Sound data, app could use some work

The data in this app is pretty good, though users should be aware that as this data is provided by a grassroots network, it does not cover all areas. I watched lightning strike a mountain in east Idaho and had it on the map before the thunder got here (and minutes before RadarScope).

As far as the app itself goes, it is certainly functional, but could use some work. Thus far I have not been notified for a lightning strike within my set range, and when you zoom in and out the map struggles to load older lightning strikes.

It would be nice to be able to center on my location, or to be able to set the alert to always be at my location.

It would also be cool if this app used the same map as is available on their website, instead of using Apple Maps.

All in all, definitely worth it, but if you want dependable functionality probably just use the website. I look forward to seeing updates that improve this app.

Works great for Italy and USA

First note — I travel between Italy (Rome area) and the USA California and now Tennessee. I keep tabs on my home in the US when I’m gone, to assess and warn family. I have been using this app at least 5 years. It works GREAT for all of my uses. I read some other reviews about WiFi issues, or location issues. ALL WORKS FOR ME!! Yes, I’m shouting in that way because I think this app is stupendous. In Italy we’ve had bad storms run thru, and lightning issues. This app helped me see that pattern as it was happening, so my guy and I knew and could prepare. Additionally it gives me a sense of calm to see it when there’s a big storm going through where my elderly parents live. It’s the best app I’ve found, for free, vs others for free. In fact, when I looked at sources for others, it was THIS APP. Haha, that was a winner for me.
