Customer Reviews

  • Good apps

    by Zhills weatherman

    I use the app in the field to record rainfall. It works grate for that and I can email the amounts to others. The only thing it needs is a way to back it up and transfer the data to another device with the app installed.

  • Sugar beet farmer

    by Northern MN farmer

    We get approximately 22 inches of moisture per year so every hundredth of an inch is important. I have been recording the rainfall on paper for many years. How come you can enter amounts in hundredths but totals are set to tenths of an inch? Also the charts are useless unless you live in the tropics. I like the app but would like these improvements

  • Grower/Farmer 30+ years

    by George the Grower

    This app has great potential but needs improvement. Range of graph should be adjustable, should be noted that data is from the previous 24 hours, should have more than 1 location, with ability to overlay graphs and compare rainfall with crop yields, fertility levels, ect. I have more ideas if contacted.

  • Should be better

    by Alfhildeik

    Considering that it is the only rain app available there is much room for improvement. Set date for morning after, change range of graph etc.

    Great simple app. Love it

  • Rainfall App

    by Tom in Florida

    Well worth the money for me. Instead of writing down my own rainfall readings they can now be recorded on this app. Rainfall amounts are totaled and available for historical reference. The app does exactly what the developers say it will do. It is ridiculous for anyone to give this a rating of less than 3 stars, but the ones that did most likely can't read.


    by LMarr

    As a storm spotter, NOAA has given me a rain guage and expects phone-in reports when our weather gets really nasty. I forget to write down what I saw when I empty the rain guage. This is perfect. Since I carry my iPod with me I can go to my rain guage several times and not have to fire up my computer to enter the readings. It is very good when I am at the harbor (fishing town on the ocean) or even inland. I can record the weather as I see it instead of trying to remember when I get home. I would have had the app a long time ago if I had thought of searching for one.

  • Great

    by IDK 2

    I have been tracking rain fall for years on paper and I believe this will make reviewing much better in the future.

  • Great tool

    by Doppler Don

    I've been tracking rainfall for sometime now and this app just makes it easier to track and access the information.

  • Good

    by JackCar

    I take local weather bureau info and input it. Why not tie it in automatically? It is important to see trends and compare those trends with same time in previous years.

  • :)

    by ChickyRenee

    Great app.

  • Very nice

    by rc105

    Great app. Would like to see yearly total also.

  • Love it

    by gak75

    This is the app I have been looking for. It does exactly what it says - it tracks the rainfall amounts you input. Please please please make this app for iPad.

  • Does the job. Needs an small but very helpful feature

    by Bhky

    After my yard died last year, I was determined to water my lawn this year. I have a rain gauge that tells me if it has rained enough to forgo watering, but does not tell me the rain by week. Your yard needs around "1.5 inches of water a week to stay healthy. This app helps me log the rain by day. I would really like it if on the week report it could give me the total by week. Small effort change, but a big help! That would be worth another star. As for those who thought this app would somehow know how much it rained at Their house....... Interesting.

  • Not bad

    by Rockdales

    People are complaining about it doesn't tell u how much rain there is,u have to put it in ur self. That's what it's about. Stop being lazy already. This app is not bad!

  • Good tool

    by Cwarizona

    Thanks for adding hundredths of an inch. Here in Arizona, every drop counts!

  • Great

    by Byuself

    The app is really great now. No longer crashes when going to history, nor is it showing the same reading all the time. The only thing left I can think of would be to add the ability to total rainfall over a period of time. It could be a running total for the month, year. Thanks for the previous repairs and additions.

  • Nice, but could use a few other things

    by RedwoodRaven

    It totals each month separately, but I would also like to total the entire season to date. The main thing that Raintracker needs is to be able to enter rainfall in one-hundredths of an inch. The ten inch button is sort of useless. Who gets 10 inches in a day on a regular basis?

  • Rain Tracker review

    by Farmer222

    Good program. Would like to be able to track rain at several locations! :)

  • Good

    by Buzzlitonian

    Neat little program. I like it. Does not record rainfalls less than .1 I would like to see that just to let me know if there was any rain at all. All week we had rain but totals were less than .1 for each day. So it looks as if there was no rain for those days and still shows zero for the month when i know it did rain! Using the program fir time as well to let me know if i should start to water plants or foundation if gone past 3 weeks with no rain.

  • No such thing as zero stars

    by Jta.austex

    All I want is an app that gives me access to NOAA precip records. How hard is that? This thing is just a glorified notebook. If I know how much rain fell, why do I need you?

  • Waste

    by Will Bill 7

    I thought it was going to tell me how much rain had fallen. A total waste of money. Fail!

  • User

    by Budman1999

    I could have done this with a notepad. If you want something to tell you what rainfall has been, this is not the app for you.

  • What a ripoff

    by Dugger1212

    This is the most wasteful app ever. They want 99 cents for us recording water in a notepad not to mention it crashes on the new iOS. It does not even work with Twitter either. Save your money and don't buy it.

  • Rip off

    by Cook3943

    I already have a notepad. There is no value to having this app. I want a refund!

  • raintracker

    by bjdcpa

    It is just a note pad. Not tied to any database. I already deleted it! Where can I get a refund?

  • Always read reviews!!

    by Robwun

    I also thought weather service data would be utilized NOT that I'd be entering it myself every day. Save your money if you're not truly committed.

  • Terrible

    by Goble 30

    This is simply to keep track of your own notes. I need a rain tracker that tells me the amount of rain we got, not how much I put into it.

  • Upgrade

    by Hank Massey

    Please upgrade app so it does this automatically.


    by DWSilver

    I expected that this app used standard weather info available on line to track rainfall history. It is totally useless. You have to enter everything yourself. It doesn't do a thing. What a waste of a dollar. My fault for not reading the reviews. I want my dollar back! Doesn't even deserve the one star I had to give it.

  • Must enter own rainfall

    by Unhappy925

    This app is not what I expected. You have to enter your own rainfall. The reason I wanted an app was to tell me the amount of rainfall.

  • Deleted immediatley

    by Ilovegreatapps

    Worst app, wish i could get a refund. I would give it zero stars if possible.

  • Misleading.

    by Hepburngal

    You have to enter your own rain info. It does not find the info for you. Useless.

  • Mosshappyness

    by Nutting up!!

    Have notified company previously with no success in fixing. A date is added to history every day app is opened. That day with a "0" entry is being used to figure the rainfall average so that number is useless. There should not be data added to the history just because the app is opened.

  • Rip OFF

    by DonShreve

    This DOES NOT do what it advertises. It shows it has never rained here. In fact, it doesn't even know your location. All it does is let you make up your own numbers & punch them in. I can say it rained here 71" today, scroll to another date, enter that, then it will show a chart of whatever you've entered. RIP OFF. A lie.

  • Do not buy this app!!!

    by Neatthing

    I've never wrote an app review before but this one made me mad enough to submit one. It's basically some diary that you can add rain info you get from a real weather app. This one provides no weather information at all.

  • How lame can this get? Worthless!

    by Mike21345

    It doesnt register how much rain fell each day- you HAVE to enter this every day. This is nothing more than a cheesy misleading graphing app that is just lame, lame, lame. At least weatherbug lists this in real time and adds each month accumulation. Sheez, what a huge ripoff.

  • Gives NO rainfall information- YOU ENTER INFO

    by Rods1008

    Gives NO rainfall information- YOU ENTER INFO. This would be useful for tracking a rain gauge at your home... otherwise move on to other weather APPS.

  • Junk app don't buy

    by Junk. App don't buy

    I am not happy with app I though it would tell me how much rain I have in my zip code not me telling it how much we are having ....I Just gave you a buck to found that out !!! Easy way to make a dollar.

  • Not what you thinking

    by Acetow

    This app does not tell how much rainfall their was just helps you keep track of rainfall you enter. Cost me a dollar to learn that!

  • Worse App on Itunes

    by Birdognews

    I expected an app called Raintracker would track rainfall by accessing area rain records. It is far from that, YOU personally need to ENTER the daily rainfall... What do I need the Iphone App for? Don't waste your 99c

  • Good app

    by GP17

    Better if it automatically added local totals that could be edited. Also, if it would work for snow, ice, sleet, etc

  • Rainfall on the mountain

    by goblic

    Rainfall on the mountain is much different than in the desert just a few miles away where the airport is located and official rainfall totals are logged. Great app! I would like the edit features to be easier to acces with the twirly number wheels instead of screen taps. Would also like to have weekly, monthly, and yearly totals available. Would also like the app to convert the totals back & forth from metric to imperial.

  • Not worth it

    by Jerryc41

    I just assumed that this would tell me how much rain we had. I didn't think I had to tell it.

  • Not worth $2

    by Gweedough

    Was hoping for something to help me know when to irrigate. This does not download rainfall for your zip code... You have to enter everything yourself... Lame.

  • Raintracker

    by Suspinz

    Interesting app and seems to have good potential. It would be more useful if it would allow for correction of user error, and if it allowed for measurement down to hundredths of an inch. I like the charting facility.
