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.

Love it, wanna buy it... But ain't payin' $4+ for it. Price drop or occasional sale prices will get 5 stars and multi purchases. Update, I now have many people including myself who will buy now for $2 or less.
