Minor Update - Version 6.5

Posted on November 20, 2023Updates

In our latest update, version 6.5, we bring about significant changes to the backend infrastructure of our app. While the frontend appearance and user experience remain largely unchanged, we have undertaken important updates behind the scenes.

Weather Forecast API Transition

Previously, we relied on the Dark Sky API for accurate weather forecasts. However, due to Apple's acquisition of Dark Sky and the subsequent discontinuation of their API, we encountered temporary functionality issues. To address this, we have switched to using Visual Crossing as an alternative weather forecast provider.

Backend Migration to Directus

To further improve performance and provide more flexibility, we have migrated our entire backend from Laravel to Directus. This transition ensures seamless data management and allows for better integration capabilities.

Additionally, we have removed Covid-19 statistics from the app.

Stay tuned as we continue to innovate and improve your app experience with future updates.
