Carrot Weather, the forecast app known for its fun and sarcastic weather updates, is introducing some new features using the iOS 17 and watchOS 10 software updates arriving today, including new weather widgets and a voice spoofing feature.
The Carrot app for Apple Watch has been redesigned for watchOS 10, and the main interface now uses a vertical tab view to quickly switch between current, hourly, and daily forecasts. Each section of the redesigned app can be tapped to zoom in on additional details or display animated weather maps. Carrot users can customize the data they want to be displayed through the Carrot iPhone app.
Carrot weather widgets can now be added to the iPad Lock screen, iPhone StandBy screen, and Apple Watch Smart Stack. A new next-hour radar feature can also predict the movement of storms within 60 minutes in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, South Korea and Japan.
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 only be available in the English version of the app.
Carrot is available as a free download through App Storewith premium account subscriptions available for $4.99 per month for people who want to unlock its full feature set.
