RainAware may not work well in mountainous terrain where radar beams can be blocked. Works best where terrain is relatively flat and when precipitation is moving.

† RainAware is for use in the United States, Guam and Puerto Rico only. 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.
What's New in Version 1.8.2

Bought the app last weekend and all week it's right on the money saying dry or no rain until Thursday. Then on Thursday when it's supposed to rain I get cannot retrieve forecast at this time try again later. Wasted that $4.00!

Best rain prediction/tracking app I've used
Not only is this the best rain prediction app that I've ever used but it offers something that I've never seen in any other weather app before.
First off, most weather apps will give you an hourly forecast, some will even give you a resolution of 15 minutes but thats about it. Rain aware has a resolution of 5 minutes and I have found it to be very accurate.
You might wonder what the big deal is. The big deal is that not only will it give you a chance of precipitation in 5 minute increments but it also tells you HOW SEVERE the rain will be in 5 minute increments. I've not seen that offered by any other weather service, at least not to this degree of accuracy and ease of use. It is very easy to read and understand. At a glance you instantly know how heavy the rain is likely to be and how strong that estimation is. From there you can make your best judgement, is it a good idea to go for that bike ride or should you move the BBQ indoors. I wouldn't put so much trust in any other weather app. I feel a lot more confident in my decisions if they are based on the information provided by rain aware. I even trust rain aware more than my local weather station and have found it to be more accurate. It is amazing.
Some people have given the app bad ratings because they seem to think that it is run by magic and it should never be wrong or should always be accurate to the second. This is WEATHER we are talking about. While rain aware does make "mistakes" occasionally, it is not actually a mistake. The weather did something unexpected and the actual result was not equal to the predicted result. It happens. However, it is rare. Rain aware has been as accurate as advertised almost all of the time, I use it daily in my area, in New England, which is an area known for unpredictable weather.
This summer during a 4 day period every single tv weather station was warning us of severe thunderstorms, heavy rain, microbursts, and tornadoes. Rain aware predicted very light rain and that is what we got, light rain. It was more accurate than the combined predictions of 3 local weather channels, and the two weather websites that I happened to check.
RAIN AWARE IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AND IS DEFINITELY WORTH THE MONEY.
