Overflowing with Personality
From spooky fog to torrential downpours, CARROT’s dialogue, characters, and scenery change in… “unexpected” ways. You’ll actually be looking forward to a blizzard just to see what CARROT has in store for you!
Accurate and Insanely Detailed
Dark Sky's super accurate weather data gives you access to 24-hour and 7-day forecasts. And there's enough meteorological goodness packed inside to satisfy even the most demanding weather nerd. (Available worldwide.)
If the rain gods are mad at you, CARROT will show you a short-term forecast that tells you right down to the minute when it’s going to start precipitating. (Available only in the US, UK, Ireland, and parts of Canada. Everything else works worldwide.)
Whenever CARROT detects precipitation or a severe weather alert in your area, she'll ping you with a notification. And if you own CARROT Weather for iOS, she can even forward the notification to your mobile device when you're away from your desk! (Note: CARROT Weather for Mac must be running to send notifications to your iOS device.)
Watch in awe as the next big storm bears down on your house with CARROT's trusty radar (for the U.S.) and satellite (for the rest of the world) maps.
Quick-Access Mini Window
CARROT's Mini Window resides in the menu bar and lets you view the short-term, hourly, and daily forecast with a quick click or keypress. You can even detach the Mini Window from the menu bar and keep it in front of your other apps.
Want to know how warm it will be for your big vacation next July? Or if it was ominously cloudy on the day you were born? View the weather for any location up to 70 years in the past or 10 years in the future. DeLorean not required!

What's New in Version 1.3
It's decorative gourd season, meatbag! To celebrate, I have a new macOS-Sierra-optimized update for you.
I ripped out my old widget and built a new one that packs in even more detail than before. Shiny!
Tired of listening to my witty banter? Now you can switch my personality to “boring” mode in Preferences > General, and instead I’ll display a generic description of the current forecast. (Affects the main app, the menu bar app, and the widget.)
Not only does this update pack in a couple new secret locations, you also get a bunch of new dialogue tailored for the fall and winter. I mean, how else are you going to know it’s pumpkin spice latte season if I don’t explicitly tell you?
And of course I included the standard bug fixes and performance improvements, because as usual I am left to clean up after my Maker’s mistakes.
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!
Nearly perfect weather app
First, it’s a fun app. I bought it for the sneakiness. The mordor hidden location made me literally lol. Detail is where you need and mostly intuitive.
Fun weather app, which is great for apps that are mostly in a boring category. My only complaint is that location requires wifi enabled which I don’t need one my desktop since it’s hardwired. This is minor, and would only make me give the app a 4.9 out of 5, if I could use numerics so it still gets a 5 star rating.
Wasted $12. Keeps resetting my location to the North Pole
This is a shame, because I would really like Carrot Weather, if it wasn’t completely broken. Every time I set my location, it only lasts for a few minutes before resetting to the North Pole. I really think the paying customers deserve a fix for this critical error. DO NOT BUY until Carrot Weather updates with a fix for this bug.
Weather and a dose of sarcasm
What’s not to love.
There are a couple of minor (and I do mean minor) hiccups with this. Mostly with one particular secret location that works on the iOS app but not the Mac app. I have written the dev about it. Hopefully it will get fixed soon.
Other that that, it is a small problem, it does what it is suppose to tells me what the weather is, and what gives me a prediction of what it could be. It’s a weather app, I don’t need and more than that. The sarcasm does add fun to it
Update 1: Oh I do love when a plan comes together. Secret Locations work across the board. macOS, iOS and even tvOS. I am loving it on my Apple watch too (oh god what has happened to me…Carrot Weather, my god I do love it so)
