WinRT: Static Local Storage Settings

Application settings are useful for quickly storing some value for later runs of the application.

Using application settings enables us to quickly store anything we need between runs of our application.

Tiles provide a simple, sleek way to organize a list of items or navigation areas of your application. Perhaps the greatest example of tiled content is the Windows 8 start screen itself. It displays each of your apps in a sizable tile that can be rearranged and grouped to the users’ desire.
