WeatherBug recently updated the feature called Spark on our popular Android and iPhone apps, effectively turning your smartphone into a personal lightning detector.
Giving you the precise distance of lightning strikes to your current location and/or saved locations, Spark helps you stay safe from lightning, which is especially important if you or your loved ones spend a lot of time outdoors.
The app also color codes how safe you are. A green number indicates that you are safe, but as the key approaches red your risk increases. A map is available if you want to see exactly where and how many strikes have been detected by the WeatherBug network.
WeatherBug users are finding Spark useful and have been expressing it through social media. We are absolutely THRILLED! =)
Here are Twitter posts from a few of our users. Thank you so much for the love:
But don’t take their word for it, try it for yourself!
