Lost my favorites for the second time, time to move on. Use a different news reader.

Crashes like an android complaining about a network connection. Uninstalling.

Was a great app then stopped working. Say unable to initialize user. Check internet connection. Both my connections are on:-(

Great newsreader - I moved from Google Reader, have about 45 active feeds. Managing feeds is easy. Would be nice to be able to look at feeds individually, instead of ALL NEWS or by CATEGORY. Would be nice to see statistics on feeds (so I can weed out inactive ones). Transition from free app to paid app a major pain - should provide means to upgrade within free app. All that said, indispensable app for me. Update 28-Dec-2013: latest update will not let me mark pages of items as Read, so they continue to show up. THIS MUST BE FIXED. Lumia 920. UPDATE 12/3/14: can't read articles on Lumia 1020 or 2520 - both go to blank IE window, nothing loads, no indication anything is going to load.

Why is this app so flaky the last few months? Now it appears links are broken in most cases - if you want to get additional info, clicking on the article sends you to the browser without a link so you get nothing. This used to be a great app, but disappoints regularly now. Still no refresh and when returning to the app, many new articles won't show up until you exit Weave and then return again. Bad news for an expensive paid app

Works far better than the free version, but needs more options. Like removing the live tile counter, ability to choose colors for each of the preset layouts, and redesign the start page where it has each source as a moveable and sizeable tile. A $10 app should be more advance. Other than that, no performance issues.

Was, and remains the best. Needs transparent tile...

This is the absolute best news app available for windows phones. Been using weave since wp7. The developers have been updating and making improvements the entire time. Spend your coin on the paid version. It's the boss of news readers.

Live tile won't update unless you launch the app. I get sick of looking at the same live tile pic. Will keep app but minimize the tile and give that space to another app whose live tile actually updates regularly and automatically. And btw it has been busted like this for months.

This app has gone from 5-star to 1. Slow to load articles, tile notification doesn't work, crashes on certain feeds, will not refresh and load new articles. Not worth $10!
