    Today i decided to enable the aditional line of tiles on my 720 and with more transparent tiles, the start screen looks better! but, the Weahter Flow, and Amazing Weather HD apps with the "metro tile" don't become transparent

    So there is another good weather app that have the transparent tile feature? should I wait for and update that meaby allow the transparent tile?

    Thanks and sorry for the bad english!

    Sure! Blue Skies looks great with a transparent wide tile.

    Not sure if it is available on non HTC phones but the HTC hub app is basically a weather tile and it's transparent. Love it.

    I too am looking for weather apps with transparent tile settings, and I can weigh in that neither the Vieather or Bing Weather apps have transparent tiles.

    Sure! Blue Skies looks great with a transparent wide tile.
    I tried it out and the front of the tile looks great, but whenever I use it as a wide tile the back just shows a garbled mess of text in the upper left corner.

    Not sure if it is available on non HTC phones but the HTC hub app is basically a weather tile and it's transparent. Love it.
    It is only available on HTC phones, as far as I can tell from checking through SysApp Pusher.

    Does anyone else know of any other possible weather apps with transparency enabled for the live tiles?

    I'm searching for this as well. Blue Skies is good, but the live tile updating every three hours isn't good ;-)

    Edit: I'm assuming that devs will begin to implement this into their apps, but until then my temporary solution is to pin the Cortana tile and, in my "interests" section, I only have the weather section turned on. It seems to be giving regular weather updates on the back side of the tile.

    Your HTC Tile works? For the rest of us, the Clock hangs and doesn't move. I've uninstalled it since it obviously isn't stable on the preview.

    Good call. It isn't optimized for 1080p, so there's a big gap at the top of my 1520 in-app. I checked to see when it was last updated: 7-12-12. Yikes! Still, it'll do for now.

    Just downloaded this app. It's shockingly fast. You barley see the app startup screen when launching it.

    ​I prefer the live tiles on Weather Flow and Blue Skies when they flip, but they're horribly slow in comparison.

    I use Amazing Weather HD as well and am hesitant to use a different program. My intuition is telling me that the developer will address this issue shortly.
