Daily doesn't always update

Sometimes I don't connect to a Wi-Fi until late in the day, and then The Daily won't update. It happened a couple times last week, and then again last night. I still had Columbus Day!

 

Also does this have anything to do with me using my own secure connection, or a public connection? It's actually happened at home and away so I'm thinking some other kind of glitch?

 

I've tried moving to My Library or Games and then coming back, but it doesn't make any difference. "All'' is checked on setting. Wi-Fi enabled.

 

As to Daily's contents, that's another discussion I'll weigh in on once this is resolved.!

Re: Daily doesn't always update

Mine doesn't always update either. I have to tell it to pretty much either turn off my Wi-Fi and use my 3G or something.

 

But I don't look at the Daily as Daily as I should. :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Daily doesn't always update

Tends to do this often to me.particularly as I normally have Airplane mode on.  Turning Airplane mode off, and trying to open the Daily it often doesn't update.  If I really want it to update, e.g. on Friday to see the new free book, I usually reboot the Nook.  It will then update the Daily.

Re: Daily doesn't always update

I actually love the Daily.  I, too, seem to have better results by updating earlier in the day.  I use 3G only.  I turn off airplane mode and go immediately to the Daily.  For the past two weeks, it has ALMOST always :smileyindifferent: updated.  If it doesn't, I've rebooted and then it updates--or at least Daybook and Unbound have updated.  (One day G&T got stuck.  But as that is my least favorite, I figured I could skip a day.)

 

I'm looking forward to -- hoping for -- the new, improved Daily in 1.5!

Re: Daily doesn't always update

My nook (wi-fi only) is usually in airplane mode as well, but I never had a problem with getting the Daily to update after turning off airplane mode and connecting. Although, have to say I used to check the Daily every day but after weeks of finding little or nothing of interest (except, of course, for Free Book Friday!), I don't check it every day any longer - maybe 3-4x a week.
