Good weather app

This app is better then most free apps I’ve had or used. My first purchase of a weather app so limited experience there. Worth the price to me

Worthless temp range

1
This app runs a wide range of discrepancy on temperature forecasts, both highs (in summer) and lows (in winter), often by as much as 15*. We have had frost all this week, totally missed by Dark Sky, thanks a lot, and temperatures forecast in the 40’s . It’s been a lousy user experience.

Dead app. Try Hello Weather instead.

Best, most accurate weather app

5
I don’t normally write reviews, but felt compelled to do so for this app. I have been using this for a few years now, and this has been the most accurate weather app that I have ever used. As a baseball coach, several times I was able to play games at the same time that others cancelled due to the forecast. I put 100% faith in this app, and it has never let me down!

Nothing special but sometimes wrong

1
I find the layout confusing to look at and inconvenient. First, it only gives the data for every two hours, while free apps like weather channel gives data hourly. I have to go back and forth between temp and % of precipitation and try to remember between hours- because I need the comparison to know what the rain chances are at what temperatures to decide when to blanket my horse. That is a pain to go back and forth plus scrolling through days. On the overall line for a day, it shows one figure for rain chances, like 15%, then I open the details fir the day, and click % precipitation and all of the hours shown says 0%. Really?? Then why is it 15% overall? Maybe because this app only shows every two hours? The other day, I was leaving the barn and checked to see if it was going to rain at all, and it shows zero chance, and for “now” is showed zero and for the next hour, it showed zero. So I walked outside with my horse and within five minutes it started to rain- not a downpour but a light steady rains. So my small fee for this crappy app is possibly a donation to line someone’s pocket.

still the best

Dark Sky is still the best, most outstanding weather resource on any platform. Though it is nice to see some of its functionality in Apple Weather, this app still offers more. Thank goodness it hasn’t been discontinued.

Needs widget support

I’m surprised that this doesn’t have native widget support since it is now an Apple product.
