    Question, by any chance, does the weather app update in 10.3 when it's reduced to an active frame? It's kinda useless on 10.1 as an active frame as it just keeps showing what ever the temp was when it was first reduced to an active frame. Hoping since 10.3 I think someone posted, you can "pin" an active frame that maybe they update while pinned?

    Thanks!
    And I see I was wrong they do update for me too in 10.1 but it looks like it's every 15-30 min, my temp stayed the same forever and it changed when I opened the frame so it fooled me and I thought it wasn't updating at all, oops!

    I'll jump right in and say I hate how active frames doesn't jump to the top in 10.3.

    This better be customisable

    One more question, can a person "pin" the home screen like this and have it stick so even if you power of and on they will still be there?

    Yup, but they show as ghost active frames, maybe that will change in later builds.

    Just want to point out, the weather active frame will auto update on 10.2.1.2101 as well.

    That is kinda stupid to be honest (no offense), why would you need a active frame telling you who you are talking with when you already know that, the current setup is really good, it shows you contacts updates as they happen, which is more useful don't you think? That's why I find the Whatsapp active frame to be useless.

    Considering you can long press active frames to rearrange them now (.296) I wonder if that's an early indication of pinning?

    Yes it already has pinning, as far as I know.

    Sounds like they are going to make the active frames more widget-like and have them hang out on the main home screen, I hope they make the frames a bit better then. I'd like to be able to have this info (the clock is already cool, evernote is already cool, but I added info to the weather and calender frame showing how I think it should be)

    Also that concept for interactive frames that's been floating around the forums, like having buttons on the music frame that can change the song without opening the app.

    You get to move them now...re-arrange them as you like.

    Just wanted to clarify, when I say pinning I mean so that they don't move around when I switch apps (I like the weather on the top right). 10.3.0.296 which I'm running doesn't do that, just rearranging.
