Default Now application, a complete fail

Since NOW (samsung weather/news application) was released about two years ago i've always encountered a lot of problems. At the beginning I didn't care a lot, but as Mango was released, the problems started becoming worse and worse. Every, and i really mean EVERY, 2-3 weeks live tile stops working for 1 week at least than samsung updates the application (without a lot of success). This happened in october, december, february, march and nowadays.
Since 25/04/2012 live tile stopped completely working even if they updated NOW (2.11 version). I think that this application will never be fixed as it should ...what do you think? Am i right? Does your live tile work yet (almost impossible)?

Same issues. It's a shambolic app and I deleted it for good upon them breaking it again with this recent 2.11 update.

I use Microsoft's recently updated Weather app for instead. Only uses a single tile too.

Since the latest update my Live Tile has stopped working, and after installing the update I've found my phone to be switched off so now I've deleted it and the phone hasnt turned off since.

Wish I hadn't updated the App as the previous one worked fine for me and I quite liked the layout of the tile. Now using the Microsoft Weather App but I dont like it as much, maybe cos there's no colour and its just the same colour as everything else on the home screen.

I'm not going to use microsoft weather application because it's awful (as you said). I would suggest that you download "amazing weather" which is a lot better, but is costs 2€ (maybe 1,5 or something like that). This one has got some "amazing" effects. However i think i'll wait for Samsung to update again "NOW" hoping this time the tile will work.

my lifetile actually never worked, so I am using weatherflow, because it is the one with the most beautiful tiles...

I found the solution too. I had to clean and install again the application. But this does not change my opinion

Actually, there IS an issue....live tile does not work anymore. I understood I had to clean and reinstall the application and it had been working for a week. Since the new update pushed out today it has stopped working again...
