    Using my new tile engine that I discussed earlier, I implemented a new version of the live tile which is now working! Background agent seems to be very stable and is updating every thirty minutes, give or take. Added some translucency and shading to make it visible and more readable against other tiles.

    -Posting lock screen images tomorrow or later, that's still WIP and is actually throwing errors.
    -Tile customization and lock screen customization won't be in 1.0, but you will be able to set the background color of the app from the accent color to shades of black to match the rest of the OS.

    Great job! It really good looking...you should really submit this app for review here at WPCentral. Are you going to make the transparent tile be able to toggle on and off?

    @Kraken Absolutely going to submit when it launches. For the tile, Looking into that, but any tutorial/documentation is probably irrelevant because I render tiles differently. Doesn't matter, as i'll just write my own code. It is absolutely possible, it's just a matter of getting it done before release.

    @Brad
    Once again, thank you.

    First look at the "Dark" UI option, which will of course be available in settings. The dark theme saves battery life as it displays less color, and also some users may prefer it to the light UI. If you look closely, you'll also notice that I added the "Auto" option in the units selection box. This selects units for you based on current location and is the default option. If you're traveling, just override it in settings.

    Menu isn't built yet but you would simply tap the location arrow similar to opening settings.

    I'm getting all of my friends pumped for this app. Any forecast.io weather app is something to be excited about. When do you expect the beta to begin? Just curious, take your time man!

    Great, and thank you for spreading the app around. I am expecting to enter beta late this weekend or if not, monday-Tuesday. I'm essentially finished - I just need to implement the trial mode and multiple locations. Yesterday, had quite a scare when Visual Studio crashed and I lost the main UI XAML file, but managed to decompile a test build to get the code back. That ended up taking all day and adding more time onto development.

    No, but the beta will uninstall itself (Or become inoperable) when the test is finished.

    Yes, sometime tomorrow, but obviously all of this is depending on timezones and if MS has to approve it. You will get an e-mail from me with the download link, as will all other beta testers.

    I just downloaded the trial on my 1520 and 1020. On the former it fails to connect to the internet. Regardless of mobile or WiFi connection and signal strength. On the latter it's working perfectly fine. Since the 1020 is running with everything set to US I believe the issue on the 1520 (running Germany settings) is due to the regional format which is using a comma instead of dot for decimal values. I've seen this many times before and it's easy to fix. :)
