    With the MSN updates today a total mess is there anyway to reinstall the previous version of each at all?

    Thanks!

    Weather app - UV Index no longer appears and the nightime cloudy background also appears during the day instead of the daytime one. Also bizarrely the main side tile is now the 3/5 day forecast instead of the current temp. Plus as well data is now very inaccurate for my location, especially wind speed and direction.

    News app - The font on the live tile is bold and ugly.

    Sports app - Live tile no longer works.

    Money app - Live tile has a photo on one side and the graph on the other. Huh????

    The only way would be if anyone downloaded the app before the MSN update and install the app manually.

    No, this won't work. Each app is tied to your own account, you can't pick up an app that someone else downloaded and install it on your own phone.

    There's no way to go back to previous versions of apps unless you downloaded the app yourself and then prevented any updates.

    In what way are the MSN apps now messed up? What aren't you happy with?

    Correction - Daytime cloudy wallpaper and UV index are now back!

    Still a shocker of any update all round though.

    Weather is totally useless now as an app.

    Microsoft can't even be bothered to create appealing apps for their own platform. It's a total facepalm move, and it's typical Microsoft, giving you an 'update'...that takes away functionality.

    They're trying to fix things that aren't broken. Still, I wouldn't say the apps are all bad

    Yeah, the others aside from Weather are still okay without being too much different.

    However after playing around with today I think the problem with Weather is how it's downloading it's data now. During the day the moon background would appear now and then and the UV Index was again absent despite clear sunny skies. Does anyone know how to contact the developer for it?

    I'm glad I didn't update those apps. And what the hell is wrong with sd card? It forces me to install them on phone -.-

    I have been in live chat with Microsoft support and they've escalated the Weather app issue with the developers, it's not downloading data properly outside of the hours of 6am-8pm EDT.
