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. YOUR WEATHER, DOWN TO THE MINUTE 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. PUSH NOTIFICATIONS 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. TODAY WIDGET 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. TIME MACHINE Explore weather in the past or future. Choose a date and see historical weather data or future predictions based off of seasonal averages. APPLE WATCH 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.



  • Apple Watch app is broken

    By otterman
    I like this app, and the new layout, but the Apple Watch app is badly broken. It rarely displays anything, but when it does it takes 5 or so minutes to show anything. The complication also never displays an icon. Maybe fixed in iOS 12?
  • Not a fan

    By Yolanda PumpSquat
    Have always used and loved Dark Sky. The visual redesign however, is just awful. The simple and minimalist design from before was much better.
  • New design solves what?

    By bw013
    Unclear what the new design was meant to solve. Harder for me to process the same info at a glance now. Also can’t use the new version unless my reading glasses are nearby, as the font has shrunk.
  • Great app

    By Razer126
    Functionally this app is stellar. It does exactly what I need it to do on a day to day basis. I hope to look forward to integration with the Siri Shortcuts and the Siri watch face cards for 5 stars.
  • Give us Apple CarPlay Support!!!

    By Shriketree
    This is a great app with awesome watch integration. The only thing lacking is CarPlay support. If you guys hurry you will be the only weather CarPlay app. Just a suggestion, if you do this, make it so it knows/learns your daily commute, and tells you well before you drive into severe storms. A timeline of events for the commute would be awesome too! Just start of with the radar map first, then expand!
  • Broken Display of Information

    By LB in Chicago
    The updates in the latest version have made this app unusable for me. As you see in the screen shot, it shows radar and current temperature with the forecast for the day below. I don’t need to see the radar. I live near the ocean and the microclimate does not show up on radar so the new ‘feature’ doesn’t help me at all. Worse, the daily forecast below has numbers too small for me to read. I am now looking for another weather app.
  • You broke it

    By thehalvo
    Always opens to New York City ☹️ If you can't figure out to code basic location caching then allow us the settings to permently set our default location.
  • Thank you for the update

    By RTMitch
    Well five stars back to you sir because now the app is performing perfect again!
  • No good after update

    By ScoMart
    Sold multiple people on the old App (you are welcome). Not good after the update. Not an issue with not liking change. Functionality and accuracy took several steps back. Another user asking for the old App back
  • Watch app still buggy

    By unser4040404
    I just updated my watch to iOS 5 and the bugs are back! On my watch face i only see dashes or the Dark Sky Icon. If I open the app on my watch I am able to see the weather forecast but when I return to the watch face, it’s dashes again. I uninstalled, re-installed, rebooted, updated app on phone... still didn’t fix. Frustrating!
