I don’t mind ads, but leave them at the bottom of screen. I’m trying to track a storm and a full page five second ad blocks out everything.
I’ve been a Rain Alarm user for a couple of years and a runner for much longer. I gotta day this is a lifesaver for someone who wants to be notified - in detail - about raining coming your way. The dev team did a fantastic job of bundling up a lot of useful features like intensity and radius coverage which is severely underrated. The option to choose thunder sounds for impeding rain is a nice little reminder of the real thing coming. Keep up the great work!
This is awesome, I used this almost 3 years, definitely no other can do as good as this RainAlarm, I may still keep using this free version, instead, I am getting the full version just want to be supportived for the creator's effort.
This is possibly the best and most utilized app on my phone. It tells you how far away the rain is, the strength, and the surface area so you have a clear idea of what to expect. It’s seriously so useful and I love the updated notifications that tell me how close the rain is getting.
as a severe weather spotter, observer with MPING and COCORAHS, I can tell you that this app is so useful, I can see precipitation very quickly and know if its in the area or not, highly recommended.
Better than the weather Channel
I would consider paying If the radius can be minimized to 5 miles instead of 10. I get a lot of rain notifications that are far away and just touch the 10 mile border Otherwise Great app!
This is a very useful and friendly app, I’ve been using it for years but the ads have become very invasive in the last versions.I understand that you should buy it to get rid of them but I cannot buy every single app just to make the ads go away, despite they’re cheap or not, it’s very annoying and you bother other people when you’re watching the app and suddenly a strong music or explosions promoting a game breaks the silence and your phone almost falls down from your hand. Instead of pushing me to buy the app, it makes me wish to uninstall it. Again, I like the app but this ad methodology that I can see on many apps are really anti-purchase. At least you could make the ads silent. It’s a bad practice that I can see in many apps lately and it is becoming a nightmare.
I’m a weather observer so this is a great app for me. I use it at work to alert me of close rain in case I’m away from the windows or if it appears close to the station with no warning. Three great options to add would be: 1. To be able to slow down the animation or choose from some playback speed options. Currently I find the animation too fast. I know you can pause but it would be better to see the flow and direction if it was about half the speed. 2. Add distance rings. It’s great when I get an alarm and it tells me how far away the rain is but when I’m just in the app and the rain is outside of my alarm circle it’s hard to tell the distance (especially because of the fast animation). 3. Add a loading wheel. Before the first image is loaded it is hard to tell if the app is doing anything or not because the bar that loads (turns blue) is completely grey and there is no other indicator the app is working. If you have a slow connection it would be easy to mistake there being no data or thinking the app is frozen/not working. I’ve adding this to my previous review: I live in Bermuda and work at the Weather Service here that you grab the radar data from. We have just updated our system and now I noticed that after the update your app does not have the data from our radar.
Great app. I appreciate the acuteness. I would highly recommend this app.
