Rain Alarm OSM

Rain Alarm OSM


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

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

Very useful for me when I travel to rural areas. I can check it before making actual move. Can the alarm be improved? Thank you.

Moto G 2013 A remarkably good app/widget which I've used for a couple of years now. Simple to use and a doddle to understand, but I'd be careful to set it up right in the first place to avoid possible problems later. One of my best android tools!
