--- NOTES ---
RainAware is for use in the continental United States. RainAware relies on National Weather Service radars and may not work properly if a radar is down or if the beam is blocked by mountains. In rare instances, ground clutter may result in a false positive for rain at your location. Extremely light sprinkles or drizzle may not always be detected. Precipitation times will change as RainAware adjusts to rapidly changing weather conditions. Precipitation can form suddenly or dissipate at any time. Works best when precipitation is moving. Times are estimates and have inherent error. Advanced settings are there to mitigate these issues.

Customer ReviewsAccurate and accessible! (5 stars)
I am totally blind and use voiceover to access my phone. To my surprised amazement this app while not fully VO friendly was and is blind usable. Of course VO can't read radar maps or the wonderful intensity and confidence graphs but even through major updates and improvements the developers have left the user the options to use the app with simplified visual effects and text displays which means the app remains functional for blind users.
Your personal weather man (5 stars)
Great app. Purchased it then set it up while in my gazebo and it predicted when the rain would arrive. Great for out door activities when you need to know when the rain will arrive and stop. It has other displays that show when and the intensity of a rain event. This app is not just for weather geeks, anyone can use. Some times radar does not always predict the path of a storm. Living in Illinois I need to be aware of severe weather and know
As Advertised (5 stars)
Had to say I was skeptical at first an app could deliver what they advertised. So I decided to take a chance an give them a try.
So I have to admit when I saw the app predict it will start raining at my location in one minute I went outside with stopwatch in hand and believe it or not it stared to rain exactly as stated.
I was blown away and honestly knew I had to leave an review that yes this app was as ADVERTISED...
