RainAware Weather Timer - Control Your Weather! App revisa

Great App

Latest upgrade was great


Average accuracy. Radar pretty decent though. Seems hit or miss.

Site won’t let me repost a problem- Recaptcha isn’t working

So far it has rained 3 times this week and my handy dandy new app has said its dry at my address every time.


This app doesn’t function properly. Rain times are off and doesn’t have the features that Dark Sky has. Delete!

No good...do not waste time.

This app was good, once upon a time. Tonight, projected no rain. Twenty minutes later, huge thunder storm and hail. Checked middle of storm, projected rain for 3-hours. What’s the point.

Terrible App

As I sit in my sun room watching the rain pellets bounce off the lake behind my house I opened the app and it said rain starting in 1 hour 40 minutes. This is routine and I only look at the app to see how wrong it is. The sad part is you have to pay for the app, what a rip off.

Most useful short term forecast

Excellent,works very well for you and radar is easy to use as it shows the storm direction very fast.


This app is accurate and gives me the heads up before I go out of the house. The only thing is that it has a hard time predicting the rain/snow too far ahead because the weather can change so quickly but not much you can do about that.

You have better accuracy just guessing

Used the app in an downpour and it reported dry for next 3 hours.

Accurate when it actually works.

But lately it rarely gives any data at all. Fails to connect or just spins forever. Badly needs an update.


One of the best weather apps out there. The 3hr rain forecast is super accurate...bordering on magical. Highly recommended.

Waste of Time

It worked at first, but very inaccurate now

Highly inaccurate for my area

Here on the Oregon coast, where it’s often rainy, this app almost always says the conditions are “dry.” Very poor performance and unreliable.

Dead app, no longer supported

This app hasn’t been updated in over a year and developers never respond so no chance of bugs being fixed. A waste of $4.99, buyer beware!

Rarely accurate

This app is not worth the money. My free weather apps are more accurate. Many times it will show dry conditions but say light rain. Get the weather channel app, it’s free and much more accurate.

Stopped working

This app has not been updated in a year and no longer works for me.

Rainaware keeps me aware of rain

I downloaded this one night camping as a storm had rolled in. It was a lifesaver then✌️and I use it all the time now.


Great app. I use it all the time.

Good, but not great.

Rain Aware is pretty good about rain times, but still is off a bit. Dark Sky is a bit better. Fix the forecast timing and it's 5 stars.

50% Maybe

Reno where is about 50% accurate. MAYBE!!!! At one minute it says it's going to quit raining in one hour and then the next 15 minutes it says it's gonna quit raining in hour and a half, then two hours, etc. etc.it's not a very accurate app. I'm looking for another one.

Great App

Great App, have given me very accurate forecasting. I check it before and during my rides.

Really Good!

One of the best yet.

J Mays

A wonderful App, accurate

Works fine

I like the interface better then Dark Sky, however for $5 I would expect notifications and widgets to be programmed in. Notifications are a basic function that baffles me why it's not there. Get me those and I'll up the stars. Hopefully that's on the agenda.

Best Rain app there is

I have never paid more than $1.99 for an app before this one. This is definitely worth $4.99. It was recommended by Susan Waldman, a NY Yankees radio broadcaster. We were in the car on the way to a game and it was pouring. She announced it was going to stop in 36 minutes, and lo and behold, it stopped when she said it would. I have used it several times since then, and it never let me down. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Doesn't Work in Florida

I guess our weather is just too unpredictable. I can hear thunder, look outside and see it raining. Unfortunately, the app doesn't know that. And vice versa. It will tell me that it's going to rain in 5 minutes and nothing. For hours. And then it won't know that it's going to rain again when it finally does rain.

Best Weather App Ever

Love this App easy to us and very accurate


Excellent app, up to the point , I recommend It is up to you to get wet.

Great App!

Great App, use this all the time and it is very accurate.

Lost accuracy suddenly

I've had this app for months and think it is great. Have even convinced others to buy it. But - over the last week or 2 it has suddenly become terribly inaccurate. It now shows that's it's raining even in dry heat with no clouds around, or it fails to predict any rain even as it starts. Crazy. Rain Aware needs to check their server and forecasting

Rain Aware

Great app; accurate.

Very accurate

Not only is the rain forecast accurate, the graphics also are an added enhancement. A great app to let you know what is going on.


My new go-to app for weather. It's specificity is unbeatable.

Hasn't been correct since downloaded

Example: checked RainAware on 1st tee, because clouds appeared in distance, showed no probability of rain (Dry). By 5th hole (hour later) pouring rain, lightning in distance, horn was sounded. Really, checked RainAware - Dry. Really? Coordinates shown in app are correct. What gives? RainAware has been this inaccurate since downloading. It can even warn of rain when it's actually raining. All positive reviews must be that it very accurate regarding the fact that is dry, when it actually is dry. As far as rain predicting - a joke. At least sits a humorous conversation piece while getting soaked (or maybe it was imagination that I was getting rained on) Would give zero stars if possible

Great app

Really accurate. I work outside and I can use the app to predict within a couple of hours as to when it's going to rain. Also I can plan when to hold and fish.

Fun and (mostly) Accurate

I use this for estimating time available to mow the lawn/cookout before rain arrives. Has worked relatively well. Nice design.

Great app

Works great. Even while traveling in the car.

So far, Rain Aware not aware at all.

The only time the app has been accurate in a week of rain is when it's actually raining. The 3 hour prediction has been useless. Would like a refund. I live in New Orleans, I need accurate information.

I have it a shot but not accurate

Like any other weather app

Not As Great As I Hoped

When it's raining on me is says it's raining on me. Sweet. Seriously when it predicts start and stop times of rain it's seldom close. Not worth $5.

Quick and Accurate

This app is easy to use and very helpful. I have recommended it to several friends.


When this app tells you it is going to rain in five minutes you better have an umbrella. One of my favorite weather apps...

Great app

I'm amazed at its accuracy. It's become indispensable very quickly.

Needs Alerts

Great app, just wish you could get an audio alert when rain got close or a certain distance away. Aside from that it's pretty reliable.

Very inaccurate and confusing

I have found this app to be inaccurate. I wish I would have found this out before I paid $5 for it. One star because I couldn't give it zero stars.

The best rain app I have ever seen

I have tried many weather apps throughout the years which did work but this year has been a nightmare. Every app I downloaded was incorrect with the rain and I mean way off the mark. I bragged about RainAware to my husband who has to have accurate weather forecast for his line of work and he was even amazed. I now have my friends downloading this app. As you can see I love it.

Golfer' Delight!

I use this app to find a window to sneak out and play a few holes at my club. It seems to be quite accurate so far. Highly recommended!


I saw this reviewed on the Today show today and immediately downloaded it. I didn't think it was supposed to rain today but looking at the app I saw it was supposed to rain NOW. About 30 seconds later it began to pour.

A weather junkie says this is the one!

I have practically every weather app. This is far and away the best go to app for today's weather forecast. What matters most is that it's easy to use, gives the best clear information on the startup screen, it's fast, and it's accurate. There are plenty of options to entertain weather junkies like me, but it's so easy to use that literally anyone can predict the days rainfall without looking at a map. I'll continue to use other apps for certain things, but this will always be my will-it-rain app.

One of my favorite apps

That being said, I would really give this 4 1/2 stars if I could. Too frequent timeouts when trying to connect. Other than that, it's really phenomenal. Great for timing when to walk the dog!


Well done, accurate. Free.
