Rain Alarm Pro

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.

Can time to the minute when to put my waterproof on!!! Brilliant app. Just one comment, unless I have missed it there is no way to share settings which would be good. I have a phone and tablet and setting up my alarms twice was a bit of a pain. A back up and restore option would be a good way to get round that. 😊
