CARROT Weather

Android Police coverage: Snarky forecast app Carrot Weather is now on Android

I don't know about you, but every time I check the weather on my phone I can't help but feel that something is missing. Lo and behold CARROT Weather hit the Play Store last week, and now I know what I have been searching for all this time. You see, this particular weather app centers its forecasts around hilariously snarky descriptions. Apparently, I just needed a side of snide served up with my weather forecasts to make me happy.

Android Police coverage: [Update: APK Download] Neighbourly is Google's new community Q&A app for India

Google's new Neighbourly app is available on the Play Store as an open beta release, but you will need to be located in India to install it. The concept of a Q&A app to communicate with your nearest neighbors isn't new, but now that Google is the one offering the service I have to wonder if the concept will finally take off and find some mainstream success. Maybe if Neighbourly ever comes to the West, we can then see how it works out.
