Reports and notifications radar not updates or help
IdoReviews! on 2021-01-28
Again for buying this app these notifications not cominh through is a huge issue this is Only issue i see is their is no option to report ice and wintry mix also its not sending notifications i set up also your radar needs to show the different precip like rain snow mix ext like all the other weather apps I purchased the dark sky weather app which said it was owned by apple and paid $3.99 for it less then 60 days ago and this last week everyday the app turns to a white square like its not available and then you cant delete it and then it turns back into the regular app icon and will open. So 1 if you dont want it as an app id like my money back because it says its over the time for a refund and 2 its been less then 60 days so it should not allowed me to purchase if you were ending support for it. Also the notifications if you are fixing this app do not work based on what I selected as I have a backup app u til I knew this worked. For an apple app i am very disappointed that you would 1 charge and 2 not update when you know there are issues but the biggest on being you cant meet to keep an app updated esp when warning matter please update this or refund my money and Ill just use the other app. It looked like this app came highly rated but clearly that was a miatake
It has not been close to correct

I had this app long time ago and was pretty much always Wright. Repurchased it has been way off sense this minute says light rain in an hour temperature is 52 yet has rained all morning tell now at 2:00 pm now hail heavy and temperature is 37 at highest.Refreshed app checked location also keeps asking if it can watch my location when not using few times a day when I changed settings so it could to stop getting asked everyday and still doing it so thinking taking lose go back to stock weather app which is nothing special but closer and won't be harassed about setting all ready put were don't really want it following me when not even using and burning battery.Apple you should be ashamed and I know you can do better maybe need to pay attention let car project go for a while longer.
I don’t know why people like this app
MandiNoel on 2021-01-28
I bought this app because of the rave reviews and it’s supposed accuracy. I don’t find it any more accurate than the free app on my iPhone. I also can’t stand the map colors, it’s nearly impossible to know if the radar has any winter precipitation mixed in a storm. There’s no way to switch it to traditional colors. I haven’t found the predictions any more accurate than other apps, and I never get notifications to prepare me for rain to start - just notified once it’s started - when I’m standing there looking at the rain for myself. That doesn’t really do me any good. I deleted it finally and will just use the Apple preloaded app for my weather.
You are gonna love Dark Sky
rAllcorn on 2021-01-28
I love dark sky. One of the reasons I chose it was because it works so well with my Apple Watch. The forecast formats are great, and the layout is easy to read. I love the way that it can be utilized in different areas, without your having to manually enter it in, as it uses your location information. What I wish they would fix is to have it “automatically“ check your location rather than you having to manually refresh it for it to know you’re in a new area. I’m sure they’ll come out with this with a new release… You’re gonna love dark sky!
From Best to Worst
tma17 on 2021-01-28
Used to be super accurate. Now the stock weather Apple app is more accurate (which is pathetic cuz that’s never been right) the whole point of this app is to specialize in precipitation of which is snowed most of the day today and according to this app is was cloudy all day while it was snowing... and to think at one time I paid $5 for this... Also the widget is AWFUL. All it shows is the current temp. What about the precipitation % (ya know the whole point of this app) Just awful!
Want to like the app
metro3947 on 2021-01-28
I really want to like the app but they need to fix government alerts and identify storms verses rain. A storm I’m going to stay indoors but rain isn’t going to bother me too much. The government alerts aren’t coming through in the Chicago area. I’ve tried all suggestions from the support team but I’m not receiving any government alerts for the Chicagoland area. Not bad, but could add that and widgets and it would be amazing. Right now it’s a not very helpful app.
Temperature accuracy needs help
Darrin976 on 2021-01-28
I like the app so far, but the forecast temperature is off. My wife uses the weather channel app and we often compare what the forecast says as far as temperature and precipitation. Her app is usually closer to the actual overnight temperature. Dark Sky tends to be off by 3 or more degrees. You might say, “big deal”, but when you are trying to avoid ice it is a big deal that several degrees can make a difference.
Very inaccurate
Pilwho on 2021-01-28
I bought this app after having it recommended to me. I have never had an accurate forecast since I bought it. We have a major snow storm rolling in and it has snow for about four hours when its going to be closer to 18. I like the idea of it and how its laid out but just isn’t useful. Also, radar is pretty useless too as it doesn’t have longer predictions.
Needs iOS 14 Widget Support
jarrennesbitt on 2021-01-28
Been a long time user of Dark Sky. Love the interface, weather predictions are generally on-point. I don’t understand, however, why they haven’t added widgets for iOS 14 yet. I’m stuck using Apple weather, carrot, or some other app when I’d much prefer dark sky. The app has been updated many, many times since iOS 14’s release, so where are the widgets?
Ladyteller on 2021-01-28
Haven’t had this app long, and had to report twice the weather was wrong when I looked it up. Forecast today rain in 11 minutes for 40 minutes. (Barely cloudy here.)Yet, it says the chance for precipitation is 0%. The good news is it tells you precipitation is happening when it is happening. (Via report banner.)Good if you’re indoors.
