Irish Rain for the Palm Pre

I’ve just released a useful little free application for the Palm Pre called Irish Rain.  It’s a weather application that shows the satellite footage for the last three hours of rainfall over Ireland.  Rather than having to rely on vague and often wrong weather forecasts, you can look at where the rain has been for the last three hours, with the map being animated so you can see the direction it is heading.

Irish Rain also shows the weather forecast for the today and tomorrow, for the main cities of Ireland.

For installation instructions, see

Update: I’ve now also submitted it as a free app to the Palm App Catalog.

  1. I often refer to the Met Eireann site for this so I can see the usefulness of the app (just need a Pre!).

    To be precise, the data comes from radar stations at Dublin and Shannon airports, rather than a satellite.

  2. Ah, so it’s radar data, not satellite data? Cool, good to know, thanks.

    And yes, you do need a Pre 😉 I bought one a month ago, and as both a developer and a user I’m pretty much blown away. WebOS is easily the best mobile OS out there right now.
