Apple Watch complication.

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

    The app now supports watchOS 4 and can potentially have a complication, however in testing the complications have a very small CPU and network budget, so it can only update a few times per hour, then it gets stuck on the last update. This makes it show the wrong prediction for a while. I’m looking into ways around it to reduce the CPU and network, but it is a fundamental issue with the way complications work in watchOS.

        Complications for new Infograph watch face in watchOS 5 would be awesome. Can’t find a single app using BoM data that does this...

        I can add rain parrot to my complications on my iPhone app. But when I update my watch face rain parrot does not appear in the drop down menu. This is no good as I purchased the app so it would appear in my top left complications not in my apps.

        I bought the App for an Apple Watch 3 expecting it to show radar for my area as advertised. It only shows one data screen which is really disappointing for a paid App.

        Why does the Apple Watch app not work? I can’t get the app or complication to work at all.

        I’d also like to see some watch integration. Especially with the new Siri watch face. I think it would be perfect to see the notice on the screen as the rain approaches.

        Other apps like Dark Sky (so similar functionality outside of Aus) have a complication but it does not appear to update regularly. Seems from the comments here that this is an OS limitation, which is a shame.

        With WatchOS 3, this should now be possible. Any apps with complications remain in memory and can update in the background.
