Additional Information


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

What's New on this version 5.2.6

- Updated the map base layers, including new vector city labels.
- Reigned in how often the widget updates / requests new forecast data.
- Attempt to fix Apple Watch data refresh issues.
- Rich notifications now respect your unit selection.
- Other minor stuff.

Recent Reviews and Comments

  • Hands down best weather app best.

    It feels like back to the future with the rain predictions.

  • Outstanding WX app

    As an active pilot who 'pays attention' to changing weather conditions, this app is nothing less than phenomenal! Accurate weather forecasting is tough but this is the best I've seen. If there was one improvement I could suggest is to add 'knots' in addition to mph for speed.

  • Disappointed

    If a weather app supports the Apple watch, you would think it would have complications support. That's a huge let down and hope it gets updated soon. Also the widget should give all day info not 5 day forecast. App is pretty but not worth the money when there are free apps.

  • Awesome

    Love it. Get it. It's awesome.

  • I want my money back

    I have given this app plenty of time to get it right. I'm very disappointed as it was rated so highly. Don't waste your time and money!!!!

  • Need weekend schedule for daily report

    I wake up early during the week but sleep in on Sat/Sun. Well, I'd like to. But I use the daily notification in Dark Sky and you can't set it to come later on weekends. So here I am in bed before sunrise on a Saturday morning writing this review instead of sleeping. Otherwise a fantastic app.

  • The Best Weather app

    I have used this app for 2 years it has amazing accuracy when it works! Dark Sky notifications on iphone or ipad either spot on or total malfunction. I delete and reload the app usually improving the problem. During hurricane season in Florida I rely on this app to plan my week.

  • Not my weather

    The temperature is consistently off by about 10 degrees. The alerts are behind by about 30 minutes. This is a relatively recent problem. Last year it was great. I no longer rely on anything it says.

  • Best of its kind

    Incredibly accurate forecast , especially in short term. A+++

  • Best weather app!

    Best Weather app!

  • Dark Sky delivers

    Generally reliable and easy to use. What like data further out in time.

  • Awesome

    I have had this app for a few years now, I have tried many other weather apps and this one has always been my favorite. Its simple yet you get a lot from it. Real life application: We were in Disney world a while ago and we got the notification that it was going to start raining heavily in 10 minutes even with the skies looking very clear we took its word and got to an indoor ride. As soon as we got there I checked the app and down to the very minute the rain came pouring down, then the line for our ride got huge, and we were at the front because we knew before it started. I love this app! It has a few glitches here and there on the map, other then that 5 stars all the way!

  • Best weather app out there!!!!!

    I love this app! It's practical and simple to use. So far I have found it is extremely accurate. Since Forcast app went away I was looking for something to compare and this better and more than I was looking for. I almost never purchase apps, but this is definitely worth the $3.99.

  • Very inaccurate

    This app used to work great, but now it's very unreliable. I checked it and it told me it was 10 degrees, when really, it was 60. It's continuing to let me down; now I just use the stock weather app.

  • Awesome but can be improved

    Please add animations to the app to make it more visibly pleasing and also add a dark mode to the app, also notifications don't always come

  • X

    Very nice app. I'm a runner and particularly like the feature of, time till it rains and when precip will end. Great for planning.

  • Radar

    I love these app. Would have rated 5 stars but I think a standard radar screen is better

  • Nice features

    Particularly like the hyper-local alerts!

  • Hello anyone home?

    This app use to be awesome and now it's terrible. Notifications don't work any more and the Apple Watch complication never works. Don't bother getting it.

  • Perfect Weather Program

    There are hundreds from which to choose. This is the one I and my entire family chose. After trying dozens of others which were flawed, Dark Sky provides accurate weather in an easy to read and understand format.

  • Very good app

    Very accurate, completely satisfied. Will purchase another for my wife as a gift.

  • Disappointed

    It used to be the best weather app on iPhone. Now the weather data is really in accurate in Maui, it seems it use the weather in Kihei and imply to everywhere while weather in wailea is perfectly fine. Maybe the data coverage is really bad and the extrapolation is way too over.

  • Used to be excellent

    After the major overhaul, this app became useless. The predicts are terrible. I'm totally disappointed. Update: I gradually dislike the main page design. I have to reinstall the back. As well as the widget has overlay issue. This is a good example of how to ruin a great app by updating glitches. I really hope you only update twice a year.

  • Widged

    Widged fails to work properly on iPhone 7 Plus.iOS 10 Please fix the issue as its very annoying.

  • Best weather app out there

    Instead of the other weather apps that give vague or unnecessary information, Darksky gives you the specific information you need down to the hour. You can tell if a storm will be over by the time you'll leave work or if it's worth waiting out. It's really accurate.

  • Timely and accurate

    This gives you a more locally precise and up to date a picture of the weather around you than any of the proprietary weather apps - and without ads.

  • Great accurate app

    Having this app for over a year, I find it pretty accurate. Being in the construction industry, I find it a good tool to help schedule work and even more fun to tell subs that it will rain in a certain period of time, and it usually does. Highly recommended this app.

  • App Insta Crashes on iPad

    Looks like the animation of hourly rain chart doesn't work. It's static on my iPhone and crashes the app on my iPad.

  • Incorrect date

    Used this app for about 3 days of rain... basically everytime it said it wasn't raining and was supposed to in the next hour. It rained probably 1/4 of the time during that span

  • Inaccurate and slow

    I've used this app for over a year and visually I absolutely love the interface. Unfortunately it's extremely slow to load and, for me (near NYC), extremely inaccurate. Rain, snow, temperature - it's all close but still significantly off (e.g. "Light rain" when it's pouring buckets outside, temp wrong by 5-10 degrees). I wish it was better!

  • Go to weather app

    This app is extremely well designed and very powerful. Well worth the money.

  • My favorite weather app is not without minor flaws

    This is my go to Weather app. It's light, accurate, and easy to use. I've used it for a couple years now, and sometimes I wish that the interface were simpler, and the app was faster, like it was when I first downloaded it. However, it's not like this is a complicated, slow app. And knowing when it's going to rain will always be enormously useful!

  • Your weather app search is over...

    The accurate weather reports paired with an intuitive interface and minimalistic design aesthetic will have you hooked. Your weather app search is over. A+!

  • Great app, no thunderstorm forecast

    I love this app, but they never forecast thunderstorms! The forecasts only include whether it will rain or not. Thunderstorm alerts will appear, but they are not forecasted ahead of time.

  • Needs a refresh

    This app used to be perfect, but the design has gotten old and needs a modern "refresh". The information and accuracy isnt as accurate as it seems do be and could use improvements as well. Overall there are still some features I love such as the notifications for rain/snow the sound notification is perfect as well!

  • great!


  • Just wrong

    Heavy rain right now but app says nearest rain 39 miles away. Poor performance. Inaccurate for a few weeks.

  • Lovely!

    It's the best weather app

  • Pilot

    Already deleted after a week. Wouldn't use it if it was free.

  • Best all around weather app.

    In years of using this app I have found only one problem that has nothing to do with the app and everything to do with the frequently freaky winter weather we have where I live. Everyone I have shown this app to over the years has been impressed with its useful and informative layout.

  • The only weather app I use

    This is the only weather I app I use. I'm giving it 4 rather than 5 because the map function could be better. I like Storm's radar map. Highly recommend this weather app!!!

  • Works well for me

    As a cyclist and photographer, I depend on DarkSky to give me updates. Seems to be accurate for me. Even worked when I was in Ireland.

  • I enjoy this app

    All the other weather apps I tried to get a quick glance at the weather were annoying and wrong. This is perfect for what I want to see.

  • Comprehensive Location Specific reports

    cool animation. :) don't really know how to interpret these but they look cool week long forecasts are straightforward, graphically easy to follow nice user interface

  • Best weather app

    Precise rain forecasts, and great widget in the notification pane.

  • Apple Watch update issue

    Still does not update. Makes it pretty useless for watch unless you manually open app on watch.

  • I really like this app a lot

    Dark sky has worked very well for me. I know that there are a handful of reviews that say the forecast doesn't work all the time. I am happy with the app and have noticed that it's only getting better. In fact, I've been surprised by how well this app works. I'm looking forward to the development of even more accurate information but, for this day and this time, I am happy with what I purchased.

  • Okay

    The app is the exact opposite of accurate!

  • Do Not Buy - Notifications Not Working

    Notifications don't work. What's the point of this app without them?

  • Fantastic

    I downloaded every weather app I could find. Tried them all. Only use DS.
