Apple buys weather app Dark Sky
Apple has purchased the weather predicting app Dark Sky and plans to shut down the Android and Wear OS versions. Dark Sky is known for its hyper-local weather predictions and ability to forecast minute by minute. The Dark Sky app cost $3.99 in the US and £3.99 in the UK. Android users who still have an active subscription of Dark Sky when it stops operating in July will receive a refund. Dark Sky's API - the software that transmits information between the app and its users - will be available to customers until 2021. Dark Sky's API is used by other weather apps including Weather Line and Hello Weather.
