    Simple but I love it! This plus a privacy screen filter and it looks like e ink reader!
    And it helps with battery life!

    It's sold on Amazon and Ebay, I got mine on a trip to India. So far I love it, I like to keep my things personal and helps a lot in the nights or the cinema, nobody has noticed I'm using a phone (blocks/reduces brightness from every angle except yours)! Lowers the brightness and the quality a little bit, touch responsiveness is great and aesthetically it looks good with my black lumia and a black case, somehow it hides the nokia logo... It's thick and the screen can only be seen by the person who is holding the phone... if you like to share a lot what you are viewing on your phone, this is not for you! The angle of view is little!

    Now, going back to the topic of this thread.

    For the titles with icons I use an app called Group Tiles from the Window Store. They are just tiles!
    You can set colors of anything to foreground (theme accent), background (tiles background image) and obviously any color you can think of. It has some pretty cool icons, styles, sizes... very personalizable, just play with it!

    For the background color on tiles, just use any image with the color you like...

    For transparent tiles, use this app Transparency Tiles. It's free! It has most used app tiles, there's also a paid version which I guess has a lot more of app tiles. I have never used it.

    For weather I use Blue Skies, I like the live tiles! Useful, simple, accurate! Doesn't drain battery.

    For the clock I use TimeMe Tile, you can personalize it with events from calendar, alarms, weather, etc... pretty much everything!

    -->Group Tiles
    Just go to your design and on the "Icon Options" select the "Icon Style" !

    Is that clock hub on your screen?


    Edit: I think I saw it already. TimeMe, right?

    Not sure other than contact the app maker. I have mine set to show time and battery and I have set weather to update manually so that it is not trying to update it all the time.

    The only time it stops working is when it is updated (in the store) and when that happens I just force it to update the live tile in its settings.

    I actually had an issue as well when I first used it. Weather was good but the time suddenly stopped. It's still in alpha so bugs are expected. but i'm holding on to it as it's pretty neat.

    Oh and do you mind sharing that awesome wallpaper? :-D

    The only clock tile which works perfectly is analog clock tile.
    It have different clock faces also.
