Bryan Chaffin and Charlotte Henry join host Kelly Guimont to discuss Apple’s release of a an iPhone in 2020 (or not), and Apple’s acquisition of weather app Dark Sky.
On its blog today, Dark Sky announced that it has been purchased by Apple. The iOS app will continue to be available in the App Store.
Yesterday Andrew discovered something new in iOS: AQI in Apple Maps. It’s a new feature that came with iOS 12.2. Here’s what it means.
It adds a ton of content to the game, like a Diplomacy victory, new civilizations, and climate change.
You can use Apple’s Maps app on your iPhone to see the local hourly forecast without having to use the Weather app. Here’s how.
Dark Sky, my favorite local weather app on the iPhone, was updated on Thursday with new complications for Apple Watch Series 4. That means fans of the Infograph watch face get a slick complication that matches the new look Apple is pushing. It looks like the update also fixed a problem where the app defaulted to New York City for forecasts, which kind of defeated the purpose of hyper-local data. Dark Sky costs US$3.99 and is available on Apple’s App Store. The update is free for current users.
Weather Now presents information in an easy-to-digest way, and it looks great.
Maps has a nifty little built-in weather widget that’ll let you see the conditions of any place you’re zoomed in to—and this works on the Mac or your iPhone and iPad! Come on in and see what we’re talking about.
Apple Maps displays the temperature of your location, but you can also get more details with a 3D Touch Apple Maps action. Here’s what to do.
Whether you have a new iPhone, or you’re a veteran Apple user, your experience will be about apps.
It’s a small thing, to be sure, but when Bryan Chaffin get up to work, he’s found himself immediately drawn to it, sitting all sweet and pretty in his Mac’s Notifications.
You might even find it easier than using an app.
iOS World Clocks do require some attention to time zone fundamentals, but they mostly fall short in details. This iOS world clock from ozPDA, called Everywhere, fixes all that.
Graham Dawson is an iOS and Android indie developer who specializes in meteorological and astronomical reference apps. He’s the founder and director of Ajnaware Pty, Ltd in Australia and publishes apps under the name ozPDA. Graham holds a B.Sc. in physics and meteorology, and a Ph.D. in oceanography. Graham told me about his early interest in weather thanks to extreme conditions, especially snow. That’s because, in his youth, he was skiing in Switzerland. Soon he had a weather observation station in his backyard, and he could think of nothing else as he entered his undergraduate years. Today, he publishes a wide range of apps related to the sun, moon, wind, weather and time. Some feature augmented reality. Thanks to his academic background, these apps have rock solid computational credentials. Graham told me how it all came to be.
