A very handy little app to avoid getting struck by lightning. I use this when in Slovakia as thunder storms can appear very quickly up in the mountains with no forewarning. My only suggestion would be to change the app to just taping anywhere on the screen as your preoccupied looking at the sky (and not at your phone). Press once for the flash and another for when you hear the thunder. Much simpler :) Also the ability to keep the screen awake whilst using the app as it will go off as per your settings.
With me being a storm spotter for the Tonawanda, NY area, this is a very helpful app to calculate the time between the lightning flash and the crack of thunder afterward and it is also a very helpful app to calculate the distance between you and the thunderstorm. If I were you developers, keep up the good work. Thanks
Awesome Its cool it warned me about lightning and I took a pic my sis posted on Instagram and got 3 million likes
USA only Sadly in miles so not much good for most of the world.
Simple and effective! Thanks! Shows distance while waiting for thunder to strike. Fun to use and a great safety tool.
Good Looks good, can't wait to test it on real storm!

New feature: The History page shows the elapsed time between now and the last entry (up to 99 hours). This is a convenient way to tell how long it's been since the storm has past. This was a user-request - keep them coming!
