Apple Buys Dark Sky

Adam Grossman, writing on The Dark Sky Blog:

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.

This is a very interesting acquisition for Apple. It would also be interesting if Apple’s Weather app finally got radar and severe weather alerts. Those have been the two major things keeping me from using the app.
