Windows Phone 8’s Weave now syncs with Windows 8 and more

If you don’t know Weave it is one of the best news reading apps available for Windows Phones. A beta for Weave has been out for two months but now the full version is out available for the public and has a lot of new features to talk about. The biggest is that now Weave can be enjoyed on Windows 8 which allows for syncing across platforms using Weave Cloud Services.


This new Weave Cloud API is a big change and is now powered by Windows Azure which is similar to Google Reader and Feedly. All your feeds and news are saved in the cloud and can be accessed through your Windows 8 phone or just on Windows 8. You can now login through Google, Twitter, Facebook or your Microsoft accounts. Everything is synced with all your devices, so if you star something on one device it will be starred on another.

In addition to the cloud changes there has been a whole host of visual changes and bug fixes. There is now a new streamlined Panoramic home screen layout. There is also a new news layout look, however all the old ones are still available. Bug fix wise they have fixed the speech function and some mobile issues.

All of this is good and well and great for Windows 8 users but there is some things you should know. The biggest is that with this update Weave does not work with Windows 7.X phones. There is also two versions of Weave; a free one and a paid one for $9.99. If you’re ready to get your Weave on download it now on the Windows Phone Store.
