Rain Alarm

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

Never Ride Without It I ride a motorcycle every day to and from work. Knowing what you're getting into can literally be a lifesaver. Rain Alarm warns me if dangerous wet conditions nearby and gives me the information I need to know if it will affect me.

Very useful. Well thought out with good info. And Graeme it's a weather app not a game and there's nothing Inappropriate about the ads.
