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.



  • Bigger font/character size

    By rkphil
    The size of font and character being used to show the temp is way to small. Would like it bigger or a way to blow the screen up without having to take a photo. I’m using an iPhone plus screen and still find it very difficult to read. Please fix this.
  • Miss the Apple Watch future

    By Brian85 M.
    Would love to give 5 star but since the update and no longer works on my Apple Watch I have to give lower rating. Will change it once it works again for my watch.
  • Terrible update

    By Designer.eb
    Aside from an unattractive aesthetic, the usability is unnecessarily complicated and frustrating in the updated app. No longer is it simple to get today's high/low and precipitation forecast at a glance. Location detection is crap now, though I do like that it finally suggests a location when you type. I'm pretty disappointed that the app I paid for no longer exists.
  • Infograph complication

    By Inderr Siingh
    The app is good. However the complication do not update frequently when I use the Infograph watch face. I have to either restart the watch or use some other place for the complication.
  • Not updating on Apple Watch

    By Casio48
    The weather is not updating on the Apple Watch as of the latest update 🤬
  • Update destroyed this app

    By upset fan 1234
    I rave to EVERYONE about this app, or at least I used to until I update it and see this monstrosity. This was perhaps the best app with the best interface on the entire app store, the only one I’ve been able to easily see future humidity predictions. No more. This ridiculous interface has made it almost unusable. Five of my friends who also used to love this app are now looking for alternatives. Go back to what you had or lose me and 50% of the users that used to cherish you and sing your praises.
  • Location access.

    By I am Scott a
    This app is accessing my location without my permission. It’s set to “while using app” but it’s accessing it all the time. This app should be pulled from the App Store
  • Crashes on Gen 1 Apple Watch. The complication does not work either.

    By Zakatov
    With the recent update, app no longer works on the original Watch, crashes to home screen. The complication also does not sync up with the phone.
  • I don’t live in New York

    By Fraying
    Please stop showing me the weather in New York. I don’t live in New York. Why do I have to tell the app where I live every time I open it?
  • No longer working...
