    Guys,


    I am doing some final testing for my app 627.AM for WP7.8 and have found that the wide live tile just doesn't get updated at all. The normal sized one and small are updating fine...

    I have noticed the wide tile image on the my phone's main screen does get re-rendered, however for some reason it still picks up the old image. As soon as I resize it to normal or small, it shows the updated image.

    I can't find anything wrong with my code... Just wonder if some of you have experienced similar issues on your WP7.8 phone with the latest update 8862? I seriously wish it's my code not that they still haven't fixed this bloody thing.


    Thanks,
    Justin

    Nope. 627.AM updates just fine on my Lumia 710 running WP7.8 .

    Are you testing through the WP7.8 emulator or through an actual device?

    Actually I am testing a new version for 627.AM. Yeah the one you are using should work fine as you are not using the wide live tile.

    My problem is with the wide live tile and it's not updating...

    I just want to know if anyone has any issues with apps that support wide live tiles on WP7.8.

    Wide live tiles are working, with the exception of the weather channel app for me.

    Dude, your app is awesome...any plans to add custom songs as alarms? That would be great.
