Absolutely love it 4/5
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.
Please fix the widget! 3/5
The widget still doesn't show anything even after the update. It just has an "Unable to Load" text in the center.
Widget problem on iOS 10 1/5
By Javad Abdollahi
I really like the app but don't like using my location and I want to see the forcast for the specifc location wihout using GPS, but when I want to see the forcast on the widget only an umbrella icon is shown in the middle of the widget and nothing. Fix this pls.
Current Temp no displayed on watch 3/5
By No Zillow
My apple watch does not display current temperature. I believe it did maintain a current temp display until IOS 11. Other than this the app is great.
0 Stars — Fix complication - Gone! 1/5
I installed on iPhone 6+ and Watch but now the complication is GONE, despite all troubleshooting efforts — Also is the “ALWAYS” location option.
Watch app won’t download 2/5
I got this, but the apple watch app won’t download. I’ve tried reinstalling it 4 times with no luck. It’s a shame, the main app is so nice.
The Best Weather App... 5/5
The best weather app period!
Great App With a few Rough Edges 3/5
This is a nice, responsive app that gets you exactly the info you need. The push alerts work great and I’ve yet to see it get stuck, unable to load current conditions like practically every other weather app.
As of now I only have 1 problem:
Bug (reported, no response yet, latest update didn’t fix): the Today widget grows in size every time you resize it. Good if all you care about is the weather! Bad if you use other widgets.
Edit: The radar map starts zoomed out to the whole globe normally. It does zoom in when there is local weather, though, so I can live with that compromise.
Not worth the price. Way overrated. 2/5
By The Runaway Robot
After reading good reviews for years I finally spent the $ and bought this after MyCast, then RadarCast, went belly up. While the layout is somewhat clever and attractive in its simplicity, there are very few features - far fewer than all my other apps (and I have most weather apps) - and what info there is isn't that accurate and is sometimes wildly inaccurate. There is also very little control of what features exist via Settings. Further, there's mention in the app description or a user review of webcam views or shots that, alone, make it worth the cost. I certainly don't have that feature in mine and I paid full price. There's a weather app, Climendo, that rates the accuracy of all other weather apps. The regular winner of that is Wunderground. I suggest that for accuracy, and it has many more features, more controllable, than this, tho the radar is its weak point. Best radar app is Storm, tho their new version isn't nearly as good as the old version. New version is produced by Weather Channel. Old Storm was produced by Wunderground before they were bought out by Weather Channel. There used to be so many more good weather apps in the App Store. But Apple's continual OS changes cost the smaller, innovative developers too much to keep up with and so they've fallen by the wayside & we're left with the behemoth developer apps that are far less creative and responsive to users. They're just advertising platforms with a gauze of glitzy but inaccurate features. Their source info is available free from the federal government sites and kept up to the minute better there. If you want truly accurate weather info, kept up-to-the-minute, buy a good aviation app. They must be accurate for aviation safety. Make sure it includes a "terminal area forecast" (TAF). That feature will let you know what ~really~ to expect. Aviation apps may not be presented as fancy but the info will be up-to-date & accurate. Maybe Dark Sky was good in the past, but if some editor made it his choice he doesn't know much about weather and weather apps. Go elsewhere for yours. This app is definitely overpriced and under-featured.
Don’t waste your money 1/5
Very inaccurate. Missed significant rain forecasts two weekends in a row. No better than any free weather app.
Think positive even though this is negative 2/5
By Ian LeMasters
So I’ve had this app for my watch for almost a year. I don’t find it to be that accurate. And yesterday it completely stopped working on my watch complication. I’ve deleted and reinstalled it with no luck.
Unfortunately the info provided on the complication is hardly ever correct. I will be deleting this and trying something else for now. I’ll try again in the future, but for now I’m pretty disappointed. All in all. Wasted money.
Great app. Miss the frequent precip notifications 4/5
My favorite weather app ever but compared to a year ago the alerts have become less frequent and thus not very reliable. Otherwise this is a crazy awesome app!!
So nice living in FL to have a pre rain/drizzle warnings. Accuracy is awesome!
I got lucky when I downloaded this for app for free many moons ago, definitely would recommend, works great.
After 5 years I can confidently say 5/5
By Songs of the Sanderosa
I love this app. Does everything I want it to do, consistently. If I need weather from another city I use Yahoo, but this the best completely local weather app I’ve found.
Delivers as advertised! 5/5
I live on one of the Great Lakes. We have frequent weather drama with sudden changes. I’ve tested dark sky when changes occurred every 25 minutes: Dark Sky stayed right on it! Walk the dog now? Just check with this app!
It just works 5/5
Awesome app, BUT 5/5
This app is by far the most accurate weather app I’ve ever used and definitely worth the money. There is one thing, however, that I wish would be added. The ability to view the radar for the future. In other apps I’m able to view the radar for up to 48 hours past the current time. This would be a nice feature.
Best Weather App Hands Down!! 5/5
Not only is this the best looking weather app but also the best functioning and easy to use. It’s so accurate when it alerts me that rain is coming in the next 3 minutes or ending in 30 minutes. My entire family loves this app and it’s probably one of the few apps we have ever paid for. Just buy it!
Dark Sky 4/5
Easy to use, correct most of the time!
Most useful weather app 5/5
By Bruce A2
I consult this every day, and, when I plan to be outdoors, almost every hour. It gives fairly accurate information, especially in the short run, as to the likelihood of local precipitation. The format is austere and deeply helpful. An invaluable app.
Very useful 5/5
By The Angry Bot
Much better than regular weather apps, gives much more precise information in an accessible format. Looks nice to boot.
Great help 5/5
I use this app every day. Convenient, reliable, accurate. Amazingly helpful & useful.
Love its simplicity 5/5
and able to view quickly. It's my "go to" weather app. Elegant without unwrapping. Then when you begin pressing areas/words, more info slides open for those who like details.
For times with life is so cluttered, Dark Sky can relax your mind when you know a drizzle is on its way.
Keeps a nice search history of locations for when you're needing weather information while traveling.
Simple, sleek, timely, and works with Apple Watch as a complication.
Best-ever app, but ..... 3/5
... the app has been in a slump of late. It has it raining in 5 minutes when there isn’t a cloud in the sky and I’m seeing next-day forecasts that aren’t even close to accurate — those have been not-too-rare occurrences lately. It had been utterly flawless for more than a year and I must have turned on more than 50 folks to this app. But something is amiss these days and I’m sad about it.
Superb weather app. 5/5
Accurate hour by hour forecasts are just perfect for what I need. Simple user interface. No useless blather. Can’t beat it.
Great app 5/5
I don’t write many reviews - but this app is worth the money.
Amazingly accurate 5/5
I’ve loved dark sky for years! Easy to use super, accurate! Forget those other want to be weather apps!!
Dark Sky Review 5/5
By Mighty Little
Excellent app. Spot on weather forecasting. Dependable with an interesting good map function. Accurate hurricane forecasting
Needs an update 3/5
While I enjoy the app I feel it needs something new now. Also, the widget is totally broken with iOS 11.
iOS 11 widget and Apple Watch 3/5
I used to rely on dark sky as my weather app. Since iOS 11, the widget has unpredictable behavior (tapping “show less” doesn’t actually collapse the widget and the tapping show more expands the widget far beyond the content) and the Apple Watch face complication has stopped updating (it now just displays the dark sky icon)
I want to love the app, but these two issues are annoying to no end.
For now, I use the standard Apple weather complication and I use 3D Touch on the phones stock apple weather app.
Hoping for an update soon.
Best weather complication for watch 5/5
While it provides good weather information so do others. Where Dark Sky stands out for me is in it’s complication for the watch, not only showing current temp and forecast but next sunrise or next sunset which ever is next.
The importance of Wind 5/5
Dark Sky gives wind speed and direction data.
Our house right now has wildfires to the west and to the east. It’s reassuring and vital information to see hourly reports on wind speed and direction. So far the wind has not shifted in the direction of our house.
So far so good!
Great app 5/5
By Noah 3988
Amazing app, works great. I love the layout and design. Functionality is amazing as well. Overall amazing app
Simple and accurate with regular support, this is everything you could ask for in a weather app. Great job Dark Sky team, keep it simple and working as well as you have!
Excellent App 5/5
By far the most detailed and beautiful precise weather to your location that keeps getting better over time. Keep up the great work and updates coming.
Timely & Accurate 5/5
Dark Sky gives me accurate weather wherever I am. I couldn't ask for more.
Magical app. So accurate and very helpful.
Better than all other weather apps 5/5
I've tried several. I like how accurate and simple this is to use. Love the global view!
Love this app 5/5
By Kenzo Ferrari
This is a very accurate weather app. I like the daily forecast and the alerts.
Best weather forecast 5/5
Spot on and amazing accuracy!
It's good 5/5
It just is
It’s the Best 5/5
Get it. Just get it. Seriously. Do it. Now.
No longer worth the money 3/5
When I first bought this app, I thought it worked really well. In the past few months, however, it has not been accurate at all. It’s hardly worth opening the app to check the weather because I know it will be wrong. The weather app that comes with iPhone has been much more accurate these past months, and that app is notoriously awful!
This Weather App Rocks 5/5
Exactly what one needs without the clutter and advertising... A new a better way to get your weather info.
Every day necessity 5/5
If Puritans were still around, this app would be accused of witchcraft. It's accurate and down to the minute, and it's an app I use every day.
Simply The Best 5/5
Been using this app since first released. My go-to weather app on phone and watch. So well designed: simple, beautiful, intuitive, and accurate—just like Apple products. Just got back from two weeks touring in England where it performed superbly, allowing us to manage rain events and our car touring.
Probably my favorite weather app. Always very accurate.
Could use some color 4/5
By ski bum87
The whole app is basically black and white with some blue font here and there
Not A Fan 3/5
I don't write a lot of reviews. What prompted this one is I was about to leave for the day and wondered if the rain was going to hold off. While looking at the open app, I see my correct address at the top, and while I begin to hear raindrops falling on the roof, I read "no rain for the next hour". And... I paid for that information.
UPDATE: This one still hasn't improved. Today, it showed it was going to train all day. It finally sprinkled late in the afternoon. I do wish the developers would fix this app. It used to be more dependable.
