Last week’s poll summary: Last week, we asked you if you cared about DxOMark ratings. Out of over 38,000 total votes, the majority of voters on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube said they either somewhat care about DxOMark ratings or care very much. On the other hand, Facebook voters overwhelming said they do not care about these ratings at all.
Years ago, we asked you to tell us about your favorite weather app, and the overwhelming majority voted for Weather Timeline. Weather Timeline has been available on Google Play since 2014 and made its way to the top of almost everyone’s “best weather apps” lists for good reason. The developer, Sam Ruston, was always quick to adopt the latest Material Design guidelines, and was even awarded a Material Design award from Google in 2015 for his efforts with the weather app. The app itself was simple, packed with features, and had some of the best weather widgets out there.
Unfortunately, most people have been using the app for years and only had to pay a few bucks for the download. So, instead of creating a subscription service to keep cash flowing in, the developer decided to remove Weather Timeline from the Play Store. It will still continue to work, and previous users can still access it from the My Apps section in Google Play. People who have never downloaded the app won’t be able to, unfortunately.
So we want to know: what’s your favorite weather app? AccuWeather, Dark Sky, or are you just using the Google app to get your weather info? Or are you planning to stick with Weather Timeline for the foreseeable future? Cast your vote in the poll below.
