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.

Good. Accurate. Has a tendency to force close occasionally. If this problem could be fixed, five stars.

Rain alarm As a painter it was a great app for free till they muted the sound on alarm it should be renamed. Rain map because without. Buying the full version it is virtually worthless other than a map i can bookmark on web browser, i used yours because it was included but sadly no more, Ps lots of painters out there food for thought, and one might be painting your home,

Awesome Brilliant app. Combine this with Met office/BBC apps and you need never get wet again. I love it.
