Dark Sky Weather


By jackadam

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Explore weather in the past or future. Choose a date and see historical weather data or future predictions based off of seasonal averages.

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.

Comments and Ratings for Dark Sky Weather

Dark Sky Reivew (5.2.7)

Good clean UI. Global map/ screen is a little clunky, but still useful and informative. Overall very good app. One issue is a bug with the WIDGET that needs to be fixed. Multiple temperatures show in the same field and make it really difficult to determine the CURRENT TEMPERATURE. I hope a fix comes soon, because I like this app over the other two I have used. As a note: I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, and that seemed to have worked for the widget glitch I described above. I figured I would keep this out there for a general tally of this issue for the dev.

Amazing App (5.2.7)

My favorite weather app, hands down.

Complete Garbage (5.2.7)

I constantly receive notifications of false weather conditions. Just got a notification that snow flurries are starting soon yet today is a bright and sunny day. The notifications I receive never even match the weather forecast displayed when I open the app - which correctly forecasted no precipitation for today. Save your money!

Great app, but ... (5.2.7)

I think this is the best weather app on the app market, but the Apple watch complication is kind of useless. It never updates correctly. The fix is to reload the app and cross your fingers. I've done all that multiple times, and it still doesn't update correctly on the watch. Three stars until this issue gets fixed.

Best Weather App (5.2.7)

Tried a number of top rated apps but this best by far. Simple but what you need to know easily accessible. Terrific design.

I love Dark Sky. (5.2.7)

I love this app. I've tried SO many weather apps. This is the most accurate and I love the alerts. BUT, it's soooo plain. I'd love to have the option of having art or photos, even if a small charge.
