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.

  • No longer good

    I got this app because of the good reviews and once I had it on my phone it worked for a good while and now it doesn’t load. It’s gives you alerts when it raining and that’s it, and no it just terrible and I remove it from my phone. Another weather app that doesn’t work!
  • Uh oh

    *update* no longer loads on my series 4 watch. Please fix!! Love this app, but now crashes on my new iPhone X. Unusable as is. Please fix soon or I’d actually have to look out window to check the weather.
  • Consistently incorrect weather

    Dark Sky has rarely been right about the weather here whenever there’s precipitation. For example, last week it predicted 6” snow in the area. We ended up with no snow, and only light rain. In fact, no city anywhere near us experienced snow. Other times it has predicted days of rain only to get put off day by day until eventually no rain ever shows. Weather Channel has predicted our weather consistently right, and it’s been glaringly obvious how opposite the two forecasts have been. This last storm was the last straw. When WC is telling us only light rain, and Dark Sky is telling us blizzard, it was time to delete the app after proving itself wrong yet again. It doesn’t matter how cool the features are - this company is unable to accurately predict the weather. You had one job.
  • No longer great!

    The app was great but now it is plain. Gone is the hourly rain forecast graph, which was the best feature. Now it is only text with a mediocre 24 hour outlook. No longer different but rather a plain normal weather app. Maybe it is more appealing to the masses but it is less appealing to those who liked the detailed hour chart and the fresh new look.
  • Temperature is always off 5 degrees

    Temperature seems to be off 5 degrees. It shows the correct location, but the temperature is not accurate.
  • Good notifications for rain

    Love the notifications for rain! Would like to see the Apple Watch complication with the actual temperature instead of a weather condition icon.
  • Okay

    The app is the exact opposite of accurate!
  • Crazy forecasts!

    How can the forecast go from 5-8” of snow, to 10-12” to 12-15” then back down to 8-10” and finally back down to 3-6” all within 24 hours! How can that be trusted as “the best weather app” it can’t. I now just use it as a guess as to what may happen in 4-5 days. There was just another forecast that showed 3-7” of snow in northern WI. That was up for a couple days. Now this morning it’s down to less than an inch. Sorry, but this app has become useless! I will be removing it from my phone.
  • So far so good

    I like it
  • Search is awful

    It blows my mind after so many years how the search functionality is STILL so bad. When you type something the results appear above the fold (hidden) so you can’t see them unless you scroll up.
