Dark Sky Alternative Weathergraph Shines on the Apple Watch

January 13, 2023

If you’re still looking for an alternative to Dark Sky after the popular weather app stopped functioning at the end of 2022, Weathergraph is another great option—especially if you have an Apple Watch.

To help create a custom watchface, there is a number of beautiful complication available to add. Easily my favorite is the large central chart for the Modular watchface that showcases temperature, wind speed/direction, and much more in an easy-to-read format. 

On the Apple Watch, you can also view a real-time rain and snow forecast. The Nowcast is updated every 15 minutes. It will soon be added to the iPhone and iPad version. 

And when you’re ready to go off-grid, the app is offline capable. It will cache the last acquired forecast for up to 24 hours, allowing you to go outside a Wi-Fi or cellular network and still see the most recent data on both your iPhone or Apple Watch.

Dark Sky fans will also enjoy a recent update to the iPhone and iPad version. Weathergraph has added a vertical layout similar to the dearly defeated app. It shows the weather conditions in two-hour intervals for up to three hours ahead. Temperature labels on the right side form a chart.

With the layout, you can also see the sunny hours highlighted. Tap the row in the daily forecast to see a detailed hour-by-hour forecast for that date. 

You can also view the weather forecast without even needing to open up the app on your iPhone or iPad. There is a number of both customizable home screen and lock screen widgets. 

Weathergraph is for the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. It’s a free download on the App Store. 

There is also an optional Weathergraoh Pro subscription. That’s $19.99 per year or $59.99 for a lifetime use.

Subscribers can unlock additional weather sources like Apple Weather and Foreca, view the Nowcast, and unlock all of the app’s options and styles.
