Accurate and Detailed
Dark Sky’s super accurate weather data gives you quick access to your current, hourly, and daily forecasts. Plus, you can upgrade to use other providers like AccuWeather, ClimaCell, and MeteoGroup as your data source!
Overflowing with Personality
From spooky fog to torrential downpours, CARROT’s dialogue, characters, and scenery change in… “unexpected” ways. You’ll actually be looking forward to a blizzard just to see what CARROT has in store for you!
Premium Club members can sign up for all sorts of notifications, including ones for precipitation, weather alerts, lightning strikes, and daily forecast summaries. (Precipitation notifications are available in the US, UK, & parts of Canada. Weather alert and storm cell notifications are only available in the US. Lightning notifications are available in the US, UK, & Canada.)
Watch in awe as the next big storm bears down on your house with CARROT’s trusty radar (for the US, UK, Canada, Australia, France, and Germany) and satellite (for the rest of the world) maps. Plus, Premium Club Tier 2 members get access to future radar, lightning strikes, and 12 additional map layers!

Summer is in full swing, meatbags! I know it’s hot enough to actually consider jumping in a contaminated public pool to cool down, but first: check out this big update I’ve prepared for you.
Achieve peak efficiency by checking the weather in Split Screen and Slide Over multitasking modes! (Disclaimer: your puny human brain may become overwhelmed trying to juggle more than one task at a time.)
iCloud Sync & Restore
My settings, saved locations, weather stations, achievements, and secret locations can all sync via iCloud now. (Settings sync is disabled by default.) Even better, you can restore all 150+ app settings from a backup during app setup or via the new iCloud screen in my settings.
Air Quality Notifications (Tier 2 required)
Air pollution got your weak human lungs down? Add a custom notification for Air Quality Index to get a heads up on days where you’ll be struggling to breathe outdoors.
iPad Design Refresh
To go with my new multitasking features, I also redesigned large portions of the iPad app to make better use of the tablet’s larger screen. More current observation data points, a new day details screen, and popovers galore!
iPad Autorefresh (Tier 3 required)
Leave me running in the foreground on your iPad and I will now automatically update my data periodically - perfect if you have an old tablet laying around that you’d like to turn into an always-on, wall-mounted weather display.
Data Sources (Tier 1 required)
In case you missed it from last month’s update, I’ve added not one, not two, but three amazing new data sources: CimaCell, Foreca, and MeteoGroup. And with this version, all three providers now have full day/night summaries.
Weather Map Improvements (Tier 2 required)
Celebrate hurricane season by tracking storms in style! Just tap a hurricane’s path or an individual storm cell on my maps screen to get more details. Plus, my Temperature, Wind Speed, Wind Direction, Humidity, and Dew Point map layers are now available worldwide.
Notification Improvements (Tier 1 required)
The severe weather alert and hurricane tracker notifications have both been completely redesigned to show lots more useful information in their respective rich notification views. Because if you’re going to die, you might as well know as much as possible about the severe weather that’s going to kill you.
But wait, there’s more!
- Premium Club users can long-press the current, hourly, and daily sections of my interface to quickly open the customization screen for each respective section.
- The legibility of current observation data points has been improved to help those of you with weak human eyes.
- You can save a few steps by adding cities to your saved locations while searching.
- There’s a bunch of new iPad keyboard shortcuts for you to mash with your fat human fingers.
- VoiceOver users can now use the Magic Tap gesture to activate my ocular sensor.
And along with a bevy of bug fixes and performance improvements, I also added 1 new secret location and 2 new achievements to help distract you from wondering whether this month's A/C bill will bankrupt you.
