Approaching 100k sales, [Dark Sky has] been fairly successful; however, we’ve been continually asked for more: international support, longer-term forecasting, an Android app, and so on.

Rather than cram these things into Dark Sky, we decided to do something grander: create our own full-featured weather service from scratch, complete with 7-day forecasts that cover the whole world, beautiful weather visualizations, and a time machine for exploring the weather in the past and far future.

I’ve wanted to use Dark Sky since it was launched, but because I have a condition known as “living-in-Canada-itis”, I couldn’t. But now the same developers have launched a super slick web app and API, and it’s great.
