On the map a blue circle indicate where the thunderbolt has fallen.

Excellent! I really like this app, it works brilliantly. How about an ad free version for the 5th star - I'd be more than happy to pay for a 'pro' version! (Samsung Galaxy W)

Very nice, indeed Way back when I was a meteorology student this app would have been great! Anyone whoj enjoys the outdoors should have this app. Please remember, if you can hear thunder, you can be struck by lightening! Please be careful! Great job on the GPS component. None of the other free apps I tried have that feature.
