      While I have been enjoying using the app, it isn't always accurate. And... that I can buy it so much cheaper from the app store than I pledged is a real bummer.

    14. Missing_small

      Creator Jeremy Herrman on April 27, 2012

      Disappointed for a couple of reasons. Although the app seems to work okay on my iPhone, it's frustrating that lack of iPad 1 support wasn't communicated earlier.

      The bigger problem to me is that the app is now $3.99 vs the $15 backers paid. Usually backers get a discount because they're helping turn an idea into reality. I feel the right thing for Adam and Jack to do is give backers a couple of more copies of Dark Sky to give away to family and friends. This would help spread the word as well as lessen the sting of the severe price drop and lack of support for the original iPad.

      We had just a bit of "weather" the other day & I could see the app working -- trying hard to find that *tiny* bit of drizzle! I'm looking forward to summer when we often have thunderstorms to give it a good workout -- that's when it'll be *really* useful to me.

      Creator John Pound on April 24, 2012

      Ditto to the comments of Kjell and Eddie Sutton: a major disappointment that it won't work on the iPad 1. I'd still have supported it, for the idea and the apparent elegance of the execution -- but it would have been nice if you'd been more complete and thoughtful in describing its requirements.

      Dark sky looks great.

      I say looks because I have an iPad 1 and iPhone 3GS, so I can't use it. Here's to the next version running on old hardware. Even if half-assedly.

      Dark Sky saved me some trouble this weekend. I was out at the park with my kids and we started hearing thunder. I quickly brought out Dark Sky as other parents were hustling their kids back to their cars. Dark Sky estimated we had half an hour before the rain hit. I told my kids we'd leave in 15 minutes. We had the playground to ourselves for a good ten minutes before I said it was time to go. We got to the car and a soaking rain hit five minutes later. You nailed that one Dark Sky!!

      Since the update I downloaded a few days ago my iPhone goes to the location selection screen when I tap the radar button. Haven't tested this on the iPad.

      Creator Avery Brooks on April 23, 2012

      I have to say I'm pretty disappointed that the the first generation iPad isn't supported. I understand that your application processes a lot of data client side, but couldn't you just allow it to run, even sluggishly, on that device?

      I finally received a valid redeemable download code for DarkSky for the US iTunes store on Saturday April 21. The distribution of the reward copies of DarkSky obviously could have gone more smoothly than it evidently did. Perhaps the developers were spread a bit too thinly to give the distribution the fuller attention it called for. If you have still not yet received yours, then I suggest clicking on the "send message " link at the top of this page. Of course, I may well have been the very last recipient.

      Creator Eddie Sutton on April 17, 2012

      While I super-duper dig the app on the iPhone I am very disappointed it doesn't work on the original iPad. I do love the app - don't get me wrong - but I wish the requirement of the new iOS models was included in the original Kickstarter description. Or even during development when the requirement was realized. Waiting 'til the app is released for us to discover the limitation is, well, kinda rude.

      To answer another common question: The app is a Universal app, so it should work on your iPhone and iPad and you don't have to pay for it again. Just download it on both devices and you should be good to go!

      As always, let me know if you have any problems! adam@darkskyapp.com

    37. Logo.small

      Creator Adam Grossman & Jack Turner on April 17, 2012

      Folks who haven't gotten the link to download the app: A couple things:

      1) The email should have come from the iTunes Store, not our own email. A few other people had missed it because they were expecting an email from us.

      2) Did you check your spam folder and archives?

      If you still can't find it, send me an email: adam@darkskyapp.com

      Sorry about the problem!

      Creator Adam Grossman & Jack Turner on April 17, 2012

      Craig: The front-facing camera thing is dumb, right? Here's the deal: The app is doing a lot of number-crunching on the device itself -- the future radar is all calculated on the fly. Because of that, it only works on newer iPhones (the iPhone 4 and 4S) and newer iPads (the iPad 2 and 3).

      But there's no way to restrict the app to only those devices from within the App Store (and if we didn't, lots of people would buy the app not knowing it won't work). All you can do is restrict by specific features like gyroscope or cellular service or front-facing camera. As it turns out, the front facing camera is the only thing that the devices mentioned above have in common.

    46. Headshot.250x250.small

      Creator Craig Jolicoeur on April 17, 2012

      Is there a reason the app requires a camera for the iPad? Not sure why a weather app would need a front-facing camera for usage which blocks the original iPad from using it?

      Creator Oliver Hofmann on April 17, 2012

      Thanks. Actually I meant a button that would reset the time-scroll on the Radar map to the current time after I've been exploring ancient history. Roughly the equivalent of pressing "Back", then pressing "Radar" again.
