      Geometric Weather vs Dark Sky opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      headlines After Dark Sky was acquired by Apple in March 2020, they shut down their Android and Wear OS apps in August 2020. They also announced that their iOS app, website, and API (for third-party apps) will shutdown at the end of 2022. Geometric Weather is the best alternative to Dark Sky that I have come across. It is open source and ad-free, and it uses AccuWeather data, which The Outline says is accurate about 75% of the time compared to Dark Sky's 64-67%.

      YoWindow works like your window, very simple: it displays weather conditions over a nice and peaceful landscape. So you can watch the weather looking at the landscape. Naturally - just like looking out of your window. That makes YoWindow special.
      YoWindow vs Dark Sky opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Altho YoWindow has a simple Desktop/browser view like DarkSky, YoWindow's icons at event changing times aren't as quick to see as the single bar, color gradient of DarkSky. Also there's no map. So this isn't as visually informative, mostly a text version with cartoons for background.
