Dark Sky 5.0 gets a new look and advanced alert options

Dark Sky, a weather app specializing in hyper-local forecasts, has hit version 5.0, refreshing the layout, adding advanced alert options, and more. The app also packs advanced functionality for iPhone 6 owners, letting them opt in to sending pressure sensor data for better short-term forecasts.

The new layout features a vertical timeline of the next 24 hours, still showing you when it will rain. However, alongside this you'll now be able to view the chance for precipitation, temperature, wind, humidity, and the UV Index for the day as well.

Notifications have also been revisited. While you can still get standard alerts for when it's about to rain or snow, Dark Sky now lets you customize alerts for the next 24 hours for things like temperature, precipitation, and snow accumulation.

Other improvements in this update include a new weather reporter, and, finally, landscape mode on the iPad. You can grab Dark Sky 5.0 right now from the App Store.
