Additional Information

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.

What's New on this version 5.2.3

  • Incredibly accurate

    Living in NYC, you can't afford not knowing what the weather will be like. Dark Sky became my go-to daily weather app, and I can count on precise and accurate information for exactly where I am.


  • Disappointed after update

    This has been a solid app and my go to weather app for a while and it has always been fantastic. I work outdoors and like the heads up that rain is coming. While the major update with ios10 was a disaster, the follow up "fixes" have only partially fixed it. My location is routinely off, sometimes by a lot. My forecast changes wildly in a span of 20 minutes. Don't tell me that 20 minutes before a given time is to soon to predict the weather accurately. My notifications that rain is starting sometimes happen, sometimes not. When they do happen they are usually telling me that rain will start in 15 min but it has already been raining for ten by the time the notice pops up. And now I get notifications telling me the rain has stopped. Well 1) I can see that and 2)it wasn't actually raining anyway. I used to be super happy with this app, now it's just junk.


  • Buggy

    Swipe right on iPad to get to 7 day forecast repeatedly does not load The promise of Dark Sky always exceeds reality. It is getting tiresome


  • Not as accurate as it used to be.

    Kind of sad.


  • Excellent app!

    I live at the beach and always check this app before hitting the sand. The weather warning is great. Update: the forecast for future days is screwed up on my iPad. I have to scroll down for a while before it shows up. I assumed it was broken until I read a review that said to do that. This needs to be corrected. It's ok on my iPhone.


  • To The Point Weather

    Still my default app. Gives me the info I need quickly and clearly. Many apps looks more beautiful but their info layout is complex or spread out. This used to be EXTREMELY accurate but seems to have lost accuracy as the years have gone by. But it's close enough and simple enough to use that I keep using it.


  • Good but Needs more

    Need to be able to view multiple columns at the same time on the 7 day details springboard. Needs Dew point!


  • They broke it

    This is a great app but the iOS 10 update broke it pretty much beyond use.


  • Best weather app I've used.

    Super detailed and specific. I dig the push notifications for rain.


  • User

    Be careful before purchasing this app. I just did and find that the iPad version is all messed up on iOS 10 and the widget doesn't work for either the iPhone or iPad which is why I bought it after reading an article that raved about it having one of the best widgets on the iPhone. You need to scroll down and scroll down and scroll down to view daily weather on the iPad. Ugh


  • Love this app!

    Great to use on a daily basis! The auto alerts are awesomely customizable!!


  • Great to disaster

    In the beginning, wherever I was Dark Sky was there and pretty accurate. Now with iOS 10, it is wrong 90% of the time, wrong city, wrong street and never has the forecast forward like in the past. Guess they have given up....I have. Storm is my go too now😩


  • Amazing weather app

    This is by far one of my favorite weather apps. It's scary how accurate it is of when it is going to start raining etc. My only gripe is it still sometimes doesn't update the complication on my Apple Watch. Otherwise I would wholeheartedly recommend this app to everyone.


  • As others have stated

    Great app. Just tired of blank weekly forecast screen on iPad Air 2 Fix this and you have a 5 star weather app. Thanks


  • Review for Dark Sky

    YAY for weather


  • Worthless app

    This app could not be more inaccurate. The last two massive lightning and thunderstorms we have had, DARK SKY said light rain. Heck, I didn't need to spend $3.99. I could just stick my head out the window and get a better reading. I'd love to get my money back as this is of no use.


  • The Best

    What a fantastic amazing weather app. Just get it and plan your morning/day/week around it.


  • Love it

    It's great


  • Please fix, again! And Again!!!

    Since you updated I STILL can't get the extended forecast! It's maddening! Updated on 9/24 and still not working... 9/29- still having the same problem on the iPad with the extended forecast not loading. So frustrating!!


  • Updates break DARK SKY.

    Side the last two updates the weekly forecast page does not load. I would rate this 5-star if it all worked like before. Bummed out .


  • Hoping for better.

    I'm hopeful but with the forecast screen problems I have returned to my previous apps. I think this app has promise.


  • Update for iOS 10 does NOT fix

    The second page which used to show the forecast for the coming week is now a blank page and has been since I installed iOS 10 and the upgrade to dark sky which is supposed to fix all this. What a pity.


  • Best Weather App

    Very accurate. Useful notifications. The very best iOS 10 Widget. The only thing that could be improved would be a temp chart for the day. Definitely get this weather app!


  • Awesome

    Awesome


  • LOVE IT!

    More accurate than Yahoo weather!


  • Dark Sky

    Freakishly accurate. All I ever need to know in one touch.


  • Same problems after second update

    I just figured out that the 7 day forecast is there. You just have to scroll down the blank page to see it. Changed from 3 stars to 4. Will give 5 stars when this problem is fixed and the widget comes back. I have an iPad 4 with IOS 9.3.5. Still no 7 day forecast and the widget is still gone.


  • Broken for a while

    I like this app a lot, but it's been broken on my iPad Pro (smaller) running latest iOS 9 since recent updates. Future forecast is completely blank.


  • It never seems to work when I need it to

    Or it is just completely off


  • iOS iPad failure

    Does not work on iPad using 9.5.3. NOT FIXED. Yes, haha there were bugs after you upgraded to iOS 10 capability- you messed up 9.5 users and this is not yet fixed. Frustrated..


  • BeWeather is better, you can't select location for Alerts

    The best part of this app is the customizable alerts. Unfortunately, you can only have the app give you alerts for your present location. It would be better to be able to specify the location that you wanted alerts for. That way, when I'm traveling, I could have an alert warn me about freezing temperatures or high winds at my home. Other than the alerts, this app doesn't seem to work any better than BeWeather, which has a much better interface and presentation of the weather forecast, and is free.


  • Don't buy

    This app is not helpful nor work well.


  • Forecast screen missing

    Rain function is the best! Overall is fair. Get programing help.


  • Appears to be under reconstruction

    On iPad Pro only the basic precipitation map and the current day forecast are visible. Future days page is blank. I read on their sister website (forecast.io) that it is being renamed dark sky.net and will have multiple maps (temp, precip, 3D, several other). Both app and site to remain separate, with some advantages over the other. It appears this redesign activity is currently making the app version incomplete and the maps on the website don't show geographic outlines if you try to focus them on specific locations. I am hoping these problems will be fixed soon but for now the app on iPad is current day only.


  • Accurate & easy

    App is accurate, easy to use & has full spectrum of weather information.


  • Not getting alerts

    This app used to be awesome, but for some reason I don't get alerts any longer. I've checked all settings, deleted app and re downloaded, checked settings again, still no alerts. The largest selling point of this app (rain alerts) doesn't even work. Very disappointing.


  • Amazing

    This is the most accurate and well designed weather app in the store


  • Not worth the price

    This is a very over-hyped and over-priced app. Very basic info. Map very slow to load. Cannot get extended forecast screen to load at all on an iPad Mini 4 running iOS 10. Only consider purchasing if you want a simple weather app for short term forecasts.


  • Dark Sky

    - Removal of notifications both daily and "warnings", ( as far as I can tell), is very annoying. The usefulness of this app has been diminished. I hope that this feature will be re-introduced soon. The unique look and interface is still very nice and tho the 3-D Touch feature is a nice "touch", the current version of this app is not worth the price.


  • Amazing

    I check several different weather apps every day and this one is the best. Definitely worth the four dollars!


  • Heads up weather!

    Best weather app ever. Notifications and timing is on point and has been great for trips to Disney world, etc. we can plan when to have lunch and be out and about based on the weather. No more getting rained on.


  • No weekly forecast on latest update

    Latest update is STILL broken. There is no weekly forecast on the iPad version.


  • Awesome!

    One of the very few apps I have ever paid for so that says a lot. Very accurate and very well done app. My friends are jealous and want it!


  • Great weather app

    Loads fast, unique and clean UI, and it's accuracy has kept me from getting wet because I did not have my umbrella, unlike some other weather apps. Worth it.


  • Does not work

    I'm running IOS10 and just bought this app. Maybe it used to work well, but it doesn't now. It does not show any daily weather details at all. I wish I could get my money back.


  • Watch app still broken

    I love the app on my phone and I used to love it on my Watch, but it no longer works on Watch. Have tried deleting all around and re-installing to no avail.


  • Disappointed

    The program is buggy. The forecast page is gone, the locations disappear and I have to type in the locations and a lot of times it saids that rain is coming when it is already raining.


  • 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


  • Mr.

    Used to be my go to weather app. Hasn't worked properly since ios-10. Common guys, get with the picture!


  • Annoying bug, otherwise it's great!

    (iPhone 7, iOS 10.0.2) Big plus for me is the watch complication (especially the large one with the modular face) is by far the best I've found for a weather app. My one and only issue with this app is that the map doesn't update to show my current location until the 2nd or 3rd time I open the app after I drive somewhere, unless I force close the app. This has become more annoying as time goes by. I'll try again with the next update. I don't see anyone else commenting on this issue though. It's strange as the app shows weather data for my current location, it's simply the marker on the map that seems to never update.
