Weather Line Acquired by Mystery Buyer

Weather Line:

In recent months, we were approached by a buyer. They saw the uniqueness of Weather Line and the strong foundation we’ve built. While we aren’t able to provide further details on their future plans for the app, we hope you can understand, and will look forward to it.

The acquisition means the app is going away. Today, we removed Weather Line from the App Store. For all existing Weather Line users, free and paid, the app will continue working for 13 months, until April 1, 2022.

Weather Line has been consistently excellent, and has been one of my very favorite apps since it debuted. A great app that always stayed at the forefront of iOS design and forged a distinct identity with an infographic-focused design.

All good things must come to an end, but it feels particularly sad with Weather Line. Of all weather apps I’ve used — and I’ve used a lot — Weather Line is the best suited to iOS 14 widgets. Weather Line’s presentation has been widget-like since before there were widgets.

I’ll enjoy it while I can.
