Introducing the Cycle Tile Template

The cycle template cycles between a maximum of nine images. This template is great for apps that work primarily with images, such as photography apps.

Unlike the iconic and flip templates when sized to be either medium or wide, the cycle template does not have a large portion devoted to text across the tile.

The cycle template allows you to define a small image for when the tile is in its small state, and up to nine additional images that are displayed, in sequence, when the tile is in its medium or wide state (see Figure 13.2).
