Ratings and Reviews
This app continues to improve. The 7 day forecast is much easier to view. I especially like that it shows the night temp separately. When other apps just show the low for a day, there is nothing that indicates the low is for the early morning or the coming night. They just show a low to happen some time in that 24 hours. This app does it better.
Location accuracy is bad - UPDATE 2 to 5 stars
I live in Florida and really wanted this program to work. It is everything I wanted, except accurate. It is a full half-mile off from my IPhone compass location, which is extremely accurate. In Florida, a half-mile is the difference between getting drenched in a thunderous downpour and working on your tan. I have been drenched twice by relying on it. If they can fix that problem. I would give it a solid four stars.
Update: After using this program for a couple years, all of my concerns about accuracy have been fixed. I doubt if you can find a better program for the essentials you need to plan around local weather changes. With family spread around the country, I can quickly zoom into their local weather as well.
The look and feel of this app is superb, in my opinion. It is clean and free of clutter, while making access to the core information instantaneous.
As to accuracy...well, its a weather forecast, folks. Any meteorologist will admit there is art as well as science in the profession. Im not sure what RainAware uses as its data source(s), but I have found it at least as accurate as NWS, Accuweather, etc. The link to radar imagery allows the user to draw their own conclusions as to the adequacy of the forecast.
RainAware fills a very specific niche, providing ultra short term predictions.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
