Description

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.

Does not on Apple Watch

Please get this fixed so I can delete the crummy free weather app. You have spoiled me.

Oddly bad. Don’t buy

Love in SoCal. Inbuilt iOS weather app is faster and more precise. Freezes, won’t auto update, can’t load data even on fast WiFi. Background app data set to “on” FTW: rained for 25 minutes and never once alerted or stated anything about rain. 🤯

Five to one

Was a five star app. Now after updates watch complications is broken. Doesn’t work. Location is spotty. Please stop adding features that ruin what worked well before.

Does not work on apple watch

I purchased it solely to use on the watch. Basically a waste of $2 for me since it doesn't even launch on the watch.

Update is a bummer

2
The new update came with a changed UI, which I know is a normal change that I could adjust to. But really my main issue with the new update is that it barely works. Dark sky used to launch quickly and show almost instant weather updates, but now it launches slowly, hangs on a blank screen for many seconds, often shows a previous location, and doesn’t update to show changing weather. Odds of precipitation also seem unclear upon first glance and require more sifting. Idk what’s up, but I have pretty much stopped using it and switched to Apple’s native weather app after years of only using Dark Sky. Kind of bummed. Will check in routinely to see if it gets better :(

Very unhappy that I can no longer access dark sky on my Apple Watch. Love the app, but not as helpful without it working on the watch as well. Really hope this changes soon

Recent release doesn’t work on Series 3 Watch

1
Update 2: still no update for this. Have removed it from my watch. I’ll keep checking back for another couple weeks or so, but will request an iTunes/App Store refund after that. ————- Update: hoped today’s update would fix the issue, but nope. Complication on Watch still shows dashes, and clicking to launch the app shows only a blank screen instead of New York City weather. Going in the wrong direction here. ———— I bought this app a couple of weeks ago while looking for a better weather app to show on my Apple Watch face that included sunset times, as I’m frequently trying to get in a late run before dark. I was swayed by reviews and various articles. It seemed to be working well for me - especially liked the “rain starting/ending soon” alerts that were spot on accurate - but with the latest update the app simply doesn’t work anymore on my series 3 watch. And as a watch face complication the only thing that displays are the words Dark Sky and a bunch of dashes. If you click to fully open the app you can only see New York City weather info on your watch. This is even though I’ve re-confirmed that my default cities through the Dark Sky iPhone app are set and correct. The only thing that changed from one day to the next was the app update. I submitted a ticket a couple of days ago but have had no response. If it worked, I’d give it 5 stars.

Love it. Doesn't show on on watch face

Long time user of this app and love it. On the Apple Watch, it doesn't reveal the actual weather details when exposed as a complication, versus as just a linked feature. Hopeful an easily remedied bug as renders useless ok no replacing Apple's own weather app. Please fix!

Add a custom city since it can’t cache your location [still]

Every day, I would have to manually set my town to see a local forecast because the default is NYC, 1,700 miles away. Finally, I added my town. I still only see NYC initially, but I can immediately swipe to useful data now.
