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.



  • Animated Map is Awful

    All in all the app is good. The animated map loads in sections and take minutes to finally becomes truly smooth. Pisses me off every time I really need the interactive map.
  • Don’t buy !

    Disappointed , I paid for this app because of reviews but it doesn’t load often even with a good signal. I don’t usually leave reviews but I’m so dissatisfied I thought I should. The radar is not very good
  • Fine weather app but incons with notifications

    By Ninjustin23
    This is a good wea app but I purchased it for weather notifications otherwise I'd have just stuck with the default app. Not getting alerts for servere weather is a huge problem. The app knew I was under a tornado warning when I opened it why did I have to be alerted by a co-worker?
  • Pretty, but inaccurate

    By robsalzz
    The alerts when it’s about to rain are nice, but they come 10 minutes before it does. The forecast more than 4 hours out is, unfortunately, incredibly inaccurate, so you can’t use this app to plan your day. I’m convinced the only reason people like it is because there aren’t ads and it’s pretty. That’s about it.
  • Terrible Map

    By iLeonidas51
    Using radar is impossible. No labels on roads or highways, small towns that are pretty much non-existent show up first and you have to zoom in to see the names of ones that are actually populated. Also names of cities/towns only appear on specific zoom that is individual to each one. As you zoom in and out different ones show up and different ones disappear, makes it impossible to track any kind of weather outside of your current location.
  • Less reliable than any other weather app I’ve ever used.

    Garbage. Got caught in rain more times than I could count. Do not buy.
  • Great App

    By Myrkur007
    Love the way the app looks on my new iPhone XS Max after having the 7 Plus this new scene really shows the app quite well.
  • Waste of money

    By Stephanies1688
    It has some neat features but it's not as good as free apps out there. Wish I didn't waste my money.
  • So glad I pulled the trigger and bought this app

    By Coosaw2004
    I have wanted a simple weather app that not only is easy to read but actually loads quickly every time. I’ve used this app for a couple days and I’m impressed with how it looks and works. Easy to interpret the forecast that day, but also easy access to more detailed hourly info if that’s what you need. I also like that the extra info such as humidity, sunset and other stuff is a simple tap on the temp. The entire main screen doesn’t have to be filled with every piece of weather data available. Most of us don’t need to know the barometric pressure every day, but it’s lurking nearby if we do. Good job folks. For the rest of us, this is well worth the money. Truly a “you get what you pay for” situation.
