Been using the paid version for about 2 years. Its pretty accurate with the range warnings. I work outside so this is an awesome heads up. Used on a few road trips and it helps with "forecasting" the intesity and coverage of moisture, this includes snow which helps a lot. After using it for a while, you get good at being able to tell the difference between light rain and "yeah, this picnic is a rap" My only issue is that the settings to get everything to your liking or needs are clunky.

Former Dark Sky user here trying to replicate the precipitation alert feature. I've tried a lot of apps but most rely on the Dark Sky API to provide that feature and those that didn't were just too heavyweight or awful in some way I couldn't get comfortable with. Rain Alarm though, it's exactly what I wanted. It focuses on providing the alert and does so with radar, which is the screen the app opens up to. That's great because Google Weather can provide me with all the forecasting data I need, it just lacks... radar and a precipitation alert. The configuration has a lot of variables that the user can adjust but the defaults work well right out of the box. The WearOS component (not mentioned in the description) is also pretty swank. Honestly $11 is a steal for this, since it works great, has a wonderful privacy policy, and is unobtrusive.

The developer was very responsive to my issue and quickly contacted me with a solution. The app is now working properly again. I gave it 5 stars due, in part, to the developer's desire to address my problem. I would love to see a future release include radar images which display colors for mixed precipitation (sleet/freezing rain) and snow in addition to rain.

Please note that there is an issue caused by Google, not by the app. Make sure to have all updates for Google apps installed through the Play Store and restart your device. If the problem persists, reinstall the app and it should be working again. android@rain-alarm.com
