How can we improve the Windows platform?

Reliable scheduled tile updates

Scheduled tile updates should not be canceled due to lack of network connectivity.

Currently, after losing a signal for a while, tiles stop updating because the maximum of three failures has occurred while no network connectivity was present.

After network connectivity is re-established, the tiles never update again, even after several days of good connectivity.

Instead, the tile update schedule should be resumed after network connectivity is restored.

    Thank you for the suggestion. Tile updates have been much more reliable with Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1. We recommend using the WinRT API in Windows.UI.Notifications (specifically TileUpdater.StartPeriodicUpdate) in current apps which will work reliably in universal Windows apps.
