Bin your phone's rubbish weather app – Dark Sky tells you EXACTLY where it'll snow

STILL using a knackered old weather app that came pre-installed on your phone? Try Dark Sky instead.
This acclaimed weather app gives you hyperlocal info – so you can find out when it’s literally about to rain or snow on you.
dark sky The Dark Sky weather app offers “hyperlocal” forecasts based on your EXACT location
Dark Sky uses powerful GPS tech to create forecasts for your precise location.
Then it’ll give you minute-by-minute predictions for the next hour.
So you’ll be able to find out very easily whether it’s going to rain on your morning walk.
And a genius notification system will alert you a minute before it’s due to start raining or snowing at your exact location.
DARK SKY You’ll be able to track weather patterns around the world
Dark Sky isn’t just clever – it’s beautiful too.
You get awesome weather animations that will show you exactly how the actual path of a storm is moving.
This means seeing how it moved in the past, and where it’ll be in the future.
You can also create custom notifications for things like wind or temperature.
And there are hour-by-hour forecasts for the next day and week.
If you’re using the standard iPhone weather app, you’ll be seriously impressed by Dark Sky.
It’s managed to rack up a respectable 4.5/5 score on the Apple App Store, and a great 4/5 score on the Google Play Store.
The only downside is that you’ll have to fork out £3.99 to download it on iOS. And on Android, it’s free to install, but you’ll need to pay a monthly subscription to get access to all of the features.

But it works on Android phones, iPhone, iPad and the Apple Watch, so it’s definitely worth the investment.
