Thank you so much for your kind review! Really appreciate that. Have a fantastic weekend!

June 3, 2022 | Version 1.8.2

Cute, as my favourite thing is running in the rain & the heavier the better, but for now just three stars as I cannot figure out how to get it to work unless my phone is on & connected to wi-fi, with the Connect app open and bluetooth turned on at the watch end. I don’t typically carry my phone or want to look at it, but if I have to pick it up it is easier to just grab a detailed weather forecast. Being outside with GPS connectivity seems to make no difference, but will keep trying.

Developer Reply
June 3, 2022, VAW.BE

Hi! Thanks for reaching out! To grab accurate weather data on your watch it needs a phone connection for internet. Otherwise it won't work I'm afraid. Anyway, please reach out via the Contact Developer form if you have further questions, I'm happy to help! Kind regards, Wim

May 28, 2022 | Version 1.8.2

Perfect app to see rain coming. Would it be possible to add a map which shows the rainclouds and how they move over time?

Developer Reply
May 28, 2022, VAW.BE

Hi Nico! Thank you so much for your review. That would be a very interesting thing to see indeed. But it would take too much time to load to have a quick glance of upcoming rain. So not sure if that's interesting enough at the moment. Anyway, I'll keep it in my head and I'll keep exploring new ways and features to add in the app/widget. Wim

Used this on my pebble back in the day, very happy with it then and happy to see it on the Garmin store today

It would be nice two provide 2 screens. One short time period and the second for long time. It would be easier to use it as now I need to change option

It's says it's raining but it's cleared and the sun is out.

Developer Reply
May 20, 2022, VAW.BE

Hi Abraham, maybe your GPS signal was not too accurate. I'm also looking in to adding multiple options for data sources, as forecasts are not always as precise for every region.

May 20, 2022 | Version 1.8.2

Love this app, I use it a lot

Hi Stefan! Thanks for your feedback and review, really appreciate that! I'm looking in adding more source-options for receiving the forecasts. Kind regards, Wim

Initially I had the period set to next hour- I’d have to keep Garmin Connect open so it could update. Probably not an issue but I don’t like leaving apps open on my phone. I paid because I really like how this widget mimics the old Dark Sky app’s rain widget on a phone. Paid allows me to set the period to all day and now I don’t have to keep Garmin Connect open all the time. Hopefully, it updates when I sync throughout the day. Works great and looks great on my Instinct 2 Solar Tactical. Thanks!

Dear developer, if you need buyers from Russia, then find a way to pay for your widget.

Developer Reply
March 13, 2022, VAW.BE

Thank you for your review! I’m wondering what payment method we should provide? Now Rain accepts PayPal, Credit Card & Apple Pay. Are those three not available for you? Please get in touch through the Contact Developer form to discuss is detail.

Do i have to pay to check the weather? ( Long press back button to unlock full version) No rain expected, I live in netherlands, very funny!

Developer Reply
January 15, 2022, VAW.BE

Hi Ivan! You can just use the free version if you want by ignoring that message. If there is no rain expected, then it means there is no upcoming rain expected for the next 2 hours for your location according to Buienradar (as you’re in the Netherlands). Please let me know if you need further assistance, I’m happy to help! You can contact me through the ‘Contact Developer’ form. Have a wonderful day! Kind regards, Wim
