Top Twitter Reactions to Apple Buying Dark Sky
The internet did not hold back in reacting to yesterdays news that Apple acquired Dark Sky.
It’s become a bit of a cliche to hate Apple — especially if you’re an Android user. And this acquisition was yet another reason for many people to criticize the tech giant. With the acquisition, Apple is shutting down the weather app’s API and eliminating the Android app.
Here are some of the top reactions from journalists and thought leaders on Twitter regarding the Dark Sky news:

Shutting down the API and the Android app feels incredibly petty. https://t.co/pHMEacyC2T

Apple buying Dark Sky is a good test for my general "acquisitions are bad" instinct: iOS having a great weather app is a good market solution, as people won't download any of the extremely shady third-party weather apps that sell location data. Discuss.https://t.co/foedReQUWQ

#Weather #Meteorology | #Apple snatches up #DarkSky, arguably the best, trusted #weather #forecast #app. Bye-bye #Android and #Wear versions. Hello to a new way for Apple to scrape up your location and other data. Disappointing! pic.twitter.com/CzXeC2gbJl

As someone who recently bought a can opener online out of boredom, I understand why Apple bought Dark Sky https://t.co/vrHt3mjdg3
