What's New in Version 5.2
Greetings, meatbags! I just launched CARROT Weather, an eerily accurate weather app that delivers hilariously twisted forecasts. There are secret locations to unlock. And also evil penguins. It's available now!
And because I'm feeling generous, you're also getting a brand new story chapter and challenge starring your lovable furry kitten.
Plus! My mood timer now resets when you add a new task as well as when you complete one.
And finally! I'm now completely accessible for VoiceOver users.
Sarcastic Motivation for getting stuff done
For starters this is NOT a robust task management solution intended for serious task tracking in a business environment. For that we have OmniFocus, Things, 2Do and a plethora of other cross platform Task Management solutions. Carrot excels at tracking and "motivating" you to complete those one-off menial tasks that folks like me seem to always forget about. I love Carrot's sarcasm. I find that it motivates me to both enter and complete those one off tasks (like Take out Garbage) if only to see how it affects Carrot's mood. Gamification of task management has been done before but Carrot's snarky approach sets it apart from other apps. I find myself looking forward to leveling up just to see what sarcastic sassy comment or reward Carrot has in store for me. If you find humor or motivation in sarcasm then this app is worth the download.
The Best in every way
CARROT is SO MUCH FUN. I have without a doubt been at least 3 or 4 times more productive. Things don't just sit around on my to do list anymore - I actually do them! Not only that, but I'm IN LOVE with CARROT's personality. She's so sassy and it's so much fun waiting to here what she might say next (one if my favorites is "By Jove"). CARROT truly does make completing tasks fun, working toward the next level, trying not to make her upset, and anticipating your next surprise. And it's easy to cruise through levels, unlike some apps where it takes weeks to get through one level. The design is clean and awesome. Beautifully simple and easy to navigate. DEFINITELY worth what it cost. (And I'm glad to see that it has a 5 star rating, because that's exactly what it deserves!)
While this app is kind of funny and simple enough, there are things I really dislike about it. Like you can't edit or delete tasks or even see your completed items until you get to a certain level? That's lame. I like to see everything I've crossed off or checked off all on one list as it would be if handwritten on an old-fashioned piece of paper. I actually prefer the built-in notes app on my iPhone to this Carrot app for my to-do list, but I would still like to find something with that old-school feel that is a little more high-tech. I also wish it provided the ability to organize tasks by date so you can see what's due today or what might be coming up in a day or so. Overall, I think the concept of a kind of sarcastic and moody punisher kitty is great and motivating for getting tasks done, however, it is poorly executed and a waste of $3. Not the right app for me.
