Dark Sky: an excellent weather app for rainy climates

Do you like weather apps? Do you live somewhere that has a particularly wet climate? The redesigned Dark Sky is for you. Dark Sky was released some time ago as a way to be alerted just before rain hit. The app uses a complex back-end service that is uncannily accurate in almost all locations I’ve tested it. The latest version of the app enhances this, but also offers more features that makes the app feel like a general purpose weather tool.

The app keeps its staple rain map and prediction screens, but also adds information on temperature and a seven-day forecast with general weather information, as well as a temperature graph. It’s a worthy replacement for your iPhone’s stock weather app.

Dark Sky is $3.99 on the App Store, though it is only available in regions where its rain predicting API is supported.
