Dark Sky is a weather app that provides quick data on rain.
What's NewThe inevitable update that fixes a bunch of bugs after our big 3.0 update. In particular:
1) UK users are now defaulted to Celsius as they should be.
2) Fixed a bug that would occasionally display the forecast for the wrong location when returning to the app.
App DescriptionDark Sky can tell you at a glance exactly when it will rain (or snow) up to an hour in advance, so youâ€™re free to walk the dog or play another set of tennis and know youâ€™ll stay dry. You can also explore the most beautiful weather animation youâ€™ve ever seen, both forward in time or back.
YOUR WEATHER, DOWN TO THE MINUTE
Using GPS, Dark Sky is able to create forecasts for your precise location. And because Dark Sky focuses on the next hour, we are able to give you minute-to-minute predictions.
STUNNING RADAR ANIMATIONS
The same technology that powers Dark Skyâ€™s predictions also allows us to make the worldâ€™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 Skyâ€™s beautiful radar animation lets you see the actual path of the storm: how it moved in the past, and where itâ€™s going in the future.
Dark Sky can send you an alert before it starts raining at your exact location. Even if you haven't opened the app in days, Dark Sky will know when you're in the path of a storm.
NOTE: Dark Sky currently supports the United States, including Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico and the UK, Ireland, and surrounding areas.
