    • Ability to change the alert to a ringtone

      I often miss the short alerts especially if my phone is not on me. Having a long alert like a ringtone would be fantastic and set this product apart from all other rain alarms. I need an alert that can wake me at night if I have my telescope setup.

      • Show the time that it will rain

        This could be and option to display 'light rain at 2.33pm' rather than 'light rain in 44 minutes'.

          I’m concerned with this behaviour as I have noticed it only serves to make the app seem more inaccurate – particularly when the storm is over 20 minutes away, as there can be several minutes of variation between each update. Using a relative time scale allows the app to fine tune the prediction without the penalty of being seen to be making such changes. Also having tested both I find a relative time scale more useful than the absolute time.

        • Apple Watch complication.

          Would be great to have a complication for Apple Watch advising how long until rain starts.

            The app now supports watchOS 4 and can potentially have a complication, however in testing the complications have a very small CPU and network budget, so it can only update a few times per hour, then it gets stuck on the last update. This makes it show the wrong prediction for a while. I’m looking into ways around it to reduce the CPU and network, but it is a fundamental issue with the way complications work in watchOS.

          • User-sourced local warnings

            Another page for local warnings.

            If you experience a particular "event" then you can log it in your area by choosing from a pre-determined list (eg. Flash flood, fog, hail, power outage etc.) - if a certain number of users in the same area report the same event, it then pops up on the local warnings page.

            The events should also be time stamped, so we can see how long ago it was reported.

            Perhaps there could be follow-up notifications on the hour to users that submitted a report, where they confirm whether or not the event is still taking…
