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!

WARNING: Selling your data

While this app is otherwise great and has a small but robust feature set, the latest update is terrible in terms of privacy. This app collects as much information as it can and distributes it to 40+ "vendors" serving only them. None of your data is used to better your experience, the quality of the report, or anything meaningful other than to track which ads you tap on, track your exact location, and many others. Please be mindful and either delete the app, or remove every single consent.
