of content in tiles that show multiple stories
