The end of Pocket Weather Australia


#41

I have switched to Carrot for my watch - I paid for the weather underground data because there is a station about 3 streets away and it’s lretty accurate.

For my phone I use a combination of Willy Weather and Rain Parrot.

You can turn off the silly comments in Carrot weather, which I have done and I really like it now.

Oz Weather Plus has a Watch Complication. I don’t have a watch any more but when I did it worked fine, and I used it instead of Pocket Weather. https://itunes.apple.com//au//app//oz-weather-plus-australia//id731781859?mt=8

Maybe I’ll look at Carrot again when I get the next watch, for now I am stuck on Series 1.

can’t say I like the stupid names of most 3rd party weather apps

The latest update to OzWeather now includes some support for the extra complications on the Apple Watch Series 4.

Back to trying to find a decent weather app that has watch support as have become so dependent on Pocket Weather and judge all others by this one.
Oz weather has limited stations and doesn’t include the closest ones to me also misses the weekly look ahead for % chance of rain and wind speed, which as a mad cyclist always looking ahead to wind forecasts.
Weatherzone looks pretty but like a lot of pretty things doesn’t appear to be that smart, as gives wildly fluctuating differences to what Pocket Weather reports.
So that leaves me to give Carrot a try but knowing it doesn’t support BOM data is bit of a bummer, but did read on a reddit forum that the developer is looking at adding BOM data but guess that would need an ultra premium subscription, but does appear to have best watch app and a very responsive developer.
Did read a rumour on twitter that Bjango the creator of istat menu was looking at making an Aussie weather app, which if true would be great, going off what he has built in the past.
So any other recommendations out there to try?

I use Carrot which (if you buy the subscription) will use Weather Underground data. There is a station up the road from me so the data is really accurate.

Ok will give Carrot a try, why not have 5 weather apps on your phone!

I like Wunderground too. I’m not keen on the subscription model, so have gone with the free Wunderground app (and Wunderstation on my iPad) and whatever they’ve done with the app, its much better behaved than it used to be and is turning up on my watch very nicely. Its good to have local stations, theres one just a couple of blocks from me and its perfect. I also have the actual BOM app if I want a look at weather elsewhere.
