Weave updated to v3.5 adds YouTube, mp4, and podcast support


When will they update Game News Now?Yeah, I know Weave games section is the same but I like GNN interface.

Maybe I am just not getting it, but I don't see the YouTube support. I just went to a few articles that I know have videos embedded in them, and I see no way to watch them on Weave.

You don't watch them in Weave (not possible), what it means is that YouTube support is now included. Specifically, if you come to an article with an YouTube video, it will recognize that there is a video and allow you to launch the official YouTube app to watch it--it actually works very well.Before, if it had a video, it wouldn't even recognize that it was there.

I didn't get the update...I don't think...I HOPE the fixed the bug where articles in the "Featured" section don't go away when you click into them. This issue only is an issue because the "Mark as Read" icon is removed when you activate "Mark an article as 'read' as soon as I tap on it."Also...why is there a free version and a paid version with a trial...for every version of their apps there are two entries. I can't believe that is even legit.
