The original Android Lightning distance calculator.  Press the top button when you see the flash, press the bottom one when you hear the thunder.  The distance is shown in Miles and KM, up to 20 Miles.  If you like, you can also start and stop the timer with the Camera button, trackball, or D-Pad.

Fun and educational, it's also useful for outdoor activities where lightning may be a hazard (handy for lifeguards, referees, playground helpers, etc.).

Not recommended for artillery spotting...

Good Looks good, can't wait to test it on real storm!

Simple & Works Nice small simple app that does a great job & no ads or data used to drain the battery. Wish these apps could also dim the screen as an option to save more power as some storms can be quite long for use with a not fully charged phone. I like this app best.

. It's easy to use & moves to sdcard. Great fun when safe inside & you're watching the storm. Gives you something to do when the electricity fails.

I have tested app over the summer ('11). Nice tool. I am a local severe weather spotter with EMA. Can be used inside or in the field for spotting.
