Today Weather App Brings Dark Skies To Rest Of World

Today is a beautiful but limited weather app. Dark Skies is that clever wether app which tells you exactly where and when it’s going to rain, so you can decide whether to grab your umbrella as you dash tot he store. The problem? U.S-only.

Now Today has incorporated Dark Skies alerts to bring this kind of accuracy to the rest of the world.

Adding alerts will cost you $1 via in-app purchase, and adds a new symbol to the weather overview for the currently-selected location. Tap it and you see the weather for now, plus the forecast for the next hour, next three hours, the rest of today and "upcoming" (an overview of any big weather headed in).

It’s pretty neat, although it can’t work out what’s happening for the next hour in Barcelona, and the source data (which comes from the excellent Forecast.io) is in Fahrenheit, even when the rest of the app is set to the ˚C.

I still use the amazing WeatherPro for any and everything when it comes to weather, but for the iPhone, where you want to know less about the next week and more about today, Today is now great.
