Very Misleading


This app is going to get someone killed. There is no such thing as any sort of free real time lightning detection. As this app builder may want to research there are some big legalities behind providing lightning data to the public. I use a commercial weather company which does provide real time lightning data provided by the NLDN. In the example I just ran it shows 1 strike about 12 miles from my location. Where my commercial app shows 179 within my 8 mile “do not be outside” range. I let this app run for 15 minutes as it again states and nothing changed. If you need this for more then personal use do some research on real weather companies.

Lightening app


I found this app in a search and thought it would benefit my service as a flight instructor...maybe. I have not been able to make it locate my position. As such, it defaults to Europe when opening. Seems to be accurate and updated in the pictorial display.

Update: With a little review, I found the error is mine. This app now works great!

Developer Response

Hi, you can change the region the app uses by opening the app, tapping the gear icon in the top bar and then going into "More". You'll see an option called "Show" which you can change to any region you want (including the whole world).

Essential application for safety


This app can and is a lifesaver if you have children at the park. Remember go to your car if lightning is nearby because your car is safe. Don’t attempt to drive if it’s raining so hard you cannot see. Do not drive through water there is covering the road away
