Missing functionality to change locations on Apple Watch 4/5
Really great app, but missing functionality to change locations on Apple Watch. Limited to current location only.
Can’t delete History, It comes back! 1/5
It comes back after you delete the history. What a horrible bug, i can’t believe this is rated top in the App Store. Why?
They Blew It 1/5
Used to be the best; almost always right with useful data easily available. After the “upgrade” it has become useless. No where near as much info as free apps offer and just cumbersome to navigate.
Deleted the app.
Sweet app, just need a dark mode! 4/5
I will gladly give that fifth star if they can give us a dark mode. The light mode is too bright for me.
Please please let me go back to old graphics. So much easier to get a quick impression. The new site is busy and uninteresting. Wish I had not upgraded.
1) Poor weather accuracy.
2) No dark theme
Font too small. 1/5
App was great. After update it is now unusable by me. Just not possible to read info anymore.
Wrong. Every time. 2/5
By Fan of Gladwell
Dark sky notification hour and a half ago said snow was stopping. We’ve gotten almost an inch since then.
Great App 5/5
This app is amazing. I really like everything from its design to the notifications. The Apple Watch app is also amazing. The only request I have is that the corner complications on the info graph showed condition and temperature like they do on other watch faces. It is hard to get the actually temperature from the range bar. Or if possible have the corners display temperature and the sub dials display condition. Thanks!
If this app were any less accurate, it would tell me a hurricane was forming over Oklahoma. 3/5
I always liked this app and it was always reasonably accurate for me. Till this weekend. I’m getting 8-12 inches of snow? Not only did that not happen, I got zero snow. And it was so certain that after each hour passed, it still said I was getting snow. Just a lower amount. Till the rain stopped. Now no snow. I know that snow amounts was a new update about two weeks ago but maybe it needs to be rethought because it wasn’t just a little wrong, it was completely wrong.
What the $&!? happened?? 1/5
This app used to look great and have the perfect UI. Yeah they fixed that. Now it’s this boring unintuitive and uninspired interface that looks like a half-baked knockoff. Bring the old UI back, why on earth fix what not only wasn’t broken but what was unique and great??!! Like, I’m legitimately disappointed by this shift. Someone got paid to make the app worse, that kind of blows my mind...
Don't trust it 1/5
Woke up to driving snow. Dark sky says heavy rain. It has been pinging me with alerts over the last two weeks about "0 accumulation" snow events but in the lead up to this storm, nothing (and even said it was raining long after the snow started). I'm now going back to apps that don't promise minute by minute precision but at least get the forecast right.
Good app bad widget 2/5
I’ve changed units to celsius in the app, but widget is still in fahrenheit.
Great app, terrible redesign 4/5
What a shame! This app was one of my favorites for years and recommended it to everyone. It still provides the info you need but in a less intuitive and worse UI. Classic case of designing to death. Please go back to the old one and keep the new functionality (or at least offer the “classic” view).
Needs better ui improvements 3/5
Needs dark theme or option to be able to go back to old ui. Font too small.
Best third party weather app available! 4/5
... however there’s no dark mode?
Doesn’t work in mountainous area. Purchased one hour ago. Big mistake. Will they refund??? 1/5
This app is not functional in a mountainside urban area. Hope they have integrity enough to refund, uninstalling as one hour was enough to discover and totally discouraged at the claims made. The concept and the reality in difficult terrain do not mesh. It is probably a good app for most; however there are exceptions, this is one. A mountain area heavily developed is not the place for this app.
Please add a Dark Mode 5/5
It’s too darn bright! Please, please, PLEASE add Dark Mode!!!
Next hour:Unavailable (no radar coverage) 2/5
What a bummer. I purchased this app only for the next hour prediction feature , unfortunately it’s not available in any city that I live in or I plan to visit.
Waaaaay off the mark 1/5
I’m not sure where Dark Sky is getting its weather data for the Seattle area, but it’s not from Seattle. The temperatures and forecasts have been way off, sometimes 10-15 degrees lower with near term predictions of snow and ice. The app is essentially useless for me. Tried to contact support several times never received a response. So if you’re willing to roll the dice and see if the forecast data you receive is actually for your area have at it. If the developers happen to read this, you deserve the poor review for poor customer service.
Bring back the Design 4/5
I agree with some of the reviewers that are a bit nostalgic towards the previous design. I have installed it just because of the design and simplicity. Now it looks more like every other weather app out there that is overloaded with bunch of kids drawn style icons. Design design design. I miss that, thus a 4 star review.
Says rain data is unavailable and that’s like the one thing this app is supposed to do.
Geolocation for this app is terrible. 1/5
I live in the USA and it had me out in the North Pacific Ocean. It constantly has me 10 miles out from where I live in the widget as well. The coding has gone to hell on this app. I wouldn’t mind a refund to be honest.
Needs Dark Mode 4/5
Best weather app to use. Please bring dark mode over to iOS. The Android version has it and I miss the dark mode especially with an OLED display.
Poor performing predictions and update 1/5
It’s been raining for 2 hours at my location and it’s saying mostly cloudy. The wether was predicted to be cloudy sunny in my area but it has been raining all day. I think their analysis and predictions are faulty. Get the weather channel app!
Please give us dark mode 5/5
I would even be willing to an in app purchase to get dark mode. Please?
Only thing missing is detailed radar with better looking animations
UI Redesign is awful 1/5
The new UI is terrible. The original appeal was the minimalist design of the app, now it just looks like everything else.
Like others said, it’s busy and a bit tough to decipher some of the features. The forecast changes frequently and doesn’t seem as accurate as the stock weather app.
No customer service 1/5
I had to write two time for Eric Straight customer support if only to get “open notifications” nothing more I wanted to receive wind notifications but when I tried to open notifications like Eric said I 5 words or less? Very Poor Customer Service. It wouldn’t open dah?
Please please just because some dope head give this app a great review follow my lips this program is worth less! Don’t buy!
Ps I am waiting for the Forth request but because I gave dark sky a poor rating may the dark sky’s go penny less!!
Inaccurate as heck 2/5
I don’t get why this app is so highly praised. I’ve been running it for over two months now and it’s almost never accurate. I’m looking out my window right now and it’s practically a blizzard. DarkSky says, I kid you not, “light rain”. I wish I could put the screenshot of this app on my phone and a picture of the blizzard in this review just to showcase this. The stock weather app on my iPhone has it right with snow.
I wish I could get my money back on this app.
Also it needs a dark theme. It’s called DARK Sky after all.
Unreliable and Disappointing 2/5
Like the functionality and the design... too bad the forecast doesn’t match at all. It’s been snowing on and off all day without showing anything in the forecast or so much as a glimpse on the radar. Also super disappointed in the radar itself. There’s no key to figure out what different colors could indicate for this app, and you can’t zoom in anywhere near as close as most weather apps. Wish it would at least pick up on precipitation as it’s happening.
Not working in Philippines 1/5
Buy the App two days ago and it’s not working here in Clark, Philippine. When it’s rains and the app does not indicate it. 😞
Loved it until they redesigned it. 3/5
This was my favorite weather app because of it's elegance and beauty.
Now, they've completely redesigned it, and it's busy, and really no different from any other weather app. I'm disappointed, and I've cancelled my subscription until they get back to a better UX. I don't know if the app was sold to another company or something but whoever is doing UX design right now doesn't seem to understand what made this app so popular.
Go back to old look or issue update 2/5
Interface and formatting changes are terrible. Was a die hard DarkSky fan but switching to different weather app, will switch back once improvements are made.
Was previously easy to quickly glance at information and now looks like MS-DOS.
No longer anything special 1/5
This app WAS such a great example of merging design and functionality perfectly. It was visually beautiful in a way none of the other weather apps were.
Now, it’s average at best. I hate the new design and functionality. It looks like a poorly designed mock up for a pitch meeting or someone’s weather app from coding school. It’s just awful on the eyes.
Most of the time when I open the app now, the data screen is empty and needs to be reloaded. That never used to happen so clearly more than just the design is different.
Clearly somebody at the company was just trying to put their thumbprint on the project and decided to totally trash it. It’s too bad.
Inaccurate precipitation forecasts made the app unusable 1/5
This used to be the best weather app, hands down. Ever since the big update that significantly changed the look of the UI (which I actually like), the precipitation forecasts have become wildly inaccurate. I am experiencing the same issues another user mentioned in that the app consistently contradicts itself and changes it forecast.
Example 1, I will frequently receive a notification that it is about to rain in 15 minutes. I will then open the app of which hourly forecast gives no indication of rain and 9 times out of 10 there is none. So I had to turn notifications off. This feature used to be highly accurate in the older version.
Example 2, which is the most frustrating and the primary reason that I will no longer be relying on the app unless the issue is fixed. Let’s say I open up alternative weather app at 8am and it indicates 70% chance of showers every hour throughout the day (of which turns out to be completely accurate in hindsight at the end of the day). Then I open up DarkSky at 8am and it forecasts the rain to stop around 10am with very low chance to continue throughout the day. Now it’s 11am and it’s still raining. DarkSky now has changed it’s hourly forecast and indicates that the rain should stop by 1pm. Now it’s 3pm, still raining, DarkSky changes its forecast again etc etc you get the picture. AND THIS TYPE OF THING HAPPENS ALOT.
The new update has been out for several months now so I’m not very optimistic that these issues will be fixed. Here’s my forecast: the developer bails on this project and creates subscription based DarkSky2...yay
Waste of money 1/5
Can’t save more cities to your main screen beside your current location.. You have to do the search and can’t save it.
I want my money back now
Hate the new interface 2/5
I'm sad I paid money for this. It used to be border line worth it before the redesign. But it's pretty bad now. The daily temps are difficult to read. It's no more accurate than the free options. I just don't see the appeal. I'd rather use weatherbug or the weather underground. Just meh.
don't like the new look 3/5
I love DarkSky, but I'm not a fan of the new design. the colored, tiny icons are really difficult to read in the Today widget. the font is also slightly less readable I feel. also miss swiping between the hourly and daily views. why is everything so grey and chunky? :'(
Don’t pay for it...you’ll be disappointed. 1/5
Currently this app says 0% chance of rain with no precipitation on the radar for 100 miles from my address. It’s raining moderately. Not drizzle. Not mist. Rain. Puddling rain.
I’m piling on... 1/5
The new UI is such an embarrassment.
Here’s a lesson in how to take an A+ app and turn it into a dog.
Still Needs Work 2/5
I keep downloading this app several weeks after having deleted it.. hopeful that after the last improvements or updates that have occurred I will once again want to keep the app. I want to be able to brag about this app, its notifications and warnings of pending rain and snow etc. I just tried 6.1.4. The frustration is that it is not accurate. I was not receiving push notifications of pending rain or snow occurring in the next “x” amount of time etc. I had an experience with current conditions being of light snow all morning, yet the app showed current conditions partly cloudy. The temperature was accurate, but the current conditions were missing the mark by a lot! What made this frustrating is that this had never been an issue to this degree in the past. It was for this reason in the past that I enjoyed this app and would recommend it to others. While I can still say that this is not yet the 5 star app it was, I must recognize a 5 star effort from the developers and team attempting to address and correct these issues! I will also say that this last update has improved performance enough that I have chosen to keep the app again. I am hoping that continued, and still needed updates will further correct the remaining issues. Weather will never be a perfect scenario or science.. I am just looking for this app to be its best or more dialed in as it had been in the past!!
New version inaccurate 1/5
Today was the last straw with the new version. I am in 100% agreement with all all of the other comments on the colors or how poor the UI is. Now the forecasts can’t be trusted. Some days would have 89% chance of rain but the highest hourly chance was 50%. How is that possible. Now today is the dealbreaker. The daily summary showed a high today for my address of 41. Yet the actual forecast has it 51 at 4pm. I don’t know what to trust. Uninstalling the app and very much regretting my purchase.
Best weather app 5/5
By Vis Berg
Can’t fault this app - new update has a beautiful design and the weather is very accurate. This app should be on everyone’s home screen.
Thank you for snow accumulation 5/5
Adding snow accumulation was what made me delete all my other weather apps. This is the one thing I felt this app was missing. Thank you
New version requires a degree to navigate 1/5
I still can’t figure this out!
User Interface is Crap. 1/5
While the functionality is great it’s obvious to me that this app was not user tested. The old interface was mint. It worked well and was easy to use. The new interface makes no sense and most functions are buried or not easily accessed.
Redesign broke basic functionality 3/5
I generally just use the widget to get weather info, but ever since the redesign the widget says “Unable to load forecast” 8/10 times. There’s been numerous updates and it’s still broken. It would be nice if the features I payed for still worked properly.
