Dark Sky can tell you at a glance exactly when it will rain (or snow) up to an hour in advance, so you’re free to walk the dog or run out to lunch and know you’ll stay dry. You can also explore the most beautiful weather animation you’ve ever seen, both forward in time or back.
(Dark Sky is available in the US, UK and Ireland.)
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.
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.

The weather app isn’t always accurate , considering you send a report of what the weather is actually doing . The graphics are easy to read .
The Best weather app I’ve ever used, highly recommend it, I’m an amateur astrophotographer and this app helps immensely in planning a night of stargazing, extremely accurate for my needs, well done to the Developer. A Must Have App.
So far brilliant predictions
Storm was the best weather app. Too bad it has recently discontinued
Thanks. Good video and very informative.
Everything a weather bug needs.
I love the way this app is built and the detail it provide. But it is very inaccurate over and over again. For example: I will receive the morning weather forecast and it states that where I’m at it will be 115 degrees that day. But when the day is over the actual temperature for the day only reaches 103 degrees. That’s a huge difference. This happens over and over again on hot days. When the weather is in the 70’s is seem to be more accurate. Shouldn’t a weather app at least predict the temp accurately?
No other app comes close to Dark Sky's accuracy. It's one of, like, three apps I've actually paid for and it's been worth every penny. I've told my family and friends and many have converted too. Love getting the "rain's about to start" on my Apple watch, too.

I read the reviews on dark sky and recently many people are complaining that it’s not accurate? Is that true? I’m talking about accurate on iPhone. Don’t care about the watch cause I don’t own one
That's not Chuck Norris doing push-ups -- that's Chuck Norris moving the Earth away from the path of a deadly asteroid.
i can't stand the little kiddie/goofy looking animations and drawing looking things in carrot weather. I'm not a fan of that kind of stuff. So i'll keep looking at dark sky. Idk if it's worth 5 bucks though
Hey there. Thanks for a review. Can you tell me what iPhone case you were using in this video looks really nice. Thanks much
