Is WP7 breaking apps? Weatherbug, AP Mobile, The Weather Channel, Xbox Live

Tboggs13 asked on

I have three HD7 phones in my family and multiple issues.

On my son's phone, it will not launch Rocket Riot or Fruit Nina

On my phone, I cannot launch AP Mobile, The Weather Channel and the live tile for Weatherbug is not updating.

I have tried uninstalling the apps, rebooting, etc but results are inconsistent. I have also had connectivity issues with T-Mobile this whole time. Starting to wonder is there are system level dependencies that might be causing the problems.

The Rocket Riot developers indicated they would contact Microsoft and Weatherbug has publicly stated they are working with Microsoft on the live tile issue.

AP Mobile and The Weather Channel work fine for me ... no issues using data or WiFI.  Are you using a data connection or WiFi or both? 

I switched from Weather Bug to The Weather Channel when the Live Tile started to not update and since the change, I have been very happy with the Weather Channel.

I had a problem with the Weatherbug tile updating and contacted them. Their suggestion was to increase the update frequency (make it longer) which was neither really acceptable, nor did it work. I did uninstall and re-install that app and it seemed to restore the tile update. So far at least. It is set for 1 hr, which around here could mean it says sunny when it is actually snowing. The whole tile mechanism is a bit of a bizarre process IMHO. During the tile issue, I never had a problem with the actual application. It tracked what was displayed on my laptop/desktop, when I had access to both at the same time.
