Hoping my phone is just too new... Just downloaded the app onto my HTC One (Android 4.1.2), and the best performance experienced so far is random pics (sensitivity too high?) and a 2-3 second delay in response to a very bright bolt in view. A check of the pictures taken nets zero capture of any lightning bolts or flashes.
Great Little App! I hate it when I have my camera pointed in one direction and a gigantic bolt strikes in the opposite direction but thanks to the Lightning Trigger App I can have both areas covered! It's also great for sharing awesome lightning photos via Twitter or Facebook when it happens instead of waiting to get home to process photos. Marcelo Albuquerque @COSpotter_MJA
Galaxy S3 Worked just like it said it would. The camera would fire for even the CC flashes as well as CG that weren't in the cameras view. Well worth the money. :-)
Effective App Minus little Glitches This app works better than I expected in capturing individual Lightning Bolts in any lighting. The only problem is on occasion the app will stop working. Granted, this mainly happens when I initially load the app or try to open one of my two galleries.
Didn't Work On My S4 I bought this app last night when our Monsoon was rolling through and I had it set to 10, it took about 6 pictures and every single one of them was black. Even when taking the pix myself, I do a bit better than that. Wish I wouldn't have paid that much. :(
Does not work well on Nexus 5 No ongoing development or support.
Please upgrade to Manual Flash Calculator 2. Still free, but also better
