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.

  • Demonstrably less good

    By simontarr
    This was a great app, now it’s less functional, buggier and less enjoyable to use. Truly unfortunate redesign.
  • Cool!

    By fdillon82
    Thanks for fixing the data updating when launching and foregrounding the app!
  • Overrated

    By Sonchai
    UPDATE: My default location is now Broadway, New York. Still in CA. UPDATE: My home location keeps defaulting to Michigan. I am in California. It also doesn't predict rain very well, stating it isn't raining when it is. Original: It takes 7-10 seconds to load every time I start the app. More importantly it is inaccurate in the one hing it is supposed to do: Predict rain. Twice in the last week it has been pouring out and the app said that there was no rain currently and that there was a 0% chance of rain that day.
  • Pretty much ruined

    By Suzannica
    I hate the new interface. Why would an app called “Dark Sky” suddenly be completely white? Also, it’s way too busy now. I will keep it installed for a little while to see if they issue a new update addressing some of the new problems. It was a great app in its day.
  • Horrible update.

    By darkskyupdatesucks
    The whole function of this app is to track when it’s about to rain and the duration of it. I work outdoors and have use this app for many years and it’s worked great. I’m at work now and it started to drizzle then rain then heavy rain. Dark sky said NOTHING. Same thing happened with the storm on Tuesday. The update on this app renders it completely useless.
  • Unbelievably accurate

    By Atomicadecay
    I always figured a weather app was just a weather app and I had bounced between a few before stumbling on Dark Sky. Once I did, I stopped bouncing. I was first drawn in by the different layout which I found refreshing, but then I was utterly blown away by the accuracy of the notifications. If I get a notification that it’s going to start raining in 7 minutes, it literally starts raining in 7 minutes. Witchcraft, I say! And so far I’d guess it hits this level of accuracy 95+% of the time...unbelievable. I’ve been a Dark Sky user now for a few years, and my only gripe (and hardly a gripe), is I do kind of prefer the previous icon set that was used in the app.
  • Busy, ugly

    By mkgt3660
    The redesign was a big mistake and I’m sorry I updated the app. The app is now very busy and cheesy (the windmill icon!?). Bring back the horizontal scrolling. Hire a good designer and clean the display back up. I used to recommend this app to friends but would not at present.
  • Loosing a star

    I loved the old dark skies. After using the new version for a bit, I’m dropping from 3 stars to 2. It is VERY hard to read the gray and white temperature bubbles—even on my iPad mini. I don’t want to go search for glasses to check the weather.
  • This isn’t Dark Sky

    By Jason Clark
    Ugly. You had something unique and wonderful, and you just scrapped it all. Just put the old app back on the App Store.
  • Not a fan of the new UI

    By mboninco
    The use of balls on a sliding scale makes it harder to see when it is more likely to rain and by how much. If they used a fixed scale, and put the value in a column, rather than in the ball, it would be much easier to read
