| Application description
TimeMe is a Windows live tile application which shows the current
time, date, weather and your current battery level all in one live tile,
the app also contains a stopwatch, timer, world clock and sleepscreen mode.

| Future ideas and changes
- Make TimeMe open source on Github too translate the UI.
- Design complete new interface for the new Windows (Phone) 8.1 version.
- Make new welcome screen with a few basic settings like metrics.
- Custom live tile design, drag and drop design your own tile design.
- Secondary live tile with different time zone and different settings.
- Old fashion designed alarm flip style clock with just the time on it.
- Round analog designed style clock with just the current time on it.
- Random background images on live tile every xMinutes from selection list.
- (WP8.1) Port the Sleepingscreen to the new Lockscreen api.
- (WP8.1) Calendar information on the TimeMe live tile.
- Weather background image on live tile, after downloading from Bing weather.
- Add option to remove and add new cities from world clock.
- Add battery usage status tab. (Will require more background tasks)
- Improved Weather background updates. (Can't manually connect wifi)
- WP7.8 support, missing required features. (No battery status support)

Also found a little hint about WP8.5 :o
(The Square size changed to 71x71 according to the appxmanifest but isn't updated yet in the sdk(?) so thats why it shows up, it also shows up with other code thats been replaced in WinRT like 'await FileOpenPicker.PickSingleFileAsync()' so I don't think it's that big of a deal)

The xap file is the application that should be sideloaded with XapDeploy.
For more information on how to sideload the installation read: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=4

And please note that this is a Windows Phone 8 application only.
You can also try another web browser.

Any chance you could add support for different/multiple fonts and possible add support for a background on the tile?
Also is there a chance it could support multiple tiles too (supporting multiple timezones/two small tiles)? Here's an example: [APP] Tile Clock. I had modified that one, but the background task is fried (Its from wp7.5 and the 7.8/8 version is only in 24hours) I had done some image swapping on that one.

V1600 will contain 3 different fonts, adding custom TTF font support will be hard to make because you can't easily transfer files to your phone which can be accessed (have the rights) by the application it self I will have to make some TTF http downloader... and all fonts have different heights/widths so they won't all fit properly without been modified to the proper size.
(You can try replacing the TTF fonts in the TimeMe Xap sideload version and then install it on your phone)

Custom (weather) backgrounds might be added in the future, v1600 will be final for now with only bug fixes coming in the next few weeks.

Two tiles / multiple timezones won't be added because I want to keep things minimalistic and it will impact the battery life more, I will consider adding a World Clock tab in the app it self :)

(V1600 will be released this week)

When will it be available in the store :D!
also, could you add the option to refresh the tile when tapping the tile? Like battery indicator apps?

I could have it in the store next week, I won't add the tap update function though because this might be automatically fixed by a jailbreak or something else in the future. And ill have to change alot in the applications code.
