Dark Sky App for iOS Predicts the Weather, on the Hour

by Hazel Chua

There are a lot of weather apps out there that can tell you if it’s going to be generally rainy or sunny today. If they say today’s going to be “cloudy with light rainshowers,” you probably wouldn’t have any idea what time of day the rain clouds will come rolling in.

Then came the Dark Sky app for iOS, which has changed how the weather is predicted. At least for iPhone users who have it installed, anyway.

Dark Sky App
Dark Sky is the brainchild of Adam Grossman and Jack Turner, who raised $39,376 last November 2011 on Kickstarter to fund the development of the app. They’ve touted Dark Sky as “an accurate short-term weather predictor” which makes use of data from the National Weather Service.

Once fired up, the Dark Sky app makes use of GPS to provide weather forecasts for the next twenty-four hours of your day, based on your precise location.

Never dress inappropriately whenever you leave your home because you’ll know exactly when you’ll need to bring a jacket–or leave it at home.

The Dark Sky app is available for download on the iTunes App Store for $3.99.
