iLightningCam Lite - Lightning Strike Photography

By Florian Stiassny

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Real-time lightning photography with iPhone made easy
The first photo app that enables everyone to take spectacular pictures of real lighting strikes with an iPhone!

This is the free Lite version of iLightningCam 1!
It offers all features of the full app, but pictures can only be saved with low quality (0,2 MP). For full 8MP resolution please buy our complete new iLightningCam 2!

NEW VERSION 8.06 !!!

Support for iPhone 6 und 6Plus, iPad Air 2
Enhanced for the new features of iOS8.
-iLightningCam saves the focus settings.
-The exposure settings are now set automatically (no more torch).

iLightningCam uses true real-time recognition of lightning strikes. Once recognized, your iPhone takes a picture of the recognized lightning in up to 8MP (camera mode) or full HD (video mode). And yes - your iPhone is fast enough!
You only need a good view on a real thunderstorm.

The app works free hand. Just point your iPhone towards the scene/part of the sky/thunderstorm where you expect the next lightning, start the app iLightningCam, choose video or photo mode and wait, the app will automatically press the trigger/shutter if a lightning is detected in your view.

Lightning storms are life threatening for you and your phone!!! Take care using this app! Do not take any risks and avoid exposure to thunderstorms! Use this app only in lightning and storm protected places. You are solely responsible for your actions and adverse consequences. Read full safety warning in the instructions page, before using this app.
Who is it not for: It is not for children and it is not for mentally handicapped persons, as they may have not the ability to protect themselves against lightning or the associated storm.

Love it

I use both versions of the app the original and the second Version
They both work very well
Have gotten some phenomenal lightning photos. Not disappointed that's for sure. If you don't have this app you need to try it for the new user will take a little getting used to but it's worth it

Love it

Simply amazing !! So easy to use. Spectacular images. Love Love Love this app. Thank you. Finally something I paid for and actually love it. :)


Tried the camera and ended up with 4 pictures that I don't know how they got there. There is no visible tap button on screen and it's impossible to get the pic you want when you don't know where the button is. Please add visible tap button on the screen.
