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

  • Lots of information displayed simply and effectively. 5/5

    By Pgatkinson
    If you don’t like the weather in Denver, wait 30 minutes. This app does a great job keeping up with sudden changes and is usually spot on for when bad weather is due to hit.
  • Used to be great 1/5

    By Kyle Buchler
    Dark sky was one of my favorite weather apps- until I bought an iPhone X. This app crashes constantly on iOS 11, which has made it somewhat unusable for me. The design of the app is great as ever, but this app is no longer stable. Time to move onto something else.
  • Where’s the iOS love? 1/5

    By sleepnclass
    Why don’t we have the android update?
  • Great local westher app 5/5

    By VenChar
    So far this is the best weather app I’ve use. Thanks for the valuable service
  • Amazing app! 5/5

    By GrumpyAdWife
    I have quite the addiction to weather apps and this one has been my favorite of all. I love how it tells you to the min rain chances and how long it will rain. This is so helpful. Again 5+ stars.
  • Always fast and accurate 5/5

    By L S Pecaro
    It’s the first app I open when I have seconds to look and see what’s happening outside! What features are not to like? I especially like seeing when the rains will start, how intense and when there’re expected to end. Very nice, I’ve been using it for years!
  • It’s like magic 5/5

    By volkstricken
    Dark Sky is not the weather app you open when you’re curious what the rest of the week looks like. But for the day and the next few hours, in your specific location, it’s the most accurate weather prediction I’ve ever used. I especially love the push notifications, which make other people think I’m a psychic. Out with friends when it starts to rain? I can tell them it will stop in 10 minutes— and it does. I recommend this to people all the time and it’s one of very few paid apps I really think are worth it.
  • Not Accurate 1/5

    By Morebits
    Forecasted rain within 20 minutes while skies remained clear. Current Temperature seriously incorrect. Can't believe I paid $4 to obtain incorrect forecast when I could instead use National Weather Service or Weather Underground to obtain correct forecasts.
  • Not accurate 1/5

    By Nozzy666
    Lots of free apps that deliver accurate weather.
  • Reliable 5/5

    By ladt2
    I use Dark Sky for reliable up to the minute planning!
  • Great weather app 5/5

    By mr. jb7
    I love this app! The only thing I would change is to show the humidity and wind speed on the widget.
  • Need more work 1/5

    By keystone507
    Just not doing good for me. Need sharper image for radar map. Every time I open radar I get the world. Just need it to remember the last setting. Pretty much black an white program, need a little more color for me. Wish they had few days preview before spending money for something that just work for (me).
  • Love Dark Sky! 5/5

    By A Peirce Student
    Dark Sky is my go-to app for weather. It is amazingly accurate, particularly in regard to the timing and intensity of precipitation. One of my most favorite apps of all time, I highly recommend it!
  • Great App 5/5

    I decided to add this app to my arsenal of weather apps and have found it to be accurate and sometimes better than the two major apps. I highly recommend it.
  • It’s ok 3/5

    By Mobile nurse
    Weather underground is more accurate.
  • Disappointed 3/5

    By chairdr
    So far App has failed to predict light rain on two occasions. Whereas the weather channel has. Bicycle magazine recommended this purchased App too. Would not recommend. Stick with Wearher Channel FREE.
  • Not accurate 2/5

    By pleasefixthisapp0000
    This app looks great but it's constantly reporting the wrong weather temperature. I've confirmed the location is set correctly and I've refreshed the app as well as reinstalled it but it's still off. The stock weather app will report it's 95F and dark sky will say it's 76F. What's going on? The whole point of a good weather app is it's accuracy. Please fix this.
  • Excellent! 5/5

    By Vol in VA
    I’ve had several weather apps from A to Z. Dark Sky is the BEST! Well worth the price!
  • Best weather app 5/5

    By pnels81
    It is easily the best weather app out there and worth the money.
  • Great interface, but inaccurate 2/5

    By Tyson J.
    Dark Sky has the best interface of any weather app I’ve seen yet. So much so that up until today I chose to tolerate how frequently it is inaccurate. It will say no chance of rain _while it’s raining_. Today it said it reported the current temperature as 83° with a high of 84°. Yeah, it’s 90° out. Doesn’t matter how good the interface is if I can’t depend on its ability to accurately report even the current weather, let alone predict the future. Had to delete it.
  • finally 5/5

    By chpnc6
    i have downloaded so many weather apps and i finally found the one. it will tell you exactly when rain will start that i am wondering how other apps get it wrong?
  • Good app but... 3/5

    By Hypermoose8299
    Watch app does not respect your units setting. Shows Celsius when traveling in Canada despite my setting to Fahrenheit on the ios app
  • Dark Sky Weather App 5/5

    By Crystal M~T
    I found out about this app on YouTube and I really like it .
  • Disappointed lately 1/5

    By Cincyjoeyv
    When I first purchased the app it worked well. Now it’s highly unreliable. Just get weatherbug. Dark sky will only let you down
  • Great App! 5/5

    By billw62
    I really like this app. I like the looks and the sounds of this app. I just really like the way it was designed. Very accurate!
  • Notifications Delayed 3/5

    By xEZxPZx
    I enjoy using this app. But the notifications as of late are extremely delayed. This app will notify me of a tornado warning 30 minutes after the warning has expired. So for notifications I have to depend on other weather apps.
  • Terrible App 1/5

    By C8H108
    Very inaccurate, don't waste your money on this one!
  • Coolest Weather App 5/5

    By deonnabishopp
    I’ve downloaded a lot of weather apps looking for one that’s the coolest and this one is cool! Love it!
  • Great. Heads up of any rain coming!! 4/5

    By JJ 5950
    I did a search on YouTube of best weather apps. And this was the top one, I like the alert settings I get text within any rain coming within an hour , the time to get my job site ready for the rain. Or plan To wait bc I know rain is coming
  • Terrible 1/5

    By jerseyclone
    Worst weather app I have used. Waste of money.
  • Less reliable in 2018 2/5

    By Dencarj
    There have been too many tines this year when this app has predicted no rain and within an hour it’s pouring down rain. It not too relate this year. It use to be a better predictor.
  • 3 Rating 3/5

    By Vadave123
    I gave this app a 3 rating. I have found after using this a few days it works excellent over a wi-fi connection but when using cellular service it takes a long time to load with 2 signal bars on my phone. Sometimes it never would load the weather screen. Most of the time that’s when I need the weather reports the most is when I’m camping, fishing and just enjoying the outdoors. I would prefer the app use less data and just load current weather without all the bells and whistles on a slow connection.
  • My kid could forecast better weather 1/5

    By Snooch1313
    I live in North New Jersey. App used to be reliable, now total junk. If you work outside watch news12 instead.
  • LakeLover 5/5

    By terisart
    Best weather App. BAR NONE
  • Good even in costal California 5/5

    By Golly Wally
    I was skeptical at first, but this app has proven itself over and over! I have even convinced others to try this app. All have been pleased by an app that really works as described! Good job!
  • Feels like you’re guessing 2/5

    By bensjamin
    One of the first apps I paid for. Used to be great but over last few months I’ve noticed that your daily forecast is pretty far off. Then randomly when it looks like rain is imminent I check your app and it says no rain for the next hour. Then a few minutes later when it starts to rain your app says heavy rain for the hour. Moving you off my front page and removing your widget.
  • Not impressed at all 2/5

    By Superakcraig
    I had high hopes I guess for a 3.99 app. The map is terrible. It’s hard to control and hard to read. It doesn’t refresh. Not sure who chose the color but it’s terrible. The percents on the daily forecast make no sense. I mainly got it for the watch and even that doesn’t seem to work right. I see three different current temps, one on the watch app, one on the complication and one on the phone app. Rather poor design all around. So much for an “editors choice” app.
  • Awesome Weather App 5/5

    By jdbelmond
    I seldom buy apps but after seeing a friend with this one I purchased it and would recommend this app to anyone who loves where there is weather (get the jist!). Great user interface and supported by great graphics and day to day breakdowns I use this app every single day and great app for money. Thank you Dark Sky for having this indispensable app for users!
  • My go to weather app 5/5

    By Traumamike
    I was actually going to give this app 4 stars because it’s been wrong about afternoon showers when checking first thing in the morning. However, it states right in the description that it’s accurate for the next hour and that’s very true. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve checked Dark Sky, noticed it was supposed to rain soon, and was then able to walk my dog without getting wet. Thank you!!
  • Perfect for immediate knowledge 5/5

    By Jnettie
    I use this app most for tracking storms and rain. It is great for warning you that rain is coming and telling you how long it will last. I love the radar. Extended forecasts are not so much it’s thing but thats fine.
  • Stupid 3/5

    By Lazy-H
    This app consistently uses an incorrect address as default. I have changed it several times to no avail. Does it actually have a bad locator? Weatherwise, it is accurate. Too bad for the annoyance whenever I open it.
  • Worthless app and waste of $ 1/5

    By SNance6
    Notifications don’t work. Actually raining while I write this review and not one alert. Radar is the absolute worst I’ve seen. There are far better free apps out there. Don’t waste your money on this pathetic app. I feel robbed and stupid for buying this app.
  • The best app ever 5/5

    By Giant killer 4426
    The weather channels and weatherman should use this app ... Whenever there is a storm threat and everyone is losing their minds about the milk and bread ... I’m either home laughing at them or ahead of the line buying it !! This is the best app ever .... hands down Works based on your location not “region” Simply epic !!!!!
  • Accurate but needs Severe Weather Info 4/5

    By AGSSEC91
    This is the most accurate app for weather overall-much better than the more “we’ll-known” one most folks have. My only complaint really is that I wish it had something showing severe weather indicators such as lightning.
  • Dependable 5/5

    By Still waiting 2013
    When you use an app together whether information, you need something that is dependable. Dark Sky has proven to be very dependable as I making decisions for myself and several hundred other persons. Dark Sky is my go to app.
  • Dark Sky 5/5

    By JTWestend
    What a wonderful weather app!!! I find it most accurate and love the fact that I can find out what time rain will start.
  • Best for gardening 5/5

    By Arvada lover
    I’ve tried at least five other weather apps and this one has been the best for me and my potted outdoor plants. It warns me of temperature drops and freezes and also extreme hot temperatures a head of time.
  • Apple Watch S3 app doesn’t work. 4/5

    By BranFLAYKES
    Like the app but please fix this issue.
  • Where is everything? 4/5

    By Bill-Indiana
    The review that is posted must be the app owner. There really isn’t much to say as it does so little. Long range forecast is just a set of low / high temps. The forecast is only for one day, and is nice, but doesn’t show anything else, no wind forecast or direction. The standard that all apps should be compared to is the desktop version of Intellicast - which used to be here as an app. UPDATE::: this app isn’t all that bad, contrary to first impression. It isn’t intuitive on how to get the future forecasts but is there! I think it would be nicer to be able to see more than 24 hours of “weather” at a time, not just temp, to help plan a few days ahead.
  • I would give this no stars but I can’t 1/5

    By Libragirl
    I am standing in the rain and the app says it’s going to start raining in 35 minutes. I refresh the app even so far as deleting and reuploading it and it still says it’s not raining yet. Every review I read for this app said it was so accurate. HA!!!!
