Earlier this year, Apple bought the Dark Sky weather app and announced that it would shut down Dark Sky for Android on July 1st. But in a surprise blog post, Dark Sky announced that its Android and Wear OS apps will continue working until August 1st.
All existing Dark Sky Android customers will receive a “full refund” come August 1st. Dark Sky hasn’t clarified if the “full refund” covers one year of service ($2.99) or multiple years of service.
Anyway, now’s the time to find a new weather app. There’s no shortage of great apps to choose from, including a handful of options that run on the Dark Sky API. Just keep in mind that Dark Sky API support ends sometime in 2021, so you may find yourself searching for a new weather app again next year.
