App Description

Please Don’t Rain is a fun, convenient way to track whether rain (or snow) will affect a day that’s important to you. Many weather apps are great for seeing the weather for today and for the next several days, but they’re not so great for continuing to keep track of a particular day.

A list of new features and four new rain images. There are pictures of a rabbit in a raincoat, a robot holding an umbrella, a ladybug on a rain covered leaf, and a monster in smoky clouds.

Why did I build this?

When I had a theme park day coming up I really only cared about what the weather was going to be on that particular day. I found myself looking up the weather for the same day at a particular location over and over again (thinking “Please don’t rain!”). The whole process was cumbersome and I couldn’t find a more efficient way to do it. So an app idea was born.

Who is this app for?

Anyone that wants a fun, convenient way to track if precipitation will affect a day that’s important to them.
