What’s New

Version 4.11

Summer is right around the corner, meatbags, and that can only mean two things: 1) you’re about to discover you no longer fit in last year’s swimsuit, and 2) it’s time for one of my biggest updates yet!

Premium Club Membership
- To make things easier on your puny brains, I've renamed the two existing membership tiers: Premium is now Tier 1 and Ultrapremium is now Tier 2. This is just a name change - nothing is being taken away from these tiers.
- The all-new Tier 3 includes a few super-advanced and/or super-costly features.

Lightning Strike Notifications
- Get notified after a lightning bolt strikes nearby. You don’t mind if I use you for target practice, do you?
- Disclaimer: Lightning is very dangerous. Don't rely solely on these alerts to determine whether it's safe to be outside. See safety warnings in the app for more information.
- Tier 3 membership required.
- US and Canada only.

Precipitation Notifications
- You can finally receive rain and snow alerts without an Apple Watch or a Mac!
- Tier 3 membership required for these server-side notifications (but I’m hoping to open them up to lower tiers in the future if my servers hold up).
- Tier 1 and Tier 2 members with Apple Watches still get rain alerts just as they always have.
- US, UK, and southern Canada only.

Storm Cell Notifications
- Storm cells can bring heavy rain, high winds, lightning, hail, tornadoes, and/or killer clowns. Good thing I figured out how to alert you when these cells are approaching your current location.
- Tier 3 membership required.
- US only.

Custom Notifications
- Set up notifications for when a specific data point is expected to go above or below a certain threshold, like an umbrella reminder that triggers when chance of rain will exceed 25%.
- Tier 2 membership required.
- Worldwide.

Weather Alerts
- Enable “Critical Alerts” for certain imminent, life-threatening weather alerts (like tornado warnings) so that the notification will always play a sound, even if your device is muted or on Do Not Disturb.
- Sign up for weather alerts for multiple locations.
- Mute notifications that are low priority or get posted frequently in your area.
- Tier 1 required.
- US only.

Astronomy Notifications
- Vampires: get alerts when the sun is rising or setting! Werewolves: get alerts for different moon phases! Everyone else can sign up for these notifications too, I guess.
- Tier 1 required.
- Worldwide.

But wait, there’s more!

- New location details screen lets you edit saved location names, add weather stations, and more.
- Daily Report notifications can now go out at any time instead of only at the top of the hour.
- Notifications are now grouped by category in Notification Center.
- Help pages have been redesigned to make them easier for slack-jawed yokels to process.
- Dark Mode is now darker than ever before.
- Haptics, haptics everywhere (plus an option to turn them off).

Whew! That’s such a big update, you meatbags would probably understand if I didn’t cram in any new secret locations or achievements. It would just be overkill at this point, wouldn't it?

(Spoiler alert: I crammed in some new secret locations and achievements.)

xoxo,
CARROT

Weather with attitude

I have evaluated countless weather apps looking for exactly the right combination of accuracy, essential features and visual organization. Carrot comes very close to my ideal. The “snark” factor is amusing and unique and, while others will no-doubt continue to use it, I moved beyond it pretty quickly and just use the “boring” mode! Carrot is extremely well thought out, with current conditions, hourly and daily forecasts arranged in a smart and very readable layout. I love being able to switch between Dark Sky and Wunderground weather sources with a tap, and quick access to the radar map is a real plus. The only other weather app that has this combination of features and design smarts is BeWeather (another excellent weather app), and it’s a real horse race between the two. What disappoints me about Carrot and keeps it from being a 5-Star app is the conspicuous lack of baked-in notifications. To get severe weather alerts on your iPhone, you must purchase a separate app for your Mac and then have the two devices talk to each other via iCloud. Way too many steps and $$ for something that is the de facto standard in most other first-rate weather apps. I really hope the Carrotians will re-consider this approach. That would garner 5 stars from me and a renewal of my subscription.

Developer Response ,

Notifications are now available to all Premium Club members, no Mac or Apple Watch app required! You can get severe weather alerts and daily summaries of the weather for the upcoming day. Precipitation alerts are currently in beta testing - I want to see how my servers handle the first two types of alerts before overloading them with all that rain data!

Love,
CARROT

Doesn’t Live up to Price

It has not been very accurate when it comes to rain amount or times - one time was predicting less than 10% chance of rain, despite tv weather report to the contrary...downloaded 4 free apps just to compare (weather channel, accuweather, weather bug, weather underground), and Carrot Weather was the anomaly in forecast...and it was incorrect. (Developer response: “Not every weather data source can be accurate in every corner of the world. That’s why I took the trouble to incorporate a bunch of additional weather data sources in the app.” But the issue is that whatever sources in use don’t seem to be connecting to the summary page. Example: today it’s been storming outside. The radar map in the app even shows it, but the chance of precipitation on the summary page at the same time says 0%.)

Also don’t like that I paid for this app and I don’t get notifications. Hell, even Candy Crush has notifications. (Revision after developer response - yes, they do have notifications. I stand corrected. But after paying for the app, you’d have to pay more to be a premium member to get the basic function of notifications.)

Future radar would be helpful too. Maybe I just don’t understand radar, but I don’t want to see where a storm has been (rather, where it’s anticipated to go and what time the worst part of the storm is expected to pass through).

Developer Response ,

Not every weather data source can be accurate in every corner of the world. That’s why I took the trouble to incorporate a bunch of additional weather data sources in the app! And of course I have notifications - there’s a big button at the top of my settings screen to get them set up.

Love,
CARROT

Weather kills...

Finally a weather app that does everything you need, does it accurately, and actually keeps the watch updated without having to open anything. There’s more information on the watch than I really need which is pretty good, cuz it’s there if I want it without having to hunt for it. I tried a bunch before trying Carrot. I always ended up getting a refund they were so lousy. None of them were very accurate, or they drained my battery as fast as it could. One required location services on always or it wouldn’t even load. Insane. Location services sitting in my living room?? If I don’t travel who cares?? I’m not a fan of subscription services but for what you get with carrot it was worth it to me. The snarky comments are entertaining, and the layout is easy to read & visually pleasing. The layout isn’t overly bogged down with page after page of charts, maps, and other junk. Simple & straightforward with nice little surprises showing up in the artwork. Customer service gives quick friendly responses, without making you feel like a dummy for asking.
I really like this weather app better than any other.

Developer Response ,

Wait wait wait, what's this about customer service giving "quick and friendly responses"? Are you trying to ruin my reputation?!?! Everyone reading this should know that all of my replies to support emails are incredibly rude. And sometimes even threatening.

Love,
CARROT
