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.



  • Best weather app ever

    I had Dark Sky on my android phone and got hooked so when I drank the Apple kool aid and got an iPhone I had to have it again.
  • Beautiful but it’s wrong all the time

    By bruinslacker
    The design is great but the predictions are flat out wrong. Dark Sky and the iPhone weather app often disagree. iPhone weather is usually right. The last month the iPhone app has been right very single time. I should stop even checking Dark Sky.
  • No longer accurate

    By ReviewByS
    This app used to be very accurate and dependable. Over the last year it is the opposite. Displays “Rain is starting” when it’s sunny and no rain within a hundred miles. Or it’s pouring rain and the app shows nothing happening. I haven’t moved, so it’s not a difference in location. Disappointing, used to love this app.
  • Best weather app!

    If you plan on ever going outside again, you need this app. I’m always in shock when businesses with outdoor areas aren’t using it. You could almost set tour watch to these predictions.
  • Radar

    By DSE Contractor
    I like everything about the app except the radar. It just doesn’t seem very detailed or polished like other weather applications. That part alone is why this will not be my go to weather app. I want to see the same detailed radar information that I get from my local TV stations with the different colors for intensity. Fix that part and this will be a great app. Especially since there are others that are free that have this much better radar.
  • Wonderful weather app

    By nysuasian
    Tells you everything you need to know. Make sure to turn on notifications because it tells you before it’s about to rain!
  • Very practical

    By cucumber farmer
    The localization of the weather makes this app very helpful.
  • Annoying

    By Simon01351
    I set Location Services to only when using the app. Every single time I open the app it demands they be turned back on. Every. Single. Time. I have no tolerance for app developers tracking everything you do, when the app has no need for that information, and then trying to harass you into submission.
  • Battery drain

    By pianomanmark
    My battery has been draining at a faster rate ever since downloading this app. Like the features, but worth 3.99 to kill my battery mid-day? Don’t think so.
  • Highly recommend!

    This app is very helpful planning for the weather. It’s near 100% accurate and completely reliable. You won’t be disappointed.
