    Frustrated I've tried about every weather app and none of them have working live tiles. Not sure if this is a Lumia or WP8 issue. I don;t remember this issue on my WP7 phone. Even weather apps with configurable live tiles and selectable update schedules never update the weather.

    Does anyone have a confirmed weather app where live tiles update the weather without any intervention?

    My preinstalled weather channel app updates. Seems to be limited to half hour updates though, which is pretty reasonable. That's basically what other devices and OS I have used are limited to.

    That said, I have heard other complaints regarding weather tiles. You are not alone.

    I second the MS app. It's not nearly as robust/feature rich as many of the other apps, but the live tile updates regularly and its easy to glance at the tile for temperature and conditions. I have a separate weather radar app installed for when rainy season comes back around.

    The weather channel app stopped working for me after its last update--oh well, I didn't like the ads anyway. Weather Flow is great.

    Weatherbug is one of the apps that I miss from Android. Yes, its on Windows Phone as well but the difference between the two apps is night and day. I paid for the premium version to remove ads and support development, and I loved the accuracy and the solid radar map. I would put down a couple of dollars for an add-free version of Weatherbug that was just as feature rich as the Android version but done with the metro style.

    You are pinning the livetile to the home screen, right? Swiping over to the apps and holding on the app icon to pin it will not give you live updates. Most weather apps have a "pin" button when you have the app open and running.

    Most "metro" style weather apps are really weak on the information side of things. The stock weatherchannel app, as fugly as it is, is the only one I like.

    All the weather apps I've tried so far won't give me the weather of wherever I am. They seem to bookmark my location on a list (in Nokia's weather app and MS's too). On android no matter where you are the weather widget will tell you where you are and what the local weather is for that location. I can't find one in WP8 that does this - they will tell me my default (home) location's weather unless I manually add wherever I am to the list of weather locations. Am I doing something wrong or could someone point me in the direction of a good app for this?

    I use WeatherMaster & you can set it up to use your present location or add a location. I find it accurate for my locations in the UK. I used Weather Pro a while back but didn't think it was all that good.

    Do you confirm that the live tile changes locations as you do, city/area to city/area, without opening the app? I think that is what Muessig is wanting...

    Yeah I'd like the live tile to change location as I do ideally. Even entering the app any app I've tried so far still only displays my current location. I like the way the Nokia variant live tile works but the way it sticks to the default location is a pain.

    EDIT: Seems you have to pay for Weather Master - is there not a free weather app that will give me information on my current location? Do I really have to pay for an app to get this functionality?
