    Hi

    I just got myself a Lumia 920. It's my first Windows Phone and I'm loving it so far. It's absolutely beautiful.

    There's just one thing driving me a little crazy. Where's the clock tile? There doesn't seem to be one on the phone and I can't find any decent clock tiles in the store. Is this a problem or am I missing something. Any help/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    There is no clock tile. But the time is visible in the upper, right corner all the time:

    It's only available on HTC devices, because of the HTC app, as far as I know.

    There seems that there are restrictions on how often tiles can be updated that would prevent this fall on working for a 3rd party app, and Microsoft doesn't provide any native clock tile. Instead the only option is the clock on your lock screen and status bar thing.

    Unfortunately, for those of us with old eyes there is no live clock tile. I would pay a lot for a live tile with a nice big font so I could see the time without my glasses. As it is I have resorted to pressing the power button twice, once to turn off the screen and then again to bring up the lock screen wo I can see the big clock there.

    I'm hoping MS opens up the API in the next update and allows a third-party app.

    In fact there is no true life tile, how funny is that?! All after market tiles updates no faster than 30 minutes, which makes the battery app works half it suppose to do.

    That's not entirely true... if an app uses push notifications it can recieve updates as they come in... FB, Twitter, etc...

    Funny thing is even notification is a hit and miss.

    Hmm. The lack of a clock tile seems like a glaring omission. The little clock in the top corner is not really adequate.

    I sure hope they fix that.

    Otherwise, I'm in love with the phone.

    You can also see the date/ time on the lock screen when you turn on your phone. Just another option...

    Yeah I realise that.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not looking for an excuse to ditch the phone. I love it. I can't put it down.

    It's just a little annoyance.

    There was a bit of a push to bring an App called TimeMe to the attention of Nokia to perhaps get them to take it on, given that it's one glaring (OS Based) flaw is that it can only update every 30 mins. Sadly nothing seems to have come of it, at least not yet.
