  1. Increasing up

    Love the Parrot! Thanks for a great useful app. A little pedantic but ‘up’ is not needed if saying ‘increasing’ as in ‘increasing up to heavy’. Just ‘increasing to heavy’ would be better, IMHO. Thanks guys.

    • Remove repeated "notifications disabled" alert

      Please stop "alerting" me that I have notifications disabled EVERY TIME I use the app.
      I choose to have the fewest notifications enabled in my phone. I do not need the notifications. I simply consult the app when I choose. Many apps offer the OPTION of notifications but do not PERSISTENTLY nag you if you ignore the alert.
      Please?

      • Remember I don't want notifications

        Please. Every time I open rain parrot it NAGS me to turn on notifications. EVERY TIME. I get it. You think the notifications are good. However I don't want them. Please allow me to choose not to receive them without continually nagging me.

        • Not picking up correct satalite

          Middle of Melbourne CBD and it is not picking up the radar that was working yesterday. It is picking up the yarrawonga sat and not Melbourne :( No good for predicting rain, the function of the app.

            • Display "Rain in [H]h [MM]m"

              On the Rain Parrot rain forecast screen,
              I'd prefer the timing to be in hours and minutes, rather than minutes only, e.g.: "Rain in 2 hours and 15 minutes" rather than "Rain in 135 minutes".

              • Improved iconography for weather

                It would be excellent to see a splash of colour on weather icons to allow a very quick view of the weather for the next few hours. A bit of yellow for the sun, grey for clouds and blue for rain etc.

                It would make analysing the weather patterns for the day far easier.

                  • Rain parrot

                    What does it means when there is showing 4 or 3 on the app.

                    • Choose different locations

                      It would be nice to be able to select different locations. So if there is a cyclone or something in another part of the country, you can choose to track it if you want.

                          You can select the radar location from the radar view page using the little magnifying glass icon , it allows you to jump around Australia also if your location does not show up immediately.

                          I have thought about adding the ability to set your location to be somewhere else, be really that does not make much sense – it sounds good but after trying it in a development build it is not as useful as it sounds and adds a load of extra complexity.

                        • Humidity

                          Rain Parrot has the best weather forecast layout of any Apple Watchkit app. Finally somebody has used appropriately sized fonts! Please include humidity in your Glance and in the summary screen of the main Watch app.

                          • Better app icon.

                            Love the app, and love the UI. But the app icon doesn't look great.

                                It is the scale that the BOM radar uses for the intensity – in this case it is the maximum intensity of the approaching storm.

                                Technically it is the amount of the radar that is reflected, which may not be a direct indicator of intensity as larger rain drops reflect more, so lighter rain with larger drops show up as being more intense.

                              • Update your Raindar app

                                Update your raindar app. Not all the bom stations are listed. Mount Isa is missing from the list.
