Carrot Weather, the famously mouthy weather app for iOS and Mac, is now in beta on Android. The app reports the weather with sarcastic patter, doing a mediocre impression of the abusive AI from Portal. Thankfully, you can switch to "professional" mode and enjoy a sophisticated, customisable weather app without distractions.

A geomagnetic storm has been forecast to hit Earth this week, due to high speed solar wind streams resulting from a coronal hole. This all sounds very scary, and media coverage of the event has ranged from apocalyptic to promising a planet bathed in beautiful auroras, but the truth is a little less spectacular than that.
Most of us won't actually notice the solar storm's activity at all - but if you're lucky you may get a glimpse of an aurora.
The good news is that Australia is one of the best locations in the world to watch tonight's total lunar eclipse. The bad news is that clouds and rain are threatening to spoil the show.
Here is tonight's weather forecast and estimated cloud cover for each capital city. Sydneysiders may want to bring an umbrella.
Hoo boy, the weather on Christmas Day is a bit of a mixed bag across the country this year. Some of us will be heating up the barbie and jumping in the pool whereas others are likely to be neck deep in Christmas sweaters with a glass of egg nog and an open fire. (I know what I'd prefer.)
Here's the Christmas Day weather forecast across Australia.
Though weather forecasting is a notoriously inexact science, thanks to voice assistants, pop-up notifications and buzzing smartwatches, it's easier than ever to keep tabs on the day's weather (and dress accordingly). Of course, checking the truncated weather forecast on your phone might be convenient, but it could also mean you're losing out on valuable information that could help you deal with the heat, rain, or general mugginess outside. That's where desktop weather apps come in.
iOS: AccuWeather was recently found to be collecting location data belonging to users of its iOS app, whether they had opted into sharing it or not. The weather app has since removed the offending piece of software, but you'll need to update the app if you'd like to stop it from collecting any more data.
Sometimes outside car thermometers are so inaccurate that they feel like random number generators. They're basically the worst feature of the car, next to the car's infotainment systems. That's because they're not actually thermometers, they're thermistors.
Winter storms are a colossal pain in the bum. Depending on the severity, they can also cause extensive property damage and loss of human life. If you're anticipating brutal weather in the months ahead, this infographic checklist will help to keep your and loved ones safe when Old Man Winter goes apeshit.
If you're not sure exactly where you want to go on your next holiday, or you know where but are flexible on when you go, this interactive map uses 10+ years of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) data to show you what the weather will be like. This first step in travel planning makes sure you'll have good weather for your trip.
Climate change is definitely happening, but it's doing more than warming up the planet -- it's also affecting our well-being. A new report from the American Psychological Association explains how climate change is gradually taking a toll on our mental health.
Here's a list of things that Melbourne is great at: coffee, hipster cafes, streets that run parallel to each other, supporting the Australian Games Industry.
None of this makes up for the fact that Melbourne's weather is a total garbage fire, deserving of being sent out to sea where it belongs. Preparation means carrying half your wardrobe with you on a regular day. You never know what's going to happen. I think I've seen the sky once. And that was during a heatwave that probably killed people.
Clearly, I'm not the only one frustrated by this fact. Behold: The Melbourne Jacket.
United Airlines made headlines around the world today after a gate agent refused to board two young girls on a flight to Minneapolis because they were wearing leggings. The choice of attire was deemed "improper" for United representatives, even though both passengers were children.
Despite almost universal condemnation and boycott threats from celebrities, United is sticking to its guns and refuses to admit any wrongdoing. While we won't defend its draconian and sexist policy, the airline does have one thing right - leggings are a pretty terrible choice for an aeroplane. Here's what to wear instead.
