• Handy widgets in different sizes and themes

The data is collected from local weather services. Supported countries:
Americas: USA (including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam), Canada, Bermuda, Mexico, El Salvador, Argentina, Brazil
Europe: UK, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Spain (including the Balearic and the Canary Islands), Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia, Croatia, Belarus, Ukraine
Asia: Taiwan, Macau, Hong Kong, Japan, Republic of Korea, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, India

At first I had the settings wrong. The developer respond quickly and explained what the issue was. Since then we've had numerous thunder storms in Kansas and the app works perfectly. It has alerted me to every approaching storm that I was not aware of even though I'm a registered Kansas storm spotter. Great app. Works flawlessly.

Please note that this is not a common issue and to investigate I will need more info. 1. Was there rain visible on the map at the time? 2. For which city in which country? 3. Go to the help menu, diagnose & contact, and send via the email icon. Add a short reminder and I can check. micha@rain-alarm.com

I used this app at work & really liked it. Most weather apps aren't very accurate in my area due to being in a valley between mountains. This app works in real time & simply does a great job at what it claims it does. I'm happy to find it again. The radar is easy to use & understand. It even has a weather forecast for upcoming days. It has a good bit of options to customize the search distance & intensity of rain that will trigger an alert. I only wish there was better widgets with a forecast.

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
