App Description

Stop wondering and start KNOWING. Time rain and storms to your exact location with RainAware. RainAware updates quickly to stay ahead of changing weather. We create a customized forecast just for you. Skies look dark? Doesn't always mean rain. Don't be surprised again, know for sure! ►Why settle for this: "There is a 50% chance of rain today" ►When you can have this: "It's going to rain in 1 hour 30 minutes" Stay dry when running errands, at the golf course, at the lake, or working outdoors. The uses are endless. --- FEATURES --- ► Rain Clock counts down the minutes until precipitation arrives at your location. Rotates counterclockwise. When colors hit the top, it's raining! Estimates up to three hours out. ► Updates every minute to stay ahead of even the most changeable, crazy weather. ► See precipitation chances and intensity up to 12 hours away based on RainAware model simulation. ► View radar imagery with your location highlighted. Play animation to verify it's coming. ► See clouds forming or dissipating with high-res visible satellite imagery. Works at night too! ► Background weather images change depending on the threat. Lightning, rain, snow, ice. ► Live rain times keep you ahead of Airport delays and ballgame cancellations. ► Easily share your rain time on social media and warn friends and family of impending storms. ► Answers the question: When is it going to rain? ► Customize your precipitation experience with advanced settings. ► 5-Star Support: Let us help you get the most out of your app by providing feedback via the settings menu. --- EXPECTATIONS --- When it comes to weather forecasting, you can't be perfect. But you CAN be the best. While RainAware does an excellent job most of the time, unpredictable situations do occur. Think of RainAware as a tool. With time, you will gain proficiency. Make sure to use the advanced settings, they are there to maximize performance in your area. --- SERVICE AREA --- View the RainAware service coverage map before purchasing: http://www.rainaware.com/rainaware_coverage_map.gif --- NOTES --- RainAware is ONLY for use in the continental United States. RainAware relies on National Weather Service radars and may not work properly if a radar is down or if the beam is blocked by mountains. In rare instances, ground clutter may result in a false positive for rain at your location. Extremely light sprinkles or drizzle may not always be detected. Precipitation times will change as RainAware adjusts to rapidly changing weather conditions. Precipitation can form suddenly or dissipate at any time. Works best when precipitation is moving. Times are estimates and have inherent error. Advanced settings are there to mitigate these issues.

    Rain Aware is pretty good about rain times, but still is off a bit. Dark Sky is a bit better. Fix the forecast timing and it's 5 stars.
  • 50% Maybe

    Reno where is about 50% accurate. MAYBE!!!! At one minute it says it's going to quit raining in one hour and then the next 15 minutes it says it's gonna quit raining in hour and a half, then two hours, etc. etc.it's not a very accurate app. I'm looking for another one.

    I like the interface better then Dark Sky, however for $5 I would expect notifications and widgets to be programmed in. Notifications are a basic function that baffles me why it's not there. Get me those and I'll up the stars. Hopefully that's on the agenda.
  • Best Rain app there is

    I have never paid more than $1.99 for an app before this one. This is definitely worth $4.99. It was recommended by Susan Waldman, a NY Yankees radio broadcaster. We were in the car on the way to a game and it was pouring. She announced it was going to stop in 36 minutes, and lo and behold, it stopped when she said it would. I have used it several times since then, and it never let me down. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    I guess our weather is just too unpredictable. I can hear thunder, look outside and see it raining. Unfortunately, the app doesn't know that. And vice versa. It will tell me that it's going to rain in 5 minutes and nothing. For hours. And then it won't know that it's going to rain again when it finally does rain.
  • Best Weather App Ever
