Dark Sky is a revolutionary weather app that will change the way you get your weather forecast. The app’s primary feature is to provide you with the most accurate weather forecast for the next 60 minutes. If it’s going to rain, the app will tell you when, and how hard, with pretty good accuracy, especially if it is in the next hour.

The app delivers a lot more information than your normal free weather app, and is great for outdoor enthusiasts. You can get details like wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, visibility and “feels like” temperature which takes humidity or wind chill into account. However, the detailed forecast is really only for the next hour, so if you need to know more than that, you might be out of luck, even though there is a basic forecast for the rest of the week, which is still more detailed than most apps.
