Way back in September 2018, we found out that Pocket Weather was living on borrowed time. Being an app from the team at Shifty Jelly, we were pretty fond of it but now need to find other options. The promised 12 months of continued functionality is over and soon Pocket Weather will be switched off for good.
Users of the popular weather app have seen a notice in the app from the team that finally, there will be an end to service on December 31 of this year. This is due to cost of data and servers being prohibitive for continued service.
It’s a sad day for Pocket Weather users who (like me) have been ignoring the approaching end of life but much like when Google ended Inbox, life will go on. Now comes the difficult decision on which one of the available weather apps I’m going to use moving forward.
