Gorgeous Weave for Windows 8 keeps you on top of latest news on a larger screen
Weave is a popular news reading app for Windows Phone, developed by Seles Games- a well-known and respected developer for the Windows platforms. Development has been well underway for some time for a Windows client. This app has now been released and is available for download on your Windows PC, perfect for tablets owned by those who are active and on the go.
Working with Lazyworm Apps to release Weave for Windows 8, the developer has been able to add the title to the list of Windows 8 apps already available, which includes the likes of Metrotube and Tweetro+. If you're familiar with Weave on Windows Phone, you'll feel right at home with the Windows version, the only difference is you have more screen real estate to enjoy the latest feeds with.
Utilising RSS feeds, you can add sources of information to the app that will help you keep up-to-date with everything that's happening online, in a centralised location. If you're not sure what to add, fear not as Weave comes with numerous sources to choose from out the box. A custom search system also helps you get started, should you wish to further customise your news experience.
Additional features in the Windows 8 version include the ability to customise the main hub, manage articles (favourite, share, mark as read), as well as the ability to log in and synchronise with other Windows 8 installations. Currently, cross-platform synchronisation with Windows Phone is in the works and is reported to be available within the next few weeks.
We've previously praised the mobile version of Weave for being both lightweight and a breeze to use. You can download Weave (opens in new tab) from the Windows Store. The app is currently available for free, but unobtrusive advertising will be implemented in the future with the option to go ad-free.

feedly was a convenient replacement for google reader but i'm not in love with it.
Is the WP version at least getting an update so we can sync and get the same feeds into the win 8 version?
And you got to support video playback soon... or at least let us open pages in IE. Pretty please? Oh and instapaper but that's asking for too much considering it's still so early
