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 since our revenue is not dependent on any personal information we take all the steps we can to ensure that we have the highest levels of privacy possible.
