  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. Have multiple locations in a favourites list

    The option to have multiple locations to select from in a list for regular spots or even the destination...

  4. 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…

  7. Hail alert

    Rain alerts are cool and handy but hail alerts could prevent damage to property enabling us to get our cars under cover. You could even get some funding from the insurance companies for this one potentially.

    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.

  9. Thunder & Lightning

    Can the app include whether there will thunder and/or lightning in the forecast please .

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. Carplay

    Car Play integration for Rain Parrot. Very helpful for live driving alerts with a brief radar image and information for potential dangerous driving conditions (storm, rain hail etc). Note there are no weather apps available for Car Play.

    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.
