Very ordinary. Only shows a portion of my local map. Shows a lot of warning markers where floods are happening, but you can't tell where the towns are as the map doesn't show. My husband and I had the same phone, got the app at the same time. He recently updated his phone to a S20+ and the app doesn’t work on his new phone. I noticed the app hadn't been updated since 2019. It would be very helpful if the app was working properly during the March 2021 NSW flood crisis.

Mostly interesting so far. Shame that several of my local gauging stations are reported as 'stale' with black icon, and will not load data or plots whilst the BOM Web pages show the full plot without fail. (From where I'd assume the data would be gathered). Reopening the app from an already running state seems to take longer than necessary with a lot of redrawing etc. Closing the plot chart using the button seems to be slower or less responsive than it should be. Mostly interesting otherwise.

Not brilliant, unless you want to see all the water levels (flooding or otherwise) around the state. A really annoying display when you change from reading to reading (just put the damn number up without that stupid rolling transition!). In reality I was looking for something more intelligent, like "Fires Near Me" but for floods. Need to be able to limit the displays to be able to show either waterways that have had unusually high rate increases over "X" hours, or are in flood states.
