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.
It’s just the best weather app out there hands down, but I live in Erbil/Iraq and it always says no radar coverage, please fix that.
This App predicts weather an hour in advance which is great if you’re out walking. I always know when to take an umbrella that’s to this app.
Is it me or is this always wrong? Dark sky always contradicts Apple Weather. And Apple Weather is usually Correct. It’s literally Snowing in my face and dark Sky states clear. Apple weather says snowing. I’ve now been testing this app for over a year and finally just giving up. Goodbye dark sky. I won’t miss you. And maybe now I’ll be ready for the weather. Update: tried it again. And again wrong. Dark sky snow at 2-3p around my house. Apple said starts at 5am. Low and behold it’s snowing since 5am. Dark sky says it’s not snowing right now. But it is dark sky. It frickin is.
UPDATE: Still can’t stand the “strung-out beads” look of the UI. Terrible design compared to “classic” version. PREVIOUSLY: The “string of beads” display for temperature, precipitation chances, etc., readings is terrible: where once it was possible to take everything in at a glance, one now has to find the correct time then read across to obtain the measure. A huge step backwards from the original UI. There are other issues, but that’s the most prominent for me. Absent a total reversion to the original UI, I would suggest allowing users to reorder the weather tabs (precipitation %, temps, etc) so the ones we refer to most often could be immediately at-hand. I paid for the premium version before the downgrade, and would be demanding a refund if it had cost me more than a few bucks. I now very rarely use this app as I can’t hardly stand looking at it, but do check it after updates (hoping for a reversion) and sometimes compare its readings with AccuWeather’s, which is now my primary weather application.
I use this convenient app all the time.
I used to live by this app for rain to predict outdoor photography sessions. Lately it has been absolutely inaccurate regarding rain and snow predictions. Bummer, as I I just finally got used to understanding and navigating the recent design overhaul. Thanks for the year or two that you created the perfect weather app! Sad to have to find something else. Save your $$!
Decent hourly temperatures, but not every hour shown. Maps are awful, radar is weird colors. Temperature map is color coded with no values shown, pretty useless. Only thing this app has going for it is that it isn’t clunky with ads like wunderground is since weather.com ruined everything good about it.
Thank you so much!
