Nice Weather App!!!!

I’m a hobby photographer and have a Davis VP2 weather station here at the house. So between those two hobbies I got interested in photographing lightning storms.

Being down here in south Alabama we don’t have the wide open flat land like in the midwestern areas where you can see a storm fifty miles away...if you don’t know they’re coming the storms can be on you around here before you know...and too late to set up cameras.

With My Lightning Tracker I can see a line of storms coming into my area and be set up for them when they get here.

The alerts are great in letting you know early on that there is lightning activity in the area that you’ve defined.

The app also has a radar included and with this I’m able to get a good weather picture in my mind of what is going on and whether I want to set up my cameras. Now, if I can just get my lightening photography skills honed some!!!

There’s really no difference between the free and paid/“Pro” versions other than that th ad bar at the bottom of the screen is removed in the paid version. But, I was impressed enough with the app that I felt the app’s authors deserved a little something. It’s a nice app if your interested in weather and lightning specifically.

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. !
