	• Hotfix

11/17/2014

	• Updated API calls to reflect the new Weave service that was rolled out last weekend
	• Fixed bug where settings screen would close on navigation
	• You can now set a value of "never" for unread article delete time

1/8/14
	• Option to set article delete times for read/unread has been added back in
	• Now displays 32-bit color instead of 16-bit.  May affect performance - please let us know if it does!
	• *NOTE* we are listening to all your feedback from the last version.  We are working on a bunch of updates to add:  new article count back at the top of the article list page, "repeater" buttons for changing pages faster, faster server performance, and a lot more.  Thank you for your patience and support these past few years!  We are aiming to make Weave the *best* news app out there.

New Cloud API
	
	• Updated to use the new Weave cloud services powered by Windows Azure - a news service similar to Google Reader or Feedly!
	• Your feeds and articles are saved in the cloud, accessibly from any Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 device
	• Login via Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, or Google accounts - your choice!
	• Freedom from being forced to use Google (e.g. feedly)
	• Article state is synced - articles marked as "read" on one device will be marked as such on your other devices
	• Favorite your articles, then view them from any Weave client

Visual Changes
	
	• New streamlined Panoramic homescreen layout.
	• New article list layout: "Cards".  Brings a beautiful new way to browse the news. 
	• All the old layouts are still available as well, bringing the total 4 different article list layouts

    So tired of this not working. Happens every other month. Can't happen for this kind of app. Some of us have professional jobs.

    Update 12-8-14: The app for the last 2 days has not been able to show new articles. Overall, very dissatisfied with the lack of support from the devs, as well as the lack of functional promised features. Especially for how expensive this app is. 5-29-13: While this is my favorite RSS feed reader, I bought the paid version to support the devs and when it advertised "videos formatted to be compatible with Windows Phone within the app". I'd say 20% of the videos are encoded for the app and about 80% of the articles are able to view within the app. With these quirks, it is still the best RSS feed around on any mobile OS.

    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

    Articles fail to load. This is inexcusable for an app this expensive.
  • by Jason 11/23/2014
    Use this for hours every day. A few bugs but overall a strong capable product. Worth the money but I hope to see continued development.

    Post update the live tile still doesn't function properly, still doesn't load all new articles. Might be time to find a different news reader.

    Stopped working for me. Sad because this was my daily driver for news. Constantly crashes now.
