    Looks good, has some interesting ways of displaying common weather data


    Inaccurate on two different Android devices (one for an entire week), doesn't seem to update data quickly (or at all sometimes)

    While I want to like this app, I don't find it to be more useful or compelling as a weather app than 1Weather, WeatherBug, or The Weather Channel apps.

    Accurate, nice design, simple and intuitive. The Time Machine is awesome!


    With the new design, I find that the "sunny weather" does not come off enough from the rest

    Love this app, I've been using it since a while now but I LOVE the new interface!

People seem to love Dark Sky but I admittedly haven't tried it yet, probably because of that $3.99 price point. ...I'm writing this as a drink my $4 cup of Philz coffee. :P

It's excellent: only app I've found that can deal with crazy on again/off again Seattle rain

I had one of my favorite weather experience while using this app this summer. I was out on my porch and saw the sky turn a bit green. I was concerned so I pulled up Dark Sky to not only see what the forecast was but to look at the radar of what might be coming. As I watched the radar simulator of a GIANT cell coming towards us, suddenly it started to downpour...more like side pour... and everything went dark as night at 3pm in the afternoon. We of course like crazy people stayed out on the porch...maybe because Dark Sky showed us it was going to blow over in a matter of minutes... maybe just because we're crazy Minnesotans who love warm rain (just thankful it's not snow!). Needless to say this is the only weather app I use anymore... to chase storms... or just always.

My favorite weather app. I was one of the early adopters and have never moved it off of my main phone screen since.
