About this app

This weather app alerts you when rain is approaching. The alerts are a reliable short-term forecast based on near real-time data. This app is more precise and reliable than a traditional forecast.

Europe: UK, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Spain (including the Balearic and the Canary Islands), France, Hungary, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia, Croatia, Belarus, Ukraine

Seems nice. I wish that it was not subscription based. I'd consider paying a one time fee to unlock features. But never a subscription... Lastly, why did I uninstall this? Because of aforementioned lack of a one time purchase. I am tired of all developers feeling they need a subscription on everything. If you need the pocket change, keep the ads and just release a full application...

You not only pay for an app, but an ongoing service that keeps generating costs. Ongoing costs include server infrastructure, weather service licence costs, and manpower. A one-time payment is not sustainable over the long run for an app that provides a service. Not asking for much, the yearly sub costs about as much as good coffee every 3 months.

Great app Mike you designed this app well. I like the notifications that drop down from the top of my screen. I also like the feather figure that sits along the location dot that makes it easy to show where a storm is coming from. Your widgets are a great feature on the home screen. I'm not sure how to read them completely. I understand intensity but confused with the approximately and area reading and don't know how the = > < work. Like to hear from you Mike thanks.

Hi and thanks for your review! From the main screen of the app open the help menu (make sure the top bar is visible), then go to widgets. This will give some insights on how it works. In case of an open question, just reach out to me: android@rain-alarm.com

GREAT app. As a convertible sports car owner in the scattered rain showers of the northeast it's indispensable. It's high accuracy and detailed info have saved me many times. The alarm even gets me up out of meetings to go close the top during what weather reports erroneously said was a rainless day. Info is easy to access in-app and especially with the at-a-glance widget. It works well all the time, does not require too frequent updates, and the ads are not intrusive on the version I have. 💯❤
