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 4.3.3
- Fixes a bug where the app would repeatedly nag you to turn on Location Services. We don't need your location if you don't want to provide it. Sorry about that!
- Fixes a bug in the Apple Watch version... Yes. Yes, that's right... We're fixing a problem in a version of the app none of us can even use yet.
Weather forecasts are tough
The forecast isn’t perfect but it is very good which is more than I can say about radio & TV’s efforts.
The biggest thing Dark Sky brings (IMO) is a reasonable forecast for rural areas which other forecast providers don’t even try to address. This is particularly useful when you live in the coastal range where the weather really varies a lot over just a few miles.
The most accurate Weather App out there
This is by far the most accurate weather app that I have tried. Most would be happy coming close to this one. It will tell you before it will start to snow or rain and how long it will go on and it is accurate. Love the ability to change location by tapping the address on top.
The Perfect Weather App!
This app is insanely accurate. It has predicted rain, storms, etc. The app said it would rain heavily in 20 minutes and in exactly that amount of time to the minute it began to rain. Definitely worth the purchase. You won't be disappointed! 5/5 stars. I would make one request and that's to maybe add different background colors.
