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.
Not even remotely worth the money. The “Weather channel” app is much more involved, I get way more information from it and it’s FREE. I don’t understand what all the hype is about with this app, it’s terrible.
I purchased this “highly recommended” app primarily for use on my series 3 watch. The NOAA and Weather Channel complications just weren’t staying current. But at least their complications loaded. Dark Sky only works as an app and not a complication. Does not meet my needs. Otherwise, it’s a fine iPhone app but there’s no way I would have paid for it just for that. My other (free) iPhone weather apps were fine.
The radar in this app is lacking. Needs better refresh rates and the ability to future cast at a local level.
Update has been a known failure, there have been no improvements this year, dark sky is long dead. Mournings held every Thursday and Sunday when you’re free.
So... It’s my birthday and we’re at this rooftop bar in Meatpacking (I wouldn’t typically be out in this area, I’m more self-aware than that, but it’s close to where I work, so...) ANYWAY, the app said 9 minutes to rain, so I bet my friend that it would be exactly to-the-minute. I’m a big fan of your very good app, but in this case, you were 5 minutes ahead of schedule and I was embarrassed in front of all my friends. The shame I feel is immeasurable; worse, I was forced to delete your app and write this review as punishment. Someone told me once: mistakes happen— and knowing that it isn’t just an expression stung most of all. In summation; pee is stored in the balls.
It's raining, Dark Sky says 0 chances, the default weather app gives the correct output. Also i don t understand why it needs to always check my location, what if i only want to see it for one city? Why do you access gps every time? Allow me the option to choose.
Headed out the door for a walk at 8:50 because Dark Sky assured me that "light rain" might be around at 11:00. Imagine how disconcerting to hear THUNDER & then being caught in the rain at 9:24...Yep, not only rain but LIGHTNING!
Custom weather notifications is an amazing feature and I wish i could do more with it (Ex. Never rises above/falls below, Stays above/below all day, and the ability to combine them such as wind and rain above 30 -> no umbrella) Also sometimes the app crashes when I click on map, otherwise a great app!
I admit it: I'm a weather app junkie. I've tried probably any and all that are available, free or paid, and I'll always install and try out every shiny new weather gizmo that graces the app store. I'm a bit fickle perhaps, and a sucker for a charming UI. But regardless, after the novelty has worn off these latest and greatest apps, I always end up back with Dark Sky. Dark Sky doesn't seem to mind these occasional dalliances and remains ever present and ready to resume its lauded position on my homescreen. Needless to say, highly recommended. Dark Sky just seems to do it right.
When I first got this app some years ago it was amazing. It provided up to the minute weather. Something has changed. Today is a good example. It has been raining off and on all day and Dark Sky says the precipitation is zero. That is a constant problem now. It is totally unreliable.
