    Has anyone used a Flip Tile using App Builder?  I tried editing the AppManifest.xml file manually, but that just crashed the cloud compiler...

    Any ideas?

    Hi Daniel,

    You should be able to use TemplateFlip inside the WMAppManiifest.xml. I succeeded with the following:
    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
    <Deployment AppPlatformVersion="8.0" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/windowsphone/2012/deployment">
        <DefaultLanguage code="en-US" xmlns="" />
        <Languages xmlns="">
            <Language code="en-US" />
        </Languages>
        <App BitsPerPixel="32" Genre="apps.normal" Description="$Description$" PublisherID="$WP8PublisherID$" Publisher="$WP8Publisher$" Author="$Author$" RuntimeType="Silverlight" Title="$DisplayName$" Version="$BundleVersion$" ProductID="$WP8ProductID$" xmlns="">
            <IconPath IsRelative="true" IsResource="false">App_Resources\WP8\ApplicationIcon.png</IconPath>
            <Capabilities>
                <!--NOTE: During the build process, this section is merged with settings from the Project Properties. -->
            </Capabilities>
            <Tasks>
                <DefaultTask Name="_default" NavigationPage="MainPage.xaml" />
            </Tasks>
            <Tokens>
                <PrimaryToken TaskName="_default" TokenID="$ProjectName$Token">
                    <TemplateFlip>
                      <SmallImageURI IsRelative="true" IsResource="false">App_Resources\WP8\Tiles\Iconic\110x110.png</SmallImageURI>
                      <Count>0</Count>
                      <BackgroundImageURI IsRelative="true" IsResource="false">App_Resources\WP8\Tiles\Iconic\202x202.png</BackgroundImageURI>
                      <Title>$WP8TileTitle$</Title>
                      <BackContent></BackContent>
                      <BackBackgroundImageURI></BackBackgroundImageURI>
                      <BackTitle></BackTitle>
                      <DeviceLockImageURI IsRelative="true" IsResource="false" />
                      <HasLarge></HasLarge>
                    </TemplateFlip>
                </PrimaryToken>
            </Tokens>
            <ScreenResolutions>
                <!--NOTE: During the build process, this section is merged with settings from the Project Properties. -->
                <ScreenResolution Name="ID_RESOLUTION_WVGA"/>
            </ScreenResolutions>
        </App>
    </Deployment>

    Note, you still need to keep the title and the image paths relative to the project properties.

    I hope this helps.

    That worked like a charm...  Not sure what i did wrong last time.. I had copied a section out of my native version of the app, and apparently I had included something it didn't;t like..

    Now to go scrub the interwebs for how to update the tile from the Cordova/PhoneGap/AppBuilder world.

    If you know of a quick link, that would be awesome, but I don't expect you to do my work for me.. :)
