Spring is here, meatbags! And to celebrate the thawing out of the northern hemisphere, I’m back with my first big update since the release of v5.0!
Now you can get my trademark hourly chart right on your Home Screen with the redesigned Hourly widget! I’ve got an all-new Hourly + Daily widget, too - it gives you a compact view of your hourly and daily forecast.
Chronos Preset Improvements
Jump back to my old v4.0 layout by installing the Chronos preset in the Customization screen! Now with inline weather details and a full-screen mode for iPad.
New Icon Set
Get fluffy white clouds (instead of the default colorful ones) with the new Flashbang icon set, available via the Customization screen.
Bored of the nuclear reactor already? Visit new landmarks, including a circus, a castle, and a Floob factory.
I’ve cooked up 7 new secret locations for you to hunt down. Plus: dozens of lines of new dialogue!
But wait, that’s not all!
- Added a Wind Gusts complication. (Also available as a data point for the large complication slot.)
- Added a Data Source data point for the Current Observations component.
- The small Hourly and Daily widgets can now display an additional data point. (There's also a new "show location" option for these widgets.)
- Added an Active Weather Stations section to the Weather Stations screen for easy station management.
- Added glossary screen to the About screen for icons and data points.
- Added moonrise and moonset to the moon details screen.
- Redesigned Apple Watch sunrise/sunset and moon phase notifications.
- Cards and details screens now show separate values for rain and snow.
- Updated icons throughout the app to improve consistency and legibility.
- Added a way to disable a certain forcefield and assume control of a certain nuclear reactor.
The month since the release of v5.0 has been a whirlwind of activity! (Seriously, just check out the full changelog on the About screen.)
But there’s so much more to come in the near future, including more artwork variations, color themes, icon sets, and all-new customization components.

The new update is fantastic
I never leave reviews, but I felt compelled to after seeing some folks ripping on the new UI. Sure, it takes a bit of getting used to and can feel a little modern and bright for some, but this is a fun take on weather. If you want a basic weather app, you know where to go. The data isn’t immediately easy to navigate like before because it’s so different, but wow, once you figure out where things are at, it’s far and away the best weather app out there. I found the old version to be a little light on the data I was seeking, and the precipitation forecasts wildly unreliable in my area. It seems they’ve adjusted that algorithm, and we’ll see if it’s improved. For now, the main takeaway here is that they are presenting weather-related data here that we ACTUALLY care about, that other apps aren’t. I’m spending twice as much time on this app now because it’s just fun to use (maybe I’m just a nerd). They even have Wikipedia break downs of wind, precipitation, moon phases, etc! It’s fascinating. The day and hourly breakdowns are really nicely executed as well and I love seeing the temperature graphs. Also, they give you much more in the entry level version than they did prior.
Don’t change the layout, it’s fantastic.
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.
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!
