Dark Sky Weather App Comments & Reviews

Dark Sky Weather Positive Reviews

Finally, a weather app that’s focused on weatherI tried at least a dozen weather apps after Weather Underground took a turn for the worse and destroyed their app with a horrible update. Most of them were little more than advertising platforms with a little weather thrown in for effect, or they required onerous subscriptions to make the ads go away. Even without the ads too many of the apps were bizarre one-off user interface experiments gone horribly wrong. Then I gave Dark Sky a look and immediately recognized how intuitive and straight to-the-point the app was for delivering weather information. I like it. Money well spent. The only nit I’ve discovered so far is that the daily summary notification on my iOS 13 devices is not based on my actual location but some other location, either one that I was in the day prior or the location of my ISP or some other nearby location. Not sure whether it’s an iOS 13 issue because everything seems to work fine with iOS 12. I have location always enabled for Dark Sky on all of my devices. I suppose I could tell Dark Sky to always present the daily summary for a specific location, but that would not help me if I’m traveling. In any case, I think something funky is going on between Dark Sky and Location services on iOS 13..Version: 6.7.7

Hands Down best weather appI don’t write reviews a lot but this one is soo good I had to. Let’s start off by saying it is worth paying 3.99 dollars on this one the first thing that made me get this app is the accuracy it’s 80 to 85 percent accurate Number 2 is the design I like that there’s a simple but intuitive chart that covers the next 24 hours and I thought it was per 2 hours and going to be a minus but before when I did not have the app yet you made an update where if you press the next 24 hours graph each hour will appear that’s very cool Number 3 Reason is the the layout I like that it’s not cluttered and very readable Last Reason is there are no adds and protects your privacy which is #1 Reason why I got this app. Thank you 😀 and I hope you don’t take off the features while still improving the app. I forgot to mention the maps, notifications, and reporting the weather. The maps are there for you to understand the current weather other maps confuse you all the time. The Notifications are extremely helpful as no weather will catch you off guard I got notified of today’s forecast as I enabled notifications it said possible drizzle this evening which I like. The Report feature is cool because you make the accurate forecasts even better. Thank you again 😀😀.Version: 6.5.1

Timely rain alertsI got this app years ago when I was getting rained on and my two weather apps were telling me that it wasn’t raining and that there was a zero percent chance of rain all day. It has rarely let me down over the years. I’ve always used it with the Apple Watch and the notifications are excellent. Another thing I like is that it breaks down the hourly forecast for the entire seven day forecast, something other services provide in website form but I’ve never seen on a subscriptionfree app. While dark sky is very good in the short run, I don’t trust it much a few days out, but the hourly stuff is still useful. I have apps that say 100% chance of rain on Saturday and then I check dark sky and it says that that 100% chance is at 4 am but no chance in the afternoon. That detail is very nice to have. A request to the developer: please allow customization for the different aspects of the forecast. I live in Florida, so right now, I want heat index, chance of rain, and UV index. Nothing else is relevant for 95% of the time I open the app. But instead, it goes temperature, heat index, precipitation probability, precipitation rate, wind speed, wind gust, humidity, dew point, then, finally, UV index..Version: 6.5

Mediocre at bestFor years I’ve been staring at this app wondering if it what worth taking the plunge. But I couldn’t justify myself spending $4 on a weather app. Eventually I dove in and bought it while reading all of the other good reviews. After spending some time with the app, it’s mediocre at best and definitely not worth a $4 price tag. The app does nothing different then any other weather app. You would think the shiny graphics would be interactive, have multiple features to play around with but it doesn’t do anything except tell you the forecast and let you know when it’s going to rain or snow. The big world map spins when you look at it and rotate it, and it’s not even a high quality graphic. It’s blurry. It also gave a “time capsule” feature where you can go back to a date 20, 30, 40 years ago to see what the weather was like then. And that is so inaccurate. I went back to a day that I remember nasty weather and it told me it was a sunny warm day. There’s also no iOS 14 widget. Also not sure why Apple took this app over when they have their own weather app/widget. This app shouldn’t be more then $.99 of that. There are just not enough features to charge $4.00 for it. Stick to another weaver app for free. They basically give you the same info with more interaction and features..Version: 6.8.5

Keep recommending this to my friends and family, thought I should write a reviewThere are very few apps that I actually feel improve my life and I have such high quality and thoughtfulness that I actively recommend them to people. Dark Sky is one of those. In addition to as much accuracy as you can get, it provides hourly predictions, ‘feels like’ options for things like windchill, and one particular feature which actually might have saved my health once or twice: UV Index. I had never even heard of that before but I get sunstroke allllll the time and that feature is fabulous. The hourly precipitation prediction is both attractive and insanely useful in places like New York, allowing you to time a mad dash during a lull in the storm. This app has features that no other application for tracking the weather has: it’s in my top five apps that I use and I use it every day. It works just as accurately in every country that I go to and every state that I go to, all with different types of weather challenges. I just love it. Please keep up the good work, its truly a rare product of worth and quality, like lace, or a pocket watch. Weird analogies but hopefully they get the point across: this app shows craftsmanship, not commercialism..Version: 5.3.8

Request for feature to be addedFirst of all I love the Dark sky weather app but one thing I would really like to see get added to the Dark Sky Weather app is the ability to use this app as a widget in iOS 14 I would really love to add this app to the widget stack but I have been unable to do that in iOS 14 and now I am on iOS 14.6 and you developers still haven’t added the ability to use this app as a widget on the Home Screen on iOS 14 so if you developers have the time to do it and add this feature in your next update could you please add that. I feel it would really come in handy and Dark Sky Weather app has saved my back so many times it would be a bigger help if this app had the ability to do widget stacks. I understand if the answer is no we are too busy to do that but I am asking when you developers feel up to it could you please add this to an update sometime in the future. But hands down this is the best weather app I own on my iPhone XR so if anyone hasn’t purchased this app yet please do so you won’t regret it and take this advice from someone who has owned this app for years now this app has never failed me and it will never fail me!.Version: 6.8.6

Awesome App!!!My subject line pretty much covers it. I live in Georgia. Weather here can be anything from the most beautiful sunny day to an absolute nightmare. Weather forecasting has improved by leaps. However, even with the National Weather Service located here they can be sometimes challenged by the timing of these atmospheric changes. Not so with Dark Sky. The precision of the global radar map, which can be almost zoomed in on to my neighborhood and local surrounding area, is by far one of the greatest tools available to assist and help us prepare for any inevitability Mother Nature may have in store for us. From being able to determine my work route, plan and protect my garden to advance preparation for the possibility of tornados, thunderstorms, hurricanes...Well, I am truly amazed. Recently with the catastrophic hurricanes it allowed me to know just what my family was about to experience in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico. I was able to communicate with them before the fact to make the necessary arrangements for after the fact. Do yourself a great favor and get this app. You will be pleased, surprised and as grateful as I am. Many thanks and my deepest appreciation to the developers..Version: 5.3.2

Feature request + update feedbackThe main thing that has held me back all these years from making Dark Sky, an otherwise wonderful app, my default weather app, has been the lack of barometric pressure info. I suffer from regular migraines and this is a critical part of weather forecasting for me and many others. please consider adding? that having been said, the “otherwise wonderful” judgment is also based on the old Dark Sky app. this new one claims to have more info and to be easier to use, but I’ve found it to be a dramatically worse in terms of UI/UX. I’ve held off on reviewing until now because I wanted to be fair and make sure it wasn’t just a knee-jerk reaction to change on my part. but no — weeks later and I still have to spend way too much time processing the information presented to me every single time I open the app, whereas before it was intuitive at a glance. again, I very happily paid for this app and have been using it for years without complaint, and would prefer to remain loyal. but right now I’m mostly sticking with it because my other currently-installed options are even worse. that’s not exactly a rousing recommendation. would love it if you’d reconsider, or at least have multiple UI options available to your users..Version: 6.0.5

Great for weather, awful on the eyes.I’ve been using Dark Sky for quite a while and have depended on its accuracy and reliability when I want to know what it’s like outside. But with the last big update, I now find that checking the weather with this app is totally unpleasant. The microscopic fonts, weird little balls with tiny numbers in them that I assume are supposed to indicate data by their position on a horizontal line is not not only esthetically displeasing, it takes more time to figure out what’s going on and what I’m looking for. I don’t want to spend more than a minute to quickly see what the temperature is and if it’s going to rain or now and when. But the visuals are so cumbersome that I find myself getting annoyed every time I open it. Don’t they have any graphic designers that could help with this? I tried downloading various other weather apps and even used the Apple weather app for a while because it’s easy to read. But I admit I trust Dark Sky’s accuracy more than anyone else’s. If they could find someone to redesign it, get rid of those silly black bubbles and wasted white space and make it easy on the eyes I would give it five stars for sure. Fingers crossed someone is listening....Version: 6.0.5

The best!Dark Sky is definitely the most accurate weather forecast app and I have tried many. The new user interface is a bit more complicated, not difficult, just a little more cumbersome. But it’s very easy and intuitive unlike many other apps. I do wish the humidity icon was closer to the temperature icon as it used to be but my complaints are very tiny and because I did like the old interface very much and haven’t gotten used to the new one yet. However it has even more information and has some added text which is nice. I have been recommending it to all of my friends for years and I rely on it totally. I supplement it with NOAA for the detailed special weather conditions like severe thunderstorm warnings for the big picture but for local weather conditions Dark Sky is much more accurate. I also appreciate that one can give feedback on the local weather conditions. It lets you know that it’s going to start raining in half an hour for example. And it is incredibly accurate about that. Whenever possible I always time my walks and errands according to this forecast. All in all a great app!!.Version: 6.0.1

Unfortunate layout changesThe folks at dark sky touted the new single page format of the app but ignore the fact that users each have their own needs regarding what information is most important to them. The redesigned app necessitates more scrolling for me to get to the information that I am interested in. Additionally, the choice to put the hourly temperatures zigzagging horizontally in an attempt to “helpfully” mimic a bar graph is simply visually taxing. Charts graphing temperature over time conventionally put time across the bottom and temperature varying in height. The vast majority of the public expects that format. Switching the direction around and additionally scattering the actual data (temperature in degrees) by putting it at the variable end of the bar makes it infinitely more difficult to get a quick, clear, idea of the forecasted hourly temperature variations. I’d suggest putting the temperatures back on the left side of the screen, just after the hour and allowing users to customize the order of the modules on their page. These simple changes would go a long way towards easing users pain. St this point I have a hard time bringing myself to open the darksky app on my iPhone. Instead, I’ve reverted to opening darksky’s web page in safari..Version: 6.0.5

Best weather app out thereFantastic weather app and the Apple Watch support is a great bonus. This is my hands down go to weather app I check thirty times a day. Ok, a little exaggerating but you get the idea. The precipitation alerts are so amazingly accurate its like Back To The Future. It'll alert you when rain is about to start, when that rain is going to end, and has beautiful graphs indicating how hard the rain is going to be coming down during those periods. I've used tons of other weather apps and most are just sugar coated graphics that developers have pulled together to not be nerdy developers. Don't waste your money on that stuff. The only other time I reference another weather app, Wx Alert USA, is when we go out sailing and I need more info pertaining to wind speed and direction. That app is the more written description of weather. Dark Sky is far and above anything else out there. Again, the Apple Watch feature takes the cake. You see the graphs and alerts on the watch just as you would on the phone. This app should get a "best of" award from Apple it's so well done..Version: 5.2.9

Complaint is actually a complimentI always check Dark Sky before leaving the house especially during the rainy season, to know whether or not I need to carry rain gear. I have learned though not to trust dark sky because you will say it is not going to rain and then 10 minutes later rain will show up on the ticker. Means you have received more current information. This is a benefit and I appreciate it even though I don’t like the vacillating. It would be great if you had more data points and could give a little bit more reliable forecast. Also often when I open my phone it thinks I live nearby somewhere. I have to select my current address for it to populate. Sometimes it name streets that I’m on familiar with. They must be in my neighborhood somewhere and have a similar weather pattern. All in all I really like dark sky. It’s my go to weather app and I’ve told quite a few people about it. Very very really does it say that it is not raining when I open the door and it is raining..Version: 6.8.2

Nice App, Radar Not At All What I HopedI have had the app a few hours and so far I'm not crazy about my $3.99 purchase. I read reviews, looked at the photos, and the app description and decided to give it a shot as I was hoping this may be my replacement for my WU Storm app that was stopped by TWC. The overall usability of the app is nice. Easy to follow and set up. The widget is well laid out, too. My big problem is that I did not realize the radar photo preview when I was checking the app out was literally showing the only two functions this apps radar has (Precip/Temp). There are no extra layers/information to add to the map. The Precip function shows rainfall similar to that of other apps (just in different colors), but there are no map layers to show Severe Weather Advisories/Watches/Warnings, Fronts, Storm Tracks, etc. You can opt to get Severe Weather alerts/notifications for your location, but you cannot go to the map and see the Warning on the map in relation to your location. For me, living in tornado alley, that is a BIG DEAL. I'll keep using the app for a few weeks and see what I think about it, but ultimately, I think it will just become another app in my cloud..Version: 5.3.8

I can’t tell you how much I love this app!Let me start off by saying that I am a weather app junkie. I am always looking for the newest and best weather app. One that tells me what’s going to happen in five minutes or five hours or five days. I find a weather app and think, “this one is great!” but inevitably I use them less and less because there’s so much information to wade through to get to the weather info I need or want and I always come back to Dark Sky. Dark Sky gives me just as much info as I need in the least complicated way possible. And the information that it gives me is inevitably right on target. Then, when I turn and say to the person next to me that is going to start raining in 10 minutes, and it does, people think I’m psychic or something. Then I show them it is this great app and then they end up buying it and on it goes. Do yourself a favor and get this app. It is fun and accurate and does what all the other apps promise and rarely deliver, which is it makes your life simpler to navigate..Version: 5.3.8

Wonderful AppThis app is great and worth the cost. It gives up to the minute forecasts on the weather for the week. The daily forecast informs me on how I should dress for the day and their predictions are rarely wrong. You can submit your own weather conditions so their information is more accurate. There are more hidden functions like refreshing by tapping on the hourly forecast and showing all the current conditions by tapping the temperature. Those kinds of things aren’t that important, so I love that they hide those features, thus streamlining the look and feel of the app. I’d suggested a while back that they add a little color, which they started to do. They didn’t add much though, which is kind of a bummer. I think they could add a little more without making it look too busy. They obviously have their own style that they want to adhere to with this app. As is though, it’s still an amazing app that has been invaluable to me on a daily basis. It’s worth the price of admission..Version: 6.7.3

Dr. DaveI love this app, along with the rest of my family, and we have used it daily for some time now. It provides accurate, real-time weather info and predictions in a very user friendly format. The “global weather radar” function is very useful and clearly illustrates why weather patterns move the way the do across the Earth’s Globe. Other weather apps (& TV Weather reports) often use weather maps utilizing the Earth’s Mercator Projection which distorts the sizes and distances of storms and weather patterns as one moves away from the Equator heading toward the poles. In stark contrast to this, Dark Sky’s “Global weather radar” projected on the curved surface shows that storms, hurricanes, and other weather patterns, move at uniform rate in a consistent patterns all across the globe. On a Mercator Projection map, however, storms and hurricanes seem to rush off the map as they head north away from the Equator in the Northern Hemisphere (or south in the Southern Hemisphere). Sorry “Flat Earthers”, the Earth is an Oblate Spheriod (i.e., The Earth is a Globe, Not Flat)!.Version: 6.0.2

Snow Management MustI work in the snow and ice management Industry in the Midwest where weather seems to be unpredictable to the local weathermen. Just last month we had a 4” snowfall with no snow in the forecast. I searched high and low for an app that would notify me just before the snow would fall, so we would be able to service our clients outside of regular business hours, a must in this industry. I stumbled across Dark Sky and I will tell you for me it is well worth the money. It notifies you when precipitation is about to fall, which is great in an industry where you get limited sleep. The push notification is unique and enough to wake me up in a snow event and great in events that the weatherman misjudged. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because we service multiple areas, and precipitation hits differently in certain areas with lake effect. It would be nice if there was an option to get push notifications for multiple locations. Other than that I’m so happy I came across this app..Version: 6.8.2

A Great, Great Weather App! It’s missing one crucial element!The App NEEDS to offer Color Customization! Just a few color themes, nothing complicated. For me the All White background is just too much. I do have a sensitivity to light, bright light especially. The affects of sudden bright white light, a camera flash, very bright days leave me squinting like mad. So many times I’ll wake at night wanting to check the weather. This app is almost as bright as the flashlight app. It certainly lights up the room from the tiny screen. If you could add a few color theme options I’d use the App the way I had intended to. Nothing needs to change on the Earth page, just the pages that are bright, bright, white. Thanks and I do hope you will agree to add this option and without asking us to pay more. Remember your buyers, their happiness breeds loyalty. Your buyers/Users are the Bedrock of your Foundation. Without them things begin to crack, weaken and before you know it they’ve gone away leaving you with attempts at shoring up the foundation, trying this and that. All could have been avoided, remained strong and resilient if only the end user, product purchaser was heard loud and clear. He/She May have brought along a few friends and so on. You just kept on growing because you knew deep down it’s the customer who is still with you, they are the bedrock that keeps your foundation fault free and strong..Version: 5.3.8

Used to be great! Now, not so much.This review is for the weather forecast and predictions for the Washington DC metropolitan area. Dark sky used to be as close to accurate as it could get. For the majority of 2019 it’s been subpar at best. It’s constantly reporting clear for the upcoming few hours when you can see lightening followed by steady rain for the next hour. This has happened more often than not and I’m beginning to think that they’ve turned this weather app into a pranking app; either that, or whatever meteorologists they’ve hired are straight out of high school (I can’t possibly think of any other valid reason for the obscene amount of inaccuracy that this once “go-to” weather app has become). It’s nonsensical that they still charge for this app but hopefully this review will help others think twice about buying this app and wasting their money. I get that the weather isn’t the easiest thing to predict and mistakes are bound to happen, but 9/10 wrong forecast projections is anything but a mistake. Hope they pull it together soon. Such a shame..Version: 6.4.2

This great app just got even greaterI have had Dark Sky since it first launched - and became dedicated to it when, in a random moment, I glanced at it while waiting at a red light to cross a street in lower Manhattan, and decided on the spur of the moment to to give it a test when it predicted a big rainstorm in 2 minutes. I stepped out of the street and under the overhang of a nearby building and in exactly 2 minutes a deluge descended on all of those without umbrellas, except me. Done. I was sold and have used it ever since. But now phase II of this great little app. They just launched a really solid and impressively designed/built update that has cured all of its initially quirky UI and other issues. And now I think I will finally trash my other weather apps (e.g., Accuweather and Weather Channel) that I have used as back ups, and which constantly need to be cross-referenced anyway against each other to get an accurate assessment of the weather anyway. Great app. Beautifully done. Excellent new version without getting rid of its soul. Get this app. It’s the best..Version: 6.0

Accuracy is not as advertisedI do not usually write reviews, but I thought others should know before they spend money on an app that is less accurate then the native apple weather app. I purchased it solely based on the good reviews and the misleading info page. Unfortunately, it has been wrong since the app was turned on. As I am standing in my backyard telling my dogs to come in because a downpour had started, the app says light rain in 20 mins. Meanwhile, it is a constant heavy rain for over a couple hours and the app says light rain ending soon. It did not stop. Also, I look ahead in the day to see what time it will rain, apple says 1pm and this app says 7pm? Of course it rained around 2 so both were wrong, but 5 hours off? I don’t mean to be so picky but it hasn’t been right yet and the fact that I spent money on “toy” app led me to write this review. The reason I gave 3 instead of 2 is because it is a nicely put together app with some great features. I just wish it could do what it says it could do. I will be sticking with my free apple app.Version: 6.2

Declined over the yearsThis was the hands-down best weather app a few years ago, but has declined in usefulness recently. It was perfect in every way, especially after it became available on the watch. However, last August they overhauled the interface when there was absolutely nothing wrong with it in the first place. I hate pretty much everything about the new interface. It’s more confusing to look at, some of the fonts are too small, and I preferred swiping to see the maps and long range forecast. Worst of all though is that the watch app no longer works since the August update, and I’ve now reverted to using Apple’s inferior weather app complication instead. The notifications remain super timely though, which was always the feature that differentiated them from all the other weather apps, but given that they no longer appear on my watch I often miss them entirely. I’d still recommend Dark Sky for use on iOS for the timely notifications, but look elsewhere for the time being if you want a working watch app..Version: 6.1.1

In the south we care a lot about the humidityNot sure how much of a fan I am of the recent changes to the interface, but this is a pretty awesome app. I spend a lot of time outdoors for work and while it’s about as accurate in the mountains as most weather forecasts in predicting weather, but once it starts raining I think it has always accurately predicted when the rain will intensify and stop. The biggest grip I have with the new interface is how difficult it is to find the humidity (also, don’t tell me it’s humid if the humidity is below 75%, cause that is lovely). It used be be a quick click, but now I have to scroll down and then over on a tiny little menu. It isn’t user friendly, and I live in the south, so the humidity is way more important than the temperature in the summer (we know it’s going to be hot, but will any of our sweat evaporate???). Thanks for a great app. This would be a 5 star review if finding the humidity is made easier or there is an option to go back to the old interface..Version: 6.0.5

Best weather app gets even better!I love this app! It is easy to read a gets better all the time. I garden & need details to make decisions about my day. Like other reviewers, I too left weather underground when it was ruined. I tried many weather apps and found them lacking. But Dark Sky is pleasant, easy to read and easy to access SO MUCH information: temperatures, wind chill temps, precipitation probability, precipitation amounts including totals & by the hour, wind direction, wind speed, humidity, dew point, UV, barometric pressure, sunrise and sunset times, and of course radar maps. The graphics illustrate the weather very clearly especially the precipitation types and amounts. I love the ability to go back and see what the weather was like in the past. I often look at the previous days weather to understand things about my garden. Dark Sky is easily the best weather app today!.Version: 6.8.5

Works well.I've heard lots of good things about Dark Sky. "It's great. It's awesome." From my perspective it works very well. Is it AWESOME? No. Not really. But it does work. One of the cool features is that it will tell you it will start (or stop) raining in "x" minutes. Usually it will say 8 minutes or some similar small amount of time. Guess what. If I'm outside and it's going to rain in 8 minutes, I could probably guess that it is going to rain soon. Knowing it is going to stop raining in 90 minutes would be great. But it normally gives you a much smaller heads up. So it's not that big of a deal. I do a lot of outdoor activities and I compare Dark Sky to my local weather forecast. The majority of the data is pretty comparable. When you look at the rain forecast... it's hit or miss. Especially if you are looking 2 or 3 days out. Sometimes Dark Sky is more accurate. Sometimes my local weather is more accurate. So is Dark Sky worth it? Sure. The Dark Sky interface is FAR SUPERIOR to my local TV weather app. Dark Sky is easier to use and It has more functionality. I've used a couple of other weather apps and they were not as informative. Maybe there are other good apps out there but this one works just fine. Bottom line? The weather is the weather. Most apps (and local TV stations) are going to be right about the same amount of time. The thing that sets Dark Sky apart is it's interface. It is my go-to weather app..Version: 5.2.9

Mostly Everything to LoveAs the title indicates, I love everything about this app except one thing. But first the "good" . . . What sets Dark Sky apart from other weather apps I've seen is the accuracy for precipitation. I can be anywhere and always depend on this for when precipitation when occur and the intensity. So far, for me, it's been accurate 99% of the time! That feature, alone, makes it well worth the purchase. Now, since I cycle a lot it's important to know the wind speed and direction. This is the one place where Dark Sky falls short of my expectations. The wind speed part is fine but it only shows arrows for the wind direction and no compass to show the direction. It would have been nice if the arrows were replaced with N,S,E,W or at the very least included a compass on the screen so you know which direction. If this feature were improved I would have left a perfect 5 star rating. I hope that the developers will improve the wind speed indicators with the next update..Version: 5.2.9

INFORMATIVE APP! Love itThis 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..Version: 6.8.5

Made me a believerLet’s face it-most all weather apps do the same thing. Seeing the ‘word ‘hyperlocal’ kind of makes me want to roll my eyes....BUT this thing totally works as advertised. I live in the lightning strike capital of America, SE Florida. Look it up, I’ll wait.... anyway we can have 5-6 different types of weather in one afternoon, and this app is on point in letting me know what’s going on where I am. If you’re driving and your weather is changing, it alerts you. How cool is that!? It’s really fun to tell your wife ‘it’s gonna rain in a few minutes’ and she says ‘are you sure I don’t see rain clouds’ and sure enough, it rains. Strap on your jetpacks, cause the future is here, boys and girls. And, if you’re studying meteorology (shouldn’t that reference asteroids instead of weather?🤔 ) you may want to consider switching majors unless you are really captivating, cause this app rocks..Version: 6.1.4

Thanks for the updateI always thought the old UI with the map sliding over like a drawer was spatially confusing, the new UI is much clearer to me. Love the new watch complication too, I used to need a separate complication to show me the current conditions and now it and temp are consolidated into one. Some minor suggestions: it’s not obvious that you can press on the main temp to see additional info like wind speed, maybe adding an (i) button or something would help. Also, I think more information could fit into the 24-hour forecast section, like you did in the 7-day section. And in the bottom bar Notifications and Report are (for me) much less often used than Forecast or Map, so maybe those can be moved elsewhere and instead the 7-day view could get its own tab. It would also be nice to allow you to swipe left and right to switch tabs (except Map of course)..Version: 6.0.1

A weather app that worksI’ve tried several free and paid apps, some were terrible and some were tolerable. Dark Sky is really good. I play golf, hunt and fish so I need to know the weather at ALL times of the day. Most apps will tell you it’s a 60% chance of rain on a particular day. Dark Sky will tell you it a 60%, but is clearing off at 11:00 a.m. and wind picking up to 40 mph. You can see the rain chance percentage , when and where it’s going to rain, how much rain, and everything you need to know. I’ve been using it for about a year now and it has saved me from cancelling several tee times due to the threat of rain. I also check the weather on the gulf coast to see how it’s going to be for fishing. If the weather channels on television would get this app, they could do a better forecast. I’m giving this app to my golfing buddies for Christmas..Version: 6.8.5

Good for up to the minute forecastI walk to work, and Dark Sky's up to the minute rain predictor ("light drizzle in 10 minutes") is GREAT for helping determine when to head home without getting caught in the rain. It's also good for places that have rapid fluctuations in weather, e.g. going to the beach, where "30% chance of rain" is the forecast EVERY DAY. Finally, I have successfully used Dark Sky to accurately determine what to wear when traveling to a new place. The temperature range indicator is so much more helpful for determining what clothes to pack without reading each day's forecast. However, I have noticed lately that Dark Sky tends to err on the side of predicting rain even if it might not rain, which can be frustrating until you realize it will say rain even if there is a 2 or 3% chance of rain falling somewhere in your area that day. This is especially common during the summer when thunderstorms can pop up literally at a moment's notice, or localized rain might mean Dark Sky says it's raining when it's actually not in your exact location (but might be down the street). However, I'll take a couple of days looking dumb because I brought an umbrella for seemingly no reason, over frustration that I got caught unprepared. Great app, nice interface. Highly recommend if you want a weather app that is helpful and looks good..Version: 5.2.9

Uncannily accurateThis app is amazingly consistent at timing the start or stop of drizzle/rain/downpour events. My reaction the first time I got the alert “Drizzle will start in 2 minutes” was “uh huh, sure.” But, that time and many times since, I found I need to pay attention to its alerts. The app’s data are certainly not infallible at predicting precip events, but the app frequently gives you the sense that it can predict the future with eerie accuracy. This is an extremely handy feature in the summer in Colorado, where “if you don’t like the weather, just wait 15 minutes.” Like any other weather app, Dark Sky is competent at reporting the current temperature and predicting temperature and RH. And it has a wonderfully simple and intuitive interface. Given its name, though, it is clear that the app really shines at predicting and alerting about precipitation events, with high accuracy and resolution measured in minutes..Version: 5.3.8
