Carrot Weather, an app known for its humorous, antagonistic approach to weather updates, is introducing some new features that take advantage of Apple's iOS 16 release for iPhones today. The iPad has a new multi-column design.
Premium Club members pay $4.99 per month or $19.99 per year for access to some of the features. The Carrot App is available for free on both the Apple andAndroid platforms.
Weather updates on Carrot version 5.8 will be available as a lock screenWidget. There are over 20 to choose from, including hourly and daily forecast charts and weather-based jokes with Carrots usual snark. Premium memberships are required for automatic background updates.
Carrot app users with a premium membership can get forecasts straight from Apple Weather, as well as other sources. This can be done thanks to Apple WeatherKit, which replaced the Dark SkyAPI. In 2020 Apple bought Dark Sky. Premium Club members have been able to switch to Dark Sky, AccuWeather, ClimaCell, Meteo Group, or AerisWeather if they choose, as well as regional-specific ones if they choose.
You will be able to add new sections to your layout. In addition to some that are designed to help you make the most of your hobbies, there are also line and bar graphs that show weather data. The golden hour and blue hour will have their AM and PM times listed, and the app can even tell you when the best stargazing conditions will be.
Carrot is getting a new look for iPad users. You will soon be able to display up to three columns of weather data on iPad, converting the device into a detailed weather station. The new layout is a preview of what we can expect from the redesign of the Carrot app for Mac.
