iPad overhaul

First up for the latest Carrot Weather iOS update is an overhaul for iPad. The popular app now features Slide Over and Split View support for a nice multitasking experience. The Carrot Weather redesign for iPad makes better use of the larger canvas and also includes new keyboard shortcuts.

More current observation data points, a new day details screen, and popovers galore!

For Tier 3 subscribers, the app now supports automatic foreground refreshes, which can be leveraged to create an always-on iPad weather station.
