Drops – The Rain Alarm is an iOS app to do with one of the favourite talking points: the weather. More particularly the rain. Its sole task is to let you know when the rain is about to start, albeit with a bit of warning, in your area. Or anywhere else you’d like to know about.

Drops – The Rain Alarm can tell you at a glance exactly when it will rain up to two hours in advance. With down-to-the-minute forecasts, you’ll know exactly when the rain will start or stop, right where you're standing.

What Drops – The Rain Alarm offers you:
- Receive down-to-the-minute alerts before it starts raining at your exact location!
- An accurate precipitation forecast for the next two hours
- An interactive rainfall radar map
- Extensive 14-day weather forecast

The new Drops app works worldwide!

App works ok but accuracy is poor

On the face of it this app is really good as it shows me when it’s going to rain, what more could I want? The problem is that the data it shows is not accurate enough. It rains unexpectedly and doesn’t rain even when there is a band of rain showing on the app. I’ll still use it as a guide as is useful for that but don’t rely on it.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback! We use different calculations and if they all come with different expectations, our model then chooses the most likely scenario. As a result, reality may deviate from expectations. Sorry for the inconvenience! Mvg, Team Drops

Great Potential

This app looks like it has great potential, but at the moment it just does not offer enough locations.

Rain alarm but much much worse

I have no idea why they needed to mess with a perfectly good app.
This version is pretty much useless so I’ll be looking for others.
Poor layout and format. Rain alarm was just better in every way.

Thanks for your feedback! I will inform our developers that you do not like this as much. It is not known whether it will be changed, but it is in any case good that you indicate it. Mvg, Team Drops
