This is my most used news app. I have two reasons for not scoring a 5. For any pages that have any horizontal movement, swiping right will automatically return you to your list of articles if you've swiped to the left border of the page. It is very inconvenient for your article to automatically close and loose your position. My second reason isn't major however with recent updates, some of the other news apps have improved their aesthetics making Weave not as visually appealing compared to others. With these shortcomings, weave is still by far the best of them all. It's fluid, you can choose the categories your most interested in and even select the sources for those categories. Almost a 5. Great app on my HTC Titan and even better on my Nokia Lumia 920. Update: Now when you view a category the app will not allow me to go back to view another category. The only work around I've found is to exit the app from multitask view and relaunch it.

A very efficient app for keeping tabs of news. I hope it gets an option for a transparent tile. The option for Weave to speak article is also great bit I wish it could have a female version of the voice.

One of my most used apps. Works great a lot of the time. My only complaints are that sometimes the app is unable to display the article so i have to load it with the browser. The other complaint is that it does not handle pictures very well. Pictures sometime don't load, and when they do, are sometimes too small to see; there should be zoom capability.

Good news reader. Syncs w/ my Windows Phone

Large tile on 8.1 would be a nice addition, also ability to pin individual feeds to the start screen. Thanks!

Simply the best RSS reader around.

Lightning fast, easy to use, and visually appealing. If I had to make a suggestion, I would say that the "All News" section should allow the categories panel to be hidden or allow to be panned off stage making more room for more news items. Also, please support 8.1's new side-by-side sizes.

This has quickly become one of my favorite apps, and - but for 2 flaws - would be rated a 5. The inability to sync with their Win 8 app is unfortunate, as the idea of a single news reader in sync with me across my devices is too alluring to ignore. I also wish they'd fix the "speak article" feature as its unable to handle dashes, apostrophes, quotes, etc. (instead spelling out hex/html codes for them). But I'm optimistic both of these will be fixed (hopefully soon)!

Great app, one issue with sharing

Very versatile, and it can also play videos that are embedded in the blogs I read. Great work! One issue I am having is that when I choose to share it is not working. If my twitter app is not running, then I get an error on weave. If I run the twitter app in the background and then share from weave, then it appears to share, but when I go back to the twitter, it says "bad authentication data", and it didn't really share the tweet. Thank you for the app!!

Needs a few tweaks to live up to best wp app ever

It's a great app, but some of the design decisions they made could be better, for instance the category tiles and back button on left hand side are a bit too dark. I prefer the windows phone variant of this app to the new windows 8 one. It would also be great if you could import your preferences from the wp app into this one. There seems to be a way to link by Microsoft account but presumably that only synchs between pcs.

Decent Newsreader

Light, fast, easy to add feeds and get started. I would like to see a way to easily move on to the next article when I'm in reading mode for any article. I should be able to swipe left or right and move to the next or previous article without having to tap on the black part of the screen and then tap on another article. Also, I should be able to pin a live tile per section I have created! :)
