Dark Sky is the most accurate source of hyperlocal weather information. With down-to-the-minute forecasts, you’ll know exactly when the rain will start or stop, right where you’re standing. (It’s like magic.) Featured in: New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, Wired, and more. YOUR WEATHER, DOWN TO THE MINUTE 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. TIME MACHINE Explore weather in the past or future. Choose a date and see historical weather data or future predictions based off of seasonal averages. 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.
Very nice to have a weather app that is up Dated so easy. Very easy to read & lots of useful information. Thank You
I decided to try out the app after reading many positive reviews and raves it has received and seeing their API used on Bim360 and a building management system. After trying it out for about a week, I have to say its a very interesting app but its missing some things. One major complaint I have is the fact that Government Issued Warnings and Severe Weather push notifications don’t work unless I put the app settings to Always use location services. With Weather Channel and AccuWeather apps, I receive weather push notifications when the location service settings are on “Only While Using”. Also, occasionally I get a random notification for a location I have been to several days back but am not there anymore. Another thing I would like to see is icons (or Skycons as you like to call it) for other common weather conditions like thunderstorms and hail. The only icons I see is different degrees of cloudiness, rain, or snow. I believe the accuracy can use some work too. Though the location pinpoint is very good. I think its a promising app though I use it to compliment my TWC and AccuWeather apps as these two are better at giving details and minor alerts like small craft advisories and gale warnings. But Dark Sky makes a nice precipitation notifier.
Worth every penny.
When I bought the app I expect many great things and yeah the template the awesome map of rain , but after days I shocked that I found the temperature map but it’s kinda racist that it doesn’t work on the other side of the world only on USA 🇺🇸!!?
Really sad to see that this app has gone down the toilet. Not accurate at all.
Initially, this was by far the most reliable of my 4 weather apps. At the present, I’m watching snow flurries fly in my area. The 3 other apps have a radar which depicts the current situation. Dark Dky? It’s clear as can be. Please update the radar. Thanks, Concerned User
“Rain stops in 10 mins and starts in 55 mins” ... This level of forecasting helped me sneak out for a quick run and on most days still stay dry. Awesome work DarkSky team!
I've had this app for a couple of months. It has been pretty reliable until recently. The forecast has been disappointing to say the least and when planning my day it has caused more headaches. Today for example 2/18/19 the forecast showed no precipitation. I see the dark sky (pun intended) and look at the app. It says Zero chance or rain. No more than 5 minutes later it's pouring. I open my app and viola it shows that it is raining. Very frustrating and I hope this is something that is addressed soon in updates.
I’m not happy with this app at all.The Accweather app which is better and free puts this app to shame.
I'm not sure what service(s) Dark Sky uses for it's weather forecasting, but since fall 2018 (winter 18/19 in particular), forecasts have been horrible. I constantly get alerts for rain within the hour, only to get a light drizzle five hours later. Or zero rain in the forecast, only to get an afternoon of showers. As I type this, Dark Sky is reporting rain. It's completely dry with a few sunny clouds in the sky. AccuWeather has been correct every time I've compared apps. Installed AccuWeather. Giving it the rest of Feb to decide, but unless something changes I'm putting this app in the delete me folder.
