    News reading is an important part of my daily mobility use. I have found that Weave serves this purpose well, but I was wondering whether there are any other apps that I may have missed.

    So can anyone suggest a news app that is ;

    - media rich (i.e. lovely to look at)
    - aggregates news from different sources
    - has a constantly updating live tile

    I have tried the following but I still keep coming back Weave

    Pulse - Not a fan of the ribbons on phones. Works well on Tablets though

    Fuse - See above

    NewsLab - This app has a lot of potential as it really follows the Metro philosophy. However it is slow to load and has not been updated in quite a while, and I cant find it in the marketplace. Has it been discontinued?


    News 360 - I find their new update is actually a step backwards from the previous version.

    News Republic - I like their approach on selecting news based on tags. But I feel the app, though moving in the right direction, has some ways to go.

    Same here with news (particularly rss) being a part of my must-have apps. So far no news or RSS reader seem to be the best, but give a look at the following:

    NewsSpot (ad supported version sync 200 unread articles - Google NewsReader)
    http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/ap...4-68d71c962f02

    FeedWorm (Google Reader client, and quite good)
    http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/ap...b-78e7d1fa76f8

    FeedReader Free (Google Reader client and custom rss feeds)
    http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/ap...b-78e7d1fa76f8

    Weave (free rss reader...very slick...start with this one)
    http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/ap...7-c7347be73fec

    Qik RSS Feeds (looks promising, but doesn't support offline and your own feeds yet - developer says more features coming)
