It works by analyzing the sound of wind passing the device microphone.
Wind Meter includes compass integration, so you can easily find wind direction too.
The application includes a wind speed converter.
Wind Meter supports multiple units of measure including MPH, Knots, Km/h, m/s and dynamic Beaufort scale.
There is an ability to calibrate your phone model to obtain more accurate results.
This application is not meant to be used in place of scientific instrumentation, but it can come close to real anemometer device.
Wind Meter is ideal for Windsurfing, Kitesurfing, Kiteboarding, Snowkiting or Gliding.
Fun and educational, it's also useful for outdoor activities where lightning may be a hazard (handy for lifeguards, referees, playground helpers, etc.).
Not recommended for artillery spotting...
Suggestions welcome - please email me.

**** SECURITY NOTICE ****
Lightning uses the following permissions ONLY:
Modify/delete SD card contents. Not that it really *does* anything with the SD card...
Prevent phone from sleeping
Read phone state and identity
The last one is a result of building for Android 1.6 compatibility - Lightning does *NOT* actually access the phone information in any way.
How to use:
Press the lightning button when you see the flash then press the thunder when you hear the rumble.
* You can check distance on graph to know if thunder is coming to you
* You can check thunder area on map based on your GPS location and storm distance
thunder, storm, lightning, calculator
- realtime display of lightning data
- display of historical lightning data of the last 24 hours
- support for regions Europe, USA and Australia/New Zealand
- lightning strike time color coded
- reduced data volume and fast response
- current lightning strike time and lightning count
- optional user location display
- alarm function shows distance/direction of storms
- alarm background service
- support for notifications and vibration alarm
- single stroke display for blitzortung.org participants
The raster display ensures a fast performance of the application even if there is a very high thunderstorm activity. Blitzortung.org participants can visualize all stroke locations individually.

Please note that version 1.1.0 does not work on devices where freed wakelocks do not ignore the timeout if they are already free, but crash the application instead. This is solved with 1.1.1
Operating instructions :
-Touch the screen a first time when you see the flash of lightning.
-Touch a second time when you hear the thunder.
==>The distance from you to the impact point will be displayed and you will have the possibility to choose to view the result on a map, view the measurements history or make a new measurement.
On the map a blue circle indicate where the thunderbolt has fallen.
How does it work ?
This application uses the difference of speed between light and sound, in fact the light of the lightning reaches you almost instantaneously while the sound takes several seconds to run through the distance between you and the place where the thunderbolt has fallen.
By measuring this duration, this applications calculates the distance ...
This application can be store on SD card !!!
Activation of the GPS is not necessary but with it you can be located more precisely rather than by means of cellular networks.
A paid version without ads is available.

This program calculate the distance between you and the lightning by using an easy to use interface.
It will show the distanse in meter or feet, and a history of the 5 last distances will give you an indication of the movement of the lightning.
Science of Lightning:
Lightning is an atmospheric electrostatic discharge (spark) accompanied by thunder, which typically occurs during thunderstorms,and sometimes during volcanic eruptions or dust storms.
From this discharge of atmospheric electricity, a leader of a bolt of lightning can travel at speeds of 220,000 km/h (140,000 mph), and can reach temperatures approaching 30,000 °C (54,000 °F), hot enough to fuse silica sand into glass channels known as fulgurites which are normally hollow and can extend some distance into the ground.
There are some 16 million lightning storms in the world every year. Lightning causes ionisation in the air through which it travels, leading to the formation of nitric oxide and ultimately, nitric acid, of benefit to plant life below.
Lightning can also occur within the ash clouds from volcanic eruptions, or can be caused by violent forest fires which generate sufficient dust to create a static charge.
How lightning initially forms is still a matter of debate: Scientists have studied root causes ranging from atmospheric perturbations (wind, humidity, friction, and atmospheric pressure) to the impact of solar wind and accumulation of charged solar particles. Ice inside a cloud is thought to be a key element in lightning development, and may cause a forcible separation of positive and negative charges within the cloud, thus assisting in the formation of lightning.
The irrational fear of lightning (and thunder) is astraphobia. The study or science of lightning is called fulminology, and someone who studies lightning is referred to as a fulminologist.
This easy to use app, will let you estimate wind speed with your android device.
WSM is a must app when practicing wind sports such as Kite Surf, Wind Surf or Sailing.

- Includes Simple Calibrator.
WSM is simple and easy to use.
Just download WSM, press start button, and start measuring wind.
App inculdes different help guides.
Interface has been specifically designed as user friendly UI, for diferent device resolutions.
How does WSM estimate wind?
WSM uses your deivce mic to detect wind noise.
Wind noise signal is then processed using audio and signal management technics.
Signal is filtered at special wind noise frequencies to avoid other sound interferences.
The filtered signal is then compared with real anemometer measurements at different wind ranges, processed and converted to a human readable wind measure value.

Lightning Finder displays current lightning strikes in near real time for the contiguous 48 States, Mexico, Puerto Rico, portions of Central America and the Caribbean Islands for one year from your purchase date, renewable annually.
Unlike other lightning applications, we offer a complete national lightning strike map designed for full resolution on your mobile device. Use standard gestures to move around the national map, pinch to zoom in and out. Investigate storm cells and lightning strikes nationwide with radar and cloud cover overlays as well as radar looping. The map can be viewed in Standard, Satellite or Hybrid mode. All strikes are colored coded so you can visually determine its age. Red is 0-5 minutes, orange 5-15 minutes and yellow is older than 15 minutes.
Use your current location or press and hold the map to display detailed lightning information with a displayable safety perimeter showing the 3, 6 and 10 mile safety boundaries. All strikes within a 25 mile radius of your current location or configured zip code are displayed with full accuracy. Outside of your area, regional strikes are displayed with 10 mile resolution. You may change your zip code as often as you like to view areas of interest.
Use the included alarm service to configure Text Messaging alerts based on your location or configured zip code. This service will send an SMS message to your phone when lightning is detected within your safety perimeter. All major carriers are supported for Text Messaging.
Lightning data is provided in 'near real time' by the North American Precision Lightning Network. Lightning data is not guaranteed nor is the timeliness of delivery. Do not use this application for personal safety. This application only maps lightning strikes that have already occurred and does not predict future strikes or locations.
