iLightningCam Lite - Lightning Strike Photography

By Florian Stiassny

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


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!
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 iLightningCam!

NEW VERSION 7.10 !!!
Optimized for extreme speed with the 5s!
Still very fast with the iPhone 4.

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.
