What do you get when you combine extreme sarcasm, a malevolent supercomputer, and weather forecasts? That formula yields a healthy (or unhealthy, depending on your tolerance for sarcasm) dose of Carrot Weather, which has arrived on the Mac App Store. One of my favorite iOS weather apps, I was delighted to see the program arrive on my desktop alongside nice updates to the mobile version.
Carrot Weather on the Mac
The Mac version of Carrot Weather works just like the iOS counterpart, with the same level of sadism and sarcasm. The app provides you with current conditions as well as a seven day forecast. You can specify additional locations or unlock secret ones, like Mount Doom in Mordor.
You also get a neat feature called a Time Machine. Using the flux capacitor in the upper right corner of the toolbar, you can set your date and see what the weather was like in the past.
Updates to the iOS version
The new iOS version of Carrot Weather has the same features as its Mac counterpart, along with a revamped Today widget. There is also a new secret location along with extra sarcasm, UV index data, and a rebuilt Apple Watch companion app.
Exclusive to iOS, the update also provides support for weather maps and radar images. You also get support for notification forwarding from the Mac app, and there are plenty of new Easter eggs to find.
Getting the sarcasm flowing
Carrot Weather is available on the Mac App Store for $9.99. If you don’t already have Carrot Weather for iOS, it’s designed for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple Watch, and is available for $3.99 on the App Store.
