Dark Sky Weather

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 ...

They need to make weather app that is show accurate forecast after 1 month, accurate precipitation like dark sky and radar

1 star

Totally Disappointed

3 star

I’ve used this for years and like the data and overall concept. It’s forecasts are nice and accurate and current. However the revised interface is a bit of a disaster, irs overly complex and more difficult to use than the old one. My biggest gripe however is trying to select wind speed rather than temperature, this require a sideways slope at the bottom of the screen which on iOS on an iPhone 10 I generally swap apps rather than select the wind speed ....... arrrg did no one test the user interface usability ?

The new interface is very inefficient, more like a web site than an app in the way it wastes space. And it still defaults to showing temperature rather than probability of precipitation: why? I don’t understand. How do I change this? Why it is even like that? To cap it all, recently Dark Sky has been been responsible for 11% of my entire battery use. Close to getting rid of what I believe is my my oldest paid app.

Great review. From the presentation I would chose Carrot Weather. Seems better to me.

Chuck Norris isn't all that interested in astronomy. The only stars Chuck Norris cares about are the 50 on the flag of the USA, the one that's part of his Ranger badge, and the Lone Star of Texas.

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?
