Ok, now it's kinda freaking me out. How does it know my name? If I go to that link either on my PC or on my BB I see:

"Itxxx8217;s like totally the simplest weather report ever, Julie.xxx8221;

How does it do that?

Does it do the same for you? I honestly don't like that. I didn't enter my name anywhere. Just my phone number on the BB site, and just a zip code on the PC site.

Maybe I'm just paranoid.

Wait, it called me Julie, too.

How did it know she was here in my office, also?

Btw, nice find Zerog. A lot of times I leave my umbrella in the car in the morning and then when leaving work it is pouring down rain. This should be a helpful reminder.

This app looks good. Can you the OP tell me what Chance of Precipitation threshold they use to send the text?

I am hoping it is not sending texts for anything under 10%. Where I live they is a 30% chance everyday, and we haven't had rain in 2 weeks.

It would be even better if a future version would allow for a threshold to be set when you create an account, or even better allow for messages when the threshold is met for the next 3 hours.

Thanks for sharing.

I had rain today and it sent me my text 7:00 this morning. Neat little concept.
