Dark Sky is my FAV of the 6 weather apps I use for various different features.
Today Weather is a close 2nd.
Even made an icon for it on the Shield.
Not as much. Check out DarkSky. Free for android paid for Apple.
This is just the first app to come to mind. I know i have told family members to download other apps for them to discover they have to pay for them and i dont.
Well, judging by Dark Sky, people get outraged for the first week or so, and then settle down. The ratings for this app were abysmal when the app came out a couple of weeks ago (around 2.7) with lots of rants about the dev screwing Android users over, etc., but has been steadily rising since.
I enjoy Dark Sky. The premium version ($2.99/year subscription) provides a "down-to-the-minute forecast", which I have found very handy knowing it's going to rain/stop raining in precisely x minutes. And it virtually pays for itself when paired with Google Opinion Rewards.
I'm doing okay with Dark Sky. It's not quite the same, but it's close enough for what I need. I opted to go for the $3/year subscription so I could get the notification with the current temperature.
If you want weather for trip planning one of the most helpful was paying for the feature on Garmin and with one button it will show you the weather hour by hour along your route. And one of the best weather apps is dark sky it's got a simple forcast and also more info if you want it like radar.
Unfortunately no. I just downloaded Dark Sky and it's honestly one of the best weather apps on either iOS or Android.
This week I'm recommending Dark Sky Hyperlocal Weather app, I pay £2.99 a year for a premium service that so far has been spot on with predicting when it's going to rain, I live in the UK and we get rain at the most annoying times, like when I've lit up the BBQ it will rain. Now I have the upper hand. The widgets are pretty good as well.
A lot of the old standby weather apps are getting worse with time. Dark Sky is actually improving. I'm cool giving them a few bucks per year.
EDIT - [link]
I like Dark Sky ([link]). The back-end is forecast.io, if you're familiar with them. They call themselves, "hyperlocal" and can offer down-to-the-minutes forecasts.
Sorry it's 2.99 and it's for DarkSky Premium. IIRC it gives you all the hyperlocal forecasts, down to the minuet alerts, widgets, etc.
They outline the features on the play store
Dark Sky for weather.
I am debating Glasswire. I use it on desktop, but wonder if the premium on android is worth it.
We can give a ballpark number for Dark Sky's amount of Android users. On Google Play, Dark Sky has between 1,000,000 and 5,000,000 downloads according to the download statistics. Assuming worst-case scenario, that's 5,000,000. Since Dark Sky is not available in markets where Google Play is not the only major store, we can safely assume that this is a rough estimate for the highest possible userbase count they have on Android. By contrast, Apple sold 72,900,000 phones in the last holiday quarter alone, which will certainly support the iOS release with Dark Sky integration, and the vast majority of those will be updated to that iOS release as well. It's a completely different scale.
> and they are lying
They aren't. Look at the bigger picture:
80% of 1.4 billion active iOS devices will have Dark Sky bundled (or whatever they end up doing) when iOS 14/15 comes out as opposed to the million+ that use the app on Android.
That alone makes the sentence you are referring valid. We are talking about ~1.1B iOS devices that will get a future iOS update that will benefit from the upgrade to the stock weather app on iOS (that's what we imagine will happen). I would prefer to secure myself 1B customers as opposed to the 1M of people who have installed my app and probably 25%-50% of them hold a subscription with me
Yep. 80% of 1.4 billion active iOS devices will have Dark Sky bundled (or whatever they end up doing) when iOS 14/15 comes out as opposed to the million+ that use the app on Android.
"Hey, here's an update. We've completely broken widgets and notifications, but we hope you like this ugly as fuck new look that crams as many ads into the app as possible. We'll be working on fixing the shit we broke at some undisclosed point in the future."
I used that app for years. Loved it, and how everything I wanted was there at a glance. I've since stopped using it and switched to Dark Sky. Fuck TWC and fuck all of their shitty products.
I have no good answer for you, lol. I literally did the same things I've always done (and what it looks like you've done). With the ones you want gone removed, have you added the new icon(s) straight from the app gallery? If so, I'll ask the two standard questions (no offense meant) 1) is everything updated? And 2) have you restarted? ��.
I use dark sky for the weather app (premium). I've really like it so far... And "starting to rain in X minutes" alerts are pretty good!
The weather widget is Dark Sky and the step widget is Google Fit :)
I'm pleased with Dark Sky. Costs $3/year but worth it for me.
Weather updates immediately, every time I check it. Knows my present location and not difficult to see other locations I frequent. The graphics are straight forward & easy to read.
Try Dark Sky, probably the most accurate app on the market for predicting rain. While you will never get an accurate 7-day forecast for pensacola, this app will probably help a lot.
Weather: I've always just used Google Now widget, or the Google Weather widget. Dark Sky does exist for Android, as well
Mail: Gmail works fine for me, but I know a lot of people that prefer Inbox. By the looks of it, Spark and Inbox appear quite similar, but I think Inbox requires a Gmail account.
Reminders: Try Calendar or Google Keep. I believe you can also set reminders with Google Now/Google Assistant. If you're looking for something stupidly in-depth, check out Informant. I grabbed it a while back on Amazon, but never really used it... it was way too in-depth for what I needed.
Stocks: Sorry, can't help you with that one.
Calendar: Google Calendar.
I use Dark Sky and it's also very accurate! Available for iOS and Android
Dark Sky for "Hyperlocal" what's-happening-in-the-next-hour. I keep the "Next Hour" graph as a widget on my homescreen.
Weather Timeline for the best looking app. Great for an overview of multiple locations, and I love that it can switch data sources so easily.
Weather Underground has the overall most accurate data, in my experience. I like the homescreen widgets a lot, and it's my main recommendation for normal people who only have one weather app, not seven.
Storm by Wunderground for layered composite radar. Fantastic wind map layer. Nice layer for their great network of Personal Weather Stations too.
Radarscope for viewing raw NWS radar data. When shit hits the fan, this is the app I have open to track severe weather.
Sunshine for my personalized morning digest notification. I like that it learns what you find 'warm', 'comfortable', 'cold', etc, and says how I'll feel throughout the day when I first wake up in the morning.
Nimbus Weather to look at NWS data through a nice Material Design interface.
I have a problem. Please send help.
It's Dark Sky, but you have to pay for premium in order to get the widget: [link]
This is my Red Dead Redemption 2 phone setup at the moment. It's black and red.
Edit: Widget is part of the Dark Sky Weather app. Icons are from the Lines Icon Pac
Dark Sky can send umbrella reminders.
I have tried dozens of weather apps and Dark Sky is the best in my opinion
> droid link? I searched for it but they all look like dodgey fake apps.
I believe this is it:
I use the app Dark Sky. In my experience it is pretty great for hyperlocal weather.
It's the Dark Sky app
Hands down the most accurate weather info I've found to be dark Sky they call it hyperlocal weather
I've been using Dark Sky
I like Dark Sky. It's done a pretty good job for me so far.
Linkme: Dark Sky Weather
EDIT: Since the bot can't find the right fucking app, this is the one I'm trying to share.
Darksky is fantastic
Dark Sky - Hyperlocal Weather
I think this is the one you were looking for.
Stupid bot, here's the actual Dark Sky:
I like Dark Sky for weather.
Dark Sky. Loved it on iOS, just came out for Android and loving it so far.
But my Nexus 5 is not eligible? Why? What does it use?
Dark Sky for me. Very localized. I'm in the UK and I find it pretty accurate.
That is Dark Sky [link]
Dark Sky Hyperlocal weather info
Dark sky app for those wondering.
I found this article from 2011 when barometer support was added in Ice Cream Sandwich and released with the Google Galaxy Nexus.
> the barometer is more likely than not intended to be a source of supplemental data for the GPS sensor, adding altitude measurements for increased accuracy
However, the WeatherSignal app introduced in 2013 pulled barometer data from phones to create crowdsourced weather data. That app isn't around anymore, but I believe Dark Sky also does the same thing.
In part. Good app, I use it too.
Thanks! The widget is from Dark Sky.
There should only be one dark sky app.
I don't have the iOS link handy at the moment.
(I used to use Weather Timeline)
Here's the link, assuming you're on Android (as there's only one Dark Sky app on the App Store.)
Is this the right one? [link]
[link] It should be. Try this?
Dark Sky Subscription
Material Unit Converter
Also consider renting a movie or purchasing a book or magazine.
The current temperature at the top is just the pixel launcher. The week long forecast is a a widget from the app "Dark Sky"
Upgrade that weather app:
Dark Sky has a subscription for premium for $3 a year. It gives you notifs, widgets, and down to the minute forecasts.
Look at Norway's predictions. They're always more reliable than the Met Office or BBC interpretation of the MET Office.
But realistically, weather radar images is what you want to look at... Also the Android app Dark Sky or the Apple / Desktop forecast.io version is also good as it gets information from multiple weather data centres.
It might have been removed already. Here: [link]
like that one and Dark sky
Clean UI, Notifications, premium cheap yearly.
This notification is from Dark Sky.
Geez. They're getting worse by the day. I can't believe they yanked their widgets now. I'm still irked they killed off the Storm app (the old version which had a LOT more info).
Try Dark Sky, Overdrop or wX. All have widgets.
It's pretty good on Android too.
I use the Dark Sky weather app, it's pretty good
It's actually (3) different ones from darksky
"Dark Sky - Hyperlocal Weather" is the full name.
Dark Sky App

I'm liking Dark Sky quite a bit.
Linkme: Dark Sky
Well that's not right.,
Dark Sky is awesome + they offer a 2 week free trial for their premium service. $2.99 yearly after that i think.
