Weave – Probably the Best RSS Reader for WP7

Posted by Tanmay | Posted in Software, Windows Phone 7 | Posted on 09-02-2011


There are a bunch of RSS Applications for Windows Phone 7 right now with SimpiRSS being my long time favorite; that is until I tried out Weave.

Weave offers almost all features you’d expect from a top class full featured RSS Reader. There’s Instapaper support too along with some nice UI transitions throughout the application.

Weave is a Must Have Application for any WP7 User. They recently launched a newer version 2.3 bringing in some new features.

The entire feature list is as follows:

  • 32 pre-loaded categories including world, financial, deals, fashion, videogames, technology, and sports news just to name a few!
  • Add new categories at any time
  • Over 180 pre-loaded, high-quality news sources including CNN, Wall Street Journal, ESPN, Engadget, USA Today, NY Times, IGN, Entertainment Weekly, and many more!
  • Feed search – you can search for new feeds by topic or website name
  • Easily manage your feeds and categories via the settings screen
  • Preview articles with a touch of a finger
  • View full articles at your leisure
  • Share articles with your friends, via email!
  • Post an article to your Facebook wall!
  • Tweet an article to your Twitter followers!
  • Send an article to Instapaper!
  • Loading indicator – now you can see when exactly Weave is pulling down new data!
  • Manual refresh button – users can refresh news for the current category they are viewing
  • Performance enhancements – in particular, the UI is more responsive while news is being updated.
  • Swipe-to-next-article: you can now swipe through articles when viewing an article summary

Application Description:

Weave comes preloaded with 33 categories of interest – from sports to technology, politics, world news, videogames, wine, comic books, art, celebrity gossip, movies, travel – just to name a few! For every category, we went and found the highest quality blog and news sources, the ones with the best content, the most interesting articles, and the best images.

As soon as you open Weave the first time, you select the categories you are interested in, and within seconds you have created what is essentially a high-quality magazine that is catered just to you! A virtual magazine that is always updated with fresh articles – without you having to do anything at all!

Weave 2.3 is available in the Marketplace for 1.99$ and also offers a Free Trial Version having almost all the features but Ad supported.
