Ratings and Reviews
Didn’t Know What I Was Missing
All this time, I had been seeing Carrot Weather at a distance, seeing what it can do, but I wasn’t impressed at first. But then I finally took the plunge and bought it on the iOS and Mac platforms. Well worth the money!!! This app is WAY better than Forecast (especially on the Apple Watch) or even the native Dark Sky app! But, this app has some pretty good humor, and it is definitely a trip to poke the daylights out of the Ocular Sensor every now and then (LOL). The Snarks are awesome, and definitely will get you laughing at least every once in a while.
That’s all well and good, but it really does get down to business when it comes to knowing what weather is coming your way, giving detailed analysis of whatever weather conditions are present at any location you desire. And, the Mac app is definitely awesome as well, employing keyboard shortcuts throughout the app. For those of us on the Mac, we know that is something that should be required for every app out here: Keyboard Shortcuts!!
Now, if Carrot Weather can improve their Radar app to be on the same level as MyRadar, we will be absolutely golden. And, because of the snarks, I’ll have to make sure now that I don’t inadvertently call someone a meatbag (LOL)….
Good App, Needs Full Feature Set
CARROT Weather is a rather humorous, yet highly useful, weather application. It allows for weather prediction up to 10 years in advance, and can provide minute-by-minute forecasts when needed. It also allows you to check the weather on any day in the last 70-or-so years, find secret locations, and check the radar. These things are good; they do their job quite well. However, this app is sorely lacking in features that the iOS version has which could genuinely make this an even better weather app. When you compare the two side-by-side, there's really no contest; the iOS one has better features for CARROT (such as different personality modes), more secret locations, and the ability to search for them, more detailed forecasts, with hourly ones for the next week, and more. While AR cannot really come to the Mac for obvious reasons, the other features are only missing due to a lack of developer interest. Some of these things genuinely puzzle me. Why, for example, does CARROT not have the full voice set here too? That really shouldn't be hard to port over; once they've done it once, features like that don't need to be completely redone, so porting should be trivial. It's the lack of features, especially for the high price tag, that I'm not a huge fan of. The app's good, but could definitely benefit from even just a little bit more maintenance and updating.
Developer Response ,
The complete redesign of my Mac app is now here, meatbag! All you have to do is update to macOS Catalina and you'll get access to all the features that have been added to my iOS counterpart over the past two years.
The Strangest Weather App On The Market
This has one of the strangest humor for any app to be honest and I love it. There are humor settings that you can change if it's too dark for your tastes. Trust me when I say it can get dark and mouthy.
It has one of the most accurate forecasts of any weather app. Some features are going to be locked behind a monthly or yearly paywall. I have the Tier 3 subscription that renews yearly and I think it's worth it for the features you do get. The iOS apps are also worth getting especially if you own an Apple Watch.
I have only two complaints. One being the menubar icon only shows if the app is open. You close it down and the menubar icon goes with it. There was a app called Meteorologist where the menubar icon could be working without the app being completely open. The second one being where are the widgets that the iOS versions now have? Granted, they can only be used in the Notification Center but it would still be a useful thing to have.
Overall, this is the king of the weather apps and I recommend it.
