Partly Sunny now supports iOS 13 system dark mode in the app, widget, and Siri Shortcuts. The widget and Siri Shortcuts will automatically match the system dark mode setting. To have the app match…
If you’re on iOS 13, in Settings > Dark Mode, there’s a new option to match the app’s dark mode to the system setting. If you don’t want to use the system setting, dark mode can still be customized to use dark gray or black base colors and to toggle on demand, automatically based on screen brightness, or automatically at sunrise and sunset.
The Settings, Edit List, and Edit Location views use the new iOS 13 draggable modal functionality. Drag down on the views to dismiss them. (You can still do this on iOS 12, but it’s much better now in iOS 13.)
Stay tuned for more iOS 13 support!
In case you missed what was new recently in Partly Sunny, here are some highlights:
In Settings > Temperatures, there’s a new toggle to simultaneously show the current actual and “feels like” temperatures in Locations View and the widget.
For Partly Sunny Club subscribers, there’s a new popup view to customize the weather map layer and other map settings.
For locations in the US, there’s a new Radar & Warnings layer in Map Settings to show severe weather warnings on the map in addition to radar. (Partly Sunny Club required.)
For locations in the US and Canada, there’s a new Advisories layer in Map Settings to show weather advisories on the map like “heat advisory”, “air quality alert”, and “wind chill advisory”. (Partly Sunny Club required.)
In Map Settings, you can now customize the selected weather layer to be more or less transparent, the starting zoom level of the map to be a little more zoomed in or out, and the type of map (standard, satellite, or hybrid). (Partly Sunny Club required.)

Ratings and Reviews
New Favorite Weather App!
Partly Sunny is now my favorite weather app! The app design is sleek, easy to use and super intuitive. It features loads of customizable options that I can use depending on what my current needs are. Prior to this I was using another weather app almost exclusively, but after stumbling across Partly Sunny, I have changed my mind! One weekend while my family was visiting, we were supposed to do some outdoor sight seeing. The forecast on my previous weather app called for gloom and rain all weekend. Partly Sunny, however, gave a much more optimistic outlook. So we decided to take our chances and go with what PS forecasted. I’m very grateful we did because what PS predicted was far more accurate and we ended up being able to do everything outside that we wanted to do. Since then, I’ve never gone back to the old app. It seems that other apps show a more generalized “safe” prediction while PS isn’t afraid to report a more detailed and precise forecasts. Well worth the switch!
My favorite weather app
I’ve been using Partly Sunny since the beginning and it’s the first weather app that has combined a design I really like with thoughtful UX design and detailed data if I want it. I love the graphs and the happy little icons and being able to use the “feels like” temperature at a glance.
I signed up for the yearly subscription so I can see yesterday’s weather and it’s been really helpful when I’m getting dressed in the morning. I’ve also used the time machine feature while packing for the holidays since I couldn’t remember how cold it was last year. Great timing for this update!
Almost perfect, widget can be tweaked
I will start by saying that the app itself is beautiful and perfect 5/5. I have literally tried dozens of other weather apps and this one is by far the best. I love all the large in app icons for the weather and the hour by hour graph works very well. I also love how bold the icons look when you swipe up to wee the weekly forecast.
However, a bit of criticism, I don't think that the clean, bold and beautiful icons translate well into the widget. Here are a few suggestions I have.
1) While the hour by hour graph looks great in the app, on the widget it takes too much unnecessary room while the widget is expanded and leaves a lot unused wasted space. I feel like it could easily be condensed hight wise about 10-20%. This would allow for point 2.
2) The weekly forecast icons are so easily visible and large/bold in the app but on the widget they are squeezed in on the bottom very tightly and are so small that its hard to see them. I feel like if the hourly graph on top was condensed it would allow more room for the weekly forecast icons on the bottom. This way the widgets icons would be proportional to the in app icons and the whole widget would feel just a bit cleaner and in sync with the app.
But other than that I love the app, I just think the widget could be tweaked.
