This app is great! First of all it's FREE. Everything about this app is FREE! I happened to come across it several yrs ago. I downloaded & was ify, but proved me wrong on all levels. I can set all my notifications for anything on it. For weather temps, for ice, rain index, wind, etc. It sends me a text letting me know when it's going to rain ahead of time so I can button down anything outside or know they will call off a ballgame etc. Then when it will stop. There's more that, I can't remember exactly but if your reading the reviews to decide whether to get this app or not......the answer is.....GET THIS APP!! YOU WILL BE HAPPY WITH IT! It updates when needed and I just know you'll like this weather app, and I don't even own it but am trying to sell it! Lol that's how much I believe it's good. If your undecided, try it and if you don't like it get rid of it. That simple. I ONOW YOULL ENJOY IT.
The best weather app but...
dasqueeefnsie on 2021-04-11
This is hands down the best weather app. I’ve had it for 5 years and it’s always accurate. I ride a motorcycle frequently and this app has saved me from bad weather riding every time. But... the map view has a ridiculous quirk. It shows you the weather movement in a less than useful manner. It will show you up to 1 hour ahead, current, and 3 hours before. I can’t think of time over the last 5 years that I haven’t gone to the map and cursed. I don’t need the weather from 3 hours ago to be the priority! I need the weather 3 hours ahead! Totally 5 star app but please reprioritize the map view. I want to see where a gnarly storm is going, not the 3 hours that led up to it. @darksky ^help us all out. You can do it!

Sometimes spot on and other times way off - how to know when to depend on it! * The icons are confusing & some are undecipherable (various cloud icons). * Blue for rain and light gray for sunshine is so incredibly UN-intuitive (vs blue for blue sky sunny day & gray for rain as rain comes on cloudy days)!!! * Why doesn’t the sun icon appear on sunny days? * The likelihood of rain % never matches the hour-by-hour indications (eg 97% rain for the day yet hr by hr is only 2-3% the whole day). * WHY is current local forecast slider only 1-hr to come but has 3-4 hrs past?! However, I love the spinning globe of worldwide weather at a glance. Too bad you can’t tap it to focus down.
Declining Accuracy
Kerrr79 on 2021-04-11
I had been noticing that the temperature readings were off lately, and thought it must be due to not getting enough info in my area. Today, it says a high of 60, but the detailed view shows it never gets above 50. I came and checked the reviews and it’s apparently not just me. I don’t know what has changed here, but a weather app is pretty useless when you have to QA the info against other weather apps. Maybe Apple is cutting resources from the standalone Dark Sky app and instead focusing on enhancements to the native iOS weather app. Regardless, I wouldn’t recommend spending $5 on a weather app that can’t even get current conditions and current day forecast correct.
Used to be the best, now inaccurate

This was my “go-to” weather app. It used to be spot on. Knowing how long until rain starts/stops is nice to know, but it’s just not accurate anymore. All week it’s been saying low chance of rain. Yesterday it said a 15% chance at 10am. Well it’s now 7:30am and definitely raining. Would’ve been nice to know rain was coming earlier than 10am. The app said there was a 1% chance of rain before 10. Sure it wasn’t zero but 1% is as close as you can get. Now we’ve got thunder and lightning and what do you know, the app now says it’s def going to be raining for a while. Use this app if you want to know how much longer the rain will last but not to plan any activities.
Worst weather app I have ever used
JPhilk on 2021-04-11
I’m sorry that I purchased this app. Thinking that Apple had purchased the app from the original developer, I had much higher expectations. The accuracy of the forecasts, at least at my location, are terrible. And now, just moments ago, I received an alert that SNOW showers are expected soon. The temperatures are presently in the mid 50s, and even the Dark Sky app is forecasting a low temperature tonight of 49 degrees. So how in the world would snow be in the forecast? I’m deleting the app. A waste!!!
Used to love it

When this app could locate me then I adored it. It was helpful and easy to understand. Now it thinks that I am in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I’ve done what the troubleshoot asked and uninstalled it and reinstalled it. I’ve even reset my phone several times and it still hasn’t worked. If it can’t figure out how to find my current location then it’s a waste of money. However if that gets fixed then I think it is a very useful app.
Not as advertised.

The interface is great and when I first bought the app, I loved it. It truly lived up to it’s “hyper-local“ hype - the predictions were very accurate and I used them to plan my days. Not sure why, but sometime last year, accuracy and local emphasis went out the window. Not sure where the forecasts are coming from, but these days, they’re anything but local - they’re often ridiculously wrong. Wish I could get my money back.
Good app
Secerator on 2021-04-11
It would be nice to see both the temperature and precipitation probability into one screen without having to tab over between them. There is enough room to put 2 columns and have one show hourly temp and another the precipitation probability. And having these customizable would be even better in case someone wants to see 2 different columns. It is annoying to have to tap back and forth between them to see this data.
Fantastic app, just worried about its future
G2Kal on 2021-04-11
Dark Sky is one of the best weather apps I’ve used, it has so many features and a reliable weather map. I’m worried about its future since the app hasn’t received new widget support and it seems like the hour to hour precipitation graph was given to the apple weather app too. If they’re going to merge them or brick Dark Sky, just do it sooner rather than later. I hope the developers are supported going forward.
