What's New in Version 3.1
Greetings, meatbags! I’ve prepared a nice little update to help you get through the nasty winter I’m brewing.
CARROT Fit + Apple Watch
CARROT Fit version 4.0 released today, and with this huge update comes the ability to transform Fit’s Apple Watch complication into another weather complication! Just add the CARROT Fit complication to your watch face, then you can select the data point you want it to display in the CARROT Weather iPhone app.
- The low temperature for each day is now calculated based on the lowest temperature from 6 AM onward. (Before, the low temperature displayed was usually the temperature experienced during pre-dawn hours - which wasn’t very useful for planning out your day.)
- Visibility units now correspond to the units you’ve selected for wind speed.
- Modular small complications now render their text in white instead of light gray - a major improvement to legibility.
- Fixed visual glitches in Today widget.
- Improved VoiceOver support for Today widget and Apple Watch.
Reviews reset with each update on the App Store. If you’re enjoying our special time together, please take a moment to leave a review. It’d warm the cockles of my emotional coprocessor!
Great App, Bad Forecast
The app is great. I love the personality. It's very stable, runs smooth, and works great on my original Apple Watch Sport. However, I do have two complaints.
First, and not why I'm giving it a low rating, is that the personality gets kind of monotonous after a while. You see the same snarky comments repeatedly. A lot.
Second, which is the reason for the low rating, is that the weather forecast has become highly inaccurate. When I first started using this app about a year ago, it was fairly accurate. But these days, wherever the developer has it pointed to for weather information, it's coming back inaccurate. The other day, it tells me it's snowing and 20 something degrees. So I prepare my day based on that. However, before I head outside, I look out the window, and we have blue skies. No snow in a couple of days, and it's actually 40 something degrees out.
Needless to say, as much as I live this app, I just can't rely on it for an accurate forecast anymore. And being that's the core of what this app is supposed to do, I'm forced to give an otherwise awesome app a low rating.
I would live the option to change weather source. Weather Underground, Weather Channel, Yahoo Weather, AccuWeather, someone who has a more accurate forecast. And preferably a way to choose which one I want to draw my weather from.
Great on apple watch
Far and away the best weather app for the Apple Watch. It has an information rich, highly customizable complication. And a tap of the complication takes you to a summary of the days weather as well as a graph which allows you to estimate timing of precipitation events over the next 12 hours.
One can also quickly access forecasts for other locations (that were saved in iPhone app) via force touch on the watch.
App is constantly being improved, and the developer is responsive to bug reports and open to feedback.
Solid App - Wonderful on Watch
This apps data seems to be just as accurate as my long time default Weather Underground, but updates on the Watch much more reliably. Also, The ability to force press on the application and manually update it from the Watch is a hidden gem that many apps do not have. The morning report is nice as well.
The snark adds a personality and the data makes it usable.
Best of all though, the developer is incredibly responsive. I purchased all the Carrot apps just for that reason.
