I'm wondering if there might be in the pipeline a method similar to weak sauce where you just downloaded an apk. and you can gain root access without having to go to the trouble of downloading Android sdk , etc, etc, command prompts etc and in my case having to go to the Internet cafe as I don't use PC /Laptop, much and all as I love HTC but it's a bloody nightmare when it comes to rooting compared to Samsung which was simple.

I already tried weak sauce and it force closes when I click on agree but I did read that it was really initially for Verizon in USA so I wasn't overly surprised it wouldn't work.

To gain root escalation in that way there must be an exploitable bug. Until no holes are found, no temp root methods will be out.

Is there a way to root without PC? Does Weaksauce work on the Google Play Edition?

I don't think weak sauce ever worked for this device. Old exploits get patched. Using a method from years ago, won't work.

Try kingroot, although results have been mixed.
