    Accessibility Details Lacking

    This is a fantastic in-depth weather application that I’ve found helpful since purchasing after Apple’s investment. This being said there are many aspects that Apple should implement for more cross compatibility between iOS and Dark Sky. For example, I should be able to add as many cities to my saved list that I have on my normal Apple weather app. I also think a change in the light/tone of the app display throughout the day could be unique. There are also many paths to be taken with new Apple Watch features. I hope to see more growth for what seems to be a stagnant period for this app - let’s get some more development!

    Meh...

    Does not highlight zones/counties with active weather alerts (seems like such a basic feature) like Weather Underground does. Just a bit spammy with alerts for rain start/stop. If rain stops in 5min but starts again 10min later, did it really stop raining? 🤔 Being an Apple owned app, it would be nice if they updated it for ios14 as new-style widgets are at the top and old-style widgets are at the bottom, this has broken my flow for widgets.

    Needs some work & widget

    Ignoring the fact that the forecast isn’t always accurate, the app has some flaws. It needs a widget to work in iOS 14. Bummer it hasn’t rolled out something. The future radar almost never loads correctly. It’s incredibly frustrating to determine the low temperature for a day because of the way it’s organized.

Descriptions

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.
