Dark Sky Weather iOS App Details

Dark Sky can tell you at a glance exactly when it will rain (or snow) up to an hour in advance, so you’re free to walk the dog or run out to lunch and know you’ll stay dry. You can also explore the most beautiful weather animation you’ve ever seen, both forward in time or back. (Dark Sky is available in the US, UK and Ireland.) YOUR WEATHER, DOWN TO THE MINUTE Using GPS, Dark Sky is able to create forecasts for your precise location, giving you minute-by-minute predictions for the next hour and hour-by-hour forecasts for the next day and week. BEAUTIFUL WEATHER ANIMATIONS The same technology that powers Dark Sky’s predictions also allows us to make the world’s first perfectly smooth radar animation. Other apps show you a chunky slideshow that makes it nearly impossible to tell how storms are moving. But Dark Sky’s radar animation lets you see the actual path of the storm: how it moved in the past, and where it’s going in the future. PUSH NOTIFICATIONS Dark Sky comes with advanced notification options: Receive down-to-the-minute alerts before it starts raining at your exact location, get notified of government severe weather alerts (for such things as thunderstorms, flooding, hurricanes, etc), or even create your own custom notifications covering the next 24 hours for things like temperature, wind, precipitation and more. Even if you haven't opened the app in days, Dark Sky will tell you what you need to know, when you need to know it. TODAY WIDGET The Dark Sky Notification Center Widget tells you at a glance what's going to happen in the next hour and the next week, so you don't even have to unlock your phone to quickly check the weather before heading out. APPLE WATCH Dark Sky looks great on your wrist. Get notifications and check out the weather for the next week with the Dark Sky app built from scratch for Apple Watch.

  • Nice look and feel. Widget stinks.

    The app itself is good. Visually it looks great. I’d love to use it as my go to weather app. However, the widget stinks. Yes, it does show precipitation in the next hour, which is good. Outside of that it is useless. It shows an icon for the next three days weather and the current temperature. I don’t want a widget to show me any advanced daily forecast. I want precipitation for the next hour, and hourly forecast for the rest of the day. Any advanced day forecast can be determined within the app. The BeWeather app blows Dark Sky’s widget away. The widget is fully customizable and amazing. I’ll still take BeWeather right now. The app content is concise and shows daily summaries too. Also, the Dark Sky widget currently fails to load in iOS 11.
  • A must have!! Worth it!!

    This app is so on point.. says " going to rain in 9mins ..for 10 mins!" It does exactly what it says. Perfect for running out to cover my outdoor stuff.. or know if I'm going to do an event outside. We all hate paying for apps but this one is worth every penny & prob even more in my eyes!! Yes everyone it does change it's forecast but least u know ..
  • Very accurate local predictions and a beautiful UI

    Notifications before it rains are especially useful.
  • Watch app never updates

    For the past week or so the watch app just displays an icon and no information.
  • Not worth the price

    I accidentally downloaded the app. I had already spent the money so I just used it. It has some cool features but it’s not very accurate. It should either be free or only .99
  • Does not work with Apple Watch 3

    It has always been a great Apple phone app, but its support for the Apple Watch has always been spotty. With the latest Watch OS update, it does not work at all.
  • Excellent Weather Info at a Glance

    This app was recommended to me. I installed it a few months ago. I am impressed with how much I can see so easily. It tells me when it’s going to rain or be fair over the next hours or days with amazing precision. A swipe brings up a global map that graphically displays the weather and puts it into motion. It will alert me when it is getting ready to rain, and for how long, all for where I actually am sitting. It is the most amazing weather app I have ever used and now, the only one. Easy to use showing really useful information.
  • Excellent but...

    Dark Sky is the best weather app for the iPhone. But as many other users have reported it’s Apple Watch version is non-functional 99% of the time. Dark Sky should fix this or withdraw its Apple Phone app from the market.
  • Best App for Accurate Weather

    This app lacks a nice radar that shows rainfall but it makes up for it in simplicity of app and accuracy. The extended forecast changes but the hourly predictions are nearly spot on. This is my go to and I have used a million weather apps.
