While this app is stunning, the forecasts are not. For example, my area is currently under a winter weather advisory and there is no indication of that. It shows a clear forecast. That's dangerous. If the forecast is not going to reflect NWS info, perhaps a sync to .gov warnings would be helpful and safe. I thought the radar was accurate, but I just checked Wednesday night (in the PAST) and no precipitation was visible, yet people died on snowy roads here. Totally regret this subscription renewal.

Hit or miss in Great Lakes area. I like the simplicity of the interface, wish it was a little more accurate. I'll use till subscription runs out to see if it improves. Radar to map sync when zooming in/out could be better.. SUBTRACTING a star, as notification screen tells me "Light rain stopping...." , it's 23 degrees F outside, I hardly think its raining!

Unbelievably wrong for winter warnings. National Weather Service has a warning for 13" of snow, we've already got 3" and yet this dumb app says I'm going to get less than 1". Absolutely ridiculous. Dont waste your money! Full Review

Really cool app, especially the almost real-time precipitation notifications. One thing I would ask for is to separate the status bar temperature from the notification shade timeline. I like the timeline but I don't want the temperature in my status bar Full Review

LVery useful and seems accurate - used for 10 months. So I'd say it is except it is annoying when I am in my home that sometimes it gives my neighbours address instead of mine and sometimrs the address of a house in the next street, sometimes just the street I live in which is very long -but never my address. NOT really relevant to the forecast but still slightly irritating Full Review

Just what I needed! Not all the weather everywhere, just where I am. Right now, in 15 minutes, in the next few days. Worth the premium version at only 2.99 per year. Full Review

The app is very nice, but the reports are so inaccurate it's shameful. It's been snowing here all morning, radar on all the other apps is solid blue across the whole state for snow. Dark sky? Mostly cloudy, clear radar. Can't rely on this app for weather reporting. Full Review

If it has my location, and can see that I'm in the UK, why does it still set my units to USA? Fahrenheit is no good to me Full Review

Rubbish, it's currently snowing and yet the app says heavy rain. And yes I do have location on. £2.99 for this ? I'll go to the more accurate and more attractive and FREE Morecast. Full Review

Solid weather app with the ability to report your actual weather to help them adjust. Con: It uses a 24 hour cycle for highs and lows, so if it was 75 degrees at 5 past midnight and falls by 30 degrees by daybreak and stays there, you might prepare for a 75 degree day and be sorely mistaken. Standard rule is daytime high, and I'd like to see Dark Sky make the switch in order to be more reliable. Full Review

Recently installed. Love it thus far, the BEST UI for at a glance conceptual weather, and a simple tap for a more detailed, very visual breakdown as well. You really nailed it on the UI front, excellent job. Will subscribe to premium come springtime, because as a painter, having my phone proactively warn me about weather is something I've looked for forever. Full Review

Spookily accurate...and I mean accurate (sometimes to the minute)! Has to be the best weather app for my area. Only down side is it is expensive as it is £2.99 per year! Full Review

This app is great for quick weather info. It tells you when the rain will begin and end and instant temps. I love the weekly forecast at a glance and the radar map to see what's coming! Full Review

Not at all accurate. I've had the app for 3 days and every day it's said there won't be rain or that rain is over 50 miles away, yet it's rained. This morning the app says the weather is cloudy and overcast yet it's a beautiful clear sunny day. I've submitted reports but I didn't get the app to do weather reporting for them. Will uninstall UPDATE - i reinstalled today (08/12/17) to see if the app was any better. The Uk is being braced for snow and nobody really knows where and when it may snow. Hyperlocal weather should know though, right? At 12pm it said Heavy Snow in 1 hour. At 12:55 it changed to light rain in 1 minutes stopping in 8 minutes. I went outside to find a very light snow flurry for about 5 minutes. This app doesn't seem to do weather forecasting whereby it tells you what to expect, more it seems to just tell you what the weather is doing at any given point, and not very accurately. That's not weather forecasting, it's the digital equivalent of looking out the window! Will uninstall. Again. Full Review

This is the easiest App to use for a weather reading or forecast that I've ever used. The only other one that comes close is the "Weather Underground" App. Full Review

I've used many weather apps over the years but this one is sufficiently accurate and easy to use that I've used it daily for 6 months and am sticking with it. Not 100% accurate, but good enough and much better than the others. Full Review

I'm going to have to cancel, it's lost location support on my note 8. Loved it up until this issue became a consistent problem. I've done everything from uninstall to resetting phone. Full Review

Very accurate "hyperlocal" forecast... Useful for people who live outside of major cities as we typically get a generic forecast from our local channels that covers the entire viewing area... Precipitation starting or ending warnings are often eerily accurate Full Review

This app is amazing. I have been using it for about 6 months now. It has been correct on the weather for the day and the night whenever I have needed it and the weather has been what this saya. This has even been more accurate than the met office. Very easy to use as well. Happy to pay yearly subscription for this would highly recommend it Full Review

Why is this app a one time fee on the app store but here it's a yearly fee? It's a shame because this was my weather app of choice on iOS, but here? Forget it. Full Review

Don't hate these guys for doing something that Google lets them do but Apple won't. Give the free trial a go. If it's useful to you, then pay the $3/yr. If not, uninstall and be on your way. Full Review
