Discussion

Pick of the Day

I’d recommend the iOS app Dark Sky. There are a million weather apps out there and most of them try to out do the other based on design. Dark sky out does the others because it’s accurate. Here’s the deal….it is nearly 100% accurate to the minute as to whether(no pun intended) it’s going to rain or not based on your geo-location….and…it tells you how hard it’s going to rain (drizzle, light, heavy, etc). How is that valuable you ask? Well, whenever I’m at the beach or pool, I know exactly if I should just ride it out or pack it up and head in…..or…if I’m on the golf course…same thing…will it be done in 10 min? Is it a drizzle for the next hour so I can continue my golf game? Dark Sky is the best value I’ve received for an app bar none (I think it’s $3.99 or 1 gallon of gas).
