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.

Smoothing display I realize that the radar smoothing is integral to the functioning of the alarm, but you should look into disabling the smoothing on the display end—perhaps feeding the smoothed data to the detection/alarm part of the app and giving the user an option as to whether smoothed or unsmoothed data is displayed in the UI. Thanks for your continued development of this product!
