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.

Best I’ve used so far

Everything a weather bug needs.

NOT ACCURATE

1
I love the way this app is built and the detail it provide. But it is very inaccurate over and over again. For example: I will receive the morning weather forecast and it states that where I’m at it will be 115 degrees that day. But when the day is over the actual temperature for the day only reaches 103 degrees. That’s a huge difference. This happens over and over again on hot days. When the weather is in the 70’s is seem to be more accurate. Shouldn’t a weather app at least predict the temp accurately?

The best weather app, hands down

5
No other app comes close to Dark Sky's accuracy. It's one of, like, three apps I've actually paid for and it's been worth every penny. I've told my family and friends and many have converted too. Love getting the "rain's about to start" on my Apple watch, too.

Radar is very bad

2
The app is pretty good, it’s not the best though. For me it doesn’t seem to predict the weather any better than other free apps. And the radar is terrible. I use a free app from my local weather station for radar. The radar in this app doesn’t load, so you have to quit and re-open the app to get it to update to the current radar. It’s slow and glitchy. When you pan on the map or zoom in or out it takes forever to load. This is on 200mbps WiFi, so I know it’s the app being glitchy. Ultimately it’s not worth the money.

Accuracy

5
Out of all the weather apps I have tried, Dark Skies is always perfectly accurate to the minute. I strongly suggest if you want down to the minute weather get Dark Skies.

Not much information is shown

I suspect they paid money for the praising articles on the Verge etc.

Innacurate data

3
I bought the app because of its good reviews but it was a mistake. It may be slightly more accurate than the stock Weather app but still far from actually accurate. I'm getting notifications for rain to stop while it never rained to begin with... Or the opposite. What's the point of these down to the minute forecasts when they are so inaccurate?

Nothing special

I don’t get it. Its nothing special. I paid for it but it’s a big disappointment. Im going to delete it.

Best weather app you will ever use

5
I purchased DarkSky years ago and have been impressed by how hassle free the user experience is. I now it is reliable, accurate and has a minimalist design that delivers the weather forecast I need. Best few bucks I’ve ever spent in the app store. Period.
