Think I'll quit using them....Jack county has been in a drought and it's important to me to know within .25" how much rainfall i've got on my fields and when I have to drive out to irrigate. Farm logs says .20...my rain gauge....

I guess it depends are where you are located. Farm logs has been very accurate for me. Of course none of them can be completely accurate. It can rain 1" on west side of road and .2" on the east side. I own several tracts of land, all within 3 miles of each other in Oklahoma, and it actually gives me different rain totals for some of them.

Doesn't Farmlogs give data for the past 24 hours? Your rain gauge has been collecting rain for how long?

I do daily measurements for the CoCoRaHS reporting system and use their gauges. Each ranch has its own gauge and Farm Log is way off most of the time.

Ditto here too, less the farm log. As Pitt said, measurements cant vary wildly with in a storm or front. Farmlog is probably 99% accurate where the reading was taken.

Gives me a fairly accurate read on precip. Sometime they are slow to update the app though.

Where/how do they get their information?

Some of the responses above say they get it from participants that are willing to put farm log gear on their property and allow steady internet access to update their logs. It's very accurate if you are one of the participating weather stations...but not reliable at all if you're aren't and have crops in the field. It may be useful to some but it's just cluttering up my pc.
