Because premium is only accessible with a subscription, it is currently impossible to pay for it with just google play store credit. If it were not for that I would rate this app far higher. I love the map smoothness and update speed. The design is minimal and clean. However since the app notifications are inaccessible without premium, it is of little utility to me at this point. Please allow some method of obtaining premium using only play store credit.
This is the ONLY app I ever paid for because is was incredibly accurate. The past few months it has gone downhill. What happened? The GPS pinpoints me down to my street address and says it's 90 degrees, yet the Weather Channel and my own outdoor thermometer say 70. Dark Sky says heavy rain for the next hour when there is barely a few drops sprinkling down. Dark Sky used to be insanely accurate. What happened?
Great weather app for accurate, down to the minute weather. Coming from iOS to android, I've been spoilt by the Dark Sky Apple Watch app, I was slightly expecting to have this on my Wear Watch, however there is no watch app for Dark Sky yet. I will update my review to 5 stars once I can get Dark Sky on my watch :-). Other than that, well worth the yearly subscription price!
Great app for aviators — data's all available elsewhere but this scores for accessing real-time, short-term info. Standing in a field staring at an approaching sky... best app on my phone. 5* if windspeed option in knots; can do it in my head, but...
Looks great. Forecasts are about as accurate as anything else. Biggest issue is inconsistency. Will show a rain cloud image for a day and 34%, drill into that day and the highest predicted rain is 17%, and rain is only expected for 3 hours in the early morning, partly cloud/clear the rest of the day. For an app that has such a focus on UX and design, needing to review each day's details to get the real forecast really limits the usefulness of the app. Paid for the year, won't be renewing if things don't change.
While I love the accurate, to-the-minute local forecasts, there seems to be no inclusion of thunderstorms. This is too significant of a weather event to constantly see "rain for the hour" or "drizzle in ten minutes" when it is thundering and lightning outside. If I'm missing something, please message me.
