Accurate tracking, immediate notification

I am a retired paramedic, and knowing what I know due to calls envolving lightning strikes, I would not be without this app. I found the Lightning Pro app a few years ago after “gaining invaluable knowledge” regarding a strike related injury on a seemingly beautiful summer afternoon. (I was not the victim...but I was shaken after responding to the call for the person that was). I was grateful to find such an app even existed, and even more grateful for it’s ability to accurately forewarn of the presence of lightning during rapidly changing conditions. There have been some great additions to the app, including a meteorologist grade radar. Keep in mind, it can only save you if you act appropriately to the information it provides.

Recommend going to the Pro ver.

I’ve been using the free version all summer. I’ve found it to be a great indicator of what’s in my area. I start to hear the detector going off even with the app closed. When it starts to get frequent then I open the app to see just what’s going on. It’s my early warning detector of storms that has really worked good for me! I have my radius set out at just over 60 miles to give me advanced warning.
Today I upgraded to the Pro ver and was pleasantly impressed at the additional info I can get in just a tap on a strike like distance from the strike to my location. Nice. !

Very good app

This app is very helpful but I have some tips that I would love to see in later updates. When the lightning strikes and it alerts you, it would be nice for the alert to say how far away the lightning was. For example: Lightning strike 6.7 miles from your location. That would be better than having to open the app to see where it struck. Also I would like to see an option of it alerting you once every minute that lightning strikes in the area instead of it alerting you once every 10 minutes. If this option was to be enabled, that is when it would be helpful for the exact location to be alerted through notifications. That is all the tips I got, I still love the app but I think this would make it better. Thank you
