You’ll actually be looking forward to a blizzard just to see what CARROT has in store for you!

  • Not as useful as the mobile app

    Note - there is a separation in the funcitonality of the MacOS app vs the mobile app. The biggest difference is the representaiton of the hourly forecast. On the iOS app, the temp and precipitation are shown as a line and bar chart, and its easy to swipe through the entire week and see what times of day will have the highest chances of precipitation. On the MacOS app, this efficient view is not present. I would recommend waiting to buy this app until the developer updates the MacOS app to the featureset thats currently on the iOS platform.
  • Love the sassy weather!

    I don’t write too many reviews, but I had to write this one. I’m kind of a weather app nut, I’ve downloaded about everyone in the app store. I’ve used WeatherUnderground for years as well as the Storm radar app but someone mentioned to me that I might like this one. I was a little put off by the price at first, but absolutly love it! I enjoy sharing her comments with friends as well. If you like a little sassy with your weather, get this app!

    All this time, I had been seeing Carrot Weather at a distance, seeing what it can do, but I wasn’t impressed at first. But then I finally took the plunge and bought it on the iOS and Mac platforms. Well worth the money!!! This app is WAY better than Forecast (especially on the Apple Watch) or even the native Dark Sky app! But, this app has some pretty good humor, and it is definitely a trip to poke the daylights out of the Ocular Sensor every now and then (LOL). The Snarks are awesome, and definitely will get you laughing at least every once in a while. That’s all well and good, but it really does get down to business when it comes to knowing what weather is coming your way, giving detailed analysis of whatever weather conditions are present at any location you desire. And, the Mac app is definitely awesome as well, employing keyboard shortcuts throughout the app. For those of us on the Mac, we know that is something that should be required for every app out here: Keyboard Shortcuts!! Now, if Carrot Weather can improve their Radar app to be on the same level as MyRadar, we will be absolutely golden. And, because of the snarks, I’ll have to make sure now that I don’t inadvertently call someone a meatbag (LOL)….
  • Useful... and funny

    CARROT excels at its main purpose: Tell the weather and make it fun. It does this with game-like features (hidden locations being the most prominent) and the ability to customize its level of humor. Great app!
  • 👍🏾👍🏾 I love this app!

    I’m soooo happy this app is available for the Mac! It works very well with VoiceOver and in general! I highly recommend you purchase this app if you desire weather info and a snarky robot that provides said info. Thanks to the developer for creating the Mac version, and for keeping accessibility in mind. Many thanks!
  • Finally!

    I don’t often write reviews for apps, but I really think this one warrants one. It is seriously one of the most beautifully designed, fun to use apps I’ve ever had the pleasure of using. For the amount of time and effort the dev has put in to making the app truly remarkable, I feel like it has been well worth the initial investment and yearly subscription price if you want some of the extra features. Seriously, can’t recommend this app highly enough.
  • Needs an update

    This app has not recieved an update in months and is lagging behind its counterpart for the iPhones. Developers, please add the features that you have for IOS to the Mac verison. Also, there is a problem where it no longer opens when my mac starts up.
  • Fun and accurate

    I love this app. I live an area with weather that is difficult to predict. Carrot’s weather forecast source is pretty reliable.
  • Lots of fun for a weather app!

    I’ve been a weather nerd for over 2 decades. I have a number of what I would consider “serious” weather apps, which I use when bad weather is a-foot. CARROT5 is one that I use as a daily weather monitor. It’s fun, slightly obnoxious, and nicely accurate. I think it was well worth the price for the entertainment value that I get out of it.
