    I know it can be done because Clock Hub used to work before he ruined it and Analog Clock works fine (both ~12MBs, 1MB clocks don't seem to keep time). I really want my digital clock back. It just looks nicer.

    Also best give the developer of Clock Hub feed back as to why you think he ruined the app. As Constructive criticism given to the developer is more productive than just posting on the forum. Furthermore leaving low star reviews (not saying you have, just speaking in general) without any explanation which are really not helpful to other users or developers at all.

    If it's specifically for 8.1, the clock can update itself every minute using the new APIs. If your phone isn't doing it. chances are you have blocked a task from running in the background that is needed or have battery saver on.

    Perhaps you should develop your own application if you are not satisified with what's available?

    That's a bit of a silly remark. I think the OP is asking that an app is published should work as advertised. Not everyone has the skills or time to make an app themselves. That's like saying the car I bought doesn't work as advertised. Are you asking the person to build their own. No of course not. I follow the notion that something made should work and if it doesn't (as reviews indicate) then fix it.

    I removed all my clock tile stuff because my phone always has the time right up in the right hand corner next to my battery indicator...

    There are NO full-width digital clock tiles that keep time. Prove me wrong. You can't. No, I don't want to stare at the microscopic clock in the corner. Only someone who has never used Android would think that was adequate. Why a usable clock, the most basic of phone functions, is not part of the OS is a mystery to me, right up there with quantum uncertainty. Why not just put one on the alarm clock tile?

    Well TimeMe works perfectly on my phones. With the smaller 4.5" and down phones the tile is FULL width if you don't use the extra tiles.

    Whats wrong with Clock Hub? On my Lumia 920 with DP it Works great. And it IS full Width capable, at least if you use wide tile in combination with two rows of tiles...

    I have never needed a bigger clock. If I need to glance on the clock while not using the phone, the lockscreen has a clock with a larger readout. If I need to look while using it, it's up in the corner, and is perfectly readable. I understand why people would want it as a decorative tile, but for CHECKING THE TIME, the WP already is usable.

    Because people keep asking for a clock tile, bypassing all the other clocks "built-in". Yeah, wasting screen real estate for a clock tile is a great use of your screen.

    Really...Screen real estate. Wtf, are you getting at, the home screen is personal so don't try to tell me what my property needs. And for the OP: TimeMe works perfectly and looks much better thank clockhub, but a problem u may have is that the app is not allowed in the background, turn this on in battery saver settings and it will perform much better.

    Did you see what I responded to? That post stated that there was no usable clock in WP. That's a ridiculous statement. If there's always one person who corrects ridiculous statements, that would be great.

    Like I said, I get the need for a big clock for aesthetic reasons, some tiles just look good and that's great. But saying that there is no usable clock is hyperbole.

    It doesn't even matter. The guy/gal asked for app suggestions, not ways you think he/she should use their home screen.

    I was just responding to one part of what he wrote, based on my experience. If someone writes something, I think they have to expect us to respond to it. He didn't ONLY ask for app suggestions.

    I have this app on an ICON with 8.1, 8.1 update and I am having problems getting the program to stay updated. Sometimes the time shows and at other times, it's frozen and nothing I have found will kick start it. The only way I've found to get it running again is to uninstall and reinstall. It usually last a few days before dying again.

    Enable it in the background always, and sometimes if you are on home screen for a long time live tiles stop updating I think after 30 seconds every live tile just freezes if you don't touch the screen so this messes with the time too.

    Hey I know. Let's all complain because Nokia hasn't added a...... let's say an additional camera button...... to the one that's already there. Then you can have two camera buttons. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. There's already the built-in camera button, but another one on the left side of the phone for left-handed people.

    Why on earth would a dev want to create a tile that just has time on it? The majority of users are not going to install, and much less, pay for such an app.

    Hey, I wonder what time it is. Let me look at my phone. Ok, I hit the lock button, there is the time on the lock screen, but it's probably wrong. Swipe the screen. Now I need to scroll to the tile with my time. Hey, there's the time in the top right corner. Nah, still need that tile. Ah, there it is. Ok, it's that same time as the other two clocks I've already seen.
