To further enhance personalized weather services, the Observatory launched on a trial basis the "Location-based Rain Forecast" on the mobile app "MyObservatory". Users can now easily get hold of the rainfall forecast in the coming two hours specific to their actual or selected location. The service is made available on the "MyObservatory" on both the iPhone/iPad platform (version 4.0) and the Android platform (version 3.0). 

The trial "Location-based Rain Forecast" is generated automatically by computer without any manual adjustment. The main purpose is to enable users to receive as soon as possible the latest rainfall prediction for their reference, so as to help them better arrange their daily activities or plan outdoor activities. 

The personalized weather service "MyObservatory" has been well-received since its launch in March 2010. The total number of page views has exceeded 6.4 billion by August 2012.
