(Replaces OzRadar 3.1)
Android Mobile Phone App for Android 2.2 and later
Australian rain radar viewer.
Simple and easy to use.
OzRadar5 displays the most recent weather radar (rain) images for a selected location. It shows a map of your area with an overlay of the rain radar images.
OzRadar5 NEEDS a 3G or WIFI connection - or images take too long to load.
OzRadar5 shows moving rain images for the last 20min/half hour.
The app opens straight up into the last selected location. (Images are usually updated every 10 minutes).
The map can be zoomed in and out and can be dragged around the screen.
The image is copyright Australian Bureau of Meteorology.
Two image sizes are available - 128km radius and 512km radius.
The UT time is shown at the bottom of the image - add the time offset for your location to this to see the local time of the image.
eg. sydney=+10, perth=+8 :so UT:0210 = 12:10 sydney, 10:10 perth.
For quickest display, it is preferable to be on a wifi connection.
Add it to your home page and it is there at a moments notice to check with just the touch of a finger.
INSTRUCTIONS for USE:-The Perth WA image is the initial default.
