In-App Purchasing with Stardock Tiles

Friday, January 27, 2012 by Island Dog | Discussion: Personal Computing


Tiles 1.0 has been released and is now available for download.  Tiles works by creating a side-bar on a user’s display. At the top of the side-bar are labels for each page such as ‘My Tiles’ or ‘Documents’ or ‘Apps’. Users can then drag and drop programs, documents, or website URLs onto Tiles. When the program is inactive, it appears as an icon. When it is active, it appears as a live preview tile.

Although it’s a free app there is an enhanced version available as well. You can upgrade to additional features or premium skins right inside the Tiles app itself.  This guide will show you how.

Open the Tiles configuration screen by right-clicking and selecting it in Tiles.  Choose the ‘Add features’ section.  Here you can browse through the available features and premium skins. There’s a variety available and you can just purchase the entire bundle for $9.95, or just individual parts.  You can also active existing purchases by entering your Stardock account information.

After you find the features you want and have added them to the cart, you can now begin the checkout process.  You will first be asked to enter your e-mail address.

Next you enter your information and payment method.

Next you’ll see a summary and then you just need to click Purchase to complete the transaction. 


You will now get a confirmation and your new features should be activated and ready to use!
