I purchased this app for my Lumia 920 after reading a good review at WPCentral. The app works but only when you open it manually. It never updates the weather in the background and the live tile is never updated. I wish developers test the apps on a number of devices before releasing to public.

Works fine for me. Does it show allowed in the background tasks? What do you have the Live Tile update interval set at?
The guts of the 820 and the 920 are the same, besides i have seen positive comments from 920 owners as well.

The app is allowed to run in the background. I verified in settings. Similarly I pinned the live tile from inside the app. The problem is with the update only. I have constant WiFi connection, but in last 5 hours it never tried to update the weather or the live tile. I have set the live tile update interval to hourly. When I launch the app then it fetches the new weather data and also updates the live tile.

I pinned your location as well and it flips fine, ofcourse, can't tell before an hour if it will update.
May try un installing and re installing the app.

I also only have the problem with the update. I opened the app at 1 pm and the temperature was 27 degrees. Till 7 pm there was no update the tile was still showing the Sun at the smallest size. I opened the app and the last update time was still 1 pm. It then updated the weather data and the live tile at the same time.

I guess it is too much to expect year round nice weather. :-)
I will post if whether or not your weather updates for in about 45 mins.The SmartPhone Parade (2006-Now)QTEK 9100 > Samsung Blackjack > Treo 750 > Treo Pro > BB 9700 > Xperia X10 > Motorola Atrix > HTC Vivid > Lumia 900 > Lumia 820

Hi there, your weather updated on the Live Tile just now, in almost an hour from when I pinned it.
If yours still is not, un installing and re installing might work.

You mentioned that you have a constant WiFi connection. WP doesn't typically use WiFi if the screen is off; I don't know for sure if it turns on WiFi when it runs periodic tasks, but I doubt it. Do you also have a constant cellular/mobile signal? If not, I would guess that Amazing Weather is starting up, finding no signal, and stopping.

Hi sir, we are happy to have customers from UAE that is Amazing :), please do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can further assist you.
mean while try the following:
1- Make sure you have a cellular connection.
2- Try to pin a non - GPS live tile as your location might not be recognized by the weather service (try out for example Paris, and check if the tile updates)

Amazing Weather works wonderfully for me. The Weather Channel app didn't update its live tile properly and other weather apps I tried didn't look or act much better. Your phone doesn't happen to be in battery saver mode, does it? That may be too obvious, but then again it is often the most basic things we overlook.

1) I have a cellular connection. Emails are synced in the background on the cellular connection after every 15 minutes.
2) I tried both GPS and non-GPS tiles. It get the right location even with the GPS tile. I will set the location to Paris and test the live tile.

I have had this issue a few times over the weeks I have been using the app. The sure fire way I have found to get the tile updating again is to go into background task settings and block amazing weather. then click then box that says "turn bac kground task on when the app is launched again". Then I turn off my phone and back on. Then I launch the app then back out to the start screen. Works fine. This is for my GPS tile. I mostly am within a wifi connection, and almost always have LTE connection.

Anyways, I think the main issue with this app is that it is not able to refresh on the cellular connection. Even though my cellular connection works fine and I can browse the Internet and sync my emails, this app is never able to update the data over the cellular connection. Since most of the time the phone is in the standby mode and the wifi is off it never updates the weather. It only updates with the wifi. I hope this issue can be fixed in some later update. Thanks.
