苹果收购流行天气应用 Dark Sky ,立即砍掉安卓版

为了提升iPhone、iPad和其他设备上的天气应用,苹果收购了热门天气应用Dark Sky。

周二早些时候,深空在其网站上宣布了这笔交易,交易价格未公开,并表示“很高兴有机会接触比我们自己多得多的人,其影响力远远超过我们。”

Dark Sky公司表示,其天气应用iOS版将不会有任何变化,但该应用程序将不再可供Android和WearOS应用用户下载。现有Android用户的服务将持续到7月1日,届时该应用将被关闭。联合创始人亚当·格罗斯曼在博客中表示,Dark Sky网站将一直运营到7月1日,并将在2021年底前保持活跃,以支持应用编程接口和iOS应用程序客户。在苹果应用商店里,Dark Sky应用的价格是3.99美元。

格罗斯曼写道:“我们的目标一直是为世界提供最好的天气信息,帮助尽可能多的人保持干燥和安全,同时尊重你的隐私。”Dark Sky已被苹果公司重新命名为Dark Sky.

通过购买Dark Sky,苹果得到了一款天气应用,该应用因其向用户提供特定数据和天气警报的能力而广受欢迎。近年来,苹果公司的本地天气应用并没有取得多大改观,2013年6月推出iOS 7后,苹果终于获得了重大升级。

Aiming to boost the weather app on its iPhone, iPad, and other devices, Apple has acquired Dark Sky, a popular weather app.

Dark Sky announced the deal, which was for an undisclosed price, on its Website earlier Tuesday, saying it is "thrilled to have the opportunity to reach far more people, with far more impact, than we ever could alone."

Dark Sky said there will be no changes to the iOS version of its weather app but that the app will no longer be available for download for Android and Wear OS app users. Service will continue for existing Android users until July 1, when the app will be shut down. The Dark Sky website will remain operational until July 1 and will remain active through the end of 2021 to support API and iOS App customers, co-founder Adam Grossman said in the blog. The Dark Sky app costs $3.99 in Apple's App Store.

"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," wrote Grossman. Dark Sky has been rebranded Dark Sky by Apple.

By purchasing Dark Sky, Apple gets its hands on a weather app that has become popular for its ability to provide users with specific data and weather alerts. Apple's native weather app hasn't gotten much of an overhaul in recent years, last receiving a major upgrade with the launch of iOS 7 in June of 2013.
