Where has this app been all my life?
And on the other hand, the app (at least for android)
appears to be a piece of crap.
Water is structured for life.
What about a planet that's all clouds? Like Saturn or Jupiter? Does that sort of planet produce only poets and philosophers?
Their description of how cloud droplets become rain droplets is completely wrong. Any casual observer could tell you that warm (e.g. completely unfrozen) clouds produce precipitation, whereas the video's description requires ice. Even if you are just considering cold clouds, the graphic implies growth via water vapor deposition could grow rain droplets, and that's false by several orders of magnitude. Collision-coalescence is absolutely required to grow droplets large enough to produce precip. They get a few other things wrong, but this is the biggest error.
