Summer is in full swing, meatbags! I know it’s hot enough to actually consider jumping in a contaminated public pool to cool down, but first: check out this big update I’ve prepared for you.
Achieve peak efficiency by checking the weather in Split Screen and Slide Over multitasking modes! (Disclaimer: your puny human brain may become overwhelmed trying to juggle more than one task at a time.)
iCloud Sync & Restore
My settings, saved locations, weather stations, achievements, and secret locations can all sync via iCloud now. (Settings sync is disabled by default.) Even better, you can restore all 150+ app settings from a backup during app setup or via the new iCloud screen in my settings.
Air Quality Notifications (Tier 2 required)

iPad Design Refresh
To go with my new multitasking features, I also redesigned large portions of the iPad app to make better use of the tablet’s larger screen. More current observation data points, a new day details screen, and popovers galore!
iPad Autorefresh (Tier 3 required)
Leave me running in the foreground on your iPad and I will now automatically update my data periodically - perfect if you have an old tablet laying around that you’d like to turn into an always-on, wall-mounted weather display.
Data Sources (Tier 1 required)
In case you missed it from last month’s update, I’ve added not one, not two, but three amazing new data sources: CimaCell, Foreca, and MeteoGroup. And with this version, all three providers now have full day/night summaries.
Weather Map Improvements (Tier 2 required)
Celebrate hurricane season by tracking storms in style! Just tap a hurricane’s path or an individual storm cell on my maps screen to get more details. Plus, my Temperature, Wind Speed, Wind Direction, Humidity, and Dew Point map layers are now available worldwide.
Notification Improvements (Tier 1 required)
The severe weather alert and hurricane tracker notifications have both been completely redesigned to show lots more useful information in their respective rich notification views. Because if you’re going to die, you might as well know as much as possible about the severe weather that’s going to kill you.
But wait, there’s more!
- Premium Club users can long-press the current, hourly, and daily sections of my interface to quickly open the customization screen for each respective section.
- The legibility of current observation data points has been improved to help those of you with weak human eyes.
- You can save a few steps by adding cities to your saved locations while searching.
- There’s a bunch of new iPad keyboard shortcuts for you to mash with your fat human fingers.
- VoiceOver users can now use the Magic Tap gesture to activate my ocular sensor.
And along with a bevy of bug fixes and performance improvements, I also added 1 new secret location and 2 new achievements to help distract you from wondering whether this month's A/C bill will bankrupt you.
Ratings and Reviews
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!
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).

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.
