Dark Sky Weather App 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.

  • Excellent WatchOS integration

    I would like to see the “feels like” temp on the watch face instead of the actual temp. On my watch, I really don’t care what the actual temperature is outside, I’m more concerned about “feels like” temp for my outside activities.
  • Still... reports as foggy every day.

    It can be a bright, blistering sunny day. And it’ll tell you it’s foggy out. Fix the bug!
  • Not worth paying

    This app has been wrong by the hour so many times for me already that it’s clear the accuracy just isn’t there. I’m writing this after I was told light rain for 2-3 more hours in my exact location only to be hit with a downpour the moment I stepped outside. Weather science just isn’t there yet so this app will give you a false sense of precision.
  • Not all that accurate

    After using this app for a few months in different parts of US, I’ve come to the conclusion that it is 5 stars on graphics and 2 or 3 in accuracy in the short range hourly forecasts. Too many false flags regarding precipitation.
  • Inaccurate temperature

    I paid for this app because I thought that it would be reliable. But I find that it says it’s cloudy when it’s clear and the temperature is consistently off 5° to 7°. My local weather does a much better job even though it’s not exactly suited to my location.
  • Classic example of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”

    Was best weather app, now worst. Why oh why did you ruin the very best app I have ever bought. I used to recommend it to others daily. That stopped with the crappy update. Font too small Monochromatic Not enough “at a glance” data The circles to the right are horrible Requires too much interaction to get the day info. Unreadable. I am not alone in my assessment. Dark Sky doesn’t care. In short - you are better off going back to the old version. It was perfect. Now I am uninstalling. Shame.
  • Limited Information

    This app offers only limited information. What is shown in the screen caps is about all you get. WeatherBug has its issues, so I wanted an app that offered the same features without all the tracking. This is not it. No rain/snow indication in the maps, no traffic cams, no sunrise/sunset times, so many things need added before this is a useful weather app.
  • Terrible maps

    I want to point out the defects of the maps. There are no any city names except seoul in Korea. In addition lot of village names beginning a are appeared. Can't find any city names. It's different from other countries. Fast corrections are needed.
  • Good App Except Requires “always” Location Access.

    I do not want apps that constantly track my location. Why can the app not be programmed to set for alerts for cities, rather than only my current location?
  • Not as good as it once was

    Dark Sky used to be a beautiful app that did a scarily good job of telling me when it was going to rain. Now, it’s a convoluted mess that has contradicting data points and summaries and does a very poor job of telling me when it is going to rain. I originally bought this app because it did one thing and one thing very well. I didn’t want a full featured weather app. I just wanted to know if it is going to rain. Now I’m never sure :(
