What is Dark Sky?
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 play another set of tennis 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.
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 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 beautiful 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.
PUSH NOTIFICATIONS 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.
The Dark Sky iOS app will no longer be available beginning on December 31st, 2022 and, as of this date, already purchased versions of the app will no longer provide weather data. The Dark Sky API and website will continue to function until March 31st, 2023.

- Upvoted a comment on Dark SkyThey were excellent app for all persons wishing to get ad-free weather with your privacy. However, they were purchased by Apple Inc in 2020. Thus they closed down all non-Apple related apps, such as Droid and Internet Web. I remains to be seen if they will keep their sterling service intact or be dismantled by Apple. App itself i recommend, but only if your Apple user. They are no longer independent.
- thinks AccuWeather is an alternative to Dark SkyI like AccuWeather more because it is not owned by the bloody apple company which suddenly drops support for any device other than apple made. Also supposedly AccuWeather has higher forecast accuracy.
