  1. Clearer labelling of numerical data

    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…

  2. Time notification volumes

    Great work developers.
    One downfall I have is that when connected to my "bluetooth clock radio" while my volume is lowered for regular streaming music, the notification comes through full blast, crazy when it's a weekend and I hear "RAIN PARROT!!!" at 7am. Haha.
    Would love to see a variable notification volume through certain hours.

    Thanks.

  4. Day by day rain predictions

    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.

  5. Store locations and settings in iCloud

    When the user tweaks the locations and settings on their iPhone their iPad (and hopefully Mac version soon too) should have a toggle (same settings for all my devices)

    When toggled, a setting change will be pushed to all devices.

    Thanks and keep it up.

  8. Time or Temp?

    Could we please get an am/pm and or degrees symbols on the hourly forecast ribbon? I'm still not 100% sure what's what there.

  9. Temperature drops

    I wonder whether similar methods could be used for temperature drops, or wind changes, when a front is coming in. Both pieces of data can be sourced from nearby weather stations, and it's more predictable even over a 4 hour period.

    In some ways this is a "warning" app. So high winds, temperature change, rain - and localised BOM warnings too - seem part of it.

    (Only just got the app, looking forward to using).

  10. Remove location requirement

    Remove need to have location services. I don’t have mine on but like the app so constantly turn it on and off. I just want to put in a postcode and it gives me the weather for that postcode.

    We understand that people do not like sharing their location, however the app is designed to give hyperlocal rain predictions, and given the size of many postcodes the rain predictions can be off by 15-30 minutes, or in many cases it won’t rain at all. As such the location is required to ensure accuracy.

    We are not going to introduce a feature that breaks the core feature of how the app works.

    Note that we do fuzz your location so it’s only as precise as required to give you an accurate prediction (within 1km), and we don’t store your previous locations ever.

    In addition, we don’t know who you are – there is no sign-up requirement, so there is no personally identifiable information stored against your account. We just get a random id and a rough GPS coordinate, and that is all we need.

    We take privacy very seriously, and…
