A powerful tool that offers a ton of data, some locked behind a paywall. The app, being called Dark Sky, interestingly doesnt have a dark (black, not dark gray) theme. The data visualizations are easy enough to use but when compared to Weather Underground, seem to be lacking some design flare. The globe in Dark Sky, though, is interesting and unique when compared to other services, although I'm sure some map start up out there offers a black themed globe.
Good app. Generally reliable but on tour in Italy and France has frequently forecast drizzle when we have had clear blue skies. Update in September....quite annoyed now at the lack of radar anywhere except UK. Can hardly say it is hyperlocal as per blurb. Shall not renew.
The forecast widget is constantly showing the forecast for some other part of the country. Also I have received alerts saying snow would be starting in 30 minutes, but it's over 70f outside so snow is impossible. When I email support they tell me to just uninstall and reinstall. But that doesn't solve the problem. Therefore I am giving this 1 star because of the inaccuracies and LACK of support.
Update: it use to work fine on my Samsung S, however on my Samsung J727 does not. Which for a wheelchair user weather change notifications are critical. This review was written when I using a Samsung S: It was amazing during hurricane Harvey when it came through Houston Texas. It was only off minute here and there on the rain notifications rarely. The only thing I don't care for too much is the radar view but that is purely personal, it is both very functional and accurate. I am in a wheelchair and so to know about rain in a few moments is a incredibly important tool to my daily life.
Its great! It lets you know to the hour or 10 mins if there is rain in your area. Also it shows how heavy the rain will be throughout the hour. There is a pay wall but its reasonably cheap for a year subscription. I say its worth it!
Used to be a great app. But seems like lately weather is so off and not correct at all! Right now 55 and rainy weather app says it is mostly cloudy and 57 no precipitation in sight... I see plenty coming down.🤐
