I bought this app right at the release of iOS 14 for the widgets and it was a few bucks up-front. I thought, why not, I’m willing to support developers who are straightforward about their pricing rather than luring customers in and charging them monthly. I guess I’m the idiot here because soon after the recent update, my widget was “locked” and required an additional subscription fee. Personally I think this is a disgusting and shady marketing tactic. Will some people find the subscription to be worth it? Sure, but many others are getting screwed out of an entry fee for an app that doesn’t deliver what was promised. Pricing aside, I was underwhelmed by the supposedly quirky, fun quips that the app’s “AI” will spit out. They’re repetitive, uncreative, and regardless of the political affiliation or personality type you choose for the AI, you’ll end up disappointed. 3.5 before the price changes, 0 stars now (if that were an option).
I heard some decent things about this app so I purchased. Being a bit of a weather geek I have tried and purchased just about every relevant app out there. I guess the big thing about the app is the “AI” voice but I found the irrelevant statements pointless and after a few times quite annoying. I guess the weather is as accurate as weather can be but you can get this with many free apps that quite frankly have a much nicer looking interface. The biggest thing that bugs me is after paying almost $5f or the app they want you to pay an additional $15 to 30 a year subscription before you get access to the things most free weather apps offer. This includes layers in radar and alerts. What’s the number one reason you get a weather app? Alerts for when there is dangerous weather threatening you. This app wants you to pay a yearly fee in addition to the cost of the app just to get the features apps like weather channel, accuweather and just about every local news station offer for free. Yeah you may have to watch an add or two but so what if they alert you in the middle of the night when a tornado is coming. Hey carrot weather, I want my $5 back!
Whatever this app says for the weather, think the opposite. Cool app features but ridiculously inaccurate data
Very resourceful app. Wish I would’ve jumped on this sooner. Easy to move around UI. Great addition for my Apple Watch as well.
You are unable to set location for the widgets so you’re just stuck with your current location on the widget. So much for having multiple widgets with multiple locations like every other weather app.
I paid $4.99 and feel like a sucker. It (carrot) doesn’t even give you wind speed⁉️ Weather Underground does SO MUCH MORE FOR FREE‼️
I don’t have a clue how I’ve been on this all for 3 years now. Maxed out on tiers as this app is amazing. Watch is amazing and I love the customizability of it. And the app itself. Absolutely love it. Well worth the cost.
I’m one happy meat bag (Carrot user inside joke). I’ve used Carrot for a couple years now, and it’s been great because of its weather accuracy and fun nods like snarky personalities. Carrot continues to evolve and find new ways to make its app fun. I really enjoy being able to change the look of the app with different themes. Carrot was also one of the very first apps to have iOS 14 widgets; likewise, they are one of the first apps to build on and improve initial widget features. I love Carrot and it will continue to be the weather app for me!
Love this app but please add more secret locations!!!! Best weather app EVER
This is a pretty compelling package. It has good notifications and a nice, customizable watch app. The old widget was much better than the new ones because it could instantly resize to show more info. The iPhone app isn’t good. It’s UI prefers cheesy graphics over information and usefulness. The buttons are large and round and feel very much like a toy. I no longer use this app but used it for multiple years and think it’s a good app, just not what I want personally.
