    What did you do to make it live? It does not work on me? Any tips? Though not big deal to me with transparent tiles but having that just a bonus. Just look my start screen look more beautiful!
    I already mentioned what I did to make it live. I didn't do anything else, simply followed what Daniel said.

    Is there a consensus among most developers to update their app's live tiles to include the iconic view?

    It's "partially" working. Everytime I open the app and check the news, the tile looses its transparency for a few minutes before becoming transparent again. there's something to fix here.

    Week View 8 (after recent update)

    I'm not sure if I'll use it too much (after the update to the native calendar), but I like the month tile at least, and this now looks nice next to the native calendar.

    Just chime in here, my apps VBA8 and VGBC8 have been updated to support transparent small tile, it can be activated in settings -> general.

    WPCENTRAL has no transparent tiles too or only mine? I've seen Daniel showing 8.1 with transparent tiles on wpcetral. I paid on the app btw!
    The WPCentral app only turns transparent temporarily when you just let it sit there. Once you enter the app, to check the news for example, it once again turns to the accent color. Leave it alone again and it becomes transparent. I know that Jay Bennett knows that the app does this and posted this in another thread:

    You are using a preview for developers which is not yet fully supported by apps. We will be updating in due time. For now please try using the iconic tile style in our app
    So it looks like what we have here for now is the temporary solution.

    There is a separate app listing called "Maps" on my app list. Furthermore it has a different icon than "Here Maps", I'm presuming everyone has it and if not it perhaps it is just for Lumia devices only. Since I don't have an Ativ S or a HTC 8S / 8X I can't check.

    This is what I've observed as well.

    Has anyone found a transparent weather app?
    Weather Flow has a transparent tile.

    Bing Weather, Skype, and OneDrive need transparent options, imo.

    Good thread!
