Like the title says, the app is no longer updating the Lockscreen image.
I reinstalled the app. It is enabled in the background Tasks. I know the Bing image is one day behind the bing.com homepage, but still it's not updating the lockscreen image.
It will refresh the lockscreen image as soon as I open the app. It's not updating the live tile either (pinned via the app).
Anyone else have this issue ?

Guys, I love WP and have been on WP7 since launch and jumped to WP8 on launch too.
But sadly and particularly with WP8 something happens that makes your tiles stop working (I have seen numerous triggers for it) mine was leaving my time zone (weird I know) but on two separate occasions after leaving my time zone when I returned to the UK my tiles stopped working and the Bing image would not update either.
Spent lots of time trying to fix but the only thing that does fix it is a hard reset.
Your tiles will be as good as new and hard reset is no big deal now you have backup (unless you got loads of save games that is)

Seems to be working ok for me. I installed the app for the first time yesterday and configured the lock screen to use Bing Daily with the weather overlay. I had the Tibetan Monastery yesterday and this morning, it changed to a night photo of Wembley Stadium.
Will see what happens tomorrow.
Live tile updates appear to be quite slow for me, however. I have mine set up to update on an hourly basis - live tile gives me an update time of 18:22, but the current time is 19:53.

It's unfortunate that MS is not doing anything to fix this issue.

Ok. It might be worth setting your lockscreen to be Bing (not Amazing Weather) and seeing if that updates on a daily basis. That's how my phone was set up before installing AWHD and using that for the lock screen.

I had the same issue with tiles not updating. I started uninstalling apps one at a time and monitoring the tiles. When I uninstalled amazing weather everything started working again. It is a shame because I love that app. For now though I'm living with the weather channel and my phone works.

I'm using a Lumia 928 on Verizon (obviously) and I'm having the same problem. Amazing Weather HD isn't updating its live tile or the start screen and I'm no longer receiving WPCentral toasts or live tile updates. I think my battery app is having the same troubles, as the resolution on the battery life graph has gone down quite a bit since I had these problems.
