The base of this app is google-maps.
The app is still under development, looking have a look on our Facebook page:
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.
-Near real time lightning map of the contiguous 48 States, Mexico, Puerto Rico, portions of Central America and the Caribbean Islands
-Full map features and standard gestures
-Radar and Cloud Cover (Infrared) overlays
-Color coded strikes.
-Text message alerts
Lightning Finder is now a subscription based service so you get one full year of service from your purchase date or renew date. Each year of service is $5.99 and is charged to your account at confirmation of purchase.
The settings allow you to decide how far you wish to detect strikes from your location, whether you want a vibration alert and also what distance you want a vibration alert. The app also allows you to decide on a range of "quiet times" when the app will not alert you to close strikes.
The default frequency to check the nearby strikes is every 2 minutes but this can also be changed.
The app will then scan around your location and "listen out" for nearby strikes. If any are detected it will display the distance from the strike (and colour code this depending on how close it is) as well as telling you the direction it was detected from your location.
This app is a must have not just for storm chasers but anyone who loves thunderstorms or takes part in sports or recreation where being outside near a thunderstorm is not a great idea (golfers? ;-))
The map has the standard pinch/zoom capability which allows you to smoothly zoom and pan around the United States and see what the weather is like anywhere.
MyRadar shows animated weather, so you can tell if rain is headed toward or away from you, and how fast.
In addition to the free features of the app, a few additional upgrades are available; see severe storm warnings for your area, as provided by the National Weather Service, and real-time hurricane tracking - great for the start of hurricane season!
MyRadar currently only shows weather in the United States, and only in the 48 contiguous states - not Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico.
Download MyRadar today and try it out!

This vital sports application is designed with administrators, coaches, players and parents in mind.

Lightning alerts are sent when a lightning strike is first detected within 6 miles of your location and an all clear is sent when no lightning is detected within that range for 30 minutes. These distance rules are recommended by lightning experts and adhered to by NCAA, NFHS, and other sports associations to ensure safety while outdoors.
