What's new in this version (3.4.1):
* Fix for rare issues when started from widget
* Fix in ad provider
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.

The difference to "Rain Alarm OSM" is the background map, which is here Google Maps and for the other version OpenStreetMap.
The data used originates from governmental weather services. Works in the USA (including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam), Canada, Australia, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, the UK, Ireland, Germany, Norway, Iceland, the Netherlands, Spain (including the Balearic and the Canary Islands), Slovenia, Croatia.
If your device did not include Google Maps and you have installed it in a non-intended way, the app might not work. Please use instead Rain Alarm OSM, which does not require Google Maps.

Been using this for a while now, and is accurate and useful. A small problem recently following an update was quickly fixed, excellent support.
Much better with google maps.
Works perfect for rain warnings when out motorcycle riding!
@Rob did it improve? I was fixing some server setting that could have caused the problem.
Above average overall quality, below average radar detail when zoomed
@mdxyz Error downloading images. No Internet connection / try again message. I use wireless, working fine, and all other phone apps are ok.
Its a great app I am not having problems love the new map its accurate
Better app before update - map now too complex and stutters, and Adsense intrusive.
