    I have for quite a while wanted a good clock tile that displayed the correct time in large letters and after trying several can not find one that actually keeps and displays the correct time. The last one I uninstalled yesterday was "Clock Tile DYI" and it worked great for several days and after the last update quit showing the correct time. It also changed to the default tile and I could not change it anymore. I also have tried 4 others but none would just have a large readable clock on my home screen.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a clock with a live tile that actually works? I will appreciate any suggestions. And thanks...

    It doesn't show the time on the tile, All it shows is the words Time Me. I want one that shows the current time "On the Tile" and keep it updated like any clock or watch.
    I don't think that is to much to ask!

    TimeMe does work, there's just a bunch of settings you need to figure out. While I like the app, setting it up can be confounding.

    I found the settings but what I choose does not appear on the tile. See screenshot. How do I get it on the live tile?

    I tried (3 times) that and nothing changes. I set up the way I wanted the tile but I can't get anything on the tile except for what the screenshot shows.

    Unpin ALL the tiles you don't want, then pin the tile(s) you want.

    go to the settings >> TILE & force live tile background update

    I unpin the tile. Go to settings and set up the tile I want, size, font and color and then go to pin the tile and force update and what I choose does not show up. If I force the update before I pin the tile it still does not pin the tile I choose. All I get is what the screenshot shows.

    Its been nearly 15 minutes and the tile I choose is still not there. I wish there was a way to get Remote Assistance like on my Win 7 desktop then someone could show me how to set it up.
    Guess I will still look for just a simple digital time app.

    Did you add the tile from the app itself?

    Did you add it to Battery Saver?

    Start screen clock is an alternative.

    How to add it to Battery Saver? It is listed there and is allowed to run in the background.

    I finally got the app to display but I had to choose a different tile format. It will not support a wide tile only tiles the same size as on my screenshot. I wanted one twice as wide.

    Thank you all for your help.

    You can go to the app list press and hold, and a white box will pop up, pick pin tile this can be done with all apps but some may want you to pin from inside the app settings.

    Oh, now I understand what you meant. I just didn't think of that. And yes I did pin the app from inside the opened app, but in my screenshot the reason there were two is one from in the app and one from the app list. Now the only one on my start screen is from inside the app and it works. It just wasn't the style and size I wanted but at least it works and updates the time minute by minute.

    You need to update the click using the button at the bottom.
