Manic Bobo - Weather kills...
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.
moose_squirrel - 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.
missniks - 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).
1947 - Needs Better Radar
Just starting to get acquainted with the app, but it’s going well so far. It’s highly configurable, which I enjoy and makes a lot of sense because everyone is looking to get something a little different out of a weather app. Trying to please everyone is never a recipe for a great product, but Carrot includes a lot of options and features with a UI that focuses on what’s important. So kudos for that.
One of the main things that drew me to this app was the developer’s promise not to sell user data. I live in Oklahoma, so I mainly rely on weather apps from local news stations, since weather is regularly a matter of life and death here and local sources are the most reliable and knowledgeable here. But I’d be shocked if those stations are not tracking users and selling data. I can’t switch entirely to Carrot yet though because the radar resolution in Carrot is terrible. Half the time I can’t even recognize a hook echo that’s clearly visible on News 9’s radar map. It would also be nice if there were more frames in the radar animation, but that’s not a huge deal.
So, to the developer, I don’t know if you can get a higher resolution radar source, but that’s going to be a requirement from me before I’ll subscribe, because without it I can’t completely give up other apps.
RobWCam - Didn’t want to like Carrot-but how could I not?
I like to experience weather matter-of-factly. I find this a crucial component of checking weather when I’m scouting out best times in the year to vacation somewhere. My husband suggested I use Carrot to add some “flair” to my weather searches....I found this confusing mostly because...I don’t like change and was used to the layout on another “reliable” weather app that I won’t use by name......(the app rhymes with “Feather Flannel”), and lastly when my husband is right about something, a circuit shorts somewhere deep inside my body which gives me the overwhelming need to revolt. And besides, what could Carrot do to add “flair” to my weather check-in while in Hawaii for sunny days to stay and lay by the pool, or what day I should schedule my trip to the local outdoor mall? The first time Carrot Told me she hoped I was impaled by flying debris on a windy day at home though, I fell in love.......AND she’s ALWAYS ACCURATE....needless to say, I deleted the “Feather Flannel” app and spend my time with Carrot. Daily. ♥️♥️♥️
Markeleze - Not worth your time or money
$30 every YEAR?! It’s a fun app and I like the widgets but I already paid $5 for the app and now you want me to pay ANOTHER $30 annually to unlock all the features? No thank you.
I bought this app years ago, it was funny but it didn’t offer any better weather data than the other free apps I had and $5 for data that other apps gave free felt like a small rip off. I’d give it 4 stars back then, it was good but the free options were better. When the widgets came out, I was super excited to see CARROT really go all in. I was finally excited to see a feature both unique AND useful from CARROT. But now it feels like they’re milking me for every last cent and their “extra” features should be free to begin with. Stuff like background refresh and weather widgets are free on other apps. I like the design of CARROT but it’s not worth a $5 app AND a $30 subscription.
I understand that people worked hard on this app, but make the app itself free and offer a $3 annual subscription fee for background refresh and unlocked widgets. I don’t mind ads or subscription-only features, but I cannot stand paying for an app only to realize I ALSO need to pay for a subscription before I can use the app like other weather apps.
Bennett Comfort - A weather app like no other
Forget and set aside your previous expectations of what a quality weather app may be. Carrot Weather app is unique in itself, and for good reason! Yes, this application provides accurate forecasting as well as live weather updates upon request. But this app is so, so much more. This application and it’s humorous User-Interface reset the paradigm of weather-notification apps - bringing with it a level of immersion never seen before.
Carrot weather app is accurate, but moreso ever notification pushed to you will at least have you smirking in its comedy. I am constantly checking this weather app, not because I wish to know what the current state of weather is like (honestly I’ve never done this before), but just to see what tongue-in-cheek joke awaits me today. If you want a weather app, this app is for you. And if you just want an app to make you smile from time to time (while also giving you accurate weather data live) then this app is also for you.
t0ny w - So Much Snark
This is my favorite weather app by far. I love the snarky comments when I check the weather each morning. The weather sources this app uses are accurate as well. At first I thought the app was a little expensive for just telling the weather. After I used it I could definitely see why it was worth the asking price and have recommended it to all my friends.
I was super bummed when I ran into an issue with CARROT’s snarky personality not showing up in a recent phone upgrade. That’s the best part of the app! I never do this but I figured I’d send a bug report and email to help fix my problem. The developer was quick to respond and through multiple emails, was able to fix the issue.
I highly recommend this weather app not only for the snarky comments and accuracy, but for the outstanding support from the developer!
Shaun088 - Surprised at what you get for $4.99
This app is executed very well. It’s extremely well done; the graphics are great, and the app works perfectly.
Unfortunately, I paid $4.99 for the app and then found that most of the features I wanted require a subscription. To be fair, the App Store description does tell you what things require an in-app purchase - so it is partially my fault for not reading through the App Store details before purchase. With that said, I was still disappointed to find that most of the features I wanted required a paid subscription (referred to as a “tier”). For example, the Carrot widgets that are included with the app purchase give you no more capability than Apple’s built in weather widget. If you want a widget with a weekly outlook, it requires a tier 1 subscription. I was also surprised that weather notifications required a tier subscription.
To be clear, Carrot is not hiding what is included with the app and what requires a subscription, but you need to read through the App Store description in DETAIL, or you may be surprised. For a $4.99 app, I expected much more.
Ryan Broom - Awesome App
The design is beautiful, the app on iPhone X in particular really shines. I love the way the graph visualizes temp and precipitation. The snarky robot concept is funny and the ability to fine tune it’s personality and politics is ingenious. The ability to look backwards in time at weather is also something I’ve always wanted from a weather app. There are a lot of other little touches that you should discover yourself.
A couple of things that could be better are the tiny font on the widget (which I use daily to quickly check weather at a glance). It’s really, really tiny. Almost unreadable. Precipitation notifications are pretty clunky too and have to be pushed from the mac app ($). There is also a subscription for access to a few extras including watch complication customization, which is a little annoying after paying 5 bucks.
Overall, spectacular app for something as simple as weather. Lots of great features, personality, amazing design, and updates.
Crooked Muse - Pretty nice, but...
After looking for a powerful, accurate, and stylish weather app for years, I thought my search had finally come to an end when I found Carrot. While it is certainly all of those things, with an added layer of snarky charm to boot, it’s also another thing: expensive.
$5 is a rather high price to ask for a weather app, but I figured it would be more than worth it for all the countless hours of use I’d receive in return, what I didn’t expect is that this weather app asks requires a monthly/yearly fee to access most of its features. I’ve seen apps that cost money to buy, and I’ve seen apps that have subscription fees, but it’s rare to see one that asks for both, let alone a weather app.
One of the main reasons I purchased Carrot was to use the widget, but that, along with other important features like notifications, are locked behind the second paywall. There are plenty of other weather apps that require no such payment, and I will be using one of them instead.
OzarkButterfly - Love app but too expensive to buy any frills!
Have only had the Carrot app and been using it for 3 days. So far I like it, it’s easy to navigate and the greetings are freaking hilarious, however the basic app purchase only gives you “the bare basics”. To even receive any weather WARNINGS for your area - sorry folks yada-yada-yada, it’s going to cost your pocketbooks upwards of up to $100* plus tax, and a yearly membership. *based on the $9.99 per month Tier 3 account. Sure, there’s a mid-range Tier 2 model with a few bells and a few whistles, but I just refuse to believe the App Developer’s responses you other people’s reviews that “it’s expensive for server upkeep”. I’ve purchased several apps, over the last 10 years and once I purchased those apps, then all the app access is available for use, not cherry-picking the fun bits and charging monthly/yearly subscription fees for. I’ll gladly keep using Carrot, but I’ll keep my Weather Channel app for my warning alerts.
AshleyDelavane - From 5 stars to 3, as a premium subscriber.
And as of May 13th 2018 now one star as still keeps randomly freezing on series 3 Watch. No matter how many times I reset, reinstall reboot watch and phone. Feedback I get from customer support is that is strange. Love this app and am also an ultra premium subscriber. Works great on phone but not watch. 1 star rating because of Customer support response and not getting what I paid for. Hopefully the developers will listen now.
Because on iPhone 7 Plus widget... it often crashes with no update--- just blank space.
Since the widget is there for the sole reason to be instant- this is ridiculous. Many people have complained yet no fix. The second star docked is due to inaccuracy of weather occasionally. By about 7-8 degrees Fahrenheit quite often. It then corrects itself shortly after but not until I have found the accurate temp by going outside and also checking with Weathermate. No app can beat Carrot's aesthetics in my opinion. Nor the ease of use with the great detail available. Not to mention the snark. But as a premium subscriber I deserve better.
Realsville - Garbage
Got tired of the weather underground app complication not updating, and main screen inaccuracy on Apple Watch 4. So I got this app. This app is worse. Complications don’t update, main screen weather is inaccurate. It doesn’t even match the main app on the phone. However, if you have the watch main app open and then open the phone app, it will sync with the watch and they then will show the same, which is still inaccurate weather. Set up my weather station on PWS weather for this app to pick up. Weather is still inaccurate and doesn’t match my station’s weather by a long shot. If you want your weather app to respond to you with stupid comments then I guess this app is for you. If you want accurate weather and Apple Watch updates, move on.
Update: Hmmm, Yes I have Tier 2 Premium supscription. I have uninstalled and installed phone and watch app several times, checked all settings and sync dozens of times. Reviews here and online show many with same/similar problem. I will not be sending "log" information to you. Should not be this convoluted.
Ragamorph - Changing my review
After the last update (I’ve had the app for 2 years now), I’m unable to use it on my phone or watch. All I get is the continuous loading app.
I emailed the developer and was told it the problem was known and was fixed in a beta and I would get emailed a link to download the working beta. Never received that and my app has been stuck for a month without being able to fully use it or even make use of the newest stuff in the last update.
At least I still get temp data points showing on my Apple Watch complication. The widget shows all “0” and the app won’t load on phone or watch. It’s been a month, if there’s a known issue, push out an update to fix it.
Oh yeah, I’m also an “Ultra Premium Club” member and have lost a month’s functionality of something I paid for. I will be emailing the developers about getting some sort of compensation for that. I’ll update here about responsiveness and their willingness to support people that pay for extra services and don’t receive them.
Lady Elia - Too Funny!!
I used to love this app! Read further down for update. Not only do you get accurate weather information but it swears at you at the same time. Now if they would just keep making Missions! Or you could hire me to do this really fun part of the app! I need more Missions ##%*^€£¥. Thanks
Update: Okay back again with additional review......I love the nasty humor but I don’t like the political satire! I hear the SH**T all day long on tv and I really don’t want to hear a slanted view of anything political! There’s lots to choose from to have a nasty humorous comment which I love. The way it is now I’m considering deleting the app. It’s so sad as there’s so much that could be humorous other then taking a political side, that you think is funny. I spent a significant amount of money for this app, maybe you’ll consider trying to make everyone happy. More missions please!
The Saucy Wench - Cards against humanity & a weather app walk into a bar...
If the Carrot weather app’s ocular sensor was single, I’d say I found my perfect match. Where i live, tornado watches , and warnings are very common through out the year. They close the entire city at the threat of snow. Due to the history of deadly tornados here, the weather stations here tend to go way over board if it even mist rain. Carrot not only gives me an accurate, up to date weather forecast with the beautiful DarkSky powering its ocular sensor- including any warnings for my location- it does so in the best possible way. It calls me a meat bag ,it cuts out my mortal enemies hearts and mails it to me in the post. It gives me funny animation and creative insults that have yet to fail at making me stop for a second and laugh daily. Carrot is my dream weather app. It's like the weather played cards against humanity and won.
Apollolee - Weather...with a chance of quirky!
I really do like the simplicity of this app, but also the fun little things that are said about the weather. It's not extremely different from the native weather app, but it's got a little hint of originality that makes seeing the weather for the day, fun! The extra places that you get the "weather" for is also nice, it makes it sort of game like so you not only want to see the weather, you want to see the weather on the moon and other pop culture "planets". Yes, the fact that you have to pay for something that comes native on the phone is sort of a bummer, but you'll soon forget that when you're using this eccentric weather app! One negative though, I downloaded it onto my iPad mini and it doesn't have any difference, yet in the description it says that there are differences between the iPad/iPhone version...? Still wonder what they are.
Kelington - Crashes after update.
Final update: Developer has been responding promptly and we’ve managed to get all of my data restored. Back to happy!
The update this morning killed my weather. Please fix.
Update: the follow-up patch did the trick but I lost my Streaker progress even though I checked in with my Carrot app on my backup phone. Sadly this bothers me enough to drop a star.
On the bright side, keep up the great work. I love the achievements and secret locations (I was caught up before this update).
Latest update: Dev was responsive to begin with and sent me a Test Flight invitation so I’d be able to restore my streak with a command line entry. This somewhat worked as (for whatever reason I can’t imagine) there’s a limit of 300 days when you restore a streak. I was told this would be removed in the next build released, which it wasn’t and still hasn’t been. Dev is no longer responding to emails.
Having resigned to the data loss, I deleted the test flight version and went back to the production release. Even though I restored from a backup on my backup iPhone, I lost MORE data (six weather conditions and 40% of the 30 different locations, whatever that maths out to). Guess I’ll just have to cross my fingers and hope no future updates break my streak again.
jasonlitka - Cute, but pronunciation stinks, kind of a gimmick
Ok, so first things first, if you already have Dark Sky you can skip Carrot. Yeah, you get a bit more detail per hour in Carrot, but you seem to lose out on the geographic context. Dark Sky gives you messages like “Nearest precip is 27 miles to the West” so that you don’t have to look at the map. I haven’t seen that yet from Carrot, maybe it’s there, don’t know.
Maybe the forecasts get better with the Premium upgrade (and FYI, if you do, it costs you even more to use it on your watch) so that you can use Weather Underground as a source, but I don’t know, I was about to give the upgrade a try when I found out that Carrot can’t has lousy pronunciation.
Every time you open Carrot it gives you a snarky phrase. They’re canned, that’s ok because there seem to be a ton of them, but it’s really disappointing to hear that no one listened to them all before publishing the app. About 5% of the phrases I’ve heard have some sort of text-to-speech error in them. Part of the gimmick here is people around you hearing what Carrot says, and when you get one with an error, it’s just embarrassing.
I’m going to keep Carrot around for a while but I’m not ready to spring for the subscription. I just don’t see the benefit as of now. Maybe if you gave a 3 day trial of the premium features or something like that. If they really are better, that could sell a lot of people.
CharlesAr1962 - Great developer
UPDATE: With new functionality and real time weather alerts, this hands down the absolute best weather app for iPhone. Is it worth the price? If you live in an area where severe T-Storms and tornadoes strike suddenly, the fully customizable real time weather alerts alone are well worth the cost of this service, those can literally be a life saver!
The new BETA version also allows you to set up real-time weather alerts (rain, snow, T-Storm, hurricane, etc) on multiple cities beyond your current location. This has open for me the option of monitoring dangerous weather conditions for the city where my parents and my children live so I can keep them safe!
If you are a weather geek, or simply want/need to be informed of changing weather conditions in real-time, this app is certainly the one for you!
Tom sochacki - What you need
Carrot weather does one thing and it does this one thing exceptionally well. It takes large amounts of data and puts it into and easy to read interface that is amusing, insightful, and thorough. The Carrot bot is hilarious, and the whole interface is easy to use. It offers much more data than the stock weather app for iPhones, and is a lot simpler than just about every single other weather app. I’ve loved this app and I’m so happy that I’ve finally found the “perfect weather app” that pairs well with my iPhone and Apple Watch. I know a lot of people will be torn that you have to pay extra for some features but for anyone that needs to know the weather for their job or just likes to be up to date on the weather, this is the app to get, and it is well worth the price.
nammai25 - Carrot is no ordinary weather app - it is a killer one!!
While Carrot is known to be just another normal weather app, this one throws in snarky, funny commentary about the weather, politics, and everywhere in between. The app even speaks to you in a serious or friendly voice, which I found interesting. However, even jokes and funny commentary can’t liven up the other points of the app, which include the subscriptions and other options, such as notifications and achievements. But still, checking the weather and hearing a good, quirky joke from Carrot herself sounds like fun. I find this app to be a quite useful resource, and I will continue to use it forever (until I switch to another weather app)! One more thing: ignore Carrot’s expletive-laden comments if you set her friendliness option very high. It might be funny, but she can mean serious stuff (I am not even kidding!)...
Myrkur007 - Great app
I absolutely love this app, it’s my go to app and is slowly replacing Dark Sky as my only weather app on my iPhone besides the built in stock app. Only hope the radar is and soon will be more detailed and smoother along with the maps. I highly recommend CARROT WEATHER, it’s totally worth the price and subscription as I’m an Ultra-Premium subscriber. Great job on the last update. Top notch app and very clever wit. I love it, keep up the great work!
Update...I really love this app but it really needs precipitation notifications and if it doesn’t get an update with it very soon I’m deleting this app and sticking with Dark Sky as my go to app even though I plunked down $9.99 for the ultra premium service. After all we’re pay top notch prices for this app for features that are already on free apps. AT LEAST GIVE US PRECIPITATION NOTIFICATIONS CARROT⁵!!!
hmstrcr6 - New Fave App, but....
***UPDATE: I got it figured out! I I hit “Synchronize” twice and when it didn’t update after 20-30 mins, I rebooted both the watch and the phone and put the watch on the charger overnight; now it’s working as it should!
I just recently discovered CARROT⁵ after a brief stint with Dark Sky, and I love it! I have the personality on Overkill and I find myself checking my watch more and more, just to see what over-the-top, foul thing it’s saying now! Haha! For the most part, the weather/forecast has been pretty accurate. The one issue I’ve noticed is with Apple Watch complication for the “large slot.” I have it set to Snarky, but it just says “Rain for Hour...” even though it’s not raining and hasn’t been raining. The temp is correct, but the snark/condition is wrong and does not change.
bahoolaboy - I wanted to like this app
I’ve had this app for over two years. One of the main reasons I had for getting this app over others was the excellent Apple Watch complication. However, the lack of accuracy in weather forecasting makes the speed, stability, and nice aesthetics rather pointless considering weather forecasting is the main purpose of this application. I live in the Pacific Northwest, and this app has failed way too many times to successfully forecast rain and other weather events. I know you can change the weather data sources, but that costs even more money on top of all of the additional money it costs to get the features I want (after I already paid for the app itself). Perhaps if the base cost of simply buying the app wasn’t so steep this review would have been a little different. But for now I cannot justify the cost of this app any longer after its record of unreliability.
schneidly - Top Weather App & Great Developers
I’ve tried a ton of apps for my fleet of Apple devices. This developer is easily one of the best I’ve seen. The FAQ for their app is full of terrific information about the app. They are honest and upfront about everything inside their optional subscriptions. The cuteness throughout the app adds a human element you hardly get from software. The #1 feature in my book is the customization of the Apple Watch complications. Brilliant! This one feature is worth the asking price to get great data on my watch. It’s a major upgrade over the default weather app. The $4.99 a year subscription is well worth it to have it update reliably and it’s customizable!!!! Thank you for all of your attention to detail. This app isn’t just great software, it’s a piece of art.
gayb0y34532 - Best weather app on the market
I don’t think I’ve ever reviewed an app, but I had to share with the world just how accurate this app is. It’s worth every cent folks, you will not find a more accurate weather app out there. Is it quirky? Yes. Is it trendy? Yes. Is it nerdy? Oh yeah. Pay for the different tiers they offer - the information you get is amazing. Today there was a thunderstorm one mile away from me and the app told me I wouldn’t get any rain. So, we packed up and had a picnic at the local park. We had sunshine the entire time and watched the thunderstorm cruise on by just north of us. The accuracy is unlike any other. Quit wasting your time with dark sky, weather underground, weather channel, etc. buy this app now and enjoy the features. Be prepared to nerd out with some weather!
MattMontan - Love it, but can still be improved
Overall, it’s a great app. But there is one thing that really should be added. The main screen is an hourly graph with daily summaries of highs and lows with some additional information listed on the bottom. There, however, is no daily graph which should be added. It would be essentially the same design as the hourly graph, but, you know, daily. It wouldn’t provide any extra information than before. It would simply show the same information in a more visual fashion . This could be accessed through swiping up on the daily summary or something else.
Also, you should be able to display a wider range of data. I don’t like to have to choose between knowing wind speed and precipitation accumulation
Twentdoggo - Subscription after purchasing limited app
Back when I first got the app, I enjoyed it. Weather really had a personality and a lot of cute little details. A year or so later, the charm is gone and the app feels really barebones. Dark Sky costs about the same price and you get a lot more. No subscription for notifications for one. You have to pay for a subscription to get severe weather alerts from CARROT when all of the other free apps do that. I get it’s all ad-free, but this app doesn’t have much going for it besides the “mascot”. I love the personality in this app don’t get me wrong, there’s just no good features when paying for this app for the first time. If the app was free with a subscription model, this would be different. If this app included actual good features like Radarscope at first, this would also be different. I don’t see these things changing, so this app won’t be stinking around for much longer for me.
epluribusunix - What’s the point?
As far as I can tell, the biggest “feature” of this app is that it’s snarky and/or insulting. If that was what I was interested in, then this would be a solid 4-star review, maybe 5.
Other than that, the design is cute and creative, but it doesn’t actually give you any more (or even as much) information than any other app. I was drawn-in by the promise of multiple data sources, but the way it’s implemented is clunky and slow. My hope was to have a way to compare sources side-by-side, or even back-to-back, but no dice. I even paid for the premium subscription to see if there was something I was missing. Super potential turned into super fail - super sad.
There is one thing they did well though: the rain graph. This seems to be the only app that realizes that the amount of rain is more important than the chance of rain. The way they display this is quite useful, though I think it might be even further improved by adding a line on the graph for percentage in addition to the text.
My recommendation for the devs: spin-off the “where in the world” feature into its own game (it might be good enough to charge for!) and focus on the weather. Add some stuff that’s weather-related (like dew point, UV index, air quality, etc.). Keep or kill the snarky bot (it brings no real value), but figuring out a way to overlay or quick-compare sources would make a /really/ killer app.
BoilerRy - Fantastic
I don’t typically write reviews, however, it’s the least I can do in response to the great product put out by this developer. Carrot weather is constantly updated and works great. I love the option of being able to select what source of weather I would like to use. It’s obvious this developer truly cares about his/ her product and making sure their customers are taken care of. To be honest, I think the developer could be charging more to use the premium version of this app, and I would gladly pay it. The only tweak I would like to see, is native push notifications for the severe weather alerts. As I understand it, this is coming in a future release. The Watch app is second to none! Great job CARROT⁵!!!
mb1588 - iPhone app is fine, watch app isn’t
I mainly got this app for the watch complication. Unfortunately, it has been my experience that the complication doesn’t update itself enough to be useful. For example, I’ll often find the complication insisting it is sunny out when it has actually been dark out for 6+ hours. I understand there is a premium membership subscription that would provide more frequent complication updates, but I feel like the basic complication should at least be usable. Displaying 6+ hour old information seems unacceptable to me.
The Watch app itself is pretty good when it works. It can display a lot of information, which I appreciate. Unfortunately, I’ve found that it becomes completely unresponsive every so often, requiring a force quit. I also had a problem where it would crash on launch every time. Deleting and reinstalling the app fixed this problem.
I have not had as many problems with the iPhone app. It’s laid out well, and I’ve found that the forecasts are usually pretty good for my area. I like that the AI can be customized, and the secret locations are a fun distraction. The achievements can also be fun (Except the ones that require you to purchase other apps.)
Overall, I’m mostly disappointed with my purchase. I wanted a reliable weather app for my watch, but this was not it.
Joey Audi - Not just the attitude, greedy.
The carrot weather app shows a nice user interface with easy and nice looking controls over the information of the weather, allows the view of a map and clouds etc...
Though it was not enough, the app was 5$ and it didn't give something more than just sarcasmic and sometimes even rude comments, I had disabled the personality function but felt that it's just an ordinary weather app. In the next hours I decided to refund it, alas I couldn't as the apple developers or the person who controls the refunds did not allow it. So I went along into using it since it does have an Apple watch app which is nice, then came the time where they turned subscription based, so all in all I've lost the 5$ that I wanted to refund in the first place and then to enable other features I'd have to pay more. I became to realise that the best app for the weather is the native weather app.
mgmiller68 - Terrific app with phenomenal Apple Watch functionality functionality!
Fantastic app, love the Apple Watch functionality/customizations! One feature I’m hoping the developer will add is a badge icon for the iPhone/iPad/ iPod Touch, which would show the current temperature, a feature I very much enjoyed from my previous favorite weather app, as it allows you to see the current temperature without going into the app itself (I submitted feedback to the developer, asking if this feature can be added, and I received a response in less than 24 hours, indicating that the hope is to add a temperature badge in the future). Always great when a developer responds to you — Kudos to the developer, this is definitely a 5 🌟 app!!!
SJSATL - Best weather app for many reasons
I’ve been a user of Carrot for years for Apple Watch complications but did not think of it as my main weather app. Weather Bug was. Recently I read in The NY Times that Weather Bug is leading seller of your
location information to third parties which is why they are free. Weather apps need constant location updates to be real time useful. Since weather changes in real time you need real time location data. With the new tiers in Carrot you can get the same features as Weather Bug, have the nice display and quirky comments. Yes you have to pay for it but isn’t your privacy important? You can now have that and all the real time weather data you need.
Dio from that one show - Deceptive marketing, massive letdown
I bought this app right at the release of iOS 14 for the widgets and it was a few bucks up-front. I thought, why not, I’m willing to support developers who are straightforward about their pricing rather than luring customers in and charging them monthly. I guess I’m the idiot here because soon after the recent update, my widget was “locked” and required an additional subscription fee. Personally I think this is a disgusting and shady marketing tactic. Will some people find the subscription to be worth it? Sure, but many others are getting screwed out of an entry fee for an app that doesn’t deliver what was promised. Pricing aside, I was underwhelmed by the supposedly quirky, fun quips that the app’s “AI” will spit out. They’re repetitive, uncreative, and regardless of the political affiliation or personality type you choose for the AI, you’ll end up disappointed. 3.5 before the price changes, 0 stars now (if that were an option).
Jimmut - Ok for fun but UI and radar needs improvement
I like the idea of this app and thought it would be awesome and paid for the ultimate. Unfortunately it ultimately let me down as a weather app. First the main user Interface isn’t that great for as many reviews this app gets. Then the radar only allows like three things to be selected. Really? I really wanted to like this app after coming from Storm my favorite app but this isn’t even close. It’s ok but most certainly not worth paying for and I do t think deserving as high of votes as there are much better weather apps. I guess the puns and such are great and very entertaining and would make this weather app number 1 if the weather part of this app was as good. I think they can do much better in the look and feel as it is very hard to navigate and doesn’t flow very well.
NOLAbrah - Best weather app, especially for Apple Watch
After the recent update I was having trouble setting up complications on my Apple Watch. Emailed Carrot support and it identified my problem correctly on the first try and offered an easy fix that took care of it. Even after the iOS 14 update, this is still the best weather app for alerts and presentation of multiple, customizable data points, especially in the Apple Watch complications. Yes, there are annual costs to fully utilize these features. I haven’t come across anything that offers the kind of customization that Carrot does and the snark usually gives me a chuckle in these dark times. Well worth the $7 to $12/year cost.
AshLilyNeko - Fixd
Good app but it won’t let me unlock secret locations even when I meet the requirements. I don’t understand why this is happening. Opening the app the number of required times won’t unlock and neither will searching locations. I’ve been basing what to do off multiple people who said that’s how they got them. I mostly got this app because I like the crappy attitude of the robot and it’s like having Bender tell me the weather. So I’m disappointed that one of the fun type features isn’t working for me
Thanks for the sassy response carrot, changed review because app is great and other people always ask me about it. Wish it was less expensive but meh whatever. Great app :)
Rossmon1 - What a rip
I think a weather app was almost the first app to make a smart phone useful way back in time when the iphone debuted. Since then, there have been soooo many weather apps that have come and gone and stayed. This one looked interesting so i paid the original small fee for it. Over time, I have not seen what it does thats so spectacular compared to free ones or free ones with a reasonable premium buy in.
What I do see is what a ripoff it is where many features that are free on other apps have a monthly charge for this one. Thats incredible, but not for me. The snarky voice and comments are good for only so long, then I want some everyday features that cost a minimum of $2.50 / month with this app.
Like a few layers of basic info that i get in wunderground for $0.0. So long carrot, its been a bit of fun and no more than that.
Picture Elegance - Exceptional Weather Application
I have long loved Dark Sky. It is accurate and timely with important information. With that being said, I have found their app to be a little boring, so when I learned that Carrot used Dark Sky’s algorithm it caught my attention. Initially, I must admit that I did not like this app. It wasn’t because of anything that they were doing wrong, I had just gotten used to other platforms i.e. Weather Underground. After spending more time with this application, I have found it to be intuitive, user-friendly and accurate - which is most important. One request, I wish they’d add an option that would allow for dark mode on the mapping system.
DivaDev - Consistently, Wildly Inaccurate Temp & Forecast
While I appreciate the well designed interface of this app, I quickly turned off all the voices because frankly, they got on my nerves the very first day. I just want to see an accurate weather forecast in a decent interface, with no distractions. Today, after writing an email to the developers, I have decided to delete the app from my devices, for the simple reason that it is the most inaccurate weather app I have ever purchased. I am not exaggerating when I say that nearly every day, the temp is off by 10-20 degrees, always stating that it’s warmer than it really is. I went to the settings to see if I could change the weather source, only to find that I’d have to pay a subscription fee in order to do that. Come on, after I already paid for the app? So, I’m sorry to say this, but I’m done.
jeb1950 - THE BEST for the Apple Watch!
I was sick and tired of the mediocre performance of Weather and Accuweather. And Accuweather’s consistent problems on the iWatch were so annoying. I finally did a Google search and read about Carrot Weather. I wish I had found this weather app when I first got my iPhone 2 years ago. It provides the weather information I want. It is also incredibly responsive on both my iPhone. And I no longer have to wait and wait and wait for my iWatch to sync with my iPhone. This app is great! I recommend it to everyone with a smartphone and a smartwatch. The incredible sense of humor of the developers is also an added plus that brightens my day!
Jake 9253 - Best weather app. Period.
Presuming you find Dark Sky a good weather app, this is the best weather app period. It’s a one-time charge app that provides weather reports from Dark Sky with however much snark/humor you want (including none- just a plain old report), in a simple, but attractive layout.
redwhtblueyes - Weather and so much more
I have downloaded and tried no less than 12.5 weather apps to try and find the most accurate and consistent app available even if it means paying for it. I heard about Carrot on the Rush Limbaugh radio show and was convinced to try it. I love it! The weather is well laid out and is consistent and accurate. The commentary is customizable and adjustable to be as tame or vulgar as you prefer. Politics or not, conservative or liberal. It’s your choice! And to top it off is my favorite feature....secret locations. Go on a hunt every day for a new location. Brush up on your history and even learn new stuff! I highly recommend this app!
Sargo224 - Great Update, Unfortunate decision by TWC
Hi, I’ve been using this app for about a year now, and have subscribed to the highest tier offered for about 6 months now. Absolutely love the constant stream of updates, and will continue to support the Maker!
Love the variety of data sources, and can’t wait to see what else is in store source wise. My only suggestion is some minor work on the radar component, but there might not be much more that can be done directly onto the aeris content. For true weather enthusiasts, the addition of model data on the map would be a valuable feature that some(including myself) would pay for a “tier 4” if needed.
Keep up the great work!
hawaiianpunchout - Simply the Best
I don’t think I can say much that other reviews haven’t said. CARROT⁵ is an awesome app, probably the best paid app I have. It’s such a small part of my life that I spend looking at weather apps, but this app brings me unmeasurable joy — it makes those moments of me glancing at my iPhone or iPad so much sweeter, and I really get a chuckle out of both the mean comments and the topical news-related humor.
I highly recommend this app. If you’re waiting to make the plunge, wait no more — this app is 100% worth the money. Additionally, this is the best app for Apple Watch probably ever. Seriously, you won’t regret downloading this evil AI. And she definitely isn’t threatening me to post this.
Arkizakel - Cool concept, but is it worth it?
I think the personality of Carrot is quite interesting. You can customize her to have a multitude of different personalities. The weather app itself is quite beautiful and gives a bit of detail per day. I use Dark Sky as a comparison. So, whilst all that is great, this is a paid app initially, but here’s the catch: to actually get a radar, and even notifications, you have to buy premium. Isn’t that strange? You pay for this app initially, and then, you have to pay again for the premium features ($5/yr). Sure, it’s just 5 bucks, but I didn’t expect that after already paying around that just to get the app in the first place. Do I think it’s worth it? Not really, but it’s still cool.
beaujangles79 - Apple Watch support...
First...let me say it took me a long time to actually break down and pay for a weather app...now...I love this app..on the phone at least...on the watch, not so much...why does my watch not update my location?? In order to get the correct location on my watch, I have to open the app on the phone first!! I haven’t been at work for 2 days, yet when I opened the app on my watch this morning...it was still giving me info on my work location...that is pathetic!! I have been in many many places since work 2 days ago and it still shows my forecast for work...so not acceptable!! Might have to go back to weather channel app...and don’t tell me I have to pay more to get it to update on its own...you pay a fee for an app for a reason!!

AG9999999 - Fantastic application
This is without any doubts the best weather app ever, making also from the boring weather reporting a great fun. Designed with attention to details in both visual and operational aspects. Works incredibly well and supports a few weather data sources, so you can select one which reports on your local weather in the best way. The Apple watch complication is great, providing full snapshot on one screen (yes!) and details for the next days if you scroll down.
I am not associated with developers of this app in any way, but being myself in software design for over two decades, I am usually very picky. This app earns in my opinion 10 points on the scale from 1 to 5!
MandydPT - Funniest weather Ap blew me away
Never have I been so keen to check the weather forecast, multiple times a day. Whoever wrote this is definitely on something, possibly illegal and I wish they would share it around. A weather Ap that makes me laugh out loud. It has a few hidden little gems in there to have a bit of fun with just go looking around the Ap to find them. I highly recommend the Carrot Weather Ap. I have actually wasted a few hours on the couch playing around with the different setting and I regret none of it. Download it and have fun. You have been warned. Lol
hugoyu2001 - App that you will always use!
I don’t know if this applies to everyone, but for me this is totally worth the price. Very accurate forecast and with other features such as finding hidden features of the world too. Educational and fun at the same time! It’s not one of those apps where you would just switch away after a week or so. I wish CARROT is a bit nicer to us though in terms of language.
Mat Everywhere - Eh...
Having paid $8 AUD for a weather app that promises to be great, has the reviews to back it up, I expected more out of the box. The Siri shortcuts are lacking detail, favouring ‘sass’ over actual weather information being read out to you, and also taking about triple the time to get the result back compared to Siri’s native report.
All the good features are locked behind a subscription after already paying for the base app. I don’t begrudge developers wanting to be paid for their work. I begrudge paying for less functionality than a lot of free apps offer, with all the best stuff being behind a second level of paywall.
So to get some decent functionality I went for the first tier subscription, and 3/4 of the useful stuff doesn’t work in Australia. What a waste of time and money this has been
Rodney994 - Absolutely incredible app
The best weather app I've ever used by miles! So anesthetically beautiful, amazing features and great technical design. The developers have achieved something very niche and unique with this app - it's the first weather app that I check in to several times a day for general enjoyment and to have a laugh (it's hilarious!) besides just for the weather. Love it - totally worth it! Thank you :)
Tāne. - Excellent App!
This is the kind of app I am willing to spend money on, the subscriptions are well priced especially for premium but the Ultrapremium is a fair jump in price, it is justified though for the price to get all the data constantly.
The app works seamlessly through devices, from the iPhone to iPad to the Watch and the TV.
It’s very comedic and makes the weather very enjoyable adding challenges and achievements.
Having access to Underground is great but a few more weather sources would be appreciated (e.g. AccuWeather)
The only other feature I could recommend is rain prediction for Australia.
But other than that, this is an outstanding app and well worth the price.
nekokawaii1428 - Amazing app!
This app has helped me so much! *cough cough* the snarkiness is the best! Quotes like: ‘it’s frakking windy’ or ‘guess what boys and girls? It’s windy!’ really just make me laugh. Please more secret locations... I’ve finished them all haha. I have the Apple Watch app as well and it’s so handy! It’s most definitely the best weather app that I’ve ever used and it’s definitely worth buying!!! Thanks CARROT!
Rob Török - Expensive subscriptions
It’s not the fact that one app has a pricy subscription it’s that all apps are going this way. I understand developers need cash which I’m happy to pay handsomely for a one off fee but it’s these on going expenses in our lives that I’m willing to do without.
Great app but I’m not paying for yet another $12ish per month subscription. A note to the developers - please don’t respond with your annual subscription rates. It’s the same thing but more of a surprise when the year turns around. Good luck with this as we head into the next GFC.
Kella12345 - Absolutely brilliant!!
This app is fantastic!!! It makes me laugh every day, I love the snarky comments, sometimes they are really hilarious. Everything about this is perfect! Thank you developers.
Also enjoying the hidden locations game in it. Brilliant widget options too which is fun in the new ios14.
Worth the premium price to me, what a great app.
Abc123deanz - Great app one problem
The new update winter in full swing ? It’s still summer here would it be possible to sync to we’re the users location is for updates ,
Here’s a funny joke we get four seasons in one day sometimes here in Tasmania Australia 🇦🇺
How did you know lol 😂
crainger - New weather sources are welcome
The ability to use Wunderground as a source and draw from hundreds of local weather stations is very welcome. The new interface is as user friendly as always and one of the best apps for Apple Watch. The premium subscription is a little high compared to other apps, but worth it for the added features.
Dave Clacton - Good but needs more accurate data sources
The app is very good overall with a few caveats. The data sources available are not accurate in Australia, I upgraded to use weather underground only to be told I had to upgrade to to top tier to use it because I have an Apple Watch.
I would be very happy if The Australian Bureau of Meteorology data was available for local weather updates
Sleg8 - Battery?
I bought the app then paid for a subscription. I love the apps functionality and the ability to customise complications on the Apple Watch, but the app was a battery hog. My phone dropped from 100% to less than 80% after a couple of hours. Usually I still have more than 80% till after lunch. Unfortunately I had to delete the app.
timelady3 - Not only fun and feisty - incredibly useful'
The fun hooks you, the feisty amuses you; but then you discover the settings and ways of viewing weather info are really useful. What weather is vs what it actually feels like is a brilliant option.
cmscmart - Needs more flexibility
The options to choose from whether it’s hold or cold need to be given a greater choice the cold option is defaulted to highest under 10 but if your used to living in a hot country then under 18 feels cold. Also about right to me is just 26 why do I have to choose from 24-32 when temperatures 24 and 32 are greatly different?
Great_big_e - Thanks for trying in Australia
I stopped using this app after seeing the abysmal accuracy is Australia. When I saw Carrot fixed the issue in the recent update I started using it again. Today, there has been cloud-free skies and bright sun, but Carrot says it has been pouring rain all day. Thanks for trying to fix the problems in Australia, but FAIL. Carrot sticks with telling me the *predicted* regardless of what it’s actually doing outside.
HighPingBastard - Excellent design, but flaky accuracy
I really love the design of this app. I have no issues from that perspective. But the accuracy of the weather readings themselves are often flaky. Right now it’s literally raining and the app shows 10% chance of rain! Unfortunately this happens a lot. Hence the best I can give it is a 3 stars - accuracy should be number 1.
supergluedhands - Excellent weather for for travel
I travel a lot and started using Carrot weather to help me plan my days and stops at attractions to avoid being stuck with no plans on rainy days. Love it!
plokijnmbhu - Misleading pricing
As a weather app, it's fine. Pretty good actually. But most of the useful functionality (watch complications, source choices, etc) are hidden behind a subscription. This only becomes apparent after you have paid for fairly expensive initial installation price.
Probably should be one or the other. I feel like I've been tricked.
astro_boi7 - Strangely Location Limited
This would be a great 5-Star app for anyone living in the US, Canada or the UK as they appear to be the countries where all the features are available. However for someone in Australia who struggles with even remotely accurate weather details compared to local Meteorology data, it’s sadly missing.
At least it makes me laugh occasionally.
App user 12345678 - Inaccurate data - requires subscription to fix
The snark is not worth the money. Having already paid for the app to find inaccurate weather data (eg: hour by hour forecast shows lower temperature than the day’s forecast) and frankly boring and unfunny snark, I tried to fix the data sources to find the premium features hidden behind a paywall. No thanks, back to WillyWeather for me. Will delete this stupid app.
Clivey AU - Gives me a laugh every day
I’ve never thought a Weather app would make me laugh but Carrot does. It’s also better for longer range forecasts than BOM app
Phildevans - Subscription Con
Paid for this app based on a review. You need to subscribe to receive weather notifications (extra $7 a year). I subscribed. Then discovered notifications are only available in 3 countries. Found this in the small print. Feel cheated and conned. Apps need to be transparent and upfront. I no longer wish to use this app. Currently requesting refund from Apple and will delete this app.
Angman2 - Finally Australian Data!
My go to app for weather now that they have an Australian only weather data source. Plus I love the cheeky robot Overlord thing they have going.
homerholmes - Meh....not enough info for what I paid
No where near enough weather info for paying close to $8AUD. Not paying a monthly subscription just for a weather app. Especially not to get info that should really be included in the first place.
dorothyanne007 - Sassy weather
Carrot’s sassy comments are the best part about checking the weather. Plus, achievements and mini games are pretty awesome. Definitely worth the money.
thesilent85 - In app purchases beware!
I have seen lots of good stuff on this app and I thought that paying 7.99 AUD for it would unlock everything.
However I was wrong. You will need to pay membership fees monthly / yearly to get the widgets and watch faces advertised.
Wish I could get the watch widgets with the app purchase at least.
Deviant_sin - Great app but...
This was my number 1 weather app....Until you made it subscription based and now you’ve changed it again,it stopped worked on my watch and I discovered you have made that a subscription also!!! SMH uninstalling now because I cannot justify paying for a weather app when there is 100 other free ones
Hedgeworth - Pretty, but often wrong
It’s a great app, but they need better data sources because the forecast—even the current weather—is often wrong.
Says there’s no forecast rain today. 0%. Cloudy but warm. Sure. Except it’s raining AS I type this and it isn’t an isolated incident.
Baldy97 - Very good app
Should be able to change the look of the complication in the top left of the Siri watch face like you can on the modular infograph face
The PiNNi - I love it’s abusive nature!
Funny app that basically abuses you while fetching your weather. It’s a good laugh and has a nice interface and side games to play as well.
Cool minty ice tea - Carrot is the b@$!h next door
Completely hilarious!! Carrot is like the unassuming neighbour who slips comments and opinions with the best poker face!
I will say that the white loading screen is slightly annoying.
DinjTheGinge - Weather win!
Awesome app with accurate forecasting - I just wish they'd just update the secret locations more often.
jollyjap - Accurate Weather plus Attitude
A breath of fresh air after some pretty dull apps. Awesome that Carrot was straight out of the gate with widgets and watch faces; a great app and team behind it
ajsnook - Great app
Great app fun way to get some info! Just don’t open in church with snark set to high and volume up! Well do if you want to laugh!
se7entools - Really Creepy
Maybe it’s just me, but I paid to unlock all 3 tiers in the app, and the things it spits out at me about having me killed, hiring assassins, saying things in my house are poisoned, mimicking donald trump’s sick rhethoric, are really not funny. I’m deleting it now. Even my friends I was sharing daily screenshot updates with are freaked out by it now.
Stuart 59 - Most fun weather app ever.
Accurate and up to date weather app with attitude. Can be your best friend or your worst enemy, it’s up to you.
Gnu30 - Never boring...
I’ve never had so much fun checking the weather forecast
Superdavey - Best weather app in Australia
I love this app. Not only does it work with BOM I can get weather data from my Netatmo weather station.
johnson_jacko - Don’t use in QLD, Australia
My house is ready to blow away, trees are blowing over, Weather alerts all over the news, radio and internet but nothing according to Carrot weather app.
And it’s trying to be funny about Tom Hanks with Coronavirus.
You are a weather app get the weather remotely close instead of trying to be funny.
mic_50 - The best
Love this app!
So much integration with all of the latest developments from Apple. Makes it fun to use, and integrates with all my devices.
Great Job Devs
flossyflower - Fun app for weather nerds
Lots of useful information regarding local weather with great sarcastic comments and fun games associated with it. And all this is free !!
indefensible - The only weather app I want to use mo matter what.
It’s rude, it’s insulting, it’s funny, and it’s accurate. Buy it.
Scct - What a load of rubbish
Absolutely terrible app and a rip off. Misleading pricing, highly inaccurate weather forecasting for Australia and when I try to change weather source... guess what? Yep, they want you to take a premium subscription. Trust me, don’t touch this with a barge pole. Absolute waste of time and money.
TonyStark⠀ - Best weather app
Easy and fun to use and get great support on twitter if you need help.
Things that would make the app better:
- pure black dark mode interface
- few more app icons
- reduce time to wait for active missions again
- more secret locations!
- lots more achievements
- more commands added to command line
Overall best weather app you can find
HoopsSteveo - Funny weather
Accurate weather with dark humour.
Yshima89 - Figured it out for myself
If you know you know ;-)
Callum35 - I don’t get it
It looks nice. The “humour” is a minor chuckle. But it’s missing so many basic features for $8. All the good features are behind a paywall. I can’t even see how much rain for a day unless I add up every hour..... I’d like a refund honestly. I’ll keep using willyweather
Reedy56 - Best $$$$ spent on the app stord
Absolutely love this app, everytime I open it on my watch or my phone I laugh, best $$$$$ spent on an app
Brianna Laird - Disappointing
Bought this app because I saw it also offered Apple watched. Disappointed to see I had to both buy the app and then sign up for a subscription for it to work on the Apple Watch too!
Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!
Kibranoz - Really in love with this app
I never thought looking up for the weather could be so entertaining. Definitively worth paying for
LooseCanon 99 - The best
Finally, a good weather app + very fun. You Will look forward to check the weather.
Deansnd - Not worth the money
I just don’t understand the cost for this app of $6.99 in Canada and loads of positive reviews. I’m leaning to the idea most of them are just fake. The app is primitive, even in order to get notifications you need an additional purchase of subscription. What then costs $6.99? Just to check on weather manually? Hundreds of better apps may do it for free. There’s lots of similar and even better weather apps on the App Store, and much cheaper. Just a useless waste of money, will delete this after this review.
elocin277 - It’s alright I guess
I have no idea why I paid 6 bucks for this app. I really don’t. It tells the weather with a bit of sarcasm. I regret considering this worthy of my 6 dollars. Meh.
An225 - Shames clients for not opening app
Please roll back that customer-hostile feature.
Agaruppa - Don’t buy subscription
I gat tier 3, that cost 40$ an year. Premium support doesn’t work, radar +4 hours doesn’t work, rain or snow notifications doesn’t work. Support is not answering. I guess that option not working in Canada. But nobody told me about that. Don’t spend your money, don’t pay this developer.
Emilia777 - No watch complications
I am shocked that you have to buy a SUBSCRIPTION to be able to have the Carrot app as a complication for my watch. This is the exact purpose for which I bought this app. There is absolutely no reason why having it as a watch face complication requires a monthly subscription, other than as a money grab by the developers. Shame on you, especially for not making this clear in the app description. Money down the drain. I feel robbed and cheated.
Haiku guy55 - What...?
No idea why the raving reviews. I bought the app and got literally nothing more than the other free apps give for free.
For the crazy subscription prices I might have gotten a bit more but absolutely no idea why all these 5 star reviews.
legendair - The reference in weather but not now to pricey
Excellent app, precise and unfortunately the developers decided to charge considerable price for the same service I am opting out...other app do the same for 10x less
Hoegy - New update crashes app on start up
Newest update doesn’t even allow the app to open. Crashes immediately. Other issue I have is at least where I am in Canada the precipitation estimates are way off
Dissapointed.customer - Wonderful, but could be better
Hi, not sure if it is just me, the app won’t refresh it’s current state when I look at my watch. The temperature stays the same as I refreshed few hours ago.
So it will be perfect if you guys can implement that. Thank you
Other than that, everything else are amazing.
Santoil - Wrong
It’s not raining where I am but it says I am
Dustbunnytycoon - SCAM: Watch complication only available with premium subscription
I literally bought this just for the Apple Watch complications but they are locked behind a subscription pay wall. This is not made clear on App Store page. SCAM
kernicn - You need to pay extra for widgets??
Seeing as this weather app costs $6.99 CDN I was shocked to see you need to pay more for most of the ios14 widgets. Wish I could refund..
kck.hesse - REALLY??!!!
I pay $7 and still have less than most other apps give for free??!!! Then you want another $1.50 to $10.95 per month for other crap??!! How’s that for your ‘snarky’ carrot cr-app!!!?
albinogiraffe - Subscription
Too much locked behind a subscription, environment Canada data is 4$ a month??? Come on.
brayden97 - Greedy
$6.99 for an app, and you can’t receive notifications or use the Apple Watch app without SUBSCRIBING for even more $$? Just wow.
showbear_hd - Nags to subscribe, inaccurate, buggy
This paid app nags frequently with pop-ups, and banners on nearly every dialog in using it, to upgrade to monthly or annual subscriptions of questionable value. It is not reliably accurate in even reporting weather, let alone predicting it. As one example, on the day I bought it there were frequent rain squalls (it was raining about half the time all day) and the radar feature accurately showed them approaching but the app’s hourly situation icons never once indicated present or future rain. There are at least a couple of bugs, the most frequent and annoying being that although the app is set to use the last-viewed location for its report upon opening, it apparently tries to use Location Services (which I have turned off in iPadOS settings) and then displays an ugly error message about not finding the location and offers a retry button more prominently than a means to search for my previously- and most-frequently used location. (I guess the developers *really* want my current location along with other information being collected.) None of these and other shortcomings are overcome by the ‘humor’ that so charms many users... it’s most often just cheap easy sarcasm and adolescent silliness. I only paid CDN$6.99 for this and I feel ripped off; sure glad I didn’t pay almost $40 for a subscription!
McFly111 - Not what was promoted
They highlight all these nice functionalities so you download it at 6.99$. Then you learn that there is a subscription monthly fee to use. This is pure thievery.
@calvin - Was great until it turned into a money grab
App was great, a lively weather app with fun interaction and multiple source of weather data. But then one day it decided to turn into a money grab of an app, never mind you already spent $6 for a weather app, now it’s a monthly subscription service. That seemed a bit too much
D g balls - Carrot
Love it. And very accurate!!! Lots of laughs too
Maya_Segade_17 - Great app!!!!
I didn’t think a weather app could be this fun or entertaining, this is awesome. It’s also very accurate and I enjoy the “Secret Locations” as well!!
TheDifferentThinker - Fun way to check weather
Great app that works on all your devices and is easy to use, but customizable if you want to.
EderntalMTL - Good on the phone - not on the watch
I like the app on the phone. But it’s quite buggy on the watch (I set the temperature on C° and it alway switch to F° by itself. Annoying).
Timothys_gal - Rip off
Don’t buy it’s garbage apple weather app is all you need not this piece of garbage that talks garbage not funny at all WARNING BIG RIP Off
seanswee - Apple Watch complication kills battery
I used to love Carrot Weather but I decided to try out the Apple Watch complication. I love it, but it’s extremely aggressive on the battery. I’ve had my Apple Watch die halfway through the day thanks to the Carrot Weather uplink. Can’t give the app a good rating until the Apple Watch companion app is better optimized.
spadict - Tiers
The tiers don’t make sense to me. I feel like I bought an app that is constantly nagging me for more money to do things. Pull in a widget and it’s another pay nag.
Really haven’t been able to form habits around using this app over the regular weather app because nag walls are really unwelcoming.
Steve093 - Widgets
I see in the update there’s a rain widget... but I don’t see it in the widget list. I even subscribed to tier 3!
Where is this?
sdfisicbscksb - Not worth it
The app price is expensive and once you have it, they ask for additional subscription to unlock extra features. For around $8 you get basically the same info as apple weather in a funky screen, but anything else is extra. Really not worth it and the “personality” of the pretend AI is irritating. This is a 30 second distraction app for bored execs. I will be getting a refund.
remmmmmmmmm - not happy anymore
after the latest ios update carrot is not the same. it’s not loading anymore and even the widgets are not loading. i want my money back or fix it
BdawgTO - Not worth the hype
Even if you pay for the app, there is still another layer of basic features you can’t access unless you pay for a Premium subscription. Too many FREE weather apps out there that are as good, without the childish insults.
Cheap101101 - Money Grab
You pay to much for the app alone, then they charge you a ridiculous amount to use the widgets. It’s a nice app, unfortunately they are more about making money then providing a quality product.
KWVC27 - Scam
The make you pay for the app. I downloaded for new widget and then they make you pay a monthly fee if you want the widget. Don't bother.
A_Mithc - Another shady business
IOS gets updated and now you're using the excuse to make more money by pulling the widget feature and making me pay twice?? Hell no! I'd rather give someone else the money.
JoeBoxr - Funny useful weather app and great widgets!
So yeah I’m a meatbag apparently. But at least I know what the weather is like. I even went for the subscription. But this meatbag would like to see some minor tweaks. First off, the precipitation chance is indicated by a percent and a blue bar at the bottom of the forecast. This makes no sense. The amount of blue should indicate the amount of water, not the amount of chance. So put the percent there as that’s easy to understand but put the precipitation amount with a blue bar that can grow all the way to the top of the forecast for absurd rain days. Also for us metric people, cut off the last digit (00.0 instead of 00.00) and round to half a mm. So no more 4.57 mm, just 4.5mm or at least make it an option. .01 of a mm is a tiny measurement that doesn’t matter.
Besides this it’s a great app! I definitely recommend it!
Dasvidania - Great update
Nice work on the ios14 widgets. Love how this app does so many things.
KingKongBunker - The best weather app period
This app is great. It blows all other weather apps out of the water.
Armyof on1 - Why are we paying for widgets?
This app already costs $6.99. Why are we locked behind a paywall to use widgets? You guys literally are putting a price tag on convenience.
killermanimforestes - Don’t work
I give it 5 star if u can update it to make my germin watch more connected to the add bc it not upload to my watch an it not working to add the weather on my watch an iOS should work right away if I deleted all other form of weather an only yours but does not work the way we all want it too when all other app doo an could be more accurate to the weather I would say 80% an when I mean it’s says clouds when I see blue skys ....? But the more funny app I have ever wanted pleas replay try to not be to funny with the replay but do for the other ppl an I payed for tir 2 an I don’t get notifications from it not fair when other app can sooooo expensive for what redone to not do what other app do for free ...I love to support u an u should update it man could be worth the cost for your upgrade ppl getting roped off is not ok an apple will resin an sue u u have one consternation at the end of the mouth never going to support u ppl been helping u for too long
Kadoxy - Perfect but English only
This app is awesome but I don’t understand why it is not available in French... 6,99$ and the app is only in English :( do you think you will add more languages soon ? I will put 5 stars when I will have it in French.
Emmett6969 - Way too expensive
I paid the $7 price tag expecting a fully featured app with widgets etc. But it turns out you need to pay monthly to unlock all the features which you can easily find for free in other apps. I suggest getting Windy instead.
Daryl Davis - Not paying for Map Widgets
Program is decent, thought I’d download it again today, but I see I don’t even have access to Tier 1 Widgets even though there is no way to pay for it.
I wouldn’t pay for widgets anyway. Plenty of other weather programs out there.
majjichands - Carrot Rocks
Great weather. Than you.
Drchucknorris - Have to pay now for a widget previously available
Cool dude. Your app sucks now
thedinnerdate - Features have been removed in iOS 14.
Seems really scummy to me that you removed support for displaying the weather on the swipe right screen and made widgets paid. You’re already charging people for advanced features and that’s fair. System level features should be offered to non subscribers. I’ve already paid for your app. Really disappointed in the greedy turn this app took.
brutishbergen - Good and funny
This app is hilarious as well as useful. I wish it gave better radar
Beil - Fun but inaccurate
The app is fun to use, well made and well supported, no question, but the weather default weather data source doesn’t seem to provide accurate information. Even free information is more accurate, so I’m not sure why the default source for this app isn’t able to get it right.
beatingT2 - Be careful
6.99$ seems to be the cost of app. If you want premium you need to pay for different tiers. All you get is an annoying voice and radar for 6.99$. You can get that with the weathernetwork app minus the voice.
Tommytomtomtom - “That cloud looks like”
“That cloud looks like” extremely repetitive and unfunny content. Anytime there is a cloud in the sky I will get a message about that “cloud looks like.” Please be creative and do better.
HorridKoala - Costs way too much money
App is good, but it costs way too much money. Seriously, who can afford this but the ultra elites in Southern California.

Angel in Thrall - SO Much Fun!
This weather app is detailed and spot-on with the weather and forecasts. It includes info that other weather apps miss. Like zombies chasing people... And people dragging bodies. I love the fact that you can choose which voice Carrot uses to insult you, as well as the degree of rudeness, from professional to homicidal and beyond. The scenes change regularly, and make for some great fun while you’re getting the latest weather. As far as detail and accuracy of the weather, Carrot is serious beneath the attitude. Extended forecasts are amazingly spot-on, and detail and an attractive layout make it easy to find what you’re looking for. LOVE it!
al.xander - Not worth the price
I'm not sure what I paid $5.99 for when downloading this app. The widgets don't auto-update and some are not even available unless I pay a monthly premium tier fee of at least $6.99. Plus, the information doesn't seem entirely accurate. For example, the day of writing this review the actual weather outside has been hazy/partly cloudy but Carrot says it's been raining all day.
I don't see the point in paying quite a lot for an app whose goal is to limit features until you spend even more on monthly membership tiers. And what's included in those tiers don't seem worth it. You want me to pay $7 per month just so you can notify me that there's a thunderstorm? And the weather in your app isn't even accurate to begin with? I don't think so.
On the bright side, it is a very funny app.
Filtered Riddle - Good but Needs Improvement
Overall, the app is neat. However, the fun messages are often not weather related at all but instead something to do with pop culture and while perhaps “funny” that’s not why I bought a weather app. I wish they were more relevant to the weather, in the way I know friend’s cheaper/free apps are. I also find it disappointing how many fees this app stacks on. It’s not enough to drop a couple bucks for the app. You then have to pay even more to access any of the really interesting features; the only difference between the purchased vanilla app and the Maps app that comes with iOS is slightly more detail, a fancy icon, and some semi-relevant (sometimes), funny (sometimes) messages. Everything else feels like nickel and dime money grab.
David345235 - Waste of money, avoid this and its hidden fees
I've never left a review, but I felt the need to give my honest feedback about this app. First, I understand the gimmick here is that the app is supposed to be "snarky" and I generally like that sort of thing, but it shouldn't be outright prejudice. It came up with a very prejudice comment about a small group of people, which is not somethong I want to see in an app I paid for. Aside from that, the dev doesn't tell you that the $5 you pay for this app doesn't get you most of the addons you should get. You need to actually setup a subscription on top of the app cost to get basic addons like... A new icon. And they want you to pay even more for a "premium" sub for other features $5 should get you already. C'mon. This app does the same thing every other weather app does, it's nothing doe i and definitely not worth the (hidden) cost.
Zeldasleeps - Funny.. not always accurate.
Carrot has been very hit or miss for me. I cannot rely on it as my main weather app as much as I’d like to. Forecasts are often off for my area. Usually it’s not a huge deal, but today, it was the last thing I needed.
We’ve been waiting for a sunny day to pick up a new couch for our Bed and Breakfast. Today we made plans to pick it up because Carrot forecasted straight up sunshine for the entire day! A few hours later it starts drizzling...then pouring. It’s been raining now for about an hour solid. Carrot of course changed the forecast as soon as it started raining. It’s a little silly. I love the idea of carrot, I just wish it was more accurate for my area. I’ll wait for updates and keep my fingers crossed for improved accuracy.
Mr. Hyperlink History - Apple TV version is underwhelming
I have Carrot Weather on iPhone, iPad and AppleTV. The TV version is a bit of a disappointment, mainly for two reasons:
1. I was hoping to have a weather map to show on the TV. I haven’t found it, if it’s there.
2. The Secret Locations game is inscrutable. How do you find locations? What secret set of remote presses unlocks them? In the iPhone and iPad apps, it’s fairly obvious. On AppleTV, I’ve unlocked three locations, but have barely a clue as to how I did it... I now have 3 saved weather locations, but they don’t seem associated with the secret locations. (One is my home city.) How do I get rid of the ones I don’t want? I don’t know what I did to save them. The AppleTV app is rather irritating, instead of fun
GayBoiiGil - Features Change
This app would have been a 5/5. I actually subscribed to their Premium Service. Before I use to be able to monitor the storm cells, but now they moved that feature to the Ultra Premium subscription. It seems like that’s the only focus lately to move more and more features to Ultra Premium and really it seems like Premium has just become the same as the base version of the app.
EDIT: I was wrong and I sincerely apologize to the developer. I must’ve tapped the wrong feature, because I looked today and everything worked. Keep us the good work, this my favorite weather app!
aphoid - Know, laugh at, and live in fear of the weather
I downloaded CARROT because it had the reputation for being the best weather app available for the Apple Watch, and it’s been great there S on the iPhone and iPad.
Even without the personality enabled, it has the right information and customizable notifications that warn me of the things I need to know. The developer has improved the app significantly over time, adding data sources and features, and making a subscription well worth it.
The personality is fun too, and I’ve laughed out loud many times. Don’t tell CARROT though, she might try to murder me again.
Robbmcg - Accurate, Flexible, Fun
For only $3.99, the CARROT Weather app is a solid app, well supported by a developer who regularly adds in valuable features. Moreover, the app offers configurable interfaces - from professional to outrageous - as fun ways to get granular weather reporting. However, don’t let the app’s whimsical look fool you If you’re serious about accuracy and granularity.
Expect to pay $2.49/year extra for premium status if you have a Apple Watch and want “complications” or if you want extra features like visibility, UV index, and pressure. In addition, Premium status allows connections to The Weather Underground or your Netatmo Personal Weather Station. Finally, this status will allow you to enjoy longer hourly forecasts and have a little fun collecting achievements and finding secret locations.
For advanced Apple Watch users who crave device independence, there’s an Ultra Premium status for $9.99/year. Prices cover all your devices like iPads.
I look forward to this app’s future capabilities ... 👍😊
Catchafairy - Two Thumbs Up!!
Update #2: Carrot, you have outdone yourself. The ability to change the icon is nothing short of brilliant and the names of the icons...😂. What did I choose? Unicorn Barf. 🦄
Update #1: I love the Apple Watch app. Apple should ask themselves...if Carrot can talk to me on my Series 2, why can't Siri? Good question!
Carrot can't be beat, although you can poke her ocular sensor (but, that's a whole other story). Who is Carrot? She's a sarcastic little robot who delivers an accurate weather forecast with plenty of detail that's delivered in a snarky (or, not...you decide) attitude. If you want to start your day with a smile, I highly recommend Carrot.
tylerpetrich - Most Unpredictable & Accurate Weather Service
Unpredictable!? CARROT⁵’s weather bot never fails to deliver a unique description of the weather and all of this is customizable out the ying yang.
Accurate!? Being able to choose from a MULTITUDE of weather sources means you don’t have to be flipping through “weather backup apps” to cross-reference. Just switch up the source to whatever you want to rely on.
I can go o. And on about this app. It’s the best thing since sliced bread in terms of weather reporting. The UI is approachable, yet playful and everything is so customizable. Cheers to more development over the future!!
PGene45 - Apple Watch failure
I have an iPhone 8 Plus and an Apple Watch Series 2. Both devices are at the latest firmware levels. What I’ve found is the Watch does not update until the iPhone is updated. So about 20 minutes ago I launched the Watch version. The temperature shown was 54 degrees. It’s 9:15 pm and the sun set around 7:45. I refreshed the Watch by pulling down on the screen. The In Process circle at the top right corner spun for a few seconds but no screen data changed until I opened the app on the iPhone and then the Watch data updated.
I may be missing something in the Watch settings but I don’t know. I have checked all the obvious tricks such as Background App Refresh for CARRIT and it was set.
PlanoDave - Horrible app
I heard some decent things about this app so I purchased. Being a bit of a weather geek I have tried and purchased just about every relevant app out there.
I guess the big thing about the app is the “AI” voice but I found the irrelevant statements pointless and after a few times quite annoying.
I guess the weather is as accurate as weather can be but you can get this with many free apps that quite frankly have a much nicer looking interface.
The biggest thing that bugs me is after paying almost $5f or the app they want you to pay an additional $15 to 30 a year subscription before you get access to the things most free weather apps offer. This includes layers in radar and alerts. What’s the number one reason you get a weather app? Alerts for when there is dangerous weather threatening you. This app wants you to pay a yearly fee in addition to the cost of the app just to get the features apps like weather channel, accuweather and just about every local news station offer for free. Yeah you may have to watch an add or two but so what if they alert you in the middle of the night when a tornado is coming.
Hey carrot weather, I want my $5 back!
Perflunk - Not updating location and conditions
Updated to 2 stars. Was 5 stars. I generally love this app and Apple Watch complication... But... Seemingly for the last 5-6 months (since Oct/Nov) it has not been updating my location or conditions on the Apple Watch complication. If I open the app it will give me the right location and sometimes show it will be raining in the next hour when previously it said partly sunny for the day. I travel to different cities within a 60 mile radius for work and some times I’ll be somewhere for over an hour and it still shows the location/conditions I was in earlier in the day. This is frustrating and the reason I chose to pay for carrot was because it had everything I needed and wanted. Please fix this because I love your app!
Kalie L. Faul - Best weather app ever
I fricking LOVE this app! If you’re willing to drop $5 to download a weather app, this one has five personality settings to choose from (mine’s set on “Snarky”), and you can also set any political commentary to match your own political views (Conservative, in my case). That, combined with the “Secret Locations” mini-game (my favorite part!), makes Carrot WELL worth $5.
P.S. Speaking of secret locations, devs: are you planning on adding any more of those anytime soon? Like, a LOT more? Because I already found all 60 of the ones that’re in the app right now. (Kudos on making those challenging and fun, BTW.)
kayce h - Political Settings
I like this application. As a software engineer myself, I appreciate it at a level most don’t. That goes for the UI as well. The only thing that bothers me is that their is a political setting. It can be Liberal, Conservative, Libertarian, or Socialist. If you don’t know, the voiced weather updates can be dark and comedic. It’s great. But I assume this political setting is to tailor those updates to a persons politics. It just caters to the topics they like of find comedy in. I think it’s great idea, but I think that setting isn’t functional. The updates I get at times are extremely biased in one direction. It’s pretty minor critique here. I’ll never delete the app. Just wish they’d remove that setting than pretending it does anything.
Eartheyes9 - Great, but would like as an alarm
I was hoping with all this personality and use of faux A.I, there would have been an option to set carrot as an alarm. Set your time, sound and then carrot would wake you up with the weather read aloud to you in the chosen personality you choose. Was very disappointed to find there was no such option. I do still enjoy this app and will continue to use it but am hoping this is added as another feature at some point. Great job to the devs! Carrot is full of colorful personality that gives me a chuckle along with my morning routine of checking the weather before I head out for work. 👍🏼
smbfenton - Overall great app, except...
I bought the app along with the premium subscription mainly because I was tired of all my other weather apps not updating to my liking on my Apple watch. I've been very happy and Carrot has been updating great, EXCEPT for a glitch today. I checked my watch this morning and the complication said 33 deg, which sounded about right. Around noon I checked again and it still said 33 but I didn't think too much about it. Then at 5:00 I checked and STILL it said 33. When I pressed the complication, it updated to 48, and the complication updated as well. I hope this is just a glitch, but I'll keep an eye on it.
zKaczor - Beautiful app. Bad pricing structure.
I’ve had this app for a long time now and while I really enjoy it and I think it’s a great application there is something that frustrates me and is worth knowing.
In addition to paying for the application, you MUST also subscribe to one of the apps “plans” in order to get everything you’d expect from a fully-encompassing Weather app like this one. Notifications, radar widgets, and a lot more are blocked off to people who have simply purchased the app. If that doesn’t matter to you, then that’s great. You are able to view an hourly forecast with some basic details like the default Apple Weather app.
I feel that a better way to market this application would be to offer it as a Free download and then offer these subscription models so that people who have purchased the app do not feel that they are being ripped off in some aspects.
Other than the subscription model, the design of the app, the “personality” settings, and all of that are great. I highly recommend it for a beautiful and fun Weather app experience.
snoop_z - 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.
ZenAngelSinger - Hilariously Fun
TL;DR below, if you want to just scroll down to that.
Because of my disabilities, I need to check the weather frequently...which becomes very, very boring very, very swiftly.
So one day whilst cruising through the App Store I see this little foul-mouthed beauty. An AI gal after my own sardonic heart!
Despite the description—which promises unique and varied responses— I really wasn’t expecting much. I assumed it would be like other apps that had a small repertoire that it cycled through. But thus far, that hasn’t been the case: I haven’t had a comment repeat itself even once. It’s genuinely funny and accurate, but what differentiates this app from others like it IMO are the many and varied options. This sassy beotch roasts you well and serves you up with a generous amount of salt and burn.
Get this app. It’s too much fun not to.
TL;DR Fun, customizable weather app that gives you, your local weatherman, and everyone in between the weather and a middle finger held aloft with pride.
guhdino - Never thought I’d care about a weather app
Can’t say this enough - awesome app! It had some nice features at the standard purchase price, but I was honestly blown away by how much customization was available once I bought the $10/year subscription. I really never thought I’d care about the weather this much or like a weather app this much 😅😂.
A nice addition to the iPhone widget and watch complication would be an option to display an hourly breakdown containing weather conditions/temp, like the stock iOS app has, instead the colored circles with temp every two hours Thanks!
Ryan McGuffey - Not Bad
The information is mostly accurate every I’ve checked. The app is very intuitive and I like the “find the location” mystery game. Lastly, the design is clever and never boring like most other apps. Basically, CARROT is to the weather world what Waze is to the navigation world.
The radar is not great compared to other apps that are free. Also, the AI comments/jokes were witty, unbiased, and pretty hilarious at first. Now I think they hired the Daily Show to write their jokes, because much like a hipster fresh out of art school, every joke is almost exclusively coated in the noxious scent of eau de liberal.
LC-39 - Download this app
Unleash Carrot’s full potential in Settings, sit back, and enjoy whimsical musings re: Earth’s impending doom and eviscerating social/political commentary based on the day’s news and your local forecast. This is a highly customizable app; pick what matters to your life- level of meteorological detail, personal snark preferences, drop the rest. App draws from a robust data source, UI is unusually clean, and even the most obsessive raindrop-chaser can see a detailed forcast in a single glance, even on an Apple watch. Has been consistently enjoyable and useful for almost a year now- highly recommend.
Riddles27 - Really quite fun 😁
C.A.R.R.O.T. makes checking the weather a whole lot more interesting. If you're like me and have multiple weather apps, this one is great for the basic info (general overlook), AND it has enough options and features to get you accurate, hyper-local data and forecasts (via both PWS options, and choice of data source i.e AccuWeather, Dark sky...). All the while a crazed A.I. named Carrot spews the weather (and random thoughts) laced with attitude and profanity! These are adjustable as well. Thanks carrot, your sinicism makes me smile, and I somehow get more optimistic.
The carrot alarm is awesome too
redraskal - literally the best $5 I’ve ever spent
I love being able to check the weather in a nice looking app... especially when I get death threats all the time in it! The DarkSky API is certainly more accurate than the weather channel (I deleted the iOS Weather app) and I like being able to see when precipitation will start/end by the minute and how hard it will come down from the sky controlled by CARROT. At the same time, the ad is actually 100% accurate about how much fun it is to check the weather in this app.
Gotta run now, I’m being warned about the fog...
wxboss - Lots of data. Great notifications! ⛈☔️💨
I’ve been using Carrot Weather for a while, and I find it to have the best features and options for the price.
Yes, there is an initial cost and 3 available subscription tiers if you so desire, but I have found that the subscription tiers really deliver what they’re supposed to.
I subscribed to the Tier 3 option annually for a couple years now because I live in a hurricane zone and getting up to date information and alerts is important when these storms approach. I have found that Carrot delivers alerts much faster and more reliably than many other well known weather apps I’ve used. I especially like the ‘Storm Cell’ alert which has always done a fantastic job of letting me be aware of (with sufficient warning) approaching bad weather for my location.
This is a weather app I can depend upon, and you don’t want an app that will let you down when you need it most!
ReviewNicknamesAnnoyMe - This one is the best.
Probably one of the most expensive apps on my phone - top 5 at least. But absolutely worth it. The app is great looking and customizable. It can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. The Map Layers are great - many to chose from, very detailed and beautiful to look at. I do wish there were a couple more “big” weather networks to chose from - kind of wish Weather Channel was back. But at the moment of this review, between AccuWeather and DarkSky sources it’s been fine. - I also appreciate the Storm/Hurricane tracker.
Dennis3386 - $5 Is Only The Beginning
Ok... five bucks for a weather app that is no more accurate than my free Dark Skies. That’s ok... it has a personality and a nice interface. I’m willing to invest my latte money for today.
But... wait... hold on... if you want notifications... guess what? You have to subscribe. Didn’t have to do that with my free app, so why would I want to pay another $2.99 month to these pathetic bandits who didn’t have the courtesy to warn you up front.
That warrants a 2 star ratings.
It goes down another 2 stars - sorry, Apple wouldn’t let me give a 0 rating, because you get constantly hounded to upgrade. I put it in the same league as the spam calls I get about extended warranties for my call.
In short.... stick to Dark Skies. Carrot doesn’t even kiss you while it’s screwing you.
Disizjdjzja - Very useful, if your willing to pay for it.
This app is extremely expensive. Not only is there an upfront cost, but you need to pay for every piece of extra functionality. It’s nice and detailed, and looks nice to, but for me I just want a simple and detailed wether experience that I can check in and get out just as fast. I don’t need an AI to tell me I’m stupid every time I want to see if it’s going to rain. I know, you can turn him off, but there’s still the fact you have to to pay for any extra functionality, it’s just not worth it. I use the stock IOS weather app for quick checks, then I have the Storm Radar app by the weather channel for a more detailed look. Much easier and cheaper to use.
SirCadvan - Fracking Love this app!
Compared to all the other weather applications on the market, there’s nothing quite like carrot. Whether you like to be threatened, degraded or perhaps you feel like being treated like a snowflake, carrot does it all. This is the weather app that your mother warned you about. Highly accurate, easy to use, and extremely useful I will never use another weather app ever again. It’s a darn shame there isn’t a 10 star option, because she definitely deserves it. Well, gotta run, She’s just hired a hitman for my five star rating!
Anon777264 - Great Character Poor Performance
This app sports a lot of character with all the little comments however as a app that you use on your watch to tell you the current weather at the twist of a wrist it is somewhat lacking.
The issue I refer to is one experienced by many users of this app in that it will not automatically update until you open the app and have it refresh that way. I have tested this problem several times and performed all the fixes the makers have recommended but the problem still persists. Unfortunately I will be switching back to the stock app for now until it gets fixed or until I find something that I like just as much but works much better.
Mgrad92 - Very well done
It’s difficult for any app to balance ease of use with custom features, and Carrot Weather does a great job.
Designers and developers have made good decisions here for users who want to use this app off the shelf, but it’s still possible to adjust those decisions (❤️ customized Watch complications!) without rocket surgery.
I’ve been using Carrot Weather for a while now, and I continue to discover features in it that have let me delete other “free” weather apps I’m pretty sure I was paying for with leaked location data.
JamesInLutz - Really fun weather app!
This has to one the the rudest apps ever! I love it. The app is also a great weather app. There are a lot of data sources you can choose from including you own personal weather station if you run one. I do so that useful. There is also a great deal of information for you and it’s present is a very clear and easy to read format. If you are to lazy to read the app also talks. They have also given you a lot of items you can customize including how mean the app is. Mine is set to OverKill.
Tor-eee - Carrot Makes Weather Fun
I’m one happy meat bag (Carrot user inside joke). I’ve used Carrot for a couple years now, and it’s been great because of its weather accuracy and fun nods like snarky personalities. Carrot continues to evolve and find new ways to make its app fun. I really enjoy being able to change the look of the app with different themes. Carrot was also one of the very first apps to have iOS 14 widgets; likewise, they are one of the first apps to build on and improve initial widget features. I love Carrot and it will continue to be the weather app for me!
prod10 - Good at everything except accurate weather
I’m giving this app two stars because I do actually think it’s a cool app. It’s fun, the design is cool, and I like the little quirks.
But if you’re looking for an actual weather app, this is terrible. I paid for this thinking it was going to replace the normal weather app for me, but I still have to use that one because half the time I’m just waiting for the loading screen to finish on this app. And then when it loads, sometimes the weather is off by as much as 12 degrees (it’s saying it’s 80 out right now even though it’s 68).
Wish it would’ve worked out because it’s a cool experience, but I wouldn’t spend money on this if I were you.
Sonofthedawn - Great app, bad on Apple Watch
I love this app, it's the best weather app I've ever used, everything about it is top-notch. At least on the phone. The app came to my attention as a good weather app for the Apple Watch, but it doesn't work very well on the watch. It frequently gets "frozen" and shows weather info for hours or even days past, and 9 times out of 10 when you tap the complication to open the app on the watch, the screen is frozen, you are unable to scroll past the initial screen. It's a shame that I have to use the stock weather app to get "at a glance" weather info from my watch, but the phone app is still amazing.
Mandie831 - This app brings me joy and accurate weather
If your like me, and you enjoy some good natured swearing, and even some ridiculous hostility then this is your weather app. The weather forecasting its self is presented easily and relatively accurate.
It has multiple settings for how the weather app responds and how rude or hostile it is or isn’t.
I keep mine turned all the way up. I personally like it.
Few things bring me joy, but checking the weather and seeing the sassy/witty/rude comments to go along with it seem to bring me joy. 👍🏻
matthewland047 - Meh
Came here because it was promoted on the App Store home page. Decided to spend $5 to see what it was all about. Disappointed.
Also, I failed to realize most of the features require a ridiculous monthly subscription. That should be more prominently displayed, instead of hidden in tiny font at the bottom, obscured by the colorful screenshots showing app functionality you don’t even get. 2020 has been full of these types of broken promises. This is just like buying a chair online and discovering it only has two legs when it arrives.
A word on the widgets: they are totally boring and look exactly like the stock iOS weather app. The snark is a nice touch though, if a bit pedestrian.
Daniel tha Moose - The infamous Carrot Weather
I’m not really into writing reviews, especially for apps that I pay for, but this thing..... man oh man. If you need to keep up with the weather then this is the only way to do it. It’s hilarious and accurate. Set the assistant to overkill mode and get debased every time you check the weather. I love to wake up and have my weather carrot tell me “$&ck off meat bag, it’s gonna rain today at ten am, if you accidentally live that long....” or some other similar quip. Five bucks. Get it unless you have sense of humor cancer.
clafontaine - Best weather app
Carrots is my favorite weather app for a few reasons. First, I love its bad attitude. You can customize its "snark" but it is sure to entertain at any level. Second, I have the premium membership because I like being able to customize the complication on my Apple watch to show it. This allows me to show the weather information that I want to see rather than the canned version the default app uses. Finally, I enjoy all the little game type features built in like achievements and secret location hunting.
graciezilka - Best 5$ spent ever
Weather apps are usually pretty boring considering you just normally want to know if it’s gonna rain or what the temp is, but I feel like this really interactive with the amount of things it says to you, it’s absolutely hilarious and probably the best 5$ I’ve spent in my lifetime. If you don’t like all of the swearing too there’s a PG mode which I really like that it’s an option, there’s also a bunch of ways you can customize the app which I think is super cool, way different from any other weather app ever. It’s amazing.
Buxmac - BEST WEATHER APP. EVER.
As a professional aviator, I enjoy a lot of weather observation and forecast resources. However, when I’m off duty, I prefer something a little more user-friendly, but just as accurate and reliable.
Carrot is the best, and even more so, because they have a great sense of humor, and weather/geography games, challenges, and offer merit for achievements, even being rained on for 3 consecutive days.
Splurge and get the extra membership for more fun and prepare to get a laugh, even if the forecast is gloomy (its probably your fault anyway).
Ghjkvf - Buy Dark Sky
I have had and used both. The notifications are much more accurate on Dark Sky, even though Carrot claims to be on the same page as Dark Sky. The radar is fantastic on Dark Sky compared to that of Carrot’s. Carrot also seems so jumbled and is hard to read at times, when you need to find information regarding the weather fast. Sure, the humor can be funny at times, but after hearing so many lines, it seems pointless—weather is weather. If you are a minimalistic person, don’t even consider this app. Overall, Dark Sky is just the better app. If you are looking for a reliable and accurate weather forecaster, save yourself some time and money by heading over to Dark Sky and purchasing it instead.
WPA Supplicant - Pay 4.99 for an app to have most features locked by additional subscription
This is the biggest joke to pick someone’s pocket. I decided to pay the 4.99 only to find out most features are locked and you have to pay a continuing subscription to use them. Turns out, there are a lot of free apps out there that will send you notifications. This is a nice model, props to you for targeting the suckers out there willing to pay a subscription for weather. I understand a one time payment for the app but not a subscription. In summary, if you are willing to buy this app and then pay for a subscription then this app is for you. If not, there are lots of free alternatives out there that are lots better and send notifications.
no niknams lft - The rumors are true!
Knowing the weather is very important for my work. I even bought a personal weather station to get hyper local reports remotely. I tried many weather apps before giving Carrot a try. I did not think this was a serious app until after downloading and seeing all the incredible features. Not only is this a serious app that provides detailed and accurate weather reports, but it is actually fun to use with all those snarky comments. Great app for weather geeks with thick skins!
Stephensm - Most consistent radar out there
I’ve tried dozens of weather apps, and this one has the easiest interface w/o clutter from ads AND has the most consistent radar data (other than professional radar apps that are not meant for the layperson). I’ve been so severely disappointed in so many weather apps and, after TWC bought out and began to systematically ruin WU, I made the switch to CARROT. 10/10 would recommend, especially if you’re looking for good radar and a great interface.
SamP2020 - No notifications even after paying for the app
I’m not understanding why this app has got these many good reviews, unless I’m missing something. This app doesn’t send you any notifications unless you pay for their subscription service, which is ridiculous because you already bought this app and would at least expect this basic feature, which even other free weather apps offer. So if there is a weather advisory for tornado in your area, good luck with knowing in advance until you get alerts issued by your phone/career. Most disappointing investment ever on App Store. Hopefully Apple will make their default app little better with their acquisition of Dark Weather. I won’t recommend Carrot Weather to anyone.
Soadjer - Incorrect Weather Data on Watch Complication
I have looked everywhere. All I want is a weather app that works with Watch complications. Carrot offers that, but the information being displayed is often wrong.
For example, it’s well below freezing and snowing several inches today yet my Watch complication displayed a rain icon along with “Rain for the hour.” I had to open the app on my phone before the information displayed in the complication was corrected. The whole point of paying for the premium subscription is to get up-to-date weather information right from my Watch face.
I have several screenshots going back several months when the Watch complication displays incorrect information. I’ve also contacted the developer and tried different weather sources but this issue continues intermittently.
Edit: I just noticed another two star review from a couple months before mine with a very similar complaint and the developer response is “fake news.”
Don’t waste your money if the developer won’t fix the issues.
Vulgar demos - Great watch app
I love the watch app. I love the double tap feature to see another service on iPhone. But the iPhone app has too much whimsy, which I get is it’s “thing.” But I don’t like it, even in professional mode. Hard to see what condition is like, say, next Wednesday at 6pm because the scrolling is a little annoying and vertigo inducing. Not enough info density on screen. Also too much landscape, not enough info on top. The daily summary on bottom is verbose ridiculously unhelpful at a glance. I like Weatherline, but that app doesn’t have a watch app and doesn’t use accuweather or wunderground. Can’t have everything in life, I guess.
