Always safe with Lightning Alarm. You will be notified if a thunderstorm is in your area. The lightning detection is very accurate and the (automated) notifications are essential for safe outdoor activities.
At a glance you can see the nearest lightning. Displayed on the map and in text, you see the current distance from the thunderstorm to your location. You can even set up a push message, notifying you for approaching storms.
This App is unique and a must for your safety during outdoor activities. The information is based on the detection network of Meteoplaza.com. With this network 98% of all lightning discharges are detected, resulting in a high quality of the warnings!
Lightning Alarm, you have been warned!

What's New in Version 1.4.6.

By popular demand we have added miles as a distance unit! In addition, we have made some optimizations to our map, especially the images have become sharper. Finally, we fixed some bugs.

Used to work..not now

Version 1.4.5.
Do not see the lightening bolts anymore. There is a storm now...app shows nothing.


Version 1.4.4
We are currently in the middle of an electrical storm, and the app shows nothing. Since the last update it’s not worked. Please fix’

Strikes Out

Version 1.4.1
I do like this lightning app and usually it works well. However, in recent times even though push notifications are fully set up.
The app won’t alert me of lightning within my area at all. Push Notifications are not working. Please fix this as it’s useless without the push notifications

Let’s me know when a storm is coming

Version 1.4.1

Lightning Review

Invaluable app for construction crane operations especially in Darwin Australia during the monsoon season

Rain on Radar map

rbrb fbth eg4)4?
Version 1.4.1
The rain doesn’t work very often? It only shows lightning bolts and yes I have pressed the rain off on button. It just doesn’t work. 1 out of 100 tries it works and it’s great. It mostly never works. Disappointing. Would be great otherwise.

Great app

Version 1.4.1
Awesome app always good to get notifications

Informative but slow

Version 1.4.1
Does a good job. But is slow to show strikes.

Version 1.4.1
When I zoom in on the map, it always zooms back out, also I'm not sure if this follows my location, it knows where I am but doesn't seem to move, whole thing isn't as interactive as I thought it would be so it's not a great app, it's not the worst app, it's just meh

Works well
