Dark Sky – Hyperlocal Weather, Radar, and Storm Alerts by Jackadam

Dark Sky – Hyperlocal Weather, Radar, and Storm Alerts Screenshots


Dark Sky can tell you at a glance exactly when it will rain (or snow) up to an hour in advance, so youre free to walk the dog or run out to lunch and know youll stay dry. You can also explore the most beautiful weather animation youve ever seen, both forward in time or back.

(Dark Sky is available in the US, UK and Ireland.)

Using GPS, 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.

The same technology that powers Dark Skys predictions also allows us to make the worlds 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 Skys radar animation lets you see the actual path of the storm: how it moved in the past, and where its going in the future.

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.

The Dark Sky Notification Center Widget tells you at a glance what's going to happen in the next hour, so you don't even have to unlock your phone to quickly check the weather before heading out.

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.

What's New in Version 5.0.3

– Made map loading smarter, reducing data usage and improving load times.

– Fixed Apple Watch loading bug that would sometimes cause the display to be blank.

– Fixed bug that was occasionally causing location names to display funkily (Am I allowed to adverb “funky”? Or should it be “…to display in a funky manner”?).

– Lowered threshold for “Feels Like” temperature to appear.

Customer Reviews

Accurate weather app (5 stars)
The new update that was sent out for this app has fixed a problem but I realized that their is another problem I am not receiving daily weather updates as a notification and I love being notified about the weather daily please fix this issue and yes I am happy that I have such a nice app that is why I give it 5 stars but please fix the daily notification issue I find it rather annoying that it does not work

Cut the crap (5 stars)
Seriously? Funkily? Your apps latest update is filled with fake words? Great app. Stop working on catch phrases though. And just work on the app* if I didn't already have it, the newest description and update would have made me a non buyer. Grow up. Or you will lose. And you shouldn't, it's a fine app. Sincerely,

Me/common sense/grown ups

It really does do what they say it does (5 stars)
If it says it will rain in 10 mins, then their prediction holds up.

Plus, I love the newest features in 5.x! The new timeline view is quite helpful and I'm looking forward to the daily updates and alerts.
