    Which apps are you having trouble with? All the ones I have been using with my Gen 1 Band works with my Gen 2.

    Are you saying you are experiencing problems? If so, which version of Windows are you using on your phone? Perhaps that may be an issue.

    So far the custom wallpapers i've tried using apps made for the Band 1.0 leave a black bar on the top/bottom... since they're made for a smaller screen size.

    Oh, interesting. I just use my own custom wallpapers. Also, I use Pimp my Band to update my Band's wallpaper. Haven't had problems with Band 2 going that route.

    I second that! I too use the Pimp My Band App and it seems to size fine for me. Sorry Noahma is having issues... What app do you use for the custom BG?

    This app gives me an error on my band 2... "an error occurred during the process. please make sure your band is nearby and paired to your phone."

    Decided to make a different background for my Band as I have had the previous one forever:

    I am using Windows 10 mobile, and I have the same issue as others. It automatically crops the image. I was using larger images and having it crop them. I tried using a 320x128 image, and now I am getting an error. I can't even upload the images that previously worked. Oh well, I guess I am stuck with it for now until an update is released, or maybe I will give FanBand a try.

    Yup, I figured that was the problem. I didn't have any issues with Band 1 on Windows 10 though. :(

    On top of that, Unband doesn't seem to want to play nice with the latest Windows 10 build on my Surface. I guess I'm just going to have to wait until Pimp My Band is updated!

    Sorry for the dumb question...
    I just got the Band 2, and have it sync'd to my Android device, but also have a Lumia Icon. I love the backgrounds in FanBand, but can't sync them to my device because it's already paired to Android. How can I get the backgrounds on my Band? I also have a Surface Pro 3 that I can use if that works as well.
    Thanks!

    Thanks to this thread I was able find a couple apps in the Apple Store to change the wallpaper on my Band 2. I am loving this thing more and more after selling my apple watch
