--- NOTES ---
RainAware is 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.
What's New in Version 1.9.6
- Clear extra pins on Map View by tapping the Edit button and then Clear Dropped Pins.
- Added a Go button to the Favorites list to jump directly to the Main View.
- Faster location detection when using cellular networks (sorry for the slowdown, it was iOS 9 related).
Saved Me More Times ...
This little app has saved me more times than I can remember with its push notifications, especially on days when rain wasn't even expected. To be working outside with multiple hundreds of dollars of rain sensitive tools and equipment, on a pretty clear day, with no expectation of rain for the day, to receive a push notification from this little app saying that it will start drizzling in say, 12 minutes, and raining in say 17 minutes, and you look up and around and say say, "What, are you kidding me?!?" .. well, this little app has been so accurate (plus or minus just a minute or two) that I don't even think about second guessing it anymore, I just start start hurrying to get things picked up .. Great app !! .. I have already suggested it to all my friends .. it is my first go-to app for weather!!
Greatest Rain and Snow App Ever!!!
I first tried this app when I had a dog walking gig. As most people with dog may know, lots of dogs don't like going out in the rain. Well this app has far exceeded my expectations as it has been able to give me a realtime heads up on when the rain or snow for that matter will begin and end. I read another person's comment about how it did not work for them. I would suggest they check and adjust the settings as this may be the problem as to why the inaccuracy is occurring. I have recommended this app to many.
Great - with limitations
I like this app. Is it 100% accurate? No. But exactly what weather forecast is? None. All weather forecasting is about probabilities and error. So it might say "rain ending in 30 minutes" but the rain ends in 20 minutes. Or 40 minutes. It might start raining before the app says it is - but remember Doppler radar data is often 15 minutes behind. However if you see clouds and want to know if weather is heading towards you, it works. Pair this app with your favorite Doppler radar app and you are set!
