Arcus Weather – An Accurate Android Weather App

UPDATE: May 9th 2020. The Arcus Weather app author got in touch with me on Twitter to let me know that sadly, the Arcus Weather app will be shutting down. 🙁 Thanks to Dan Benton for leaving a comment to confirm this news via the Google Play Store too (see below). I’ll be updating this blog post with a link to a new weather app once I’ve tracked a suitable replacement down. If you know of a weather app I should take a look at, feel free to leave a comment below!

Arcus Weather - The Most Accurate Android Weather AppLiving in the United Kingdom with its very changeable weather means that when I leave the house, I like to know whether it’s going to rain or shine.

Arcus Weather is an app for Android Smartphones that can use hyper-local data to give you very accurate weather forecasts for where you live.

I recently wrote about Dark Sky – Hyper Local Weather Information. Since I wrote that article, Dark Sky has been acquired by Apple who are sadly retiring the Android app.

Arcus Weather is a very strong replacement to Dark Sky for Android users!

Arcus uses the new (the makers of Dark Sky for iOS) API to get the most accurate, and most current weather information.

I’ve used Arcus Weather for a while now, and the weather forecasts it gives are very accurate.

You can set the application to notify you if rain is due, and alert you to severe weather forecasts.

Arcus can be configured to sit in your Android notification bar and let you know the latest weather forecast at a glance.

It’s accurate, down to your street level, and it saves you getting soaked in the rain. What more could you want?

    To quote the Arcus Google App... Arcus will be shutting down in the near future. The source of Arcus' data, Dark Sky, was recently purchased by Apple. In their infinite wisdon, they've decided to shut down the API by end of 2021. I wont be waiting that long to stop paying Apple a penny of any earnings. Disappointed by this terribly, but thank you to those who have supported me through the years. It's been fun!
