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. 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. 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.



  • Not reliable

    By Suba.antu
    This app is not reliable, it will notify you “it will rain in 30 mins” after rain has already started. What is the point?
  • Terrible

    By evansrj17
    Maps are slow to load; 1st grade level detail; has been inaccurate every time I have used it.
  • Poor

    By iaplelover
    Has hidden shadows from panes behind screens making hard to see which are black because it cant update a map. Immediately uninstalling. Launches with a touchy globe instead of where you live.
  • Great looking but NOT accurate!

    By FireMedk
    What good is a weather app if it looks great and gives you a ton of information but is wrong 95% of the time? I paid for this app based on the awesome reviews and I live in a big city in Southern California so it's not like it's an impossible task to get the weather right once in a while. Heck, even the weatherman is more accurate than this app. It's Southern California. How hard could that be? Apparently, it's pretty difficult for the developers at Dark Sky. It doesn't even give me the correct current temp outside and they could just copy another more accurate weather app for that simple information. I know there are a ton of great reviews but maybe no one is comparing it to other apps and weather electronics because this was a waste of my time and a waste of my money.
  • Problems with world map.

    By Warner Robins
    I’ve used this app for a couple years now without problems but for the last few weeks, the map function is obscured by large black squares that move around as the scale is changed.
  • Program

    By FreddyNieves
    Very nice APP
  • The BEST I’ve seen!

    By bajaegaach
    Enjoy ease of ‘reading’ the Sky and Accuracy if weather wherever I need to check!
  • Radar is useless

    By Sparky00001
    I have several wx apps and this one is the most useless of the bunch. Radar shows mostly black boxes and zoom detail is non existent - even where the areas are not blacked out. How could anyone rate this app #1? Total waste of $4 and my time. Zero stars not an option so it’s gets 1 with prejudice.

    I have gone through so many different weather apps, some of them were okay, but most of them I hated the setup. This app however has an amazing and convenient layout in addition to accurate weather predictions right down to the minute. I would recommend this app to anyone and everyone, for we all have to deal with weather every day. Love the app! Keep it up!
  • Weather or not...

    Great app tells you what you want to know, excellent interface and crowdsourcing from your mobile just in case all their other data sources are wrong. Apple Watch app could be better. iOS app just about perfect!
