Lazyworm Apps and Seles Games teaming up to bring Weave to Windows 8


Windows Phone and Windows 8 have always had passionate developers with equally motivated fans (you). Two of your favorites are teaming up. Lazyworm Apps is teaming up with Seles Games to bring the popular RSS newsreader Weave to Windows 8.

Weave has been around since the beginning of Windows Phone, becoming better with each and every update. The most significant update came out at the tail end of last year bringing with it support for Windows Phone 8. Besides getting praise from us here at Windows Phone Central, Weave has near universal acclaim in its Store ratings from all you out there. It’s a fast, fluid and beautiful application that should be at the top of your list of news readers.

Lazyworm is taking on the design and development of a Windows 8 version of Weave. They’re the masterminds behind Metrotube on Windows Phone 8 and Tweetro+ on Windows 8. One an amazing YouTube application and the other a solid Twitter app. Here’s a choice quote from Atta Elayyan, managing director at Lazyworm Applications, in their press release:

“I have been using Weave ever since it launched on Windows Phone 7, so I was excited when Seles Games approached us with this partnership opportunity. Weave has proven to be a popular solution on Windows Phone and I believe it has even more potential on Windows. We now have an invested interest in Weave’s ongoing success and have been given full creative control over the project, so expect an experience that is in line with all other Lazyworm products.”

Personally, I can’t wait to see what the team comes up with. But we’ll all have to wait, the app is expected to be available for download until June. It will also still be published under Seles Games.


In the meantime you can download Weave for Windows Phone. There is a free version and a paid version ($9.99) that removes all the ads. If you’re hesitant about that price, just download the free version and check it out first. QR codes below, free on the left and paid on the right.

SAYSteez says:

How about you update metrotube lazy??

Sam Sabri says:

What's wrong with it?

That's what I was wondering, I have no problems with it. Perhaps it hasn't been updated SAYSteez because it does not require an update

London Jr says:

the live hasn't been working correctly for quite some time now... ive emailed the developer, never heard back. The live tile just went dead. tried unistalling and reinstalling. just doesnt flip. and i have the paid version.

mdscj4 says:

Try emailing the dev more than just once lol that won't do much.

London Jr says:

yea, i never stayed on it... this post just reminded to try again...

LazywormApps says:

This is mainly due to YouTube's 'top-rated' and 'featured' feeds not updating for some time.  
Top-rated feeds seem to be working again now though so hopefully the live tiles are updating again.
Haivng said that, the phone version of Metrotube hasn't seen any updates for some time now so we do deserve some flack! In our defense, we've been hard at work on the Windows 8 version ;)

SAYSteez says:

Was talking more about the battery drain, heat issues, authors videos not loading, and some random errors here and there..
I have a Lumia 920 btw

I think the heat issues and battery drain are just aspects unique to every processor intensive app. My Lumia gets hot too when I watch videos for a long time.

London Jr says:

thanks, it actually is working now, I had it as a small tile cuz I wasn't, I do appreciate such a quality app period, so thanks, those are rare...

zulu69 says:

Awesome. I am desperately waiting for the win 8 version. Any time frame at all ;)

jfa1 says:

The article mentions JUne

amirhj says:

My subscription list stopped working recently. Any updates?

Whodaboss says:

My tile flips. Works great on my Lumia 810.

London Jr says:

it works now, I have a Lumia 810 also, it wasn't working for the longest

rodneyej says:

$9.99?? Are they nutz?

rodneyej says:

Something tells me they mean 99¢

walter1832 says:

No, it's 10 bucks

EAA575 says:

Nope, it's $9.99

No, they mean $9.99

vinnyvin says:

No Its 9.99!!!!!

laraclara says:

There is a free version available which is the exact same thing. If you really hate ads, you can pay the 9.99 to get rid of them. I use it  every day so I opted to do so but otherwise the free and paid version are equally great. Just a matter of preference.

fwaits says:

The free version can be ad free simply by clicking 1 ad then backing out of the browser back to the app.  Ad free for the session.  Done and done.

wtrmlnjuc says:

$0.00 Are you nutz?

+1   If we want devs to come and stay on the platform we have to support them.

rodneyej says:

So did you pay the $10??

I bought it when I had  my Focus, but have not installed in on my 920 yet. But as others have said, the functionality in the trial is exactly the same. the $$$ is for support and to help keep things running smoothly. 

lubbalots says:

I bought it when it was .99$.

I think that the developers deserve support by the paid app. Weave is one of the most solid applications out there. It's the best newsreader of any platform for me.

aienjell says:

Exactly what I was thinking, been waiting forever for an update and live tile fix.

fwaits says:

What live tile fix?

bono5112 says:

Awesome!! Its my favorite app on WP8...other then WPCentral of course

Quin 2013 says:


It quickly became my fav news app.

bjax says:

I second your thoughts exactly!

Shobiz says:

Hell Yeah!!!!!!

James8561 says:

if anyone is alarmed at the high price of $9.99 it's because that in order to compress and make the articles reading-friendly to save you data and time, Seles Games has to rent separate servers so the extra $ is for bandwidth.

Sam Sabri says:

Why would we be alarmed? If a dev wants more than one dollar for an app he/she put a lot of work into they can.

Shambels says:

Well the current version is $9.99 so I don't see the deal if there is a free version with ads. I would buy it as well like I do for most dev but I will say that price is pushing it...

AngryNil says:

My thoughts as well. Weave is quality and one of the first apps I bought (it used to be priced at $3.50), but $10 is a bit steep in the mobile world. If I had to guess, there probably wasn't a huge audience who opted for paid over ad-supported so Seles just priced it high to get what they could.

DaiaX says:

Idk about others but mine load feeds slow compared to other app(ahem.. Fuse.. Ahem). WP 7.8 Lumia 710.

Laura Knotek says:

No sluggishness for me on Nokia Lumia 900 WP7.8.

Laura Knotek says:

I can't wait. Weave is the best Windows Phone RSS feed app, and I've been pushing for SelesGames to get a Windows 8 app for us.

Shambels says:

I love the app since the news sources I use arnt on WP (cough ign cough cough) so I love the feed. Also disqus is good as well.

Nakazul says:

Weave is very nice looking but never worked for my local news. It always sends me to IE anyway.

paulm187 says:

Weave one of the best reader app on ANY platform, glad its coming to Win 8

Luke Morris says:

Weave runs fine for me on the Ativ S and i love it live tile works too.

Love weave. It was the first app I ever downloaded.

Gn0m4 says:

Only 100 feeds? Why !!!! ??
We need to use the program with more feeds please.

Overpriced at $0.00.  "Politics" gets you nothing but the right wing lunacy of  "Science" = Popular Science only.  Buh-bye, junkware.

5 months have passed and the app is not ready yet :/
