    Ive uninstalled and reinstalled and still get no update to the live tile unless i open the app. Its really getting annoying. My lockscreen battery percentage doesnt change if i dont open the app either. It has access to background tasks as well.

    Anyone else with this issue? Any ideas or options for a different battery app that works as well without causing drain?

    I really like battery sense, but at this point its becoming nearly useless.

    I don't use it but I do know that some apps conflict or break functionality with existing apps. I've had it happen with a pandora app on my 900 once. Once I got rid of the pandora app, my phone quit jumping into that voice recognition mode constantly. Unless that battery app is of bad design and you cannot find an answer, I would at start at the last apps you've installed.

    I use Battery Status. I am happy with it, it doesn't seem to cause any noticeable battery drain.

    Hope that helps.

    Supposedly there is a 30 minute refresh on the live tile.

    So wait 30 minutes and see if it refreshed

    Ive had it not change for many hours, then when i open the app the battery goes from like 80 to 55 or something because of how long its been.

    Same thing happens to me! The live tile doesn't update until I open the app, and neither does the lock screen icon. It didn't used to be this way, it worked for a while, but then stopped a couple days ago. Bug?

    Same thing here. Same happened to my wife. Both times it stopped updating. Then on my wife's phone it stopped working altogether. She reloaded it. Still uses it. I was having battery drains on my phone. When it stopped working I uninstalled, and have never reloaded it. Since then most of my battery problems went away. I'll just use the phone meter from here on. I'm not sure what my wife has going on, or what she is going to do.

    More than 6 apps approved for running in the background? I think 6 is the cap.

    I loved this app until it starts to not update the tiles for me too. I tried unpin and repin the tile, block and then unblock the background task, uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Still it won't update AT ALL no matter how many hours. If I don't open the app it could show me fully charged for the whole day even thought it's drained, both live tile and notification

    Same problem. Uninstalled it. With 88% charge left, it was showing a 4 hour life remaining. Had to uninstall it.

    I had the same issue, I had to hard reset my phone and reinstall all my apps. Everything was working fine till i did the Nokia Audio/Network+ enhancements update.
    After that all my tiles stoped updating (Battery Sense, Weather Flow, CNN, Red Bull ...)
