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 get a warning that’s it’s about to rain 10 minutes into a rain storm. This app used to be good and reliable. Times have changed. Hopefully Apple makes it better again. Make DarkSky Great Again
The world maps and the Time Machine feature are great!
Can never forecast rain until it’s 1min away. Awesome.
I’m a weather buff and have tried and still use many weather apps. I prefer this for its accuracy and convenient navigation..everything at your fingertips..temp., what it “feels” like, dew point, precipitation and cloud cover percentage, wind speed, wind gust levels, UV index etc... Only wish the radar was a little better... Highly recommend!!!
This was a disappointment. I heard good reviews but this app does not really give you a lot of info. Maybe it works better in the US. Weatherpro is still my favorite app
This app was 5 stars for years. The past couple months it’s been off. Also, stop showing me radar for the past few hours, that does me no good. How about a radar that displays the future forecast..
Dark sky used to provide accurate weather predictions at least for next 6-8hours. Off late it’s all wrong , I have reported rain in my area when the app shows it’s sunny . Time to relook at the weather model .
Wish the data they based their predictions on was as good as the interface. After a few months of relying on DS I downloaded the competition and started to compare. Needless to say I don’t use DS anymore. Not reliable. 3 stars for the GUI.
Used to be more accurate for my area. States it’s raining when it isn’t. States it’s going to rain in 30 minutes, when already raining. Forecast prediction for days has shaded areas where something may happen and usually doesn’t. I used to love this app.
I’m not into making long reviews, but everything is excellent!! (Except the radar) I want to see farther in the future with the radar but it doesn’t go anywhere past an hour... Everything else is spot on though!
