CARROT is a sadistic AI that will taunt and punish you from the very beginning, but it’s all for the best. She will guide you through the 12 different exercises over a seven minute period, providing both encouragement and ridicule.

Milwaukee Gas Light ($0.99 → Free, 5.9 MB): Get the forecast from a flame with this weather app.

Based on the historic flame light on Wisconsin Avenue, this weather app allows you to see what the weather will be like based on color. If the flame light is blue, there’s no change in view. If the flame is red, there is warm weather ahead. If the flame is gold, you better watch out for cold. And if the flame is flickering, there’s some precipitation in your future. You can also pull down on the screen to see the highs and lows for the next two days. Milwaukee Gas Light is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 72 ratings.

You must then determine how much money will be coming in and how much you want to allocate to each category. As the day goes on, simply record where your money is going and Budget Notes will take care of the rest.
