Dark Sky offers 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.) YOUR WEATHER, DOWN TO THE MINUTE Dark Sky delivers forecasts for your precise location, giving you minute-by-minute predictions for the next hour and hour-by-hour forecasts for the next week. BEAUTIFUL WEATHER ANIMATIONS The same technology that powers Dark Sky’s predictions also allows us to make beautifully smooth radar animations. These animations show you the path of the storm, including how it moved up to now and where it’s going next. NOTIFICATIONS Dark Sky comes with advanced notification options. Receive up-to-the-minute alerts before it starts raining at your exact location, get notified of severe weather alerts (for events such as thunderstorms, flooding, hurricanes etc.) or even create your own custom notifications covering the next 24 hours for things such as temperature, wind, precipitation and more. Dark Sky will tell you what you need to know, when you need to know it. WIDGET The Dark Sky widget tells you at a glance what’s going to happen in the next hour or the next week, so you don’t even have to unlock your phone to quickly check the weather before going out. TIME MACHINE Explore weather in the past or future. Choose a date and see historical weather data or future predictions based on seasonal averages. APPLE WATCH Dark Sky looks great on your wrist. Get notifications and view the weather for the next week with the Dark Sky app built for Apple Watch. Dark Sky is available in the US, UK and Ireland.

Most Accurate Weather app I’ve usedI’ve tried a whole bunch of weather apps, ‘Weather Zone’ was incredibly accurate while in Australia but wasn’t the same in the UK and was really missing the confidence that it gave me. I’ve looked a bunch apps since being home and most left me very disappointed. Dark Sky has been a god send, I do a lot of outdoor stuff and the reliability this app gives me is unbeatable :).Score: 5/5

Map is easy to use and combined with App very accurateAlways use map combined with App to get the best forecast Use a lot of other apps but this seems to be the best Important to use map as well as App and in conjunction with each other a great weather App.Score: 5/5

A great app.Dark Sky is one of those apps you can’t do without. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve avoided being caught out and soaked because of its notifications. My only issue is with the radar map, which appears to ‘smear’ whenever I hit the play button. It could do with an overhaul..Score: 4/5

No longer accurateThis app used to be brilliant - I’d get a notification for rain and three minutes later down it would come. For the past few months I’ve been caught in multiple downpours because the forecast said ‘no precipitation for the next hour’ and have delayed going out (missing valuable British sun/dry spells) because it said rain was imminent. If I hadn’t paid for it I’d delete it. As it is, I check other weather sources rather than trusting Dark Skies as I used to. So disappointing..Score: 1/5

Highly InaccurateBefore the apple takeover this app was brilliant always accurate and could always count on it. But ever since the apple takeover. It is so unreliable for example recently we had storm christoph in the UK. It said clear all day and it did nothing but rain and snow throughout. To be honest apple this is looking like a way to kill what was once a perfect app such a shame. Update May 2021 it’s still inaccurate notifications now don’t send half of the time and I get stuck in a massive downpour..Score: 1/5

Needs a proper widgetNeeds to be updated with an ios14 widget. I thought the Apple purchase would be great for darksky, but it’s becoming less accurate and the updates are languishing, meanwhile fees to none of the features we love darksky for have made it into the official Apple weather app. Worst of both worlds..Score: 2/5

Gone downhillAccuracy is down the toilet with temp and wind these days. WeatherPro which is pretty much a dead duck is way more accurate. Old review: What makes an app great is devs who listen and respond to feedback. So far zero response over a year. 2020 - Always great but can we add Wind Gust to the notification options please for predicting good drone flying weather. Also would still like to see cloud cover notification too for astronomy. Old review: Thank you for this amazing product! One wish. Can custom notifications include Cloud cover. Because sometimes you might want to do some astronomy in the evening and clouds are a huge problem in the UK. Or during the day you want to make a video and clouds ruin it. Would be good to notify if X < > % over next 4 hours. That way you can do an alert for morning or evening. Thanks!.Score: 1/5

RubbishThis app is junk. It continually gives the wrong forecast and even the current weather is wrong nearly 90% of the time. I spend most of my time on it just sending it feedback of what the weather is currently like. What’s the point in that - it’s supposed to reliably tell ME what the weather is going to be. Don’t waste your money, most weather apps are crap and this one is crappier than most. Not sure why I thought it would be better just because it’s now an Apple owned app. 😡.Score: 1/5

More radar data pleaseI used to use this app all the time when I lived in the UK and it was spectacular. Since I moved to Spain I’m no longer able to due to the lack of detailed radar data. I now have to use the much inferior rainalarm app which is able to get the data. Pretty please can you increase your coverage areas to include Spain. I assume it’s not trivial do so but you have the heft of apple behind you now to get some resources on it. Thanks..Score: 4/5

Forecast accuracy has plummeted recentlyI was the world’s biggest Dark Sky fan until recently. It had forecast rain for the next hour down to the minute. Incredible! But something has happened recently, at least for England forecasts. The app says it’s raining, and it’s not. The app says it’s not raining, and it is.

Best weather app out there. Worth the £3.99After using almost every single app on the App Store for weather in the UK. It was always missing a feature. e.g. standard weather didn’t let me look precisely into the future. Met office took ages to update. Accuweather was laggy and slow. But after trying dark sky. I love the precise 1 hour forecast. Easy to read radar and future weather with in depth detail. Notifications are a lot better than other apps and to top it all off. Widgets and an app on the Apple Watch. Perfect weather app for me.Score: 5/5

First day of use and it was wrongI rarely purchase apps but thought I’d give this one a try because of the good feedback. So I bought it but on the first day it gave my location as overcast all day...I looked out the window and it was total blue sky and stayed like that for the next 3 hours!.Score: 1/5

Fallen from graceThis app used to be perfect. If it said you had a twenty minute dry spell on 12 minutes you could set your watch by it. Nowadays it will tell me it’s overcast when it’s a beautiful cloudless sky or that there’s light rain when it’s dry out. As a long forecast app it’s not necessarily as nice as others so losing its short term clairvoyance makes it useless.Score: 2/5

No Wind Speed on mapBUT DarkSky website has it. If that would be not enough it has 3hrs Wind Speed prediction on map. Is it too much for Apple to.... just copy it? Isn't Apple owner of this app so they are not allowed to do this? I could understand if that would be FREE app and pay £4 to gave that option but - it is not :(.Score: 1/5

Poor layout for the priceMost of the information that you have to scroll though and select could be made available on one single screen. We don’t need to see a long line to show a higher temperature and a short line to indicate a lower temperature, we know what a number means and it’s a waste visual space. It’s not even like it’s a visually appealing bar graph. Then we have to scroll down and press buttons to go to different screens which also contain buttons to see other basic information. Please add the symbols for sun, wind rain etc on the same screen as the temperature along with wind speeds etc or at least allow a flick-through page-style layout. For £3.99 I expect a decent amount of effort to go into the visual experience..Score: 2/5

DisappointingMy experience over first two months of use are that these forecasts are too frequently inaccurate. I can’t rely on it so I’ll probably delete it. As I type this, Dark Sky says it is overcast here whereas the sky is clear and the sun is shining. An all too common experience..Score: 2/5

Just disappointedDark Sky was one of those apps that I heard about for years. Developers loved using the API, and the App Store showed some great reviews for the iOS app. After losing trust in the reliability of some other well know weather apps, I finally pulled the trigger on the paid version of dark sky. It seemed to work well for the first few weeks, but it has become oddly unreliable, and the radar seems to show an alternate reality. It’s now just another generic weather app that hardly ever tracks precipitation correctly. Even if it wasn’t much to purchase, I regret it..Score: 1/5
