Dark Sky Weather by Jackadam

Dark Sky Weather 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 and the next week, 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 5.2.1

iOS 10 update!

- Fancy new visual notifications:
- Pull down on a Dark Sky notification to see a detailed and pretty next-hour graph.
- Out with "Rain starting soon!" text and in with the more useful "Rain starting in 12 min, stopping 25 min later"
- One less reason to bother opening the app!

- Lock Screen Widget:
- Current conditions
- Next hour hyperlocal forecast & graph
- Forecasts for each of the next five days
- One less reason to bother opening the app!

- Apple Watch
- Mostly behind-the-scenes improvements to make loading quicker and notifications snappier.

- A basket-full of bug fixes (although, no promises that I didn't just introduce a bunch more).

Thanks for supporting Dark Sky! If you find it useful, and like what we're doing, please consider rating the app!

Customer Reviews

Great App but latest update broke most useful feature (3 stars)
This is a stellar weather app. Out of the many different ones I have tried this is the only one that remains on my phone. The hyperlocal forecasting is fantastic, especially for here in South Florida where it can go from bright sunny skies to a downpour in a matter of minutes. However the update for iOS 10 has broken the most important part of this app to me, the Notification Center widget. It is now just a blank box with no forecast informa

Once you try it, you'll be hooked (5 stars)
Once upon a time, in ye olde dayes, hyperlocal forecasts were only available to farmers, airlines, etc., by paying lots of money. Now, your little device will give them to you, up to the minute accurate, wherever you are. Hyperlocal forecasting means you'll know when rain is starting in 20 minutes, not merely that there is, say, a 50% chance of rain in the afternoon. I appreciate that the app is not merely keeping up with new IOS releases bu

Latest update broke things (4 stars)
The update for iOS 10 (version 5.2.1?) has broken stuff. The settings page, as others note. More important for me: the display (on my iPad mini but not on my iPhone) of future days now has vast amounts of screen between one day and the next. You have to scroll down quite a ways even to find that this page has any content. Otherwise, and apart from the fact that it doesn't rain very often when the app says it will, this is the only weather ap
