Support for the Dark Sky app will be ending on January 1st, 2023. Dark Sky's forecast technology will be integrated into the Apple Weather app with iOS 16 this fall.
Dark Sky offers 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.)
YOUR WEATHER, DOWN TO THE MINUTE
Dark Sky delivers forecasts for your precise location, giving you minute-by-minute predictions for the next hour and hour-by-hour forecasts for the next week.
BEAUTIFUL WEATHER ANIMATIONS
The same technology that powers Dark Sky’s predictions also allows us to make beautifully smooth radar animations. These animations show you the path of the storm, including how it moved up to now and where it’s going next.
Dark Sky comes with advanced notification options. Receive up-to-the-minute alerts before it starts raining at your exact location, get notified of severe weather alerts (for events such as thunderstorms, flooding, hurricanes etc.) or even create your own custom notifications covering the next 24 hours for things such as temperature, wind, precipitation and more. Dark Sky will tell you what you need to know, when you need to know it.
The Dark Sky widget tells you at a glance what’s going to happen in the next hour or the next week, so you don’t even have to unlock your phone to quickly check the weather before going out.
Explore weather in the past or future. Choose a date and see historical weather data or future predictions based on seasonal averages.
Dark Sky looks great on your wrist. Get notifications and view the weather for the next week with the Dark Sky app built for Apple Watch.
Dark Sky is available in the US, UK and Ireland.

Ratings and Reviews
Finally, a weather app that’s focused on weather
I tried at least a dozen weather apps after Weather Underground took a turn for the worse and destroyed their app with a horrible update. Most of them were little more than advertising platforms with a little weather thrown in for effect, or they required onerous subscriptions to make the ads go away. Even without the ads too many of the apps were bizarre one-off user interface experiments gone horribly wrong. Then I gave Dark Sky a look and immediately recognized how intuitive and straight to-the-point the app was for delivering weather information. I like it. Money well spent.
The only nit I’ve discovered so far is that the daily summary notification on my iOS 13 devices is not based on my actual location but some other location, either one that I was in the day prior or the location of my ISP or some other nearby location. Not sure whether it’s an iOS 13 issue because everything seems to work fine with iOS 12. I have location always enabled for Dark Sky on all of my devices. I suppose I could tell Dark Sky to always present the daily summary for a specific location, but that would not help me if I’m traveling. In any case, I think something funky is going on between Dark Sky and Location services on iOS 13.
Hands Down best weather app
I don’t write reviews a lot but this one is soo good I had to. Let’s start off by saying it is worth paying 3.99 dollars on this one the first thing that made me get this app is the accuracy it’s 80 to 85 percent accurate Number 2 is the design I like that there’s a simple but intuitive chart that covers the next 24 hours and I thought it was per 2 hours and going to be a minus but before when I did not have the app yet you made an update where if you press the next 24 hours graph each hour will appear that’s very cool Number 3 Reason is the the layout I like that it’s not cluttered and very readable Last Reason is there are no adds and protects your privacy which is #1 Reason why I got this app. Thank you 😀 and I hope you don’t take off the features while still improving the app. I forgot to mention the maps, notifications, and reporting the weather. The maps are there for you to understand the current weather other maps confuse you all the time. The Notifications are extremely helpful as no weather will catch you off guard I got notified of today’s forecast as I enabled notifications it said possible drizzle this evening which I like. The Report feature is cool because you make the accurate forecasts even better. Thank you again 😀😀
Beautiful, intuitive, accurate
This weather app is so well thought out. The graphics aren’t cutsie, they help you intuitively understand how the weather will change throughout the day and week. ) throughout the day. Great for visualizing the day/week. I don’t know of another app that is so intuitive this way. -Can see predicted Feels Like temps over the course of the day and week too! Super helpful for planning around very cold or hot days. I don’t know of another app that has Feels Like predictions with such granularity. I love it. -Instead of just knowing the % chance of rain, you can see expected quantity too. E.g. I may know there is a 40% chance of rain at 7:00, but I can also see it’s only going to be 0.1 inches, so I don’t need to wear special gear. -Can really easily look back in time—How much rain did we get overnight? Or how hot/cold did it actually get yesterday? Most apps that I’m aware of don’t even show past data! What I don’t love: -Maps matter most when planning travel around heavy precipitation. But in this app, the map mostly shows past data, and only about 30 min of predictions. The maps should only show about 30 min of past data, and then 2-6 hrs of predictions.
