You’ll actually be looking forward to a blizzard just to see what CARROT has in store for you! Accurate and Insanely Detailed Dark Sky's super accurate weather data gives you access to 24-hour and 7-day forecasts. And there's enough meteorological goodness packed inside to satisfy even the most demanding weather nerd. (Available worldwide.)

  • Doesn't compare to the iOS app

    I expected something comparable to the iOS app. Didn't get it. Maybe I am missing something but, this leaves A LOT to be desired as compared to the iOS app. It doesn't even seem like it's finished. Total rip off. Definitely not worth $12!

    I purchased this app about a month ago, and I have been very pleased with it. I love the personality but more importantly, I love the fact that most of the information, including a few image descriptions, are accessible to me using Voice Over! Great job to the developers, and I recommend this for people who need to know the weather, but like a little entertainment with it, too.
  • The IOS version is FAR superior

    Save your money on this one; just get the IOS app. The mobile version offers more customization, different voices, better Easter eggs, etc. Not sure why the MacOC version is so far inferior.

    This app always works. It is always correct. Even though I have used Carrot for a long time, it still supprises me how good it is.
  • "A" for effort and extra credit for savageness!

    What I love about this app is that it combines the amazingly accurate weather data from Dark Sky with the sarcastic and tongue-in-cheek humor from that robot from Interstellar. Really think they knocked it out of the park with the UI and the concept in general. It makes checking the weather interesting and also throws in some humor since we all know it's an educated guess at the end of the day lol. Thumbs up! 5/5 would recommend!
  • Great Weather App but Needs Updating

    Carrot is still my favorite Weather App on iOS, but the macOS version hasn't been updated in a year. I'd love to see this get updated with some of the same features in iOS...

    The develpers have not updated the app in a year. The iOS verison is much better. I will up the stars when they update and add the ios features to it.

    It's got all the fairly typical weather app stuff: * hourly and weekly forecasts * current conditions (temp, dewpoint, pressure, visibility, etc) * radar maps * multiple cities But it looks good, it's sassy, and has fun challenges and other trivia. It's a one-of-a-kind tool I didn't know I needed until I got it... On all my devices now.
