This is the third article about the new HubTile control from the latest release of Windows Phone Toolkit – August 2011 (7.1 SDK). This time I am going to talk about freezing and unfreezing tiles. It is a good practice, from performance point of view, to freeze the animation of your tiles whenever they are not visible.
NOTE: For more information about data binding, the key properties, methods, events and the main features of the Windows Phone HubTile control you can take a look at my previous posts:
