Dark Sky - Weather Radar, Hyperlocal Forecasts, and Storm Alerts
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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-to-minute predictions for the next hour and detailed 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 can send you an alert before it starts raining at your exact location. Even if you haven't opened the app in days, Dark Sky will know when you're in the path of a storm.
The Dark Sky Notification Center Widget tells you at a glance what's going to happen in the next hour, 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 five days with the Dark Sky app built from scratch for Apple Watch.
What's New in Version 4.3.4
This one's a tiny little update:
1) Tweaks to the Today Widget (it now shows actual temperature rather than Feels-Like temperature, and I've removed the "Open in Dark Sky" button since everyone knows you can just tap the widget to launch the app).
2) Apple Watch bug fixes.
Fast loading widget
When it comes to a widget all I really want to know is if it will rain, and what it feels like outside. With the latest update the actual temp is supposed to be displayed in the widget, though it's still showing the "feels like" temp. I'm ok with that, though if I could really have my way I'd like both to be included.
The app itself is fine. I like the simple style, but it's not anything that wows me. The accuracy is pretty good though. Overall that's the reason I use the app, so I'm giving it 5 stars.
Love the app a lot! It's very nice! However I have some suggestions! First would be to push different notifications. It only sends me notifications when it starts raining. You should add different tiers it can send based on how hard it rains and when it stops. Also it would be nice if the map showed precipitation when you moved it with your finger instead of it only showing when it is still. I am on iPhone 6 by the way.
Great app! By far the most useful weather app and widget in the AppStore!
However, with the last update they took away the "feels like" temperature and replaced it with the actual temperature. I preferred the feels like temperature better because it may be 75 outside but feel like 87 and I may want to dress a little differently for that. Or it may be 7 degrees outside but feel like -15 like many times this winter.
Disappointed they took this away but still love the app!
