--- 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 1.9.3
- Modified code to increase detection of light rain (less misses by default).
- Added Dewpoint and Pressure to Current Observation. Auto animates or tap to advance.
- Added Loading progress bar for radar and satellite loops.
- Various bug fixes, stability improvements, and optimizations.
Thank you to all who have provided feedback. We have a button for that, please use!
Note: Alerts are coming, thanks for being patient.
Very nice app
This app is truly positive addition to all the other weather apps available. The proximity indicator is one of my more likable features. The black background on map view is the perfect contrast to the approaching storm system. I particularly recognize the benefit to the longitude and latitude identification as it gives a more defined location to your property. Thank very much for this app which is very reasonably priced for the effort involved.
I'm willing to look past the design as I like that the accuracy is fairly good, even when looking out 2hrs (it's not bad, just not too impressed by the app design).
+ radar images load quickly and are usually only a minute old
+ accurate for me here in the Minneapolis area
+ you can adjust the clutter (and other things) filtering to better fit your area
+ I can see the rain prediction by time and intensity via a couple display options.
- needs some improvements in UI layout
- would like to be able to see a wider area in radar
- could use more weather details like pressure, etc.
- closest weather station to my home is 19 miles (doesn't seem to affect anything other than current conditions being a bit off).
Very Useful and Practical
This is a very accurate app. Amazingly so! We can find out when rain will start..about how intense the weather activity will be and how long it will last. So far this app has been more on the spot than the local TV weather people. It is one of the best you can have on a smartphone.
