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.

Being able to track atmospheric pressure to the nearest millibar sounds impressive and all, but sometimes you just want to know if it’s going to rain. Dark Sky tells you exactly how much precipitation to expect and when to expect it, as well as offering cool customizable weather alerts and a mesmerizing time-lapse view of local cloud movements that’s almost as much fun as splashing in puddles.

Keep recommending this to my friends and family, thought I should write a review

There are very few apps that I actually feel improve my life and I have such high quality and thoughtfulness that I actively recommend them to people. Dark Sky is one of those. In addition to as much accuracy as you can get, it provides hourly predictions, ‘feels like’ options for things like windchill, and one particular feature which actually might have saved my health once or twice: UV Index. I had never even heard of that before but I get sunstroke allllll the time and that feature is fabulous. The hourly precipitation prediction is both attractive and insanely useful in places like New York, allowing you to time a mad dash during a lull in the storm. This app has features that no other application for tracking the weather has: it’s in my top five apps that I use and I use it every day. It works just as accurately in every country that I go to and every state that I go to, all with different types of weather challenges. I just love it. Please keep up the good work, its truly a rare product of worth and quality, like lace, or a pocket watch. Weird analogies but hopefully they get the point across: this app shows craftsmanship, not commercialism.

I was so hopeful

I have tried about five different weather apps and was so hopeful this would be the last I ever used but sadly it is not what was promised. There is no daily forecast summary, only a VERY brief summary of the week to come. I would like to see a forecast of what to expect for the day or days to come, something like “cloudy today, very humid, chance of thunderstorms this afternoon”, not one forecast summary for the entire week.
The hourly forecast does not appear to be in sync with the precipitation expectation for the day. For example, it is 6:30am right now and today’s chance for rain is 68% but the hourly chance for rain is less than 10% all day until 5pm where it goes to 13%, 7pm 27%, 9pm 36%, then back down after that. Those numbers certainly aren’t consistent with a 68% chance of rain for today and the highest chance for rain isn’t even until technically tonight.
Plus, this hourly forecast changes based on the weather which makes sense but yesterday the hourly forecast showed less than 10% chance for rain UNTIL it had already started sprinkling and then the chance went up after it had started raining. Come on, guys.
And please, consider a daily forecast that is a short summary of all the different parts of the app instead of having to check the radar and pressure and play meteorologist myself.
