Dark Sky Weather

Dark Sky Weather application logo

Dark Sky can tell you at a glance exactly when it will rain (or snow) up to an hour in advance, so you’re free to walk the dog or run out to lunch and know you’ll stay dry. You can also explore the most beautiful weather animation you’ve 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 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.

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.

Dark Sky Weather Reviews


Disappointing App  glsal2  1 star

Not worth it. No map. Doesn’t display what’s occurring. Very disappointed!


Less polish than promised.  gDos  2 star

The widget for this app doesn’t work. It just stays blank. It was my main reason for purchasing.


Love it  Greenie907  5 star

Love it


Service  Disatissfief  1 star

No responses to e mails. I signed up but had questions.


Great App, but needs an update  adamjown  4 star

This app is great, and works really well. My only gripe is that it looks relatively old compared to much more modern-looking weather apps in general. Other than that it’s a great app!


Great but could use improvement  Jroy9321  4 star

Great app! It’s spot on with accuracy. The only flaw is it doesn’t show the radar past the hour. Actually i think it’s less than an hour. I wish it showed a few hours into the future like other radar apps do


Too pricy for the amount of bugs  Lewandowski  1 star

The radar loop loads extremely slow, often times the precipitation will warp into crazy directions rendering this app almost useless, the UI also leaves something to be desired. Save your money until the developer takes the app seriously. This is a 99 cent app being sold for $3.99.


Great App  Trafals  5 star

Comprehensive, accurate, excellent.

Mostly not accurate anymore  A long time user &&&  2 star

When I first started using it the predictions were uncanny in their accuracy. But currently regularly wrong. It has been light rain now for three days but app says only cloudy. Not sure what has happened.


Never been correct!  judibug  1 star

Bought app from a recommendation from a friend. Told her it never was right. She said it used to be but now was worthless. She forgot to update me! I agree. Don’t waste your money.


Useless  wizz...  2 star

This app is useless. As I write this, I am in Limerick, Ireland. The app tells me the wind speed is 8 ms per hour. The wind however is howling outside and other apps tell me it is 27 ms per hour - and those apps are free.


Great- add pollen count?  M50bunny  4 star

Wish it had pollen count info. Also info on ice on the roads.


Dark Sky  C_K51  5 star

Bang on 95%of time


Top weather app  Flatbatt  5 star

Without a doubt one of the best weather apps there is. If you’re looking for a good one this is it!!


It used to be accurate..  Slith  2 star

As much as I understand the difficulty of predicting weather in Ireland, this application used to be accurate and it no longer is. Reporting dry weather for the whole day while it is pouring outside, not good. Specially when the stock Weather app does report a correct forecast and current weather.


Best weather app.  Andy.lane1  5 star

Been using this for years and it honestly is the best most accurate weather app you can buy. It’s never left me in the lurch and is always right. I highly recommend it.


Favourite places  papptak  4 star

Top app, but favourite places option is missing

GHOB Ireland

Great app!  GHOB Ireland  5 star

Love this app. So informative & 95 to 100% accuracy every time. Way to go!


Truly superb  TORd4  5 star

Always works, near 100% accurate short term forecast (I cycle everyday so value such precision), and clear design language and functionality - best weather app on iOS by far.


Waste of money  iRestore.ie  1 star

Very poor app. I live in Ireland and it’s rarely correct. Don’t waste your money on an app that asks you to tell them what the weather is doing in your area. Disappointing 👎🏻
