Dark Sky Weather
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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.
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.
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.
What's New in Version 5.3.0
- Fix for Widget layout issue in iOS 11
- Fix for complication reloading issue on Apple Watch
- Misc other small things and whatsits.
Apple Watch App Broken
I thought they might have finally fixed this, nearly a year later, because they say they did in the release notes. No they didn’t. The complication still just shows their logo and not the actual temperature. This has carried over from my Series 2 to a new Series 3 watch, so it’s not the watch. It’s a good app for the iPhone, though.
The iPhone app is excellent, and the Apple Watch app used to be, but has been broken since December 2016. Starting with an update at that time, the complication no longer shows the temp, but just the Dark Sky logo (intermittently). At the time, I emailed asking them about it, and they said they were working on it and asked me to be patient. I really would have thought that they could have sorted it out by now, so I have lost patience. The lack of the complication really reduces the value of the app. If you don't have an Apple Watch, get this app. If you do, and want to use this on the watch, then you may want to give it a pass until they finally do fix the complication issue.
Absolutely love it
Love it. The weather predictions are pretty much spot on with the timeline. The weather map is amazing. Overall a great app.
The only downfall is that the Apple Watch app still has some quirks. Even after the recent update it still fails to load weather on the main complication and takes a while to load weather once you tap into the app. Really hope it gets better soon as it’s my favorite weather app. Even with the Apple Watch issues I still use this more than the stock weather app.
Constant Problem with Apple Watch
There’s no option for opening a support ticket through the app, so I’m bringing this issue to your attention this way. Data never syncs to my Apple watch (which is the only reason I bought the app). The first couple months of using this app was great; the data would sync to the watch and give me real-time updates as well as a constant weather feed. Now it just takes up space on my watch home screen. I’ve tried uninstalling/reinstalling, I’ve tried resetting the watch all together, nothing works. Please fix this dysfunction.
