App Description

Dark Sky can tell you at a glance exactly when it will rain (or snow) up to an hour in advance, so you’re free to walk the dog or run out to lunch and know you’ll stay dry. You can also explore the most beautiful weather animation you’ve ever seen, both forward in time or back. (Dark Sky is available in the US, UK and Ireland.) YOUR WEATHER, DOWN TO THE MINUTE Using GPS, 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. 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.

  • Was very good, but there are issues

    By Hezmana
    This used to be my favorite weather app. Unfortunately as time has gone on it has become less and less accurate. Today it’s raining, DS shows sunny. Last week I got a rain alert, when there were no clouds within miles and it was hot and sunny. It used to be my go to app, it is now next up to be deleted if I need more space on my ipaf
  • Beautiful Simplicity

    Dark Sky is my favorite weather app. I use a few but this is the one i rely on for warning me if imminent rain. I also like the way the forecasting is laid out.
  • Dark Sky... Lights it up!!!

    By haffieldj
    This is by far... one of the best weather apps I’ve ever used. Very straight forward, simple, great looking and most important... ACCURATE! If you’re looking into getting a new weather app and want something that’s not only extremely accurate, but can take that accuracy with you wherever you go up to the minute of forecast.
  • Hands Down: Best Weather App. Worth Every Dollar

    By Austin Spraggins
    As a local truck driver I need to know when it will rain. This app has been a god send. And the beautiful yet simple interface is great. Very glad I paid the $4. Worth it.
  • Really helpful

    By Daisygirl89
    This app has become a necessity in our daily lives. Changing weather in FL makes it essential to check forecast before traveling. If the sky looks different from the forecast, I’m able to submit that info. It is also handy when traveling out of state where we might not know weather conditions.
  • Awesome overall app

    By Brandon338592813
    This app is very easy to use and very accurate! Also I love the custom notifications! Keep it up! Would like to see a widget for Apple Watch if possible!
  • Great promise, weak execution

    By ZippyQ
    This app is beautiful and it feels like it is offering incredible weather detail. The reality is that the forecast changes minute by minute based on what they’re gathering from current conditions. And for me at least, the app crashes when I open it it is currently raining. Pretty, yes. But I think I’m going back to Apple weather.
  • Accurate

    By SeniorLisa
    In the desert rain is very important. I rely on Dark Sky for this all important information.
  • Crashes on iPhone X

    By Clubluver95
    Crashes upon opening on iPhone X. Please resolve
  • Uh oh

    By Jhatzis99
    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.
