Popular Windows Phone news reader app Weave to shut down on March 14

After five years the popular news reading app Weave will close down on March 14. Without providing a reason as to why the company is closing down the popular app for Windows Phone, Seles Games published a handful of tweets to thank consumers and Microsoft (as well as ourselves) for all the support the team received since 2010.

Weave Closing

It's always rather sad for us here at Windows Central to lose an app we've essentially grown up with. Weave was a solid news reading app that many have enjoyed as Microsoft evolved its mobile platform and it'll surely be missed. That said, there are a few alternatives one can use in its absence, including the likes of Fuse.

Weave

If you'd like to sit through some history, take a look at our Weave review from December 2010. Do you use Weave on a daily basis? If so, which alternative will you look at once the service ceases to exist?

  • Meh again!
    Apps getting pulled from the store over and over, every two or three days an app is discontinued, or getting pulled from the store this is getting annoying!.
  • I think MS needs to release some stats showing app added/day as well as apps removed/day
  • And should show quality apps not only quantity.
  • I never feel happy whenever I see something like "Windows Phone now has XXXXXX apps", but things like these hurts.
  • Yes its sad day for Wave News reader and Sales Games. However try out Central News Plus+ by Freeman Technologies just for $0.79 as a replacement. I hope it suits of your daily needs.
  • That wont be nice numbers. I rather not see it.
  • True fan should know the real number however bitter it is
  • I'm not a true fan sadly.
  • I don't see publishing stats as a bad thing. If anything, it would cut down these "doom and gloom" trolls that try to convince people Windows Phone is dead in the water when our thousands of new apps come with the loss of two low rating bank apps.
  • I imagine that many Android apps are also abandoned or removed because the developer decided it wasn't worth the time or trouble or profitability was illusive. The difference is that Android websites don't typically list and run articles on each of those pulled apps on a regular basis like WC does. As many know, even many of the popular apps and companies that have a high market valuation often don't show a profit. Many cannot continue on with the hope of future profitability indefinitely. The Chase app, well that's a different story. That pull was something to be concerned about.
  • Yeah android sites tend to look at things more positively, they always have. People enjoy supporting the platform ...when one app goes, that provides the opportunity for a number of other apps. Next Gen Reader, Fuse, Fedora...
  • Paul, yes that true, for us its about giving quality to Windows Platform.
  • We have appfeds.com for that.
  • Shit happens. We've got alternatives.
  • Microsoft fan boy Rubino must be crying 
  • @ aspdev what is the point behind that comment. Most here on this site are fans of the platform. So bored you have to troll
  • its another nail in WP Coffin :P 
  • No, its you scoring points like a 5 year old child in a playground. 
    Go play favourites somewhere else.
  • The 5 year olds don't remember that once Nokia and Blackberry were where Android is now. Microsoft are diverse and will survive, they even make more money from Android than Google do. So let the Android children have their fun, it will be tears soon enough. Samsung will soon have their own OS and where will the Android children be then?
  • I thought "meh" was supposed to show indifference, not excitement.
  • I thought "meh" is not a word and it only shows an expression that I'm feeling bored and not excited about something happening.
  • This is different than a Chase pulling their app.  This appears to be a one man shop and his company is ceasing operations.  See the LinkedIn profile... https://www.linkedin.com/company/seles-games.  The linked website doesn't even exist.  If you used Weave, this may be disappointing.  Also, it is disappointing that he couldn't grow his company and be profitable invested in Windows.  Well, maybe he was profitable, we don't know the reason why he is shutting down Weave.  Will all that said, there is NextGen Reader that is excellent (and other alternatives) and making the switch is not as painful as switching banks.
  • Paid for Weave in the early days of WP7. Switched to NextGen several months ago after waiting for Weave to offer synching across devices. NextGen figured this out and understands the cross-platform utility offered by the windows ecosystem.
  • I agree with this assertion. I think the constant changes to so many news sites just caught up to Weave.  I personally used it daily for my WP news since 2010.  I stopped using it a month ago when it crashed and would no longer open on my L920...but before then maybe all but one of the news feeds either opened poorly (as WPCentral's feed needed a bunch of time to load) or the feeds required you to click a link and open in IE.  It just wasn't handy anymore.
  • Audible just came out yesterday ...it has 98 comments. This app is shutting down and it already has 222 comments. Negative news always gets more interest than positive.
  • An excellent observation
  • Hello, Unfortinate for Seales Games on Wave News Reader. Come and replace your Wave News Reader app to Central News Plus+ which is a better alternative app as your daily news reader and we have plans for Windows 10 for a big update on Central News Plus+ :) Try it out on the store. Search Central News Plus+ and download it for $0.79.
  • Why are so many applications leaving the Windows platform?
    Any particular issue?
  • This is a free app that seems to run on advertisements. Maybe the advertisements can't sustain them. Maybe someone quit or they had to make budget cuts. As far as I know this is a Windows only app so there isn't an IOS or Android one that will continue running. There is very little apps discontinuing support if you think about it. You just see a news post once in a while. Some are simply prepping for windows 10 which likely might be better to dedicate all resources to rather than support old one simultaneously. MS is not going away. They went from nothing to defeating Nintendo and battling the Sony giant in video game consoles. When they want into a market they will get in. They sometimes require a few tries. It's about swaying OEMs. And most OEMs will likely wait for windows 10. Why launch now and have the hassle of upgrades?
  • If I could like this, I would
  • I've said it before, but many people was angry when I did...
    The reason why apps are pulled is that Windows as an mobile OS is dying...
    It doesn't help that MS and a bunch of people is satisfied, when the market doesn't believe in our OS.
    The manufacturers doesn't want to produce phones with WP, and companies isn't interested in yet another OS...
    So...here we are. Soon WP and W10 will be for people with special interest, but it will never manage to grow further...
  • According to today's update, you're wrong.  This had nothing to do with a "dying" OS, but rather the developer got a job. 
  • Yes, so I read today. This story was a little different, and that's a relief. But anyway, I really don't like that companies is abandoning WP one by one. We have lot of examples of this lately.
    I think that W10 on phone is either win or lose! If MS don't succeed this time, they never will!
  • "Some are simply prepping for windows 10" Has that been confirmed anywhere, by anyone? I hear people saying this on every "this app just got pulled" article as an explanation why, but that doesn't make much sense to me. What happens to 8.1 apps when Windows 10 comes out? Are they all automatically broken? Will they all automatically work? Isn't porting from 8.1 to 10 easy as pie? If so, why would you kill your app months before Windows 10 comes out--thereby alienating your fan base--just because you were releasing a Windows 10 app. None of that makes any sense to me. Anyway, I used Weave daily, so this is a downer.
  • It doesn't need to be confirmed, I'm sure it's the case for some people. Whether it is here is unknown, I do find it odd they'd just shut it down. It doesn't cost them anything to keep it in the store - and could bring them in some ad revenue. So it seems to me more likely they have a replacement app coming, or alternatively they've gotten a new job (hopefully as a WP app developer somewhere else) and had to close down their existing works for contractual reasons.
  • Windows 10 will save the world! /s
  • It is very much alive on Android just from what I see being pulled from Windows Phone
  • I have an Android phone and can't find it. Not on my tablet or the web. Are you sure? It has always been known as an exclusive to Windows.
  • There was a lawsuit based on weave brand.
  • I think the reason weave is shutting down maybe they couldn't afford paying for the azure web service.
  • there are couple of reasons 1. user base is very small so they cant survive with ads revenue 2. poor API support from msft makes very difficult to write good quality app
  • Your speculations seem to be wrong, in this instance.
  • Because you touch yourself at night. :(
  • Because no one buys windows phone and there is nothing here that anyone is willing to leave iOS or Android. Those ecosystems offer much more than just the pretty tiles. Posted via the Windows Central App
  • I've heard many firsthand accounts on here and YouTube that people like the UI navigation better than iOS or Android. Personally it is way better than iOS.
  • iOS it's nothing but a toy and doesn't play well in an enterprise setting. Android is an insecure OS that any administrator worth their salt wouldn't allow anywhere near their network. And Android being Google should be reason enough to start clear of it. I have yet to find anything on iOS our Android that can't be done with WP and the things that they all do WP does much easier and many times, natively. I'll take my two year old WP and put it against a brand new iPhone or Android any day. It will run better, smoother and longer.
  • Why is everyone dropping the support for Windows Phone? December was a great month and I had big expectations for this year :(
  • well just ask it to Microsoft, why did they cancel McLaren device and 1530 that was ought to come in Nov !4.  Microsoft Mobile (Nokia) was the Samsung of the Android and they just slow down the manufacturing. Why would anyone release a high spec Windows Phone, if the major player did not step up?
  • McLaren was never official, it was something they were trying and it didn't make it to production line. Microsoft has a very specific strategy right now and it's a long game that is targeted more at a worldwide audience than just US. Love it or hate it the US is a primarily premium offering space and right now it's uphill battle with lead weights taking on incumbents. They're betting big on building ground swell worldwide with entry level\emerging markets offerings.
  • That makes sense, the mid range to low range are now covered, especially with the 640/XL. But somehow the midrange to flagship is lacking. I'm hoping with W10 this will be addressed.
  • The Lumia 830 fits that tier and is a great phone.
  • Whether or not it was official, there is still a vacuum where the McLaren was rumored to launch. Whether or not you like it, US market share brings the big apps. Americans can, and do, spend more on apps and in-app purchases. The fact that there has been no major release in the US since the Icon has allowed all momentum there to die. Sure, it might be wise now to wait until Windows 10 to launch to release a flagship, but that is no excuse for six months ago.
  • This is very true. It's a sign of the turmoil at MS as they pivot from Balmer's disastrous time into Nadella's mobile-based future. That said, leaving WP without a to notch new phone for 2 years has been yet another blunder. It's allowed both Apple and Samsung to almost catch up in camera capability, which used to be Nokia's shining glory. Sure, EVENTUALLY MS will retreat a kick azz Win 10 phone but the weeds are growing around WP pretty fast.
  • Only "premium"matters, as Apple has shown. It isn't the total number of phones that matters, it's the total finances of the phone buyers that matters. Apple users, even though they are a minority, have much more to spend (and do spend much more) than Android users. Thus, Apple thrives and Windows Phone dies. The high end is three only market that matters. If MS' strategy is to focus on the low end (and it seems to be) they are as good as dead. Indeed, they /are/ dead already
  • If what you're saying held water then Android wouldn't own the majority install base worldwide on mobile. It's a numbers game. Apple has always stayed in the premium game, they have no reason to dilute the brand, people are paying the cool tax so why let them off hook? Their "budget" play is just n-2 iPhone on discount, and people still buying. Android went other direction and attacked the entry level\ budget market and their market share exploded. Granted now they're in a fragmented state, fact is Android is m more distributed than Apple at this point. This is why Microsoft is having a tough time because they have to find a crack in the market to penetrate and grow (yes chuckle,I did). Frankly it's easier to fight the low end battle and go up.
  • Microsoft said, they won't launch any high configuration device before Windows ten has released.
  • Shut up. Enough of these "Where is a new flagship" things already. Keep whining, Microsoft will release a new 940 tomorrow.
  • I have 920, and looking forward to buy a high end phone with Snapdragon 810 processor on it. I can't find it.  On the Android Side, they have 810 processors powered by, HTC M9, Xiaomi mi note pro, LG G4, XPERIA Z4. Some of these devices will be announced later on.  What I am trying to say is that we need high-end WindowsPhone, and Microsoft with the highest market share of WindowsPhone Devices, should have done it months ago. Yet, we still don't know when Flagship device will be announced. Yes, it will be announced after the release of Windows10 for Phones. But does anybody know when they are gonna release Windows10 for Phones?
  • Agree. You don't want to ignore the high end, Samsung certainly don't❗❗
  • I think Weave as a whole is shutting down, because they were a Windows exclusive, so it's not like other companies which will keep up support for their Android and iOS ports.
  • Except for tens of thousands of apps that aren't dropping support.
  • Freeman Technologies is one of tens of thousands of apps that aren't planning for drop support of Windows Platform. We are prepping for the biggest app project of our News app for Windows 10. Central News Plus+
  • refund?
  • You can have it. Just contact Microsoft using the chat on their website and they'll refund you.
  • I don't think so. Refund has a time limit of 24 hours for the app you purchased
  • Nope. Not on WP.
  • Nope, When I moved to WP8, some apps I picked up when I first got a WP7 device didn't work, they gave me a refund and the app at the time was $1.99, When I got it, it was $4.99, they refunded me $4.99
  • Yes, if you contact Support they WILL issue a refund.
  • They are giving refunds, I am getting one processed.
  • "and another one gone another one bites the dust"
  • Use Weave daily. Is there a reason? Do they have Android or ios apps still running?
  • Weave was Windows-exclusive
  • Thank goodness for that. To be honest, it is a shame to see any app ho. But at least there are alternative options.
  • Why they have to ho like that?
  • Yeah, why? Ha ha... Damn portrait typing!
  • Lol!
  • Want an Alternative? Try Central News Plus+ from Freeman Technologies only $0.79 I hope it works for you :)
  • My god man, you're all over this! I will have a look.
  • Thanks @peachy001 I hope you will like the app. :) Sorry for the notification buzz. I am excited for the response on the app. Please do check out the app. Dont forget to rate and PM Freeman for feedback of the app. :)
  • No trial?
  • @peachy001 Hi, Yes, the "Free" version of Central News Plus+, you can get is Central News, free standard edition with limited features, you can try out the free version now, search Central News by Freeman Technologies and then dont foget to rate the app and PM Freeman on your thoughts about the app. :)  Thanks for the support @peachy001 From Freeman Technologies
  • Use it daily as well, read nearly all news through it.
  • And we thought flappy bird's dev lost his mind walking away from decent marketshare lol
  • I think they couldn't afford azure website management through their app revenue.
  • At this rate after a couple of thousand years there will be no apps left at all.
  • MS run android apps or Die!!!!!
  • BB says hi.
  • @theefman Lol! Have u been stalking me?
  • Can BB run any Android app?  I might be considering a BB... 
  • lol
  • it sucked long time ago, since 7.8 days
  • This.
  • It didn't, don't be a sore loser.
  • it did. you must be working for weave, i guess? i dunno. lol
    srsly, it was awful after WP8 was introduced. this ws also my first before i switched to nextgen. :)
  • I used it once, it's indeed kinda sad to see it's gone but I felt Weave wasn't particularly good RSS reader, there's something missing, bye Weave
  • It was good enough for Windows Phone 7 but it never grew up to suit WP8 sadly. The development wasn't fast enough. But I loved the fact that it stayed WP exclusive throughout its life time. Exclusive to WP isn't something we see here anymore, not even from Microsoft.
  • A very good point you have especially the part about not even Microsoft lol, yeah I'd like to see some app that's Windows exclusive
  • You people have to start realising that no dev that wants to make it can afford to stick to one platform only. Exclusives are a thing of the past.
  • Yeah it's just reality and it's actually fine, as long as you can keep it up just like other platform and not leave WP user with old ones
  • Exclusive apps are not the thing of the past, they are a market that some developers succesfully tap into and become sucessful and thats what Freeman Technologies want to do. Which we are trying to do and bring quality apps to the Windows Platform exclusively :)
  • On wp7 it was the best, on wp8 it went downhill servers offline almost every weekend, on every update something went bad and never got fixed. But even after all those bad things I still use it everyday.
  • So lame. Weave was in the top 5 apps I recomend to new users... I use it super frequantly. 
  • Sorry to hear that, at least there is an alternative Central News Plus+ :) Try it out and love get it. Search on the store Central News Plus+ by "Freeman Technologies" and tap install and enjoy the news experince. :)
  • I can't believe I'm saying this... An iPhone 6s might be in my future.
  • Wait for iPhone 7 its going to be epic and will be able to even fly!
  • I'm tired of waiting. Been doing that since my HD7. I'm on T-Mobile. I can jump in the fall. MS better come up with a winner before then...
  • I could understand the move to ios if a mission critical app went, but an rss reader (albeit one I use) is not enough to move me. Gonna try that Fuze later.
  • Fuse is crap.
  • Try Central News Plus+ and let me know about the app experince and if you want improvements of the app. PM me stright away and I will reply back and improve the app
  • I don't use Weave, and I don't really care about it specifically.  This is indicative of a larger trend.  What little momentmum Windows Phone had seems to be eroding.  Look, I'm one of the faithful.  I have paid subscriptions to Xbox Live, Xbox Music, and Skype.  I preordered the Xbox One and the Surface RT (which I still use daily).  My first smart phone was a T-Mobile (HTC) Wing.  From there Touch Pro 2, HD7, Lumia 810, and my current M8.  Losing Chase was a big blow.  (I already have an Ally account, so I know about them.)  I've stuck with WP while waiting for the trickle of apps an OS updates.  I'm getting tired of waiting.  Now that key MS services are available on ios, it's becomming more plausable for me. Like I said, I'm one of the faithful, but MS better disrupt and change the landscape soon, or they will lose what little marketshare they have left.
  • Its up to developers not MS. Some developers are staying within Microsoft platform and Freeman Technologies is one of them. There is a better alternative to Wave News, you can try Central News Plus+ on the store now, just type in the store under Freeman Technologies and there you have it and download and enjoy :)
  • Go get your "future" then
  • This!!!!Thats what I am talking about.... If you wanna leave to get an iPhone...or Android... Please do so.... But no one here really cares...
  • U got b8ed m8
  • I said the same thing about the iPhone 6 but love my 1520 too much to let her go.
  • The irony of my statement, is that I think the iphone 6 is the ugliest of all iphones.  I don't like the curved edges, and I hate the lines on the back.
  • Weave isn't on iPhone so your logic makes no sense.
  • My logic is sound.  See above. My preference would be for MS to knock it out of the park with Windows 10.  Sadly, I'm not optimistic.
  • No, it's still not sound. You're jumping to conclusions. Weave closing shop is not necessarily "indicative of larger trends". It could be for any of numerous reasons that have nothing to do with Windows Phone.
  • I'm not going to argue against Windows Phone.  Like I've said above, I've been a believer from the start, but I'm now having doubts.  I couldn't care less about Weave.  Never used it.  I do use the MSN News app daily. No new flagships.  Exclusives (that are never on T-Mobile, or at least the good ones).  Apps that are pulled.  App that are never updated.  Apps that don't for WP.  MS developing for other platforms.  This seems indicative to me, but maybe not for you. Talk me off of the ledge, please!!!
  • Sorry most people disagree, many developers like Freeman Technologies are sticking to the platform. This is just a small number, and our app is still live and bean steadly sucessful since it was in the market. :) Central News Plus+
  • To be honest, I coped without a banking app for years, just used a PC. But once I got it, man it saved me so much time. If my bank pulled it then I would be really annoyed. I just can't face going the Apple route. If nothing else, I can't buy in to the fact that iphone users seem incapable of saying the word "phone". They never say "my phone" it always has to be "my iPhone". Sorry... It is my greatest pet hate with the damn things.
  • ok. byeeeee! no one's gonna stop you. your money, your choice. :)
  • Um... thank you?
  • Dude then you could totally snapchatz wit da teen girls!
  • Or have an app for any number of banks that don't support WP. The blind fanboyism is getting old.
  • So is the constant doom and gloom
  • I agree to an extent. But at least that's rooted in empirical evidence, unlike the rainbows and lollipops of "Windows 10 will fix everything."
  • I don't find all of the doom and gloom to be based in anything but speculation.  This app, for example, is being pulled because the one-man operation got a job and won't have time to keep up with this, not because of "market share". The doomers take any bit of negative information and extrapolate into false causality links until they get to "the OS is dead".   I think the rainbows (won't call it lollipop around here. ha ha) are a natural defense against all of the negativity.
  • Not much good news coming out of Redmond feel sorry for the bloggers, nothing good to blog.... Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for Android
  • Weave isn't in Redmond.
  • Microsoft is in Redmond.
  • In general or just for WP?
    If just for windowsphone then we don't need an explanation as we already know the reason . The same reason other apps gave left.
    Poll: How many more apps will we lose in 2015?
    Forget about this win10 deal devs seem like they could care less about windows 1,000,000 .
    Almost impossible to recommend WP unless you hate apps or only like one or two with the chance of it closing down
  • Only WP. Because its exclusive to WP.
  • Its a few and some are getting ready for republish for Windows 10 and some are already getting in development for big projects for Windows 10 like Freeman Technologies. We have an alternative for you to try. Go to the store and download "Central News Plus+" by Freeman Technologies, love it PM me of what you experince and if you want improvements PM me and I will get back to you sharply :)
  • Newser is no doubt the best news app on WP. I would be supah butt hurt if they discontinued it.
  • Appy geek N01.
  • I used to get annoyed about such news, but hey, If MS doesn't show some major support and really invest in their own phone OS/Hardware, why would anyone else? At least these guys tried.
  • Exactly
  • So every single app made on windows should be a never ending success? Wish I could be as high as you right now.
  • Microsoft is showing major support to developers like Freeman Technologies, in apps and our apps has been steadly sucessful, try an alternative Central News Plus+, you will love it :)
  • They were having legal troubles sometime ago, right? I wonder if this is related.
    http://m.windowscentral.com/weave-news-reader-receives-copyright-claim
  • I wish the author would do a little research. This may not be the exact cause of the company shutting down (not just the app), but it is something worth mentioning.
  • I hope devs won't shut down the WindowsCentral
  • Well we dont even have a mobile nations wp app
  • I remember a new one was coming... Do we have to wait for Windows 10 too?
  • Win10 will fix everything
  • Chase (Bank app) is next...
  • Geekbyte and wcentral. Only two best choices out there.
  • WTF is weave, I've had WP since day one and never used or heard of this, no sad loss.
  • Cool story, bro.
  • Angry :( Try Central News Plus+ an alternative to Weave News reader :) Enjoy by Freeman Technologies. PM me of what you think about the app and improvements to the app.
  • Noooo. This is my #1 news reader. F**k!
  • +1 great app. Been using it since WP7. I had Fuse and Nextgen for a while, but they sucked. Now back to the store, which will illustrate the pathetic collection of what's left to choose from.
  • Try dailyaha.
  • If you want good live tile options, try News To-Go if you are in the US or UK.
  • Try nextgen or fedora.
  • @TonyRAnderson also try Central News Plus+, its another great news reader.
  • If you want a good news reader, try Central News Plus+ by Freeman Technologies, download it only for $0.79, its worth it, PM me if you love and dont forget to rate the app. and tell me the improvements needed for the apps so we can improve the app.
  • Sorry about that try this alternative news reader just for $0.79. Its good and functional and I think you will like it.  Please if you installed the app, dont forget to rate the app and feedback by PM Freeman Technologies on the feedback and what ideas and suggestions that is needed for improvements of our app. Thank you @jlzimmerman  :) Ben. A Freeman Technologies
  • If you're looking for something else, I recommend Nextgen. Weave's live tile hadn't worked for me for a long time anyway.
  • I use Nextgen too and it's a versatile app! It's Windows exclusive too but I'm kinda afraid what's happening with Weave gonna happen to Nextgen too..
  • I think Weave was a bit of a special case. And Nextgen seems to update their app quite often so I'm not too worried.
  • Also Willied and SpideyManiac those are good alternatives, I have another good alternative, I recommend you all to getting Central News Plus+ from Freeman Technologies only for $0.79 as an replacement to Wave News Reader. You will love it :)
  • Its obvious that the reason a bunch of apps are shutting down. ) its because of w10 universal apps ( its cost effective to shut down the current app and a universal app than have 2 apps running side by side... Or 3 in some cases. Remember the apps that worked on 8 but not 7 ? I think we're going to see that again, but lucky everyone one on 8 can upgrade to windows phone 9... Er 10 Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Are you just speculating or do you have a source for those claims?
  • Developers never took a liking to writing apps for Windows 8 and they won't for Windows 10 either.  I've begged SplashID to get their password manager program working for Windows 8 for over a year now and they have refused.  They do keep releasing new ios and android apps though.
  • does that mean the developers don't care about market share? I doubt there is anything with HigherMarket share as windows.
  • What makes it so different than legacy programs? I thought they shared like 95% of the code.
  • Not true, because we can get our legacy app without restructing the app of Windows 10 to the Windows 10 platform. Most developers like Freeman Technologies around Windows Platform continues to support and update Windows apps. I suggest trying one of our launch apps Central News Plus+. Rate it on the store, its only for $0.79.
  • Not obvious at all....
  • Six months out from 10.It would be kinda stupid to be pulling apps now.Low market share and small user base is the reason alot of devs are pulling out.
  • Basically, this.  
  • Not true at all, most developers and Freeman Technologies are already working on projects for Windows 10 and continue to support Windows Platform and we launched are app back in January Central News Plus+ and we planning to release our big app update this Q3 around the time Windows 10 lauches. I recommend you getting Central News Plus+ only for $0.79. Rate it, love it and PM me for feedback on app and improvements needed.
  • Qnap music beta is coming to WP, good!
    Some go and some come...
  • What is qnap?
  • I use this every day. Sadly, it hasn't been updated in a LONG time and has always been a bit buggy. With Cortana keeping up with news for me it won't be a great loss. But I'm still sad to see it go. Maybe if they had kept the app up to date it might have been more successful.
  • Sorry about that @Forjo Atinxan recommend you an Weave news alternative, Central News Plus+  is a universal app just for $0.79 its avaliable on the store now. Rate it on the app store and love it and PM Freeman Technologies for app feedback and improvements needed for the app. Thank you :)
  • Try converge or new republic are very good
    and updated often
  • Converge is so amazingly built.
  • Is converge a universal app yet? I always found it to be looking very nice.
  • Max-ecs, Tony RAnderson and Radde, yes nice alternative there, hence, I also recommend you all to Central News Plus+ and speaking of universal apps, is a universal app just for $0.79 its avaliable on the store now.

  • I also recommend you trying Central News Plus+, if you havent heard of it, its great just for $0.79, its a universal app. Its a good replacement of Weave reader :)
  • :-( Weave was the first app I ever purchased on my WP7 Samsung Focus. Ah the memories.

Its good and functional and I think you will like it.  Please if you installed the app, dont forget to rate the app and feedback by PM Freeman Technologies on the feedback and what ideas and suggestions that is needed for improvements of our app. Thank you @dcutting   Ben.

  • Honestly tho this app has been bad for a while. Had it on WP 7 but nextgen reader is so much better
  • Nextgen kills Weave. Was looking for and ios equivalent for my wifes ipad and I have to say it's better than any Feedly app I could find on iOS as well.
  • Was this the only news app or something that people are this upset about it? We have android, IOS and windows phone in our house and we all seem to be able to do what we want on our phones.
  • Nah there's a bunch. People here are just the biggest complainers you'll ever meet.
  • It wasn't even that good tbh...
  • Can you point me to an alternative? I tried about a dozen other news reader apps and all failed; only weave managed to stay on my phone and PC since it offered the easiest way to aggregate news to my devices without needing to know the RSS feeds addresses.
  • Not happy about the app? We got an alternative, try Central News Plus+ just of $0.79 by Freeman Technologies, exclusive to Windows, dont forget to rate the app. :) I hope you like it and PM Freeman Technologies on the app feedback and the improvements needed to improve the app.
  • Sad news but I switched to dailyaha whic actually syncs across devices via OneDrive automatically.
  • Oooou man I used to use it
  • What, what, what???
  • it was such a good app i had downloaded it once i uswd only for 2 months. it was a great app. there was no difference between weave and flipboard except the flipping feature which windows phone doesn't even have.
  • Sorry about that, Aashish13 Central News Plus+ will support for as long the platform is present. We got an alternative. Go and try Central News Plus+ only for $0.79 on the store by Freeman Technologies and PM Freeman Technologies if you love the app and improvements needed and dont forget to rate the app on the app store.
  • Simple question. Is there some time limit on nextgen reader trial version? I didn't see anything in the app description in the store.
  • Soon.. Microsoft to shut down its services for windows phone?! :P
  • They'll shut down Bing before they shut down their mobile devision. Way too much invested.
  • This was one of the first apps I downloaded on Windows phone back in the days when I had an HTC Mozart (WP7) and I have used it ever since! Really sad it is going although probably non unexpected as the app has been suffering a lot of issues for over 12 months now! There is no mention of the Windows 8.1 app on my SP3 but I assume this will go too...! Let's hope they can return under a universal app and Windows 10, it was a great app and great user experience.
  • I'm wondering why Microsoft doesn't carry on their, and other big conglomerates, trend of just buying the rights to this app and keep it going if it's such an institution, I've never used it myself but I have heard of it and it sounds like its a WP favorite, buy it, support it and make your users happy.... Plus it may go cheap since they are shutting down anyways, also lets hope the shut down is because of a Windows 10 Universal App and they surprise us later this year!!!! Well we can only hope....
  • Why would they buy an RSS reader when they have one? News.
  • HELL YEAH! NO MATTER HOW YOU SHUT DOWN YOUR APPS, MICROSOFT WILL MAKE THIS KIND OF APPS ANY MOMENT. :3
  • Obviously it's not that popular.
  • I found something very important,
    I tried to Windows central they didn't response.
    So,when I dial ##777#, they said SPECIAL PHONE RESET.
    What does it mean?
    Hard reset or soft reset or other reset?
  • I don't know, but this seems like a perfect place for your question.
  • Pretty sure that's a hard reset.
  • It's sad but Windows Phone is dying before it got a chance to show the world how unique and good it is.
  • LOL
  • Microsoft had 4+ years to show it and failed, not sure how much more of a chance is needed.....
  • It hasn't failed, there just isn't enough space for more than two big players, just like the desktop market. Would you say Linux has "failed"?
  • YES, in desktop market linux failed
  • WP is not dying, its alive and its alive with this altenative news app you can try out and love it continue to support it and we continue to support the app infininately. Central News Plus+ is just for $0.79 universal app, go and get it now and rate it on the store and PM Freeman Technologies on how the app experince went and how can we improve the app exeprince. :) I hope you will enjoy it.
  • This sucks! :'(
  • @Dwayne55 Sorry about that, there is a good alternative, go and get Central News Plus+ is just for $0.79 universal app, go and get it now and rate it on the store and PM Freeman Technologies on how the app experince went and how can we improve the app exeprince. :) I hope you will enjoy it. Its a great news reader that I recommend to you and all at Windows Central :)
  • I'm sorry for Weave. It was my first reader app on WP platform. I would like to know the reason of shutting down.
    I'm using Phonly now. Feedly is supported.
  • Its sad, however there are tons of alternative, just as you mentioned earlier and also you can try out an alternative app Central News Plus+ just for $0.79 universal app, its just news on the go, its a good news reader. Go and rate it. PM Freeman Technologies if you love it and what improvements needed for the app. I will respond and make changes to the app for further improvements. We continue to support the platform and the app on the store with many updates to the app.
  • Why doesn't MS just buy and maintain these apps the developers want to discontinue, especially if they're successful/popular/fill a need. I'd think they could get them fairly reasonably and the cost would be peanuts for MS.
  • Sad to see weave leave, it was a great app.
  • I guess these apps realized that after 3 to 4 years nothing happens to wp
  • It fails because it is way over priced. When I first looked for RRS reader, first app I tried is this one. However when I looked at its price when I finish trial, i was shocked. So I turned to NextGen Reader and find it is way better.
  • Sad. I use Weave everyday. WTF is going on? What's the best newsreader for us right now?
  • @MaulerX I recommend you the one of the best news reader for Windows Platform, Central News Plus+ a universal app just for $0.79. Its seamless and UI/UX is intiuitive and beautiful and I recommend you getting it. Please rate it once you have the app. Please also dont forget to PM Freeman for the feedback of your app experince and improvements requests.   Thank you   Freeman Technologies
  • Nextgen Reader, Fedora, Phonly, Converge
  • I've used Weave for a long time and it has served it me well. It bothers me that the people behind the app think its cool to just shut it down with relatively little notice. I thought they were a stable company, well managed company, so something dramatic must have happened to make a drastic move like this. I will certainly think twice before spending any money with them in the future wherever they end up.
  • Freeman Technologies will continue to support the platform and our small organisation is built upon bringing apps and games to the Windows platform exclusively, bringing something that has not been available before, in a unique innovative way. Freeman Technologies believes in the platform and I believe also most developers on Windows do. There is an alternative you can use, Central News Plus+ only for $0.79. Its a good alternative reader of Weave News reader with a lot of features. I hope you enjoy our first app. Please rate the app and also PM Freeman Technologies on the app experince feedback and on what the app can improve so Freeman Technologies can continue to evolve the Central News Plus+ app. :)
  • Bye bye....one more useless app....don't come back.....
  • Yes, because losing developer support on a platform that is already struggling is a GOOD thing.
  • Winner of most worthless comment of the day.
  • It doesn't help that it was ten USD. That's a game on Steam..
  • Weave was a great app in the beggining and I couldn't imagine using a wp phone without it. But as time went by it became buggier, and lacked a lot of features that competition had.
    Eventually I replaced it with nextgen and feedsea.
  • Want to try an alternative, Try our affordable Central News Plus+ app. Its a good alternative to Weave News Reader. Just for $0.79 on the store. Dont forget to rate it and PM Freeman Technologies on the app feedback and what needs to improve on the app, we want to continue to evolve the app to make the best news reader available for Windows platform. :)
  • I hate to see that it's gone, but it had issues for a while a few months back. I switches to some other apps & never went back. When it worked for me...it was the best though.
  • Yea weave was my first news reader app but eventually I switched to nextgen reader.  It's tough to compete sometimes!
  • Sorry to hear that @lewminous there are plenty of news reader you can switch to, Central News Plus+ just for $0.79 same price across countries. Its a universal news app sync across all devices, its a good reader which I really recommend you getting. Once installed please dont forget to rate the app and PM Freeman for feedback. Thank you   Freeman Technologies. :)
  • Duh Duh Duh...another one bites the dust!
  • It was my very first RSS reader on WP.. But honestly but after a update or so it went from good to worse.. And then i switched to Nextgen reader which is way better than weave could have been. Feeling bad that this app is shutting down.. Hope it would come back on Windows 10..
  • Hi @thenightfury we are Freeman Technologies, I am sorry about the experince you had with Weave, We have an alternative for Weave, go and try Central News Plus+ just for $0.79 on the store now. Love it please rate it and share your thoughts on the app. Please PM Freeman Technologies for feedback, help and what improvments needed for the app. Thanks :)
  • That's awesome,asshole reader
  • Well at least it was cheap. Oh wait...
  • Nooooo this is my all in one best news reader so far.
  • Tried(when it was free) it didn't like the ui, moved to magnify and basically gave up using them when a few tech sites made their own apps I didn't bother to reconfigure after my last reset to defaults as it wasn't as necessary
  • Does this mean that Windows Phone News is going to do working too, since its backbone is Weave ?
  • Aw that sucks, use weave daily...
  • Sorry about TechFreak1,  want to use an alternative? Go to the store and try out Central News Plus+ is a universal apps works across all your windows devices and its only on the store just for less than $0.99 on the store, its a great alternative. I really recommend it to you to try. If you got it, please rate it and we would like your PM feedback on the app experince, on what improvements needed to improve the app so it can be the best news app experince only on a Windows platform :)
  • In the words of the immortal Freddy Mercury, another one bites the dust.
  • Apps come and go. While it is sad to see one go, others take its place. WP, and even Windows 8, is not lacking in RSS feed/news apps. Nextgen, Feedsea, Fedora Reader, Newsspot, Phonly, Fuse, Flipboard, and numerous others are available in the store. Many of them are better supported and less buggy than Weave was in recent times. Support a developer and go download one of them to try.
  • So sorry about that IndyJG. I hope Central News Plus+ is an alternative, its less buggy and You can just give a try for just $0.79. Please rate the app if you have the app and also PM Freeman Technologies for feedback and what improvments needed for the app to get to better. We are continuing to support our Windows apps and we are preparing more apps to come and big projects for the future around Windows 10. :)
  • What does close down mean exactly? Will the app still pull data from feeds or just not work at all?
  • I assume if your using a feed provider that say requires google account it wont but its rss/xml functions id assume should still work
  • This was the first news reader I used way back when I had my HTC Trophy. Ultimately I decided to try Nextgen Reader about a year back when they added support for using your Microsoft account and ended up sticking with that. Weave was nice, and it was great when they made it universal. Even though I don't use it anymore thanks to those guys for supporting the platform for so long!
  • Sorry about that @Camaroon, want to try an alternative to Wave News Reader? Please try our Central News Plus+ just for $0.79 on the store. Love it please rate it and share your thoughts on the app. Plus+, dont foget to PM Freeman Technologies to share your feedback to us and how we can improve the app experince better so we can evolve the Central News Plus+ app and make it even better to create the best news reader app available on the Windows Store platform.
  • "and the world is spinning round"
  • I couldn't care less. Once Weave upped its price from $1.99 to $9.99 I quit recommending it.
  • When I first moved to WP Weave was my news reader app.  I wanted to pay to support them but charing $10 for a news reader is a bit steep I think. As time went on and apps like Next Gen Reader and Flipboard came on, Weave was passed by.  Kinda sad to see it go but that's how it goes, not just with WP
  • Hi, Freeman Technologies Dont be too sad Josh. There are plenty of alternatives news readers out there. Theres one you can try out of the crowd. Central News Plus+ a unique social news reader just for $0.79. I hope it works for you. Dont forget to rate the app after installation and please PM Freeman Technologies on the app experince, what improvements needed to make the app even better for you and others :) We continue to support our Windows apps and Windows platform as a whole. Thanks.
  • We do need an Universal app like a mix of Fuse on WP and News Bento on PC... I still use both but Fuse hasn't seen an update in a year and it shows!
  • There is an an alternative Universal news reader app you can try, Central News Plus+, its a great news reader you can try out. It works seamlessly across devices synced and its just for $0.79 GET IT NOW ON THE STORE!. It gets updates regularly. We are prepping for our update next week or sooner and we are prepping for the biggest update when Windows 10 launches. :) Dont forget to rate the app and PM Freeman, for feedback and app improvements needed. Thanks @deMaelstorm :)
  • I just tried the regular one and didn't like the UI. I like the clean visual, first-glance look you get with Fuse's Square theme or with News Bento. Simply displaying a list of text articles then a pivot to a list of videos isn't what I'm looking for; it's quite the opposite in fact. Sorry.
  • @delMaelstrom Oh, sorry about that some of the missing features and UI, please dont hesitate to give us feedback on the app and give us suggestions on our app for improvements and missing features and we will work very heard to implement the missing features and UI improvements as some of the features and UI design you have requested to us, our e-mail is here freemanapps@outlook.com or PM Freeman @Windows Central. We are working hard as we speak on improving our app for the first big update of Central News Plus+ this summer. Any feedback is important to us. Thank you for the support :)  @DeMaelstrom   Ben. A - Freeman Technologies
  • No judgement there but it's not for me. I'm expecting something like a crossbreed of Fuse's Square theme and News Bento (on PC) : something graphical, with a Modern design and feeds sorted by sources which can be organized by categories. There, I do not want to have to navigate from a menu expanded on the side or something along these lines; I want everything displayed full screen and all.
  • Thank you for the feedback and We are heading to that UI direction of Fuse Square them and News Bento with moere modern graphical design which is more organisable with categores. The app is going to get better with the big update which will roll out this summer. :) Thanks again for feedback and support. @deMaelstrom   Ben. A Freeman Technologies
  • I used it once and I didn't like it. So it's cool for me I know with universal apps every thing will fine we will c more apps join the WP
  • Hello, Shabani, we have an universal news app already Central News Plus+, I recommend you trying it out for just $0.79.

I hope you enjoy it. PM Freeman for feedback and improvements needed to make the app evolve better. Thank you :)
  • Oh come on, I'm reading this article from weave. Great. Any suggestions on what I can replace this with? There's no way we can get them to not quit?
  • Why the whining when there are many alternatives and many quality apps joining WP daily ? Check www. metroappsauce. com they have good app recommendations on beautiful new WP apps
  • WTF? Nawww... I like that one :(
  • What a shame. @keifwoki although we lost a great part of this community, but this also brings new arrivals Central News Plus+ app (universal app), just for $0.79. We are contining to support our Windows apps for the future. :) Once you got the app, dont forget to rate the app, and respond Freeman with a PM chat, on feedback and improvments needed for the app. :) Thank you
  • Will they refund my 10€ ??????????
  • That's a pity. It's one of the only apps that I actually miss not having on Android. The already weak WP App Store lost big here. Would be nice to have a reason at least.
  • We have an alternative @DJCBS Central News Plus+(universal app) $0.79, please try it out. Rate it and PM us for feedback and improvements needed for the app.  :) Thanks.
  • it hurt so bad... T_T
  • Sorry @MattMcQueen, There is an alternative though? Would you like to try Central News Plus+ only just for $0.79. It's a great alternative to Weave News Reader. Please rate the app and plus+, PM Freeman for feedback and issues and help and improvments needed for the app. :)
  • How does the hive mind here cheer this on as a net gain for WP?  Every day the situation gets bleaker.  My 1020 is cracked and ready for a replacement and I'm not interested in a low end garbage phone running 4 year old chips with a low end screen. What keeps me with the platform? Certainly not the apps and definitely not the hardware. 
  • the cameras? Lol
  • 1) you don't want to spent that much on a phone (iPhone to be exact), 2) you dislike/hate/despise Android, 3) you are afraid to change, Or just buy the Lumia 735 already!  (or even better, a phone with firefox/ubuntu/bb OS).
  • I can't use every app. Maybe there usage was low.
  • Everytime i see something like this, i always think google buy it.
  • windows central more like windows graveyard these days
  • It seems that way doesn't it....for me...BOA, Softcard, MLB and now Weave...and this just just the apps that effect me over the last few weeks... It's starting to seem like the end is near... at least for me...
  • Break out the bottles because the crying hand begun
  • We really don't need thousands of apps that do the same thing. We just need few quality ones. Microsoft should create a new app developer department that focuses on making quality apps for Microsoft ecosystem. I love Microsoft ecosystem. I will receive an iPhone 6 as a present from my brother in two days time. I really don't know what to do with it.
  • Well, you can always give your unwanted brand new iPhone, to me!  :-)
  • Not bovvered
  • I noticed Shotly Golf app has been pulled too. Leaves customers who paid $30 for the app, deep in the bunker.
  • Ironically, through Weave I learned about my current news app Converge. Awkward...
  • Hi There, Do you want an alternative news app?, Central News Plus+ will do the job just for $0.79 (universal app). Please check it out on the store. Its a great app in addition to your current news app usage Converge. Please rate the app and PM us for feedback and improvments on the app. Thanks Kasey Pierce!!! :)
  • Hmmm, I'm using my 1520 right now, I can call, text, check email, get voice mails, take pictures, operates sonos, my thermostat at home, pull info from my biz dropbox account and read news....etc. Its a great phone! Wphone is not dead... Although I would like a new fancy flagship and want to use other apps that aren't available on WP... The win10 ecosystem should change the game for many reasons, fingers crossed and waiting for launch.
  • Well, it's sad to see Weave go. I have used it daily from the beginning to keep up with Windows related news. That said, I just installed Nextgen Reader based on the Store reviews and it is far superior to Weave. So I've already forgotten about Weave. Sucks for Weave, but there are much better RSS reader alternatives out there. Competition is a good thing.
  • Sorry to hear about that @jmagwp I hope this alternative will wipe the sadness of your face, Central News Plus+ just for $0.79. Its a great alternative news reader to Weave News Reader, its universal so it syncs across your Windows devices. Its a great addition to your Windows deivce and your daily news provider. I really recommend you getting this news reader. Once you have the app, please dont forget to rate the app and Feedback PM on our apps and the improvements nedded for our app requests. Thanks.   Freeman Technologies.
  • To much drama on the discussion, take it easy guys.
  • Damn this was my fav news reader. Guess ill have to give nextgen a shot.
  • Wonder when they will de-list Games News Now.
  • NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
  • Wasn't there a rather expensive pay-version (about 8 bucks)?
    I feel sorry for the people who bought it.
  • Actually, I think it was $10. I bought it years ago and it provided great value.
  • Same here
  • If anyone from Weave is reading this, thank you for building such a great app and for supporting the community through the years!
  • Yes they did a great job on the app. There is alot of news alternative which is good as Wave News reader, Central News Plus+ I recommend you getting this app, its just for $0.79. Its a great news reader you should try out. Plus its a universal app that runs across all your Windows devices, from PC to mobile. Please PM Freeman on feedback and improvements needed to improve the app experince. :)     Freeman Technologies

  • So long Weave, it was my first news app on WP. It served me grat

Just for $0.79, its a great universal app. Please rate the app once installed. Dont forget to PM Freeman Technologies for feedback and improvments needed for Central News :)     Freeman Technologies
  • Microsoft needs to step on the gas with windows 8, developers are dropping the platform and that's not good. Give windows 10 for phones full attention. Microsoft needs to understand the smartphone market better, people want apps and games, kids want iPhones because of all the games in the store, What about xbox games why can't we have xbox one indie games on our phones and some special titles, mortal combat announces new game for android and IOS , no wp mentioned, it goes to show that no one takes this platform seriously. You know what make them will, try adding killer instinct hd to the store and watch the magic happen. Microsft needs to fully explore the market and cater for all ages, teens adults and kids.
  • Good riddance. Weave sucked. At least for me anyway.
  • :( Not happy with Weave reader? Want to try this alternative news reader? Central News Plus+ is a great reader replacement for your Weave news reader. Just for $0.79, its a great universal app. Please rate the app once installed. Dont forget to PM Freeman Technologies for feedback and improvments needed for Central News :)     Freeman Technologies
  • Bummer! I used Weave 3-5 times a day at least for the last 4 years. To be honest, the time I spent reading news was approaching unhealthy levels. So for that, I'm glad it's going away. :-) My thumb needs a rest! Honestly, the joint on my left thumb has started popping.
  • Lol! Go to the doctor pal!
  • Yes its a bummer! However there is an alternative and a replacement to Weave News reader, you can try out our seamless Central News Plus+ universal app just for $0.79.

  • This bothers me because I use this app. I've used it since I had a Samsung Focus. Now I have to download others and go through a process of elimination... *sigh*

  • I hope nobody says its because of the universal app thing
  • This is very sad day for rss readers in windows phone history. Have used this app faithfully since its birth @ windows phone 7. Very sad to see it go. I like its design and functionality very much. WMPU also reported this and advised nexgen reader. I'm not sure if nexgen does it for me, The universal app does miss esential functionalities for me with regard to image support and especially the read aloud function. If nexgen will consider adding this to its universal app portfolio for windows phone and 8 I might invest the 2,49 euro purchase price. Otherwise I would like to know from other readers if they could recommend another reader just like weave wihich is as good or better. Thanks.
  • Yes its a sad day. There is a bright side, there is an alternative. Please try out our Central News Plus+ news reader RSS app universal app just for $0.79. I recommend you getting it, its a very good news reader application, its good as weave and even better in some features that you will enjoy. Please rate the app once installed and dont forget to PM me on Windows Central, through @FreemanApps. Thank yoU @Wevenhuis   Freeman Technologies.

  • Ok, this one is hitting me.  I would like to know why.  This was my #1 tech news site.  First Live TIle I click on when I power on my WP. 
  • Sadness. I've used this app since the WP7 days too and still prefer it over anything else I've found so far. Thanks to the team for all of their hard work over the years!

  • Is it shutting down on Windows altogether, or just Windows Phone?
    I know Lazy Worm was providing support for the Windows desktop OS.
    I always give developers props by buying their applications.
    The advertising click through, I never use and developers get no revenue from me on click through.
  • I used to use WEAVE every day. But they got to a point where they quit updating it, and it started to frustrate me, because other apps were coming out that were better and adding more features. And yet, WEAVE, which I loved, wouldn't update. I've kept it on my phone, though I rarely open it anymore, in the hopes updates would come. And even owned the premium version. Guess I won't be getting any updates. My favorites right now are Converge, Nextgen, Poki and the new Fedora Reader (which I think will be adding Feedly soon, as well). So long WEAVE, I hate to see you go, but on the other hand I was kinda frustrated you'd let it sit idle for so long.
  • @weaverly Sorry about the issues you had with WEAVE. You can add this alternative to your favorites right now, Central News Plus+ alongside with your news reader favourites lists. Its a brilliant sleek news reader app just for $0.79. (£0.79), worldwide same price. Its a good alternative news reader to WEAVE.

  • Have long since went to using Nexgen Reader. It's MUCH better.
  • Microsoft needs to give up on the phone and make software for IOS and Android.  Maybe they can still do the fitness band, but let the phone die. Or make a Lumia phone running Android.  I'd buy it in a heart beat.  Then they can beat the crap out of Samsung.
  • You're joking right?
  • Hate to see em go. I use flip board and phonely tho Posted via Windows Phone Central App

  • I will miss Weave, it has been my #1 used app since I arrived on Windows Phone. Introducing me to slickdeals, windows central and a bunch of other sites I rely on for news now. I guess it is time to move on and start the painful transition elsewhere. I tried that with Collector once and ended up back with Weave pretty quickly.

  • Microsoft should publish a list of the Apps that they are closing down on their website, like a list. Don't get rid of the really good apps keep them
  • I would like to believe that they are taking the app down so as to come with a new enhance app for win 10. Till then i' ll use WinCentralHub. Does the job i want for free. http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/wincentralhub/4b99ae68-9539-...
  • It's down! Can't access it today
  • Nothing new to add but want to show my love for Weave and wish they would reconsider.  I think I even purchased that app ... hate to see them go.
