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.

- Customizable alarm conditions and notifiers (notification, LED, sounds, speech output, vibration patterns)

This has always been a great app but... Is there any reason that other data such as lightning strike data cannot be added as a map layer? Lightning data is available publicly so can be integrated. REPLY TO DEV: No worries just an idea I had, no charge for ideas ;)
