Dark Sky’s daring interface, sense of focus, and precipitation predictions have won plaudits, making it a favorite weather app with iOS users in the know — but the app’s streamlined nature ensured it remained a niche player. With the recent 4.0 version release, the developers are aiming for the mainstream. The app has moved beyond primarily being concerned with imminent rainfall and conditions, and now boasts a greater range of forecast content; this echoes the developer’s online effort, Forecast.io, plus the interface has been "Jony Ived," so to speak.
Just like you've gotta eat, iPhone and iPad users gotta use apps, but some people don’t venture too far past the packed-in options or maybe whatever’s at the top of the App Store charts. But maybe you’re settling for a plain old cake donut when you could have a mouth-watering strawberry and Nutella crepe — and a much better experience. We set out to replace your everyday apps, the workhorses you rely on. Sample from this buffet, and you won’t save any calories, but you will have an even better time using your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
