Should display temperature in widget on home screen2 votes
Is this for the Apple Watch – there is already another topic on this.
During summer on extremely hot days, or post heatwaves, when a property is closed up and air conditioning is running, an alert that a cooling breeze and rapid temperature drop has just occurred outside notifies users to turn air-conditioning off and open up the premises for fresh air and free cooling. Save energy / money / reduce emissions etc.9 votes
It’s a good suggestion, I’m not exactly sure how it would work though. At this stage I think it would complicate the app too much, but I’ll keep it in mind
What do you reckon?1 vote
Thanks, I might look into it at a later date
I would like that too, but it’s not on the cards at the moment
Ps layout people zoom on watch dial would be good when in radar.2 votes
I love knowing when it's about to rain and this app is great.... :)
But it would be good to know roughly what time it may start raining at.
So let's say that rain is predicted 12pm and in checking the app at 9am... then I can choose whether I want to go out or not.1 vote
I just don’t have the data for that at the moment
We should be able to type in a location so it isn't so difficult to see where you are on the map if you don't live in a large town.3 votes
The app will use your current location, you don’t need to be in a town for it to work – you can be in the middle of the bush and as long as there is radar within about 200km and you have phone reception it will work fine.
If we add this feature it will be a premium feature not in the standard app.
Hello, firstly love the app.
I would like the app to incorporate the IFTTT capability...
Unfortunately adding IFTTT support would cost us $3000USD a year, plus all the development costs. I don’t see it as being feasible at this stage. Thanks for the suggestion though.

I’m not sure where to source the data for this
There is already a legend for the colours at the top of the map. I don’t have a data source for the lightning so I can’t add that at the moment.
I would like to zoom into the radar map on my iPhone, can you enable pinch/zoom/pan on the map3 votes
I did actually build this into a prototype, but it doesn’t work half as well as you would think it would. Basically it gives no extra data, it just blurs it more.
Like the arrow on the middle of "viewbank", i have no idea what it presents.3 votes
The arrow is the wind direction…
Even after reading the iTunes app description, Googling and browsing Rain Partot, checking screenshots, watching the promo video, checking the Twitter stream, and combing uservoice entries I still have a very poor idea of what the various numbers are, especially the forecasting screen. Some screenshots show an am/pm suffix to numbers (not in the actual app tho), so the upper row must be 'time', and i assume s the next 3 days worth. Lower row could be temp at that time, but is still inconsistent with any forecast high/low temps shown lower on the same screen. Basically, i'm assuming numbers could be any of; max temp, min temp, forecast time, distance, rainfall intensity, rainfall millimeters, wind speed, etc... Please label better, or provide at least some instructions for use! I like minimal design, but not this obscure!

I’m sure you can figure most of it out. It’s using your system localisation settings, after all.
We can't tell if radar is last 10 minutes or next 10 minutes or even last hour or next hour. Would be good to know what time frame we are looking at when viewing the radar loop4 votes
It is always the last 6 minutes. It can’t look ahead.
Could we please get an am/pm and or degrees symbols on the hourly forecast ribbon? I'm still not 100% sure what's what there.1 vote
These use your phone’s regional and language settings
Sorry, it’s not going to happen
Feedback via the app, by users, could be used to augment/update forecasts and warnings. If it starts to rain 10 mins ahead of the forecasted time, and users in the path of the weather report this, then the app could use that info, together with direction of travel (of the rain front) and historical rain variance along a path (I.e topographical impact) to tweak the weather predictions. A kind of AI learning.3 votes
The system is already quite complex, I don’t think this would be worth the additional time and complexity, as I do not think it would alter the predictions much.
Be nice for us missing out. I get jealous when the guy at work gets alerts on his iphone.4 votes
Sorry, at this stage it’s not likely.
Be able to monitor more than one location. For example: current location, home and office, site 1, site 2. Then save them and receive notifications as well.
My company have teams (more than 10) located in different places and the job performed for those teams depends on weather conditions. Then, this feature could help me to monitor all the different places I have a team. I think this could be an "in app purchase". I am willing to pay an extra money for this.
Unfortunately this would add significant complexity to the app, at this stage it’s just not going to happen.
