Dark Sky has been a long-time favorite among weather app users, even if it comes with a small price tag of $3.99. It gives you minute-by-minute predictions packaged in a digestible way. Weather information can be very detailed and clunky, but Dark Sky conveys it neatly. You can review all of the details of your forecast and choose the ones that you need. You'll be able to get hourly forecasts of projected conditions and temperature for your entire week, with customizable weather alerts available. This makes planning trips and outdoor activities — down to the hour — easier. It includes advanced local and global radar maps that allow you to see where storms are as well as where they are going. The information all translates well into the Apple Watch app, which pares everything down to the basics. On top of that, Dark Sky supports a family sharing setup, so up to six family members can use the app.
