CARROT Weather, apparently a very popular weather app on iOS, is finally on Android!
Backed by Dark Sky’s weather data, which is my go-to weather app, users can get highly accurate weather data and forecasts. From what I can see, the only thing it’s missing is weather alerts (push notifications for upcoming rain or other local weather events), but that may come in time.
What sets CARROT apart from your typical weather app is its snarky forecasts. For example, CARROT could say, “It puts the sunscreen on its skin or else it gets the hose again,” when it’s a sunny day. If there’s a blizzard outside, expect something along the lines of, “Somebody’s getting frostbite today!” It’s a fun and twisted way of delivering sometimes very important information, so if you have a sense of humor, you should enjoy it very much.
The app is free to download and enjoy, but there is a subscription service for those who want more features. Priced at $0.99/month or $3.99/year, you’ll gain access to a weather widget as well as a Time Travel feature.
