Lightning tracker

First time using it with storms in almost all-quadrants; spot markings seem to agree with visual reference as strikes were mostly well defined bolts so that reference on the app screen could be easily confirmed. I need to work more with the app. Advertisements were not too intrusive and relatively easy to look at.

No distance? Am I missing something?

It’s really cool, though the important metric for basically every single outdoor sport is, no lightning within the last 30 minutes. This only shows different colored dots for up to 10 minutes old. It would be much better if it would show a different color for strikes up to 30 minutes old. Secondly, without any distance on the map, there’s no way to know how close the lightning is to you. 10 miles is the magic number. Please put some kind of distance marker on the map - or I’m missing the setting to add it.

Good Start

As an athletic trainer and my responsibility to keep safety of athletes in mind I’m constantly looking for new apps that are better and more consistent with exact distance. I think this could be pretty good for what I need. Needs some more options and maybe where everything is at but I like how It shows where exactly and different colors for time away but wish It had exact time. Because for me I need any lightening within ten miles activity is held for 30 minutes if this could do that, could be huge for my line of work for athletic trainers and coaches!!
