What you need to know
- CARROT Weather 5 is a complete redesign including cards, new data, and more.
Popular weather app CARROT Weather has a big new update out, with version 5 bringing with it a completely new look and feel. But the changes aren't only skin deep, with new features abound.
The first thing you'll notice is the new look, with new artwork throughout. That even goes as far as Apple Watch complications, with the aim being to make everything look great while still showing useful information.
Part of showing that information to users includes the new cards. CARROT 5 wants to make sure you see the data that's most useful. The kind of data that is often hidden away in other weather apps. Not so with CARROT 5.
There's more going on here as well, including even more customization options than previous releases as well as some new prebuilt presets for those who don't want to have to do all the work themselves.
Finally, we have the business model. CARROT 5 is now a free download with a subscription giving users access to all the new hotness. The free version of the app does include ads, but there's a twist.
Those who want to pay for the full experience can hand over anything from $4.99 per month to $14.99 per month depending on the features required. Annual options are available as well, while existing buyers are covered, too.
The newly updated CARROT 5 is available from the App Store now.
