Dark Sky Weather Pros

Money well spentI heard of this app on numerous occasions but I was very sceptical of the feedback as it was getting rather good reviews which is very rare especially when the price is above the norm for weather apps. However I was eventually sold when i noticed a news story about this app also giving it very good reviews, the iOS App Store also showed it as an “Editors Choice” app so I decided to purchase it. I can honestly say it seriously works and on two occasions within an hour of purchasing the app i saw that the weather app was showing participation in a certain amount of time, and sure enough on the two occasions it rained within 10 seconds and it stopped at the time it was suggesting, I’m always with my family doing outside activity days at weekends and this app will probably take over my life so to speak but in a positive way. So trust me its MONEY WELL SPENT.Toddmeister1Version: 5.3.8

Good App - could be improvedI really like this app - it’s generally accurate, as good as anything else I’ve used anyway. Their data privacy policy is more robust than other apps out there. An improvement that could be made is the reporting of cloud cover / clear weather. The app uses shades of grey to report clear/partly cloudy/mostly cloudy skies. Ultimately this means you get a wall of grey throughout the day which seems off when you look outside and you’ve got bright sunshine and almost no cloud cover. When you look at the cloud cover % you can see the app is correct, but it’s colour scheme gives the wrong impression in my opinion..Jonny lloydVersion: 6.8.4


Dark Sky Weather Cons

Beauty is only skin deepWithin ten miles of a major tech hub, I expect accurate and current weather information. But as the March 2018 East Coast cyclone was—hopefully—making its last lashes, I was concerned. We’d had power out, nearby injuries and even deaths from the storm. Friday night had seen a domino of falling 65-foot trees leave a 200-foot line of tree wreckage starting 30 feet from my property line, luckily in conservation land. Nor’easters typically finish with strong west winds, which would aim any more falling trees right at my house, my shed, my garage. Clearly the wind was still from the north, and seemed strong and gusty. So I pulled out Dark Sky and checked. It told me my exact location, and that I had 10 mph winds; it doesn’t tell gusts. This was unbelievable. I hit a major web site and it confirmed what I was viewing: steady 18 mph winds with gusts to 39 mph. That’s a huge difference in capacity for damage. Like I said, I am only ten miles from a major city. Dark Sky has given me generic and imprecise weather info for months, but I never looked into it closely. I am removing this app from my phone permanently. I consider its weather information hazardously untrustworthy..AWolfe_IIVersion: 5.3.7

Inaccurate and imprecise.Given that it’s £3.99 for this app you’d expect it to be accurate more than 80% of the time given the amount of free information around that IS accurate. Also there is no cloud cover on the chart, and the grading of the temperature colour (the difference in colour per degree) is so small that you get very little definition outside of global or contextual perspective. Sure, I can see from the colours that it’s colder in the Arctic than it is in the U.K., but across England, there’s no difference in the colour, so it basically useless. I was hoping it would be able to show me on a map of London the different temperatures with a colour map, given the number of micro climates in London this would be a useful feature, and given the data available one that is not hard to implement. A shame this app falls short of a useful mark. Essentially, a waste of memory..HibbadehibbaVersion: 6.8.4
