Carrot’s smartass weather app comes to Mac

Carrot’s smartass weather app comes to Mac

Carrot’s special brand of apps insult you to get fit, motivate you to do your task list or tell you the weather in unique ways. Now, the company is bringing Carrot Weather to the Mac for the first time.

Just like the mobile app, Carrot Weather for Mac taps into Dark Sky’s accurate rain predictions to deliver the weather in entertaining ways. It talks using Siri’s voice to tell you today’s weather, complete with jokes, insults and actual predictions.

Notifications from the app tell you if it’s going to start raining or if there’s severe weather on the way.

Carrot Weather for Mac is very similar to the mobile app — complete with cute (and ridiculous) illustrations for extreme weather — but comes with a cool feature: the ability to see the weather on any given day in history.

The feature, marked with a flux capacitor icon, lets you pull in the weather history of any date in the past 70 years, and can give you predictions for up to 10 years into the future.

If you’re looking for a better way to check the weather, Carrot is available for a fairly steep $9.99 on the App Store.
