You can also easily drag across the map and locate a place and its real time precipitation details, more precisely. Switch between map and satellite views to view any location.

The Rain Alarm app shows real time animated data for a defined period of time (animation rate). The animation rate can be selected from 30 minutes to 120 minutes. The animation interval, i.e. the number of frames of animations, can be changed as well. The animation interval varies from 2 images, to 13 images. An increased animation interval shows data for a longer duration, while low animation interval provides rain activity data for a short interval.

Units to reflect the wind speed can be switched between miles per hour, and kilometers per hour. The cloud’s animation can be easily paused and back/forward option let you browse through paused cloud frames, anytime.  The App tile of Rain Alarm can also show live data, and it can be turned on or off.
