This variant of the app is aimed at older devices. A better choice with more background map types is "Rain Alarm".

This weather app warns you when rain is currently nearing. Instead of forecasting it warns using almost real-time data, which is more precise than any forecast can be. It is an useful assistant for everything outdoors like cycling, biking, hiking, gardening, BBQ, picnics, walking the dogs, home improvement and more.

- warns for any type of precipitation, may it be rain, snow or hail
- warning as notification, vibration and/or sound
- precipitation map view
- widgets in different sizes and themes
