Introducing RainDrop - Your Virtual Rain Gauge!

Ever looked outside and wondered, “How much rain did we get?” Whether you’re a farmer like my dad, who needs to know how much rain his fields have received, or someone who takes care of a garden, lawn, or works outside, knowing about rain is super important. My dad needed to know how much rain fell on his crops. He looked everywhere but couldn’t find the right answer. So, I made RainDrop just for him - and now, for you too!

RainDrop is like magic and it is the best app for rainfall totals. It tells you exactly how much rain fell right where you need to know. No more guessing or wondering. It’s like having your very own rain gauge that fits in your pocket. Whether it’s your backyard, your farm, or somewhere else, RainDrop knows.

With RainDrop, you can:

- Put a virtual rain gauge anywhere on a map to see how much rain fell there.

- Determine if location is muddy based on how much it rained

- See if it rained more or less than usual. Are you above or below the average? RainDrop tells you.

- Check on rain from yesterday, last week, or even last year. RainDrop remembers all that for you.

- Share with friends how much rain you got.

Right now, it only knows about rain in the United States (but not in Hawaii, Alaska, or US territories...yet!).

At RainDrop, it's just Rylan and Sai, a tiny team of two, working constantly to make RainDrop even better for you. We care deeply about ensuring it meets everyone's needs and even offer a chat feature so you can communicate with us directly.

We made RainDrop simple so anyone can use it. You don’t need to be a tech wizard. If my non tech-savvy dad can use it, you can too!

What’s even cooler? RainDrop has a free version that’s really handy. But if you want a bunch of virtual rain gauges, you can get RainDrop Pro.

So, whether you need to keep tabs on the rain for your business, check the conditions of the golf course, or use it for hundreds of other use cases, RainDrop has got you covered. Download it now and stay informed about the rainfall without even needing to be there!

Please note that the rainfall estimates may not align precisely with your rain gauge readings. Predicting rainfall in a highly localized area is challenging. The app provides estimates within a 1km x 1km radius of your pinned location, utilizing radar, satellite, and various rain gauges scattered across the United States. Also be aware that during windy rainstorms, your physical rain gauge readings may differ from these estimates. However, in conditions where rain falls vertically, the app's estimates tend to closely match your rain gauge.

Love it, haven’t had it on my phone but maybe couple weeks, it’s right on with my rain gauge on the deck, when was researching for a good app this one got high reviews, they were right far as I’ve seen so far, and I don’t think I will be surprised. I don’t wish to do the weather station thing, but I wanted a good rain app. I like high tech stuff and premium tech devices. This app pleases me I’m already showing friends etc. and bragging on it.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for bragging about it! 😆 I am glad you are enjoying it!

Raindrop works! Easy and convenient.

I’m always looking for a way to get local precipitation amounts, and Raindrops is the app I turn to first. Once I identify my location, I can get total rainfall over the last 24 hours with one button push—opening the app. With a few other taps, I can see total precip over 72 hours, MTD, or YTD, and it is quite accurate when compared to other weather stations near me. The elegance is in its simplicity.

Developer Response ,

Good to hear! Simplicity is beauty.

Best app for local rainfall

The app is simple..and accurate .. gives me rainfall in my exact location. Other sites will give you data from a local ( or almost local) airport that often is not accurate for your location..

Developer Response ,

Exactly! Glad it could help.
