Would be 5 star for one feature
This app is almost entirely excellent, I like the daily weather report and announcement of when it might start drizzling or rain beginning in my area. It’s often very accurate. My only issue is with the map. You have a weird “thermal-vision” type color gradient. And with my eyes I see the mild red and the severe red to be the exact same. The colors should be noticeably different, and preferably NOT the same color. Otherwise that’s confusing and defeats the purpose of your radar information. My issue is why does it have to be different? We’ve all grown up with the exact same color schemes in every local and national weather service map. If you could give us that option to switch to the standard for our radar and home screen use, I would easily give this app 5 stars. But because it’s not there and the two colors are too close together, it’s 3/5. That’s how important of a change this is to me. Written during a heavy thunderstorm.

Temperatures are still backwards on Apple Watch
The iPhone app shows low temp on the left, high on the right—as it should. But the Watch app has them backwards: high on the left, low on the right. Both in the Watch app itself and in complications. It’s VERY user-unfriendly to have the most commonly-read weather data be completely reversed between the phone and the Watch. How can they not match each other? (And it’s the reverse of Apple’s own weather displays, and the reverse of how any numerical graph is read from left to right like English text.) Many days I look at the first number by habit—the high—and think it’s the low by force of habit. And vice versa. You can end up dressing completely wrong for the weather that way. I like the rain forecasting—very accurate for me in Ohio—but I have to take stars away because this mistake has gone on for multiple versions. I’ve stopped recommending it to Watch users, because everyone seems to share the same confusion.

Widget is broken
Why does the location setting have be set to “always on” for the widget to work? The widget used to work just fine. It’s as if you broke that part just to be able to harvest more data from your paying customers. If you need more money, make it a subscription service. But I will not trade my privacy and data for convenience. If that is changed I will update my review and rate your, honestly, wonderful app appropriately. Thank you.
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.
