Great design, amazing globe radar

from PC Magazine

There's no doubt that Dark Skies is a beautiful app, fitting in perfectly with the high-design aesthetics of iOS. Everything about the app just works together beautifully, and the 3D-globe radar map is a stunning way to convey weather information.

from ReadWrite
