Apple shook the tech world last month when they acquired the popular hyperlocal weather app “Dark Sky” and immediately announced they were going to discontinue the Android app. If you’ve been on the hunt for a good replacement, check out Clyma Weather by XDA Senior Member KDB223. It’s a fresh new weather app available on the Google Play Store today.
Clyma bills itself as a simple and clean app that will deliver “no more inconsistent weather reports.” Rather than checking multiple weather providers to get a reliable forecast in your area, Clyma combines data from three providers so the forecasts are more consistent. Dark Sky is one of those 3 providers (the other two are OpenWeatherMap and Weatherbit) until the API is phased out. Check out the full feature list and screenshots below.
- 3 reputed weather providers – No more inconsistency, with data sourced from 3 separate, independent, and reputed weather providers (Dark Sky, OpenWeatherMap, Weatherbit).
- Weekly forecast – Daily weather forecast for the next 7 days so you can plan ahead for the whole week
- Clean, simple, and beautiful design – Bold colors and dynamic animations for every weather condition for a pleasant surprise every time you check the weather.
- Multiple themes – Choose from multiple themes, including a dark theme and black theme for OLED screens. Clyma also supports system-level dark theme on Android 10 and above.
- Homescreen widgets – Get the latest accurate weather right on your home screen, in a total of 3 different sizes (Clyma Pro)
In a future update, the developer plans to add support for hourly weather forecasts.
Here are screenshots of the app running on my Pixel device:
You can download the app from the Google Play Store now. The developer says the app will be available soon from XDA Labs.
The app is quite new and is still in development, so if you have feedback, leave a comment on the developer’s forum thread linked below.
