    Currently submitted trial has bug. Working on new version which doesn't disable background task and does not disable changing home town in trial, instead trial will have ads. Will update here once all the certification stuff completes.

    New update has been submitted, once certification is complete it will be available. Update adds trial.

    v1.3 - 7/14/2012
    - Added trial. Trial disables background task to update live tile and will disable changing hometown location after 2 days.

    @moc426

    I noticed something odd if you can address or correct me if I'm misunderstanding how the app works. I'm using the paid 1.5.3.0 version.

    If I didn't allow the app to use current location, the first weather info always results in an error message even if I entered a zip code. When I allowed it to use my location just once in the Hometown screen, it pulled the weather information just fine and works well even after after turning location off since then (I don't like to keep location on). The issue now is that the live tile is displaying both the location retrieved weather for my area and the zip code weather I entered originally - resulting in a tile with the same weather info twice. Anyway to remove one? Note, in the app, only one location is displayed as I removed the zip-code location.

    Thanks!

    If one location only is present on the app, you can click on update tile to reflect that. Or you can wait for it to auto update.

    Thanks moc426. I solved it by adding a second location, clicking update tile, and then deleting the second location. But to restate what appears to be a cleat bug: not allowing location services at least once will repeatedly give an error message; and then show duplicate weather info on the live tile once you do.

    Nice app, I hope you take my findings with good intentions as I think your app is great. My only suggestion to improve would be to make the temperature and/or icon appear bigger on the live title when only one location is being shown.

    - Added new setting to select between 1, 3 and 6 hour interval to update in background task. Trial users interval is 6 hours only. Note if your location has changed, the tile will update ignoring the interval.
    - New for Windows Phone 8 the medium tile size is taken advantage of for bigger font and non-scaled up tile. Bigger, bolder and beautiful.
    - New for Windows Phone 8, back tile now displays 5 day forecast for BOTH locations thanks to the larger medium tile.

    Weather Smiles 3.1

    - New Simple Tile, simply tap on Simple Tile in settings under the live tile pivot. This is a cleaner, larger font live tile with no other configuration. Of course this live tile is transparent as all Weather Smiles' tiles, so you can use it with your start screen backgrounds.
