Anyone use this app? Dark Sky - Hyperlocal weather report

11 posts in this topic

Is it accurate? Was thinking of using it to check for rain/lightning storms. The time lapse map looks very granular - I can zoom into the golf course location. Save me from getting rained out.

YOUR WEATHER, DOWN TO THE MINUTE
Using GPS, Dark Sky is able to create forecasts for your precise location, giving you minute-to-minute predictions for the next hour and detailed forecasts for the next day and week.

There are a bunch of other weather apps that use DarkSky within them. I have a few… one of which is my favorite weather app.

Your response left us guessing.


That's cuz they all have names like "* Weather" or "WeatherApp" or something. It's the top right one that I'm talking about, but I think WeatherLine uses DarkSky too, perhaps.

Good thing you posted the icons, because searching on Weather was going to be real fun. :-D

Why is it your favourite iacas? What puts it above the actual Dark Sky app for you? Currently my go to weather app is AccuWeather but I'm always open to better options.

    • Clearly what happened is that he spent 4-5 hours learning Tiger's balls and it adversely affected him playing with his own balls 
    • 2 weeks ago... I would have said an 'out of nowhere' slice off the tee.  I'd be hitting shots into the fairway (or just off the fairway), and suddenly, I'd hit a 50 yard slice that ends up in somebody's cereal bowl in a kitchen.  

      Currently... a wild hook from the tee.  It started recently and I can't figure it out... at all.  Luckily it hasn't seemed to hurt me too badly (yet), but... it makes it tough because my typical shot shape (for years) has been a fade, so... I prefer to aim at the left side of the fairway.  Now, with this hook, I feel like I can't aim at the left side because it could put me in trouble... so I aim up the right and, when I hit a straight shot, it's a big push.  

      ... shrug ...

    • Definitely... DEFINITELY don't be the creepy 'cart girl is hot' guy.  It gets awkward in a hurry.  In 2004, I was playing with a club that played all around the area I was living in.  I was 25 at the time and, by far, one of the younger guys in the club.  I often got paired with the guys that were mid 40's and would make completely inappropriate comments about the cart girls.  Seeing as how many of the girls were in my age range, it was always very awkward to hear what they were saying and, truthfully, I never respected anybody who made comments like that.  

      Beyond that... I enjoy playing with people who have personalities.  I enjoy conversation beyond the typical pleasantries.  If I'm going to be on the course with you for 4+ hours... I'd expect to know something about you by the end of the round and vice-versa.  

      If you're willing to trade barbs back and forth (golf related or otherwise) and laugh about them... you're my kinda guy and I can see us playing together more in the future.  Being a big sports fan... I love playing with people who can talk trash AND take it without getting hurt feelings.  There's nothing worse than getting paired with someone who makes a comment about my Giants ball marker or my Mets hat, starts talking trash... and then says they're a Lions fan or something, but gets bent out of shape when I talk trash back.

    • Thanks you.  So many people on this site misread, or completely miss the true point of a response.  Shooting29 is another perfect example. I've been in a couple of 5-hour rounds the past few seasons.  I don't go to those courses anymore.  My normal rounds on weekends with my guys all happen at 4 hours or a bit shorter. My point was exactly as you read.  No sense in trying to get ahead of the group in front only to wait on the next group and have the group of you passed waiting on you.  Sometimes there is simply no way to escape slow play other than exiting the course. dave
    • Well that 16-19-1 record isn't going to explain itself away, now is it?
