This could be a 5 Star app...

Seems to point out lightning pretty fast. Maps are good and info seems pretty accurate...


It claims to have an Apple Watch component, but all it does is tell you lightning detected then directs you to open the app on the phone!! WHY NOT JUST TELL ME HOW FAR AWAY THE CLOSEST STRIKE IS?? The app has the information, why can’t it just display that on the watch??

In my job, working around explosives is important to know when lightning is actively around and in Florida that’s often. But I can’t pull out my phone every time I get a watch notification.

Make the Apple Watch side more functional and this would be a 5 Star app, especially in my line of work.


Now the app is very useful, and gives me distances of lightning from my last known location to my notifications and my Apple Watch. Well done, 5 Star as promised!

The Apple Watch component is an actual Apple Watch app - you can find it by pressing the Digital Crown on the watch and then tapping on this app. It will show a list of the most recent strikes within your notification radius which you can tap on to find more information. In a future update, It will be made easier to open the Apple Watch app after you receive a notification.

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

Extremely useful

I don't buy a lot of apps. I tend to reserve my dollars for those that prove themselves so useful that I keep opening them up day after day. This is one of those. I will be minding my own business and suddenly my Apple Watch will bing that there was lightning 20 miles away. I had no clue there was a storm coming, but this app alerted me to it. For those of us who work or play out of doors, this is crucial information. Highly recommended.
