The tiles based widgets look the best and this why I like WP UI.

There not interactive compared to Androids widgets. Besides Androids widgets can look or do anything you want. Which is definitely not the case for WP tiles.

Any app on WP can be icon or live tile. For Android, I need to find the right widget, most of them look different, it creates unnecessary duplication, I can not put them in folder and it just feel and look very clumsy.

I do love zooper widget's ability to make your whole screen look SO incredibly gorgeously cohesive... but i haven't found a layout i really like yet.. but you're right. tiles look pretty sweet but the zooper style is way more than just tiles.

Live Tiles are lively and punchy hence the (Live). Tile based widgets looks inspired by Live Tiles.
