Popular weather application Carrot was today updated which brings it to version 4.5, adding a host of new customization options, a new achievements feature, and much more. Today’s update comes following a major redesign of the app back in November.

Headlining today’s update for Carrot Weather update is a new achievements feature, which awards you with a feeling accomplishment for things experiencing your first snowfall, experiencing your first rainfall, and much more. Each time you experience one of those events, you’ll successfully check off one of the app’s 32 achievements.

Furthermore, today’s update bring support for alternate app icons, which means you can customize the Carrot Weather weather icon that appears on your home screen, with options ranging from “Modern-Day Presidential” to “Unicorn Barf.”

Carrot Weather also adds new features for its popular secret location feature, as well as improvements to the location screen for your saved locations. Here is the full change long, in typical snarky fashion:

It’s Valentine’s Day, meatbags. I’m celebrating the holiday designed to help you forget you will die alone… by releasing a major new update!


Unlock achievements like “Cow Dodger” and “Don’t Eat the Yellow Snow”! There are 32 in all, and it will take more perseverance than the typical human possesses to collect them all.

Alternate App Icons

Customize my home screen app icon with 16 colorful options, including “Classy Toaster,” “Unicorn Barf,” and the tacky gold-plated “Modern-Day Presidential.”

Secret Locations Upgrade

My secret location hunts have proven so popular, I’ve promoted them to their own section of the app! There’s an all-new map view where you can access the secret locations you’ve already discovered. And of course I added some new locations for you to track down.

Location Screen Improvements

Not only can you rearrange your saved locations with iOS 11 drag and drop, but you can also search for specific addresses and points of interest with the enhanced autocomplete search results.

And that’s not all, humans!

  • Added customization options for current forecast slots 4 through 6. (Tap the current forecast section to cycle between slots 1-3 and 4-6.)
  • Weather Underground users: The weather station ID now flashes in the location bar when loading your forecast.
  • Added expiration dates to severe weather alerts screen.
  • Added “Professional” Apple Watch complication for Modular and Utility Large slots.

Finally, I threw in some bug fixes and performance improvements, just to make you think I actually care about you. (I don’t, but it’s the thought that counts, right?)



Carrot Weather is a $4.99 download from the App Store.
