Dark Sky Weather

The Most Popular Traffic Exchange Service

Dark Sky is the most accurate source of hyperlocal weather information. With down-to-the-minute forecasts, you’ll know exactly when the rain will start or stop, right where you’re standing. (It’s like magic.)

Featured in: New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, Wired, and more.

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.

Explore weather in the past or future. Choose a date and see historical weather data or future predictions based off of seasonal averages.

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.

In this week's video I go through two of the top downloaded paid weather apps on the iOS top charts: Dark Sky and Carrot Weather. Watch now to find out which ...

Is there a weather app that has an animated widget? Like clouds blowing in, rain, sun shining, snow etc.

Great review, very informative thankyou.

4 star

I heard of Dark Sky from TWiT.tv’s Leo Laporte and have found this app to be just freaking spot on for the most part it’s friendly and approachable and does a better job of showing the weather than the Met Office app (which tracks and thros ads at you which Dark Sky doesn’t) A couple of suggestions though: 1. It’s not immediate obvious that you can tap on the large temperature/current conditions and get more info like UV, wind, moon, sunset etc. 2. The more info screen that contains the moon phase, wind, UV etc also has the text labelled in a way that is read from left to right top down instead of group by group, for example I would read temperature degrees, wind nne, feels like degrees, 10 mph. I am using VoiceOver since I am visually impaired, I would appreciate if the developer wouldnt’ mind trying their app out with VO and seeing what I mean, you can turn it on/off with Siri by saying ‘turn on VoiceOver’ Apple’s Developer site has more info on UIKit etc accessibility, and if the app is a web app, then the W3C WCAG 2.1 and WAI-ARIA standards should be more than sufficient since this is a very simple app at least in terms of UI. Always recommending it.

This app is fantastic for really accurate forecasts for the next hour, however I have found it's not nearly as reliable as other apps when looking beyond that. Still invaluable though and I'd buy it again!

Feels-Like seems to be broken in the latest release. For me it always shows the same as Temp. Of course, it could be Temp that’s broken...

Which is more accurate between the 2?

1 star

This used to be a great app, but it’s become a piece of garbage. It’s so inaccurate that it’s not even worth looking at. Seriously, my iPhone weather app is more accurate. For example, Today it said rain 100% at 8am and zero percent at 10am. It never rained at 8am and it’s said rain 100% at 9am, 10am and 11am.

2 star

It’s quite buggy. I just updated the app, and now it won’t even load. For nearly $4, I expected more.

5 star

Really one of the best Weather Apps, wish it could present temperatures in Kelvin.

But which one is better for Apple Watch? Do you get notifications on the Apple Watch with both? Is carrot weather worth the extra cost?

The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew.
