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.
Woke up to driving snow. Dark sky says heavy rain. It has been pinging me with alerts over the last two weeks about "0 accumulation" snow events but in the lead up to this storm, nothing (and even said it was raining long after the snow started). I'm now going back to apps that don't promise minute by minute precision but at least get the forecast right.
I’ve changed units to celsius in the app, but widget is still in fahrenheit.
What a shame! This app was one of my favorites for years and recommended it to everyone. It still provides the info you need but in a less intuitive and worse UI. Classic case of designing to death. Please go back to the old one and keep the new functionality (or at least offer the “classic” view).
Needs dark theme or option to be able to go back to old ui. Font too small.
... however there’s no dark mode?
This app is not functional in a mountainside urban area. Hope they have integrity enough to refund, uninstalling as one hour was enough to discover and totally discouraged at the claims made. The concept and the reality in difficult terrain do not mesh. It is probably a good app for most; however there are exceptions, this is one. A mountain area heavily developed is not the place for this app. Slant
It’s too darn bright! Please, please, PLEASE add Dark Mode!!!
What a bummer. I purchased this app only for the next hour prediction feature , unfortunately it’s not available in any city that I live in or I plan to visit.
I’m not sure where Dark Sky is getting its weather data for the Seattle area, but it’s not from Seattle. The temperatures and forecasts have been way off, sometimes 10-15 degrees lower with near term predictions of snow and ice. The app is essentially useless for me. Tried to contact support several times never received a response. So if you’re willing to roll the dice and see if the forecast data you receive is actually for your area have at it. If the developers happen to read this, you deserve the poor review for poor customer service.
I agree with some of the reviewers that are a bit nostalgic towards the previous design. I have installed it just because of the design and simplicity. Now it looks more like every other weather app out there that is overloaded with bunch of kids drawn style icons. Design design design. I miss that, thus a 4 star review.
