Dark Sky Weather App

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. 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. 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.

Dark Sky Weather app reviews

  • Future radar 4/5

    By Jason Voss
    I would like to see the radar go past now into future like it does on android
  • Love Dark Sky 5/5

    By Datatatar
    The representations are brilliant.
  • Better & Better 5/5

    By iMac-2
    The more I’ve come to use it since acquiring Dark Sky a few weeks ago, the more I’ve come to appreciate all its features. A new resident of western Mass., I rely on its telling me how much snow to expect over nite and what the temperature was, is, & is predicted to be. If there is to be snow & ice in the morning, I’ll stick something under the windshield wipers of my car to keep them from getting stuck to the windows—expensive to replace them.
  • Off by 15 degrees 1/5

    By park-row
    I live in Southern CA (93436) so not a Grey need for the rain forecast. Mainly got this for the small size but so far it's given morning temps off by about 15 degrees compared to other major weather apps. For example it is about mid/high 30's according to WU, Weather Channel, Yahoo, and Apple. This app says it's 54, and feels like 54. It definitely dies NOT feel like 50s. And it's been the same case for multiple days since I got the app. Maybe this is good at predicting rain, but it's a complete waste of money for me.
  • I HOpe 5/5

    By Quang17789
    I hope the developer support multilanguages(Vietnammese) and fix in apple watch
  • Relentless pop up about location services 3/5

    By Biddhaz
    My go-to weather app. Clean, interface. Bonus points for the toggle switch to disable Google Analytics. -2 stars for the relentless pop up message to turn on location services... Open app. Lag. Pop up about location services. Tap Cancel. Have to tap my city which is a tiny tiny row in a list. App finally works as it should by default. Repeat this sequence every day. Rate app 3 stars out of frustration.
  • Love the radar 4/5

    By Blake W
    Thank you developer, looking forward to updates
  • So so. 3/5

    By Jacob699
    After seeing the maps on the web site for wind speeds and temperatures I was pretty excited. However after downloading the app for IOS they were not available. Only precipitation and a color coded temp map. Not nearly as useful
  • Mediocre 3/5

    By riptide74
    The app is beautiful, but the reports and forecasts are perpetually inaccurate. Not sure it’s worth paying for in contrast to some of the other free apps.
  • Fails on the Apple Watch 1/5

    By kirkmc
    Well this works fine on the iPhone, it has failed on the Apple Watch since the release of watchOS 4. It tells me, on the Apple Watch, to toggle off and then on a certain setting, but that never fixes it. Apparently this is a common enough problem that have seen people talk about this on forums, yet the developer doesn’t seem to have figured out how to fix it.
  • . 5/5

    By mikebadseed1982
    The app prompts me to set my location to “Always” whenever I open it. It never used to do this until recent updates, started maybe about three weeks ago. I can live with it, but it’s a really annoying pop-up. I don’t want any app to always have my location, even if it’s for the beneficial use of other users. I’m pretty sure it used to work fine when I just had my location services for this app set to “while using.” Other than that, excellent app. I’d really appreciate it if you fixed this.
  • Is truth! 5/5

    By Hawaiifun
    This app is seriously the best weather app. It even tells you when the drizzle or rain will begin and also when it will end. It’s great! I love this app. I love that you can plug in different cities/areas and it will show the temperature for that specific area and if there is sun, wind, clouds, or rain. The 7 day forecast is fantastic too. Helps with planning certain activities. Great app!!
  • iPhone X support not designed well 2/5

    By RayRCircle
    Bad placement of timeline in Precipitation/Temperature view. Trying to scrub through the days to see the Precipitation on the iPhone X toggles the Home Indicator which switches apps when swiped left or right.
  • Very useful app 5/5

    By Attygm
    Unless I need a radar map, which is rare, this is the weather app I use most. Does its job quickly and well.
  • Great app 5/5

    By EIOR
    Great app for tracking weather at your location minute by minute. Gets the weather spot on. Forget the tv weather guy. This app works great. Give it a try, you will like it.
  • Dark Sky is not hyper local 1/5

    By SkiandRun
    App doesn’t match the temp of my weather station. It takes the temp from about 10 miles away. Dark Sky has a difficult time knowing the difference between rain and snow, or no precipitation at all. Basically an over hyped weather app. With no real proof from the developers that is actually does work.
  • What’s happening? 1/5

    By KKM777
    I used to enjoy using Dark Sky. Lately every time I open it, it brings up the home screen and then closes again. It’s been unusable. I’ve deleted the app from my phone and downloaded it again and it’s hasn’t fixed it. I’m not sure what’s wrong with it but it’s disappointing.
  • Crashes on the X 4/5

    By Flopdog
    Absolutely adore Dark Sky ....I have been using it for years. Just got the iPhone X (11.2) and the app crashes every time I try to launch it. please update! Thanks...
  • Keeps crashing 1/5

    By SurrealNYC
    Hey Dark Sky! The app has been crashing for months without an update! I guess you’ve given up! The app keeps crashing on launch. iPhone X with Apple Watch extension and complication installed.
  • Wholly annoying popup has been introduced 1/5

    By nudels
    I have to continually at the start of use, over and over, tell this app ‘no i dont want notifications’. Over and over and over and over, this should be a set and forget but it constantly asks over and over and over for me to turn on a feature (that i do not want to turn on!), OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN! ANNOYING!!!!
  • Does not work on iPhone X or Watch 1/5

    By CJIthaca25
    Latest update constantly crashes on iPhone X and the Watch complication does not update.
  • Falling behind on the Apple Watch 2/5

    By LordBleen
    The complication on the Apple Watch used to be great showing temperature and rain status. Since watchOS 4.1 it only displays the dark sky icon. Very disappointing for the app not being kept up.
  • Does not work on Iphone 8 Plus 1/5

    By Kirmool
    The app crash every single time I open it on Iphone 8 plus. It also doesn’t matter if its opened from the widget or open from the app.
  • When it works, it’s great! But..... 3/5

    By tinaterrific
    Over the past several months this app has been crashing a second after opening it. What a disappointment because I do like the app when it is working properly. It’s really irritating to try to get the weather and have it crash every time. Please work on this bug!
  • Needs work 4/5

    By netmate
    Lately crashes on startup on iPhone X
  • Used to love this app, doesn’t work on iPhone X 1/5

    By KatieMc2529
    On my iPhone 6, this app was one of my favorite purchases. Specifically for snow forecasts, knowing the predicted inches and when it would start within the hour was perfect for me. Unfortunately since I upgraded to the iPhone X last week this app will not open. I have tried updating it, deleting and reinstalling, restarting my phone, and still no success. The app crashes and will not open on iPhone X.
  • Apple watch complication not updating 1/5

    By nycqns983
    The apple watch complication has not need updating for months.... Is there a way to fix this? I have tried reinstalling.... Location services are turned on... What can I do? The complication is tge main reason I purchased the app.
  • iPhone X bug 3/5

    By Ryankore
    I love this app but I have updated to the iPhone X and the bottom of the radar screen I cannot slide left to right for the time increase/decrease. The multitasking white bar is at the bottom, so I can’t slide the time along without the multitasking gesture happening.
  • Most accurate app out there 5/5

    By Clayton01746
    You can’t get anything better than Dark Sky when it comes to weather apps. It’s easy to use unbelievably accurate and alerts you minutes before any kind of precipitation begins.
  • Great app, but not for iPhone X 2/5

    By Space Ace
    Love the app, but the interface is not functional for the iPhone X. Needs an update so the bottom controls can be used.
  • Amazing app 5/5

    By Guys yolo
    Is app is amazing to have and is accurate
  • Totally stunned. Best weather app of all time. 5/5

    By The_Walrus_Slayer
    I don't typically write reviews, but wow!! The interface, the weather accuracy to mere minutes, this is truly a 10/10 app. One of the only. I've been pushing to limit my wasteful time on my iPhone, and instead use my phone on a productivity basis, and this app absolutely is the best weather app for that purpose. This app is not catered to everyone's preferences, but for me, there really could not be a better app as it specializes in telling you information for where you are at, which for most people is what's most important. The only thing that would be nice would be personalized color themes, but dang this app gets the job done I won't even call it a con. Thanks devs for the app! Try it for yourself and if you take 10 minutes to learn it, it will as surely as possible be your favorite weather app!
  • Amazing 5/5

    By CucuvugivicucjzykTdo
    Definitely worth the money.👍
  • Not working with watchOS 4.2 1/5

    By arrioland
    After I updated my Apple Watch to watchOS 4.2 this app stopped working properly. Fix it please!
  • Incorrect 2/5

    By Kitkatsbat
    Well, while the app is cool, the information is incorrect. My Apple Watch shows the wrong temp and the forecast isn’t correct either. Waste of money it seems...
  • Excellent data 4/5

    By ShowMeEtz
    The information that I get on this app is usually spot on. I've thing I wish it would do is to update as I move from place to place. I have to open the app for it to update, even if I have location always set.
  • Crashes on opening 3/5

    By MyAppReviewer
    Please fix
  • Excellent iOS app, not excellent Apple Watch app 3/5

    By Skeptical25
    This app was recommended to me as a powerhouse weather app. It is. But the Apple Watch complications for this do not regularly update. So my weather info on 1st glance at my watch is wrong. Background app refresh is on. I expected the Apple Watch features to work better on this luxurious paid weather app than the free weather apps I have, not worse.
  • Great app. Crashing upon open iPhone X 3/5

    By Matt Bouncer
    Love this app for years. Now I have an iPhone X. Latest iOS. Latest app version. App crashes upon opening each time. Reset the phone and still crashes.
  • Love this app!! Thoroughl 5/5

    By pebz13
    I really like this app. I think they've done a great job. It is as if they have taken the weather apps and turned them into a graphic display of intellect. You will just have to see for yourself. Only downside: consumes a lot of battery and memory.
  • Crashes on iPhone X 1/5

    By JLearman74
    Opens for about 1 second, then crashes on iPhone X running iOS 11.2.
  • Could be better, but still good. 3/5

    The app overall works well. The map animations are great and the information is almost always accurate down to the minute. My complaint, however is that the app itself is mundane and dull. I would hope that a $5 app would at least include animations of the weather or any color that isn’t neutral. Again, the app works well, and many would say that I paid for the service, not the way it looks, which I suppose is true to a degree. Also, the widget acts unusually on an iPhone 7 running iOS 11. when you expand or minimize the widget it will not correctly display info or the window for the app will enlarge, but the extra space will just be empty without any more context. Update: The widget issue has been fixed. However, I would still like to see some vibrancy included in the app’s design.
  • Not as accurate as it might be. 3/5

    By Davebtwo
    We are having a wind storm as I write. It is not much for other places. Here in the Central Sierra of Ca. at about 3000 feet, winds are 25-30 with gusts to 50 mph. This app says the wind is 7mph and decreasing at night goes on. There must a better app.
  • Rating 5/5

    By islandm2946
    Working again!! Someone must have read my review, thanks
  • Accurate 5/5

    By Ccarrcomm
    Love this App! I cannot say enough! Always the most accurate way to get the weather forecast!
  • annoying pop up “To work properly notifications require backgrounds....” 3/5

    By Darthvader9
    The app pops up a message that it would like to have background data on for notifications every time i open the app and this is annoying even after i disable the notifications as mentioned in the pop up.Please fix this folks may pnly want the app to use background cellular data when they open the app to conserver battery. And because of this popup i am forced to do 3 clicks every time i open the app and it is ruining the user experience. Please fix this in the next update.
  • Doesn’t work. 1/5

    By Stev-o0724
    I bought this app for the notifications which don’t work at all.
  • Best 5/5

    By shoney369
    No complaints. 👍🏻
  • Wrong information 1/5

    By HughV
    About 2 years ago, this app was incredible. It accurately reported current and predicted future weather. I really could use it to know if I needed an umbrella or not and I can’t remember it was ever wrong. Over the past year though that has changed. It reports that rain is stopping when there is no rain and tells me there is going to be rain and it never appears. In short I no longer trust it because it is wrong so often.
  • Dark mode 4/5

    By Hushero
    I hope you can offer Dark mode option. It will be highly appreciated by iPhone X users with the gorgeous OLED screen. Thanks!
