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.



  • Not the app it used to be

    By LB in Chicago
    This app has been changed significantly from its glory years. Complete redesign means it’s not the app I paid for. Disappointing to say the least.
  • Best Weather App I’ve Used

    By Kariboulou21
    This app is spot on for my location, at least. It has it down to the T and notifies me when its raining, snowing, and when any other weather related issues are going on. It also notifies me when its stopping, which is helpful when you spend 8+ hours per day inside at work and have to try and predict whether to bring an umbrella or not. Great app!
  • Kills battery and privacy

    By Jedt
    Requiring an app to use location services always is ridiculous. Without using the ‘always’ setting on location services the app does not function correctly. This is a privacy and battery issue. This would be a good app if it wasn’t required to use location services always.
  • Issue on Apple Watch

    By sohovik
    While I love the app with my iPhone, the Apple Watch complication is acting up. More often than not, when I tap on the complication, I get a black screen. Sometimes it loads, and sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes rebooting the watch will do the trick. I have tried uninstalling as well, but it doesn't fix the issue. Just wanted the devs to be aware of it!
  • Complication doesn't show correct weather

    By CompSciProf
    I used to like this app and used it both in my Apple Watch and phone. However, the Apple Watch app crashes or does not update and the forecast icons consistently do not represent the weather for that day.
  • Terrible UI

    By AGrandFL
    The current weather view is extremely difficult to use. Little black dots and 90% white space tell me nothing about the weather today. Even if the information is relatively accurate it is useless if the viewer cannot quickly understand it. Dark Sky, I wasted my money, so now I just use the National Weather Service web site.
  • No customer service

    By Bobthesuper
    This isn’t bad app, parts are very good. I download it because I heard the Apple Watch app was good, and it tries to be but there are issues. I’ve tried to contact support, twice, and nothing. Maybe it’s because I have the free version but I’m not going to pay them so I can suggest something that may make the app better.
  • A So So Weather App after trying it yet again

    By razdad1
    ** Past or recent inaccuracies with the weather forecast conditions and predictions - have improved some. ** Location or GPS tracking updates are not working on phone or Apple Watch. ** I 100% agree with many others concerning this apps appearance and theme - it’s just terrible!! Please reconsider the color combinations and especially that of the radar! You are only setting a trend of frustration for the majority of us who had enjoyed this app. Please get back to making this great app great again!!!

    Honestly, why? It’s been reviewed many times here, but obviously you devs want or think the new version of this app is better, and ‘easier’ for us.. who purchase this, is more to ‘our’ liking. Not so. It’s just my personal opinion, but this is harder to understand than the older version. And that’s why I’ll never update. It was better before. And I will ask not to take this review down as to tarnish prospective people from purchasing this disaster. Just my opinion, like everyone else giving a Review...
  • Great forecasting, odd visual design

    By Valles2x
    While a decent app, ultimately unsatisfying for a paid app with odd visual presentation. For instance, it’s confusing to see an upcoming day has a 63% chance of precip, although the hourly circles indicating precip probability for that same day only reach 20% at any given hour. I find the next 24 hour feature a pointless waste of screen real estate—I can discern between the remander of today and tomorrow on my own without the clutter. I also wish the ability to select a precise location off of the map existed-it does not. Good weather, but some things just need a concept of simple, yet effective visual aesthetics applied. Probably would not have purchased if I had a real preview, but that’s how they get you...
