Fall is nearly here, meatbags! And while you’ve been busy deciding just how obscene your Halloween costume should be this year, I’ve been hard at work on a major update to your favorite weather app.
Supersized iPad Widgets
My Forecast and Maps widgets take full advantage of the increased screen real estate in the supersized iPad widgets. (Automatic background updates require a Premium Club membership; the Maps widget requires Premium Ultra.)
Want to dress me up in some fancy new hues? Customize my background and accent colors from the Display screen. (Premium Club membership required.)
SF Icon Sets
I’ve packed in not one, not two, but three new system-style weather icon sets. Customize from the Display screen. (Premium Club membership required.)
Rain, lightning, and weather alert notifications will be sent as “Time-Sensitive” by default so that they can bypass Focus filters. And you can now sign up to receive Critical Alerts for warnings that NOAA indicates have a high likelihood of “considerable” or “catastrophic” damage. (Premium Club membership required.)
My new Smart Complication works similarly to the Cards in my main iOS app: you choose the thresholds for the different data points that can appear in the complication, and I’ll show the highest priority ones as conditions change throughout the day. Available for large complication slots only; set up from my iPhone app. (Premium Club membership required.)
Redesigned Details Screens
The Current Observations, Hourly Forecast, and Daily Forecast details screens have all gotten a facelift! They’re easier to read and include more meteorological goodness than ever before.
There’s a brand new achievement for you to unlock, plus nine - that’s right, I said NINE - new secret locations for you to hunt down.
But wait, there’s more!
- Added toast notification when Smart Layouts cause the current layout to change. (Tap the notification banner to disable the notification.)
- Added option at bottom of Layout screen to disable Smart Layouts.
- Added two new Daily Forecast vertical chart styles. Toggle “show temperature gradient” to switch between the two styles.
- Added an optional temperature gradient to the Daily Forecast vertical stack style.
- Added feels like and wet-bulb temperatures to the list of available data points for the Daily Forecast details screen.
- Added new 3-Day Forecast complication for the Infograph Modular face.
- Added option to hide the alerts button in the Apple Watch app.
- Added custom notification for wet-bulb temperature data point.
- Added option in Settings > General for VoiceOver users to enable the speech synthesizer.
Now go start gathering nuts for the winter. I’ve got a cold one planned for you.
Ratings and Reviews
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.
Let’s face it. You’re not here because you want a weather app that’ll tell you the weather and nothing else. No. What you really want is a sadistic computer named after a root vegetable who’ll threaten to strike you dead with lightning like Zeus and explain things about the world you didn’t particularly want to know (“Today is a good day to try to win over your crush by FedExing them one of your body parts,” she may tell you when it’s sunny) all while gathering achievements when you experience a flood or fire warning, hearing the occasional unsolicited political comment (you can turn it off if you want), and playing fun geography puzzles that may or may not be a disguise for the calibrating of a missile targeting system.
But if you take yourself a little too seriously, you can always turn off her personality, (which is just cruel when you think about it) or if your feeling especially masochistic, switch it to Overkill Mode, in which she will cuss and threaten and tease and generally take everything you hold sacred and grind it to dust under her cold, metal boot.
As you can tell, this app is a great deal of fun and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a hearty laugh in their daily routine. And maybe a little bit of threatening.
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.
