Dark Sky - Weather Radar, Hyperlocal Forecasts, and Storm Alerts
(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 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 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.
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.
- 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)
