some users reported me problems with the windows phone 8.1 version of my app „Week „View. Please not that the current windows phone 8.1 is a DEVELOPER PREVIEW – not a final and stable version of the OS, so it is expected that it has some bugs.
UPDATE: It seems this problems are fixed with the current WP 8.1 Version of Week View, which is 18.104.22.168. Please install this update from marketplace, if you experience any problems.
I will list these problems with solutions here + try to fix all problems that are reported to me.
Update: Please see this thread, where some common problems are listed: http://forums.wpcentral.com/windows-phone-8-1-preview-developers/274574-developer-preview-8-1-bugs-defects-thread.html
Problem: Facebook appointments are shown and cannot be disabled
Solution: It seems that the WP 8.1 programing interface does not return the facebook calendar, when disabled in the WP internal calendar app but some appointments from facebook are returned. A user of week view 8.1 told me a workaround for this problem:
– Please start the native WP 8.1 calendar app and enable FB calendars.
– Start Week View, you should see the facebook calendars listed in the tab „calendars“ now. Here you can deactivate the facebook calendar(s), which you don’t want to see in Week View.
– Optional: After this is done, start the native WP 8.1 calendar again and disable FB calendar.
Problem: The live tile does not update
I got this problem reported by some users and unfortunately I have no solution for it at the moment but I am working on it. The „background task agent“, which updates the live tile was not changed in the WP 8.1 version of Week View and according to the documentation from MS it should still work. This problem is also mentioned in the WPCentral link above, please check this link for more details.
