Starbucks Pick of the Week: Dark Sky

Each week Apple & Starbucks team up to offer free content to customers.  This week is Dark Sky by Jackadam.  Dark Sky provides up to the minute weather conditions with a nice radar.   Check out the video below for a quick overview.


From the App Store: 

Dark Sky can tell you at a glance exactly when it will rain (or snow) up to an hour in advance, so you’re free to walk the dog or play another set of tennis and know you’ll stay dry. You can also explore the most beautiful weather animation you’ve ever seen, both forward in time or back.

Using GPS, Dark Sky is able to create forecasts for your precise location. And because Dark Sky focuses on the next hour, we are able to give you minute-to-minute predictions.

The same technology that powers Dark Sky’s predictions also allows us to make the world’s first perfectly smooth radar animation. Other apps show you a chunky slideshow that makes it nearly impossible to tell how storms are moving. But Dark Sky’s beautiful radar animation lets you see the actual path of the storm: how it moved in the past, and where it’s going in the future.

Dark Sky can send you an alert before it starts raining at your exact location. Even if you haven't opened the app in days, Dark Sky will know when you're in the path of a storm.

NOTE: Dark Sky currently supports the United States, including Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico and the UK, Ireland, and surrounding areas.

Dark Sky is is a universal app and normally available for $3.99 in the App Store but is available as a free digital download in the Strabucks App.
