Excellent App 5/5
No complaints, works as advertised. I’m going to try the paid version now that I’ve seen the capability of this app.

Won’t let me update the locations
Very Misleading 1/5
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 3/5
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.
Essential application for safety 5/5
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
I like how it has you to show that it shows lightning
Lightning app 1/5
Not very useful for the free version, therefore would my upgrade to paid version.
Reason for colors 5/5
By Patsy's Favorite
Can you tell us newbies what the different colored circles mean? Blue is where I am but why the other different colors? Thank you.
Great! But not should have faqs 4/5
If you could indicate what the yellow and red dots are that would be great. What is the difference??
Pretty good app 3/5
By Seaturtle Knits
The only thing I would like to see change is the radius circle. I would like to see it on the lightning strike map. I work at a job where we have to evacuate when lightning is within 7 miles. This is difficult when you can’t see the line.
Love it but... 5/5
I don’t know what kind of technology goes into this so I don’t know if this is possible but is there a way you could indicate whether the lightning was CC/IC or CG?
It’d be helpful to know if it’s striking the ground
Great app 5/5
Works great and consistently. Did a previous version show sound wave from strike location for thunder?
Excellent App 5/5
This app does exactly what it promises and sends notifications of lightning strikes in the area - reliably. Definitely meets my need. I live on the beach and lightning is a huge concern. Thanks!!!!
Thumbs up 5/5

Fast and accurate
Lightning app 5/5
Great information service. Down to the yard where the bolt struck. Thunder 1 notification sound jolts me from my chair before the actual sound arrives. Cluster lightning dots on map give regenerates my respect for nature. We get a lot of bolts in this neck of the woods.
More Options Please! 4/5
By Ron "Bad Amp" Ford
Great App, could use a few more control options.
It does what it says 4/5
It does what it says and shows lightning. It is nice it zooms to nearer lightning near you. It would be a lot better if you could get a radar overly though.
By thorguard la
I love this app. Can’t wait to get the pro version.
App works well. 5/5
I got the app for use when I ride my road bicycle. Getting caught in an electrical storm is no fun. Also, I use the app when I am on my ham radio.
Thus far, it seems to be accurate and has not let me down.
Click bait 1/5
Notifications gave me phony Walmart gift card giveaway ads that I had to leave app to close!
Unusable on 4s 1/5
Love the concept but the app crashes as soon as I open it. No use to me at all.
Crappy app 1/5
By Dr. Rojo
Not real helpful.
Lightning app 5/5
By ham radio geek
So far it has worked great. Easy to set up and forget. Until the clouds start making noise. Five stars, thank you.
Weather bug lightning app much better
It works! 5/5
Detection and distance of lightning strikes are critical to safety. This app is very good.
This works quite reliably. The only issue I have is there is a lag, sometimes significant, between when lightning strikes and notifications.
The best!!! 5/5
By AKG's iPhone
The best of the best 👌🤙👍🏻. Comes in very handy while working.
One Of my favorites 5/5
Crashing on iPhone 6s 2/5
Previous version was constantly crashing today. Upgraded version. Still crashing on iOS 11.2.6 at startup. Only way to prevent crash is to hit the settings icon during startup… but when you exit settings to the map screen… CRASH
Do not buy this app it is no good has no usual value whatsoever
By Bradley (Bubby)
Great application for tracking lightning.
Not good for here 1/5
Lots of lightening in Nebraska. I live in Washington watching lightening out my window, but this appt doesn’t show any lightening in Washington state. Personally I don’t think it works 😟
Only alerts from your current location 4/5
I love this app, but I wish I could have it alert me when lightning is around specific locations instead of it just following my location. I work as a swim instructor so knowing if lightning is occurring at the pool I'm teaching in when I'm driving to it would be really helpful!
Great App 5/5
Keeps you and your kids safe and informed.
Football Practice 4/5
We use the app for football practice daily. We get pop up thunderstorms all the time in south Louisiana and this app makes it easier to keep everyone safe.
Rate app 3/5
By Elwood Sack
Very helpful in oilfield. We watch for weather moving in every day.
Works good! 5/5
Works good but it has been locking up on the initial review menu.
Good but imperfect 3/5
Nice information to get and seems to be accurate. But app hangs up and I have to reboot phone to get it working again. Also difficult to get coverage range to be within a couple of miles of our location; app likes to show much wider coverage area.
My Lightning tracker 5/5
I have many weather apps, I find this one to be one of the most useful.
Too slow 1/5
Too slow.... obsessed with ratings and ads.... Spark is more accurate and faster....
Great App For Safety 5/5
Awesome for the safety of my crews in the field. Would buy the app but don't see any difference between it and the free one so just got the free one. If there is a big difference then please let us know cause if it warrants buying it I will!
Location, location why? 5/5
Don't like the fact that it tracks your location even when your not using it. Should have the option to turn on the location only when using the app.
With update that location will be revised that the option to choose location only when using app. I think it rates 5⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️
Nice to know when and where the lightning is! I swim and need to k ow the danger...
Great for neighborhood pools 5/5
By Aunt Nita 2010
This is great to have as the neighborhood pool closes 20 mins after thunder or 20 miles of a lightening strike. Let's us know if ok to go.
Love it a lot 5/5
My dog is afraid to death of thunder and lightning...Gives me plenty of warning to our him in cellar with radio on loud to drown out thunder!!!
Use weekly 5/5
Great alerts nice map now I see all the extras and alerts and here we are on vacation at an amusement park so the time is PERFECT!! Ty!!
Great app 5/5
Very handy for reviewing Florida lightning.
Very useful for outside work to keep employees safe.
On point 5/5
This lightning strike app is perfect for planning out your swim days.
