  1. Apple Watch complication.

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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  9. Refresh in Apple Watch app

    It would be useful to be able to refresh the forecast from the watch with pull to refresh.

  10. 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.

  11. Add more radars

    I am in the Lockyer Valley and Toowoomba, the app is using Brisbane radar and saying I am too far from the radar for accurate predictions (It has rained and no notifications at all). There is no option for me to use the much closer Marburg radar.

  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. Please allow for Siri Shortcut integration

    Make this useful in iOS 12.
    Happy with it for now but want to create automation

  16. Nicer looking appealing widget

    A better more eye-appealing widget is necessary (Key word "Eye appealing")

  19. Lighting tracking g

    I have seen that you have a few requests for this and I think it would be a great addition.
    I know that in Australia Bureau of meteorology has active lighting tracking. Other weather apps like weather zone and flight radar 24 also have this feature so the data source might be more available than back in 2016. Just an idea :)

    Love the app btw!
