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 warns you when rain is currently nearing. Instead of forecasting it warns using almost real-time data, which is more precise than any forecast can be. It is an useful assistant for everything outdoors like cycling, biking, hiking, gardening, BBQ, picnics, walking the dogs, home improvement and more.

Features:
- warns for any type of precipitation, may it be rain, snow or hail
- warning as notification, vibration and/or sound
- precipitation map view
- widgets in different sizes and themes

Used to be a Good app The map doesn't zoom in close enough. It used to zoom right into an area. Not any more. And yes I know where the zoom buttons are. Now it sucks.

Stay dry! Been using this software for a long time now and it remains one of my most used apps. Very useful before going out for my lunchtime walks at work and when away on holiday which means I hardly ever get caught out by the weather!

Rain alarm pro Love this app. I love the fact that if I think it may rain, and check my widget, it will say (no rain). There I have it. No rain. Get this app. Oh, and I forgot to mention how accurate it is. The one must habe for my phone and tablet.😎

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. After several updates when you think it cannot get any better, then they come up with the 5 mins for the radar update!! I can now set it to sync with the 15min interval. I do regret however, that I cannot rate it higher then 5 stars!! Well done to the developers!! :-)
