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.

Probably the best radar UI of any app anywhere, but everything else is rather underwhelming. Fortunately for the developer, it doesn't seem to have much competition. It's incredible how awful most weather apps are.

Disappointing App

1
Not worth it. No map. Doesn’t display what’s occurring. Very disappointed!

Less polish than promised.

The widget for this app doesn’t work. It just stays blank. It was my main reason for purchasing.

No responses to e mails. I signed up but had questions.

Great App, but needs an update

This app is great, and works really well. My only gripe is that it looks relatively old compared to much more modern-looking weather apps in general. Other than that it’s a great app!

Great but could use improvement

Great app! It’s spot on with accuracy. The only flaw is it doesn’t show the radar past the hour. Actually i think it’s less than an hour. I wish it showed a few hours into the future like other radar apps do

Too pricy for the amount of bugs

1
The radar loop loads extremely slow, often times the precipitation will warp into crazy directions rendering this app almost useless, the UI also leaves something to be desired. Save your money until the developer takes the app seriously. This is a 99 cent app being sold for $3.99.

Comprehensive, accurate, excellent.
By Trafals

Mostly not accurate anymore

2
When I first started using it the predictions were uncanny in their accuracy. But currently regularly wrong. It has been light rain now for three days but app says only cloudy. Not sure what has happened.
