Dark Sky Weather 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.

  • No longer accurate

    By Patri tree
    We are in 6 inches of snow, and the app is saying light rain. It used to be spot on but the this winter it’s consistently way off.
  • Don’t see why It has to be a paid app

    By D4wntorment
    I bought this thinking it would warn me from sudden precipitation, but so far it doesn’t seem to be much different than other free apps. It looks nice, but doesn’t always work on my Apple Watch complication either without having to manually start up the app. Otherwise it shows just dashes on my watch. I heard it doesn’t update properly on the watch complication either. Otherwise it is a nice looking app and it does what it says it does at least.
  • What’s up Dark Sky?

    By Joanneant
    Dark Sky has been my go-to weather app but recently it’s missing the mark regarding accuracy. Has something changed?
  • Decent but same ole weather app

    By Joeblew
    Same as most of the better weather apps except the radar is a different color. Tells you the hourly weather, daily weather, and has a radar. Annoying like all other weather apps is when you go to the radar you still have to press play and then it takes 10 seconds to load. Definitely not worth paying for
  • Looks great

    By Veryveryunhappy
    I love the way the app looks, but the forecasts are junk. Yesterday, the forecast said snow this afternoon and then they changed the forecast this morning to no snow. And it's now snowing. This happens all the time.
  • Disappointed

    By heatherfahy
    I bought this app because their site stopped working via safari on my phone. The site used to be spot on all the time in 2016/17 but, recently this app can not tell me its raining/snowing even if it’s pouring out. Not sure what happened but I’m pretty bummed that my phone’s stock weather app is more accurate and detailed.
  • Great App

    By grg7562
    This app is right 98%of the time and I live in a rural town where there is no forecast given locally!
  • Long time user. Great app.

    By michaelfriedman
    This is a good no nonsense weather application and it’s accurate.
  • Feels Like & Actual Temp at the same time?

    By jperezgiz27
    I love the app! The only thing I believe it could improve on is having the option to view BOTH the real temperature AND the Feels Like temperature at the same time, both on the iPhone and the Apple Watch. Currently, you have to pick one or the other. Would love to see this feature added and then it would be 5-Star perfect!
  • Worst weather app ever

    By Sherri7
    Waste of my money!!! I guess the reason they do not let you try before you buy is because no one would pay money for this app. No advance radar, only shows up to time it is not 1 hour ahead. You cannot adjust setting to your liking. Cannot adjust speed Radar loop. I am a boater and need to see radar weather radar map at least 1 hour ahead of time, it shows shifts. Not when it is on top of me. I am going back to NOAA.
