Dark Sky offers 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.) YOUR WEATHER, DOWN TO THE MINUTE Dark Sky delivers forecasts for your precise location, giving you minute-by-minute predictions for the next hour and hour-by-hour forecasts for the next week. BEAUTIFUL WEATHER ANIMATIONS The same technology that powers Dark Sky’s predictions also allows us to make beautifully smooth radar animations. These animations show you the path of the storm, including how it moved up to now and where it’s going next. NOTIFICATIONS Dark Sky comes with advanced notification options. Receive up-to-the-minute alerts before it starts raining at your exact location, get notified of severe weather alerts (for events such as thunderstorms, flooding, hurricanes etc.) or even create your own custom notifications covering the next 24 hours for things such as temperature, wind, precipitation and more. Dark Sky will tell you what you need to know, when you need to know it. WIDGET The Dark Sky widget tells you at a glance what’s going to happen in the next hour or the next week, so you don’t even have to unlock your phone to quickly check the weather before going out. TIME MACHINE Explore weather in the past or future. Choose a date and see historical weather data or future predictions based on seasonal averages. APPLE WATCH Dark Sky looks great on your wrist. Get notifications and view the weather for the next week with the Dark Sky app built for Apple Watch. Dark Sky is available in the US, UK and Ireland.



  • Mediocre at best

    By Should be so much better
    I paid for this before trying at as I trusted both the reviews and Apple, what a mistake. I believe I see the weather channel logo at times which confuses me, and the there’s the whole reliability of the app, which it isn’t. Been standing out side in the rain and it’s showing it’s sunny??? Try to pull up the radar during or before a storm, it’s offline! Apple Watch reliability? Forget it. When it glitches, there are so many steps to take both on the watch and on your phone it’s a waste time. Otherwise it just doesn’t work. Except for the short burst of time it does work. At this point I just use it for the temp. Otherwise I’ve lost faith in this app.
  • Accurate

    It never seem to be wrong!
  • Needs More VoiceOver Improvements

    By Brailliant_Bryanah
    A few updates ago, Apple announced that there were some VoiceOver improvements. I do not notice a single thing.I really like the app, but it needs more work in terms of VoiceOver accessibility. I would be happy to update this rating and this review whenthe app is more accessible.
  • Love this app

    By Richard Cacciato
    This is hands down the best weather app in my opinion. It’s particularly useful because as a cyclist in NYC it alerts me to rain before it starts so I can plan my trip. It has often prevented me from getting wet. I recommend it highly. My only complaint (or rather suggestion) is that I wish I could save more favorite places. Currently it allows only 5. Please increase the number of favorites—I see no reason at all for a limit. Thank you.
  • Used to love this app.

    By VerbVerbal
    There’s this amazing view where you can use a slider to see where the storms are moving over time - really helpful feature for travel plans. The slider used to let you see all through to the next day. But unfortunately, you can now only see the last 6 hours (who wants to see past weather?) and only about 1 hour into the future. If you zoom way out you can see into the next day, but at that point you’re too far out to see which towns and roads the clouds are moving over. Why they changed this feature I will never know. The slider now goes right off the screen and looks like a bug. People check a weather app to see the future weather, not the past weather. Hopefully they will reconsider this poor design choice and become the amazing weather app they once were.
  • Why no Android?!

    By Louie Cafarella
    This app is definitely 5 ⭐️ But why’d Apple have to remove it from Android! I have an iPhone and a Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. I need it on both!
  • Use to be accurate

    By videditor1067
    Seems like since Apple became involved with Dark Sky the app has gone downhill. Rain percentages don’t add up correctly. Rains more often than predicted. Time to look for another weather app.
  • Best weather app

    By BillGammon
    Seldom far off
  • Great app but..

    By teslalover212
    This is a great app for only 3.99 but I would like to see added widgets and a radar added for free besides the app price but I love the interface and theme the app uses great app!!
  • The weather channel free app is better than this

    By wish it had more
    The weather channel free app is better than this. I can only imagine what the paid app is like but I’m not a subscription kind of person, that app requires a monthly fee, used to be a one time fee year’s ago, not anymore, but either way dark sky pales in comparison.
