Rain Alarm

Rain Alarm


This weather app and widget are able to warn you against precipitation (like rain or snow) by a silent 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.

My Dogs and I Love this. This is a helpful app for dog guardians who take their dogs outside to potty. Whenever I hear the app alert, I take my two dogs outside, and we avoid them having to "pee in a down pour". We like.
