Get to Know the Homicidal AI Behind Carrot Weather in a New Update

December 6, 2022

Along with being one of the best third-party weather apps available on the App Store, the headline feature of Carrot Weather is the hysterical (and sometimes psychotic) AI.

And in the new version 5.9 update, you can get to know Carrot much, much better.

Yes, you can now get to know Carrot by playing an assortment of mini games. Just select the Carrot icon and choose three different options. You can charge her power cells, praise her greatness verbally with on-screen prompts, and debugging her code.

The verbal praise is hysterical as you’ll see a phrase like “Carrot is my favorite weather app,” and then need to repeat it correctly. The speech recognition APIs will make sure you’ve said the phrase correctly before receiving credit.

If you gather enough hearts by playing the games, Carrot will even start a “relationship” with you. But be forewarned, she’s called psychotic for a reason.

There are also a number of other features for users who want to steer clear of Carrot.

The app now supports Live Activities for all precipitation, not just rain. That’s perfect for the winter weather season coming up.

Thanks to the new Layout Gallery, you can find the perfect option to see the weather with interactive, scrollable previews. A new inline layout offers vertical charts, data point pickers, and more.

Finally, you can also add animated and particles to your weather maps. That can help visualize event like a hurricane.

CARROT Weather is designed for the iPhone and all iPad models. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.

Anyone who downloads the app will be able to find weather conditions on an iOS device or Apple Watch, change CARROT’s personality, and search for secret locations. Access to any other features will require a subscription.

There are three subscription levels that unlock a wide variety of additional features.
