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.



  • Totally worth the money

    By iphonemikemike
    The default weather app and the yahoo app are okay for weather forecasts at a glance, but they don’t provide any details, making it hard to anticipate and plan around changing weather. There are other free options, but the interfaces are clunky, confusing, or downright unstable. The dark sky app, on the other hand, is the total package. It has all the details you need packaged in an intuitive and aesthetically pleasing interface!
  • Best weather app

    By tiredtridude
    It’s got a great interface and very accurate. Love having the notifications when weather is turning nasty. A+
  • Best weather app

    By LordShakku
    Its the only one that is usable in terms of UI. Very minimal clutter in app. Has the best predictions. Location feature always works. Totally worth the 3 bucks
  • Superb

    By Jon Elmer
    This is hands down the best weather app available on the app store. I was skeptical for months on whether I should pay for a weather app or not, and I finally made the decision to try it out. It just works. It pin points your location down to street address – significantly improving accuracy. It tells you how many minutes are left before rain starts. And they are able to accurately precise when rain is coming. This is crucial for me, since I live in an area where rain is the order of the day. And Dark Sky has done what no other weather app has been able to do. Gorgeous graphics, easy-to-use User Interface, and magnificent accuracy.
  • Keeps crashing

    By GamerBoredom
    App keeps crashing if I add an alert for snow greater than 0” in addition to my daily summary and rain alert. Has been an issue for a while and I’ve sent this issue in the past.
  • Can’t find a weather app that stays updated on watch Face

    By dwelldeep
    No matter what app I use, and this one is informative and good, they all get stuck displaying weather on my Apple Watch. It will be accurate for a day and then stay stuck on that weather for days on end until I activate and deactivate it through the watch app on my phone. If you’re looking for a weather option for Apple Watch, I’m just not sure there’s a functional choice available.
  • Some bugs I’ve noticed recently

    By Knmacneil
    The widget will sometimes be unresponsive, or won’t load the weather at all. Try to tap on it and it won’t open the app. Have to go to it manually. Also, the app won’t always update the weather when I switch from different locations (eg went from Buffalo’s forecast to Tel Aviv, and it listed Tel Aviv’s weather as being in the mid-20s (Fahrenheit) when it’s actually in the mid-50s). These have all been happening frequently enough that I had to download a different app for weather. Please update soon.
  • Finally A Straight To The Point Weather App

    By prestoj
    All the weather information you need without having to wait for ads, bro fail and cat videos to download. You see what you need to see and it comes up quickly. Couldn’t be more pleased.
  • Couple Things

    By R . D . L
    Great app, but needs: - Dark Mode - Landscape View - Location list from Force Touch menu
  • Most accurate weather predictor

    By leafsounds
    Most accurate and timely weather app I’ve seen. Best feature: it follows your exact location and tells you what the weather is like where you are standing right now. Great for following wind conditions when you’re sailing on the lake or when the next rainfall is expected if you’re climbing a rock wall! You can adjust settings so that you will be alerted when certain conditions are expected to start soon. Love it!
