|A string between 1 and 40 characters in length.||No|
The tile sizes, as expressed by their logo size, that should display the app's short name: square only, wide only, both, or neither.
This attribute can have one of the following values:
A wide version of the logo image. This image is displayed when the tile is displayed in its wide format. If this image is not provided, the tile can only display in the square format and cannot accept notifications based on wide template types. The user has the ultimate choice as to which format the tile uses, so it is a best practice to include a wide logo image. If a wide logo image is provided, the tile will be shown initially in its wide format. For more info about required logo dimensions, see Tile sizes.
For more info about how to specify the image in this attribute, see Remarks.

WideLogo image can be given as either a direct path to an image file or as a resource. By using a resource reference, you can supply images of different scales so that Windows can choose the best size for the device and screen resolution. You can also supply high contrast images for accessibility and localized images to match different UI languages. This feature also allows you to localize the ShortName attribute. For more info, see the Globalization and Localizing the package manifest topics.
