Convenient but could use some UI fixes
It’s much more convenient having an app for reporting rather than having to log into a desktop. I appreciate the font color fix. A few other usability improvements that I would love to see: — Add functionality for severe weather reports on the app. — the “additional notes” should be a comment field rather than a single line, so you can see what you’re typing. —after inputting observation data, if you go to the additional information page and then come back, the observation data is deleted. I’ve also noticed this happening previously on the notes side as well, but it looks like that may have been fixed.

Can’t change time; no link to significant weather report?
New observer here. I see from previous reviews that my issue is not new. The app takes me to the current time I want to enter, but when clicking “done,” nothing is changed. Also unless I am missing it, there is no quick way to get to the significant weather report form. However there is a link to the website to do both of these things; just takes longer.

Last update ruined the graphics (fixed) now input borked
A graphics glitch that rendered the app useless was fixed within days. Well done. It does what it’s supposed to - send station data to the servers. There are still minor improvements that could be made such as make “0” the default entry for amount. Don’t they test this app before releasing? The glitches are awful and obvious.

On the iPad, when I enter a precip total then go to details to enter snow data, my precip value disappears when I go back to the first screen. Also, can’t edit input on the iPad, have to do that via the web interface. This is all new since the most recent update. It’s certainly handy to have this app so I enter data in a timely manner, but bugs need to be addressed.

Works pretty well to report precip
In general, no complaints with this app. However, recently I started having an issue on my iPad (latest iOS) where the “Submit” button covers up the precip amount. So I have to guess that I’m inputting the correct amount because I can’t actually see it after I type in the numbers.

Easy to use and no ads!
Love this app! It is so convenient to enter daily weather data without having to login to a computer or web browser. The app provides just the things you need, in a simple user-friendly format. Thanks!

Odd color choices
Not sure why this isn’t a simple black and white UI and inverse for dark mode, but that would be nice. Convenient for quickly entering the daily measurement, but would be nice if it was easier for my homeschoolers to read. Light gray on sky blue for the bottom tabs is horrible on the eyes.

Terrible color choices
The new version uses shades of blue for the main buttons at the bottom of the screen with a medium blue as the background color. The result makes it hard to read the button labels or even see which one is selected. Please change this.

Dark Mode Issues (fixed)
Latest release form coloring and history view have issues when phone is in dark mode. The last version did not have this issue. This was fixed with a new release or phone reboot. Rating increase to 4 star.

One request
One request for the app to make it just a little easier. There is a toggle for a Trace, how about a toggle for No Precipitation. I love being a contributor and having access to all the data. It is fascinating to compare my data to other contributors in my area and around the state.

In order to log totals I find you need to change the time of observation otherwise the preset time won’t allow the app to log the observation. Also very recently there’s an issue with logging into the app. It claims the password/username are invalid.

Broken font color
Come on, we can no longer see the history data because the font color is the same as the background color. Please fix it!

Does what it is supposed to
This app does what it is supposed to do, but it could use an interface improvement and more features (like available on the web) would be great.

Update deletes input
The latest update deletes precip data from data entry field when navigating to the details page. Must enter details first then go back to the main precip entry page and enter precip.

Ok, but could be better
All the fields where you can add data should be on one screen, nothing to go to another screen. Then, when you entered the data, there is no verification of what was submitted. Therefore, I have to check on the CoCoRaHS. which takes more time than if I just entered it there in the first place.

Other Dates
The ability to enter data for days other than the current date has been removed with the latest update. A MAJOR inconvenience! So if I have data from yesterday I can no longer enter it so data is lost! What a shame! Can’t enter dates for multi-day reports either!

Must create account to use… can’t create account… super rudimentary anyway, which is fine, don’t need anything fancy but would still like to be able to use. To the developer: why bother?

Please fix!!
After I enter my data the screen drops half way down the screen so I can not submit it (use the submit button) . This has been occurring over a month. I have reloaded the app and it still happens. I am using my iPad to submit entries

Can’t change time on latest version
When I attempt to change log time I get the time in the middle of the screen and no way to change time. What am I missing?

Good, Could Be Great
I love being able to enter my daily reports from the app. It's fast and easy. However, it needs additional functionality to realize its potential. This would include being able to edit daily reports, enter multiple-day reports, and submit hail and significant weather reports too. Adding these additional features would make it a 5 star.

Get it right the first time.
Finally, this long-awaited app is available! I will be reporting much more often now being I don't have to go back inside to my computer to send a report. I encountered a problem on my first time using it, though. If you make a mistake and want to revise your earlier report, you can't! You must use the Cocorahs web site to edit previously submitted data. So make sure you do it right the first time!

Needs a little work
Nice start for an observer app, but lacks the ability to enter a trace amount and past data is limited to precip amount only

Need to add a Few things
I enjoy this app, it's really handy when you have to report in the morning. A thing that needs to be improved is that this app is only compatible with the Daily Precipitation report. The Significant Weather, the Multi-Day, Monthly Zeros, and Drought reports still need to be added. So far so good!

This app is so much more convenient than the web version. The history check keeps me posted when I get side tracked. Adding a way for me to view other local postings would be cool.

This is exactly what someone needed to build, and it is well done. I’m happy to see that it allows the full range of reporting and not just 24 hour rainfall. Thank you Mr. Woodruff!

Some times it has issues accepting the time and date values that are put in. Changing the date resets the measurements. Makes for some aggravation.
