We should be able to type in a location so it isn't so difficult to see where you are on the map if you don't live in a large town.5 votes
The app will use your current location, you don’t need to be in a town for it to work – you can be in the middle of the bush and as long as there is radar within about 200km and you have phone reception it will work fine.
It would be great if we could pick our own custom sound alert for the rain alarm. Thanks.4 votes
We might end up with some additional sounds, but you cannot have custom notifications sounds in iOS, the sound needs to be part of the app bundle.
Would be nice to have a badge on the app icon showing the current temperature.4 votes
The badge currently updates to show the maximum incoming rain intensity, and I don’t think this would be consistent with showing the current temperature.
I think it would be great if you added a UV index to the weather page. ☀️☀️☀️3 votes
It does not appear that I get the data for this from the BoM so I don’t think it is possible at this stage.
Not all of us think in Celsius!3 votes
To make the app better, it would be great for users to be able to save multiple locations(I.e home, work, golf), as well as having the option of viewing predictions at the current location.3 votes
I’m not sure what this is asking, but you can view other radars by using the magnifying icon on the radar page.
Now that's BOMs offline for three months a friend told me about your app, it's been a great substitute , but really missing the 64km radius, is it possible to add one in?3 votes
All the capital cities primary radars have 64km options, however the backup radars do not.
I only need notifications to come through on certain days and between certain times. It'd be great have this feature3 votes
You can already set the hours that the alert sound will play – if you need finer control then you can use the Do Not Disturb feature on your phone.
Why don’t I get notifications on iPhone X not even the notification for the next day at 7:00pm3 votes
This is not really a feature request – if you are not getting notifications make sure you have notifications enabled in your phone settings.
Feedback via the app, by users, could be used to augment/update forecasts and warnings. If it starts to rain 10 mins ahead of the forecasted time, and users in the path of the weather report this, then the app could use that info, together with direction of travel (of the rain front) and historical rain variance along a path (I.e topographical impact) to tweak the weather predictions. A kind of AI learning.3 votes
The system is already quite complex, I don’t think this would be worth the additional time and complexity, as I do not think it would alter the predictions much.
Like the arrow on the middle of "viewbank", i have no idea what it presents.3 votes
The arrow is the wind direction…
I would like to zoom into the radar map on my iPhone, can you enable pinch/zoom/pan on the map3 votes
I did actually build this into a prototype, but it doesn’t work half as well as you would think it would. Basically it gives no extra data, it just blurs it more.
I love knowing when it's about to rain and this app is great.... :)
But it would be good to know roughly what time it may start raining at.
So let's say that rain is predicted 12pm and in checking the app at 9am... then I can choose whether I want to go out or not.2 votes
I just don’t have the data for that at the moment
It's pretty good at the moment but it could be made more compatible with VoiceOver.2 votes
I’m going to close this – I really don’t know how I would make the radar more accessible. The app forecast is already about as good as I can get it – the bit that says ‘Light rain in 10 minutes increasing to heavy rain in 20 minutes’ is very descriptive of what the radar is showing.
Even after reading the iTunes app description, Googling and browsing Rain Partot, checking screenshots, watching the promo video, checking the Twitter stream, and combing uservoice entries I still have a very poor idea of what the various numbers are, especially the forecasting screen. Some screenshots show an am/pm suffix to numbers (not in the actual app tho), so the upper row must be 'time', and i assume s the next 3 days worth. Lower row could be temp at that time, but is still inconsistent with any forecast high/low temps shown lower on the same screen. Basically, i'm assuming numbers could be any of; max temp, min temp, forecast time, distance, rainfall intensity, rainfall millimeters, wind speed, etc... Please label better, or provide at least some instructions for use! I like minimal design, but not this obscure!

I’m sure you can figure most of it out. It’s using your system localisation settings, after all.
Ps layout people zoom on watch dial would be good when in radar.2 votes
I love the mini pong animation that comes up when I pull the screen down to refresh. Can I have a new screen when I can actually play pong. Would help fill in the time waiting for the rain to hit!2 votes
It would be nice to have the alerts on my Fitbit blaze2 votes
We don’t have plans to support Fitbit at this time
Hello, firstly love the app.
I would like the app to incorporate the IFTTT capability...
Unfortunately adding IFTTT support would cost us $3000USD a year, plus all the development costs. I don’t see it as being feasible at this stage. Thanks for the suggestion though.
