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.

  • Hourly weather can be inaccurate at times

    By Owewwwww
    Sometimes the hourly weather is completely off, it is actually what led me to write this just now. Hourly said clear skies and a 0% probability of precipitation, yet outside it was overcast and the radar shows storm coming in. It even said “Severe Thunderstorm Warning” for my area on the app. Sure enough, just a few minutes later it started pouring and the hourly still showed the same report. I decided to write this because this isn’t the first time I’ve experienced this issue.
  • Disappointed

    By sggxbjjfxbji
    Dark sky was a great app!!! But I can hardly use it... never opens when I want to see the weather. I definitely will NOT renew my subscription
  • Loved it until the accuracy tanked

    By Dts94
    I loved this app, however recently the accuracy has been absolutely abysmal. Right now there is 100% chance of thunderstorms at in 2-3 hours (according to NOAA, 3 other weather apps, and radar)... Dark Sky shows no indication that it is going to rain or thunder. I absolutely cannot rely on this app anymore. Which is unfortunate because I had deleted all my other weather apps. However now I have re-downloaded and will not be using this app until they figure out what is wrong with their forecasting.
  • Great, but...

    By Jstew96
    I love Dark Sky. I never thought I'd buy a weather app, but it was well worth the price. The minute by minute forecasts are helpful and the interface is overall really beautiful. I have a few minor improvements I'd love to see though. First I'd love if the "Next 24 Hours" forecast went in hourly increments. A lot can happen in two hours. Second, I fumble on the temp, precipitation, etc. toggle switches. I feel like they're too small and could benefit from a larger target area. Keep up the good work.
  • Useless

    By Yevo119
    This app is such bs - shows it’s going to be 80 then within a minutes changes to show it actually going to be 70 instead Weather app is better don’t even waste money
  • Awful at forecast

    By chm12346335643
    This app has been extremely off the mark when predicting rain. It is no better than the iPhone “weather” app with a few extras bells and whistles.
  • USED TO BE a great app.

    By Bullwyzr
    This USED TO BE a great weather app. I have been using Dark Sky for several years, it used to be extremely accurate for hourly forecast. No longer has ANY accuracy in their daily forecast. I am a general contractor that relies on accurate forecast for project planning on a daily basis. It cannot forecast rain 20 minutes out. Hourly forecast is rarely ever accurate on a daily basis. This used to be accurate down to the minute now you cannot trust it at all. A Weather app that cannot predict the weather for the next four hours is absolutely worthless. It is not wrong occasionally, it is only correct occasionally. Daily accuracy of the forecast is below 20%. Do NOT recommend. The only good thing about this app is the radar. That is all I keep it for as I can predict the weather better by looking at the radar image myself then trusting what their hourly forecast is.
  • Not the app it used to be

    By LB in Chicago
    This app has been changed significantly from its glory years. Complete redesign means it’s not the app I paid for. Disappointing to say the least.
  • Best Weather App I’ve Used

    By Kariboulou21
    This app is spot on for my location, at least. It has it down to the T and notifies me when its raining, snowing, and when any other weather related issues are going on. It also notifies me when its stopping, which is helpful when you spend 8+ hours per day inside at work and have to try and predict whether to bring an umbrella or not. Great app!
  • Kills battery and privacy

    By Jedt
    Requiring an app to use location services always is ridiculous. Without using the ‘always’ setting on location services the app does not function correctly. This is a privacy and battery issue. This would be a good app if it wasn’t required to use location services always.
