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 5.2.9

- Fix for Widget crashes / wonky updating
- Fix for occasional Apple Watch complication update issues

  • Incredible App - A Must Have

    I was sitting in a meeting at work, when I got an alert via he Dark Sky App that heavy rain would end in 15 mins. All of a sudden it started pouring rain outside hard, and sure enough 12-15 minutes later it stopped. This app is very accurate and a must have! I also like the additional alert features you can customize... 5 Stars!

  • Short term forecasts great, long term off at times

    I like the interface more than anything, and of course the short term weather updates. Long term seem a little of at times, I see this frequently, hence the four star rating. Otherwise my goto app for weather.

  • DagNabbitRabbit🐰 Sprint iphone 7+

    Dark Skies is an ominous name for a very sweet, fun, & informative weather app. It's the kind that you would be very pleased to introduce your youngster to the world of weather forecasting. Hardly dark at all, rather...Sunny Skies, Or...Snowy Skies....or....rainy skies. Maybe they could change the name as the weather changes day by day. But don't judge an app by its name.. Download dark skies and try it out. You won't be sorry. DagNabbitRabbit Approved 🐰

  • I use it all the time.

    It's great.

  • Five stars

    Great app!

  • Favorite Weather App

    I love that I can get the accurate (I stress accurate) weather for my exact location! I wish the map had more features but since the basic information is so accurate it's not really necessary to see what's coming. Kudos!

  • My main app

    Excellent work - best in its class 👌🏼

  • So easy

    I like just the facts without any clutter. With this app I can immediately learn what's happening in "my neck of the woods"!

  • Close, but

    Drizzled on and off all weekend, app kept telling me the nearest precipitation was 89 miles away. Now it keeps reverting to Mostly Cloudy though we have about 70% sunshine. I continue submitting weather from my current location but I get the feeling that info goes nowhere. It is pretty good at telling me when a thunderstorm is about to occur. Not better than other weather apps I got for free. Live and learn!

  • Love it

    Great app!!! Thank you!

  • Finally a weather app with a nice clean interface.

    I used Garmin's now defunct "My-Cast" for years due to its simple and clean interface and (initial) accuracy. This app serves as a nice replacement. Loving it so far!

  • Woah

    By far my favorite weather app in the App Store. Living in Chicago, we have some unexpected weather and this app helps me prepare for it. When it says "rain soon", its spot on every single time.

  • Best Weather App

    I have multiple weather apps and this is the only one I use. It's the most accurate, easy to use and visually helpful.

  • Great for Apple Watch too.

    It will give notifications like "drizzle starting in your area in 10 minutes." Great interface that is both stylish and intuitive.

  • Bummin'

    No barometric pressure on this app. Missing this important part of weather data. So disappointing. I need this to predict migraines. C'mon guys. Add barometric pressure.

  • Favorite Weather App

    I have two other weather apps, but DarkSky is my go to weather app. I know what I want to know with minimal effort or searching.

  • Love it!!!!!

    Worth every penny, it shows everything I need to know plus gives me notifications when it rains, snows, etc before it starts and when it ends. Love it 5/5 star

  • Favorite Weather App

    Accurate and eye-catching!

  • Great weather app

    The precipitation notifications are what brought me to Dark Sky originally, but it's now an excellent all-purpose weather app in its own right.

  • Not accurate at all.. FAIL!!!

    Sitting here writing this during a storm. This app never sent any alerts. The other day I walked under a cloud, 10 minutes later it rained never alerted. Tried to request a refund and it says this app is not eligible for a refund. Is not enough negative stars to rate this app in my experience. Four dollars is Way too much for this, my free local channel app alerts me much better than this.

  • My favorite weather app

    Generally it is outstanding but it requires frequent checking. I will tell my golf buddies I checked at 8 am and there is no chance of rain via DS, but my buddy checked at 9 and says, "Check again - rain for four hours starting in 30 minutes".

  • A fresh look at the weather

    It's the indispensable weather app to scan the world around you. Although weather is inherently unpredictable, I've found this right far more than wrong. You can also scan the radar and make your own predictions.

  • My Favorite App!

    The reasons that this is my favorite app is because it is a very simple app and it is easy to find what you are looking for. Also the app notifies you 10 minutes prier to your present time if there is going to be any precipitation. Lastly the app uses your exact address of your location for your whether status.

  • Great weather app

    The best I've ever used.

  • Love the app!!

    I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could.

  • Best weather app

    I have been using other apps and was on the fence about purchasing one vs. using a free one. This app is worth the money. It gives accurate detail at your exact location vs. the vicinity. I have been able to make or cancel plans because of the accuracy. It is now the only weather app I use.

  • Watch issues not resolved.

    Still getting generic icon, wrong temperature, and slow updates on Apple Watch despite restarts and reinstalls.

  • Lightning data needed

    Urgently need lightning strike data to include distance. Haven't used much because hasn't always been accurate or wouldn't update to my location.

  • My favorite weather app

    I use it every day, and it's got the premium location on my home page!

  • Reliable, informative, worth the price

    I use Dark Sky every day to have the most up-to-date weather info. No other weather app that I've used has come close!

  • Now I know

    Superb weather app for your location. No fiddling around, it tells you what you want where you are. Wonderful app

  • Good IPhone app, not so good watch app

    I wanna give it more stars! But every time I open it on my watch, I get a "uh oh" bug that doesn't allow it to fetch my location. And yes I have locations shared with it.

  • It's good.

    It sometimes has trouble with the PNW's hilltop blocked radar and slow, low elevation drizzle. But those are data source issues and certainly difficult for anyone interpreting radar data.

  • Top weather app by far

    It's hyper local, it's clear and easy to use. I've tried most other apps and this wins hands down.

  • Worth It

    Best weather app available. No question.

  • Awesome

    Best weather app on the market! Let's know what's coming without having to open the app constantly to check.

  • Ok

    Ok but was oversold to me. Not useful for weekly forecasts, just rifht-now-weather

  • Feels very old

    The interface reminds me of IOS 6 - back when we had the glowing green battery! I was expecting a beautiful app (AND A DARK MODE!), but was disappointed at the lack of customization and user interface. Not worth $4 in my opinion.

  • Cats and Dogs

    No warning. no nothing. Just sitting in the Dark now.

  • Great Weather App

    Have just down loaded the app today and have fun playing with it. My only complaint is that I have input about 10 separate addresses I like to monitor, wish I could name the places instead of remembering addresses.

  • Becoming less and less reliable

    Used to be spot on with the forecast, now more and more often I am running into situation when the app shows little to no rain, and it's actually pouring.

  • Way more precise than anything else

    If I'm outside and it's cloudy I can guess it will rain, but not down to the minute like this app can. Plus if it's raining I can't tell when it's going to stop and start back up again. It was raining and I had to run out to my car to grab something but this app said the rain would stop in 5 minutes then start back up 7 minutes later, so I waited to go outside and got everything out I needed before rain started up again.

  • Very Accurate with timely alerts.

    Want to be the person that knows to go inside or seek cover 5 minutes before the weather gets nasty...use this app. It keeps track of your location and the weather where you are and lets you know via alerts if it's a downpour, a drizzle, or something in between.

  • Precipitation Notifications

    So so app that I use this in conjunction with Weather Underground & Storm by weather underground. Essentially this app is good for one thing & that's notifying you of upcoming precipitation changes along with intensity. With that being said I've had it for 24hrs now & it has notified me that's it's raining as well as the app claiming current rain with light intensity. Went & checked my weather underground app & it showed the correct weather which was mostly cloudy with rain further east. Great idea, but I wish I just saved my money. Most likely this app will eventually get deleted & I will go back to checking my weather underground apps more often. Weather Underground uses outdoor personal weather stations across the nation while darksky uses the internal sensors of handheld devices to accumulate & automated weather changes based on barometric changes. All in all a decent idea but never as accurate as weather underground's setup.

  • Dark Sky

    This is the best weather app I ever used. It gets 5 stars plus

  • I love weather

    So of course I couldn't resist all the rave reviews. But this app has nothing on wunderground. Slightly disappointed I paid for the app.

  • Extremely accurate

    This app is extremely accurate especially when predicting when and how much rain in the next several hours. I open it multiple times everyday. And as a tennis and bicycle fanatic knowing whether it's going to rain - how much and how long - is very helpful. Also for the commute to work knowing how hard it's going to rain or snow is very helpful in predicting what the commute is likely to be. I love this app.

  • Best weather App

    I've used Dark Sky for a few years now. Its interface is clean and I can get the info I want very quickly. The weather information is very accurate. I have used the App overseas (in Germany) as well as while traveling or at home in the US. The consistency is great.

  • Yes!!!

    Finally! A Weather App that really works!

  • Amazing

    Most accurate weather app I have ever used. No need too use any others now. Enjoy!
