Four years after making its debut on iOS, the hyperlocal weather app Dark Sky has finally made its way to Android. The app has had rave reviews from iOS users for its notifications and super accurate local weather information that it provides to your exact location. It is super impressive and the user interface is clean and simple in presenting the weather information to you. What’s better, the Android app starts free and you can subscribe to the Premium version of the app for $2.99 per year if you want to do so. iOS users pay $3.99 for the app.
The free version of the app provides you a 24 hour forecast as well as a 7 day forecast. You also get outstanding weather maps as well as current conditions. The real power of course is with the
Premium account where you will get all of this plus:
· Down-to-the-minute Forecasts ·
Down-to-the-minute forecasts tell you exactly when the rain will start or stop, right where you’re standing.
· Rain Notifications and Alerts ·
Rain Notifications, Severe Weather Alerts, and Custom Alerts keep you on top of ever-changing weather conditions, without having to open the app.
· Daily Summaries ·
Schedule a Daily Summary, and we’ll send you a morning weather report right to your lock screen.
· Widgets ·
Widgets show you the weather right on your homescreen: Current conditions, next hour rain forecasts, a daily summary, and a look at the week ahead.
The good news is that you can try the premium version of the app for 10 days to see if it is right for you, again, something you can’t do with iOS.
You can download the app from the Google Play Store
