  2. Sync for Apple Watch

    I love rain parrot, I’ve been using it on my iPhone for a couple of years now. Love it! I’ve just recently bought an Apple Watch and I’m having issues with syncing. It would be great if there was a sync button in the settings page. Also, would be great if the complications have an option to show ‘real feel’ temperature. Not sure if the complications show that already as I have not been able to sync Watch app yet.

    Cheers all!

    Update: On the phone app, scroll to the radar page, then back to the ‘first’ page – each time this happens it will reset/resend the token.

    This means that there is a communication problem with the watch and the phone. There also appears to be an issue in iOS where it gets a bit ‘confused’ and will no longer sync any data to the watch. Note this only needs to be done once, then it is good to go until you get a new phone or watch.

    Try restarting the phone, or closing Rain Parrot using the task switcher.

    Also try opening the watch app before the app, and vice-versa. Note that you will need to fully close the app before it will try re-sync, which may mean restarting the phone.

    It’s a fiddly problem but it is resolved with a bit of playing around to get the phone to…

  4. Cloud Cover

    Would be great to have a similar interactive/moving style map with the cloud cover. I work in the film industry and this would be a great feature to assist with if it will be a sunny day or cloudy in regions that are not raining. Just an idea from the film industry side :) great app by the way I love it and use it all the time.

    The problem is that the radar is centred on the radar station, so by centring the map you will have to crop the radar – we can’t make up the data from no-where.

    By moving the map, we’ll just expose an area of the map that the radar does not cover. So to do that, we need to then zoom in, or use data from another radar. If we zoom in, you don’t get more data, it will just get more blurred, and if try to use another radar, then there is a likely possibility that there is not coverage.

  7. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Hourly temperatures in horizontal scroll

    Expand the current days temperature to be in hourly blocks rather than summarised over 3 hour intervals. It could even be included in the settings as a more detailed option for those that might prefer it

    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.

  16. 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.

  17. NZ data

    Would be fantastic if you could either have a separate app, or just include NZ weather data for frequent and sporting travellers. Knowing rainfall patterns is even more important for travellers, and hopefully you have a good working relationship with the NZ BOM
