Weatherbug live tile not updating? There may be a temporary fix...

Yes, like you our WeatherBug Live Tile had stopped updating quite a few days ago. And yes, probably like you we went with the Weather Channel's app as an alternative (see review).

It turns out WeatherBug is well aware of the problem and it has to do with a bug related to interval times and updates. They seem to be on top of the issue, trying to resolve it with Microsoft. But until an update for the app comes out, they evidently recommend you set the update interval to 60 minutes.

Now, we had that as our update time on our HD7 earlier today and it still wasn't updating, so your milage may vary. Let us know if it worked for you or like us, you simply went to the Weather Channel.

  • I never got WeatherBug to work at all when I set my WP7 to Dutch regional settings. If I turn it to US it works fine. I turn it back to Dutch, and then it can't find my locations anymore, making the app useless to me. Other ppl have similar issues?
  • I never got my WeatherBug tile to update at all either (HTC HD7). I switched to The Weather Channel.
  • My weatherbug only updates in intervals of 2mins. So I set it to 62 minutes. They need to change the update interval slider
  • Did The Weather Channel get a live tile? I've not seen that. If it doesn't then why abandon Weather Bug just because they've got a bug with their live tile?
  • TWC got a live tile about 4 weeks ago and it's very nice (both in appearance and the fact that it works).
  • Think it stopped updating for me on 1/1. Always had it set for 60 minutes. Already had Weather Channel loaded on the phone so after about 8 hours of waiting just swapped them out.
  • I never got it to work so I installed the weather channel for the live tile. I still have the bug installed for when I want the full forecast because I like it better than WC but WC has the live tile for when i need to just glance down to see whats going on outside.
  • Seems Weatherbug's live tile has started updating again for me. Has been all day. Wonder if the alert has something to do with it? Cause it's also showing 1 alert. Anyway, just saying.
