Weather lifesaver

As a mom in Florida, juggling schedules is tough, especially with our unpredictable weather. That's where Rainviewer has been a lifesaver. Its rain notifications are spot-on, giving m a heads-up before those sudden downpours hit. Whether it's planning a park day or a school run, feel more prepared. The app is super user-friendly - even in the middle of hectic mornings, I can quickly check it. The real-time radar is a bonus, especially for explaining to my curious kids why we might need to switch plans. Overall, RainViewer help me making my life a bit easier. I absolutely recommend it to any parent dealing with weather quirks!

Ads are overwhelmingly

I understand the need and use for ads in applications that are free. However, this application takes it to an all new level. I have never in my life, viewed a radar and been interrupted in the middle of watching a radar animation to have an ad pop-up what's worse is they use the kind of ads used by other applications, like words with friends that make you watch a video.

this shows the immaturity of the marketing and development people involved with this app who think that the more ads they throw at you the more it'll motivate you to purchase the ad free version. Problem is the opposite is true better just to leave the ads out altogether, and have the merits of premium featureswarrant and encourage someone to upgrade. This is no better than Clickbait articles that are full of advertisements and pop-ups. There are too many excellent weather applications available today. Maybe they should take some time and learn from those apps.

Hi. Thanks a lot for trying our app. It's a shame to hear you're not satisfied with our free app version. It is true that ad blocks are implemented there. Our marketing team frequently analyzes ad behavior trying to make it less annoying yet effective, though. Probably you'll find it useful to try our premium version someday. We have several promo campaigns with discounted prices throughout the year (please follow our social media for announcements). Respectfully

The most accurate weather.

I was a dark sky user for years, and when it was bought by apple I was hopefully their weather app would be as good as the original. It wasn’t. I tried out roughly 7 different weather apps comparing them to the actual weather outside and this has been the single most accurate app I have used down to the minute. Every other app but this one failed to change its predictions and would tell me it was raining when it clearly was not. This should be everyone’s default for weather.

What a pleasure to receive positive comments from you, thanks! Our clients are real superstars for us and we work hard to improve the RainViewer each day making it even better 🤍
