PhoneTools is a set of tools that aims to help developers easily create beautiful Windows Phone 8 applications, with a particular focus on custom live tiles.

The WP SDK tile functions allow you to make nice tiles, but they're limited. What if you want to show more than 3 rows of text, or use a different font? With the SDK functions, you're out of luck, but with PhoneTools, you can create tiles that look like this:
