Rain Alarm OSM Pro

Rain Alarm OSM Pro


This variant of the app is aimed at older devices. A better choice with more background map types is "Rain Alarm Pro".

This weather app and widget are able to warn you against precipitation (like rain or snow) by an alarm. You can watch what is coming by the up-to-date radar animation. Even more convenient, the supplied widgets can help you monitor the precipitation situation without any alarms.

Useful assistant for everything outdoors like cycling, biking or hiking.

Great app..even better developer! This app is very well put together...great UI and very accurate. I had some issues with ROM compatibility and the developer was immediate with his replies and extremely helpful. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. if you spend lots of time outdoors and want to avoid getting wet.... Stop reading and start downloading!!

The best radar app. Once up and running, its easy to use and to read. I love the multi colour radar of different intensity. You can choose how often its updated too. No hassle with the forecast or other stuff like, just the radar is all I needed. Thankyou.
