Claiming over 35,000 users, weather app Dark Sky has come a long way since its Kickstarter success, and today received its first major update that adds push notifications and a national weather map. Dark Sky's 2.0 update includes various bug fixes and performance tweaks, as well as minor changes like VoiceOver support and the ability to change your forecast location.

The most significant change, however, is Dark Sky's new location-specific weather notifications, which notify users when it is likely to rain nearby within 15 minutes. Despite being available in the public release, developers caution that this optional feature is still experimental. The 2.0 update also adds a full weather map of the continental US that displays weather activity over the past 12 hours. Developers plan to work on international support for the app next, and will add one country at a time based on user demand. Existing owners can download the update for free now, and prospective customers can grab Dark Sky from the iTunes App Store for $3.99.
