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.

    I keep downloading this app several weeks after having deleted it.. hopeful that improvements will have occurred after the last update. I just tried 6.1.3, and have again deleted the app. The frustration is that it is not accurate and I am not receiving any push notifications of pending rain or snow occurring in the next “x” amount of time etc. Today’s actual weather was light snow all morning, yet the app showed current conditions as foggy or partly cloudy. The temperature was accurate, but the current conditions are just missing the mark. What makes this even more frustrating is that this had never been an issue to this degree in the past. It was for this reason in the past that I enjoyed this app and would recommend it to others. Really a shame.. I can no longer recommend what for me was a 5 star app in the past!

    Why can’t I have notices without allowing location services at all times. It can send me alerts based on the location I have saved. Waste of money.
  • No dark mode.

    I think the previous version had a dark mode. All I can say is that this app is painful to look at in bed. Even with my screen brightness turned all the way down.
  • No Internet Connection

    Usually says that there is no internet connection. Tapping button to retry then brings up page. Gadget also doesn't display info.
  • New UI awful

    If your looking for an app that tells you exactly what the weather is at the exact moment, then DarkSky is the app for you. If you need a weather app to plan for the day or a weekend, look else where. The hype around this app is absurd. I enjoyed it at first. Then time after time, I was left unprepared for the weather. We had a snowstorm in NYC yesterday but DarkSky didn’t agree. Even as the snow started falling, the app still said rain.
  • Can’t even get the current weather right.

    I thought reporting the current weather was the easy part of meteorology. I guess not. Dark Sky often reports clear and sunny when it’s pouring rain. And vice versa. As for the future weather, Dark Sky often contradicts all the other forecasts I read. Guess who turns out to be right? Not Dark Sky. The math on precip doesn’t add up. For example, today’s forecast has a 3-4% chance of precip over 6 hours. That should yield about a 22% chance for the day overall: 1 - 0.96^6 = 0.22. But today’s combined chance is 73%. Now I have no idea whether I need an umbrella.* All these issues happen way too often for me to use Dark Sky. *Hi math people. I’m assuming each hour is independent. But that assumption favors Dark Sky. Were the opposite true, we’d have to discount the chance of rain even further—making Dark Sky even wronger.

    You’ve taken a great app and killed it. It’s been weeks since the new design was released, yet massive bugs exist. The bugs must be addressed ASAP, or I’ll uninstall!
