Please add more info when haptic touching on the icon. Currently it just shows current temp weather and what it feels like but there’s tonssssss if extra space. Would be super helpful to have the current temp and the next 3 or 5 days forecast at a glance when haptic touching on the icon. Update: Lately the precipitation amounts and times have been really inaccurate for my area (Western Massachusetts - Springfield area). We’ve had multiple snow storms recently. All of which dark sky said less than one inch or one inch of snow and everyone else was forecasting 6-8 inches and we wound up getting about once. I know it can happens sometimes because weather is difficult to predict but three times in a row is a little rough 😕. Please look into.

This is NOT light rain!
It is currently raining sideways outside & has been for the past hour; however, Dark Sky assures me that all we’re having is light rain. There is a severe weather advisory warning of potential hail in the next 20min that is posted IN THE APP and yet, according to this app, it’s is “lightly raining & even that will stop in 40 minutes”. In the past two years, this app has never predicted more than light rain even if the stats in its detailed forecast show we’re drowning. If the developers spent a fraction of the time on forecast accuracy that they have devoted to the UI, this would be the best weather app out there. However, they don’t & it isn’t. Do not trust its forecasts.

After a few years quite disappointed
When I first started using this app it was absolutely amazing. Then I think it was sold, new people took it over and its never been the same. Very disappointed at it’s inaccuracies and, quite frankly, nothing seperates this from any other weather app out there. It seems weather cannot be forecast anymore unless you have your own weatherstation :-( It’s gotten even worse. For example forecast for yesterday was NO SNOW we got 4” forecast for today 100% rain, in actually no rain no clouds 100% SUN! What a waste. Don’t know what changed but sure wish it went back to the original developers so it would be as accurate as it once was. Now it’s a complete joke!!! EDITORS CHOICE? 😂😂😂😂
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.
