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.

Looks awesome... But neither version is picking up maps on my tablet. I will try this again when I get a new device as this really looks like a great app.

Good App But you can only use animation rates of 30min and below, because the server delivers pictures in 15min intervals. The app supports only 10 and 20 minute intervals which results in two times the same picture when playing the animation
