    Thanks for the suggestion Jason, but the front of the tile stays blank until I reopen the app again. Strangely enough the back of the tile does show 5 day temperature forecast. And because I like this app so much it frustrates me no end!
    Any suggestions or fellow frustraters are welcome..

    This bug has never been reported before, and is one of those things that I can't fix unless I can reproduce it in an emulator with debugging enabled. If I knew where to start, it would be fixable. The only thing that I can recommend is to simply wait for future updates, as sometimes a feature addition results in a code rewrite of the area that is causing the bug, therefore fixing it.

    It is supposed to go blank for a few seconds while creating the updated tile, bit no more then that.

    I trust you had a good break? Awesome effort you are putting into this - thanks. I look forward to see what you have planned for us as this app develops.

    Of course. Planning quite a few things for the next version, namely a suite of storm tracking features, more themes, weather alerts, and moon info, to name a few new features, with an android/ios/win8 port probably the next major update.

    Any chance of animated radar in next update?

    I need to find a source of radar map tiles that allows it and is free, so probably not. Once I find that, the actual implementation will be rather simple.

    Any way for the app to notify us of a update?

    Isn't that something your phone should be doing?

    Ah for some reason there is sometimes a descent delay on alerting I got updates, I got a little spoiled by Google Play and iOS 7 with auto updating

    Doesn't Windows Phone 8.1 have auto-updating? (Sorry I still didn't get the update)

    The update isn't out yet, the recent posts are a teaser of upcoming features. It'll be a few days still. I guess the format of the earlier posts may have been confusing.

    Encountered quite a few setbacks with the severe weather system. Delaying the update as it is quite buggy and, to be honest, a mess of exceptions and errors. Light theme also seems to be causing some problems with font colors. Everything else is working fine.

    I'm surprised that forecast.io doesn't have a way to animate the radar. I imagine its a basic loop of radar images from x hours to current with a speed to display it correctly. I was wondering how do you see the min by min forecast? Currently in a storm and can't find it. I'm in Tennessee

    Take a look at the "this hour" section. If it's supported in your area, it will say [storm] stopping in [x] minutes, etc.

    Forecast does have a way to animate the radar, but I don't use that for a radar source. Why? Because they don't allow developers to access their radar. Quite annoying to say the least.

    Edit: Animated radar can be that basic, but it can also be VERY advanced in order to make the image smooth. It can almost be a video [in quality and FPS] if done properly. I'm going to make it like that if I make it. I'm not going to make a choppy 1 fps radar GIF.

    I understand now, so that's min by min :) so forecast.io don't allow you to use their radar? That's messed up

    Yeah the concept always sounds easier than the implementation

    Exactly - they restrict that feature so their "Dark Sky" iOS App can't be touched by the competition... I'm also looking into making the minute by minute a graph for readability, but that's not in the next update.

    Animation really only shows the path the weather is taking. Will you implement voice commands eventually?
