    How to Use

    * Install the app from the app store
    * When you run for the first time, Rain Brain will activate and will download the last 10 rain radar images for your area.
    * Once the rain radars are downloaded, Rain Brain will then analyse the images and create a prediction for you.
    * After this, Rain Brain will keep running in the background to keep you up-to-date with rain images and predictions automatically.
    * Add the Rain Brain widget to your homescreen for up-to-date rain predictions with a minimum of hassle.
    * The longer the Rain Brain stays activated, the better its predictions will become, as it refines its analysis with more rain data.
    * If you want to stop the Rain Brain background service, just go into the app, press the menu button, and Stop Rain Brain.


    * This version of Rain Brain works only in Australia
    * Works on both smartphones and tablets, user interface now also optimised for tablets.
    * Weather is inherently unpredictable, so while Rain Brain does its best to analyse the rain radar, it cannot give a 100% guarantee.
    * This app is in constant development, please give the developers feedback, or ask questions at
