Rain Brain




    *Australian Users Only*

    Personal, precise rain prediction.

    Do you want to know exactly when it's going to rain, at your precise location?

    * Should you bring in the washing now, or can you wait 10 minutes?
    * Feel like playing golf today, just not in wet socks?
    * Should you take the motorcycle for a ride or grab the car instead?

    Easy to use, this app will help everyone. Whether you're a mum, sportsman, office-worker or cyclist, never again will the rain out-smart you now that you have the added power of a Rain Brain!


    * Bureau of Meteorology radar viewer, with zoom and pan.
    * Predicts rain to within 500 metres of your exact location, and to the minute.

    * If it's currently raining at your location, it will tell you when rain is going to end.
    * Homescreen widget gives live predictions without you even having to press a button!
    * Notifications of incoming rain are selectable based on whether rain is maybe on the way, likely or definitely incoming.

    * New! Set Manual Location
    * Many more features to come, so stay tuned!

    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

    Been using this app for a week. It told me it was going to rain soon. Got nothing. It was raining and this app said no rain in the future. Now it says raining for the next 30mins but on radar it's clear. LOL. Will be un-installing.
