Dark Sky offers hyperlocal weather information. With down-to-the-minute forecasts, you’ll know exactly when the rain will start or stop — right where you’re standing. (It’s like magic.) YOUR WEATHER, DOWN TO THE MINUTE Dark Sky delivers forecasts for your precise location, giving you minute-by-minute predictions for the next hour and hour-by-hour forecasts for the next week. BEAUTIFUL WEATHER ANIMATIONS The same technology that powers Dark Sky’s predictions also allows us to make beautifully smooth radar animations. These animations show you the path of the storm, including how it moved up to now and where it’s going next. NOTIFICATIONS Dark Sky comes with advanced notification options. Receive up-to-the-minute alerts before it starts raining at your exact location, get notified of severe weather alerts (for events such as thunderstorms, flooding, hurricanes etc.) or even create your own custom notifications covering the next 24 hours for things such as temperature, wind, precipitation and more. Dark Sky will tell you what you need to know, when you need to know it. WIDGET The Dark Sky widget tells you at a glance what’s going to happen in the next hour or the next week, so you don’t even have to unlock your phone to quickly check the weather before going out. TIME MACHINE Explore weather in the past or future. Choose a date and see historical weather data or future predictions based on seasonal averages. APPLE WATCH Dark Sky looks great on your wrist.

Lost a ⭐️ for every reason listed. The peach of it is: they created the first 0 (zero) ⭐️. When the app comes down, all the ratings are gone—0. -Apple did NOT listen! -Apple is shutting down this app! -Apple is migrating this app data into its own pre-installed weather channel app. -Why- the weather channel?? Below is original post—prior to Apple buying this app and all associated data. ——————————————————————— This was a five ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This app, for YEARS, has been my ‘go to’ for the declination of current weather — as compared to the corporate variation of data smuggling conglomerates...😉 —the purchased version never HAD a reason to collect any data (other than location & barometric pressure), so they didn’t. 😳 P.S. Now that Apple has purchased this gem...🥺 ...I would still choose this app over ALL the competitors, especially the default/pre-installed versions.
Limited saved locations
amgmusic on 2022-07-03
Why in the world are the number of saved locations limited at 6?!?!?!? Makes ZERO sense.! I paid for this app and don’t use it! Though the yahoo app is not as good on many fronts I end up using it because do like to Easily check the weather in places where my friends and family are and places that I’m traveling too. I would use Dark Sky but this limitation is ridiculous and arbitrary! Why does this issue exist!?!? Again, absolutely stupid. Stupid. Stupid. I miss Weather Underground because it was better. I would delete this nearly useless app but I paid for it.
Simply the BEST WEATHER APP!!!!!

I have extensively used a lot of different weather apps and none compare to the accuracy of Dark Sky. Yes there a few that have better graphics but if your looking for spot to weathers predictions you can’t beat Dark Sky! I work as a landscaper and rain is essential and with forecasting literally down to the minute of when it will start and stop and with what level of intensity!!! I been using this app even before it was an apple product and will continue for as long as it is available!!!! Praise be to GOD. Trump 2024!!!!!!!
Love Dark Sky

During these chaotic ever changing times Dark Sky provides great info allowing me to take advantage of the minuscule nice weather we have had on Cape Cod. I appreciate all the improvements. THANKS We depend on Dark Sky for so many of our outside activities. As active pickleball players DS has allowed us maximize our playing time. This includes avoiding rain “&” dealing with/shoveling snow and avoiding below freezing temperatures and strong winds wind gusts. 😊❤️
Sour apple

I paid for this app when it was independent from apple. A month later apple bought it and now it is free. No refund. But it’s ok because this app was so good precise and up to the moment I was so happy about it. Right now I’m stuck in a store. The app says there is no rain. It is pouring. It’s raining men. Aleluya!!! But the app is skeptic. No rain in the horizons. Even the seudo radar is not showing a cloud. In the sky. Thanks apple for ruining this app.
Dark Sky. Yup, it's about weather.
The Original Potentate. on 2022-07-03
When I first loaded Dark Sky I was perplexed. The screen message told me my local weather was boring. I should look at a weather map over Florida. I agreed and we've been on good terms ever since. It is not your usual weather app in as much as DS gives you a few options. The summary is easier to read than most. It is bold enough to predict that rain will be ending in about 11 minutes. I like that. Above everything else, there is no clutter! Give it a try.
My Go To
San Diego Chris on 2022-07-03
My go to weather app. Consistently accurate, and notifies me of rain before it happens — with remarkable accuracy (Next Hour Precipitation feature). We used to live in Southern California, where the weather was always the same — but now, living in North Texas, this app has become an important part of my day. I have it set to send me notification at 9 PM, outlining the weather for the coming day. A useful planning tool.
Going away :-(

Sorry to hear Apple is subsuming this into its weather app. The interface for Dark Sky is SO much more useful than the basic Apple Weather app. Esp. hourly forecast option, precipitation radar, swipe right for other weather metrics. I had switched to the Apple one, but after a few days, I’m reinstalling Dark Sky now to continue using while it still works through 2022, and till Apple kills off another goose it bought.
Dark skies good but could be better
Don Miguel Antonio on 2022-07-03
Dark skies offer a wealth of information but it could be improved on here are some examples: One additional color possibly to indicate temperature UV and weather conditions Two how much to say 83 dimensional view of somebody subdivisions in the program Three some kind of voice commands or possibly the app have a sound Four A section dealing with climate change I’ll be waiting to see how Apple improve its application
Good for current conditions, that’s it
VonTrousers on 2022-07-03
The app reports current conditions well but the forecast is useless. It’s own oddly colored and difficult to read radar presentation may show storms looming a few miles away, but you wouldn’t know it from the app’s hourly report. Other apps adjust the hourly forecast based on changes throughout the day. This one sticks to a morning’s forecast no matter how wrong it ends up being.
