CARROT Weather 5 Launches as Free App with Impressive Customization Options »

I’ve used CARROT Weather for several years. I love weather apps, and I love apps that take advantage of everything Apple has to offer on its platforms, and CARROT sits right at the intersection.

The design is all-new, and more liking to my tastes than before, with less artwork and better data density. It comes with several themes, any of which you can customize. Here is how I have my CARROT Weather set up:

CARROT Weather 5

The previous version of CARROT Weather was $4.99, with in-app subscriptions available for additional features. With version 5, it is a free download with three tiers of subscriptions:

  • Premium ($4.99/month or $19.99/year) provides additional features like weather data sources, notifications, customization, widgets, and Apple Watch complications.
  • Premium Ultra ($9.99/month or $39.99/year) includes all the features of Premium, plus rain, lightning, and storm cell notifications (where available), a weather maps widget, and quick data source switching.
  • Premium Family ($14.99/month or $59.99/year) includes all the features of Premium Ultra, with the added benefit of being shareable with up to five family members via Appleā€™s Family Sharing service.

For more info on how this affects existing users, check out this post on Reddit. In short, users automatically get moved to the new tier that corresponds with the features they were paying for previously.

CARROT is a truly important app to me, and version 5 makes it better than ever. If you’ve never checked it out, now is a great time.
