Apple-Acquired Dark Sky Delays Shutting Down Android App Until August 1
Apple in March purchased weather app Dark Sky, and at that time, Dark Sky's developers said that the Dark Sky for Android app would be discontinued on July 1, 2020.
Now that it's July, Dark Sky's developers today announced that the discontinuation of the Android app will be delayed, and it will be available until August 1, 2020.
The Android app will be shuttered on August 1, and Android users will no longer be able to use it. Subscribers who are active at that time will be provided with a full refund.
Dark Sky also plans to shut down the weather forecasts, maps, and embeds available on its website on August 1. Dark Sky previously said that its API will continue to function through the end of 2021, but no new API signups are being accepted.

I've got a hunch Apple plan to do a combo services release: News, Weather and TV.
I'm mostly an Apple user, but lately I've been consciously making decisions to move away from the lock-in. Right now I'm going through the tedious process of getting stuff out of iCloud keychain and into Bitwarden.
