Raindar Description

Rain coming? Check Raindar! Animated Doppler radar on Google Maps for the US. Now also on Google TV and tablet!

Going somewhere and you're not sure if you need to bring your umbrella? Want to check if there's going to be fresh powder snow on the slopes in Tahoe tomorrow? Check Raindar! Raindar displays animated Doppler radar images on your Google Map. When you start Raindar it automatically focuses on your location so you can quickly see if there is precipitation coming your way. When pressing the search button on your phone you can now also search for locations within the US!

Raindar works out of the box but has many configuration options (see the recent changes page).

- green/yellow/red is rain
- blue/white is snow

Raindar can now also display storm tracks! It displays different icons for each of the 4 types of storms:

- Yellow circle: thunderstorm
- Yellow square: Hail Storm
- Yellow diamond: Rotating Thunderstorm (Mesocyclone)
- Magenta triangle: Tornado Vortex Signature (pretty heavy!)

When clicking on one of those icons a dialog will appear with detailed information.
The storm tracks also display the direction and speed of the storm in the form of an arc. The arc is split in 3 parts: 20, 40 and 60 minutes until the storm reaches that area.

On Google TV:
- Use the D-pad for navigate up/down/left/right
- Use the media forward/back or next/previous buttons to zoom in and out

AwesomenessI LOVE THIS APP! It works great on my Samsung galaxy s2 skyrocket, it only takes a few seconds to adjust when you move the.screen. I havent had any problems crashing so far. And I love how far you can zoom in :)
Detail mattersNice weather app loads fast displays wind direction on map locations within storms which marks it easy to understand how a storm is moving. The map and radar are really detailed even on Asus prime. Set up was automatic. You can change frame rate.
Absolutely AwesomeThis app is great!!! Puts weather onto Google maps. You can even see if traffic is effected by the weather. Storm paths and speeds. Awesome. A must have for sailing, hiking, biking... or anything outdoors. Only thing missing is a setting for watch/warning areas and an alarm if your location has a watch/warning. Add that and I would rate it 5 stars.
