Apple buys Dark Sky weather app
« on: April 01, 2020, 09:23:24 »
SInce I use weatherforecast within Locus very often, this news worries me a bit: https://www.engadget.com/2020-03-31-apple-dark-sky-weather-app.html 
It says it will be closing for Android on 1st of july.
I hope if this affects Locus there will come a solid alternative because I find it very convenient to use within Locus alwas supplying accurate LOCAL weather forecast during our long distance hikes

Sadly it seems not. At least it's being treated as totally true elsewhere.

You are right. Today - still the same information. Shame, such a nice service which I just wanted to use a lot more next month (weather forecast in recorded tracks).

Seems it will work till end of 2021, so hopefully enough time to find a usable replacement.
