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

If your device did not include Google Maps and you have installed it in a non-intended way, the app might not work. Please use instead Rain Alarm OSM, which does not require Google Maps.

Motorcycle Rider Best rain app I've ever seen. Is very accurate to within minutes. This app does what the weather channel app was supposed to but didn't . I wish I could give it more stars.

Notifications work great Accurate notifications, even telling you how near and large. The animated map of weather systems is cool too. Perfect tool for us Californians with new water restrictions or anyone that wants to irrigate responsibly. Big thanks to the developer.
