In order to launching iOS 13 later today, Carrot Weather has got an update that provides system-wide Dark Mode support, complete support for Siri Shortcuts including parameters and outputs, support for iPad multiwindow, a fully independent Apple Watch app, and tinted problems in watchOS 6.
The latest release of Carrot Weather now comes with a handful of nice upgrades including the Dark Mode support headlining feature in iOS 13. That implies that for a seamless experience, the app will follow your system-wide Dark Mode setting.
Other improvements include iPad assistance for multiwindows. This implies that users can open two distinct windows for Carrot Weather, such as one for the weather information of the primary screen and one for the perspective of the radar.
Carrot Weather becomes a fully independent app for Apple Watch and also gains assistance with watchOS 6 for tinted complications.
- Full support for Siri Shortcut parameters and outputs. Use the “Get Weather Report” shortcut, and you can choose the location and the timeframe for the data that gets returned (current observations / hourly forecast / daily forecast). The Shortcuts app then gives you a “Weather Data” object that includes all the data you could possibly want, like temperature, UV index, and precipitation chance. The hourly and daily forecasts even provide this data in an array, so you can get at specific data points (for example, if you want to know the precipitation chance over the next 3 hours or the UV index for tomorrow). You can then use this data in the next steps in your workflow, allowing you to create incredibly powerful shortcuts in the Shortcuts app. Check out the screenshots linked below for an example.
- iPad multiwindow allows you to open CARROT’s weather maps in a separate window so you can check the radar while you use the main app window to browse through weather data. Tier 3 members can even use this side-by-side look as their default view every time they launch the app.
- iOS 13 Dark Mode support.
- Independent watch app support allows the watch app to run completely independent from the iPhone counterpart when it’s downloaded from the new Apple Watch App Store. Add locations with your voice, change settings like units and data source, and even modify CARROT’s personality.
- Tinted complication support for the new watchOS 6 watch faces.
- Added air quality index and expanded short-term precipitation forecast coverage for ClimaCell users.
- Added two new secret locations and a new achievement.
Carrot Weather is an App Store $5 download with $1/month or $5/year in-app purchases to unlock more features.
