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.

    I really love this app because it lets me know when rain is on the way so I can get my tools to safety and windows rolled up etc. The hour by hour forecasts are also very helpful and more accurate than the local weatherman in West Palm Beach.
  • Must have!

    I had heard a lot of great things about Dark Sky but didn’t feel like spending $4 on a weather app until I got caught in a downpour with no warning out of nowhere. I got home bought Dark Sky and it accurately told me what the stock weather app didn’t and even told me how much longer it would rain. The accuracy of the forecasts are fantastic. The Apple Watch companion is well designed and I look forward to using it for many years to come.
  • Dark Sky works the best

    By Traveling mucha
    this is by far the best weather app i can find in Apple Store. normally i try new apps and delete them in a day or two. Dark Sky is definitely an exception. works accurately almost everywhere where i travel and i fly over 100.000 miles each year. i use Dark Sky for several years and i am very pleased each time i open this app. thank you the Dark Sky team

    I have yet to get a rain notice. It was pouring earlier and the app had no idea. The radar is subpar. Have to zoom in to my location from the global map every time I use it. And it locates me about 70 miles southeast of where I actually am. The graphics are not as fantastic as others would have you believe. I’m starting to think I wasted $4. Buy yourself something nice with my money.
  • Only complaint

    It’d be really nice if you could set weather alerts based on saved locations or at least one location. Instead of having to turn location services on “Always” in order to get real time weather updates.

    seriously, to the minute coverage...
  • Keep coming back to Dark Sky

    I lost count of the number of weather apps I’ve tried in the past few years. Dark sky is by far the best of the lot. Accurate and to the point. Alerts are astoundingly accurate. The ding is complication on watch. A bit wonky. Sometimes matches, most often behind. On would think once called from watch it would update. Nope.... Hope they fix this one. I sent a note last year and Apple was to blame. Bad answer. Figure it out.
  • The best!!

    By HHIChica
    By & far the best & most accurate weather app I’ve ever used & I've used plenty. I live in an area where weather can be erratic & this app has never failed me.
  • Best Weather App

    Good fun app to play around with...love sliding cloud banks up and down on the live map!
  • Disappointed

    By MacBookProMan
    One of the biggest disappointments from the App Store for me. Radar is totally blurry, you can’t zoom in to street level, common cities and towns are left off the map, but you’ve included local “street corner villages” that nobody has heard of. Navigation is clumsy. I might as well have rolled up my four dollars and smoked them.
