    I have the Nokia one installed. I pinned it ad a large size tile and the graphics look great. The backside shows a 3 day forecast.

    You are pinning the livetile to the home screen, right? Swiping over to the apps and holding on the app icon to pin it will not give you live updates. Most weather apps have a "pin" button when you have the app open and running.

    Most "metro" style weather apps are really weak on the information side of things. The stock weatherchannel app, as fugly as it is, is the only one I like.
    This solved the issue for me.....thank you stig!

    I'm using World Weather Free. Very thorough. The live tiles work and it flips showing the High and Low along with current temp and then current temp with a "Feels Like" temp. Also, I think the live tile shows a scene from somewhere close to your location, since mine shows up with a beach type scene. Also, the scene changes with the time off day and current conditions. Looks to have Dawn, mid-day, dusk, and night tiles.... The program itself has some pretty neat features.

    Ah, spoke too soon. Using the pin button in the app got me the radar map on the live tile, but it still won't update until I open the app itself.

    WeatherMaster. Awesome live tile that actually works, and is readable on a 920 even with small size tile.

    Yeah, one type of app Windows Phone ISN'T lacking in is weather apps, haha.

    I like Microsoft Weather, Weather Flow and Weather Master, personally.

    Microsoft's Weather app works great. No problem with Live Tile updates
    I really like the Microsoft one. My only complain is that the background color of the tile is set to blue and cannot be subject to system schemes.

    When I was using it, it matched my accent color...

    I will be setting up my 920 this week...moving from a Titan II. On WP 7.5 Amazing Weather, and WeatherLive work beautiful. Live tiles update on location. Granted, it is done hourly or so, therefore, I could be in a new city and the tile has not updated yet. I compared the two, and couldn't decide, so I purchased both.

    Amazing Weather HD (paid version) works well for me. The tile didn't update automatically the first night, but has updated hourly since then for me.

    There's a new app that I just discovered with two live tiles next to each other you get hourly predictions on your home screen! It's called AAA weather. There's a free version and a paid one. Try it its my new go-to weather app!

    My Weather Channel Live tile only changes when I got into the app. Doesn't update ever.

    Do not pin the app to the Start screen. Instead go into the app, locations and edit a location so that the Live Tile is enabled. You can also select (limited selection) what appears on the front and back of the tile. This new Live Tile will update without you having to go into the app.

    The german App "Weatherpro" works great and was by the way the most precise weather app for iOS!
    I also use WeatherPro on all my devices including Windows Phone.

    It is the most accurate weather app I have ever tried and it looks great also.

    Another vote for Amazing Weather HD. Works well for me, and has tons of info available on the tiles, in different sizes. There's also great lock screens available as well.

    I use both the lock screen and the larger live tile, and they both update regularly.

    I'm actually trying out Bing Weather for my home screen live tile right now. I love the clean look of it, although in still using Amazing Weather HD for the lock screen. Bing Weather doesn't have the largest tile support right now, and it doesn't have a lock screen feature, either.

    I still stand by AMHD for a nice, clean weather experience though. On another note, if Bing Weather makes a few changes, like a large live tile, or even a flipping medium tile, along with lock screen/bing images support, I'll probably switch.
