I Would Be Lost Without This App
I have been using Dark Sky’s for several years now. It was neat at my grandchildren‘s ball game to take out my umbrella and everyone look around like I was crazy. Sky was clear and then suddenly a downpour would start and they would would run for shelter. It is 95 percent accurate on letting me know how long before the rain starts. Everyone always asks me which weather app I have.

I bought this app because I’d heard great things about how incredibly accurate its forecasts are. However, after a few weeks of use I’ve found it to be extremely unreliable. The radar will show no rain in the area and no rain forecast in the next hour and then 5 minutes later it’s pouring. I might as well go back to the free Weather Channel app.

Used to be good
I happily paid for an app that gave accurate weather but sadly I can no longer count on dark sky to do so. It seems to just take an average and guess for the week. When a radar clearly shows a massive storm approaching the app tells me it will be cloudy with little to no chance of rain until it is actually raining.
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.
