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.
I live in San Francisco and Used this app daily for about 6 months. I feel this app did not perform any better than the weather app and was about as accurate on temperature and precipitation.
The app is great. Really like the features. However, I wish there was a way to differentiate on the radar if it is snow/rain/ice. Living in an area where all three are possible within an hour it would be helpful to know exactly what is coming.
The application may be accurate but the interface is really not eye pleasing. Dull, boring, 🤮. Maps are blurs not something you can really hone in on. Again, weak interface. No lighting tracking? Almost every other application has this. If it’s so great and up to date this should be part of the program. This is a must for me. Deleted.
Layout is really basic. Too many clicks needed to see anything other than temp and each one is separate. How about showing a few things together so I don’t have click separately to see temp, feels like temp, precip chance, wind speed, dew point ... and so on. Don’t understand the great reviews and feel like I wasted a few bucks.
My initial review of Dark Sky was only 1 star, and it truly deserved it with never getting correct the rain notifications correct, it never got my address correct (always displayed my address as any one of five neighbors' addresses), and almost non-existent customer support. Most of this has changed for the better. Now, when Dark Sky says it's going to rain I usually make sure I'm not outside as it's more likely correct than not. Also, it displays my actual address about 90% of the time now...huge improvement. And they've made some huge improvements to the app over the past few years, most importantly you can now easily center the radar map on your current location. Customer support is still very, very slow...but thankfully, you won't need it very often as the app basically works well.
Iv been using Dark Sky as my main weather app since it was released on iOS years ago. Since then the developers have only improved upon this wonderful app. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to getting an Apple Watch and this will def. be on it.
I have enjoyed dark sky, great app
Used to love this app, but then the radar wouldn’t load all the way or even at all. Hate I paid for it and it doesn’t work 🙄
At some point when this first launched it was great. It has become the most inaccurate weather app ever. I am watching the snow fall now and my thermometer says 26 degrees while Dark Sky says it’s 32 and raining. This has been the case for the last 6 months.
Love the app! I use it almost every day and especially like the hour by hour wind direction forecast.
