Rainspotting - Rain Outlook for iOS

Developer's Description

Personal Precipitation Prediction for your Pocket! Should I hang the washing on the line, or wait for those clouds to pass? Do I take an umbrella on my walk? Can I get home without getting wet? Should I start this painting job? Is it worth laying the concrete today, or it it just going to rain? Can I pick the kids up from school without getting wet on the way home? When should we pit to change to wet tyres? Should I wait inside for the rain to stop, or has it set in? Is that rain heading my way, or away? Play the back nine or head straight to the nineteenth hole? Rainspotting will help you answer these types of questions. What it does Rainspotting will tell you if there is any rain approaching your selected location or nearby, its direction, when it is expected to start, and how long it is expected to last. If you're really keen, you can even view the intensity profile of any approaching rain to draw your own conclusions. Rainspotting can also send notification alerts when rain is approaching (upgrade required). Coverage Rainspotting has coverage for most of Australia, USA, Puerto Rico and Guam.Accuracy While Rainspotting is remarkably accurate, the weather is notoriously unpredictable, and there is always room for improvement. You can help to improve Rainspotting's accuracy by providing feedback. Rainspotting should not be relied on to make life or death decisions, to guide missiles, to cool nuclear reactors, or in any other situation where getting rained on (or not) unexpectedly would cause frustration, dismay, discomfort, injury, fear, anger, hate, suffering, or a negative rating. Settings Rainspotting allows you to change the distance for finding nearby rain, the units used for the approaching rain speed, and specify whether to use the same colours that the source meteorological service uses for the profile chart. Requirements Rainspotting requires an Internet connection, and when requested, makes use of your device's location services to determine your current location. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Rainspotting is ad supported to keep it free - ads can be removed and additional features added with an in-app upgrade. Privacy Rainspotting makes use of secure servers to perform the complex computations, which saves your device's battery, and also means that the details of the selected location are sent to the server for processing. Rainspotting may also send service usage information in order to ensure coverage for popular areas and to improve the quality of the service. Details of the selected location may be used to provide more relevant ads. Feedback and Contact Feedback is always welcome, and can be sent using the feedback area of the application, or by simply sending email to feedback@rainspotting.com.
