Carrot Weather — the forecasting app known for its hilariously snarky weather updates — is introducing some new features that make use of the iOS 17 and watchOS 10 software updates, including new weather widgets and a voice impersonation feature.
The Carrot app for Apple Watch has been redesigned for watchOS 10, with the main interface now using a vertical tab view for quick switching between current, hourly and daily forecasts. Each section of the redesigned app can be tapped to expand additional details or display animated weather maps. Carrot users can customize the data they want to display through the Carrot iPhone app.
Carrot weather widgets can now be added to the iPad lock screen, iPhone standby mode display, and Apple Watch Smart Stack. A new next-hour radar feature can also predict the movement of storms in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, South Korea and Japan within 60 minutes.
Finally, the Carrot app is now available in 14 additional languages for the first time, including Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish. This is a nice update if English isn’t your first language, but it’s worth noting that the sarcastic and antagonistic comments Carrot is known for will still only be available in the English version of the app.
Carrot is available as a free download through the App Store, with a premium account subscription available for $4.99 per month for those who want to unlock its full set of features.
