Dark Sky is a weather app that provides quick data on rain.
What's New- Bug fixes
- Some improvements to VoiceOver support. (I'm still not 100% satisfied with it. As someone who doesn't use VoiceOver, I'm flying a bit blind here [haha, a little vision-impairment humor for you]. If you use VoiceOver and have suggestions on how to improve accessibility, I'd love to hear it. Shoot an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org)
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 run out to lunch 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.
(Dark Sky is available in the US, UK and Ireland.)
YOUR WEATHER, DOWN TO THE MINUTE
Using GPS, Dark Sky is able to create forecasts for your precise location, giving you minute-to-minute predictions for the next hour and detailed forecasts for the next day and week.
BEAUTIFUL WEATHER 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 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.
The Dark Sky Notification Center Widget tells you at a glance what's going to happen in the next hour, so you don't even have to unlock your phone to quickly check the weather before heading out.
