Dark Sky is the most accurate source of 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.) Featured in: New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, Wired, and more. YOUR WEATHER, DOWN TO THE MINUTE 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. TIME MACHINE Explore weather in the past or future. Choose a date and see historical weather data or future predictions based off of seasonal averages. 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.



  • Used to be great

    By dmc_74
    Dark Sky used to be the best weather app out there. It was so accurate that if it said it was going to rain in 5 minutes, I went inside. It was so reliable that it was crazy. Since they did the big update, it is no longer accurate. I miss the old app. I didn’t write a review for a long time because I was hoping that they would work out the bugs & it would be restored to what it used to be however that hasn’t happened.
  • How is this app still rated #1 in weather apps?

    By Batavian1
    1) Poor weather accuracy. 2) No dark theme Can’t recommend. Deleted.
  • Previous Version was Fantastic. Don’t Waste Money on this Version.

    By Mvjyf m jfku ugk uyfckuyfkyyu
    The previous version of this app was fantastic and uncannily accurate. This version is pure garbage and is as inaccurate as it can be. I bought the previous version and now I’m stuck with an app I can’t use.
  • Consistently incorrect weather

    By Jonathan Zdziarski
    Dark Sky fails at the most basic critical task for a weather app: accurately predicting the weather. It’s been so ridiculously far off about our weather that it’s lost all credibility with me. For example, one week it predicted 6” of snow over several days. We live in the south. Weather Channel predicted nothing but rain and that’s what we ended up with. In fact, no city anywhere near us experienced snow. Other times, Dark Sky predicts a week of rain, and then day by day it gets moved off - by the end of the week, you’ve had nothing but clear skies. In contrast, Weather Channel has predicted our weather consistently accurate, to the point that we know the weather is going to be the opposite of whatever Dark Sky says. This last week was the last straw. Dark Sky predicted snow on a day that it was 46 out! Of course, we got the rain that Weather Channel forecast. It’s time to delete this app. Dark Sky is unable to accurately predict the WEATHER. They had one job.
  • Clean, clear, informative, super localized

    By Seven Paws
    I’ve wasted years of my life trying to figure out other Major Corporate Weather Apps’ forecasts and dodging their ads and alarmist clickbait. Thank you for Dark Sky, which tells and shows exactly what you need, no more, no less, and looks good doing it. It also pinpoints my specific rural location, not the nearby city, and catches the variations in weather that we experience. It’s the only one I use anymore.
  • Would like a night mode option...

    By Andrew9151
    The app is WAY too bright, consider putting a night mode option where everything isn’t an white. The app is very basic and could use some more customizability, different themes would be nice for users to switch from in the app. We spent 5 dollars the least we could have is more customizable options for the apps theme
  • Suggestions for improvement

    By Darthvader9
    1.The data is great...the new interface is actually a downgrade from the old one. You get used to it after a while though. Kindly fast track a new interface redesign.(please don’t try to cram too much information into one screen which is what the new interface does!) 2.Inability to permanently save a location. Every time I save a location(search and drag a location to the “saved locations”...it is lost after I close the app and the new locations are lost)
  • Was the best, but now...

    By Tony from Tulsa
    When I downloaded this app, I showed it to everyone I know. It was simple, yet everything you needed was there. It was accurate down to the minute. Then they literally changed the ENTIRE APP and created something that was less intuitive to use and just as bland as every other weather app. My vote would be to rework the entire thing back to what it was when everyone loved it. Meanwhile, I’ll be on the lookout for an app that is what this one was.
  • Radar is the worst!

    By ManNurse7
    I paid money for this?! The radar is glitchy and only gives 1 hour predictive view! I’m sure this must be a gag app. One that I wasted money on!
  • Used to be
