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.

Dark Sky Weather App Reviews

  • I don’t know what happened

    By LindyKing
    I’ve loved this app for years. Then Apple bought it and the temperatures are so ridiculously off it’s not usable. We’ve been having a heat wave for days — in the 90s — and the app says 74 every day.
  • Temp wrong

    By sleepy hollow lady
    Temp shown in the app is consistently lower than the actual temp by 6 to 8 degrees
  • Beautiful app until Apple destroyed it

    By Marriott Time-waster
    Borked all of the granularity (along with the desktop website), forecasts increasingly unreliable. Great work people, congrats all around.
  • This is an awesome app

    By mkd1970
    Good app
  • Great app overall!!

    By Drake Hebert
    This app is awesome to use to see if and when and how much it will rain. Love the convenience of when it’s raining, it shows if you have heavy rain for the next few hours or so. Overall, a really great app.
  • Something wrong but not surprised

    By Gadegt fever
    This weather forecast app is no longer accurate as it was. My friend told me that is because DS relies big on users to report their local weather conditions. Since Apple acquired DS, tons of Android users abandon this app causing the less accuracy of the forecast. It’s unfair to say this is a piece of jxnk because you have to pay $3.99 to download it.
  • Overall, I like it.

    By Abduct35
    My only criticism is that sometimes the maps don’t seem all that reliable. I’ll be tracking an approaching front and sometimes it will disappear or shift position. There isn’t always a smooth progression as it moves.
  • Bug

    By davyjones1964
    My map doesn’t render anymore and I have the newest version of the app
  • Reporting light rain during clear weather.

    By Wattgate
    The reviews make this app sound like the best thing since, well, you know... I downloaded it, fired it up and instantly it was incorrect: it stated that there’s ”Light Rain” (complete with umbrella icon) and yet yesterday evening there wasn’t a single wisp of a cloud in the sky; in fact it was extremely clear, and now, this morning, it’s slightly cloudy (verging on clear) and again it states “Light Rain”. Is this app based on actual meteorological data or what your neighbor decides to report in the app? A sort of Waves for weather? Either way, I’m not sure what all the hype is about. Promptly deleted.
  • No longer accurate in Dallas, TX

    By JCollier93
    I’ve been a loyal user for years, but over the past month or so it’s consistently been wrong. I used to love showing off it’s crazy accuracy to my friends, but now I’m afraid to even use it when my wife asks if it’s supposed to rain today. Now every time I use it, I cross reference it with weather.com and it’s completely wrong every single time. Even the radar struggles to show me any sort of real-time coverage. Very disappointed by what used to be my absolute favorite app!
