In Adelaide we’ve had some good rain over the last 24 hours (much needed!) and I had the opportunity to test the app on a Galaxy Tab S 8.4″ tablet. I think this screenshot really does it justice! AusRainAR is available from the Google Play store.
By popular demand, I’ve released a version which works for rain radars in the United States, called US Rain AR. You can find US Rain AR on the Play Store.
Just a quick note to anyone who may have trouble loading the map interface, please ensure the Google Play Services application on your device is the latest version. Typically Google Play Services will be updated automatically, however I discovered the issue while testing on a brand new device, and a manual update was required. Google Play Services can be updated from the Google Play Store.
The first update to AusRainAR is now available. The update includes some minor enhancements for better tablet compatibility, along with improved GL shaders to address the issue of missing overlays on some devices.
AusRainAR is available now from the Google Play Store. Head on over to the About page if you’d like to learn more.

Yesterday reached a top of 35°C in my home town of Adelaide, South Australia – but the Bureau of Meteorology forecast a cool change and rain in the early evening, presenting an ideal opportunity to show what AusRainAR looks like when a cold front moves in. I’ve included an image from the Bureau of Meteorology taken at the same time showing the rain moving in, and marked the approximate location where the images where taken.
