My favorite weather app has joined the mothership.
From “Dark Sky Has a New Home” on the company’s homepage:
Today we have some important and exciting news to share: Dark Sky has joined Apple.
Our goal has always been to provide the world with the best weather information possible, to help as many people as we can stay dry and safe, and to do so in a way that respects your privacy.
There is no better place to accomplish these goals than at Apple. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to reach far more people, with far more impact, than we ever could alone.
My take: Apple has good taste. I’ve depended for years on Dark Sky’s precise, hyperlocal weather info (typical forecast: light rain starting in 2 minutes, stopping 6 minutes later”). That app goes away on July 1, 2020. Apple better not screw it up.
