    Unbelievably cool at the WP Store for $.99. Use any picture you want as wallpaper. Main color chosen remains for tiles.

    Cool apps. However, I always think the dark single colour background is the best option for the white fonts.

    Yeah, pretty cool. I've updated my Band's wallpaper to match my phone. Nifty!!

    Pimp My Band is very cool. But, maybe this is a coincidence and unrelated, when I tried to use my Starbucks app after installing Pimp My Band, the bar code for my Starbucks card no longer appears, just a black screen. I removed the Starbucks app from my Band and then restored it, but it still didn't work. I did a factory reset of the Band and the bar code reappeared.

    UPDATE: After the factory reset and hearing from that my experience may have been unique, I installed Pimp My Band again and installed a favorite lock screen. This time there was no problem with the Starbucks app. Everything has worked as expected for more than 24 hours. Still not sure what caused the Starbucks app to malfunction, but it was clearly not the fault of Pimp My Band.

    Does anyone know the exact resolution that the app is using? I formatted my wallpaper to 320x106 but at that resolution, the image is slightly stretched. It's very minor but aspect ratio irks mean when the person's face gets stretched skinny.

    I emailed the developer and he said the perfect size for the pics is 310x102. So, you were close.

    Update to the app today. Corrects a major flaw with the color of the apps. This color was disconnected from the app update process previously and even reverted back to the default, but it is now incorporated is the save sync process. Plus you can now pick any custom color in the universe to be the app color. Way to go!

    I whipped up this band background up in Paint.Net bandclouds.png

    I also found that the best dimensions are 310x102 (minus 10 pixels for the peek of the tile strip), here is one I made from the Nokia sample pics bandlighthouse.png

    Works perfectly. I was able to put a pic of my wife on it. I had the app crash once while searching OneDrive for the photo, but I was able to restart it and fix it.

    I think Microsoft should pay this dev a chunk of change and integrate this app into the main Health app.

    Does this work for the Lumia 635? Had it for the Blu Win HD but switched back to my Nokia today. Cannot find the app in the store and when I search for it on the web it says the app is not compatible with my phone.

    Hey guys, there's a whole (large) wallpaper thread. Several pages. Take a look- there's some good stuff in there.

    I'm about to submit to it, so it'll be up by the top again for at least a little while...

    Love the Pimp My band app but the app may be causing phone numbers of incoming calls not to show on the band screen. The band display is blank except for the phone icon on the left. When I reset the band to factory defaults the phone numbers are now displayed. The same issue happens with notifications. Anyone else experience this? Is there a solution that does not involve not using Pimp My Band?

    Mine shows calls just fine with PMB. What happens if you switch wallpaper?

    Per the PMB Developer:

    Hi Paul! Problem is not caused by the app but by the Band itself, that saturates his memory. You have just to reboot it 😊
