Rain Alarm Pro

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

Low sensitivity I bought the pro version, hoping I would be able to tweak the sensitivity, but I just can't figure out how to adjust it. Either it works and it's not sensitive, or you tweak it, and it doesn't work at all. I think it needs a derivative based trending algorithm that would allow the user to adjust the percent change of the conditions before an alarm would go off. Maybe use centroids to establish the moving "center" of a nearby system?

Update: Vielen Dank Michael schließlich heute 11/Aug/2015 zurückgekehrt, um die Radar in Mexiko-Stadt zu betreiben. Diese Anwendung hat mich viele Male gerettet, nass zu werden. Update: Gracias Michael, hoy 11/Ago/2015 al fin regresó a funcionar el radar en Ciudad de México. Esta App me ha salvado muchas veces de mojarme. OLD: para avisarle que hace como 2 semanas que no muestra nunca las lluvias del D.F. Este jueves (16 julio 2015) 21:30hrs me mojé pero hoy sábado (18 julio 2015) 16:15hrs me hiper mojé y en el mapa solo salen nubes en la costa del país. Podrías por favor revisar y avisarnos que esta pasando con la App y los radares del D.F (Distrito federal y Estado de México). Muchas gracias de antemano.

Functional and Reliable The radar function alone is the best, quickest loading one I have found. All around, the app is smart and reliable. It takes some thought to comprehend and adjust the settings for your situation. I'm still not sure what the Update Interval does. Is it how often I get updated by it or it by the server? Hmmm.
