I hope your new year is off to a terrible start, meatbags, because otherwise you might not be as grateful to me for this major update as you should be.
Australia-Only Data Source
I can’t protect you from poisonous spiders and rabid koalas, but I can get you more accurate forecasts down under with the new WillyWeather data source, which incorporates data from the Australian government’s Bureau of Meteorology. (Premium Club required on iPhone/iPad, Ultrapremium Club required on Apple Watch.)
Apple Watch Location Search
Look up a city on the go with my new voice search, accessible from the bottom of my watch app’s locations screen.
Custom Complication Combinations (Premium Club only)
Want to keep on top of multiple weather data points, but don’t have enough complication slots to go around? Now you can set up custom combinations of data points in any small complication slot. Wind + air quality? Precipitation chance + rainfall amount? UV index + cloud cover? Go nuts.
Infograph Modular Forecast Options (Premium Club only)
Customize the Infograph Modular watch face’s large slot to show a 10-hour chart, a 5-hour chart, or a text-only summary for the forecast ahead. (Bonus: the 5-hour chart shows precipitation chance as a bar graph in the background!)
Complication Shortcuts (Premium Club only)
Tap on a small complication that displays a single data point (like UV index) to open the app right to a 24-hour view that lets you see how that data point will change over the course of the day. Or tap the new weather maps complication to jump directly to the maps screen. (Weather maps on Apple Watch require Ultrapremium Club.)
But wait, there’s more!
- Tap an hour on the Apple Watch’s hourly details screen to view the full list of weather data for that hour.
- Tap the Apple Watch’s day details screen to quickly jump to the details for the following day without having to back out to the main screen.
- Add a custom data point to the Apple Watch hourly details screen. (From my iPhone app’s settings screen, go to Apple Watch customization, then main app to modify.)
- Add the “Temp + Condition (Alt)” complication to your Infograph or Infograph Modular face to show the current weather condition as an emoji in a spot where an image can’t otherwise be shown.
- Modify the “station radius” option on the personal weather stations screen to customize how close you need to be for me to incorporate that station’s data into your forecast.
And along with a bevy of bug fixes and performance improvements, I also added 1 new secret location and 1 new achievement.
Yeah, you meatbags better be grateful.
Ratings and Reviews
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.

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!
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.

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.
Biased and Inaccurate
At first, I liked the attitude that came along with the weather. The jokes were kind of funny. Then, they became annoying like that smartass you know that thinks they are hilarious but they really are just being jerks. Yeah, this app is a jerk. It’s also extremely liberal. I set my settings to conservative because I don’t want to hear snowflake jerk comments when I’m trying to just look at the weather. Still get liberal comments, just not as harsh. So it’s been confirmed that a “Not my President”’er is the one that comes up with all these “clever” insults.
Now onto what really matters....the weather is NOT accurate. Literally, right now, it says it’s snowing where I’m at and we can expect between 7-10” of snow today. It’s barely drizzling and our local news and every other news and radar shows we are not getting snow today, maybe a little ice but mostly rain. That’s a HUGE difference from what Carrot has to say. Now if later on today we get that much snow, I’ll change this to 4 stars (minus one for the liberal crap).
I’m mad I spent my money on this app, but I took a risk and that’s how Capitalism works. Imagine that. A liberal company benefiting from capitalism. Who woulda thunk it 🙄
