I've tried everything:
Medium tile/small tile
Location services on/off
And still my "live tile" will not update until and unless I tap it to open the app, making the concept of a live tile pointless.
Am I the only one or are other people experiencing the same thing?
Does anyone have a fully-functioning live tile for Bing Weather?
I was using Accuweather before and while not perfect, it at least updated the live tile 50% of the time!
Thanks in advance

How many apps do you have shown in the background apps in settings. That could be causing a failure to update in weather or other live tiles Also check your settings in the app maybe your automatic update was turned off somehow or check and see if the update data only while on wifi if set to on.Your smartphone is only as smart as YOU let it be!

Weather app updating fine for me here.
Also, has anyone noticed his beautiful the live tiles are for the Bing Weather app?Reviver of Forum Games! I'm TheWPCTraveler over on Nintendo Life, as well. You'll also find me over at gamrConnect as well, because I like numbers.

I have unlimited 4G so I never use WiFi. That wouldn't be an option. I mean, it's not like I care if it updates or not, but if MS can't get their own apps rights... well.....

My tile updates. I remember when I first installed it I was hoping for a tile that flips but I guess it doesn't work that way. In any case the weather and background do change. I'm always online either on WiFi or 4g

I've given up for the time being and switched back to Accuweather. Their medium tile actually flips and shows the "Feels Like" temperature, which I find very useful.
Let's just hope this one keeps updating like it used to! Even my WPCentral toast notifications and live tile updates have stopped.... something may not be right...

UPDATE: Doh! I do have the app social beta installed.. I was looking for Nokia App Social, but it shows up as just App Social.. Uninstalling and rebooting to see if that fixes anything.

That did it! I uninstalled App Social and my live tiles all started working again. I did unpin and repin my Bing Sports and Bing News tiles, but I did NOT unpin the Me tile so I think simply uninstalling App Social did it. (I did reboot after the uninstall, but that might not have been needed either.)
Thank you, sir Jetface!

bug report on Nokia's Beta Labs site now (and posted a link to this thread) that I know I wasn't the only one seeing the issue. I'm wondering if the people in the other thread you mentioned are also running App Social.

Well, App Social is not available in Canada yet, so that (unfortunately) was not the culprit for me, so I just zapped all my Bing apps and restarted my 920. Hopefully all will revert back to normal. If it does, I might try just Bing Weather to see if it takes down all the live tiles by itself or not.
