      • Rain parrot is crazy

        Originally rain parrot was so accurate now since prior update this app was totally irrational say it was actually raining when it was a totally clear sky. Updated and it seemed better for a day or so now totally unreliable.

        • Horizontal scroll dates

          In the horizontal scroll, it is difficult to determine which day the 3 hour block is referring. Is there a way this can be made easier see?

          • Apple Watch complications.

            Would be great. Especially with the new Series 4 faces, so much potential.

              • Change Location

                I love the idea of rain parrot for slipping my bicycle commute in between the showers. To make this even better it would be good to be able to change the location so that I can see predictions on when it will rain along the route. For example the rain here usually comes from the W and my commute home from work is E to W. If I could set the location to my home and see that it isn’t expected to rain there for 40 mins then I know that I could get home dry. Leaving the location at…

                  We are looking into adding additional locations on a separate page. Note we have tried this feature and it isn’t as useful as it sounds, as the rain often travels faster than you can. So by the time you arrive at your new location the rain prediction is completely different to when you left as so much time has passed.

                • Apple Watch screens

                  Last update removed two of the three Apple Watch screens, now can’t access radar and rainfall chart on the watch. Could you please fix? Otherwise a brilliant app.

                  • Add Location

                    Knowing if I have to go home and take washing off the line before it rains; should travel to the soccer game or will it be washed out; drive to the beach or will I get there and turn around; go home to mow the lawn before it’s too late or just ray put are things that really make this app stand out.
                    I use alternate locations on other free weather apps all the time, for this paid one that looks specifically at rain, it’s a real asset to those that have invested their cash for you.

                    • Radar sensitivity.

                      Are you able to turn down sensitivity on over excited sites e.g. Namoi ( Black Jack Mountain). The two lowest indications are not actually rain, just heavy cloud. I have logged complaints with BOM a number of occasions to no avail. Their techs. could fix this easily as sensitivity is adjustable. Even shows major bushfires as rain!

                          • Radar times (and predictions?)

                            It would be good to have times going along with the radar images, as seems to be common with most apps. Just makes it easier to estimate how quick rain will arrive/pass on that screen as well.

                            Also, the Weather Channel app has a radar prediction loop as well, which can be very useful.

                            Yours is certainly the nicest animation of all the ones I’ve seen, so would be great to add a few common features.

                              The current design focuses on keeping the design clean and removing any information that is not required. The point of the radar page is that it is always up to date, and will let you know when the next image is arriving. The prediction page tells you when the rain is arriving.

                            • Zoom the map

                              I have no idea if the radar is showing rain over my location or not. I can’t even tell where my exact location is on the map (it doesn’t show my suburb).
                              Zoom in on the map to show details makes the information really relevant and useful. So far, I’m using the weatherzone radar map more than this one.

                                      Unfortunately getting data this accurate is tricky, typically when you see this feature they may be using tricks like interpolation (averaging) between two 3 hour data points. I have been looking for a data source that can give this but it get both expensive and technical to implement.

                                      • 48hr forecast icons are difficult to see

                                        +Make the 48hr forecast panel larger or clickable to show more details like a percentage likely hood of rain and at what time the rain should occur per hour or 2hr. Also show wind speed, wind direction, temperature etc. It's convenient to plan the day around this info.
