Dark Sky blog:

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.

The Dark Sky apps are unavailable here in Canada so I’m optimistic that their purchase by Apple will bring the features and functionality I’ve heard a lot about to us finally. Secondarily, it’s nice to see Apple bringing even more services like this under their own roof instead of relying on others to fill in (and access) the data.

In terms of what Apple’s Dark Sky will look like, I imagine an evolved version of the current weather app with specific features from Dark Sky where it makes sense. I have a feeling that people looking for a radically different experience will be disappointed.
