Description

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.

  • GPS...

    It’s a good APP. But Y in the hell is there no way to get back to GPS/UR location on “planet view” if you move off of it when U CK a different location? Or am I missing something? I have to add UR claim of when it’ll “precipitate”/rain/snow accurately much less where we’re standing is total BS. Y would U make nonsensical claims which are IMPOSSIBLE to predict? Unless we live in Death Valley where even I can tell U it’ll be scalding hot...& sunny. Where I reside NO ONE not even God himself can predict from minute to minute. Great APP but false claims prevail.
  • Terrible on Apple Watch s3

    I primarily use this for the Apple Watch complication. For this purpose, this app is worthless. In my two weeks of use, a third of the time it displays only dashes, the remainder of the time I get temp, hi/lo, sunrise/sunset. Except the temp updates rarely and is inaccurate. The first day or two the complication would tell me about upcoming changes, but that stopped. The app doesn’t work on my Apple Watch and I can’t recommend it.
  • One of the best weather apps for the price

    I love this app and it saves you when it says it’s going to rain today. I just wish an app called “dark sky” had a dark mode.
  • Best weather prediction app.

    Dark Sky has saved me many times from avoiding a down pour to determining if it’s safe to complete my round of golf. Worth every penny. I use it daily.
  • Used to love it.

    Used to be great, but something happened a few months back and misses rain/snow forecasts.
  • Getting progressively worse

    The forecast are getting progressively more inaccurate. Notifications don’t show up half the time and it’s all very inconsistent. Used to be better imo.
  • Missing functions

    A friend of mine convinced me to get dark sky and I loved what he showed me. The accuracy is so much better than other weather apps and the radar globe is better than anything I’ve seen. However when I purchased the app for some reason I don’t have the same functionality that he has. Mine only goes 7 days out and he has multiple tabs for more uses along the bottom that I don’t have. Same app, but not the same features. Otherwise my rating would be higher.
  • Apple Watch temp update delay

    Since the last update my Apple Watch complication does seem to update the temp unless I click on it to open the app on my phone. Disappointing because that is why I switched from yahoo weather which was free already. Today (4/17/2018) my watch is showing a rain drop/lighting bolt and 0% chance for rain.
  • More accurate than the tv weather!

    I've used Dark Sky for a few years and have discovered it to be more accurate than the tv weather person, on all channels including the Weather Channel. The severe weather alerts when needed sound at least 15-20 minutes before the NWS or NOAA sends them out. I've never had any problems with this app and I would highly recommend it.
  • Used to be the best. Now we never get accurate info.
