  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. Horizontal scroll dates

    In the horizontal scroll, it is difficult to determine which day the 3 hour block is referring. Is there a way this can be made easier see?

  7. Radar sensitivity.

    Are you able to turn down sensitivity on over excited sites e.g. Namoi ( Black Jack Mountain). The two lowest indications are not actually rain, just heavy cloud. I have logged complaints with BOM a number of occasions to no avail. Their techs. could fix this easily as sensitivity is adjustable. Even shows major bushfires as rain!

  8. About page

    Relocate the About page to Settings or Feedback and Support.
    Love the app and would love to support the developer. But I don’t think this page warrants a separate section on the main navigation menu.
    :)

  10. Hourly temperatures in horizontal scroll

    Expand the current days temperature to be in hourly blocks rather than summarised over 3 hour intervals. It could even be included in the settings as a more detailed option for those that might prefer it

    Unfortunately getting data this accurate is tricky, typically when you see this feature they may be using tricks like interpolation (averaging) between two 3 hour data points. I have been looking for a data source that can give this but it get both expensive and technical to implement.

  12. NZ data

    Would be fantastic if you could either have a separate app, or just include NZ weather data for frequent and sporting travellers. Knowing rainfall patterns is even more important for travellers, and hopefully you have a good working relationship with the NZ BOM

    It would be useful to be able to refresh the forecast from the watch with pull to refresh.

  16. Nicer looking appealing widget

    A better more eye-appealing widget is necessary (Key word "Eye appealing")

  18. Add more radars

    I am in the Lockyer Valley and Toowoomba, the app is using Brisbane radar and saying I am too far from the radar for accurate predictions (It has rained and no notifications at all). There is no option for me to use the much closer Marburg radar.

  20. Show the time that it will rain

    This could be and option to display 'light rain at 2.33pm' rather than 'light rain in 44 minutes'.

    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.
