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.



  • Meh

    By SaraaahC
    It’s quite buggy. I just updated the app, and now it won’t even load. For nearly $4, I expected more.
  • Missing Kelvin

    By VoidEng
    Really one of the best Weather Apps, wish it could present temperatures in Kelvin.
  • False Screenshot

    By Slarvey
    You cannot set UV or any other custom notifications- only temperature. The Dev is lying to us.
  • Used to be good

    By dmbchik
    This app used to be amazing. And has gotten worse and worse. The amount of times it has said that there wasn’t going to be rain and then it completely downpoured is too many lately. I have gotten caught in the rain 3 times the past week when the app said 0% chance of rain!!! WHAT THE HELL!
  • Finally bigger fonts in areas

    Finally getting UI Forecast is still wonky / off / worse than apple weather for me in my area of SoCal.
  • 6.5.2 faulty, otherwise great

    By JKinBK
    6.5.2 does not work on iPhone XS w ios 12.4. Otherwise, this app is great. I hope they fix it soon.
  • Eliminated the best feature

    By cnicole1919
    The best thing about this app was the rain chart that would show you when it would be raining and how heavy it would be raining. They eliminated that with the update and now it’s like other weather apps. Very disappointed.
  • Used to be good

    By DougB80
    I happily paid for an app that gave accurate weather but sadly I can no longer count on dark sky to do so. It seems to just take an average and guess for the week. When a radar clearly shows a massive storm approaching the app tells me it will be cloudy with little to no chance of rain until it is actually raining.
  • Love latest update

    By marymar2
    This detailed view of all info got a specific time us great — and visually appealing. Congratulations, Dark Sky. You have the best weather app by far.
  • Terrible radar

    By Ryan294774
    Used to be my favorite app but the radar is a joke now. It’s 60-90 minutes behind other apps, it just doesn’t update.
