Last week, Apple went and screwed over a bunch of Android customers by shopping for Dark Sky and saying its elimination from the Play Store. Not solely that, the Dark Sky API is being shuttered too, so even our different favourite climate apps might want to discover an alternate climate supply.
Dark Sky was my favourite climate app, so I used to be on the hunt final week for a brand new one. I ended up deciding on Overdrop; it’s actually well-designed, has loads of theming choices, and many widgets.
I requested you to vote to your favourite climate app final week, and the outcomes have been truly a little bit stunning in comparison with the final time we requested you this query.
What’s your favourite climate app?
Out of practically 1,000 whole votes, 21.7% of voters stated their favourite climate app is the tried-and-true AccuWeather. This is stunning for a couple of causes. I personally discover the design clunky and a bit dated. Also, the final time we requested this query in 2018, Google Weather/Google Assistant/Google Search received this ballot by a landslide. Now it’s taking part in second fiddle with 14.2% of the votes.
Third place goes to the soon-to-be-defunct Dark Sky with 13.1% of the votes, whereas 10.9% of you merely use your cellphone’s default climate app.
Today Weather can also be a well-liked choice with 7.eight% of the votes, and Weather Underground achieved 6.2% of the votes.
