Best lightning alert app out there right now
Let me start off by saying that I very rarely write reviews for apps. That being said, We have a pool and kids and I have been searching for a good lightning proximity alert app for a while now. I have tried several and this one is by far the best I have seen. The last one that I tried, crashed on my IOS device constantly. This one has yet to crash once but even if it did, it would be fine as I expect occasional crashes from every app that I use; Just the nature of the beast. There are many more features to this app as well like radar, future forecast, etc. It took me a while to find the Lightning alert functionality however once I found it, i discovered that it was exactly what I was looking for. BTW, the Lightning proximity functionality is under the "Spark" portion of the application. It is great. It gives you the closest lightning strike to your location over the past 30 minutes and auto updates constantly. To the developers, great job with this app. I love it. Thank you. 😄
Spot on with lightning notification
Had a parent monitor this app while I ran practice. Spot on with lightning in area. As soon as lightning was within 10 miles, we packed up and got kids to cars. Few minutes later all heck broke loose with lightning and thunder over top of us. Came on quick. If we didn't use app, we would have been. No brainer to use this for games, tourneys, and practices. I'll use in my personal life too.
Best weather app for outdoor sports and every day!
I have used a few weather apps, but this is hands down the best one out there. The details, hourly forecasts and 10-day outlooks give you more information than any other weather app! The know before function and spark technology has helped keep me safe in multiple instances. Its a must have app for any Little League coach, volunteer, or parent.
