Live tile doesn't work with Google Reader, a little disappointed with that considering all my feeds come in through Google Reader.

The live does work(sort of) with Google reader. But to update the tile, you have to launch the app. Basically, it doesn't download any news items in the background, which kind of defeats the purpose of the tile. I don't wanna see something I've already read. Disappointing. Weave also got updated last night. Don't really know what changed. Still no live tile in that.This I feel is a broader problem with either WP7 or the mango apps. Somehow, every few days, one or more apps will stop updating in the background. The bg application settings also doesn't let you switch it on. Even with the checked option saying "Turn on bg updates when app is launched next", it doesn't really do anything. BBC News just started doing it this morning for me. Earlier it was WPCentral. The solution seems to be to re-install the app which sucks.

Hello guys, you make a mistake, live tile with google reader (feed or group) are auto updated each 30 minutes !!!THe only live tile not auto updated is the normal group (not sync with google reader because we need to do one request by feed I'm the group)So :- RSS feed : auto updated- YouTube channel : auto updated - google reader group: auto updated- google reader feed : auto updated- normal group : not auto updated

Hi Rudy, nice app but it doesnt seem to pick up all the feeds from a site, eg BBC Technology & BBC US & Canada, USA Today technology dont come up in the search results for BBC. Also if you pin a feed then use the pinned tile to open it when you hit the Back button it goes back to the main program instead of closing.

For the back button, it's the behavior that I wanted, but I can't add an option to choose ;)
